Temptalia Asks You


Do you feel different if you aren’t wearing any makeup? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’m much more comfortable bare-faced today than I ever was when I was younger. Often, I feel the same either way, especially as the technology in foundations has improved so makeup feels lighter than ever, so it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything.

mac-pleasure-bomb-dupe-list

One shade that I routinely get asked for dupes is MAC Pleasure Bomb! It released in the last year, and it’s ultra matte finish makes it harder to dupe. I’ve pulled three possible dupes from our much longer list (you can check out the full list of dupes over at The Dupe List). I was torn between MAC Girl About Town and All Fired Up (both part of the permanent range), as neither is a perfect dupe (the first is cooler-toned, the latter too warm), but I think if you mix them, you can get really close for anyone looking to stay within MAC’s range.

Know of a dupe? Consider submitting it!

Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerIt can depend on brand and location. Sometimes there are incredibly knowledgeable, passionate people who work at the counter, and other times, it’s just a job that pays the bills.

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Finishing Powders!

my answer: Five years ago, I probably would have said, “What’s the point?” For the past couple of years, though, I’m all about a great finishing powder! They really do finish a look–and I think the effect is more noticeable in person, as it gives skin the look of real skin.
