My least favorite thing that Maybelline does is heavily scent (to the point where they sometimes result in off-tastes) their lip products. I love their lipsticks, which have always been one of their strongest areas.

Win It! We’re Giving Away $500+ in Temptalia’s Holiday Favorites!

It’s become an annual tradition to kick off the sale extravaganza that is Black Friday/Cyber Monday with a giveaway featuring my personal favorites!  We’ve partnered with Ebates to give away two sets of prizes; the first one is valued at $300 and the second one is valued at $213 (see above image for what’s included in each set).  The giveaway is open to U.S. residents with a valid Ebates account–if you haven’t already signed-up, sign-up here!

New to Ebates? Ebates helps you save money by giving you cash back on your online purchases at over 2,000 retailers, including ones like Sephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom! Right now, you’ll get a $10 welcome bonus when you join and make your first purchase of $25 or more. For example, if a retailer has 10% cash back, and you make a $50 purchase, you’ll get $5 cash back (plus your $10 welcome bonus if it is your first purchase of $25+ through Ebates), which is paid out on a quarterly basis by check or PayPal. There’s no cost or fee to you; you just have to shop through Ebates before you make your purchase.
