Week in Review | April 15th through April 21st

Happy Saturday! I always enjoy seeing what makes up the week’s top ten highest-reviewed products, so I hope you find it somewhat interesting as well! 🙂  I didn’t get to use much that wasn’t for testing this week, but more recently, I have been enjoying Tom Ford’s Nude Dipp quite a bit. I took that quad along with Chanel’s Empreint du Desert and put them in my vanity as go-tos (when the mood strikes, when I need something foolproof for a big group of blush/lip photos). I’m pretty sure I found a way to wear MAC Fairly Precious and Estee Lauder Naked Truth into at least one look this week, too.

I use mostly pencil eyeliner, so I typically will apply to my lower lash line.
I find myself looking down slightly into a mirror and trying not to blink, haha! I do the same for lining my lower waterline,
which I don’t do quite as often. I like using eyeshadow to blow out the lower lash line and use pencil brushes to do so.

  • Haul: Tatcha Indigo Body Butter/Indigo Cream/Water Cream, Drunk Elephant Lala, Sephora Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes x2, Sephora Avocado Face Mask, Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray, Farmacy Clear Day Coconut Gel Face Mask Medley, Biossance Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil
  • Weekend plans: Try to stay cool! It’s getting to triple digits here in AZ! We’ll also head over to Phoenix to go to one of our favorite restaurants (Clever Koi).
  • Do you like theme parks?: I like Disneyland as I’m just a big fan of Disney (I think I’m almost as happy going to the Disney store, though, haha), but I’m not big on rollercoasters as I get motion sick very easily, which can wipe me out for an entire day.

A post shared by Christine M. (@temptalia) on

I gently curl my lashes first, working the curler from the base to the tips of my lashes.
After that, I apply one coat of mascara to my upper lashes on one side, then the other side, and then I go back with a second coat but in reverse (e.g. left/right and then right/left). I take what’s remaining on the brush and do my lower lashes after my upper lashes have tried; if it’s a drier mascara (or older), I might go back and do a second coat on my lower lashes as well. I usually do the “wiggle” method and try to get to the base of my lashes, then slowly wiggle the mascara wand up and out.
