Free for Haul Friday, Volume #363

Share any beauty goodies you may have picked up in the last week or so, or maybe what’s on your way or on your wish list for next week or month. 🙂

  • Haul: A few more holiday sets, but I’m not sure if I’ll review them yet so I don’t want to say!
  • Weekend plans: Catch-up! I visited my parents in California last week for a few days, so I’m a little bit behind on what I need to do for next week and really need to organize and prioritize. Aside from that, probably curl up on the floor with Mellan 🙂
  • When was the last time you traveled?: Last week, haha! I went to California for a few days.

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! 🙂

This week’s Mellan photo…

Happy #nationaldogday 🐶

I don’t mind if it’s explicitly stated as someone’s initial impressions (and if they did any testing/wear, I’d like to know what, even if it’s only been an hour or whatever!), but I like follow-ups as well. The one thing is I don’t want to see a lot of hyperbole before it’s been actually used – a lot of things are “pretty” at a glance.

Thanks to Elle for today's question!

What do you look for in a makeup review?

I look for someone who has actually tried the product as it was intended, not just swatched or opened the jar to take a smell — I want someone who can really tell about the texture, wear, how it sits or looks on skin, and go through pros/cons. I expect to see disclosures near the beginning of the review/not buried.
