Temptalia Asks You


What do you do with cream products that have dried out? Do you try to salvage them? How? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’ve heard that Inglot’s Duraline works really well for this purpose, but I don’t think I have it. I’d probably toss, though, given my needs.

Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: Bite Beauty’s April shade (arrived late yesterday, hoping to photograph + dupe it today), MAC Of Beauty x2 eyeshadows, ColourPop In Bloom (another late arrival yesterday, can’t wait to play with it today!)
  • Weekend plans: I’m in the process of reorganizing the “archives,” which is when I cull and remove duplicate shades (MAC, I’m looking at you and your repromotes!), look for brands that I don’t need to keep for archival purposes any longer (or formulas that have been discontinued and replaced, already compared and discussed – I’ll keep the current but take out the discontinued version), and generally straighten everything up.
  • What are you looking forward to most this April?: Warmer weather!

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! :)

What kind of products should be limited edition? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI like seasonal color collections, but I’d like to see more brands incorporate really bestselling limited edition shades into their permanent ranges when that color would fill in a gap. I don’t think skin care or mascara formulas should be limited edition.

How do you figure out what makeup to use each time you apply your makeup? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI keep makeup I’ve photographed but need to test in clear plastic bins, so then I rummage through there to figure out what to test next!
