What is your biggest annoyance/concern with eyeshadows? (e.g. texture, pigmentation, finish, etc.)

I hate eyeshadows with bad texture. I don’t want chunky, powdery, or chalky eyeshadows!

Welcome to Free For Haul Fridays!

A play on Oh No They Didn’t’s “Free For All Fridays,” every Friday is Free For Haul Fridays! Friday is a day for fun — whether you’re already off enjoying your weekend or if you just need a way to get through til the end of the work day, FFH is here for you!

Share your latest beauty hauls! Once you’ve done that… say anything you’d like. Tell us about the greatest thing that happened to you this week, why your pet is the cutest, what you’re doing this weekend… whatever!

First, I’ll share mine!

MAC Too Fabulous goodies (all of the lip pencils, Loud & Lovely cremesheen glass, Two Virtues mineralize blush); China Glaze polishes (too many to name, haha).

It’s been an incredible week, really…  Temptalia received 1,000,000 visits in the past month!!  It’s a huge, huge milestone for me personally (never managed or been a part of a site or had an audience so large before).  I remember when I did AOL ‘zines and 5,000 subscribers was impressive, ha!

Behind the cut, I included a photo of Willy (who I said goodbye to last weekend), and then Mellan in his St. Patricks’ Day garb… Mellan is such a good sport, letting me dress him up!

Now… have at it!

My pics for the week! Continue reading →
