Temptalia Asks You

Do you like your makeup scented? Never?  Only certain products?  Only certain scents?

Temptalia's AnswerI prefer the majority of my makeup to be fragrance-free, though I don’t think I react poorly to it, so it doesn’t bother me.  I like my lip products scented, though.  I think my favorite scent must be lemon, but I also like vanilla.

How do you budget for your beauty purchases? Do you work it out in advance? Stick to a limit?

Temptalia's AnswerI look ahead and see what’s coming out, and then I try to limit my other purchases (entertainment, clothes, shoes, etc.) so I can put more towards the collections/products that interest me most.

Temptalia Asks You

How important is packaging to you [in a beauty product]? What do you look for?  What about pretty/cute packaging?

Temptalia's AnswerFirst and foremost, I want functional packaging. I want it to be airtight if it needs to be, pump out just enough for one use if that’s the case, and so on. Cute/pretty is nice, but I’d rather functionality and storability – I don’t want tons of excess packaging!
