Temptalia Asks You

What’s your current skincare regimen? What do you use in the morning/evening?

Temptalia's Answer.

In the AM, I use Mario Badescu cleanser followed by Cosmedix moisturizer. In the PM, I use Darphin Waterily cleanser, NARS toner, Korres Olive & Rye moisturizer.

When don’t you wear makeup? What makes you not wear makeup during those times?

Temptalia's Answer.

I usually wear little to zero makeup when I run super quick errands – like grabbing take out or picking up just one or two items at the store!

What are your thoughts on MAC’s Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection? Are you (or did you already!) going to buy anything? What? If not, what turned you off?

Temptalia's Answer.

Of course I’m going to buy! I gotta review it, yeah? :) At least, that’s the justification I use!

What do you consider a good sale when it comes to beauty brands? Buy 1, get 1? 20% off? 40% off?

Temptalia's Answer.

I like to see 30% off or more. I’d say 40% is my real “optimum” though. When it’s 30%, I still think on it a lot, at 40% I’m way more likely to buy (and buy more).

All I Want This Week is Korres

After falling completely in love with Korres’ Tinted Moisturizer, and finding their Silicone-Free Primer suited me well… I have been jonesin’ SO, so bad for the brand. I love their lipgloss, Guava lipstick (even if it’s a definite splurge item), and eyeshadows. Here are seven products I’m interested in trying next. Any input?

  • Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes ($12.00) grabbed my attention, because I am always on the hunt for softer wipes for my skin. Whenever I wear heavy eye makeup or a bold lip color, I use makeup removing wipes to take off some of that heavier color before I apply my facial cleanser. I tend not to use these too much all over my face, because I don’t find they’re as soothing as I’d like.
  • Korres Blush ($22.00) is available in eight shades, but I’m most drawn to #18 Peach and #47 Orange Brown. At $22, they’re a bit steeper than I’d like, but we shall see…
  • Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizer SPF 6 ($32.50) has been on my lemming list ever since I tried Korres’ Tinted Moisturizer. I’m always looking for a better moisturizer, and I’d love this one to be it. It’s affordable, and it looks like a great moisturizer for my normal to dry skin.
  • Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Antiwrinkle Day Cream SPF 10 ($48.00) is a moisturizer for the AM that contains anti-aging properties. It’s never too early to start, yeah?
  • Korres Cherry Full Color Gloss ($16.00) seems like a winning formula based off of the one shade I’ve tried thus far, but I am eager to try out some of their other shades, like Beige Pink, Golden Brown, and Fuchsia.
  • Korres Olive Stones Natural Scrub ($19.50) seems like a budget-friendly facial scrub, and if you’ve been a long time reader, you probably know I love me a good exfoliator! It’s currently out of stock on Sephora, but I might have to cave when it’s back in stock.
  • Korres Wild Rose Foundation ($28.00) is one of Korres’ products that I’ve heard raves about from others. I love liquid foundatoins, so I’m interested in seeing how this one works. I like the sound of a “smooth, velvety finish.” With only six shades to choose from, I’m not sure where I lie. Anyone else who’s NC25/NC30 found their shade in this product?
