Stop by your nearest La Prairie counter at Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, or Saks Fifth Avenue for an at-counter skincare consultation.

Temptalia Asks You


When you get a new beauty product, what’s the first thing you do? Swatch, use it, drool over it?

Temptalia's Answer.

Figure out where it falls in my blogging timeline, put it in the right box, but after that point, I photograph everything first before swatching or using!

Thanks to Dolce Aria for this question!
