The Best of the Best, Volume #001

Ahh, thank goodness it’s Friday! It’s been a super busy week for me as my boyfriend’s been sick for the past four or five days, so I’ve been playing nursemaid for him. Plus, Magellan decided it was a good time to limp around the house, too, so I’ve been tending to him this past week as well. (For the record, the boyfriend is–hopefully–on the mend, and Magellan’s limp is less noticeable now.)  Boy, I am so ready for the week to end–bring on the weekend!  I’m hoping my weekend involves plenty o’ sleep and R&R, what about you?

With new dazzleglasses and brand-new product greasepaints, many of you are eager for this collection to launch. Not to mention? Temptalia readers are totally going to sell out Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. Let’s do it! (Just let me buy my ten backups, k?)
  • Bobbi Brown Chrome Collection is the much anticipated holiday collection. It seemed like the overall feeling was positive, most of you liking the splash of color Bobbi added to her holiday palette. I’m curious about that silvery lipstick myself!
  • MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection: All About the Eyeshadows seemed to be popular amongst readers this week, coming in fifth place. It must be all those bright shades, yeah?

Temptalia Asks You

Do you keep yourself on a beauty budget? Do you limit yourself? Do you stay within your budget? Or do you not want to keep track?

Temptalia's Answer.

I have a rough estimate of what I can/can’t afford beauty-wise per month, so I stick within those limits :)

Temptalia Asks You

Where do you purchase your beauty products the most? Department stores (e.g. Nordstrom, Macys), specialty stores (e.g. Sephora), online, or brand-specific (e.g. Kiehl’s, MAC)?

Temptalia's Answer.

Nordstrom or brand-specific, usually!
