Temptalia Asks You


How do you organize your makeup palettes? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI have a couple of palettes that tend to be go-tos for traveling, which I keep in a drawer with my basics and core products, and the rest I keep in larger pull-out drawers. I have one drawer just for Urban Decay palettes, and then one drawer for most other brands!

Temptalia Asks You


How do you organize your lip products? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI organize by brand, then by formula. As much as I’d love to organize by color, I tend to think of brand, then name more readily.

What tips do you have for someone on a no- or low-buy? Share! (A no- or low-buy is when someone is actively not purchasing or minimizing purchases for a specific time period, often with certain rules like they can repurchase foundation if they finish, etc.)

Temptalia's AnswerI work best with incentives, so I would try to think about how to reward myself for sticking with it at the end. I also think keeping a spreadsheet of what you own can help you keep track of what you’re using, what you have, and give you a better sense of how much you have and why you felt the need to go on a no- or low-buy!
