Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: Viseart Sultry Muse/Paris Nude palettes
  • Weekend plans: Maybe the farmers’ market, stay cool, clean the house
  • Do you read any magazines?: The only one I read on occasion is PetPlan’s subscriber magazine (dog insurance), but I was never a big magazine reader!

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! :)

This week’s Mellan photo…


An old (and favorite) photo that represents this week–he’s always underfoot!

Temptalia Asks You


How do you apply your foundation currently? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI take one pump’s worth of foundation and dab it on my forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin, and then I take a brush like Real Techniques’ Expert Face and use downward strokes to spread out the foundation and light patting motions to smooth everything into place after I’ve spread most of the product out.

The Hit List

What’s the Best Natural Makeup Brushes that you’ve tried?

Share your pick!  And don’t forget to share why :)

The very, very best are easily Chikuhodo Z-series and SUQQU brushes, but I really love Hakuhodo for “best overall” for variety, price point, style, and pricing vs. quality.

Temptalia Asks You


What’s one product everyone else dislikes that you love? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerHmm, nothing stands out as a real flop that I loved anyway, but I remember really liking the Marc Jacobs Lip Gels and know that there were certainly plenty who didn’t (hence why they reformulated, I suspect!).
