What brand do you think has changed the most over the years? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerTough question! Urban Decay, perhaps, because of their massive and enduring venture into all things neutral, given their history of bolder, edgier color. MAC has seemed to rely more heavily on collaborations over the last few years than ever before (though they have done collaborations for quite sometime). NARS seems more aggressive as a brand with more launches than they used to have, plus collaborations.

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about ULTA!

my answer: I think it’s cool that you can get your drgustore and mid-to-high-end favorites in the same spot. I’ve only been to ULTA two or three times in person, so I have primarily experienced the retailer online. They’ve had some atrocious shipping in the past with a record-breaking number of shattered items arriving upon arrival for me compared to any other online retailer, which has been a sore point for me. I love their rewards system, and I think it’s easy to use and good for the customer. Their website needs a major overhaul, and their processing and shipping speeds are the slowest for a major retailer.

Do you prefer your products (makeup or skincare) scented or unscented? Why? What are your favorite (and least favorite) scents?

Temptalia's AnswerI prefer unscented for most products, though I would rather some tolerable scent than a lingering scent as well. For lip products, I like subtle vanilla or unscented. For skincare, I don’t like anything heavily fragranced or perfume-y.

Do you think that skincare brand’s claims are usually honest? Or is it mostly exaggerated for marketing? Are some brands more honest than others?

Temptalia's AnswerI think certain types of products often exaggerate claims or must have had a very small sample size and miraculous results… When brands make more moderate claims (“intensely hydrating” vs. “rewind the clock by 10 years in just six weeks!”), they seem fairly honest and believable to me.
