Thankfully, since I live on my own, I don’t have family or siblings around to dig into my stuff. Shaun has no interest in rifling through my goods! I’m very lucky that Mellan doesn’t seem to be phased by makeup and the like. He just seems to know it’s off-limits! I usually give my friends a “tour” of Temptalia HQ, so I think that satisfies their curiosity 🙂

I’m sure they would but I don’t let ’em
*cackles evily*
But really I mean… the only other person I live with who wears makeup is my mom and she only wants things very rarely. 😛

No, thankfully! I don’t have sisters, so I’ve never had anyone rifling through my clothes or anything either. I think it would really bother me to be honest, as makeup is something that I’m quite into and spend a lot of money on.

No thankfully, I don´t have any problem with that, sometimes my friends look at my makeup out of curiosity since I´m the only one that has high end makeup, even though many of them could easily afford to buy it but just don´t, however I have created interest in a few of my friends and one of them will buy her first high end Chanel lipstick for her birthday next month…lol they are now on the dark side of makeup lol thanks to me. But no one has used my makeup on themselves they just look at the product we all think it´s gross to use other peoples makeup, and the few times they have been looking at my makeup I was present. But as a child I would get on my mothers makeup when she wasn´t home and use the lipsticks…needless to say her lipsticks looked quite um…mistreated…lol I recently confessed to her that I did that as a 5-8 year old and she was surprised, she thought that they had melted like that because of the hot weather for all this years, she never suspected me lol 😛 .

YES! My 6-year-old has become very interested in makeup over the last few months. It started with nail polish a couple of years ago, but recently, she’s been wanting to play with face products. For now, she’s happy with arm & hand swatches, but I know it’s just a matter of time before she wants to start wearing it on her face. She actually prefers HE over DS, too. At least her coloring is completely different than mine, so if something doesn’t work for me in the future, maybe I can pass it to her, LOL.

As far as my friends go, they like to look through my stash, but it’s more of a thing of curiosity, because I have so much.

Yes! Most of my friends do, and they especially like testing products to figure out if they want them or not. And of course to use for a night out.

Oh, most definitely. I lived with my mother for about a year to help her out with the mortgage, and I would constantly find that things would “mysteriously” disappear here and there and reappear a few weeks later. 😛 My sister’s also raided my collection more than a few times for parties and whatnot. Currently, my roommate is less makeup-oriented than I am and rarely asks, but I’ve told her I don’t mind her using my stuff as long as she remembers to clean/sterilize the eye products before and after usage.

I don’t let my friends share my make up, my sister and I do though. Make up is already a cesspool of my own bacteria, I don’t need there’s in it too.

My sister is always “borrowing” my Nars Danmari palette. It always gets “returned” though, so I allow it. 🙂

At home, no since it’s just me and my doggies. They stay out of my make-up/clothing closet (spare bedroom). Mum enjoys seeing what I buy … Mostly to see where an item is made. LOL!

The make-up I have at work is basically under lock and key. I’m OCD about people touching my stuff. IF someone wants to see an item (which is rare) I make them use hand sanitizer. I don’t allow my friends/co-workers to swatch or use anything.

Omg…. My sister who is also in her 30’s always wants to borrow my MAC stuff! For her bday and xmas I get her her own stuff but she always wants mine! Argh…

But she’s my little sister…. I share.

i’m a bit of a show off when it comes to my makeup collection, so when my friends are over we do get quite involved with swatching/testing colours etc. BUT having said that, i get reeeeaaalllly annoyed when I come to use my makeup the next time and everything is in the wrong place! so i’m abit contradictory like that haha

Yes, they ALL do, since I have a rather large collection and like to get new things as soon as they come out. Therefore friends and family regularly try things out before they buy them when they come to visit. I don’t really mind, though, as they only try things once and do not use them regularly. I even have disposable mascara and lipgloss wands just for situations like these.

No, but I like to get into theirs. LOL

Actually, every time I go visit my family I like to do makeup swaps with my sister. I like to get rid of things I don’t use so I can lighten my makeup bag. I hate seeing products in there that never see the light of day. My sister on the other hand never throws stuff, and she’s always willing to take my (slightly) used makeup (but not mascara!). So there’s always a good chance that I’ll find something in her bag that I can use, and in exchange I’ll give her something else that I can’t use.

My kitten, Liam, REALLY loves to chew on my makeup brushes, so I make sure to keep them out of his reach which is difficult because he loves jumping on the countertops. Actually now that I think about it, he’ll knock anything off the counter if I’m using it, so I have to keep breakable things like e/s away from him too. He’s so naughty!

BTW I would love to see what treasures are in temptalia HQ 🙂

Am I the only one who gets REALLY annoyed if someone uses my make up? My faltmates last year even used it without asking :/ which was really annoying because all their stuff was all bought in a drugstore and mine is al high end :(. I mean, if you ask me for it I won’t say no..but at least tell me..
