Temptalia Asks You


Do you have a special occasion lip? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerChanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque is my “power red,” so I often wear it for important events (assuming that a red lip would work) as well as for special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, etc.

    Guerlain Garconne :) It’s so gorgeous, but it’s totally not an every day lip. I wear that one for weddings, parties, etc.

    Mac – Gimme That! or the closest dupe Estee Lauder sequin lip gloss in Violet Rain. They’re just so sparkly and bright. so lovely. I adore them so much I limit my wear to only the most special times.

  3. Not really as I usually take into consideration what I am wearing so it varies. Right now I’m hooked on trying a few new lip colours where I have not ventured before.

  4. MAC’s New York Apple is my favorite for special occasions. It just makes me feel invigorated when I put it on.

    I really only wear lip balm on a daily basis, so any lipstick is a special occasion lip; what I wear really depends on my mood, as well as the rest of my makeup.

    Mine is Tom Ford Cherry Lush and Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque which I wore to my wedding. Christine i heard that Chanel has recently discontinued the rouge allure laque :( do you have a dupe recommendation?

    I wish I did. I loooove Chanel Dragon, but whenever I put it on I get so self concious and end up taking it off. I really want a statement lip, but I feel more comfortable with statement eyes

    Hi Christine,

    I have a question for you. I got the Chanel Rouge Allure Laque after reading so much about it on your blog, and it is beautiful, but it feathers around my lips. I tried wearing Too Faced Lip insurance primer under it and it still feathers after a few hours.
    Do you have any tips? I don’t want to give up on it, please help!

    By the way, my boyfriend hates this lipstick! I won’t let him near my lips while I’m wearing it!

      I’m not Christine but I started getting a problem with feathering with deeply colored lipsticks once I hit 35 or so. My secret (which I read about on the wed somewhere) is to line the outside of the lip line with a clear lipliner; this keeps the lipstick color from migrating out via the fine lines. Works great for me, I can wear any lipstick now.

        Thanks, Lee! That’s a great tip, it’s just a shame that I’ll have to go and spend even more money on yet another product so I can weat this lipstick. Thanks again!

    I always wear MAC Viva Glam Cyndi when I wear my Dirndl! :-) It’s exactly the same color!

  10. Not really. I usually don’t wear anything on my lips at all (except for lip balm), so lip gloss is already a lot for me ;-)

  11. Kat Von D Adora for sure. The metallic/shimmer finish is special in general.

    I generally look better in deep pinks than reds and Show Orchid is one of my favorite special occasion lipsticks.

    I’m with you on Dragon. But if I want something brighter I opt for Guerlain Rouge G in Garconne

    Guerlain Rouge G Garconne , Guerlain Rouge Automatique Liu, Tom Ford Cherry Lush, MAC Driven by Love Pro Longwear lipglass ,MAC Ruby Woo

    Not really. I tend to pick my makeup colors to coordinate with my attire. Also I own so many lip products, specifically glosses which are my weakness, that I try to rotate my shades so that all my babies get some attention. :-)
