I agree that there should have been some eye catching packaging…just to make these mostly generic looking products more enticing. I like the blushes and one or two of the eyeshadows, but the lip colors would […]

I really can’t begin to list all the things I have learned from readers’ comments. It has been a wonderful adjunct to Temptalia’s reviews. Exploring non-department store brands of make up has probably been the […]

Patricia commented on the post, Have you ever attended a beauty event? 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Aside from counter events, the only one I have been to is IMATS. I went to the 2013 event in Pasadena.
