I think we might (might!) know the two favorite brands of Temptalia readers.
Maybe.

Foundation (I use a MAC BB with primer in it that’s $30, so not much of a splurge, but it’s only 1 fl oz so it has to be repurchased more often), highlighter, and eyeliner.

I’m 50/50 on whether luxe brushes are […]

MAC Hush eyeshadow, which was discontinued (boo), so I won’t be repurchasing. It’s not 100% done — the “hit pan” section is tiny — but I don’t want to use it all up.

I love how it can really bring a facial look together, but good God I hate shimmer bronzers, sparkly bronzers, anything-that-is-not-matte bronzers. I also wish there was a bit more variety in undertone — like you […]

I am forever wishing I got this instead of the Naked palettes, which are nice, but good god I do not need 18 sparkly shades.

I lost an eyeliner — one of the mini Benefit BADgal liners they were selling last year. I actually saw where it fell, it just fell into the space behind my bed where there’s piles of various assorted things I […]

Urban Decay’s Naked2 palettes. The pans aren’t secured properly to the case, which is a shame, because the case is actually quite lovely and has a snap closure.

Haul: I went shopping this week, and got Benefit’s the Bronze of Champions and Sugarlicious kits, as well as some MAC Brow Set.
Weekend plans: Today I have to go to the gym, tomorrow I’m going to the zoo (our […]

My Benefit the Bronze of Champions is turning out to be a favorite, as both my Naked palettes are.

Benefit’s the Bronze of Champions face kit. It has almost everything you need for a short vacay (throw in some primer, foundation, concealer, brow stuff, and maybe another lip product).

pH pigments that work with “temperature”?

Either someone on the MAC team didn’t do a good job writing up their product description, or someone on the MAC team needs to retake chemistry.

(Or PH could be the […]

My philosophy for covering circles with concealer is always: it’s better to get them 50% covered and look natural than 80% covered and have your face caked in concealer.

If we’re also including skincare, Clinique. The only moisturizer that calms my sensitive skin is Clinique, and I generally like the quality of their products.

If we’re not including skincare, Shiseido.

I’d probably pick Stereo Alchemy’s “God of Love” album (it’s fairly obscure, but seriously it’s an amazing album). There’d probably be a true red lipstick and a nude lipstick, then super-pigmented black and brown […]

Uuuuughhhh they’re so pretty but I’m trying to buy as few products as possible that are tested on animals. Nars is going to kill me. I’m sensing their holiday stuff will kick major butt this year.

How I organize my blushes:

Step one: have blush (this is an important step)

Step two: stare at blush collection

Step three: realize you have no idea the difference between peach and pink, and can barely […]

Would you say it’s similar to MAC Quarry/Urban Decay Tease eyeshadows?

For school, I use a black Sephora bag (one of the ones free samples come in). I keep in it a mirror, makeup remover swabs, two tubes of lipstick, a copy of a poem (right now it’s Henley’s Invictus), and then I’ll […]
