Tag: Your Recent Beauty Adventures

I want to hear all about the beauty products you’ve recently purchased and worn. Tags are kind of like glorified surveys, but they’re fun ways to pass the time and learn a little more about each other :)

Feel free to tag your friends or other beauty bloggers if you want to see theirs, too! :)

Here’s mine…

  • Last Mascara you bought: Chanel Exceptionnel (repurchase!)
  • Last Lipstick you wore: MAC Beachbound
  • Last Look you wore that you LOVED!: A coral & bronze look (details here)
  • Last Eyeshadow you fell in love with: MAC Sweet & Punchy — I LOVE the texture. It’s so amazing.
  • Last Blush you wore: MAC Get-Away Bronze; I like it, but it can be hard to get to look just right in photos so it doesn’t just look dirty.
  • Last time you washed your brushes: Last night!  Any time I do a bolder/more colorful look, I wash my brushes right away so there is no staining to deal with!
  • Last nail polish you removed: China Glaze For Audrey — gotta put it on my toes again soon!

Haul: Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams x5, Kiehl’s UV 50 (the new one), MAC Marine Life

Excited for: No school on Monday!  Which mostly just gives me extra time to prepare for the last week of the quarter & get ready for finals.

Friday plans: I’m actually kind of a homebody.  I think it’s because I’m pretty busy during the week, and my weekends do slow down a bit, so I like to spend time with my family (the boyfriend and Mellanhead) or visiting my parents.  I think we may go out for either lunch or dinner and then settle in for some DVR!

This week’s Mellan photo… Continue reading “Free for Haul Friday, Volume #030″

Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care 2 in 1 Review & Photos

Head & Shoulders

Shaun enjoys long walks on the beach, vegging out on the couch watching chick flicks, and cuddling with Mellan. Or maybe not! He handles all the behind-the-scenes action here at Temptalia, from tech support to server woes to being my shoulder to cry on.

After reading all of your comments I got such a big head that I started strutting around the house like a Pharoah. I commanded Mellan to get me my royal slippers, but he just stared at me for a minute then whined for me to take him for a walk. Christine’s gone from withholding food to Corporal Punishment for this review, so let’s get this going before she figures out that I used up all her ExfoliKate and replaced it with anchovy paste.

I’m a simple man… Simple tastes.. Simple… In the brain.. Simple! And I like me some Head and Shoulders Shampoo ($7.99)!  What’s wrong with that?! I imagine the people at Head and Shoulders are Witches and Warlocks who sit over a boiling brew stirring their magical elixir and having forest animals bottle it. It’s magic! My head itches like crazy if I don’t use whatever is in the Head and Shoulders Dry Scalp bottle and I’m pretty sure whatever is in it has ruined my head and hair for life. I’m bound to them!

It had to happen–the unfortunate day when I ran out of my much loved Head and Shoulders Bottle, and I was required to buy a new bottle. Christine said she had plenty of shampoos for me to try! So I did whatever any man would do when faced with change: I ran out to the store to buy another bottle of Head and Shoulders! I got to the supermarket and found it. EIGHT DOLLARS FOR A SMALL BOTTLE?!?! Those Witches and Warlocks must have hit hard times, because they must be out of their mind if they think I’m spending that kind of scratch on shampoo!
