Temptalia Asks You

What hair styling tools do you use on a regular basis? Share!

Temptalia's Answer.

None on a regular basis, actually! The closest to regular would be a hair dryer.

Make Up For Ever #159 Eyeshadow

More blues?! Indeed!

  • #159 is a deep shade of cobalt blue. It’s almost like a blue meshed with violet. It’s absolutely stunning, and I’d consider it a must-have if you ever have an inkling to venture into blue (or you’re already in love). It’s extremely pigmented, smooth to the touch, and goes like a dream.
  • #167 is a shimmery, water-blue. It’s soft, pigmented, and has a nice sheen. It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Freshwater eyeshadow, actually.
  • #72 is a matte, bright medium blue. Sephora describes it as a turquoise, but I definitely don’t think there’s much turquoise, if *any* in it. It reminded me a lot of MAC’s Electric Eel eyeshadow, but not as bright–a little more toned down.
  • #118 is a light, sky blue. It’s really almost like a robin’s egg blue, actually. It has a matte finish, and it feels smooth and buttery. I’ve always been on the hunt for a good matte sky blue like this one.
  • #150 is a soft, pearly light blue with just a touch of silver sheen to it. It’s like a bluer version of MAC’s Surreal eyeshadow — and a lot less frosty. This is one of the better textures and pay off I’ve had with the brand’s shimmery shadows.

Which of these are your favorites?

:) I’ve heard it is available in some stores locally, and you can always see if you can find a store nearby to pick-up at (order online, pick-up in store, y’know!), but nothing showed up in my area unfortunately.

Beauty Basics: MAC Face Brushes

Beauty Basics is a series covering basic products and tools that help to make applying your makeup easier. To view the entire series to date, be sure to visit the beauty basics, or you can view posts within the series about MAC Face Brushes.

Focus On: MAC 189 Face Brush

MAC 189 Face Brush ($40.00) is a flat, paddle-shaped brush with rounded edges. It is made out of synthetic fibres, which makes it good for both powder and more emollient products. This was originally launched with Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, and I will say I do like it with it. I really like this brush for applying pressed powders to the face, and I also like it when applying creamy products like a moisturizer or a cream blush as more of a highlighter or if I want more precision. Typically, though, I use it mostly for pressed powders. It’s a very soft, dense brush. It feels heavier than some of MAC’s other face brushes, and it feels fairly firm. There’s definitely no fluffiness to it, but the softness makes for easy blending as necessary.

How do you like to use this brush?
