4 More Makeup Looks Using MAC Deep Truth Eyeshadow

Pump up silvery smoky eyes by layering Deep Truth’s deep blue over grays and silvers.

Create a jewel-toned effect by pairing it with rich greens, teals, and just a touch of purple.

Darken any crease just by swishing a little Deep Truth in the outermost portion of the crease.

Smoke up that lash line by dabbing your 219 brush into Deep Truth and applying it to the outer portion of your lower lash line.

Chanel’s Cote d’Azur Summer Collection definitely stirred up some beauty temptations when we first learned about it. I ended up with most of the collection, and you’ll definitely get a full review soon :) I thought I’d break it up a bit, so you can at least get a sneak peek for now! My Nordstrom did have the summer collection on counter already, so I bet yours does, too — if you and Chanel are likethis, get your bum over to your local beauty counter!

Pictured above is the Iridescent Effects Eyes in Plein Soleil ($56.00), and it is an eyeshadow quad. It features four bronzy colors, ranging from coppery bronze to peach-bronze to medium bronze to deep, dark bronze. In-store, it swatched a little sketchy, but I was thinking that it might have just been because of the oil and gunk build-up from other customers swatching. However, the swatches included in this post are from the one I purchased, so it’s fresh and clean, and yet the colors didn’t quite swatch as smoothly as I would expect of Chanel. I’m definitely going to have to do a look or two with the quad to determine whether it will earn a spot in my beauty stash for keeps!

The next item I’d like to let you in on is Aqualumiere Gloss in Candy Glow ($27.00), which is part of Chanel’s normal Aqualumiere Gloss line-up, but it is repromoted with this launch. I’m not a huge glossimer fan (though I’m slowly warming up to them), but I adore the Aqualumiere Gloss formula. Talk about thick, non-sticky, pigmented goodness. Candy Glow is a pinky-coral with gold shimmer gloss that is so up my alley! I have the other three that came out with the launch, and they are equally as lovely, but I will tell you more next time :)

See swatches + Candy Glow… Continue reading →

Temptalia Asks You

Do people ever tell you that you have/buy too much makeup? What do you tell them in response?

Temptalia's Answer.

Oh, yeah — all the time! I usually tell them it’s my passion/hobby, so I am entitled to collect and enjoy it all :) Most of us have hobbies, and we often spend money there; same here!
