Did you know: Temptalia’s Weekly Sales & Deals

Every week, we round-up upcoming sales, free shipping offers, and coupon codes for our favorite beauty brands and post them in our deals’ section. You can always access it by checking the sidebar, which has several of our features listed, to visit whenever you want.  We post weekly deal round-ups on Friday, as well as any upcoming (and applicable) HauteLook/Gilt sales on Mondays.

NARS has an offer for Temptalia readers! Get a free Mini Lipgloss Duo in Sweet Dreams/Dolce Vita with code TEMPTALIAC, expires 10/15.  (Use the code during check out, and check your cart — NARS always says “invalid” or “error,” but the free item still appears in the cart–I checked it a few times myself!)  While supplies last — last time we had a NARS gift code, we ran through their supply pretty quickly!

PHILOSOPHY is doing Dazzling Deals week with a different deal for each day (valid only for that day).  Today’s deal is buy one, get one 50% off on select skincare items.

STILA FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE kicked off this morning. Save 20% off with code FRIEND2010, shipping is free over $50. One use per person, expires 9/29 at midnight PST.

Challenge: Felines — Phuong K, Mariah, Alicia, Resha, Kali

Here are the final five looks from this month’s challenge!  It’s been a really fun ride to see all of the different looks inspired by felines.  Big thanks to everyone who took the time to participate–it wouldn’t have been as awesome without you!  I won’t make an official announcement until mid-October, but October’s challenge will be Halloween-related.  Again, more on that challenge in a couple of weeks.

Check their looks out!

Illamasqua Viridian Nail Varnish

Illamasqua Viridian Nail Varnish

Illamasqua Viridian Nail Varnish (£13.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is a darkened teal base with lighter teal micro-shimmer; the teal leans towards the blue side, making it a cooler-toned teal. Funny enough, when the flash fired, it pulled out more of the green in the teal, but overall, it still pulls bluer-teal.

The formula and application was just like Scarab: smooth, even, intensely pigmented–one coat would likely be enough, though I did two in the swatches.

Viridian is also new for fall, but it looks to be permanent from what I can tell.
