Yes to Carrots Frosty Loves C Holiday Set contains three of Yes to Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butters in Mint, Carrot, and Berry. There are two other flavors (not included), which are Citrus and Melon. I couldn’t actually find a retailer online which sold the holiday trio, but each of the lip butters retails for $3.69 at major drugstores/retailers (drugstore.com, Target, Walgreens, etc.). If you can snatch a few up on sale, even better! My favorite flavors are Berry, Carrot, and Citrus–Citrus probably being my numero uno (I adore lemony-scented products).

I love these tubes of lip moisturizing delight because they’re–duh–incredibly moisturizing, but they smell delicious. I also feel like I don’t have to reapply all the time, because my lips stay soft for quite awhile. As far as natural and organic products go, I’m pleased to be able to tell you that this product is certified as USDA organic. The brand doesn’t practice animal testing, nor do they use parabens, petroleums, or phthalates.

To Impersonate a Mermaid by using Freshwater with aquas and crystalline blues to evoke images of the ocean and siren calls.

Go Bold With No Regrets in a sinfully rich and dark smoky eye that’s all blue and nothing but. Shamelessly smothered in the hues of blue and navy blue for a night out!

Lightly In the Crease to help add just a *touch* of dimension and color.

Make a Smoky Eye Pop by turning gray to a gray-toned-blue. It’s an eye look without a lot of color, but it isn’t so monochromatic either.

With Teals because it goes so perfectly with them. Yep, blue with teal–obviously not for those afraid to wear some color!

To Create Jewel Tones with its richness in that perfect medium blue that’s dark and yet not overwhelmingly so. Pair it with greens and teals and aquas.

Temptalia Asks You


What is your favorite makeup style? On you? On others? (Like bold, smoky, natural, etc.)

I got a chance to get an early sneak peek at some of YSL’s Spring 2009 treats comin’ at us this February! :) I played with Palette d’Artiste for the Complexion ($62.00), Gloss Pur #4 (Pure Raspberry), Rouge Pur #146 (Romantic Pink), and Nail Touch #5 (Tender Pink Touch).

I’m really lovin’ the Gloss Pur formula–it’s creamy, pigmented, and not sticky at all. I love me a good pigmented gloss! I’m not positive whether all of the Gloss Purs have no shimmer, but it’s nice to see a gloss that’s just gloss and shine without the shimmer. The creaminess of the lipstick is lovely, and the shade is a more wearable shade of bubblegum pink.

The Nail Touch #5 is an interesting product, as it was my first time trying out a nail polish pen. I liked the experience, and it makes for a great on-the-go nail polish. This shade in particular is incredibly sheer, coming out mostly as a sheer pink–nice for the office or for those looking for something super subtle.

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the rest of this collection when it launches this spring!
