Philosophy First Snow Set ($26.00) is a three-piece set featuring Snow Shower exfoliating shower gel (4 oz.), Snow Body Shimmer Lotion (2 oz.), and Snow Kiss Lip Shine (0.5 oz). The Snow Shower is a glittery gel that exfoliates and sloughs off rough skin without being rough. I’d consider it a gentle body exfoliator. The Snow Body Shimmer Lotion is adorable; it’s such a fun product to use when you want to pamper yourself. The shimmer went on subtly, which is great, because while I love some body shimmer, I don’t want a glittery hot mess either! I love, love, LOVE Philosophy’s Lip Shines (you know how some people obsess over Juicy Tubes? Lip Shines for me!). It’s not surprising that Snow Kiss is a nice low key choice. It’s a sheer, shimmery gloss with blue-toned glimmer. It’s kind of like frost/ice in a sense.  There’s a scent/flavor to it; I’m not exactly sure what it is… reminds me almost of raspberry lemonade.

“Hello possums!” Dame Edna Everage is in the house! With her zesty zingers, cutting-edge appearance – lilac hair (which is completely natural), rhinestone-encrusten face furniture, fanciful frocks – frankly; there’s nothing like a Dame!

Dame Edna is the resident muse for our spectacular post-holiday makeup collection, and modestly describes herseld as “probably the most popular and gifted woman in the world today: housewife, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, talk-show host, swami, children’s book illustrator, spin doctor, megastar, and icon.”

With packaging as mirthful and minx-like as the Legend herself, the Dame collection of heavy-on-the-lilac lipstick/lipglass, eye Shadow, highlight powder and nail lacquers is in a class by itself!

Follow my beauty regime possums, and you’ll never be cosmetically challenged – Dame Edna

You can get the collection details in our previous post!

Temptalia Asks You


Is it possible to pull off bold eyes AND bold lips simultaneously? What works? What doesn’t?

Take the Day Off Makeup Removericon ($16.50) is a classic choice for a good makeup remover. It’s excellent for removing stubborn bits of makeup around the eyes and lips. There is also a cleansing milk and cleansing balm version of the same formula.

Moisture Surgeicon ($34.00) feels like a water-based moisturizer; it’s like a gel rather than a cream. It’s very good at moisturizing skin and keeping it moisturized throughout the day. It’s one of their more recent products, but it’s definitely worthy of representing the brand.

Almost Powder Makeup SPF15icon ($22.50) is one of my favorite powder foundations. This is something you can easily keep in your purse for touch-ups to existing foundation (because the powder itself is incredibly finely milled and lightweight) or to put on before going out.

All Over Colouricon ($29.50) is a gorgeous compact, both in the color range, effect, and the appearance. What I like about these compacts as they’re affordable, despite having the cute flower emblazoned into the product. I love the way these work as blushes and subtle highlighters simultaneously.
