Temptalia Asks You


What’s your favorite way to wear your hair? Up? Down? Flat ironed or natural?

Tawaka “The Ball” ($65.00) is a totally, unapologetically indulgent gift. Whether you’re receiving or giving, it truly is a luxe item to keep near your shower. Those wary of the price will at least be happy to know that The Ball lasts for ages. I’ve had mine for months, and it still has plenty to go. It’s a great product for buffing and mildly exfoliating the body!

Calvin Klein Delicious Light Glistening Lip Gloss ($16.00) is my new favorite lipgloss. Oh, I’ll always have a spot in my heart for MAC lipglass, but Calvin Klein’s lipgloss is ridiculously pigmented, so smooth, and wearable on its own or paired with a lipstick. I just bought three more earlier this week! It is a non-sticky, fragrance free gloss — I know those are selling points for some of you!

T3 Bespoke Labs Featherweight Dryer ($200.00) is a standout dryer. Talk about taking my hair drying time from thirty minutes to mere a five to seven minutes. Hello, time savings? So worth $200. It also helps that it is extremely lightweight!

Make Up For Ever Dany Sanz Limited Edition Palette ($390.00) is for the beauty addict who already has everything. This limited edition palette contains twenty eyeshadows/blushes and ten diamond shadows. Only 100 of these babies are available!

Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets ($5.29) is a gift most people can appreciate. Who wants an oily face? Exactly. These are excellent stocking stuffers or great to add to a lil’ gift basket you’ve put together for your favorite teenager.

H20 Anti-Acne Clarifying Mask ($25.00) is an excellent mask designed to help clean out your pores, remove excess oil, and help minimize the appearance of acne-related blemishes. My skin always feels so smooth and clean after using this!

LUSH Mmm Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt ($7.95) is totally cute and girly–which means I love it. Deliciously scented sweetness that dissolves as you relax in a hot bath.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Starter Kit ($32.50) is a great way for teenagers and young kids to learn how to start taking care of their skin. Three easy steps and all the products you need to do them with.

AG Hair Cosmetics dv8 texture spray ($20.00) is a spray designed to define, texturize, and style hair without giving you build-up at the end. I like to spray it on damp to dry hair to help add texture and make my hair look more “piece-y.” What’s great about this product is you can spray it into your roots, blow dry, and then you’ll see some nice volume and definition. You can also just use it to keep your hair a little more “in place.”

Trust me, I’m lazy in the morning. I’m even lazier because I spend most of my day blogging in my home or going to school, so there’s just few occasions where I need to get dressed to the nines. I’ve grown accustomed to lazing around, playing with the puppy, and the like, so any product that can multi-task I get excited over. This is why dv8 is so exciting, because it’s very much like a pomade, but it’s in a spray formula. It can do so much in so little time, and you don’t have to get pomade all over your hands either.

Use this to help cut back the time you spent getting ready in the New Year — it launches in North America January 1st, 2009.

Here’s your chance to get a larger glimpse of the MAC & Hello Kitty collaboration that hits stores next February.  I think the engraved Hello Kitty into the lipsticks is a nice touch.  The colors themselves don’t quite excite me… we’ll have to see how everything swatches.  Am I the only one who preferred the regular quads with the clear lids over the new trio/quartet packaging (as seen in Heatherette and the upcoming Dame Edna, and now HK)?
