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!

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

Overall, MAC Sugarsweet Collection brings back shadesticks and some old favorites, but I don’t feel it has created any new favorites. The shadesticks are creamier this go-round, and they do feel a little softer. While I have always appreciated the original shadesticks for their color pay off, I just never loved the feel of them on my eye lid, so I had to pass them along to friends. I am looking forward to trying out the newer, creamier versions!The packaging on the shadesticks is nicer, too — almost a slick, shiny plastic casing.

What did you think of MAC’s Sugarsweet collection? What are you loving/hating? Tell me in the comments!

Neither the lipsticks or the tricolour lipglasses really grabbed my beauty-strings–there are a few that caught my eye, but nothing that caused my heart to speed up, you know? I am personally not a fan of sheer glosses, which is why the tricolour lipglasses aren’t up my alley either. The eyeshadows are so-so; they all have decent color pay off and texture, but none of limited colors screamed “must have!” I do think the finish of the mineralize skinfinishes is improved over the last few that have come out; there doesn’t seem to be any large, chunky shimmer–much more refined and subtle so it gives you a gentle sheen over a wallop of shimmer.

Temptalia Asks You

What was the last beauty product you bought but didn’t like? Why didn’t it work out for you?

Temptalia's Answer.

It was probably a Chanel glossimer – Wild Rose, I think – which just didn’t go on as pigmented as I had envisioned. I really should learn to try things on my lips in-store!
