Update on Dazzlelash: This formula just isn’t working out for me!  Some days it flakes, some days it smudges, and then other days it lasts all day.  I just can’t deal with a mascara that’s as finicky as I am!  What Dazzlelash excels at is lengthening lashes and separating them.  You’ll find it harder to clump up as you apply multiple coats with this formula.  It has a nice richness in its black color, too.  I don’t feel it thickens much (if at all), which is a drawback for me as I need thickening for my stubby, wispy lashes.  I found this was more likely to smudge/flake when I used it with Prep + Prime Lash than without it.  It removes easily (no stubborness), and if you’re in the market for separation and length, you ought to check this out if you can.  This seems like a mascara that people either love or just find so-so, but I haven’t heard from too many who outright dislike it.  Plushlash still holds as my go-to mascara (along with Lancome Oscillation and Chanel Exceptionnel) for the time being.

Temptalia Asks You


Do you have a signature scent? Is there just that one perfume you wear often enough?

Philosophy’s Red Velvet Cake Lip Shine ($12.00) is one of Philosophy’s flavors for the holiday season. It smells very chocolaty, but almost like a spicy chocolate (though not too spicy!). It gives a smidgen of color (it deepens your natural pigmentation), lots of gloss (duh), and it’s a great way to keep your pucker look kissable without sticky gloss or rich lipstick. I find that the lip shines just work really well when I have down time or I’m just running errands. I mean, you just can’t kiss your boyfriend with lipstick and lipglass on–for one, mine doesn’t want all that on his lips; and second, it’ll still mess up my perfect color combination anyway!

Anyone with some brand new lip shines hanging around who doesn’t want them?  Let me take them off your hands! ;)

Philosophy’s Under the Mistletoe Trio ($28.00) consists of three delicious lip shines. You get Gingerbread, Spicy Pear Cobbler, and Orange Cranberry Spritzer–and all three smell exactly like their names. Don’t let Spicy Pear intimidate you, because it doesn’t actually make your lips look green! It gives them a lovely high shine finish with a touch of golden-green tint that doesn’t look unnatural. Think MAC’s Spring Bean lipglass in terms of actual application. Lip shines are ridiculously glossy; they definitely give your lips a high shine finish. This little trio makes a perfect stocking stuffer, too ;)
