This May, Lancôme is proud to launch Brazilian Earth Colors by Daria Werbowy.  Created by Lancôme spokesmodel Daria Werbowy, these three products include a lipstick, lip gloss and eyeshadow quartet. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Centro Espacial Vik Muniz, a group that supports arts education programs for young adults in Rio de Janeiro.

The project came about after Daria visited one of the Centro Espacial programs as part of a trip to Brazil. She toured the facilities and was treated to a special performance by the young adults who study a variety of specialties there. Moved by what she saw, she approached the Lancôme team about creating products that could be sold to benefit Centro Espacial. The team enthusiastically agreed and Daria quickly visited the labs outside of Paris to learn about mixing makeup. The product development and research teams showed her how to blend colors and choose textures and ingredients. A fan of neutral shades, Daria decided upon beautiful nudes that call to mind some of the earth tones she saw in Brazil.

Brazilian Earth Colors by Daria Werbowy will launch this May around the world. In the United States, it will be available exclusively at Sephora, the Lancôme boutiques and www.lancome-usa.com.

The Daria Collection includes the following new products: Color Fever Lipstick in Beige Caracai, $26.00, Color Fever Gloss in Nude Prainha, $24.00, Color Design Eye Shadow Quad in Carnet de Velours, $45.00

Before Swimming / After Swimming

Waterproof Your Makeup: The Temptalia Experiment

It’s nearly summer, and temperatures are heating up everywhere. It’s becoming time to shed those pants, pop on a swimsuit, and head out to the pool/lake/beach. Or maybe it’s time to sweat a whole lot while doing something outdoor-sy. And if you live in Florida, maybe just going from your house to your mailbox. (Ha!) So, here at Temptalia, I tried to think of how would I make my makeup withstand moderate amounts of water and summer-related-abuse.

So what’s the verdict? Continue reading →

Temptalia Asks You


What product should you not be allowed to buy anymore? Is it pink lipstick because you already have 100? Is it red lipstick because you never wear it? Green eyeshadow because you have two palettes full of them?

Olay is one of those brands that everybody has heard of, but you may or may not have tried. It has been around for so many years, you may have tried it eons ago, disliked it, and written it off (or loved it and have forgotten about it!)–but now is the time to head to your nearest drugstore to peruse Olay’s Definity line.

Definity is Olay’s line for “highly defined anti-aging” products. In just eight weeks, consumers should see a difference in their skin when using Olay Definity products–from brown sputs, dullness, unevenness, and wrinkles. These days, so many products tout scientific breakthroughts, miracle ingredients, and jaw-dropping pricetags. It’s hard to keep up, and I have always found that Olay makes it easy to figure out the right skincare regimen for you. For Definity, Olay is emphasizing its usage of the Glucosamine Complex, which is meant to help your skin retain moisture better, increase the regeneration of collagen, smooth lines and wrinkles, and increase your skin’s luminosity.

What products are in the Definity range? Continue reading →
