On her inspiration, Bobbi Brown says, “I love nude makeup – and it’s especially sexy when it’s saturated with glimmering, light-reflective flecks.”

Shimmering Nudes Palette ($50.00)
A perfect mix of seven cool and warm nude tones, the Shimmering Nudes Palette flatters all complexions and has everything you need to create mBobbi’s look of the season. A combination of flat,
sheer shimmer and high shimmer shades softly illuminate the eyes while a dark matte liner shade adds drama.

If you, like me, always enjoy about discovering a new beauty line, then I have some news for you! Jouer Cosmetics has re-launched itself exclusively at Henri Bendels this August. It is an “innovative collection of custom luxury cosmetics.” (No doubt about that, since it’s a Henri Bendels exclusive, can’t imagine it not being luxury!) They are touting the Luminizing Moisture Tint SPF 20 as their star product, along with their Age-Repairing Brightener and Concealer. Jouer does niclude a full line of color pieces as well (lipsticks, shadows, etc.). Apparently, Jouer first launched in 2004, but this is the first time I’ve heard about it.

Check the line out at www.jouercosmetics.com.

Temptalia Asks You


What look are you wearing today? What makeup are you sporting? Is it a no-makeup day? Full out face?

OMG, I was hit by a nasty, nasty bug on Sunday afternoon. I probably caught it on the plane, but who knows. All I know is that it sucks something awful, and I really wish it would go away. I feel miserable, incredibly groggy and sleepy all-freaking-day-long, and whiny! I think my boyfriend is on the verge of going insane. A sick Christine is NOT good for anybody. I did this look on Monday, but I completely dozed off, though I totally meant to post it earlier. I swear!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (creamy neutral base), Dreammaker eyeshadow (white-gold), Sharp eyeshadow (chartreuse), Cool Heat eyeshadow (blue-teal), Graphblack technakohl (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Suncentered Colour Forms powder (peach)
  • Lips: Soft Lust lipstick (frosty champagne), Rich & Ripe lipglass (red-coral)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Dreammaker = Nylon; Sharp = Sour Lemon; Cool Heat = Electric Eel; Suncentered = Peachykeen; Soft Lust = High Tea; Rich & Ready = Lust

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Dreammaker eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Sharp to the middle of the lid, then overlay the outer lid with Cool Heat eyeshadow. Drag Cool Heat eyeshadow into crease using the 239. Sweep Dreammaker underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Suncentered using the 129. Apply Soft Lust lipstick to lips, and then top with Rich & Ripe lipglass for color and shine.

Here at Temptalia, we are all about making YOU happy! We strive to listen to your ideas and suggestions on what to keep doing, what we need to work on, and what just isn’t working at all. At the end of last year, we unveiled the current blog design, which was a complete overhaul of the previous layout. A redesign does not come easy – there are tears, fights, devestating arguments, and episodes of the silent treatment between the team – which is why we start early!

This year, we want to approach our redesign process with you in mind! Please help us find out what you love, hate, and can’t wait to see changed from the layout. For those of you who don’t like change, we make no promise that the layout will change dramatically nor do we make any promises that it will stay the same. We’re waiting to hear what you lovely readers want to see!

So please, take this easy and quick survey! Thank you! Continue reading →
