Five Products That Changed My Beauty World

MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator>> This review was recently posted, so it seems redundant to espouse its merits yet again, but I can’t help it. By far one of my favorite products I’ve purchased this year.

MAC Mineralize Blush>> These blushes are subtle, natural, and all of them make your skin look glowy. Some of my favorites are Dainty and Nuance, both are less intense than some of the deeper ones, like Merrily. These blushes work incredibly will with denser blush/powder brushes (I use the 129 and love it!), and I like how you can build the color intensity up to your desired level. I don’t have a super dark skin tone, but I’m not light by any means, and all of the blushes show up on me.

Clean & Clear’s In Shower Facial>> Need a budget exfoliator? Try this one. It is amazing, and your skin will feel so soft immediately after. It’s quick, easy, and affordable. What else do you need to hear?

Olay Quench Mousse>> My legs don’t scare away children anymore! Instead of scaly, dry legs, I can have smooth and supple ones. Quench hydrates amazingly well, and the moisturization lasts all day. I’m terrible and inconsistent about moisturizing my legs, so Quench’s lasting power is essential for me.

Kanebo Concealer>> My undereye bags can’t thank me enough. I love Kanebo’s Concealer, which comes in a clickable brush pen. They actually recently revamped the concealer brush, and I’m eager to try it to see how it compares with the original formulation.

Temptalia Asks You


What is your biggest skin concern? Acne? Crow’s feet? Frown lines? Evenness?

The “star product” for Lancome’s Maharani Jewels collection for fall (already out) is their Poudre Elephant Teint, which is meant to be used as a bronzer. When I swatched it, it went on as a very peachy kind of color with lots of gold sheen and a few gold flecks. I imagine the peachiness is what I got from the elephant’s body, which is an orangey color. I have yet to try this on my face in an actual look, but it is gorgeous when swatched. At $36, this limited edition compact is actually attainable. Many of the star products with such prettythings imprinted and emblazoned tend to be upwards of $50, but Lancome did it right this time! I’m really loving the way it swatches, so I’m hoping it’ll work nicely on my cheeks. I see myself using it to create glowy cheeks rather than as a bronzer. I feel like the shimmer is a bit much for a bronzer (I prefer mine semi-matte or matte).

Have you tried this? Are you interested in it?
