Temptalia Asks You

Do you keep track of makeup looks you’ve done? Do you make note of certain combos that worked? Write them down? Forget about it?

I used Golden Olive pigment on lid, Warm Chill eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Juxt eyeshadow on inner lid, Scarab eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid, Humid eyeshadow in outer crease, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Overgrown eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer to highlight. I wore High 90s slimshine (LE) with Sugartrance lipglass (LE) on lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Warm Chill = Juxt; Scarab = Sumptuous Olive; Femme-fi = Shroom; Overgrown = Bitter; High 90s = Skew; Sugartrance = Luminary

Thanks to Bjooti.net for these images! The site is in Swedish (it is one of my favorite sites to look at, though, ha!), so I don’t know if the text has more description.  Nonetheless, I presume that the mineral makeup is the same as or similar to the previous mineral makeup foundations that came out (the packaging is the same).   I’d like to say those are MSFs, too…  No real word on this, and it could end up being an international only launch, too (since US already launched the mineral powders!).

Temptalia Asks You

Do you plan out your hauls? Do you decide you have to get certain items, and then do you only get those items? Do you often change your mind and end up with totally different things?

Make Up For Ever HD Powder ($30.00) recently launched this past May, and it is a translucent finishing powder that is meant to work on all skin tones. It can be worn over foundation to set or alone, and it gives what MUFE calls a “soft focus” effect to the skin. It uses ultra fine, spherical micro-particles that are made up of 100% mineral silica powder. If that confuses you, just know that they reflect natural and artifical light, softening lines and imperfections on the screen and in person.

Break out your buffer brush (182, I love you), like MUFE’s Kabuki Brush ($39.00), which will be available this August, and buff this powder into your skin. A little goes a long way, so you can stretch your value as well as keep your skin feeling lightweight. I prefer using this over my foundation, as it seems to give me a better appearance thusly. I am somewhat reminded of MAC’s Invisible Set. HD Powder does seem to help my foundation look good throughout the day, and it doesn’t let it settle into my fine lines as easily.

What do you think of makeup designed for HD? Do you feel like it makes a difference?
