Temptalia Asks You


Do you consider your eating habits when thinking about your skin? Do you limit or omit certain foods? Drink extra water?

Feet–the bane of my existence–and yet, they just cannot be ignored, especially when we’re nearing the onslaught of full-time sandal and open-toed shoe season. Here are some of my product favorites to help keep my feet soft, smooth, and unscathed throughout the summer months of flip flops, high heels, and beach-going.  How do you keep your feet fit for summer?

AB happy feet ($95.00) is for those who really want luxury, without going to the spa, and they are also looking for a product of a higher grade to aid them in their foot care. Happy Feet has 20% pure glycolic, which has been shown to help treat roughness and calluses. Each jar of Happy Feet contains sixty treated pads, and you use these pads over the area you want to cleanse. Along with glycolic, it has antixoidants, vitamins A, C, E, Co-Q10, as well as green tea. www.abskincarestore.com

Fruits & Passion Pedicure Set ($24.00) includes a deodorizing cream (60ml), exfoliating paste (60ml), and deodorizing mist (60ml). The deodorizing cream helps keep your feet super soft, and one of the best parts about it is that it dries pretty quick. It’s tough for me to lotion up my toes and heels without finding some reason to walk about. The exfoliating paste gives you a taste of spa luxury in the privacy of your own bathroom. The deodorizing mist helps to neutralize odors and reduce feet sweat (I know, I know, EW!), but most of all, it is really refreshing to spritz tired feet. Hey, we spritz our faces with Avian and Fix+, why not our feet! www.fruits-passion.com

Earth Therapeutics Clean + Cool Foot Wipes ($5.99) are ideal for on-the-go foot fixes. The packaging is relatively small, so it can be carried in the majority of purses. Each wipe has both tea tere and mint to clean and refresh feet simultaneously. I actually really love to use these after a beach trip, because who knows what you might step on! These are also great after I’ve worn flip flops all day, too. www.earththerapeutics.net

If you were using MAC’s Electro lipstick?, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include Electro! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

Swatches courtesy of Jamie!  These make the Neon2 pigments look MUCH more wearable, don’t you think?  I ordered a set yesterday, so I’ll be sure to swatch them for you whenever they arrive (my bet is on Wednesday, unfortunately!).

I really liked how this looked in person! It seems a bit TOO much in the close-ups, though. I can’t tell you how pretty Elite looks over Pink Pearl nor how lovely that golden-warm brown color looks with pinks and purple.

Happy weekend, all!

I used Pink Pearl pigment on lid, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid (in place of Warming Trend), Stars ‘N Rockets eyeshadow on middle of lid, Climate Blue eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had True Romantic blush (LE) with Lightly Lilac beauty powder on cheeks. I wore Utter Pervette lipstick (LE) with Crystal Rose lipglass (LE) on my lips.

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

Elite = Woodwinked; Climate Blue = Deep Truth + Parfait Amour; Femme-fi = Shroom; True Romantic = Breath of Plum; Utter Pervette = Pervette; Crystal Rose = Stars ‘N Rockets + gloss
