Happy Sunday!

How has your weekend been treating you thus far?  My husband and I had our date night last night, which is quite low key: we have a nicer dinner out and avoid checking our phones, ha!  I also reorganized my makeup bathroom a bit more and separated my brushes out by type/shape so I can find them better while doing my makeup.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl
Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl

Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl ($28.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “pinkish mauve with copper sheen.” It’s a rosy brown with golden copper shimmer. Maybelline Charming Cocoa (125) (LE) is lighter, less shimmery. NARS More (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Everlasting Nude (LE, $19.50) is less brown, less shimmery. MAC Hot Spell (LE, $15.00) is darker, browner. MAC Over Indulgence (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, sheerer. Bobbi Brown Uber Suede (P, $24.00) is browner, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This shade is part of the full coverage range of Lip Vinyls, and it did have mostly opaque coverage. It had a lightweight, almost gel-like consistency that glided over the lips easily and covered evenly for the most part and was non-sticky. I noticed that this particular shade had a stronger mint scent and related tingle (not a sting, though) than others I’ve tried in the past. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was very hydrating.

What I love about the color of pewter is the variety… it can lean cool, silvery or warmer, more like a dirty, antique gold. Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Sephora Lunar Eclipse — a sparkling silver and gold mix
  2. MAC Antique Diamond — a medium-dark pewter with warm undertones
  3. Dior Etoile — a light, shimmering silver and gold
  4. Sugarpill Tiara — – a silver-leaning pewter
  5. L’Oreal Gilded Envy — a dark pewter with bronze and antique gold shimmer

Temptalia Asks You


What lighting do you prefer for applying makeup? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI like really bright lights, and preferably, ones that aren’t hot! I love the brightness of the lights I have now, but they’re SO hot that I feel like I’ll sweat all my makeup off before I’m done sometimes!

Chanel Tisse Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, pink and purple selection of shades. Overall, the quad had good color payoff, soft, smooth textures that were easy to apply to bare skin as well as blended well. All four shades wore well for over nine hours on me, with the darkest shade wearing slightly longer. To reiterate, these are significantly lighter (smaller) at 0.07 oz. for the entire quad, though visually they don’t seem particularly small. Baked formulations often weigh less than more traditional powder formulas do, but it’s hard to say if it contains as many uses as the regular quads.

Tisse Camelia #1 is described as a “grey lilac.” It’s a medium-dark, plummy brown with subtle warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, and it applied very smoothly and easily. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. Bobbi Brown Smokey Grey (LE, $21.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Mugshot (P, $18.00) is warmer, more frosted. Makeup Geek Twilight (P, $5.99) is lighter. Chanel Gri-Gri (101) (LE, $29.50) is lighter. theBalm Just This Once Jamie (P, $16.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo (P, $18.00) is more frosted. MAC Rare Find (LE, $21.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Camelia #2 is described as a “rosy white.” It’s a light, slightly muted, white with a frosted finish and subtle cool undertones. In the pan, you can see the pink tinge, but applied, I couldn’t really detect them but cooler complexions might see more of a nuance. It had great color payoff, while the texture of the powder was finely-milled and silky but just a smidgen powdery. The color stayed on well for nine and a half hours before fading. It is a basic shade, so there are several very similar shades of white eyeshadows: See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Camelia #3 is described as a “lavender pink.” It’s a light, peachy-pink with a golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque, but the texture was very soft and smooth. This shade wore well for almost nine and a half hours on me. theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is a smidgen lighter. theBalm #4 (P, $6.50) is less pink. MAC Sweet Allure (P, $15.00) is pinker, less shimmery. Dior Golden Flower #1 (LE) is warmer. Laura Mercier Primrose (P, $22.00) is darker. Too Faced Ringleader (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Chanel Delicatesse #3 (LE) is pinker. theBalm Stubborn (P, $16.00) is less pink. MAC Pink Frontier (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Camelia #4 is described as an “eggplant brown.” It’s a smoldering, purpled plum with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly finish. It had excellent color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly. This shade wore well for ten hours before it started to show very faint signs of creasing. Too Faced Rhinestone (P, $16.00) is lighter. Too Faced Sugar Plum (LE, $16.00) is warmer, lighter. LORAC Deep Purple (P) is similar. MAC Pinkluxe #5 (P) is darker. Illamasqua Queen of the Night (LE) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
