Temptalia Asks You


What beauty products do you tend to splurge on and which do you tend to save on? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI splurge on foundations and face powders (blushes, highlighters, etc.) the most. I don’t go really high-end/luxury for things (generally) like body wash, cleanser, skincare, and hand soap.

What makeup niches, if any, do you believe still need to be filled? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerMore good purple eyeshadows, larger foundation ranges, less “one shade fits all” marketing, more shadowy/gray/taupe contouring shades. I think you can find just about everything, but you won’t find it mainstream yet.

What misconceptions did you have about makeup before getting in to it? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerThat it was girly and superficial. There’s a lot to confidence building and something to be said about having an escape or creative outlet to get someone through a rough time. I know that just in my little corner of the web, the emails I have received from readers thanking me for helping them through a tough time, merely by providing something fun to read and play with, is a very strong reminder that makeup is anything but superficial. It is also for all folks of all walks.
