Are you prone to impulse beauty buying? Do you tend to buy more than you intended? How do you cope with impulse buying?

Temptalia's Answer.

I actually do a lot of shopping online. I find that I’m rarely tempted by something strictly from online photos, but if you take me to a counter, I get all sorts of distracted by pretty things. I try to regularly window shop online and see what new things are out… and it sort of helps curbs the urge for impulses. I also try not to go to Nordstrom TOO often!

What’s your philosophy on makeup? Take that as what you think that means!

Temptalia's Answer.

Makeup to me is an outlet to have fun, try new things, and get creativity flowing. It’s not always about making things perfect or absolutely flawless; a lot of it is really just trying things out and enjoying making mistakes to learn about what works, doesn’t, and how to improve. I love makeup because it’s fun, not because there’s a right or wrong way to do it. It’s great for restoring my confidence when I’m feeling low or highlighting my favorite features when I’m in a good mood.

What do you think of movie-themed makeup? (e.g. Twilight, Alice in Wonderland) Cheesy? Adorable?

Temptalia's Answer.

I think if I was in love with the movie/theme, I might like it. Otherwise, it’s really just about the quality!

Do you prefer your eyeshadows in pots or palettes? Do you depot shadows to fit into palettes? Only buy from brands with palette options?

Temptalia's Answer.

I prefer palettes myself. I just find I forget about anything that isn’t in the palette — if it’s in the palette, I’ll see it when I’m feeling like a blue eyeshadow or a pink one.
