Do you like shopping at makeup counters or prefer self-serve displays (like Sephora)? What’s your preference?

Temptalia's Answer.

I like laid-back makeup counters, because I do like to peruse without being bothered or sold to, but I do like having someone dedicated to the line there in case I do need help. I love the variety in Sephora, and I love Sephora for being a makeup mecca, but I find it to feel a little dirty with all of the testers in various states of disarray. (I’m germaphobic, could you tell?) It’s also not as easy to ask a question or try something on–you have to track someone down.

What beauty/makeup products do you refuse to buy online? Why?

Temptalia's Answer.

I really, really hate the idea of buying any products from a brand I’ve never tried or seen in-store before. I also hate buying foundation online!

When do you remove your makeup? Right before bed? When you get home?

Temptalia's Answer.

I try to remove it when I’m not leaving the house any more, so if it’s when I get back from school or errands or whatever, that’s usually when I take my makeup off!

When do you throw away makeup? Do you follow the guidelines?

Temptalia's Answer.

I only follow the guidelines on products like sunscreen or skincare (based on opening date) as well as mascara. Otherwise, I go by smell, taste, texture, consistency, etc.
