What’s your five-minute look? What do you wear when you’ve only got a few minutes before you’re out the door?

Temptalia's Answer.

Tinted moisturizer, whatever mascara I can grab quickest, a quick slick of Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow (again, whatever I grab), and a lipgloss.

Do you purchase beauty/makeup products off of eBay/auction sites? Or are you too leery?

Temptalia's Answer.

I have, but it’s on very rare occasions. I do prefer to purchase from known retailers myself (Nordstrom, Sephora, etc.).

Do you like to receive beauty/makeup as a gift? Or do you prefer to buy for yourself?

Temptalia's Answer.

I very rarely do — there are occasions where I’ve asked, but I’m 1) too impatient to wait and 2) don’t want my friends/family enabling me even more!

When you find something that works, do you stick with it? Or do you move on quickly?

Temptalia's Answer.

I do and I don’t. I tend to still try out new things, but I keep in mind my favorites and end up going back to them at another time.

How big of a role does price play in your beauty purchases? Makes a huge difference? Not much?

Temptalia's Answer.

There are certain things out of my reach (y’know, like an $800 cream), but I don’t worry too much about price as I do about efficacy and whether I’ll like it or not. I also look at how many uses I’ll get out of it.

Do you research before you buy a beauty product? What kind of information do you try to find first?

Temptalia's Answer.

Yes and no. I don’t research in the sense that I’m playing scientist and trying to understand all of the ingredients and the like, but I do look into what I’m interested in and see what others are saying. I also look at claims vs. realm of reality.
