Temptalia Asks You

Are you a fan of mineral makeup? If so, what are your favorite brands? If not, why not?

I’ve tried it with minimal success thus far, so I’m hoping you will all share with me some great ideas!

Have you ever used an eyeshadow as a blush? If you did, what did you use? Did it turn out well?

I definitely have!  I’ve used some iridescent kind of shadows, like say Nanogold, on cheeks to highlight, or even Da Bling for a light pink blush!

Would you ever pay more than $100 for a skin cream? If you found a skin cream that worked well for you (obviously you wouldn’t spend $100 for something that didn’t work!), would you dole out the cash for it? Would you succumb to pricey creams if they worked for you? What would a $100+ cream need to do for you in order to buy it?

For me, I want visible signs of SOMETHING GOOD, whether that’s increased luminosity, skin health, reduced acne, etc. Since I’m not exactly aging very much, it’s hard for me to really tell when a cream hits home on the anti-aging, wrinkle-reduction/prevention front, but if I could see it? That’d be GOLDEN!

Do you ask yourself questions before you buy something? Do you ask, “Will I wear this often?” or “Do I have anything similar?” What do you ask yourself when you consider a product for purchase?

I think about how often I will use it, whether it will work with products I already have (undoubtedly, this is usually a yes), how many similar colors do I have, do I really need it, and do I really want to pay that much?

Do you pay attention to ingredient lists? Are you meticulous and only use products that contain (or don’t!) certain ingredients? Do you never look?

I look sometimes, but admittedly, I tend not to since I haven’t experienced major problems with the vast number of products I’ve tried. Then again, my skin has never been perfect, so perhaps I should!

What beauty tips do you wish you had known ten years ago? And for our younger folk (myself included!), how about just five years ago?

Probably sunscreen and using a cleanser everyday! You’d think the cleanser would be a duh thing, but when you don’t wear makeup, I found it never occurred to me that I needed to cleanse my face any more than I did already by showering.

P.S. – What did you do this weekend? (Or will do?)
