What’s your current lip care routine? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI usually find I do enough swatching of lip products that exfoliation is overkill (the removal process of 20 lipsticks back-to-back is quite effective, haha!), so I actually don’t use a lip exfoliator specifically, though if it’s been a slow week or a “stop taking photos, write more reviews” kind of week, then I use a sugar scrub. I use Jack Black or Tom Ford Lip Balm with occasional use of Bite’s Agave Lip Mask if products I tested really dried out my lips at night and early morning (before I start testing anything).

What was the last product you hit pan on? (Or the product’s equivalent of “pan”.) Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’m down to the end of one of my Guerlain Gems lipsticks :( I only have one back-up (which is also partially used already).

What brand has the best promotions? (Sales, GWPs, etc.) Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’m a weird customer, since most of the things I buy are to review on the blog, so I don’t typically wait for sales or a particular promotion. I tend to be more on the look out for large retailer promotions like when Neiman Marcus does their gift cards (spend $X, get $Y gift card) or Sephora % off.

Have you ever sold or traded makeup online? How did it go? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI have, but it was about ten years ago? I think! I did it through Livejournal, which worked well, but it was soooo long ago!

How do you apply your foundation currently? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI take one pump’s worth of foundation and dab it on my forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin, and then I take a brush like Real Techniques’ Expert Face and use downward strokes to spread out the foundation and light patting motions to smooth everything into place after I’ve spread most of the product out.
