What do you do with cream products that have dried out? Do you try to salvage them? How? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’ve heard that Inglot’s Duraline works really well for this purpose, but I don’t think I have it. I’d probably toss, though, given my needs.

What kind of products should be limited edition? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI like seasonal color collections, but I’d like to see more brands incorporate really bestselling limited edition shades into their permanent ranges when that color would fill in a gap. I don’t think skin care or mascara formulas should be limited edition.

How do you figure out what makeup to use each time you apply your makeup? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI keep makeup I’ve photographed but need to test in clear plastic bins, so then I rummage through there to figure out what to test next!

Do you have an at-home pampering routine? How often do you indulge in it? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerFor me, it’s a long, hot shower and exfoliating from head-to-toe, actually remembering to moisturizer from head-to-toe (I’m great when it comes to my face but not the body!), and some sort of mask (usually hydrating these days). I’d say once every other week or so!

What question would you like to see asked here? I need ideas! The best questions are open-ended, discussion questions, less “what’s your favorite ___” kind of questions — those are used in other posts, like Hit List and Survey Says! :)

Temptalia's AnswerThank you for the ideas! I look forward to using your questions :)

What do you do if you can’t get an eyeshadow to blend out perfectly? Do you start over? Have a last ditch effort/trick? Just go with it?

Temptalia's AnswerIf it’s MY fault, then I’ll keep trying and eventually try to use another, slightly lighter color to diffuse it more or try fingertips or a sponge applicator. If it’s more likely because the eyeshadow is dry or thin, I’ll blend and try to make it work with tools (but no added eyeshadows) and then leave it as-is, which works since I also want to show its shortcomings for reviews. In real life, it’s unlikely someone is going to notice a little unblended color on your eye if it’s not 100% perfect.
