What limited edition product would you like to see repromoted? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerOh, there are so many… Guerlain Gems, probably. I just find that one hard to replace, and it’s a shade I usually reach for on off-days, so it is one that I wear. I love Chanel Dragon, and though I haven’t found a perfect dupe for it, there are plenty of gorgeous red lipsticks that I enjoy wearing as well.

Are there any makeup products you don’t feel comfortable wearing? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerLash growth serums are a pass for me. I also don’t like to use any glitters and the like that aren’t eye safe. Dyes that aren’t eye safe (at least, not here in the U.S.) make me cautious as well, though I have inadvertently worn these shades where I know that I haven’t found myself having a noticeable adverse reaction.

Do you have any unconventional makeup tips or tricks? Share your wisdom!

Temptalia's AnswerMine has always been to apply gel eyeliner with a similarly-colored eyeliner pencil to get more precision. It also helps to ensure a really even, opaque line.

How do you refresh your makeup after a long day? (Perhaps after school or work, and you’re on your way out to dinner and so forth!)

Temptalia's AnswerI would recommend having a blotting or pressed powder on hand, which can help shift and keep foundation and base products in place. I would redo eyeliner, take a darker shadow to smoke out the outer corner/crease, and reapply lip color. If my blush had faded a bit, I might consider patting a bit more on.

What brand do you think has changed the most over the years? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerTough question! Urban Decay, perhaps, because of their massive and enduring venture into all things neutral, given their history of bolder, edgier color. MAC has seemed to rely more heavily on collaborations over the last few years than ever before (though they have done collaborations for quite sometime). NARS seems more aggressive as a brand with more launches than they used to have, plus collaborations.

Do you prefer your products (makeup or skincare) scented or unscented? Why? What are your favorite (and least favorite) scents?

Temptalia's AnswerI prefer unscented for most products, though I would rather some tolerable scent than a lingering scent as well. For lip products, I like subtle vanilla or unscented. For skincare, I don’t like anything heavily fragranced or perfume-y.
