How much do you pay attention to a product’s claims? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerIt’s no secret that products in these parts live and die by the claims they make, and I’ve been looking at them for so long now that I really think brands should be held accountable for what they say (I would rather they made reasonable claims!).

How do you figure out what colors to wear together (in a makeup look)? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerA lot of it is experience, I think, and knowing what kind of combinations I like seeing together (or which ones I don’t!). You can also get a lot of inspiration from collection promo shots, palettes, quads, etc. that are already showcasing a set of shades together. Another way is to swatch everything on your arm or hand first, so you can see how things blend or pair together before putting in all the effort.

How do you tend to react when a product gets a lot of marketing, hype, or buzz? Are you more or less inclined to check it out? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’m pretty skeptical of anything that gets a lot of buzz before it’s even in the hands of people, but I’ve seen too many brands riding high on the success of their last product put out something less impressive the next time, so past performance doesn’t convince me to buy into something new.
