Temptalia Asks You


Do you keep products just for their packaging? Even if the product doesn’t work for you or no longer usable?

Temptalia's AnswerDefinitely! I have some older MAC compacts and limited edition glosses that I won’t use, but I’ve kept more for posterity. I’m sure, eventually, I will part with it, lol!

What celebrity’s makeup do you like a lot? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI know it’s weird, but I don’t really keep up with celebrities, so for me, nobody really stands out!

What was the last beauty product you thought you’d love but you ended up hating? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerOh, there have been so many. I think Dior’s Gold Shock highlighter, because I love highlighters and high-end ones at that (for their impossibly soft textures), but I wanted to fling it across the room after using it.

What was the last beauty product you thought you’d hate but you ended up loving? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerMaybe the NYX Macaron Lippies — I was fairly skeptical of them once I swatched on my arm, but they did better than anticipated. I didn’t LOVE most of them, though, but a few were nice! :)

What was the last product you purchased a back up of? How many did you buy? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerHmm, I know I stocked up the most on Chanel Dragon (I think I bought four or five) a few years ago. I think the last would be Burberry Trench Eyeshadow, which I bought two (one to replace my almost-empty one and one to have on hand). It’s my go-to brow highlight shade – just love it (and it’s totally boring, I get it).

How do you handle criticism or negativity about your makeup routine or stash? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerGenerally, I would just let it roll off and move on, because the majority of people I interact with are close friends or family, so it would only be a casual acquaintance that might say something, but I find it pretty rare. But here are a few things I might say: “It’s not your money” or “This is my hobby and creative outlet” or “It’s not your face” (if it’s about my makeup choices).
