Temptalia Asks You

What are your makeup staples? What specific products do you constantly use? (If you have too many, think of maybe 10!)

Temptalia's Answer.

Studio Fix Fluid foundation, 182 buffer brush, Mario Badescu cleanser, Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer pretty much top my list.

    Hey Christine!

    What happened to the Dior Nude foundation that you did a review on last year that you said you loved? I remember you writing that you liked it better than Studio Fix Fluid! I just got the Dior Nude today so I just wanted to ask if you still like it/use it? Thank you and thanks for all the time and effort you put into the blog! It is much appreciated : )
