Temptalia Asks You

What was the last product you bought that you LOVED? Why do you love it?

Temptalia's Answer.

I think it’s gotta be Dior’s Coral Riviera blush! I adore the color and soft sheen it gives me. I also love Chanel’s Aqualumiere Glosses!

    Blooming blush, it’s perfect! And the Cremesheen Glasses are fab <3

  3. Okami

    I rarely buy things I don’t love, but out of my recent purchases, my favorite has to buy MAC’s Style Minx lipglass from the Heatherette collection. I managed to get my hands on one and I love it so much I’ve been looking for a second one ever since – I was actually asking about it just today at my nearest CCO! :)

  4. dolce aria

    Marquis’d, and MUFE’s fushia pigment. I’m surprised at all the uses i’ve found for hot pink eyeshadow, heh. And Diorshow mascara, and Dior forever foundation(and i’m HARD to fit for a foundation too!)

  5. Lingping

    Big Bow l/s! Almost-subtle and in-your-face fuchsia at the same time <3

  6. Anitacska

    Grand Duos mineralize blushes, esp Intenso. Love it! :)

  7. Lineur Intense by L’Oreal – my first liquid liner, and I managed not to screw it up on my first try! That’s MAGIC.

  8. Lauren

    Bobbi Brown’s Heather cream eyeshadow and Nars Sweet Revenge Lip gloss!

  9. Jen

    Mac’s studio sculpt foundation and concealer. I love them both more than Mac’s other foundations and concealers, I wear them every day and my skin looks like porcelein.

  10. Mikki

    MSF Blonde. But that’s also because it was like a rib out of my body. (I’m a student with no money) So I HAD to love it. And I do. It’s my first MSF and I love some shine on my face!

  11. Stephanie

    lavender whip lipstick:)

    • Leigh

      Second!! Also, Peppermint Patti! I’ve gotten a million compliments since I’ve put it on. I’ve also convinced a couple of my skeptical girlfriends to purchase! : )

  12. charlieee

    benefit coralista! i don’t normally put on blush to school but this gives me a healthy flush of colour without looking like i put on blush. been using this everyday now! :)

  13. Stila Pretty Face set that I got from Beautycrunch, since I’m not in US, it took 2 weeks for me to get it. No regret at all :)

  14. sprut

    smashbox o-glow. I know it gets a lot of grief from other people but I love this blush. It really works for me.

    • Heather

      I got that one a long time ago but haven’t used it. If you don’t mind, could you tell me what is the best way to apply it? what brush did you use? thanks

  15. e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush
    Absolutely for stippling liquid foundation. I actually love it more than my MAC 187 brush

  16. Fie

    Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser. It’s getting more love from me than my MUFE HD foundation.

  17. Paperdaisy

    Mac lipgloss in Viva Glam iv, the perfect shimmery nude shade that goes with all looks! A close second is Benefit Dandellion powder!

  18. pia

    ruby woo & girl about town lipsticks and also warm eyes palette holiday 2008.

  19. Laneige baked eyeshadow trio. I love this thing, it’s amazing :)

  20. whitney

    i have tons of purchases that i love to death both drugstore and high end and of course lots of mac but ironically the most recently LOVED product has been a drugstore buy. L’oreals Double Extend beauty tubes tech make my eyes look wider open and goes on easy enough for someone who gets up at 430 am to go to work. I work on an ambulance so i sweat alot and nap whenever i can in between calls and this mascara doesnt smudge and its so easy to remove. just soak your lashed with a tissue in warm water and wipe it off, no transfer to your lower lids and it comes off so easily. but when i wake up that early and work such long shifts i need that extra boost of mascara so i dont look dead and asleep while working. of course on my off days i wear dior blackout waterproof for amazing length volume and stayability. ive cried and then gone swimming with this on (all at my sisters wedding) and it didnt budge until i used a makeup remover to take it off. between the two i dont need any other mascara ever! who would have thought i found two HG mascaras.

  21. I bought CORALISTA blush by Benefit and i LOVE it!!! the color is soo pretty…i have similar kind of color, but this has exact lovely amount of sheen, smoothness…as if it was designed by me for me…:)

  22. one more…warm eye palatte from the holiday 2008 collection…its soo pretty!!!

  23. Daria

    Eve Pearl HD dual Foundation!!! I discovered thru Christines recommendation(thanks Christine!!!), and it is honestly the best foundation I have ever used! And I thought it was aggravate my already sensitive, acne, oily skin, but it is actually IMPROVING it!! I love the two color technique, and am so excited that my makeup is making my skin look and feel great!

  24. Wet n Wild’s new Speed Glosses!! I love these, they are non sticky, last a long time, pigmented, and taste like mint! They remind me of the CO Bigelow ones from B&BW!

  25. MAC Cremesheen glass in Petite Indulgence. It looks so bright in the tube, but it is really sheer and more natural looking than you would expect. It helps brighten up my whole face!

    • Lizzclare

      i love this too and even got another 2 as backups from the mac website the other day when i saw they had stock


  26. Monica

    MAC mineralize blush in love thing.

    before that my fave go-to blush was NARS dolce vita. ive used dolce vita like…once since i’ve gotten love thing. that blush is absolutely GORGEOUS.

  27. Marlo

    Dior Nude Foundation
    It’s very lightweight with amazing coverage.

    Pink Fish TLC
    Leaves my lips nice and moisturized with the perfect tinge of pink :)

  28. Hipona

    Nars blush in Exhibit, A a gorgeous bright red very flattering in my light complexion.

  29. HoneyBrown1976

    Revlon Super Lustrous lip gloss! For the price, I get a great gloss.

  30. Lavender Whip
    Chanel Make Up Base (the actual name is a mouthful)
    MAC Wipes!!!!

  31. Alexa

    The Nars love set. Everything is pigmented and looks good on me. :)

  32. Michelle

    EcoTools 6pc Brush Set
    HK Pink Fish TLC
    MAC Hue l/s

  33. Jennifer

    Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes Palette

  34. Lisa

    She Loves Candy l/g from the MAC HK Collection. I had 2 lists when I went to get HK, Must-Haves and a secondary list. This lg wasn’t on either but when I got there I just loved it!

  35. elle

    Possum Nose Pink from the MAC Dame Edna Collection. Its a great red for me, its not too bold. Its gorgeous.

  36. Nell

    Moon River Grand Duo – so pretty!

  37. Tanya

    I have enjoyed a lot of things since buying dazzleglass BUT nothing that I have LOVED as much as the dazzleglasses :)

  38. Shereen

    Fashion Scoop creamsheen lipglass. I love the color and the way it feels on my lips.

  39. Portia

    MUFE face n body foundation… my search is over!

  40. Andrea

    Moon River Mineralize Blush & Perfect Topping MSF! I love them both!

  41. Audrey

    The Lollipop Lovin’ lipstick from the Sugar sweet collection! I think it’s similar to Nymphette which is my favorite lipglass.

  42. nancy s

    Kate Von D eye shadow palette. Fits perfectly in my purse!

  43. Amy

    Amazingly enough, it’s those Victoria’s Secret lipglosses in the squeeze tube. They taste and smell absolutely delicious [well, most of them] and I find they last on me for a long time. Very easy to carry around as well.

  44. Ashley

    Lancome Ageless Minerale mineral powder set. I’m not sure if I still buy in to the whole mineral powder thing anymore seeing as they all seem to have the same “bad” minerals in them (mica, bismuth oxychloride etc) but the fact still remains that nothing looks as natural on my face as a mineral powder foundation.

    I’ve switched from BM to Lancome and love how non shiny my face is, and the brush is SO soft

  45. Crystal

    I loved the MSF in refined!

  46. Richel

    BUTTERNUTTy shadestick!! =)

  47. Meike

    I just bought another tube of Clinique’s lash power mascara. Love this stuff!

  48. msviolet

    Cakeshop shadestick from Sugarsweet and Coquette e/s. Love grey :)

  49. Colleen

    I absolutely love HK lipglass in Sweet Strawberry. It is such a great color for me, plus the packaging is so cute! It was my only HK purchase, and I’m so glad I did.

  50. Philippine

    It’s MAC’s Slimshine in “scant”. Normally i don’t like wearing lip stuff that much because it always needs to be checked, reapplied, and weirdly always makes my lips look smaller. It’s a hassle. But this! It’s like a lip balm, which gives just a hint of color, which is the perfect shade…maybe one shade darker than my natural lips, but the exact same tone.. and it’s perfect!

    The best product isn’t necessarily the gimmick, but it’s about what’s the right tone for your skin and overall appearance, and what’s comfortable to wear.

    • Susan

      I absolutely love Mac Lollipop Lovin lipstick, too. It’s the first time that I actually bought a backup!

  51. Caramel

    It’s actually a d/s item: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector. I love it! I don’t use foundation or even a TM. I apply the concealer side under my eyes and the highlighter around my lips, on my chin, bridge of nose and forehead. It lasts throughout the day w/o creasing and is very easy to blend. Totally HG status!

  52. Sasha

    I just stopped at Sephora yesterday for a quick exchange, & took a few minutes to look around. I was on the phone w/ my mom and kind of blindly browsing when I happened upon it: B.E. Buxom Lip Polish in Jessica. It’s a beautiful peachy-nude with pink iridescence. I almost squealed out loud! Haha.

  53. Melissa

    i just bought mac fluidline in blacktrack… so in love!!!

  54. Andrea

    YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in Nude Beige!!! Love it!!!

  55. Anne

  56. Studio Sculpt foundation and Lavender Whip. Loved them, but I didn’t get to love them for long.

  57. yarid

    Lancome’s color design eyeshadow in Fligree….love it, really brings out the color of my eyes, and stila convertible color in peony….love it

  58. I love the Chanel Tweed blushes! Also I’m with Christine – that Dior blush is wonderful! And of course anything that I’ve gotten from Guerlain has knocked my socks off :-) Their Kiss Kiss glosses are A-MAZE-ING!!

  59. Mandy

    Viva Glam V. I thought I wouldn’t need it but when I did actually get it…WOW!

  60. MichMulls

    NARs blush in Desire and Sin. Nars has the best blushes. Also just got Bad Education lipgloss from NARs – such a beautiful strawberry red!

  61. Kella

    Last purchase I realllllly loved…. Petticoat MSF. I think it is so so so so so beautiful.

    • Nicole N.

    Physician’s Formula Summer Eclipse Bronzer in Moonlight, because it wasn’t too muddy for my fair skin and it gave my face a long-awaited glow.

  69. Rachael

    I’m really lovin Lancome’s Color Fever lipstick in Pink Attitude. It’s such a gorgous pink and gives a lovely amount of shimmer as well.

    I’m also really diggin Chanel glossimers in Pin-Up, Constellation, and Gold Shine.

    As for MAC, last weekend I used Sweet William Blushcreme on my cheeks with Astral Rays Glimmershimmer to highlight. Sweet William is absolutely stunning on my cheeks lol!

    MAC so ceylon MSF…I wear it nearly everyday since I got it a few months ago ..overall it’s my most beloved beauty item.

  77. Ceci

    MAC Dipdown Fluidline. It doesn’t come off of my oily eyelids even without primer. Also love the StudioSculpt foundation because a little bit gives good coverage even without concealer.

  78. Tam

    Tarte mascara! I know people have bagged on this mascara but it looks great on my lashes and the first time I wore it, my hubby said “wow, I never noticed what long lashes you have!”.

  79. Katya

    I also love my MAC longwear. It’s fab too.

  85. Terry

  98. jenn

    MAC’s Pink Fish TLC…LOVE it!!!

  99. Sarah

    i’ve fallen in love with the grand duo hot planet – the lilac-ish side mixed with the warmer bronzey bits – it’s just so underrated!

    i also decided to venture into foundation, i picked up a lancome hydra compact foundation and have fallen in love with the cooling sensation, the subtle, natural coverage over my uneven toned forehead, the candlelit glow it emits and that absolutely gorgeous fragrance!
    i’m just not so crazy about the bland packaging.
    sorry, i’m aware i got carried away there!

  100. L

    Cover Girl Lash Blast, decided to give it a try after seeing it in a two pack for $10 ($5 each! great deal). Loved it as it doesn’t clump but sad that it doesn’t provide the volume that diorshow does.
