Beautiful Beginnings with Hourglass

Beautiful Beginnings with Hourglass

What was the first Hourglass product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Hourglass is one of my favorite brands, because I think they put out a well-edited line of products. I love their eyeshadows, lipsticks, glosses, and primer range.

Share your first time experiences with Hourglass in the comments! 🙂

Rant & Rave: Sheer Lipgloss

This Week’s Topic: Sheer Lipgloss!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about sheer lipgloss. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: They’re awesome for layering, but they can run together – they can just be so similar that it’s like, “oh, another sheer gloss?” They usually don’t wear as long either!

Temptalia Asks You

I’m pretty confident–as long the shade doesn’t venture into black, I’d say, then I can’t say I feel particularly confident! You have to get used to seeing yourself with such dramatic color, so wear the color around the house, when you don’t have to go anywhere – and work your way up to wearing it out!

  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: I want to say Urban Decay something-rather, just because those are the palettes I most remember, but they’re all pretty good overall – the last BoS was the biggest miss I remember, but I don’t think a lot of people loved that one. I’d say MAC pre-made quads since they tend to be misses more often than not…
  • Most Underrated: Inglot Eyeshadow Palettes, just because they’re cheap, come in a bajillion colors, and are good quality!
