no purchases.
Relax and see a movie Sunday.

Merry Christmas Christine to you and your family. Hope Mellan had a great Bday. Those pictures are so beautiful as I love puppy pictures. xoxo for Mellan from me and the boys.!

OMG, was Mellan the cutest puppy EVER?!?!

Haul: Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick in Drake. My very first TF purchase. Still on the fence — I like the color but feel like it may be a little bit drying.
Weekend plans: A day trip to NH tomorrow, then visiting a new tea room with a friend on Sunday.
Do you have a green thumb?: More green than black, but I’ve still killed my share of plants over the years.

Haul:
HSN ($5 Off): Jay Manuel Beauty 2-Piece Lip Set with Makeup Bag [Avant Garde: The Ultimate Lipstick in Bright Pink and The Ultimate Lip Gloss – Pinch (bright pink)]. Received – wow really, really bright – will be nice for Spring/Summer.

Saks (20% Off): Tom Ford Lips & Boys (Malik). I know I wasn’t buying any more TF L&B, but Malik seemed so unique. I really like the shade more than Egon.

Laura Geller (35% Off): Eye Dew Cream Shadow Crayon (Amber, Amethyst, Opal, and Rose Gold), Baked Marble Eyeshadow/Baked Cake Liner Duo with Brush (Plum Pudding), Spackle Sample. [Katherine, I tried the shadow crayons today. They are more firm than the LG caviar Sticks but they still blend out really well with a firm brush or finger. I’ve had the shades on for almost 8 hours now and they haven’t budged or faded. I think they make a nice lower cost alternative. The amethyst is lighter and more “purple” than the LG one.]

Nordstrom: MAC Faerie Wishes Iridescent Pressed Powder (Sparkling Rose), 3 Samples. I am surprised at how much I love this powder. Makes a stunning highlighter for my fair/light skin. I’m hoping this shade will be made permanent or revived in another collection. I may buy a back-up to put away.

Ulta (20% Off): Lipstick Queen All That Jazz Lipstick (Paint the Town); Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub and Orange Cleansing Soap; The Body Shop Hand & Foot Beeswax Butter (2); Alterna Caviar – Anti-Aging 3 Minute Shine, Repair Rx Instant Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner, and Split Ends Mend; Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat; Nail Tek Foundation 2; 9 Samples (3 orders). All I can say is WOW for the LQ Paint the Town. It’s a stunning metallic cool red (“deep red with fuchsia pearls”) that surprisingly isn’t “too much” for a day look. I believe this is going to become one of my favs.

Sephora (Rouge Sale on Sale 20% Off): MUFE Studio Case, 3 Samples

Weekend plans: Plan on going to the butcher Saturday to restock my freezer. I’d like to go to Michael’s an get a realistic looking red flower for a stem vase. I might look for a chair or recliner for my master bedroom. It’s supposed to be around 75 here tomorrow (crazy weather for the East Coast – outside DC.) (And YES my daughter’s house is done…for the time being! Yippee!!!)

Do you have a green thumb?: Not unless I drop my shadow palette…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELLAN!

Michelle, thanks for the info on the Laura Geller Eye Dew crayons! I will wait for Ulta sale/coupon/value set, then get some, that way if they don’t work out, I can return in store. I’m also testing out some Elf Smudge Pot cream shadows ($3 each), verdict not in yet, but they look promising

Oooh let me know about the Elf…always looking for a good deal. Btw, I don’t think I posted it, but when i did an eye look with the Amber and Opal Laura Geller and the Khaki Laura Mercier, the only one that faded and “ran” (used it as a liner around my eye) was the Mercier one. Within 3-4 hours it looked like a hot mess.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that, the LM Caviar Sticks usually wear like iron on most people, but sounds like they won’t work on you πŸ™ The ELF Smudge Pots are great –smooth and budgeproof on my oily lids, can use alone or as a base, and can’t beat the $3 price. I got them in Ocean Blue (bold medium dark blue), Back to Basics ( light copper bronze ) and Wine Not (suppose to be a purple but it’s more of a brown with some purple undertones). All have a shimmer/metallic finish. There’s lots of swatches online. My only gripe is that I like to apply with my fingers, and the opening to the jar is kind of small, but you can use a brush too. ELF doesn’t accept returns either, but hey, for that price, it might be worth a try.

I thought it was really odd that the LM Stick smudged badly on me as typically I have no issues with any eyeliners. Next time I use one as a liner I’m going to try setting it with some powder. Awesome news on Elf – thank you. I quickly checked online at Target (for local stock) and my store is sold out of every one except “Brownie Points”. I’ll keep my eye open for them and maybe will try ordering them directly from Elf. Anything else good from Elf that you would recommend?

Because of their no return policy, I haven’t tried a lot, but I love their Illuminating Palette (4 powders), which is their $6 dupe of the Hourglass Ambient Powders. I don’t think it’s a close dupe, but I like it. It came out in summer, sold out in a nano-second, and they finally brought it back last month. The shimmer is way too subtle to be a highlighter, but I like to swirl all the colors together and use it as a finishing or setting powder, very kind to more mature skin. I was worried the bronze colors would be too warm or dark, but the powders are very sheer and subtle. I also like some of their brushes, decent quality at cheap price -their blush brush (b/c it’s small enough for my petite face), angled blush brush, small shadow smudge brush, and their eyeshadow C brush is very popular. Reader Rachel R. has tried a number of things from them, so maybe check with her too. I’d be curious, as I’m always trying to buy enough to get free shipping LOL

Merry Christmas, Christine. Thanks for always helping me stay beautiful (hair flip)! And happy birthday to Mellan. So adorable!

Happy birthday Mellan! Happy Holidays Christine. Hope you get to enjoy some time with your family!
Haul: Mac Hacylon Nights kit, Occ lip tar RTW in Synth, Mosh, stud,& Derelict.. Sleek blush in Antique and rose Gold. I was gifted the Benefit Box of blushes by my aunt. It includes a gift receipt. Hmm, not sure if I’m loving these though. I was wondering if you planned on reviewing them this year Christine?
Omg, another funny thing. I got a second tube of Nars Liv and silvia. Though these both were lost the week after cyber Mon. So, Nars had sent me replacements. They just showed up this week on my door step! Know I have doubles and will never go though these! I guess the right thing to do would be to offer them back to Nars since obviously the postal people messed this up.
Weekend plans: family Christmas this evening. Trying to catch Star Wars sometime.
Green Thumb: Yes, I do have a pretty goo green thumb.
Happy Holidays all!

Thanks, Nicole! So nice to hear that NARS showed up after all, but it is nice that they sent replacements, too. Glad to hear that didn’t go totally awry!

I don’t have the Benefit Box of Blushes for this year!

Merry Christmas πŸ™‚
I purchased my first fancying handbag from Rebecca Minkoff recently, a mini Mac in port. I bought the buxom look all you want Christmas set a while back as well as some mufe shadows.also a Lise Watier eyeliner in opale, perfect for the holidays. On a makeup no buy currently. Although I’ve gotten other ppl a few bits and bobs. Having family dinner today and tomorrow. Maybe brave the Boxing Day rush. Like not at all. I’m more of a read in the garden type of gal.

Merry Christmas, Bronwyn! πŸ™‚

Congrats on your new bag! I love the mini Macs. They’re super cute. Hard to resist since they put them out in a bajillion colors, too!

YAY! Laura Mercier highlight! I’m so in love with that one.

Haul: Nothing beauty related this week! I can’t wait for Bite Beauty to launch more matte creme lip crayons!!
Weekend plans: I need to try and do some hmwk! πŸ™‚ and I’ll probably do some online Boxing Day shopping!
Do you have a green thumb?: nope, but I do have a few plants that don’t take a whole lot of TLC to stay alive πŸ˜‰

Happy birthday Mellan! And merry christmas to you all!!
Haul: ACO Night Cream, but that was all πŸ™‚ Sooo excited for boxing sale! I got one beauty gift though, Nabla Cosmetics Diva Crime lipstick in Panta Rei <3
Weekend plans: I'm going to my boyfriends parents home and then Stockholm πŸ™‚
Do you have a green thumb?: I have a dead cactus. That's all I'm going to say lol

Awww, Happy Birthday Mellan!! You are too cute, I can see why Mama fell in love with you πŸ™‚
*Haul–Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Daniel, from MAC Faerie Whispers collection, foiled shadows in Enchanted Forest & Magic In Your Eyes, lipstick in Among The Fireflies
*Weekend-Christmas lunch at his sister’s and dinner at my sister’s, attend football game w/college friends on Sat, brunch w/ friends on Sun, will be partied out by Monday!
*Green thumb-I can only grow orchids, but my mom has the green thumb, can grow veggies and flowers

Mellan is a handsome guy!

Haul: UD Vice 4, UD Wende’s Contraband Palette (yay sale!!), UD Midnight Cowboy, UD Midnight Cowboy Rides Again (I had to laugh when I was swatching in store and saw the names – I know a lot of older comments mention every palette had one of these two and it was overdone but I missed out on the palettes with these in them as I’m just now starting to buy UD), UD Toasted, UD Psychedelic Sister, Laura Mercier Highlight 01, Sigma Dry and Shape Brush Tower, and Zahra Beauty glam tray. I love the deluxe samples you get from Sephora so I try to order close to the $25 mark and then order the next thing(s) on my list.

We might go furniture shopping tomorrow, will have to see what the crowds are like.

I have a black thumb πŸ™ I am a darn good fur mom but I can’t keep a plant alive to save my life. I think I over tend to them and they end up drowning or getting fried with all the soil supplements, treatments, etc. I have done. We have planter pots that just hold dog toys now. 😐

Merry Christmas to Christine and Team Temptalia and to all Temptalia commenters. Visiting here, reading all of the posts and comments and becoming a part of the community has become a bright spot in my day. πŸ™‚

Awwww! Happy B-day, Mellan. Merry Christmas, Christine and everyone else who celebrates!

Haul:
*I bought — Too Faced La Creme in Unicorn Tears. Katy Perry Meow and Royal Revolution fragrances. A bunch of e.l.f. stuff, including their new brow products and Flawless Finish Foundation in Porcelain (It might be too dark, but I still need to test it on my face. It’s pretty high coverage.) My first month from Notoriously Morbid’s Vanishing Cabinet subscription service. I felt like I was on their waiting list forever, but it was worth the wait. Ipsy and Lips Monthly subscription bags.

*Christmas — Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set from my younger son. My older son gave me a bunch of Morphe palettes: 35W, 35P, 35E, 9B (The Blushed Blush Palette). “Face Paint: The Story of Makeup” by Lisa Eldridge. Tom Ford Lips & Boys mini in Stavros (best stocking stuffer ever!). Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette, Love Flush Blush Palette, and Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks. Japonesque Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette. LORAC Unzipped Palette. The Balm theManizer Sister Luminizer Palette. YSL Black Opium. Katy Perry Killer Queen gift set. (Plus non-beauty related gifts.)

Weekend plans: No set plans. My younger son has some friends coming over.

Do you have a green thumb? Not particularly. I can keep plants alive, but I’m not into them. I love flowers, but I don’t really have time to garden.

My younger son recognized the distinctive lipstick packaging as a brand I had, so he figured it was a good call. The set wasn’t on my wishlist, but I don’t mind having it.

Morphe eye palettes were on my wishlist, as I had never tried them. I wasn’t expecting my older son to get me three. The blush palette was a surprise. He’s very artistic and color conscious, so he actually does pay attention to what kind of colors I wear. He’s so sweet.

I have been wanting the Morphe 35P Plum palette for a few months but it was out of stock on Cult Beauty so I had to join the wait list for it. Then finally became available again this week and I ordered! I love purples ?.

Haul: Zip, zilch, nada thing!

Weekend plans: Hair & nails, per my usual. Play around with my stash, as I have no plans to go out, so I can get uber creative and fun!

Do you have a green thumb: Hmm, with outdoor gardening back in NJ, absolutely yes! Particularly my gorgeous flower garden I then had. But here??? Everything I’ve tried growing out here in AZ dies a terrible, wilted, disastrous death! I’ve pretty much given up.

Oh, but I DO have a fur-thumb! LoL!
Speaking of which, I forgot to look for Mellan’s pic, as I had quickly scrolled whilst trying to remember the last question, haha! He sure was the picture-perfect puppy!!! So cuddly looking! ?

One of the things I like most about AZ is the acceptability of synthetic grass. Next to no maintenance. I am all about that, lol!

Awww, Mellan was so cute as a puppy! You make me want to get a dog, even though I’m not a dog kind of person. πŸ™‚

Happy Holidays to you and your family!

I would venture to say that I bought nothing this week (bear in mind the stores are closed today and tomorrow, though).

Weekend plans: tomorrow, I’m roasting the turkey, prepping the stuffing, gravy and an appetizer to transport to sis in law’s for the big family Xmas dinner (what an idiotic idea was it to offer to BRING the hot turkey, gravy and the rest! What the heck is wrong with ME???); Sunday, I think I’ll just collapse, enjoy some peace and quiet with husband and my youngest son, who is home for a few days and maybe go to the gym (I sure need it).

Green thumb, pretty much yes – it’s all the digging and weeding I don’t like but I’m great at getting things planted to grow beautifully (my Japanese tree peonies are the envy of my neighbours!)

LOL! Wow! How far of a transport will that be? That reminds me of my friend carting her own wedding cake in her car – like five tiers, LOL! And realizing that was not the best move ever.

Christmas Haul: MAC Studio Conceal and Correct palette in “Light” (I found out that NC 15 suits me perfectly!), MAC’s Mini Patentpolish Lip Kit in “Nude” (love the shade Mojo Maker), Clarin’s Instant Concealer, Laura Mercier’s Artist Palette, Burberry’s Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base, and Guerlain’s Rouge G in “06 Garance.”

Weekend plans: None, at the moment other than going for a short run, since I’m trying to be a bit healthier while I have a bit of time off from work. I also have a feeling that I’ll be roped into seeing Star Wars (I’ve never seen any of them and am perfectly fine with continuing on with that pattern, lol!)

Do you have a green thumb?: No, not at all. I’ve managed to keep a plant going for about 3 months at the longest, before it inevitably bites the dust.

Haul: Dita Von Teese for MAC lipstick (seriously impressed with how fast they shipped this on a holiday week), Chanel Le Volume mascara. Drug store mascara have started flaking on me, so I’m seeing if high end works better.

Whoops.

Weekend Plans: enjoying my day off with my family.

Green thumb: not particularly. We don’t live in an area with great gardening potential.

Happy holidays, Christine!

What a beautiful doggie he is! No wonder you loved him straight away – he is so gorgeous.
Weekend plans: going to my sister’s for Christmas dinner with her partner’s family. They have a grand daughter called Olivia too, but she is a year older than our Olivia. The two girls got along famously, which was lovely to see. They adored their presents and both of them were totally exhausted last night. It didn’t help that it was a 37 degree Celsius day! So hot.
Today (Boxing Day in Aus) we are hosting another family dinner for our family. So it is back to the kitchen for me.
Green thumb – nope, not me.

Christmas Haul: I finally got UD Naked 2 – and I do love it already. I am going into Melbourne to visit Sephora, so I expect to buy things there from my Christmas money.

Have a wonderful Christmas Christine and I hope you get to rest a little. Thank you so much for your blog.

Happy birthday, Mellan! Awww… that sweet picture of him sleeping… I’m such a sucker for photos like that! So adorable!

Haul: I bought a MAC Huggable Lipcolour in Commotion — my first MAC lip product!! =) I received the KVD Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette, Tarte’s Light of the Party set, Guerlain’s Meteorites Perles des Neiges, KVD Studded Kiss in Lovecraft, the Buxom 2 of a Kind set with Mistress & Hooligan, a backup for my Bite lipstick in Opal, Wayne Goss brush #14 (from my daughter), Tocca’s Piccolo Tesoro set in Giulietta, Tocca parfum in Giulietta, a Tocca hand cream set, a clipless curling iron (from my son), and a Sephora gift card.

Weekend plans: Absolutely nothing if I have any say about it! LOL I’m exhausted from wrapping, cooking, and all the activity from the past week. Who else was at 7-11 at two-o’clock this morning because they thought one stocking wasn’t stuffed enough? Anyone?? Ahhh….

Do you have a green thumb?: I can grow just about anything (if no one else tries to “help out”) but I’m not so great at maintaining houseplants. Unlike children, houseplants don’t remind you that they need nourishment! I did have quite a garden one year while living in AZ. There were at least five flower varieties, and both beefsteak and cherry tomato plants. We had so many tomatoes that my father sat out front and gave bags of them away to anyone who walked by! LOL

Wishing everyone a wonderful, peaceful, love-filled holiday!

Actually, since my expectations were set pretty low, it exceeded my expectations! I love the way it feels on my lips and the way it smells. In fact, I liked it so much that I purchased another MAC lipstick a day or two later… =)

Merry Christmas to you, Christine and to the Temptalia family behind the scenes and to all who share their lives and love of beauty below.

No purchase this week but Santa was good to me.

Haul: None, though I plan on doing my christmas shopping for myself this weekend. I didn’t get a single present, not even from my husband, so I plan on picking a few things up for me.

Weekend plans: The same as every weekend, gaming on Saturday and shopping for food on Sunday. Christmas day so far has been me making a big breakfast, going to the dog park for two hours, and I’m about to make dinner. My husband has been playing the game he got for christmas most of the afternoon while I’ve been reading and listening to christmas music. On a makeup related note, I’ve found NARS Cruella doesn’t stand up to Anatolian Shepard spit. After being lovingly greeted by one, I walked around the dog park looking like Health Ledger’s Joker.

Green Thumb: I’m not the best at it but I have plants in my front yard I haven’t killed for two years. I’m not the worst either!

OMG! Seriously. My neighbor came over while I was doing the CEUs, to invite me to dinner. (Not..) and in his arms was his new baby black lab, Bella. Soft, sweet, sleepy, and soulful. Whatta huggable bundle of Xmas joy! Mellan channeled me a new neighbor. Thanks, boy. Happy Birthday. No haul, but was that Stila set a hit. Wed meant driving around delivering bundles of, you guessed it, cosmetics. Green thumb, hardly. And the yard service my landlord uses mows down all my outside efforts. I gave up. Inside, I have a gazillion offspring of this tiny spider plant, that I asked if I could pinch, in a restaurant in Portland (ME.). But I killed a cactus before I could even get it out of AZ. Good thing I’m better with dogs!

Aww, how cute was he as a puppy?! Still cute even now lol!

Haul: Just Xmas gifts – Maybelline Baby Lips set, Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream set, Nivea minis set, My Burberry perfume.

Plans for weekend: I’m at my parents’ with my fiancΓ© and little girl for the Xmas weekend. We have Boxing Day tomorrow, my fiancΓ© and I are going into town to have a bit of time together while my parents babysit.

Do I have green fingers? Nope, not by a long way!

I’m enjoying using my Anastasia Self Made palette, NARS Despair cheek palette and the cheek palette from Stila’s Send My Love set this Xmas holiday ?.

Haul: Christmas lipsticks! The kat von d vida loca set, stila everlasting love liquid lipstick set, and two bite colors (spiced apple and kir royale)
Plans: do laundry, pack, maybe see a movie
Green thumb: well, I’ve kept a plant alive in my dorm room for over a year but I’m terrible at keeping track of it and it’s definitely seen better days

Haul: I picked up the Vice 4 palette for just over 50% off with Sephora’s Sale on Sale deal, but other than that just some stuff I had previously gotten that I only let myself open up at Christmas.

Weekend plans: Try to get my cat to wear the bowtie my dad got me for him for Christmas. He’s going to HATE me.

Do you have a green thumb?: I always think I don’t, but that’s me comparing myself to my mum who could make a tree grow out of a stone, so I probably actually have a very green thumb. Though not so much with indoor plants. I’m more of a raised vegetable bed and fruit trees kind of girl.

Yeah it was pretty awesome. It was on offer at Sephora for I believe $39 and then there was a deal for an extra 20% off which made it cost $31.20 instead of the original $60 (and $1.56 per shadow instead of the original $3 a shadow). Being good at math really pays off sometimes.

Haul: Boscia Makeup Breakup cleansing oil, Sephora Collection Liquid Moisturizing Skin Concentrate (I’ve never used this before, but I am liking it already! It’s doing wonders for my pores – which I didn’t even buy it for – and it’s a great extra layer of hydration under my moisturizer). I also got a Sephora gift card for Christmas and I can’t wait to use it!

Weekend Plans: All of our celebrating was done today, and I’m due back at work tomorrow at 8AM! I’m seeing an old friend on Sunday, which should be nice. My dad is also beginning treatment for a medical issue tomorrow (I don’t want to say too much because he’s quite private, and the test results haven’t come back yet so we don’t actually know what it really is, but the doctors are cautiously optimistic and are treating it aggressively just in case) so I’ll be calling him a few times more than usual through the weekend.

Do you have a green thumb? No way! I can kill any plant you give to me. I killed a succulent in less than a week, and those are allegedly really hard to kill.

Happy birthday Mellan, and I hope you all had a good Christmas!

Haul: Colourpop gel liners (Swerve, Call Me, Stomper) and liquid lipsticks (Stingraye, Limbo); Kat von D Lolita; Formula X/KvD Piaf polish! And if Christmas presents count, Anastasia Ebony Dipbrow and KvD Piaf lipstick
Weekend plans: Going on vacation in the mountains for a few days, hooray for Colorado!
Do you have a green thumb? Not at all, I’m sad to say! I’d like to do gardening or at least keep a pet plant but I’m not very good at remembering to water so they wouldn’t last too long haha

Thanks, Kayle! We did πŸ™‚

How are you liking Stingraye? Have you noticed any differences in formula between Stingraye and Limbo?

I have, actually! Stingraye is a lot more comfortable than the permanent formula. It’s somewhere between the old formula and the formula from those 5 fall liquid lipsticks (Chilly Chili, More Better, etc.) Definitely less drying, but it still dries to a transfer-free finish.

The color is also beautiful! It looked super pink when I swatched it on my arm so I was a bit bummed but on my face it actually looks like the pretty mauve brown that was advertised. Basically, I love it.

Happy Birthday Mellan, you are so cute!
Haul nothing
Weekend, I plan to relax and do as little as possible.
Green thumb, maybe, at least my plants don’t die on me.

A bit late, I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas!

Happy Birthday Mellan!!!!!! So cute.
Haul: just ordered another Sigma E35 brush. It gets super fluffy with age and I realize I grab the thing everyday now so time to get another and start making it super fluffy too!
To Do: TAKE DOWN THE CHRISTMAS TREE…I cannot stand to have it up even a minute after Christmas. It just looks sad without presents!
Green Thumb: Egh….Sorta, I did kill my entire lawn once using a weed killer instead of a feeder spray! DOH! That was a $1500 mistake cause we had to sod the whole thing.
