Too Faced Boudoir Beauty Collection for Spring 2013

Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush ($29.00)

Blush is like dessert, you didn’t know you loved it until you had a taste of it. Our blush was developed with easy application and a no-fail color palette in mind—to take the guesswork out of creating a sweet, romantic flush. With three perfect swatches, you can just swirl the colors together and apply, or use more of one shade for a custom flush or highlight.

Boudoir Eyes Shadow Collection ($36.00)

Our new collection of eye shadows creates looks for the bedroom and beyond. Along with four Boudoir-worthy colors, we added five new shades just for this palette for a total of nine soft and sexy colors. Includes: In the Buff, Satin Sheets, Birthday Suit, Fuzzy Handcuffs, Sugar Walls, lap Dance, Voulez-Vous, Garter Belt, and French Tickler.

The Secret to No Makeup Makeup Fresh & Flawless Face Palette ($39.00)

Our new multitasking face palette is your answer to creating the illusion of flawlessness. The collection is dedicated to complexion perfection, for a flawless, “I was born perfect” look any time of the day. The kit has everything you need to create a complete look so it’s great for traveling (or sleepovers.)

Nude & Champagne Eyeliners: Swatches, Dupes, and Comparisons

Nude Eyeliners
Nude & Champagne Eyeliners

Nude & Champagne Eyeliners: Your Guide

Two years ago, I went through and swatched every eyeliner I owned by color, so that they could easily be compared.  It’s time for a re-do, because we have so many more shades to add to our comparisons!  Our first part of this on-going series is a comparison of the various nude and champagne eyeliners I have on hand.  This shade is typically used on the lower lash line or water line to help brighten and open up eyes.

  1. BAREMINERALS 5AM is a pewter–it’s a dirty, cool-toned gold with a silvered sheen. I didn’t expect it to be similar to anything here, but it didn’t fit well with golds either.
  2. MAC GILDED WHITE is a warm white gold with a metallic sheen. (LE)
  3. MAC NC15/NW20 is a light beige/fleshy shade. It is a hair darker than NARS Rue Bonaparte.
  4. MAC NW25/NC30 is a darker version of NW15/NC20. Almost looks like a darkened peach.  It is very similar to Givenchy #2.
  5. MAC NC42/NW35 is darker version of NW25/NC30. It looks a bit peachy/orange on me.
  6. GIVENCHY #2 is a warm, peachy beige with yellow-beige undertones and a mostly matte finish. It is comparable to MAC NW25/NC30.
  7. NARS RUE BONAPARTE is a soft beige with a matte finish. It is just barely lighter than MAC NC15/NW20.
  8. MAC I GET NO KICK is a soft champagne nude with a metallic sheen. (LE) It is ever-so-slightly warmer than MUFE #23L but very comparable to UD Midnight Cowboy.
  9. MAKE UP FOR EVER #23L is a shimmering golden champagne with a nearly metallic finish. This shade is slightly less warm compared to MAC I Get No Kick and UD Midnight Cowboy.
  10. URBAN DECAY MIDNIGHT COWBOY is a shimmering champagne peach with a subtle metallic sheen. (LE) This is most comparable to MAC I Get No Kick.  An alternative to this shade would be Urban Decay’s Shadow Pencil of the same name.

TEMPTALIA PICKS:  #1 (high quality), #3-6 (good formula), #9 (versatile, readily available)

Behind-the-Series:  These swatches should not be used to judge the quality of an eyeliner.  Some eyeliners required one pass, some required five, and a few even more.  It was my intention to provide heavy, opaque swatches to provide an accurate color comparison.  When possible, the shade name (above) is linked to the original review.  If we’ve never done a review, there will be no link.  Shades that were limited edition will be marked with “(LE)” and shades that were discontinued will be marked with “(DC)” after the color description.  You can also find all comparisons on The Dupe List.

2013 Readers’ Choice Awards – Nominations


2013 Readers’ Choice Awards – Nominations

NOMINATIONS ARE OPENStarting today, you can nominate your favorite brands and products for our annual Readers’ Choice Awards here.  These awards are 100% decided by readers, as readers honor and recognize the best beauty brands and products.  The nomination process allows readers to write-in their favorites, and the top 10-15 in each category move to the short list.  I can’t emphasize how important it is to send in your nominations, because often the difference between making the short list and not is a handful of votes.  You may nominate for as many or as few categories as you feel comfortable with but you can only make one nomination per category. 🙂  

Nominations will be collected through December 26th, 2012.  Voting will open on December 29th, 2012 (approximately).  You can check out last year’s winners here.
