We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

Becca Backlight Priming Filter. I know the company is going to be shutting up shop and I love this stuff. I was waiting for the VIB sale to get a backup and it just arrived yesterday and I’m really happy to have it. It seems that all my favourite “glowy” primer type products get discontinued (anyone else remember the Estee Edit Treat+Prime+Glow or whatever the lengthy name was? I’ve got two backups of that stuff, purchased really marked down, because it too was just so wonderful).

UD Brow Blade.
It’s not something I use every day, in fact I maybe use it once per week, but I love the super precise marker tip.

The last product I repurchased was an Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in the shade Perversion. It’s my favorite blacker-than-black eyeliner.

Picked up a b/u of Paula super light wrinkle defense. It cocktails well with any foundation product or is good stand alone for me, with slight blurring. Prob not good for darker skintones, and very little coverage. At the S sale, to give a prop for carrying Paula.

I love that SPF under makeup. Even as a light medium the tint doesn’t do for me on it’s own; I look kind of greyish, especially when applying the correct amount for sun protection.
I do wish they release it in more tint options, so multiple people can try it. I know people of darker complexions asked during some of Brian’s live chats on Youtube, but it doesn’t seem that’s on the works for the brand.

I believe that I repurchased these several items all at once: Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic & Retinol Eye Serum, Farmacy Green Defence Daily Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer and Jack Black Lip Balm. All great items for me!

Latest beauty related order was from Paula’s Choice, actually re-ordered three products I keep repurchasing on repeat: Un-scrub, Smooth Finish Conditioner and Daily Replenishing Body Cream.

Makeup wise I had a Prolongwear Concealer
and an Eye Brows Big Boost Fiber Gel in my last MAC order. I lost count how many times I repurchased the concealer, the brow gel is a second purchase.

I mean… most of my shopping is repurchased these days.

I think it’s that way for a lot of us. I know I’m not willing to risk cash on new things when I have no way of seeing for myself or trying/swatching so what I’ve purchased are mostly backup items also or a few things I’ve really wanted for a long time and which I’ve been able to check out quite well here at Temptalia.

I have purchased one new makeup item (Gucci Satin Lipstick in The Fallen Sparrow) without first seeing it reviewed here first in the last two years. (The formula is amazing btw, my favorite ever.)

I actually JUST did an Ulta order the other day of all repurchases lol! I got SheaMoisture raw shea butter lotion, Manic Panic amplified hair dye (a new color tho! going navy blue this time), Formula 10.0.6 cleansing oil, and Lano strawberry 101 ointment multi-balm.

Mac Pro Longwear Waterproof Nourishing Foundation in NC-17, when they had $10 off all foundations last week. It’s not perfect, but it doesn’t have cyclopentasiloxane (I’m allergic) and it gives a better, longer lasting finish under my mask than most of my other foundations. I wear it over Urban Decay’s All Nighter Primer to get the smoothest finish without excessive oiliness. I’ve also been taking selfies in natural light and, while the formula doesn’t do anything for textured skin, it does seem to be the best color match out of my foundations in general.

Paula’s Choice: Azelaic Acid Booster, BHA 9, and Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%. I will soon repurchase the Aveeno Calm + Restore Oat Gel Moisturizer.

Uoma Beauty Afro-Dis-Iac liquid eyeliner in Cleopatra Ink. I didn’t think I would replace it when it was gone because liquid eyeliner was a challenge for me but I missed it.

Isle of Paradise Self Tanning drops in Dark, Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel, Dr. Brandt Dark Spots No More Triple Acid Spot Minimizing Concentrate, Lancome Grandiose Extreme Wide-Angle Extreme Volume Mascara, Rita Hazan Ultimate Shine Gloss, Jo Malone Wood Sage And Sea Salt Cologne, The Original Makeup Eraser, Dermaflash Essentials Set.

The last product I repurchased was a slew of skincare products – CeraVe’s Hydrating cleanser and moisturising cream, Olay’s Daily Regenerist moisturising cream, A’kin’s Night Repleneshing Cream and some shampoos/conditioners by Redkin. All on sale.
