Melt Cosmetics Burnish Gel Liner Review & Swatches

Burnish Melt Cosmetics Burnish Gel Liner ($19.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a rich burgundy with subtle, warm red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single stroke. It really was quite fluid and like a creamy-gel that enabled the product to spread out evenly over a larger area, so it also yielded opaque coverage as a cream eyeshadow. There was enough time before the product set into place to maneuver it a...

Does your skincare routine change for spring?

I haven’t found that I add or remove any type of products by season these days. I definitely haven’t made any moves to adjust my current skincare routine now that we’re officially in spring! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Kleiner Trost für Musikfans: Live-Konzerte & DJ-Sets, die du jetzt streamen kannst

Wenn du nicht zum Konzert gehen kannst, kommt das Konzert eben zu dir! Weil sie ihre Gigs wegen der Coronavirus-Pandemie absagen müssen, beschließen immer mehr Künstler*innen und Bands und DJs, virtuelle Konzerte zu geben. Manche nehmen an virtuellen Charity-Festivals wie dem HeimFest oder dem iHeart Living Room Concert teil, andere machen Insta-Storys aus dem Proberaum oder ihrem Wohnzimmer. Und einige versorgen uns sogar täglich (!) mit fresher Musik – wie Sofie Tukker – und stellen damit sich...

Gucci Marguerite Jade, The Painted Veil, Mildred Rosewood Sheer Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Marguerite Jade (110) Gucci Beauty Maguerite Jade (110) Sheer Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, caramel brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer color coverage, which enabled a lot of my natural lip color to come through; the end result looked redder than I’d expect based on the color it swatched, so it may look quite different depending on one’s natural lip color. The consistency was lightweight...

Are there any makeup products you wear more often during spring?

I don’t think so! I’m usually testing new products, so I definitely find that certain trends (e.g. dewy skin, glossier lips) tend to be more prevalent during springtime so I’ll end up wearing more of those types of products. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Milani Pink-aroo Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pink-aroo Milani Pink-aroo Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with flecks of pink-to-violet shifting shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer–it was far more pigmented than other shades in the line and more so than expected based on the formula’s claims–that could be applied with a lighter hand to get sheerer, more buildable coverage. The texture was ...

What do you like about Coral Lipstick? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Coral Lipstick Just likes for me! I find there is a huge assortment in depth and tone, so there are a lot of ways to wear it. It’s the type of color that brightens my face up most of the time, too! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

MAC Humblebrag, Samoa Silk, Libra, Nude Model, Left You on Red Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Humblebrag MAC Humblebrag Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light lavender with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of cooler pink micro-sparkle. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, and a little drier to the touch, so it was more prone to fallout and didn’t adhere as well to bare skin. I’d definitely recommend wearing this with a primer, which helped the product to go on more readily. It had medium coverage that was b...

The Best Hand Creams for Dry, Cracked Skin (2020)

I fully expect readers of Temptalia have all been washing hands thoroughly and about 400 times more often than ever before, and so if you, like me, are experiencing drier-than-usual hands, let me share with you my favorite hand creams. None of these are new favorites; these are ones I’ve had on hand (that was totally an unintentional pun) for years and return to. I am prone to eczema, especially if I let anything dry out too much (especially getting dry very quickly), so I definitely favor the ...

How do you rotate through your collection?

I don’t do a lot of rotation, but I try to go through my “go-tos” every six months or so and move anything out that I can’t recall thinking about at all–this is often propelled by wanting to put something new in and not having room! Otherwise, the way I use makeup doesn’t really lend... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Revlon Toasting Glasses, Chocolate Luster, Glistening Purple Melting Glass Shine Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Toasting Glasses (009) Revlon Toasting Glasses (009) Super Lustrous Melting Glass Shine Lipstick ($9.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, muted plum with warm, brownish undertones and a luminous finish–very faint pearl and lots of shine. The texture was smooth, creamy, and skated easily across my lips as the formula felt like it melted against the warmth of my lips. It looked more slippery than it felt, though it had moderate slip overall....

Milani Peach-ella Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter Review & Swatches

Peach-ella Milani Peach-ella Ludicrous Lights Duo Chrome Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.24 oz.) has more of a translucent base that’s packed full of iridescent pink and warmer pink shimmer and sparkle that gave it a shiny, glittering finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, which seemed in line with the formula’s claims. The texture was surprisingly smooth for as glittery as the finish was, though I could definitely tell it had som...

How do you store and organize your skincare?

I have larger plastic bins so I organize by function (moisturizer vs. treatment vs. cleanser) in the “archive” area, and for products that I’m expecting to use sooner, I have them in a repurposed shoe holder organized by function in my bedroom closet. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

The consistency felt lightweight with enough glide to apply fluidly but didn’t feel slippery while on. It stayed on nicely for four and a...

They were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, so for the right skin tone, it could be a winning pairing. Darling ...
