Do you give or receive a lot of beauty-related gifts?

I don’t receive them, since the last thing I need are MORE beauty products. I always gift my grandmother Chanel No. 5 products, like body wash or soap. My mom, who isn’t into beauty and would never, ever spend the money on it herself, I get her La Mer Moisturizer because she really loves it (and... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What product turned out to be an unexpected workhorse for you?

Fenty Beauty Afternoon Snack/Mo’ Hunny duo! I ended up using that quite frequently — it has just the right depth of color, finish, and undertone to give me some oomph to my cheeks without adding a lot of contrasting color. It wasn’t the type of color that I thought I’d reach for often but go... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What was the last product you purchased more for packaging/theme than the product?

I can’t recall! I am not much of a packaging person – I am always more interested in the contents! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Has a pet ever destroyed any products?

Thankfully, no! I don’t recall Mellan doing so (he was pretty good about those things!), and we gated Winnie from being able to access areas that had a lot of makeup in more accessible places. So far… so good with Winnie! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What do you like about cream eyeshadows? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Cream Eyeshadows They seem really fantastic for one-and-done looks, which I don’t really do (lover of Multi-Shade Looks that I am). I love more cream-to-powder formulas as they work well for multi-shade looks, though, and sometimes, you can get a more intense sparkle or metallic finish from a cream than a powder. Not a fan of ones that dry down so much that they can be prone to flaking off! — Christine ...

Do you have a signature scent?

If I did, it’d probably be Tom Ford Oud Wood, but I definitely don’t wear any scent consistently enough for anyone to actually associate it with me. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you select what fragrance to wear?

In our closet, we have some small shelves that I’ve put various fragrances on–maybe a dozen or so–and then I swap them out every so often. There’s no real rhyme or reason on how I pick one over the other, though, just that I like the scent. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What type of formula do you prefer for a fragrance? (Parfum, Toilette, etc.)

Eau de Parfum for me! I find it gives me the level of intensity and longevity I prefer. Like if I put on perfume, I want to put on perfume. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What kind of notes are you drawn to in a fragrance?

I like woodier, spicier scents for sure, and I tend to like a little vanilla in the dry down to add some sweetness. Floral tends to tickle my nose in a bad way. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Do you leave reviews for products you've tried?

NO, NEVER!! Obviously, I write reviews for Temptalia. I very seldom leave reviews on retailer sites, though, but you know, I’m kind of dedicated to reviewing here so doing more seems unreasonable! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What are your favorite types of holiday releases?

I love travel-sized sets of products that already last awhile, like blush, single eyeshadows, etc. I also love the influx in shimmer/sparkle! I also like when luxury-priced brands release more “affordable” options during the holiday season. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What do you like about lipgloss? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Lipgloss I love how shiny they are on the lips and how they can often smooth/add the illusion of volume. The downside is that a lot of formulas can settle into lip lines or not last that long. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
Tags: Beauty, Christine, Weekly Features, Lipgloss, Rant And Rave


What are your least favorite types of holiday releases?

I’m not a fan of most mega-palettes that get launched–they often feel like they don’t receive as much planning/effort as other launches, so they often under-perform as a result. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What would you love to see this holiday season?

I’d love to see more red lipstick with shimmer! I don’t know why shimmery red lipsticks aren’t more forthcoming during the holiday season. I really hope for a Celestial Divinity II (or similar) from Pat McGrath. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What helps you determine if a review is trustworthy?

If I’m looking at reviews on a retailer, I look for longer reviews that are more in-depth and detailed – usually not using exaggerations when describing product performance. If it’s more of an individual person, then I like to go back to reviews of products I have tried in the past, which... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Do you reach for different colors during autumn?

Nope, not personally, though the nature of wearing newly-released products means that I tend to wear whatever brands have deemed trendy at the moment. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What do you like about shimmery lipstick? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Shimmery Lipstick I find that frosted/metallic shimmer tends to emphasize my lip lines and can be harder to wear without a gloss on top. I love some pearl, though, typically with a more luminous finish. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
Tags: Beauty, Christine, Weekly Features, Rant And Rave, Shimmery Lipstick


What do you look for in a cheek color review?

I want to know if it was applied on bare skin or foundation, and if it was reactive when applied on top of any base/bare skin. I like understanding how buildable/easily buildable the formula is because I don’t love super-pigmented blush/bronzer that has to be gingerly used. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
