What do you like about Pat McGrath? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Pat McGrath The real rant is the price point — just really, really expensive. I like some of the smaller formats the brand has done in the last year or so, and I hope we see more of those. The brand has some exceptional formulas, and I love the color stories in most of their palettes. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Covergirl Summer 2021 arrives today with new Clean Fresh Creamy Eye Shadow Stick, Easy Breezy Brow All Day Brow Ink, Lash Blast Clean Waterproof Mascara and a new Trunaked Desert Heat Eyeshadow Palette. Yeah, so, I took one look at this collection and was like, “Weeee! A new Truenaked Eyeshadow Palette shade!” Not everyone loves the Trunaked Eyeshadow texture and formula but I adore it.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Instant Perfector 4-In-1 Glow Makeup for Summer 2021

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Instant Perfector 4-In-1 Glow Makeup ($12.99) is a new highlighter that has a 4-in-1 formula that acts to prime, concealer, and highlighter skin while it evens out your skin tone and provides light coverage. Sounds a lot like what Hourglass was attempting with Veil Retouching Fluid. I never get on board with these damn things! The whole we’ll prime, concealer, highlighter, and provide coverage to your skin makes me cringe! Typically, the formulas end up being a ...

Lethal Cosmetics Ionic Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches

Ionic Lethal Cosmetics Ionic Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a cooler, almost pinkish-sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smooth, moderately-dense consistency that wasn’t too firmly-pressed or too thick, so it picked up well with a brush and blended out beautifully on bare skin without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It wore nicely for eight ho...

Thank you!

Happy Sunday! I just wanted to say another thank you so much to everyone who has been so supportive of my Sydney Grace collaboration. As my personal way to celebrate, I’ve gone back to vivid hair color as an ode to the colors of the collaboration (hair done by Lauren Krech, I paid in full my service, but she does great work if you are in the Phoenix area). Thank you for reading Temptalia, whether you’re new or long-time, because without your readership, the collaborat...

The finish was glowing and softly shimmery but d...

Do you prefer eyeshadow singles or pre-made palettes?

I really do love both and see a place for both in my routine/collection, but I definitely reach for pre-made palettes more often if I am returning to something… probably out of ease. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

4 Surprising Benefits To Using a Skin Loofah

Loofahs also known as luffas are mostly used to clean the body and other surfaces. They come in a variety from “all-natural” loofahs made from a gourd grown in tropical and subtropical climates in the cucumber family to artificial types. You can either grow these plants domestically or import them from nearly any warmer climate.  The plant blooms and flower blossoms, developing into a long, gourdlike plant similar to that of a giant cucumber or zucchini. They can later be harvested, pee...

How do eyeshadow singles fit into your routine?

I keep my singles by brand, so it tends to me if I want to do a particular set of colors and don’t want to open a bunch of pre-made palettes, then I’ll go to brand xyz and pick and choose what I need. I don’t spend a lot of time with singles unless I am testing new ones, though. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
