Temptalia Swatch Gallery – Beta Release

Temptalia Swatch Gallery – Beta Release

Late last night, we officially launched a beta of our swatch gallery!  The idea around the gallery is inspired by something I’ve personally longed for:  a way to easily find dupes for you!  Some kind of archive or catalog that I can easily reference and look through for comparable colors when new releases come out.

With that in mind, the gallery actually allows you to drag and move the photos around, so you can make your own side-by-side comparisons.  If you’re interested in more photos of the product or want to see the review, simply click on the image and you’ll be taken to the original post the image appeared in.

Right now, we only have swatches for comparison of nail polishes, but we will steadily be adding additional product categories, such as lips, eyes, and cheeks.  There are still a couple of features and things to add, too.  I hope this will help you as much as I know it will help me!
