Temptalia Asks You

What part of your face do you neglect the most? Do you tend to always go for the focus on the eyes and never switch up the lips? Or do you give everything fair coverage?

Temptalia's Answer.

I still tend to concentrate more on the eyes than lips, at least in the sense that I don’t do bold lips that often. I think on the whole I tend not to because I do feel a bit awkward wearing such bold lip colors when all I’m doing is going to school!

Wouldn’t it be just fantastic if you could always pop open a file and search for X product? You could find out information like when it came out, what was its official description, the finish… even what dupes there are. For example, maybe you missed out on Femme-fi, but maybe you have one of the dupes that can satisfy you.Enter in Temptalia’s latest project: MAC Database. We have done the majority of the legwork in terms of compiling collection information, products, and product data. There is only one part that we would like to work together on with all of you: the dupe section!Because it is such a huge undertaking, we think putting all of our heads together would result in the most comprehensive and useful results. We want these to be major resources for everyone!How To Help

1. Download the Eye Product spreadsheet.2. Think about what eye products are similar to others. More than one can be listed, and both permanent and limited edition shades can and should be listed!3. Either fill in the dupes you’d like to submit into the spreadsheet, or send us a list. Attach your filled-in spreadsheet or paste your dupe list into an e-mail.4. Send your contributions to [email protected].

As dupes are suggested, we will add them to our Master Worksheet, and we will constantly be re-uploading as we move towards our end goal! :) And yes, we have worksheets coming for other MAC products–we’re just starting with eye products first.P.S. – Did we make a mistake? If you spot an inaccuracy, please let us know so we can fix it! Know a piece of missing information (like a finish), let us know that, too!

How do you justify a beauty product’s price? Are there certain prices you’ll pay? Certain prices you won’t?

Temptalia's Answer.

I buy what inspires me, in a sense. If there’s a beauty product that really excites me, I’ll probably buy it. Sometimes if it’s very pricey, I’ll think on it and see if I still want it in a few days. If I do, then I’ll buy it.
