2016 Readers’ Choice Awards: Nominate Your Favorites Now!

It’s that time of the year again! It’s time to nominate your favorite products and brands from 2015 as well as your all-time favorite formulas. We have tried to make it easier for readers as well as on our end when it comes to compiling nominees. You can start typing your favorite brand or product, and it will suggest what you’re looking for using our product database (57,000 products), but as always, you can write-in your favorites as well. All of the nominations will be compiled and the top 10-15 (depending on how many ties there are) will make the voting ballot. You do not have to nominate for every category; fill in as many categories as you wish to participate in.

  • Nominations: December 17th, 2015 through December 28th, 2015 10AM PST.
  • Voting: January 4th, 2016 through January 11th, 2016 10AM PST.
  • Results: January 20th, 2016

This is our first year doing it this way, so if you encounter any issues, please email nick[at]temptalia.com. Thank you!

Sneak Peek: MAC Nordstrom’s Finest Eyeshadow Palette Photos & Swatches

MAC Nordstrom's Finest Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Nordstrom’s Finest Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Nordstrom’s Finest Eyeshadow Palette ($85.00 for 0.68 oz.) includes fifteen eyeshadows, with each being full-sized (the palette is the same size as the empty 15-pan palettes MAC sells). The palette contains an assortment of permanent shades as well as limited edition/exclusive shades, though some of the shades in this palette that may seem new were released in the Gravitas palette, which was limited edition (Soft Brown, Luscious, Carbon, Persuade, Plummed are repeats). I believe only Chains of Love and Felt haven’t been released before (based on my log of MAC eyeshadows). Full review soon(ish)!
