Let’s Work Together: Foundation Matrix
Throughout the years I’ve both toyed with and gotten requests to work on a matrix of what foundation is the equivalent of what foundation. Today’s foundation post only reinforced our need, as a beauty lovin’ community, for such thing. Of course, I am only but an expert on my own shade and the foundations I’ve tried–you can help by contributing your own shade finds (or lack thereof!).
Spreadsheet’s back up for editing!
If we work together, I think we can really get something incredibly resourceful going — and hopefully helpful to all of us in the end. I hope you’ll contribute however you can — there’s a cool and warm sheet as part of the document, so make sure you’re on the right one! If you have questions, feel free to ask. Thank you in advance
What to do if…
- The brand/formula isn’t on the list? Add it! Go ahead, add it Don’t worry about formatting or the like – I’ll fix up formatting as I see it needs to be and do a major clean-up at the end.
- If you didn’t find a match in the brand? Type in “no match” or “none.”
- You can do high end or drugstore or whatever. Just add it if it isn’t there.
- If someone put something in, but you’re different! Just add yours, too — put a comma or something to signal that there are two options.
Head on over to our Google Spreadsheet and fill-in your foundation shades.
Happy New Year!
It’s New Year’s Eve, so it’s a time for a little self-reflection, gathering with friends and family, and maybe even some fun–if we’re lucky!
It’s been a fantastic year here at Temptalia HQ, as is every year, really. I feel so blessed with all of the success of Temptalia, and I really cannot thank you all, my dearest readers and friends, for all of your ongoing comments, feedback, participation, questions, suggestions, but most of all… your continuous support. It is such a joy to be able to chat with you about the latest and greatest (and the not-so-greatest) beauty products. I look forward to the year ahead of us and have high hopes for an even better year–and I hope we’ll all enjoy the ride.
Thank you for being part of the Temptalia community and making it the most satisfying community, hobby, and project I’ve ever had the pleasure to experience!
I would like to wish you and your family, friends, and pets (!) the very best in 2010!
I hope everyone has a fun and hearty Thanksgiving (of course, to those that celebrate). My family celebrates Thanksgiving as a time for the family to come together, eat until we’re rolling around from being so stuffed, and appreciating those in our lives. I’m all about stuffing smothered with gravy myself… It’s one of my favorite holidays (I love me some food!), and I thought it’d be the perfect occasion to thank all of you!
Thank you all so much for your kindness, loyalty, support, and feedback throughout the year! I feel so blessed and humbled to be able to bring you Temptalia everyday and that we can be a part of each other’s lives.
Celebrate with us as we reach 200,000 comments!
Just eight months ago, on March 21st, 2009, we celebrate reaching 100,000 comments. Sometime today, we’ll reach the crazy-insane mark of 200,000 comments. It’s amazing how the time flies, and thank you all so much for your comments, feedback, questions, and suggestions. Your participation is such a vital necessity to this blog and making it a success!
So congratulations to all of you, for making 200,000 a possibility!
What information, products, etc. would you like to see me cover for Spring 2010?
As always, I’m most interested in how I can better serve and help you, so before I start preparing for what kind of content to earmark for the spring season (yes, I do mean spring). I’d love to get your input on any particular products you really would love me to review, whether you want full reviews of certain spring launches, or if there’s some issue or concern you have that you’d love to see covered come January.
Here are some plans I can share with you now…
- The Spring Season: Soft, light, pastel lips – nudes, beiges, pinks
- Spring Collection Reviews — don’t have any specifics penned down yet, but definitely some of the usual suspects; I’d love to hear if you’re interested in full reviews OR just reviews of standout products (e.g. a palette) OR nothing at all? (This doesn’t apply to MAC — I will and always will review MAC Collections in their entirety.
I don’t make any promises to be able to fulfill everyone’s request, but when possible, I certainly will make every effort to do such. Please note that I test very, very limited skincare (both for the sanity of my skin as well as the fact that skincare takes so long to review, so I am extremely selective)–but I definitely welcome your suggestions, I just wanted to be transparent about the process and all that I only have one face! (As my mom would say, “You only have two eyes, why do you need 200 eyeshadows?”)
I appreciate your feedback TREMENDOUSLY. I cannot stress enough how valuable and vital your feedback and suggestions are–they help me direct content and do the things and write about the products you are interested in, that help you, and help me serve you best.
