Foundation Matrix & Comparisons

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! Best Wishes for 2010!

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!

Wait, Something’s Different!

Welcome our New Layout for 2010!

(This was posted last week, prior to Thanksgiving, but we’ve bumped it up for regular readers returning from the holidays.)

Long-time readers will know that we change-up our layout on a yearly basis, and this year is no different!  (Well, a little different–we’re a smidgen early!)  We took a lot of your feedback into consideration and tried to implement certain design elements and features that would best answer your needs!

We do have some additional tweaking of certain features and areas of the site, but it should be functioning fairly normally — so if you encounter any bugs (like, “OMG, where’d the page go?  The sidebar is missing!”), please, please let us know!  There’s one major feature that we’re still working on that’s not quite ready for launch and that’s an advanced search function.  Bear with us 🙂

Definitely let us know what you think of the new site, but let me walk you through some of the major changes

Happy Thanksgiving 2009!

Happy Thanksgiving!

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.
