  1. yes, I’m part of the beauty blog knows as Cosmetosaur! I didn’t think blogging would be as fun as it is 😀

  2. Dana

    I sort of do. My regular LJ is host to a special filter for people who are interested in beauty, and I post frequently to it with my reviews and photos and stuff. I really enjoy it but I don’t have the time to do a “real” beauty blog!

  3. Yep yep. I own The Gloss Menagerie, :) It’s been up for year + some months. It’s such a blast!

  4. i youtube…. it’s the only thing i have time for but it’s really fun because i do looks and tutorials and i meet all these fun new people

  5. It’s not really a beauty blog. It’s more of a random rambling blog.
    Which includes some beauty stuff.
    I actually just started it a couple months ago.

  6. Nathalie

    I thought making one to post swatches and make reviews, but I don’t see on what I’d be useful. I’m afraid I’m not buying enough make up to keep anyone interested so I prefer to abstain.

  7. Crystal

    I’m actually an intern! For The Daily Cookie!!!

  8. HoneyBrown1976

    Nope. I don’t have the time, money, or energy. I’m just an observer!

  9. yep, I have a beauty blog in The Netherlands!!! It’s really fun and started to become a source of information for all beauty lovers in The Netherlands! I’m really working very hard at it, I takes me several hours per day, but I love it,especially the reviewing part! Oh and going to press events and party’s is a nice advantage too!

    I do hope to become the Temptalia of The Netherlands! 😉

  10. Sort of. My blog DOES have beauty-related posts in it, but it’s more of a photojournal of my life:

    * parties
    * boy drama
    * alcohol & drug-use
    * shopping hauls
    * fashion posts
    * beauty posts
    * video blogs

    It’s so random.
    But it has a fairly stable following right now — and a lot of my readers have ended up becoming close friends of mine. :)

  11. I have Beauty411…but when I want MAC tips and techniques for my own inspiration, I come here! You’re the best! :)

  12. I do! it’s mainly based on products that are readily available in the UK and I’m running a contest at the moment!

  13. Yes I do…I started it with the lovely Vanessa of Casual Lasvish
    and now I’m running it on my own. And what started out as just a little blog with some color story info here and there turned out to be a resourceful information site on all MAC color stories from 2000 to present along with some pics, swatches, face charts and many more.

    Actually, I just added an almost complete MAC ingredients list! :)

  14. Not yet, but I’ve considered it — just a very casual one for myself and my finds/obsessions. However, considering I run a business full-time, I’m not sure if I’d be able to handle it!. :)

  15. Lipstickrules

    I just started blogging myself ( it’s more my ramblings about beauty, life etc. Your site is the definitive beauty source for me! You’ve been very inspiring :-)

  20. Yep! it’s not as nice as this one, but it’s just a fun thing for me to do.

  21. Miss_M

    Nope, it already takes a couple of hours a day to read all those other blogs and forums on the net, so I simply wouldn’t have the time to do my own blog as well.

  22. no beauty blog… just a food blog!

  23. Yay!!
    And I will like yu to visit it!

  28. yes…i have a blog. I consider it more of a diary…where i love to write about makeup n stuff…i also like adding MAC face charts…so in future i don’t have to hunt for them…:)
    I would really love if you ever drop by and if possible just drop a simple comment..:)

  29. Yup, if you click on my user name above it will take you to it :) I am currently sitting a few exams so haven’t had time to update it recently though! x

  30. Yep! I don’t post a lot, because mostly my posts are FOTD’s and personal product reviews. But I really love giving my opinion on products… share the joy! 😀

  31. heather

    i want to make one but getting traffic/loyal readers is hard

  32. Yup! Only started a few months ago, but it’s a lot of fun. I mostly post FOTDs and reviews.

  33. He he. I sure do. I’m Crisania from My Endless Beauty Trunk. I got inspired by the lovely Muse. She is so awesome. I started my blog as a way to keep up with new ingredients and top products and now I post about everything I come across that’s interesting in the beauty world. I want to be more organized but for now I like posting swatches and reviews. It’s a ton of fun.

  34. Liz

    I have a “hobby blog” on LJ (, which I started mainly to filter all my pix and beauty content off of my regular journal. :) It’s been fun!

  35. I have a beauty and style website, and I’m constantly inspired by all the great beauty blogs around the web, like this one!

  36. Yep!

    I started last August I think? lol. I like to post swatches, do reviews on products I have tried, post some of my looks w/product breakdown and do tutorials!

    That blog is my therapy, love to write it and to meet many other wonderful ladies through it. =)

  37. I guess so, 99% of my blog is dedicated to beauty related stuff! Mainly reviews, hauls, swatches, etc. It’s fun, I love it!

  38. sej

    I just started one a couple weeks ago to express my obsession with makeup and beauty products. It’s called Kajal Couture.

  39. I have although I am terrible at keepup with it lately…

  40. I started blogging a little more than a year ago and had no idea that it would grow into what it is today. I’m still very excited about my blog! Thanks for being one of my guides :)

  41. Yup I own

  42. Blogging is so much fun and you get to meet a lot of people like you. :] Check out mine or just click on my name! Thanks!

  43. It’s partly a beauty blog. I blog about just random stuff in my life and beauty happens to play a big part of my life :)

  44. oh yes i do and it would make my day if you guys could stop by!


  45. Rae

    Absolutely! I run theNotice – but it by no way even begins to come close to the splendour or Temptalia 😛

    It’s only been a year and a half, but I know all my fellow bloggers will agree that online… that’s a lifetime!

  46. Yes I update on a daily basis and my blog is a pure beauty blog (in Swedish but with a translation gadget):

  47. Mikki

    Keep on the good job, Ladies!

  49. I wrote here last night but my message is not here today.. ??

    I’ll write again; yes, I have a blog. It’s a Turkish beuaty blog..

  50. I haven’t been blogging very long, but so far I’m having a good time and it gives me a chance to talk about all the product that I’m interested in.

  51. Emm

    Honestly I would have one but a) I don’t have time. b) I don’t think anyone cares enough c) I am not that good. d)Most days I am a minimalist when it comes to beauty.

  52. Yea, and mine is The Makeup Blogette (if you click on my name which is the site link) , I have been beauty blogging for a couple of years, lately it is getting more ‘focused’ and enjoying a steady following. :)

    that’s where I do all my makeup rambling!

  53. Yeah check it out ; )
    I just started it, not much but it’s fun.

  54. hi christine, i have a beautyblog, but it’s supposed to be a mix of stuff that i’m interested in. anyway, since i’m fascinated to makeup all the time, it’s turning out to be a beauty blog although i’d rather broaden my topics a little bit.

  55. I do. It’s attached to my business.

  56. I had one – Beyond Bath and But the files became corrupted and I was locked out of my own site! So now I own this domain, and have no clue what to do with it.

  57. Caroline

    yep :) makeupbycaroline.

  58. just started one!

  59. Yes. Only been beauty blogging for 3 months now and I LOVE it.

  60. Jen

    Yes I do! Most of my readers are Asians since I am Asian myself but I welcome all readers. I really enjoy it since I love makeup and I also write about fashion, hair, and nails. ^^
