Pops of Color with Anastasia's Summer 2017 Collection

About this Look

I’m testing out several of Anastasia’s products from their summer collection!  I also thought it would be fun to share how a very cool vs. less cool pink blush would work with this type of look.  I’m warmer-toned, so I tend to think something warmer would work a little better but the coolness of the aqua/purple in the look made me consider a cooler pink as well.  If I did it all over again, though, I’d opt for something peachy (needed to test these two shades next but for cohesiveness, still personally prefer a peach blush with these colors!).

Housekeeping & Minor Updates (May 2017)


Discord | Our chatroom

Discord — Let’s Chat!

First, I started a Discord for Temptalia, which is a real-time chatroom for readers to get to know each other, talk beauty, ask questions, and interact with the community (I’m there, too!). If you’ve used Skype chat before, you’ll easily get the hang of Discord, if you haven’t tried it before! You can chat using Discord through your web browser, as a desktop application (that you install), and/or on your mobile phone–it’s totally free.  (We’re not being paid to use, mention, or promote Discord.)

It’s a tool that is more popular in the gaming niche, but I thought it might be a great way to interact more closely with each other and work just as well in beauty! Learn more about Discord or download the app here. You can join Temptalia’s Discord here  It’s been great getting a chance to interact with readers already, so I hope to see you there!

Swatch Gallery

We have revamped “By Formula” to be “By Product.” The search is much more free-for-all, so you can find a swatch for a single product (like MAC Ruby Woo), all swatches from a formula (like MAC Lipstick), or swatches for a single palette (like Anastasia Modern Renaissance).

Expanded User Profiles


Save your foundation shades to your profile!

If you’re a registered user (and if you’re not, join our community!), we have extended the information you can save to your profile in three ways (all optional). You can update your information by going to your user menu and selecting “profile.”

  • Social media: in addition to linking to your blog and YouTube channel, you can also add your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr channels
  • Save your foundations: add your shade matches directly on your profile, where they get saved (and pre-loaded into the Matrix, though you can always remove/change them on the fly)
  • Save your favorite brands: add your favorite brands to your profile — we hope to offer future customization/personalization of your experience, so knowing the brands you’re most interested in helps us a lot!

Sneak Peek: Anastasia Summer 2017 Collection Photos & Swatches (Eyes & Lips)

Anastasia Summer 2017 Collection
Anastasia Summer 2017 Collection

Anastasia Summer 2017 Collection includes 10 Lip Glosses (seven are rereleases), 12 eyeshadows (a few are rereleases), and five blush trios. The swatches for the blushes are in a separate post here. The new products will be available online on June 13th and in-stores on June 23rd for retailers (but are available now through Anastasia directly). I didn’t purchase Caramel as it was out of stock when I made my order — but it was previously re-released and have a review of it from then already published.

Last I asked, ABH customer service did not know whether these shades were permanent or limited edition, but based on past releases and that these are released as singles (including several rereleases), it seems more likely that they are permanent. If any end up being limited edition, I’ll be sure to make that change.
