And… We’re Home!

Success — We’ve Finished Our Move!

The Temptalia Tech Team is quite pleased to announce if you’re seeing this post, then you’re with us on our new digs. Hope you find them super fast, sexy (we have hyperthreading… whatever that is, but it sounds SUPER sexy!), and all that and more.  Or at least faster. :)  We also have a failover server in place exclusively for when our main servers drop, so we’re hoping that you should not experience any downtime in the future.

OK, enough tech talk!  Bascally, we’ve completed the move, and we’ve been able to verify that everything is working correctly on our end.  It will take up to 72 hours for all readers to get pointed to the blog on the new server, but in the meanwhile, they will see the blog on the old server–and just no new posts.   Because of the time lag between old and new, inevitably we will lose some comments.  We’ve done everything we can do minimize this loss, so we hope you’ll understand and be patient — and just leave your comment again.

Becca Lurex Eyeshadow

Becca Lurex Eyeshadow

Earlier this week, I reviewed Becca Shantung Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.), and today, I have Becca Lurex Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) for you! Lurex is a tarnished gold–it doesn’t cast very green, so it’s very wearable as neutral without being “boring.” The texture is smooth, soft, and nicely pigmented, just like Shantung.  Becca’s eyeshadows seem to have an excellent texture with good color pay off, but they’re just on the small side given their price tag.

RECOMMENDATION: If you don’t think you’ll ever hit pan on your eyeshadows, the downfall of Becca’s Lurex likely won’t be an issue for you! It is a high quality eyeshadow in a beautiful shade of antique gold.

The Summer Season: Dolce & Gabbana Splendid Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana Splendid Lipstick ($30.00) is an opaque, medium pink that’s bright enough to attract attention to your pout, but not so bright it’s obnoxious.  This is a nice in-between pink that’s good for wearability in particular.  I love that it’s such a nice medium pink but still opaque.  It also has a glossy sheen without being shimmery.  All Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks are rose-scented, for the scent-wary.  I like it, but I’ve yet to run into a fragranced lipstick I don’t like.  I get four to five hours of wear with this lipstick formula, too, which is a bit above average.

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.
