This is probably one of my favorite looks that I’ve ever done. MAC’s C-Shock Collection was also likely one of my favorite launches, too. For those unfamiliar with the collection, it consisted of all the usual candidates, but the eyeshadows were the stars. They were bright, pigmented, smooth, and just right. From bright yellow to purple to green. While MAC doesn’t seem bent on repromoting it any time soon, MAC PRO did release extremely similar permanent (but PRO only) shadows. They’re just as good, so if you’re jonesin’ for brights, be sure to check those out. But boy, these photos make me really miss my long hair. It’s currently in that “I grew out really fast, but now I’m slow growing” stage.

Used:

I used Golden Lemon pigment on lid, Goin’ Bananas eyeshadow on inner lid, Eyepopping eyeshadow on middle of lid, Wondergrass eyeshadow on outer lid, Big T eyeshadow on outer lid, Bang On Blue eyeshadow in outer crease, Eyepopping eyeshadow above crease, White Tie eyeshadow on brow, Bang On Blue eyeshadow on outer lower lash line, Wondergrass eyeshadow on inner lower lash line, and Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line. I wore Margin blush with Taupe blush to contour on cheeks. I had Overrich lipstick with Lil’ Sizzler lip gelee on my lips.

Bronze Hero

MAC Style Warriors Sneak Peek

You know as soon as I get word of anything new, I’m totally passing it on–so here are a few product photos, swatches, and lip swatches from three items from Style Warriors. It also looks like Style Warriors is having some unveiling parties as early as May 5th, and my store told me it launches on May 21st. The original release date for this collection is/was May 28th. I definitely suggest calling your local store in a week or two if you want to make sure you don’t miss the launch date. (I’m going to be doing the same!)

Not sure what Style Warriors is?

The Goods…

  • Purple Rite is a plummy-pink. Despite looking quite daunting in the tube, it’s really sheer and not nearly as deep as it looks. I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out! My says it is a lustre finish, and it does feel like one, but I can’t promise it is.
  • Tribalist is an opaque, deep reddish berry brown. It’s not super opaque, but it gets pretty pigmented with a few layers. This is definitely a color I suggest using both a lip liner and a lip brush to apply, so you can get the perfect application. I don’t know the finish of this lipstick yet, sorry!
  • Bronze Hero is a peachy shade with a little bit of orange and lots of gold shimmer in it. The texture reminds me of a thinner glimmershimmer. The packaging is interesting, because they’re like the puff paints found in craft stores. There’s a very thin “tube” that you squeeze product out of, rather than the glimmershimmers which came in glass packaging and used a pump to disperse the product. When initially squeezed out, the color comes out strong (so a little will do you), but sheering it out gives just a little bit of shimmery glow. I do feel this product is better for body than face, but I think you can still use on the face, too. Just easier to add it to your favorite lotion ;)

Happy weekend, all!

I just wanted to let you all know what’s been happening with Temptalia for the past 24 hours. We experienced intermittent downtime from 7AM PST and onwards until approximately 6PM PST. We started the process of transferring to a new server around 2PM PST. We migrated the Temptalia.com domain beginning around 10PM PST. The propagation of the domain name can take anywhere from minutes to 72 hours. We hope this new server will better be able to accommodate us as well as make your experience viewing Temptalia faster/more reliable.

If you can see this post, it probably means the domain has propagated for you. You should be able to view posts, leave comments, etc. and the site should run normally. If you see this post, it means all went well and Temptalia is back for your viewing pleasure! :)

But if you could do me a favor, I would appreciate it! If you can see this post, leave me a comment and let me know. I’d like to see just how fast things are getting up for everyone.

Thank you for understanding!

Best,
Christine

HUGE thanks to Ryan Yockey for giving us some superb support as we got our new server up and running! :)
