I’m really MORE curious to know what kind of quantity was there/not there.   Sometimes we wonder just how many of something (e.g. Marine Life, Stereo Rose) were actually in stock, because it feels like it’s not many – but it’s hard to capture just how large the MAC audience is.  I think this might be a good chance for us to have some data to extrapolate and guess at it.

Based on the current poll results, it’s obvious there wasn’t enough stock, and perhaps around 1,000 in total.  I think that since it soft launched the night before that mostly those who have played the LE game before and who were waiting for an announcement probably snagged those, and then a mixture of MAC’s mailing list and Temptalia readers when it officially launched on the 21st.  We must also recognize that this is only a sample, more of a snapshot, as not everyone who bought (or didn’t) will participate in the poll.

Like I’ve said before, it doesn’t bother me one bit if you didn’t want to buy it! One reader said that a Canadian customer service representative said “hundreds” of orders went through. Definitely feels like the stock set aside for Canada was underestimated quite a bit! (And for those who wonder, “Why 4+?” I know that many readers were doing CPs for others!)  I don’t know if MAC will restock or bring it back someday – your guess is as good as mine.

Feel free to elaborate on your answer in the comment section! 🙂

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #341, 354, 327, 342, 360, 357 (Browns)


Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #3

This next look at Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) revolves around some of their warmer brown shades.

  • 341 is a soft peach-beige with a matte finish.
  • 354 is a really pale white-peach with a matte finish. It was a little on the powdery side.
  • 327 is a warmer, medium-dark brown with subtle yellow undertones and a matte finish.
  • 342 is a dusty taupe-brown with subtle warmth and a matte finish. This is a really good shade for the crease.
  • 360 is a dusty, grayed taupe brown with a matte finish.
  • 357 is a warm medium brown with a matte finish.

Overall, this was another good batch of mattes from Inglot; smooth, easy to work with, and nice color payoff.  #354 had a powdery texture compared to the other five, but it wasn’t too bad, and it was surprising how it did not look chalky on me despite its pale color and matte finish.

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #329, 378, 326, 363, 358, 344 (Browns & Neutrals)


Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #3

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #329, 378, 326, 363, 358 (Browns & Neutrals)

This next look at Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) is all about some neutrals–these were cooler browns and slightly odd shades that seemed to belong more to neutrals than a particular color.

  • 329 is a chocolate brown with a matte finish. It’s not warm, more of a neutral brown.
  • 378 is a dark, cool-toned brown with a hint of burgundy. It has a matte finish.
  • 326 is a dark, cool-toned brown with an even subtler hint of burgundy than #378. It also has a matte finish. Both #378 and #326 are extremely similar, and it is hard to distinguish which is which.
  • 363 is a taupe brown with a matte finish.
  • 358 is a subdued mauve-gray with a matte finish. This just seemed so neutral when I was arranging the palettes, but it swatches rather purple.
  • 344 is a pink-plum brown with a matte finish.  It’s totally the definition of a neutral, though – soft, natural.

Overall, these are true to Inglot’s matte formula and are easy to work with. I had a touch of sheerness with #378, but the other four had nice color payoffs and smooth applications.

Need More Temptalia?

  • Tumblr: I love to post quick images of products I’m reviewing, testing, or launch promos. Based on a poll of Facebook fans and Twitter followers, it is a mix of more personal things and beauty, but it is still largely more beauty-oriented!
  • Facebook: Keep up with all of the latest posts on Temptalia, plus participate in random questions, polls, and the like that have a direct effect on what might be posted next. I often poll both Facebook fans and Twitter followers when I’m debating between certain products to review or what they might like to see next. It’s so quick and engaging, and it helps me help you. Facebook also allows you to interact with Temptalia readers whenever you want!
  • Twitter: When it comes to quickest way to get information out, Twitter is my go-to. Sometimes it might be about a sale, upcoming reviews, or the latest MAC launch available for sale. Twitter is also more active with day-to-day communications from myself than our other social media outlets (like Facebook).  Like on Facebook, I often ask for reader input on things I’m working on.
  • YouTube: We post a variety of product/swatch slideshows as well as live reviews! If you don’t like much text but love looking at photos, you just might find our slideshow videos a new way to enjoy Temptalia! Live reviews are often first impressions, and I give you my initial thoughts on colors, textures, and the like.
