Sunday Link Love, Volume #058

Happy Sunday!

Today’s a quiet day for us — yesterday, my boyfriend’s brother and friend came down for fight night. Mellan had a great time, though, because the three boys threw the football around and Mellan and his brother-from-another-mother, Neptune, ran between them trying to grab the ball (neither was successful). Hope you’re having a good Sunday!

We are in the process of reviewing applications.  We will update this post as necessary.  We received an amazing amount of outstanding applications, so the process will be quite difficult, and we want to ensure we spend quality time reviewing each applicant.

We are looking for fun, passionate, and savvy individuals who love beauty, makeup, and skincare! If you live and breathe the world of beauty and would love to share your experiences and knowledge with a community of beauty enthusiasts, this is something for you! We are currently accepting applications for the following contributors:

  • Skincare Enthusiasts: Whether you have the degree to prove it or are a self-professed skincare junkie who reads through ingredient lists like a pro, we want to hear from you! We are looking for two to five contributors of varying skin types and ages to provide different perspectives as skincare can be such a maze to navigate through!
  • Hair Care Enthusiasts: Are you a styling wiz? Have you dealt with the most unruly hair and conquered the beauty market to find the very best? Or are you still on a seemingly never-ending journey for holy grail hair products? We’re looking for two to three contributors to focus on hair care tips, tricks, and reviews.
  • Fragrance Enthusiasts: Do you have a nose that knows? Can you dissect the different notes in a fragrance and translate it into a review or critique? We’re looking for one to two contributors to focus on fragrance tips and reviews.
  • Industry Experts: Are you a professional esthetician, hair stylist,  makeup artist, nail technician, etc.? We would love for you to share your professional viewpoint with readers along with tips and tricks from that perspective.
  • Going Global to Go Local: There are so many beauty brands that are only available in certain parts of the world, and while we may be able to cover many that dominate in the U.S., we are looking for one to three individuals from other areas of the world to give readers access to non-U.S. brands by those who know them best—locals!

Contributors will be asked to write one to three posts per month within their subject. In exchange, contributors will receive exposure and experience—and hopefully have a lot of fun! Temptalia’s audience reaches 600,000 unique individuals each month, and on average, Temptalia is visited 60,000 times per day—1.7 million visits per month and 5 million pageviews per month.

If you are interested, keep reading for what we look for in applicants along with the application! 

CoverGirl Summer 2011 Launches


CoverGirl Summer 2011 Launches

In July, CoverGirl launches NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara and Intense ShadowBlast Eye Color. Though CoverGirl noted a July launch, both popped up on several retailers online (like drugstore.com and walgreens.com).

NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara ($8.49)

It’s all about volume without the weight. NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara provides stunning volume that leaves lashes feeling luxuriously light and lifted. The mascara exchanges heavier synthetic waxes and polymers for natural beeswax, carnauba wax and tapioca polymers, which are lighter-feeling alternatives. COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara pairs perfectly with your other favorite NatureLuxe products: Silk Foundation and Gloss Balm, for an overall lightweight look, perfect for summer!

Intense ShadowBlast Eye Color ($7.99)

Try New COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast Eye Color, a liquid eye shadow with a built-in primer that transforms into a smooth powdery finish. Crease-resistant and fade-proof, your look will last no matter where your summer plans take you! The Pat McGrath-designed shade palette comes in 6 vibrant liquid-to-powder shades. Available in Beige Blaze, Platinum Pop, Brown Bling, Blue Bomb, Forever Pink, and Extreme Green.
