Temptalia Launches MAC Cosmetics Database (Beta)

These past few weeks have been awfully busy, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share the news! We’ve put together a detailed, fully searchable database of past and present MAC Cosmetics products.

MAC Cosmetics Collection & Product Database

There are several really cool ways you can view products: by collection (1996 to present), by year (1996 to present), by product finish (e.g. matte, satin, etc.), by product type (e.g. lipstick, skincare, etc.), and by status (e.g. permanent, limited edition, discontinued, or PRO). Going forward, one major feature will be that the database will be cross-referenced with the Temptalia Gallery so you can simply click to view a photo (if there is one). Otherwise, the database is ready for your perusal! :)

As always, this is a beta release, so please be sure to e-mail us (or leave a comment on this post) if you spot any errors.  (Including missing products/collections/information.)

Thank you, and please let us know what you think!

P.S. – The boy coded the database, I did the data portion! That’s the “we” — the dynamic duo ;)
