Check out this post to see swatches of several limited edition and permanent blushes by MAC Cosmetics.
According to MAC Cosmetics…
Colour for the cheeks and face. Various formulas. Different looks.
POWDER BLUSH FINISHES
Iridescent, lightly shimmering colour. Adds highlights: provides a frosted “bloom” to the cheeks.
Flat matte finish. Goes on lightly. Builds well. Blends with the skin.
Light refractive sheen-style finish. Adds subtle highlights to the skin.
Shy-on tints in a sheer-on micro-refined powder. Not transparent. Goes on faint. Looks real.
Jet-milled and micro-fine, just like Sheertone, but tickled with just-enough shimmer to make light dance on the cheeks.

Introducing NEW Eye Shadow Quartets from Hard Candy
One of our best-selling products since its original launch, introducing two brand new Eye Shadow Quartets from Hard Candy. Just like the quartets that came before, these dazzling new additions offer four completely unexpected, yet complimentary colors in one sleek compact: a base shade, a crease color, a highlighter and a liner. But the fun is in mixing them up! These silky shadow shades have an intense payoff and blend easily. Offering one kit of earthy greens and another set packed with a neutral and a range of purples, these new Eye Shadow Quartets have a little something for everyone.
Packaged in our iconic, silver compacts, each case springs open to reveal the array of our velvety soft shadows and two easy-to-use mini tools. Sweep the long-lasting color across your lids with the double-sided sponge applicator, use the angled liner brush along your lash line with extreme precision, or blend your lines for natural glamour. These convenient compacts deliver an easy-to-achieve look for day, travel perfectly for touch-ups and transform your face for evening. Can’t get enough of your new look? Lucky for you, each compact comes with a built-in mirror so you can see what everyone else is staring at!

EYE AFFAIR Introducing NEW Matte Eyeshadows from Urban Decay
the scoop You asked for them and we listened! Urban Decay is proud to present NEW Matte Eyeshadows. Sexy, sophisticated and never dull, we’ve formulated these eye gems the Urban Decay way — in a rainbow of gorgeous hues, not just neutrals. Created by popular demand, our new collection of shadows (sans sparkle!) is available in a wide variety of stunning shades — from blendable earth tones to vibrant bursts of colors. Just like our current shadow range, the Matte Shadows are pigment-rich and feature an ultra-soft texture. Low in binders, the payoff is amazing and never chalky. Incredibly blendable, dangerously beautiful, and very versatile, this new collection-with its provocative names and incredible formula-is truly addicting.
the goods Guaranteed to be a hit with Urban Decay shadow devotees, this eye range features a high quality formula that offers the very softest texture with the heaviest pigment load. The result? A never-before-seen application and blendability in a matte shadow. The finish looks incredible and feels luxurious too. Available in an impressive array of shades, ranging from classic neutrals to brilliant eye-catching hues, Matte Eyeshadows go on as sheer or dramatic as you desire. Dust them on for a hint of subtle color, smudge them for sex-kitten appeal or layer them on for individual looks to meet your each and every makeup need. Use dry or apply with Eyeshadow Transforming Potion for intense color. Want to switch things up? Try them as a liner or mix with your existing Urban Decay eye sparklers.
Created with long-lasting staying power, these shadows can be worn long into the night and won’t fade or crease. And for true night owls, simply pair these new matte shades up with our all-star Eyeshadow Primer Potion for payoff that’s even richer and color that lasts even longer. Packaged in the classic Urban Decay subway token pot, we added a gunmetal finish to this collection so shadow groupies can differentiate these matte hues from their shimmering Urban Decay sparklers.

I have lots of new “site” type stuff for you to check out!
First, Temptalia has a MySpace, and I would LOVE it if you’d add me as a friend! Just check out the profile for the blog here.
Now, I’ve gotten a few questions about me and what I do, so I wrote up a little “about me” biography-esque page on both myself and a few tidbits about the blog. You can view that by clicking the “about” link at the top of the site, or by going here.
If you take a look to the right side of your page, we have created a reader community on MyBlogLog.com that you can join by going here. It’d be great to see all the readers in the community!
As you can see, we really try and listen to the readers, and those survey results told us a lot of things! Keep looking out for new changes!

Loyal Temptalia reader Janis shows off her gorgeous smoky eye!
I used Greenstroke Paint Pot on my entire lid, browbone and inner eye corners. Then I applied Plumage e/s on my entire lid and crease while fading it with a clean blending brush (#217) all the way above the crease. I used Nehru e/s all along the lower lashline and extended the line up to the outer corners of my upper lid to create a sort of cat’s eye effect. I blended this line with the Plumage e/s so there are no visible harsh lines. Next I put fake lashes along my upper lashline and lined it with MAC liner Tealo. Then I lined my lower waterline with Shu Uemura’s Drawing Pencil in M Black. For the lips I used Clinique’s Soft Shine lipstick in Creamy Nude topped with Christian Dior lipgloss in 674.

Hey readers! I spent the morning reorganizing all the looks I’ve posted since I started the blog into categories of color (plus neutral and smokey). I’d really love to hear your feedback on this change – love it, hate it, not sure? Let me know if it makes it easier to find the look you want or if it just bogs down the site. Any comments you want to impart on me would be absolutely appreciated!
So… what do you think?
