Solessence Radio Interview

A few weeks ago, the lovely Hillary of Solessence Radio asked to interview Temptalia, and as we were extremely flattered to be asked, we enthusiastically said yes! Hillary just posted the transcript of the interview (and you can always listen to the archived show, too), if you’re interested.

Kickin’ beauty shots! Insider launch info! Makeup database spanning from 1996! What’s not to like for the nearly 200k readers that stop by every month?

By day she’s a law student, and one of the top makeup bloggers around. At a height of 200k unique visitors a month, Christine Mielke has crafted her blog Temptalia.com into one of the hottest makeup resources. Her signature closeups of eye and lip applications, along with reviews of different brands, are top notch instructionals for readers. Combine that with her willingness to engage her audience, and you often find a lively comment trail for her posts.

You can view the transcript of the interview here.

    Great article! You do have an excellent blog, and I agree one of the best things about it is the interaction. In addition to the great reviews/updates and pictures. Thanks!! :-)
    Does anyone happen to know what color the pinky/fuschia lipstick is in the picture halfway down the article? Thanks

    Great interview hon! How much longer do you have in your law program?

  5. Redhead (hi)

    This is EXACTLY what you deserve. You’re now something of a minor celebrity in the beauty world :)

    P.S.: How do you pronounce Mielke, your surname?

    Congrats Christine! :)

    I know you mentioned in your interview, that you don’t see yourself becoming a lawyer now. But if you did, what area of law are you thinking? I’m in Litigation but want to do Corporate or IP law. Too bad they don’t have an area of law for cosmetics! that would be so much fun…

    That’s true! I saw an internship for Chanel law students a few weeks ago. For me, that would be a dream internship! I wonder if you could get discounts still.. :)
