Brooke reviews Bloggers’ Obsessions

Happy Sunday!

I thought it would be nice to highlight some of the lovely people who had faith in Jealousy Wakes and bought it.  I’ve been trying to keep tabs on all the reviews, swatches, and looks you have all been sharing across the web.  If I missed yours, please feel free to link to it in the comments.  I’ll be sure to dig it out of spam if it ends up there!

  1. ty for the link <3

  2. I haven’t had a chance to try out anything from this collection because I haven’t received the package yet. I will definitely swatch away when I do!

  3. Emeline

    Aww but everything is sold out, this is a bit painful >_<

    I’m disappointed that Jealousy Wakes was only available online for a couple of hours…. ? Did you promote this a little bit too well? I don’t really see the point in reading or watching reviews of an eyeshadow that I cannot purchase.

    • I wanted to give thanks to those who purchased and reviewed, for their confidence in me.

      While the color is lovely, and it is exciting for Christine (congrats by the way), I honestly felt like the promo the color received on this site was a bit overkill. Not my intention to offend anyone, but I have seen enough Inglot eyeshadows and Jealousy Wakes to do me for quite awhile :)

      • I’m so sorry! I had many, many reader requests for Inglot eyeshadows – I try to listen to my readers and what they want to see. :(

        You won’t have to see much more about JW since it already launched and there’s not much else to say. Sorry again!

        I think if you created an eyeshadow for MAC, you’d be pretty excited about it too, and would therefore probably post about it a lot.

        • @ Lisa E. well I think the point was that you were supposed to buy it before it got sold out… I mean, it WAS limited edition and we were informed of it.

          By the way Christine, I friggin LOVE JW! I wear it all the time, I’m so impressed with the shade you created! Congrats!

      • First of all, I am not a MAC addict and own less than 5 MAC items. I bought JW the night before it launch, not realizing it would be so popular. It is just a pretty and unique green. I, want to see other people’s reviews on JW and the other Blogger’s Obsession. I dont think Christine is sitting on her laurels and this is not an overkill. I would want to know how many JW MAC were produced also. Christine does a fair share of Iglot, Guerlain bronzers, and every MAC product in sight and I have to skim thru those. We should not kill the messenger. MAC dropped the ball on this one, not Christine.

    • Heidi

      Yeah, I agree with you. I just skimmed through this page for that reason, not interested in reviews for something I cannot purchase either, I wanted to though. There becomes a point where this whole thing seems like showing off, especially with the poll.

      • I’m sorry again – I really just wanted to figure out what kind of quantity MAC actually put out, since they wouldn’t tell us anything. I also wanted to give *back* to the people who had faith in the product by linking to their posts.

        • Gives Christine a cyber hug.

          Admittedly I was just going to post say I don’t want to watch/read any of these since I missed out on the shadows I wanted but it not mad at any one then MAC to more for forethought into how popular and well informed their consumers are. Also I’ve put myself on a no buy so it’s not like they will get any more out of me till November. XP

          I appreciate the Inglot swatches but there are SO many shades it makes ordering over the phone (still no Canadain online store) less never racking.

    Thanks so much for linking to my blog, Christine (eyeshadowjunkie)!!! I visit yours ALL the time. You are partially responsible for makeup obsession.

  6. Thanks so much for being apart of an awesome collection and the Sunday Link Love. It is much appreciated!

  7. I thought Karla Sugar did a honest and awesome review. :-)

  8. Mai

    It’s unfortunate that MAC is always so slow when it comes to shipping to the West Coast, I’ve got to wait until Tuesday to get my hands on Jealousy Wakes!

  9. hi! Thanks for linking to me! you’re right, I’m not a big MAC eyeshadow fan. I’m not sure why, I just can’t get into them. But your eyeshadow is pure LOVE! It is the only one I felt was pigmented enough to stand on it’s own. And the color is amazing. From all the posts I’ve seen and even comparing to my meager collection, there is nothing else like it. If MAC is smart they will bring it back because it is the best MAC shadow ever. I still think they need to hire you to create their products or at the very least for quality control. I would be a much bigger MAC fan then!

  10. Thanks very much for the link, Christine. I’m really enjoying JW and you have every reason to be proud of the work that you did.

  11. thank you so much for the link! i am such a big fan of your blog and i’m honored to be mentioned in it.

  12. Erin

    Thanks for linking to me! I’ve been reading Temptalia for several years now, I’d say since close to the start. I am loving Jealousy Wakes and am really happy it did so well! Great job!

  13. Wow, Christine. When I saw the Sunday Link Love, I felt so honored to be in here. Thank you so much for being not only my go-to beauty blog, but for giving back to the beauty community so much. I really appreciate it so much! So glad I got my hands on Jealousy Wakes!

  14. Brooke

    Thanks so much for featuring my video, I hope it’s helpful to people still debating on the non-soldout items :)

    Thanks for the link love :) You created an amazing shade that is universally flattering…I have been thinking up tons of different ways to wear it but honestly I love it simply by itself on the lid. Its such a stand out/stand alone color. Wonderfully done.

  16. I have some pictures and a review on Jealousy Wakes and Hocus Pocus :)
    I’m going to try and put a look up eventually using both shadows as well.

    I can’t wait to get the package from my helpful US friend. :D

  18. I just posted a summer brights look using Jealousy Wakes. It is such a lovely color to work with! I can’t wait to try it in a more subtle look!

    just got my jealousy awakes E/S I love it<3 I used UD E/S in verve and whiskey on the water line and it really made my brown eyes pop, I also love the fact that J.A changes in color depending on what eyeshadow you use with it, it can look very green or teal, great job Christine!
