Temptalia FAQ – 200+ Questions!

This is only a temporary FAQ, as we work to build a robust question and answer system that enables better searching and the like, I wanted to take a moment to point it out, because it has quite a lot of information. There are over 200 questions and answers ranging from typical questions (when did Temptalia start? what does Temptalia mean?) to many answers about product recommendations.  The FAQ is not exhaustive and consists of questions that are, naturally, more general in nature.

I urge you to check it out and–for now–do a quick search for your question (something like CTRL+F).  If you have a question that is not answered by the FAQ, please free to ask it here.  If you are looking for dupe, one excellent place to start is The Dupe List.  I’m always happy to answer any questions that have not been addressed elsewhere, so feel free to ask here.

I am no longer answering questions about dupes, recommendations, etc. through e-mail; you must use our Formspring, which is a Q&A service.  You do not have to register, and unless you do, they are anonymous.   I look forward to answering your questions–just note that while I work to answer quickly and frequently, it may take a few days (which is why we have built so many resource posts and features, to help answer potential questions instantly).

  2. What an awesome, extensive reference. <3

    It looks like a lot of times under 'What are good lipglosses for _____ skin?' you listed lipsticks, though.

    Is there anyway to search through the Formspring Q&As? I asked a question in the last round of Ask Temptalia but doing Ctrl+F only works on the 20 or so questions on that page!
