Some exciting news developed this morning, as Temptalia was mentioned briefly in an article called The Key Sites which lists ten of the hottest beauty blogs, by Women’s Wear Daily (WWD). The Key Sites is an accompanying article to Beauty In the Blogosphere, an article that talks about the growing influence of beauty blogs on the industry and compares and contrasts some of the issues concerning print vs. blog reviews and usage.  Thanks to WWD and Matthew Evans!
