  4. Great video, Christine! :)

  5. Love the midweek review! Would really love to see this as a regular Temptalia feature. Super work, Christine! Your makeup looks rockin’ too :)

    • That’s the plan! We’ve been trying to figure out to do incorporate more video in a way that makes sense… and that can work with the lighting we have. Lighting has really been biting us in the butt, LOL!

      Thank you! :)

    Hey I really like this style of video and it fits really well with your blog type! Love as always Christine!

  10. I LOVE this video round up! I think your reviews are great but don’t always have time to read everything, so this totally works for a busy reader like me :)

    So that was the first video I’ve seen from you, and I must admit it was a strange experience. I loved the in depth reviews and synopsis. However, now that I’ve heard you speak and seen you talking, I don’t feel as connected because you seem almost intimidating!

    This is totally not meant as a bad thing, I am just trying to be honest because I know you have mentioned your videos not going over with your readers too well, and I wonder if some thought the same way I do but just didn’t say anything. In pictures, you appear to be more natural and personable, but in videos you look so perfect and cooly composed, and sound more high- maintenance (I was looking for a better word but couldn’t find one, do that’s not exactly what I mean). More like the anti- Kandee Johnson. Lol!

    When I think about it, it’s really because in pictures your hair is usually pulled back and you’re smiling! And so it’s a shock to some people to see you another way, Either way, I still adore your blog and hope I haven’t weirded you out. Sean is quite a lucky guy!!

    • Thank you for letting me know, Kathleen! I’m really disappointed to hear that I come across that way and will work on it. If you have any suggestions, I’d be happy to hear them! Thanks again!

    You have to do something with your hair! :) great reviews…smile.

    Christine, these are great – like another reader commented, sometimes I don’t have the time to read your thoughtful and really intense reviews, so these videos are a great feature for that! Also, for some reason it makes me want to go back to some of the products you mentioned and take a second look, even if I dismissed them the first time. I’m still debating about Trustafarian though! Its so gorgeous, and although I do understand your thoughts on it, I think I still need it. I would also like to agree with a couple of the commenters — relax, smile, slow down. It seemed like you were just doing the video because you had to, and you didn’t really want to be there, if that makes sense!

    Looking forward to now watching the two other videos you’ve already done for last week and this week!
