Welcome to Swatch-all-idays!


Welcome to Swatch-all-idays!

One of my resolutions for 2011 is to be more organized, stay on top of things, and be more realistic about the volume of products I can review in detail with full swatches.  Ideally, I’d love to start off with a clean slate so-to-speak by clearing out an ever growing backlog of products I’ve photographed, swatched, and often tested, but for whatever reason, never got through the photo editing process and thus were never written up.  I am often ambitious and well… don’t have as much time as I’d like!  I would like to do better for you in 2011!

For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be doing quick reviews.  I’ll try to include as much relevant information as I can based on my notes, and I will, of course, indicate if I haven’t tested and only swatched.  These reviews are going to be quick and dirty–and sometimes posts are not as detailed as I like (e.g. a blush is not shown on the face, only swatched).  I’m clearing out photos I’ve had since June with the total number nearing 10,000 (these are all raw, unedited photos).

A couple of weeks ago, I asked readers whether quick reviews were helpful as opposed to not reviewing at all.  I would love to do full, detailed reviews for every product–trust me, I would!–but I’m recognizing that I need to stop the bleeding before I can heal the wound.  Readers said that photos and swatches are helpful enough and worth posting, if I am unable to do a full review.  I will still have regular, full reviews being posted everyday, just like usual, but I will also be posting additional quick reviews.  Like stocking stuffers!  All extras on top of normal daily content.

It may be the holidays… but it’s SWATCH-ALL-IDAYS here on Temptalia!
