Make Your Own Color Story: Temptalia

What if you could make up your own color story? If you don’t already know, a color story is a run down of all the products and their descriptions when a cosmetic line releases a new collection. For instance, when I post upcoming collection information for MAC, those are color stories. Now, what would your color story be, if you could dream up one of your own?

Here’s my color story, complete with “pictures.”

Those are awesome! I would definitely buy them. πŸ™‚ I especially love the purple, blue, and 2 red eye shadows, jezebella lipstick, and all 4 pigments. You should send them to MAC, you’re so creative!

I’m a big big fan of your site!
I suppose this would be the first collection where I would buy EVERYTHING!
Send your pics and discriptions to MAC πŸ˜‰ Probably you should send it to MAC πŸ™‚
Have you edited the pics via Photoshop?

Aw, I’m glad you liked my made up collection! I would totally send it to MAC if I thought I had a chance, haha.

Yep, I edited them using Photoshop πŸ™‚


OMG, lol i love those colors!!!you are very creative!!! i love all of the colors! esp the pigments!!! good job!!! very impressive:)

WOW! This is just amazing! This is a line I would definitely consider purchasing. It would be cool if you teamed up with MAC πŸ™‚

You and I both! The colors are simply amazing. I’d get Insatiation, Scarletto, and Sirenic. Plus all the pigments! You can see the editing on the lipsticks(the squares of color). Might I suggest a soft brushed eraser? I can only assume you used layers. Photoshop is my BEST FRIEND, besides makeup of course…

i just found this article,and i can’t believe my eyes. it is only a question of time and You will come up with Your own MAC collection,for sure.
they need creative brains,like You!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i love the Temptalia pigment!!!!!!!!!!
i would definitely buy it,just to tell everyone,i am sporting Temptalia that day πŸ˜€
the Narcotica e/s is soooo chic!!!!! i already have a matching sweater to wear it with πŸ˜€
and i would get the Temptress lipstick,since i love purple on my lips πŸ˜€

OMG for a second I thought this wasa new collection inpired by tempalia lmao!! I got all excited ..aaww dammit
Dang u photoshop well!

I’m confused.. did you “make” the colors for the pictures.. especially for the lipsticks?? They’re so pretty. Are the acutal MAC products or did you make the colors yourself?? How did you do that?! (If you made it yourself, it looks so real.)

I made the colors using Photoshop πŸ™‚ I took existing MAC photos and then played around with them in Photoshop to change-up the actual color you see. Luckily MAC’s photography is pretty bunk in terms of color accuracy, LOL. MAC actually uses B&W photos and then overlays color on top for a LOT of their products – at least that’s how it used to be on the website (which is why color accuracy sucks!).
