Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Skintone – by my name, still suntanned. I had to work outside in the snow for NYE gig, had so many layers of sunscreen, balms and cream products it was one of the few times I looked like a glazed donut haha.

First lip color – Tizo lip sunscreen and Sephora lip stories balm in #4 (strawberry popsicle color)

First palette – SG x Temptalia Quintessence, Aurora is the prettiest color! Used it all over the lid, and to set cobalt and indigo eye pencils (was pleasantly surprised I got compliments : )

First blushes – Fenty cream Rose Latte (pinky terracotta brown) and Tower cream Golden Hour (pinky coral). I’m glad I used warmer colors as my red cheeks from the cold made everything rosy anyway.

Off topic – I so appreciate your swatches and reviews Christine, and the comments and info from all the lovely people in the Temptalia community, it really helps me figure out the wide world of makeup. I hope everyone has a beautiful, healthy and happy New Year! 🙂
