Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. 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!

Got MAC Cheek Pollen blush yesterday and I love it. So warm it goes beautiful with my skin tone. I think MAC makes good blushes ( I love Gingerly and Sincere).

Christine, I find in amazing that you’re able to review almost 10 products a day, 365 days per year! That’s a lot of coordination of eyes, cheeks, and lips! Thank you for the work you do. I would be much more hesitant to try new products without good reviews, and yours are consistent and meticulous.

It sounds more impressive than it is, I think! A lot of it is inflated by those eyeshadow palettes – almost 8-10 products right there between two eyes, lol. Theoretically, I should be testing closer to 13-15 products a day and possibly 20-25 if whatever I’m testing is so-so (anything that lasts 8 hours or less for eyes/cheeks, I could probably get two rounds of testing in!).

Ahhh… Christine. The only thing you SHOULD be doing is enjoying your life. When you start pressuring yourself, you create stress, and that sucks all of the fun out of the things you once loved. You’re absolutely amazing at what you do, and you provide more in-depth information than any other beauty blogger I’ve come across. I mention your blog so frequently that my husband knows what I’m referring to when I say, “On Christine’s site…” 😀

I’m one of those weirdos who really likes to “work” (I say “work” because while this is what I do for a job, it only feels like work when I have to see to the details like taxes and business licenses, lol) so I enjoy 85-90% of the time I put into Temptalia 🙂

I promise I take breaks and do other things, though 😉

This has been such a fabulous year as I tried so many great products on your special recommendations and your reviews 🙂
I cant thank you enough for the hard work you do to keep us glued 🙂 stay blessed sweetieeee

I love this round-up sciencey mathy stuff! You work so hard and it is so much fun visiting the site to see all the features!

Wow – what a fantastic list. You are incredibly hard working and committed to bring the best of beauty to our monitors.
Thank you so much. Happy New Year Christine!

These are incredible statistics! You do more work than any other blogger I know of, Christine. Thank you so much for your dedication!

In ONE word: Overwhelming!!!

In all honesty, I seriously cannot wrap my brain around how much you do in even 1 days time, much less 1 year! Christine, you are the consummate professional at this, which is why very, very few other bloggers/ vloggers come at all close to your site’s popularity. Thank you for all that you do!

Oh my goodness, what an amazing amount of great work you do!! Before I stumbled upon your blog, I was haphazardly buying stuff and reading random reviews online. My stash is so much better (and bigger) because of you, and I found a great community of people to share my obsession. Is there stuff us readers can do to help support Temptalia in 2016? Like reading everyday (which I do), commenting, mentioning stuff we bought because of your review, clicking on ads, clicking on your Ebates or shopping links? Maybe you should do a post on how we can help support Temptalia? You do so much for us, we should help support you, and make sure the Temptalia blog thrives

Thank you, Katherine! The best way to support is really just by reading – enjoying the content, commenting, sharing it (when relevant, of course). Purchasing through affiliate links goes a long way for sure, but it’s really the loyalty of readers that has enabled the site to be successful overall 🙂

Wow, 3,564 reviews!!! You are a machine! (and yes, I saw your disclaimer, but it’s STILL amazing!). And 10 million unique visitors. Cheers to a fantastic year, Christine!

Congratulations Christine ! You did such an amazing job (again) this last year. Thank you for your hard work 🙂 Your website is the most professional of the blogsphere. Thumbs up !

That’s a lot of reviews! Glad to see it was more A and B than C,D,F. It still seems like a lot of F’s though!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
