Trish McEvoy – The Power of Tools

September 6th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Brushes make a world of difference for your makeup application.   The difference between using the cheap little sponge or unusable tiny brushes that typically come with some makeup vs using quality brushes can dramatically change how makeup looks on your face.   And good brushes are not for professionals only.

I love my Trish McEvoy brushes – I’ve been collecting them for years and have never been disappointed in any of them – ever.   From the full sized brushes to the actual usable sized travel brushes from Trish McEvoy that I own, they all are part of my brush collection which get used and not just admired.  They are work-horse brushes that do their job beautifully.  Another wonderful thing is that I have never had issues with bristles falling out.  I take good care of my brushes and my oldest Trish brush is over 14 years old and work as well as the new ones I bought a week ago.

For a limited time, Trish McEvoy has this Power of Tools Brush Collection available in this pretty red quilted roll for $245.   These are full-sized brushes, and you get 10 of them, which come to an average of $24.50 a brush.  Yes, I know you know math – but $245 for a set of professional brushes that you will actually use is a great value.   And for the holiday weekend, there is free shipping through 9/5/11  11:59 EST and a deluxe size of Lash Enhancer Nighttime Conditioning Treatment.

Happy 4th Anniversary, Temptalia!

October 1st, 2010

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:


Happy 4th Anniversary, Temptalia!

Four years ago, back in October 2006, Temptalia began. We posted a whopping 230 looks on October 3rd, 2006–nearly a year’s worth of looks, prior to the day, because Temptalia began as an archive for my makeup looks, which I posted on the MAC Cosmetics Livejournal Community. It’s been quite the journey, an ever-exciting ride, and I know there’s so much more ahead of us. I look forward to the next year, and the next, and hopefully many more!

To date, Temptalia has…

  • … received 416,470 comments
  • … published 7,818 posts
  • … written 1,780 review posts (keep in mind many cover more than one product or shade!)
  • … created 840 looks.
  • … asked 1,086 questions through Temptalia Asks You.
  • … received 18.8 million visits, 58.9 million pageviews
  • … held over 300 contests.

I can’t believe I was an undergraduate when I started this blog and now I’m seven months away from graduating my JD/MBA program. I never thought this is where I would be, but this is exactly where I want to be. I live and breathe this blog, and I love every minute of it. It has given me purpose when I had none, and it has shown me where my passion truly lies. There is just something about the beauty of the Temptalia community that brings joy into my life. This was not my dream when I was five years old, but it has become the dream I never dared to dream. It is everything and more–even better than the dream.

Fun Facts

  • Temptalia really started to pick up in September 2007 (114 posts vs. 20-40 posts per month previously).
  • First review: MAC Holiday 2006 (10/21/06)
  • First non-MAC review: Prescriptives Here to Stay 24 Hour Mascara (9/13/07)
  • First super-awesome-cool thing I got to do because of the blog: Interview with Dita Von Teese (9/20/07)
  • My MAC Collection in 2007 (present day).

At present, Temptalia reaches approximately 500,000 unique people every month, with 1.4 million visits and 4.3 million pageviews per month.

I’d like to take this moment to thank all of the amazing people who have helped to make Temptalia what it is today.

To readers: The biggest thank you of all is to all of you. To all of the lovely people who have believed in me, believed in the spirit of Temptalia, and continued to visit, to support us, and to watch us grow–to participate and contribute to that growth. It is your feedback that helps us know what we do right, what we do wrong; your participation and contributions that give the site diversity and variety; your passion that inspires and motivates me to continually improve Temptalia. You have all watched me grow up (and are still watching me); you have seen me through my struggles, and you are all helping me reach my dreams. You have and will always be my focus and greatest motivator, and I can’t thank you enough for giving me the opportunity.

To my family: I will be eternally greatful for my family; my parents, sister, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Their enduring support that never wavers, not even once, gives me the strength to make it through moments of doom and pride in myself at each marker of success. Their love and support help me to achieve things I never thought I would, but they always knew I could. To my Mom: she is my mentor, as I work towards making my dreams come true; the most inspiring woman I know–my role model. To my Dad: he keeps me grounded and reminds me to have fun, who checks Temptalia regularly and even watches my YouTube videos after a long day at work. To my sister: for keeping makeup fun and learning about even more so. To my grandmothers, aunts, and uncles: for all of your word-of-mouth recommendations to anyone who listens, for knowing everything I’m capable of and never letting me forget it. You have helped me become the person I am today and shaped the person I will be in the future. You all drive me to reach for bigger, better things; to dream bigger dreams; and to know I will always have you to lean on.

To the boy: The level of emotional support you have given me over the years has been insurmountable. There is nothing that can repay you for that. For every time a comment has made me cry, you have been my shoulder; you have listened to me babble on and on about the same thing for hours on end, and you never tell me to shut up. For every success I have found, you have been there to share it with me. I look at you and know that I’m right where I’m supposed to be. Shaun does much of the behind-the-scenes work here at Temptalia, many things that are virtually invisible but absolutely essential. He is much more than just my emotional support–he’s technical support for all things Temptalia!

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to visit the blog, leave a comment, ask a question, or simply lurk! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your unending support over these past four years! There are never enough words to express to you what this blog has become to me, what you have all become to me. Every morning I wake up feeling lucky because I’m fortunate enough to be able to bring you Temptalia each day. Thank you!

See some then & nows!
