What’s on your list? What do you want to be talked into or out of? Comment below using the following format (and please make sure to observe whether someone is looking to be talked into or out of a product and respect that direction!)
Talk You Into or Out of?:
Item you want:
Why you want it:
Why you are hesitating:
Browse swatches! Try using our Swatch Gallery to lookup swatches on the fly, whether you want to view swatches of all shades in a particular formula, are trying to narrow down to a particular matte red lipstick, or need to compare two swatches side-by-side.
Avoid dupes! Before you buy, check to see if you have dupes in your stash or perhaps have tried similar shades in the past and didn’t end up liking them. You can lookup dupes on The Dupe List by product type or a specific shade, and you can also compare two palettes side-by-side to see how much (or little) overlap there is. BONUS! If you’ve created an account on Temptalia, you can keep track of products you own through your vanity, and then you’ll be able to limit your search results to dupes you own!
Also, I thought it might be useful to highlight some of the bestselling formulas at Sephora that I’ve also reviewed and link below for those looking for a deep dive into research prior to purchasing:
You may also find our roundup of the top 100 products released from January through March and April through June this year useful (but will include products available at all retailers, not just Sephora). Similarly, our Best of 2017 posts include picks across categories and price points with many products picked being permanent. I also put together annual gift guides during the holiday season using only permanent products, so you can find even more picks from 2017’s gift guides.
We hope you’ll consider supporting Temptalia by shopping through our links below. Thanks!
