I was feeling nostalgic and thinking about a lot of blogs that I utilized to checked out almost every day, that have gone totally dormant without any type of official goodbyes or closure. You most likely understand about a few of these, however I believed I’d share them anyway.
Probably much better understood as the arm that introduced a thousand lemmings (I didn’t comprise that term, I checked out it on MakeupAlley), she was widely known for her swatches of entire collections, making her blog a one-stop shop. I truly liked that she would swatch colours side-by-side so it was simple to make comparisons when trying to select between shades. Her publishing frequency started to decline and then she abruptly stopped updating her blog in may of 2013.
She was a extremely prolific blog writer with a enthusiasm for blushes as well as taupe eye shadows – right up my alley! I liked her photography as well as I always felt her colours were one of the most true-to-life out of all the blogs I frequented. Her last entry specified that she lost all of her photos as well as that she would have to retake the pictures to publish new entries, however she never did – that was in 2012.
She was the source for info on Oriental cosmetics at a time when there were not many English language articles or even gain access to to the products themselves. She made Oriental cosmetics accessible to the outside world which made her one of my go-to sites when I very first started to look into BB creams as well as Oriental skincare. Her last few entrances talked about starting institution as well as then she did a blog sale, as well as that was it.
She had the most lovely photography as well as extremely informative posts. Her guide to 25 different nail polish finishes is one of my favourite, and she made me appreciate holographic nail polishes. In one of her last posts, she wrote an entry about the annoyance of discovering her pictures being utilized without her permission, then she stopped updating July of 2011 without any type of other reason.

She was the authority on nail care – I discovered so much about the chemistry as well as components in nail treatment products. I likewise discovered exactly how to make faux Zoya Remove+ (acetone as well as glycerin) which I still make to this day! She composed about discovering a task in one of her last entrances as well as then trailed off in 2014.
Her blog has altered its focus from strictly beauty to more of social commentary, as well as she only posts when a month now. My favourite series she ever did was “Taupes You Can’t Have“. Also inspect out “Blushes You Can’t Have“, the comply with up abuse series. Her composing had me in stitches!

I comprehend that people lose rate of interest in blogging, or life gets busy, or there are major modifications in one’s life… however not even an entry to state an official goodbye? Or if they don’t want something that definitive, perhaps a publish to state that they’re doing fine, they just decided to not update for now. I don’t know, I just discover it odd. I’m totally small-time compared to these blogs, however I promise if I ever take a break or stop blogging, I’ll make an official entry, ok?
I suppose one thing I am grateful for is that all the old entrances of these blogs are still up as well as the contents have not been removed – yet. For now, I can keep rereading old entrances as well as enjoy them. I’m just waiting on the day when Temptalia decides to phone call it quits, then we understand an age has ended!
Any blogs you utilized to checked out that no longer update?
