Tamala is looking to enter the beauty industry with her line of products, which players first explored in a previous Friendship quest. This continues in the next Friendship quest, The Cost of Beauty, where they'll deal with customer complaints about the samples that were distributed.

They'll have to investigate these complaints before bringing them to Tamala's attention and learn what her thoughts are on these complaints. Will Tamala's beauty business survive this new development, which can be investigated in The Cost of Beauty Friendship quest for Palia.

How To Complete The Cost Of Beauty Friendship Quest In Palia?

After helping Tamala expand her beauty business in her Friendship level 2 quest, Beauty Business, players will follow up on the clients that accepted the samples in her Friendship level 3 quest, The Cost of Beauty. This quest will be triggered after reading a letter from Jel in which he complained about the sample cream he took, complaining of its negative side effects when using it, and tasks players in following up to see if anyone else experienced similar issues.

Players can refer to the Villagers who took the sample cream, which is Eshe, Jel, and Zeki, in which Zeki experienced his fur changing color to purple. When conferring with Eshe, she revealed that her ears had changed their shape to be more pointy and exclaimed that she didn't want the Duchess to see her in this state.

With the information gathered from Eshe, Jel, and Zeki, they can locate Tamala somewhere in Bahari Bay, which includes her home at Thorny Thicket. Explaining to her that the Villagers experienced some horrific side effects to her beauty cream sample, Tamala appears to be unbothered by the situation as she'll continue working on the formula "and carry on."

Naturally, players can bring up the ethical reasoning on why she's testing it on the Villagers; she exclaims that she's working on solving "a real problem" and she's not concerned about their feelings. They can allude to the sample not being intended as beauty cream; Tamala will thank them for the information, which concludes her Friendship quest.

Players can receive 25 Renown, 30 Silk Threads, and her room key and have their Friendship improve with Tamala. This quest must be completed as they need the key to enter her boudoir to retrieve a missing book for Caleri's Friendship level 3 quest, Knowledge Sleuth.
