Jane Iredale Cream to Powder Eyeliner in Black Brown Plus

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


Don't let the cream-to-powder part fool you; it is more of a cream cream that is dryer than most creams but moist enough for the lashline.  If I compare this to a pro product like Joe Blasco Ultamattes, Jane Iredale is more consumer friendly and requires less precision and/or blending when used as an eyeshadow or liner.  Yes, this can be used as a cream eyeshadow.  The colors are practical and nice-deep matte brown, golden shimmer brown, and shimmery copper brown. 

Jane Iredale Taupe - Is This the Taupe of All Taupes?

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


I know for many of you makeup junkies out there, you have an obsession with taupes.  So do I!  But like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, I find that many of the taupes I have tried just don't work right: too brown, too gray, too dark, too light, too warm, too cool.  You know what I mean. 

Eye Makeup Brushes from Paula Dorf and Cinema Secrets

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*

I was recently asked what brushes were being used in the most recent Into the Palette post.  Brushes are mostly a preference and believe it or not, not every brush is made for all shapes of the eye.  Different brushes do work better on small lids or monolids and others with space on their lid.  The following is only a guide on how and why the brushes were used for that specific area.  Remember, you may not agree since application habits can differ.

Lauren Hutton Lipstick in Petal

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


Lauren Hutton was one model that I remembered well because of her tooth gap smile.  She wasn't perfect in the sense that she wasn't the molded model, she was more of the real person that rocketed to supermodel status.  Now, she makes wonderful cosmetics marketed for real people and for mature women. 

Julie Hewett Bijou Lipstick Jacqueline

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


Yes, I bought this one because when you have all of Julie's lipsticks, you want the new ones that come out because they feel so comfortable on the skin.  This is another Bijou lipstick which retails for $20USD.  The Bijou ones are great if you aren't into the semi-matte reds.  These are like a lipbalm texture but with more color but less than the lipstick.  Jacqueline is the newest one.

Three Custom Color Specialists Loose Powders

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


I am totally in love with 3CC loose powders.  Now, I know I said RCMA No Color was my Holy Grail of powders and it still is.  3CC just makes these luxurious tinted loose powders that are so sheer and refined that you would think you are applying the most exquisite loose powders of some glamorous high end brand.  Well, you are but with a pro touch.

Joe Blasco's MUATV and Tours of My Two Fave Beauty Sites: Naimie's and Frends

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*

For those of you who never visited MUATV (which I have a link to on the bottom right hand corner of this blog) I suggest you do because Joe Blasco not only interviews people in the industry and reviews some products other than his own, he tours my two favorite beauty supply stores Naimie's and Frends.  He also tours Cinema Secrets store while interviewing the founder Maurice Stein

MyChelle Cosmetics Dermaceuticals - Mineral Makeup

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


MyChelle Cosmetics Dermaceuticals is a line that consists of skincare and mineral makeup that is free of phthalates, parabens and fragrance.  I have often seen the skincare at my local Whole Foods but never seen the revamped cosmetic line.  Years ago I bought the lip and cheek sticks which were pretty nice and now they have foundations, concealers, eyeshadows, cheek, and lip products.  Since I had a Skincarerx.com gift certificate, I decided to try the foundations and a concealer.
