Revlon Eyebrow Products

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


Revlon is a line that I revisit every leap year, I suppose.  Actually, the line had some staple products for me way back in the 80's.  Anyone remember its unbelievable eyeshadow base?  That was a forerunner in its category, the product really worked and eyeshadows lasted all day and well into the night.  I also loved their mascara that was clear but had a black swirl in it.  Those were the days when Revlon really caught my eye and I trusted the product.

Face Off - SyFy's Special FX Show That is Worth Watching

SyFy has recently aired a very interesting reality competition show called Face Off which airs on Wednesdays at 10/9C (and repeated many times during the week).  The show is hosted by actress Mckenzie Westmore whose lineage is considered to be Hollywood makeup royalty; great grandfather George Westmore founded the first movie make-up department in 1917. 

On a Verge of a Purge

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


I bought these Kryolan HD Micro Shades when I first began my blog last year or so and they were nice except for the container.  Pumping the thing took forever.  Eventually, Kryolan changed the packaging.  I haven't re-bought the items because I am afraid they will dry out like they have in this so-called "airless" container. 

My Oldest Cosmetic Item - Helena Rubinstein Raisin Lip Pencil

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


My Helena Rubinstein lip pencil is the oldest (vintage) make up item I have.  The circa is early to middle 1980's.  The color is called Raisin and in my mind it has nothing to do with it unless they were thinking of golden ones which still isn't close. 

Borghese Rapido Nail Lacquer - Chroma and Lira

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

I was out hunting for a gold nail polish and I wanted one that wasn't too warm or too orange yellow.  I didn't think finding a simple gold polish would be hard but it was, at least for me.  Then, I saw Borghese Rapido Nail Lacquer ($8USD).  I am guessing these are new since I never seen them at ULTA and I don't think the line had fast-drying nail polishes up until now.

Is NARS Portobello a Magic Mushroom?

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


I bought this during the Sephora F&F sale.  I know what you are thinking, I have enough beige and nude colors.  If you weren't thinking that then it was my voice of reason.  I really didn't need another set of beige colors, but these were NARS and it had been a long time since I had used anything from that line.

Going Mad Over NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils

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


I always see these pencils at my Ulta but never got around to buying them.  Then, I bought one which was the lavender.  I went crazy and ordered the entire lot off of ebay!  I don't know what got into me, maybe it was the red pencil that was glaring at me on the NYX website.  You know I have a weakness for anything red that can be worn on the eyes!  I have all 28 pencils and here are the colors.

Tarina Tarantino Magic Hour Smudge Pens

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


Chanel used to have a dual ended pen back in the 80's which were innovative and a nice concept back then but they soon became a gimmick because the shadow just didn't apply well.  The sponge tip applicator became this shiny bowling ball like tip and so did the shadow that was housed in the cap.  I wasted precious dollars back then.

Vintage Chanel Baubles

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

Yes, this is another post of my vintage collection.   The top one is a hairclip that is made of red leather and has the chi chi double C's.  I thought having the double c's in my hair was really cool.  Now, I don't even wear a pony tail so this just sits in my jewelry box.

Argan Oil and Other Cosmetics by Josie Maran

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


I am probably the last person to try Argan oil.  Okay, that is an exaggeration but I didn't jump on the bandwagon right away because of a show I watched a few years back on the History Channel called All About Dung hosted by Monty Halls (not Monty Hall of Let's Make a Deal).  He travels from Oregon to India discovering and uncovering dung.  I am so glad I didn't have smell-o-vision but I did have a can of Lysol close by. 

Physicians Formula - Glam Collection Gel CreamLiners

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


When I saw NouveauCheap blurb about these on her blog, I went searching for them and found nothing until it came close to the new year.  Typical that Ulta would display these just after Xmas and before the New Year knowing people want shimmer and glam for the New Year Eve parties.  I think Ulta was doing a special pricing on these because I noticed a discount when I paid for this.

Hooded Eyes - Occidental and Asian

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

Here, I have taken three different hooded eyes.  First, what are hooded eyes?  Good question.  I always think of Kenny from South Park when I hear this.  Basically, the orbital ridge will lap over the crease, hiding the depth of the eye.
