Bamboo Isn't Just For Pandas-ALTERNA Bamboo Haircare

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

I don't do many haircare reviews because I basically can abuse my hair to no end.  Have I damaged my hair before?  Yes, it became gummy and gross and I had to have it cut to about ½ inch in length.  But that was back in the 1980's and anything done drastically was like totally awesome!

Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat

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


You saw the post on my crackle addiction and here is a short post on what the Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat look like.  I bought four colors: red, fuchsia, blue, and gold.  The mixture is thin compared to other brands like China Glaze and Barry M.

I Am Addicted to Crack-le

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


This is a quick post of the collection of crackle polishes I have accumulated.  I still think crackle polish looks better in pictures than in real life.  I mentioned the novelty wears off so what the hell am I doing collecting them?

Bronzers: Urban Decay Baked Bronzer & Lorac TANtalizer

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


Someone mentioned to me I looked pasty and the first thought that came to my mind was a memory of kindergarten and the kid who ate the school glue.  (I was new to America and I couldn't wait to tell my mum that Americans eat glue!)  So, when my friend said I looked like glue, the description didn't compute in my brain right away.  Then I realized that compared to others, I was pale and maybe a bit ghostly.  What ever happened to "pale is alluring"?  This comment made me go on a buying binge of bronzers.  (<--say that 10x's fast!)

In Search of the Holy Grail for My Brows

THE HOLY GRAIL!!

Like Percival in Excalibur, I to went searching for the Holy Grail.  In this case it was for my eyebrows.  I know, I had the product in the first place but it is only when you look or feel like sh!t that you realize how important the item can be.  My quest took me to many of places like the drugstore, beauty supply, and internet but I realized that buying around the actual product made me spend more than the Grail.  Here is what I accumulated.

Thanks to the ever-most fantastic frankening jar-ManGlaze Franken Juggs ($1.38USD), I have been conjuring up colors like a a mad-scientist which I feel is appropriate for the Fringe theme.

Artisan Naturals - Organic Skincare

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


I am not a Spa girl, therefore I like to do a skincare routine that is simple.  I basically cleanse the skin, use a toner/refresher (if I remember) then moisturize.  I have done the entire bit of using this and that turning my routine into what seemed like 20 steps to great skin.  Guess what happened?  I gave up!  I figured I just got bored with the process which is partially true.  The other part, I lost faith in the products which I used and just stopped altogether.  Why waste time on products that don't make you feel good?

A Bunch of Isadora Eye Shadow Quartets

Isadora Eyeshadow Quartets

I mentioned in my other Isadora post that I placed an order for more shadows; this time for the eyeshadow quads.  Yeah, more neutrals but admit it, you too are curious about these neutral quads.  I got the following Isadora Quads ($14USD) from Apothica-Muddy Nudes, Heavy Metal, Coffee Blends, and Cappuccino.

A Small High Voltage Haul and a Mother's Day Eye Look

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

It is Mother's Day here in the U.S. and I thought it would be nice to feature my mum who likes to wear eyeshadows from unusual brands.  (Hmmm maybe that is why I like to try the obscure.)  This time it is High Voltage Cosmetics.

Love at First Try - Artisan Naturals Essential Nutrients Facial Elixir

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


Lisa from Beauty Info Zone introduced me to the Artisan Naturals, an organic luxury skin and body care line whose products are sustainable, wild crafted, and fair trade ingredients.  No petrochemicals, artificial fragrance (I am all for that), no artificial colorants, no sulfates, no parabens. 

Bite Beauty Lip Products

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


Bite Beauty has bitten me with lipstick love.  I bought these two sets from Sephora, the Luminous Creme Lipstick Trio ($36USD) and the Define & Refine Lip Set ($36USD).  Both of these sets are excellent introductions to the lip products because individually the items retail for $24 each with the exception of the Lip Shine which retails for $20.
