Happy Halloween!! A Recipe for Blood..and maybe Guts!

The following is an excerpt of the interview and the full article by Aaron Sagers can be can be read here.


I had a beauty post ready but it is Halloween.  And when I think of Halloween I think of the actor Bruce Campbell (currently starring in Burn Notice) who starred in the greatest horror movies of all time the Evil Dead movies:  Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness.  So when @AaronSagers a paranormal pop fiend/writer of paranormalpopculture.com interviewed @groovybruce to give his blood-curdling special effects recipe.  Well, I just had to pass this on, after all blood has to look as real and gory on camera and anything fake can easily be ousted thanks to HD nowadays!

ORLY Rock the World

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


Rock the World is another nail polish from ORLY Mineral FX collection. The color reminds me of a lipstick I had way back by Sebastian Trucco called Courtly-a burgundy rose with gold glimmer to warm the color up.  This one is similar with the burgundy rose base but not only does it have gold glimmer, it has rose pink glimmer.

L to R: A Walk in the Park, Nine to Five, Girls Night Out

Puttin' On the Glitz ($48USD) is part of Tarte's 2011 Holiday Collection.  This is a limited edition zip-up clutch bag that holds a palette consisting of six eyeshadows and a face color.  You get three palettes each with their own theme: A Walk in the Park, Nine-to-Five, and Girls Night Out.  Also included is a sheer pink lipgloss.

Vintage Evening Bag

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


Here is another vintage item that I bought long ago at Covent Garden's Antique Market.  After my initial purchases of the vintage compacts, I went scouring for some other vintage stuff which included a gorgeous crotchet evening dress which I will probably show in a future post.  During the search I found this gorgeous evening bag.  I am not sure what year, maybe 1940's or 1950's but it is a steel-caged bag housed some extras inside.

Nails of the Moment - ORLY Emberstone

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


I bought this awhile back when the display of ORLY Mineral FX had been slightly pillaged.  I didn't have a selection to choose from but I figured why not try what was left.  The one I show here is the Emberstone.  I am not really a red nail polish wearer.  I know it is a classic color but for some reason red polish makes me feel so matronly.  (That's only me and not on someone else.)

Ben Nye Special White Matte Foundation

Ben Nye has been a line that I have been using for ages and it has become a line I can depend on for price, quality, and consistency.  One of my favorite items that I use and probably a bit out of the ordinary is the Special White Matte Foundation (IS-1). 

Eye Looks with LORAC Bejeweled Eye Shadow Palette Trio

I did some quick EOTDs (Eye Of The Day) looks with these quads.  Nothing fancy, just an example of how they wear on the eyes.  If you haven't read my review on these, you can click here.

My Thoughts on Wet n Wild Eyeshadows

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


Yes, I have some Wet n Wild eyeshadows.  They were hidden deeply in my box of shadows. Wet n Wild has a long standing memory in my life because of the price.  I remember as a little girl the stuff sold for 59¢ each or 2 for $1 at Walgreens and when it was on sale the stuff was 3 for $1.  Today, it is still a bargain drugstore line but how does it compare to what I have tried?

Some More Lipsticks - L'Oreal, Maybelline, and Rimmel

Here are four lipsticks that I never posted on my blog.  Two of them I acquired recently and the other two just slipped my mind.

Makeup Constipation - Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

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

My Constipated tube of UDPP. Top before tip is cut and below after.

I define Makeup Constipation three ways-(1) Staring at an overwhelming collection and not knowing what to use. (2) Stuck in a makeup rut. (3) When a makeup item won't apply correctly or is hard to apply.

The Best Matte Eyeshadows - Viseart Basic Eyeshadow Palette

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

After the previous post of my box of eyeshadows, I have concluded that this Viseart Basic Eyeshadow Palette is one of the best basic matte shadow palettes that exist.  If you don't have this palette; you are a makeup loser.  I first mentioned this palette when I first started my blog here.

Look at All These Eyeshadows and Some Other Unimportant Talk

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


Here is a box of eyeshadow that I have accumulated in the past two years of blogging.  I still have more but it didn't fit inside the box.  Compared to others, my collection is relatively small since I purge each season.  What I have kept, really are for reference and for my own analytical purposes. 

Face Stockholm Picture Perfect Foundation

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


This is a huge container (1.5oz-$48USD) of Face Stockholm Picture Perfect Foundation which a friend gave me a while back.  I assumed it had been mislabeled because she had porcelain skin and even though it had been labeled Shade A, from the bad swatches on the site I would say this is anywhere from a "C" to maybe an "F".  Either way the foundation is certainly a light medium to medium with yellow undertones.

A Quick Look at LORAC Bejeweled Eye Shadow Palette Trio

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


At first when I saw this in the ULTA flyer, I didn't believe the price.  Knowing mistakes can be made, I decided to go down and check this out in person.  Amazingly, there was one left and I know why-the price.  LORAC Bejeweled Eye Shadow Palette Trio is an ULTA exclusive.
