Happy Holidays - A Modern Tree by Mosha Katani, A Holiday Manicure, One of My Favorite Christmas Movies, and a Hiatus

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

Pic credit goes to Mosha Katani

I have to thank Mosha Katani the Queen (Goddess) of Kohl sending me this picture of books symbolizing a Christmas Tree.  I love it!  The symbol of a tree for the holidays is represented by something other than the good old pine tree.  Very modern, chic, and 21st century!  Maybe, I will do one next year in cupcakes, but I don't think it will last until Christmas.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Shadows and Dream Bouncy Blushes

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


Here are my last drugstore purchases.  I figured I would post these because during the holiday break you will all get antsy and want to just shop at some drugstore to relieve yourself from holiday anxiety.  What better way than to buy makeup that is just making its debut.  Two of them to try are the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Shadows and Dream Bouncy Blushes.

L'Oreal 24hr Infallible Eye Shadows

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


I waited silently for the L'Oreal 24hr Infallible Eyes Shadows ($7.99USD) to appear here in the good ol' USA.  I actually envied the makeup junkies across the pond who had access to these.  I heard only praises about these shadows and wondered about them.  I wondered about the colors, texture, and pigment.  I didn't have any of the Giorgio Armani shadows similar to these and I wasn't willing to cough up the $$$ since I had spent $36 on Chanel Illusion d'Ombre which I forgot to give a thorough review.

Quick Blurb on Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Eye Liner

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


After my last post on the fiasco packaging of the eye kohls, I have to say the Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Eye Liner ($9.99USD) has a pretty nifty packaging system.

There is a feeling of freedom in drugstore binges.  You don't have some cosmetic counter sales assistant telling you what you need and what will work in addition to the products you want.  You don't have your mind rationalizing against the sales assistant towards some of the suggestions.  In the drugstore you just have yourself and the overwhelming visions of awe when you see new items.

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Dream Bouncy Blush, L'Oreal Infallible and More

L'Oreal 24hr Infallible Eyeshadows ($7.99USD)

I went on a major drugstore binge today.  I went on an actual hunt for these products from Target to Ulta to Walgreens and nothing.  I figured as my day was dimming to sundown, my luck had turned bad.  Thirsty and tired, I wanted a bottle of Perrier to quench my parched soul.  I decided to pop into CVS and lo and behold...all the cosmetic stuff I had been searching for in brand-spanking new displays.  No one had touched these!!!!  I was the first!!!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

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


My reasons for avoiding Maybelline have been well documented by my high school friends. The pictures were proof that back in my salad days, foundation colors didn't come in skin tones, they came in sherbet tones of orange and pink.

Inglot Full Metal Eyeliners

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


In my last post on Inglot eyeliners I reviewed the Matte Collection AMC Eyeliner Gels which gave me a mouthful to say.  In this post, I do have some comments about the Full Metal Eyeliners ($13USD) but not as distinguishable.

Inglot Matte Collection AMC Eyeliner Gel - Worth the hype?

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


Let's face it, when blogs and makeup artist start praising a product you have to believe it will blow your expectations out like a cannonball.  But what happens when that cannonball soars then drops short of its mark?  You begin to analyze why all the praises and what you are doing wrong.

Stilazzi Make Up Case - The Traincase Recommended By Make Up Roadies

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


When it comes to traincases, I was late to the game. I didn't own one until a few years back. I wanted one for a long time though but never got around to buying one. I substituted my yearning for those fishing tackle boxes which I found were just made for fishing stuff; makeup was shaped differently and never fit right into those compartments. Others I would see at beauty supply stores which sold those brightly colored wigs. I knew from the store it wouldn't carry that good quality traincase. I didn't want one that fell apart within a year due to the flimsy hardware and thin cardboard. I wanted the ones the pros had! Well, if only Stilazzi was around back then, I could have easily have been satisfied.

Nars Blushes - Starting A New Collection

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


I used to be a faithful Nartian.  I collected the eyeshadows and blushes way back when they first came out.  Then I just strayed.  I ended up purging my collection.  Well, now I am starting back on the blushes but this time realizing that not all the colors will look good on me.  In fact, I thought many blushes looked good on me until someone asked me to make them animal balloons.  That is when I knew blush didn't enhance my face.

Like My Shoes? - Vintage Anne Klein Couture

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


Some of you may have wondered what shoes I was wearing in this post (scroll all the way down to the last picture).  I am wearing a pair of Anne Klein Couture mules that I bought long ago, I think in the late 80's.  I remember seeing these on display at the department store beckoning my name.  I didn't have any outfit to go with them but for some reason I had to have them!

Phil Keoghan NOW - His Amazing Luggage

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


There are two items that I hate to go casual shopping for and those are jeans and luggage.  Shopping for jeans is like a Road Block, it is a task that gets me so frustrated that I just give up.  Many of you know that it takes many brands to try on to find that decent pair that will look good and feel good on the body. 

Stilazzi Discount on Makeup Brushes

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

Stilazzi is currently having sales on various items each week until Christmas.  This week the sale is the makeup brushes.  Makeup artist Jordan Liberty of Give Good Face is quoted as saying: “What are they made of, anyway? Cocaine and unicorn fur? It’s like massaging your face with a kitten.”  Yes, a kitten without the kitty litter stuck to its tail!  If you would like to see the brushes in action check this out.

I Have the Blues - The Eyeliner Blues

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


Do you hear my harmonica?  Do you feel it? Yeah, I have the blues.  They are deep and mysterious, they are shimmery and blue.  They line my lash line or color my waterline.  They are my eyeliner blues!

Yes, I Have Some MAC - MAC Paint Pots

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


I had an urge to go to the MAC store to buy some stuff, mostly Paint Pots ($17.50USD).  I had some before but lost patience with them and gave them to someone who really loved them.  I soon realized that I never gave them a full chance.  Therefore, my urges had to be fulfilled and I bought the following:

Something Special for the Little Princess in Your Life - Little BU Nail Polish

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


When I opened the packet containing these Little BU Nail Polish (£9.95), I practically said, "Awwww"!  Memories flooded my mind of my first dots of polish my mother applied onto my nails.  The deep crimson bottle that magically painted a small part of me, my nails which were important part as a child because it signified a presence of beauty.  Beauty that I could wear to school and stare at on the playground.  I felt SPECIAL!
