Manna Kadar Cosmetics - Is it Worth a Look?

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


You betcha!  I first mentioned Manna Cosmetics here, a newborn line of cosmetics that really needs your attention.  The products I have tested so far are just as good or even better than the high end lines that spend millions of $$$ in publicity.  Take a look at some of the products that deserve your love and attention.

Nail Art - Shit List Saturday

Blushes by Sue Devitt Beauty

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


After making a snowman with two of my blushes, I figured I should replace them with a better brand.  On my recent cosmetic expedition to ULTA, I noticed the Sue Devitt line had been pillaged.  No wonder, it was 40% off.  I wished I had paid more attention to this line because the two blushes I had bought definitely won me over.

Reviva Labs Makeup Primer

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


Ever feel like Goldilocks of makeup primers? Trying all the different brands but finding one is just too slimy, the other is just too thick, and another just feels like a layer of goo on the skin.  I know that the main reason why I stop using primers is the comfort factor. 

My Nails of the Moment - Orly Lucky Duck and Inglot

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


I haven't posted a nail polish post in awhile because my hands are just wintery dry and my nails are refusing to look decent.  I finally got them to a state where they can handle a coating of color, but they aren't the best at the moment so excuse any little dry skin bits you see.

SyFy Face Off Season 2

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


After yesterday's post, I felt like scrubbing this blog clean or somehow neutralizing the effects of brush licking!  Like I said, I wasn't ousting the person because who knows, someday that YouTuber could become a SFX artist (once the rules of hygiene are instilled in that pigment-ingested brain) and end up on a show like SyFy's Face Off!

Salma Hayek's Nuance Cosmetics

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


I can't say I am thrilled when a celebrity has their name stamped on a cosmetic line, after all am I suppose to believe they really use the stuff?  Do they actually apply the stuff on themselves without the help of a makeup artist?  I know I shouldn't sound negative, just being cynical and slightly crass.  I do credit to Salma for keeping her line in a drugstore--CVS.  Her line becomes easily accessible to many but how does it stand up to other cosmetics?

A Quick Peek at Manna Kadar Cosmetics

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


Just when I thought I could be happy with all the makeup I had, here comes a new line called Manna Cosmetics created by Manna Kadar a beauty industry expert for the past 15 years.  She created a line of simplicity, efficiency, elegance, and freshness.  If any of these descriptions is what you want in makeup, then her cosmetics probably has something for you.

The Unknown Beauty Blog Top Ten Makeup Products of 2011

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


Everyone is doing their list of top products for 2011.  I usually don't do one because I forget what I have bought!  However, since I checked my posts for 2011, I did notice a few that stand out for me.  Here they are.

Define, Divide, and You Shall Conquer - Eye Contour Shadows

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


I do have a motto (I didn't before this post but figured it would be nice to have a catchy one) about eyeshadow application.  Define, divide, and conquer!  This came about when I was teaching dear ol' mum about eye anatomy.  Okay, it wasn't really a deep medical topic, more like a shallow moment on makeup.  No matter, it resulted in an epiphany moment for her--simple eyeshadow application.

I Will Have You Gobsmacked - This is My Favorite Foundation

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

I know I have reviewed many foundations from pro lines to less than pro lines. I do have a drugstore foundation that I haven't reviewed yet.  I really don't need this many foundations because personally I can't stand how it feels on my skin. (Geez, what a confession!)

The Facial Mask for a B-List Beauty Blogger - Kanebo Ayuyu Beauty Facial

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


Being a B-List beauty blogger means you are basically left to fend for your own products as you try to make an impact within the beauty world.  This is hard especially since there is a "budget".  You don't want to spend too much and make a great hyped-up review only to be unnoticed missed by the company when you tweet it.

 Yes, I have another flower on the wall and her name is Lisa from the Beauty Info Zone blog.

Highlight My Life - Tarte and Inglot Highlighters

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


I am pasty all year round, summer I wear bronzer and winter I wear highlighter to light up my face because without it I am one dim bulb!  I believe through osmosis these highlighters work to open up my brain, giving it light allowing me to absorb more information.

Confessions of a B - List Beauty Blogger

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


I realize that my feelings for this blog have changed.  Wow, that sounds like I had a major relationship with it, which is true.  I mean two years of blogging and reviewing products is a commitment.

It's 2012 and I am Still Here - Also More Drugstore Buys

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


Just like a Hollywood marriage that is annulled, with this post I am nullifying what was to be a good long hiatus  I expected to stay away from this blog a bit longer until about next year!  Okay, I am kidding until Fringe started up again which is on the 13th of January.  (Damn, long hiatus for a show that needs continuity for the storyline to be remembered!)  Maybe, my posts will be fewer since I have more requests on my Into the Palette blog.
