Want to Sample? Try Beauty Box 5

Recently, I received a box from Beauty Box 5 to review.  This is another sampling program which offers four to five samples per month from various brands including Becca and Makeup Geek.  My box contained neither of these but I am not entirely disappointed either.

Best of the Best Color Eyeshadows-Sugarpill Cosmetics Burning Heart Palette

I first mentioned Sugarpill Cosmetics about two years ago in this post.  I have to admit that when it comes to wearing eyeshadow out in public, I am the boring one and wear mostly neutrals while my mum wears the colors.  Due to this habit, I do have a vast array of colors that I use for eyeliners.  (Like you didn't know I like eyeliners!)  And out of all my colored shadow whether they be a pro brand, cosmetic brand, or drugstore brand; Sugarpill Cosmetics are the best!

The I-Liner Chronicles-The Beach Scene

Okay, so you saw my last post on the beach nails which was a fair attempt at nail art.  I decided to apply these colors in eyeliner form.  Of course, not the actual nail polish colors themselves although I do wish that some of my nail polish colors had eyeliner partners.  (I am disappointed at the lack of eyeliner colors available compared to nail polish.)  I tried to find similar colors in eyeshadow form or mixed colors to make a close match.  Here is what I came up with.

Trying to Nail the Beach

When I was a teen I used to do a lot of nail art.  I can't say I was good at it but I can tell you I had a lot more patience back then.  Today, I just don't have that much patience and wondered why.  I realized when the brain wants to relax; it just refuses to do anything else than watch tv or read a book.  But somehow, this time I have coaxed my brain into doing something on my nails other than just painting them with one color.  I thought about the beach.

Hey Ombré-Look at My Eyeliner

Ombré appears to be the fashionable thing today and it is everywhere from hair to nails.  I for one have no talent when it comes to doing my nails.  Actually, I am just lazy and would rather allow my brain to rest and ogle over the hot looking young guys like Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles on my television.  As for hair, I am slightly baffled because I had that look back in the 80's and it was called growing-out-my-roots.  But no matter, with the economy tanking, and haircolor not being cheap.  Putting a fashionable name on a process will always pique everyone's interest.

My Favorite Hairbrush-Widu

Yes, I am still on Pinterest and yes, this blog is slowing down.  But, I figured I would write about whatever is on my mind.  What popped into my mind was my hairbrush-Widu.  Nothing to get excited about.  It isn't really a want or a need but a "have" product that loses its spotlight because it isn't anything new to me.  I guess you could say it is a holy grail product since I haven't changed brands for about 20 years!  Yikes, that long!

Another Cerebral Moment, Pinterest, Twitter, and Other Boring Stuff On My Mind

First of all, I apologize can get pretty cerebral on my posts.  I do that because it clears my mind a bit.  Second, I wish I could do posts on Kendall and Kylie Jenner (Kardashians) but I am not passionate on the subject of those two.  Third, which brings me to what @SparklecrackHQ wrote recently on her blog:  Blogging 101-Post Your Passion.

Inner Beauty and Outer Beauty

First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone for their comments on my decision to discontinue my other blog.  I really liked that blog and working with all the different people and shapes.  This blog, The Unknown Beauty Blog, will still be up but probably slow down a bit.  (Blame it on Pinterest! I love being there.)  I guess what I liked most about doing the other blog was the different people that volunteered.  It was interesting to see how the camera captured everyone's inner beauty.
