About


Who am I?

I am Olivia, a B-List beauty blogger who has been blogging for 5 years!  I live in the USA.  I was a teen in the what was considered a great decade: the 80's!  I am now a wise and mature woman who pretty much knows beauty is not just about some cosmetic item but how one carries their own true beauty.  I don't claim to be some great makeup artist or beauty guru, but I do claim to be a great q-tip (makeup applicator).  I am Jill of all trades and mistress of nothing.

Why aren't your stats higher?

If you judge a blog by stats, then you just think numbers and not quality and content.  My stats have grown without the help of Facebook and many media outlets.  I do have a cult following.  You can always view my stats. 

What is so great about this blog?

I don't just review products.  I like to be informative.  I like to answer the "why's" instead of just giving you the "just because".  This is the reason why I created my other blog Into the Palette.  If you would like to volunteer for it, click here.

If you like a post on this blog, please mention it.

I have had big bloggers/vloggers take credit for something they obviously didn't think up.  How do I know? For one, those bloggers /vloggers aren't as anal retentive and detailed oriented as I have been accused of being! (LOL)

What will happen if I decide to forgo the mention?

Not only will you be on my Shit List, you will be on my Daft List.  Some people already know about the post and where it came from, you aren't the ONLY one on the internet, duh!

Who likes this blog?

British Beauty Blogger admitted this.  I commend her for her brave confession!  Anyone else like to confess?


Does this blog make money?

No, and honestly it probably never will since I hate to start worrying more about my hits and the money I could, should, and would make if I did this and that.  My real life does enough of that for me.

PR friendly?

I am, only if you treat me like a veteran beauty blogger.  I have been blogging close to 5 years.  I know when some brands want a wide-eyed beginner.   

Do I accept samples for review?

Yes, I do.  If I receive them, I always review them!  PR samples are always stated.

Are your reviews honest?

This isn't a happy-go-lucky-everything-is-great-and-beautiful blog.  All products aren't great.  PR samples have the same odds as receiving the same outcome as the products I buy on my own. 

Can I leave insulting comments?

Only if you leave a valid email which can be traced back to you and your IP address.

If I leave an insulting comment, what will happen?

I will be thinking many insulting thoughts about you too.  I also have 3 witches working for me and chanting over a cauldron.  Watch out for karma!  I am a person, not a saint!

Do you have affiliations?

No, I don't. But I do have referral links which allow pennies to be placed towards a future purchase of some beauty product.

Do you have a rating system?

Glad you asked!  Yes, I do.  It is similar to what is used on Hulu and Netflix.  However, instead of using stars, I will use eyes. 

Here is my rating system:

One open eye - "I hated it."


Two open eyes - "I didn't like it".
 
 
 Three open eyes - "I liked it."



Four open eyes - "I really liked it."
 
 

Five open eyes - "I loved it."
