I am Olivia, a B-List beauty blogger who has been blogging close to 5 years! I live in the USA. I am not a young fawn but a mature and wise 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 (or wish to be one), 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.
Who likes this blog?
British Beauty Blogger admitted this. I commend her for her brave confession! Anyone else like to confess?
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 you have a shit list?
Yes, I do. This consists of brands and PR which take down my name and address promising me to send samples, only to renege and act like I don't exist.
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 will also be creating some concoction in my cauldron which has a piece of your hair in it. 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:
Four open eyes - "I really liked it."
