Who am I?
I am Olivia, a Z-List beauty blogger who has been blogging for 7 years! I live in the USA. I was a teen in 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.
You bet! My posts come from my brain. Yes, I wrote the Definitive Guides and the tutorials. I also do most of the graphics and photos (obviously not a pro but it gets the point across). They weren't press releases from PR. This means I will know right away when some narcissistic idiot tries to claim the post for their own. Great content leads to great Google ranking like Featured Snippets!
Who likes this blog?
British Beauty Blogger admitted this. So did Eugenia Weston, creator of Senna Cosmetics and Kandance Westmore of the ever famous Westmores. I commend them for their brave confession! Anyone else like to confess?
Please don't insult me with just a press release in the hopes I will PR your product(s).
Not only is it insulting, it is also humiliating especially when samples are offered to my blogger friends and I only get a press release. My cult would also like my opinion of a product(s). I pretty much get very little chance for makeup samples. This in turn makes me the perfect "tool" (I mean it in a negative connotation) to write up press releases from PR. Let me state, my Definitive Guides are NOT PRESS CLIPPINGS. I wrote those. Let me also state I don’t do press clippings anymore because they don’t help me. They are rarely read by my cult and Google search cares even less because of duplicate content. Why not show some appreciation for a blogger? Or is appreciation an ugly stigma for a beauty brand???
Do I accept samples for review?
Yes, I do. 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.
If you like a post on this blog, please mention it.
Proper blogging etiquette is the rule when you are a blogger/vlogger. No matter how big or small a blogger or vlogger is, appreciation is the best karma!
I am the originator of the Depot with Floss method.
Or depotting makeup with dental floss. If people take credit for this, then they haven't learned blogging etiquette. Enlarge the pic below for proof! Sources for the pix: LiveJournal effloresce_, Cozy Cot forum here and here.
