[description=I am not your average beauty blogger. Blogging since 2009. Editor of The Unknown Beauty Blog -- Read by the Intelligent! Uncredited, copied, and Plagiarized by the Idiots!]
I am Olivia, a 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 also means, my work is copyrighted and copying them is a copyright infringement! Please, contact me for permission to repost.
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 demeaning. 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? Isn't that a great trait for a brand?
You give my blogger friends sample(s), yet you only give me a press release and expect me to write up a post. You found my blog, prove to me your product is worth all its words with a sample. If my blogging for seven years isn't worth anything to a brand, then the product isn't worth the words printed! Press releases do not get any links!
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.
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! Plagiarism will make you look like an idiot especially when google search and screenshots exist.
