About Me


Welcome

Welcome to The Unknown Beauty Blog (TUBB).  Currently, this blog has been running for 7 years!  If you are looking for the usual beauty blog of fantastic reviews of the same PR samples, then this is the wrong place for you.

This blog has been forced out of the mainstream and is considered to be an underground beauty blog (maybe, I should rename it as The Underground Beauty Blog 😉).  This blog doesn't follow but explores beauty.

If you are sick and tired of everyone saying the same thing, then this is your beauty blog.  Hope you enjoy your stay! And, I hope you become part of The Unknown Beauty Blog cult: TUBBsters!!!


Who am I?


I am Olivia, cynical, pragmatic, and sometimes snarky editor of this 7 year old underground (aka Z-List) beauty blog!  I live in the USA if that matters to anyone.  I also was a teen in what was considered a great decade: the 1980's!  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.  


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?





Original content

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 and none of the information written were taken from those.  They are all original!!!  Great content leads to great Google ranking like Featured Snippets!



PR Pet Peeves

It is humiliating especially even after 7 years of beauty blogging 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" to write up press releases from PR. Let me state, my Definitive Guides are NOT PRESS CLIPPINGS nor any part were taken from them.  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???

Press releases do not get any links!


Do I accept samples for review?

Yes, I do. Many are promised but never sent!!!   (Another PR pet peeve, being promised but ignored.) PR samples are always stated.




Are your reviews honest?

As honest as my luck would be to get the chance to review PR products.  If I am promised and never sent the product, I have to assume the brand just wants the positive and instant recognition from the same people on social media.  This has made me lose trust in many brands. (I guess not a great product after all! 😏 ) My opinions are my own (which is really a redundant statement).  I try to write a review in a manner of how the product would be effective in my life.  Not every product can be great!  I don't glorify products into some fantasy image you see on the social media outlets.  Makeup is also worn by everyday people of every age including the mature group.  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! Or you can end up looking like some narcissistic idiot; I guess some people thrive on that nowadays!


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.



Does this blog make money?

No, because I am not going to become rich or noticed with just being a beauty blogger.  Now, if I were just a pretty young face on Instagram, then there would be a chance.  But, I am no longer young!😉 There are no affiliate links either.


Cancelled

This blog is cancelled due to insufficient funding, lack of promised samples, and too much bullshit in the field.
