The Beauty Addict Blog – not exactly my cup of tea, but sometimes blogs that arenâ€™t down my alley end up being the best ones to review. They lead me to open my eyes and give new things a chance. I was hoping for that as I opened up The Beauty Addict Blog, but my hopes were quickly dashed as I started to read this â€œdaily fix of news, reviews, and moreâ€.
The leopard print background, while a nice color for interior of Tarzanâ€™s car, doesnâ€™t really do a lot for the site visually. Perhaps itâ€™s something thatâ€™s incredibly popular in the fashion industry, but the colors the owner of this site uses become distracting when seen against this pattern. Thankfully, the entries show black text on a white background â€“ a classic combination that never goes out of style.
November 30th is the first post on The Beauty Addict Blog, beginning with a post on shopping at H&M and explaining a few of the ins and outs of the clothing designer that sell their clothes there. Other review-type entries follow on almost a daily basis, ranging on topics from lip gloss to reality TV and from aerobic striptease DVDs to the resurgence of black on the runway.
The typical post is only about a paragraph long and doesnâ€™t contain that much information. People following the fashion or makeup industry may recognize some of the names and brands that are mentioned, but for a neophyte to this topic, I found myself becoming lost as soon as proper nouns started to pop up.
There are a handful of different authors that post on a consistent basis, and each of their writing styles all seem to flow somewhat similarly. Itâ€™s clearly a site where the appropriate research has been done and the amount of knowledge the writers have is well explained. Itâ€™s just not a site for someone that doesnâ€™t have the appropriate background information and/or interest in the world of a beauty addict.
