Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

MAC Beauty Powder Blush Review

beautypowderblush MAC Beauty Powder Blush Review
Everytime I get an itch to expand my beauty arsenal, I pick up a new treat for my eyes or lips – and I often forget about my cheeks. I’ve been alternating between the same two blushes for about about a year, so I was overjoyed when MAC debuted their limited-edition Beauty Powder Blushes.

Available in eight gorgeous shades, these silky, smooth blushes offer a high-color payout. A little goes a long way – so gently sweep over cheeks, and use a slightly heavier hand on the apples for a bright pop of color.

MAC generously gifted me with four blushes from the collection. See below for swatches. Joyous has become my personal fave, and I have been applying with the fabulous 169 Angled Brush.

Pink Eyes

Posted on by daneen in Blush, Eye Shadow | Leave a comment

lilydonaldson2 Pink EyesI am absolutely infatuated with Lily Donaldson’s pink eye shadow in the new Spring 2008 ads for Max Mara.

I don’t know if I’m daring enough to rock this look. But for those of you who are, no need to purchase pink eye shadow (though MAC has a great selection). Just find a matte/satin pink blush that compliments your skin tone (I’m a fan of Bobbi Brown blushes), and apply with an eye shadow brush.

Let the shadow be the focus, and leave the rest of your face alone – think natural lashes, bare cheeks, and a nude, understated lip.
