 New...NARS Multiple Bronzer!!!

Shut the front door! NARS, you are too good to me…

This was my thought upon learning that the iconic Multiple is now available as a bronzer. Like the original Multiple, this oil free, cream-to-powder bronzing stick can be used to contour and add warmth to the eyes, lips, cheeks or body. Plus the new anti-oxidant rich formula strengthens, supports and repairs skin.

Available in three shades: Tuomota (for light to medium complexions w/ golden yellow undertones), Malaysia (for medium to dark complexions with red undertones – great for tanned skin) and Rapa Nui (for dark complexions with red undertones).

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my mitts on the Multiple Bronzer. Malaysia, here I come!

80s Ladies Week: Oh, Cargo…You’re So Fine!

mickey 80s Ladies Week: Oh, Cargo...Youre So Fine!
If you caught yesterday’s installment of 80s Ladies Week, you know that I’m pretty handy with the pom-poms. So it should come as no surprise that one of my childhood idols was singer/choreographer/fellow Philadelphian, Toni Basil.

For today’s 80s-inspired product review, I’m going to steal a line from Toni’s pop music classic…

Oh, Cargo you’re so fine,
You’re so fine you blow my mind.
Hey Cargo!
Hey Cargo!

On the 4th of July, I was invited to a late-evening barbecue not too far from my own apartment. I had to hoof it because there was no chance of finding parking anywhere in the vicinity of the art museum, which serves as backdrop for the city’s Independence Day festivities. The weather was pretty typical for July – hot and humid – with a light drizzle.

cargo 80s Ladies Week: Oh, Cargo...Youre So Fine!
So before heading out the door, I finger painted with Cargo’s Melt-proof 3 in 1 Eye-Cheek-Lip Palette and swiped on some Better-than-waterproof Mascara. Eight city blocks later, I showed up at the party looking perfectly polished – and you know how shiny I can get. And when I returned home late that night, my makeup still looked freshly applied!!!

The Cargo Melt-proof Make-up Collection, which also includes a Melt-proof Bronzer, is limited-edition and costs $39 (retail value is $90). Pick this up immediately, you’ll thank me later. You will be absolutely amazed at the staying power – it’ll blow your mind!

Cargo products are available at Sephora, Amazon.com, and cargocosmetics.com.

80s Ladies Week: You Need Lise Watier Havana Dry Oil Today…Not Tomorrow!

Posted on by daneen in 80s Ladies Week, Bronzer, Tan | 1 Comment

annie1 80s Ladies Week: You Need Lise Watier Havana Dry Oil Today...Not Tomorrow!
Back in the mid-eighties, I wanted to be an orphan. But not just any orphan…little orphan Annie. As a musically-inclined rugrat, I couldn’t imagine anything better than singing and dancing around all day, not going to school, and getting into shenanigans with my best girlfriends.

I would watch my VHS tape recording of Annie incessantly. I watched that movie like it was my J-O-B. And when the tape wasn’t in the VCR, I was playing the soundtrack on my Fisher Price record player. My mom probably cursed the day that she bought that record, because from then on, I was running around the house acting out every scene and practicing the songs like I was Broadway-bound. With a red cheerleading pom-pom perfectly perched on my head, I belted out “Tomorrow” like there was no tomorrow.

Okay, enough of my trip down memory lane. It’s 80s Ladies Week here at Spoiled Pretty and, today, my product review is inspired by my favorite childhood movie. You know how the orphans sang “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile?” Well, while that may be true, this beauty junkie insists you’re never fully dressed without Lise Watier’s new Havana Dry Oil Body Glow.

lisewaiter 80s Ladies Week: You Need Lise Watier Havana Dry Oil Today...Not Tomorrow!Picture it…it’s Friday or Saturday night. You’re getting ready to go out with your man or meet up with your friends. You’re wearing a pair of kitten heels that would make Carrie Bradshaw blush and you’ve got your freakum dress on. But you’re not ready until you dress your arms, legs, and décolletage in Havana Dry Oil. The luxurious texture of this dry oil melts on the skin, and its golden shimmering pearls reflect the light to leave the skin with a luminous tan.

miss+hannigan+and+mr.+bundles 80s Ladies Week: You Need Lise Watier Havana Dry Oil Today...Not Tomorrow!If this stuff was available in the make-believe 1930s, Miss Hannigan would certainly slather some on before her mid-day tryst with Mr. Bundles, the laundry man.

Formulated with a light sunscreen and enriched with emollients and antioxidant Vitamin E, Havana Dry Oil penetrates quickly, leaving skin silky smooth, without any greasy or oily residue…so you don’t “shine like the top of the Chrystler Building.” And the baby oil scent smells heavenly!

Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Bronzer

Posted on by daneen in Bronzer, Celebrities, Kim Kardashian | Leave a comment

kim kardashian Kim Kardashians Favorite Bronzer
Yesterday on her blog, Kim Kardashian answered some tanning questions. Here’s an excerpt, for all of you Kim fans…

Mona asks:

Hey Kim! I’d really love your “sun-kissed” look, what is your favorite make-up bronzer to use on your face/body??

Kim answers:
I love MAC bronzers! I try to use a darker pressed powder like NC45, instead of bronzers with shimmer, because it tends to look to shiny sometimes.
