Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. 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

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Eye Liner | 2 Comments

pop+beauty+cat+eyes What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!
I’m no pro makeup artist. But there’s one beauty technique that I’ve got down pat – the elusive cat eye. It requires patience and a steady paw…but once you put in a little practice, a fierce fe-lined eye isn’t far off.

But what if practice doesn’t make perfect? What if your finished product is more Amy (Winehouse) than Angelina (Jolie)? Don’t claw your eyes out just yet. POP Beauty has just the product to produce a purr-fect cat eye.

POP Beauty Cat Eyes is a uniquely slanted eye crayon. Simply press it into the skin and follow the lash line – and it makes the perfect flick at the end, which is key to perfecting the look.
Go from “I don’t know how” to MEOW!

I was particularly impressed by how effortless it was to create a cat eye with this liner. The creamy texture of the crayon simply glides across the skin. And no more worrying about the uniformity of the wings at the outer corner of the eyes…with Cat Eyes, they’re a perfect match – every time.

Nicole+Richie+Cat+Eye What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!
Cat Eyes isn’t deeply pigmented, so if you’re looking to create a Nicole Ritchie-esque eye (I‘m obsessed), here’s what I recommend:

Nicole+Richie+Cat+Eye+Closeup What’s New Pussycat? POP Beauty Cat Eyes!* prep the lid with a primer
* Line the eye with Cat Eyes
* Trace over the line with a liquid liner
* Apply two coats of your favorite volumizing mascara

POP Beauty Cat Eyes comes in three colors (Black Onyx, Black Dahlia, and Black Olive) and is available at Sephora, amazon.com, dermstore.com, and popbeauty.co.uk.

Well, you’re going to feel all salty now that I’m giving you the chance to win the Calista bag in Licorice (black). It’s okay…I forgive you. Unlike Santa, I don’t know (nor do I care) if you’ve been good little girl. But one thing’s for sure…you’re going to look totally bad-ass carrying this beauty of a bag.

Crafted from rich Italian leather, Calista is accented with solid gold-plated hardware with a lacquer coating. A zippered compartment holds all of your beauty essentials, iPod and cell phone pockets keep your electronics organized and easily accessible, and a spacious interior easily accommodates the 5-7 pounds of nonsense that the average woman insists on lugging around.

Bey, You’re Just Too Funky For Me…

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fashion | 2 Comments

sasha+fierce1 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...
It seems that Beyonce – or rather her alter ego, Sasha Fierce – has been channeling Thierry Mugler lately. For the last few weeks – in photo op after photo op – she’s been seen wearing a vaguely familiar, futuristic-looking robotic glove. I couldn’t quite place it…until I came across new promos for her upcoming album – one of which has her sporting the very famous Thierry Mugler Motorcycle Corset from 1992.

sasha+fierce2 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...Both the glove and the corset were featured in George Michael’s Too Funky video, which was directed by Thierry Mugler. I wonder if, in her mission to one-up Rihanna, Beyonce will resurrect any other crazy fashions from that video.

Not beauty related, I realize…but it gives me a reason to share Too Funky with all of you. Enjoy!
