Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

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

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.

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!
