Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

For the second year in a row, online retailers drugstore.com and Beauty.com participated in Village at the Yard, the must-attended gifting lounge to see and be seen at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Drugstore.com created an “Uncommon Giving Lounge” stocked with Sundance Film Festival essentials like cold medicine, pain relievers, lip balms and hand and face lotion, while partner site Beauty.com offered prestige makeup and skincare products.

Celebrities and other VIP guests also had the opportunity to shop the sites on the spot to order items they want to be waiting on their doorstops when they get back home. And, in the spirit of giving, drugstore.com also donated some much needed essentials – including humidifiers, sun care and first aid supplies – to the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps, the world’s largest family of camps for children with serious medical conditions.

This week at Spoiled Pretty, I’m joining forces with drugstore.com and Beauty.com for an Uncommon Giveaway. Five readers will get the celebrity treatment and will win Beauty.com/drugstore.com pharmacy bags, just like the ones gifted to the stars!

Oh Joy: China Glaze Romantique Giveaway!!!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Nail Polish, Nails | 5 Comments

romantique Oh Joy: China Glaze Romantique Giveaway!!!Just in time for Valentine’s Day…

Love is in full bloom! Embark on a love affair this spring with China Glaze Romantique, a stunning new collection of love-inspired shades. Featuring twelve, chrome finished hues, the Romantique collection brings you love in color with sweet nail lacquers in an assortment of harmonious shades for spring. The Romantique collection includes:

china+glaze+romantique+cools Oh Joy: China Glaze Romantique Giveaway!!!
The Cools:
Admire – Lilac Shimmer
Adore – Turquoise Pearl
Awaken – Platinum Silver
Cherish – Shimmering Sea Green
Devotion – Metallic Lavender
Harmony – Brilliant Violet

Emotion – Berry Pink
Delight – Bubblegum Pink
Joy – Mauve Shimmer
Magical – Metallic Bronze
Passion – Gilded Gold
Poetic – Coral with Gold Flecks

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s so refreshing that China Glaze decided against the clichéd Valentine’s Day color palette. If I see one more brand pushing red and pink foil hearts floating in a bottle of clear lacquer, I’m going to scream.

As the name implies, these shades are romantic and whimsical, but the chrometastic finish gives them edge. The formula is pigment-rich, so you really only need one coat; however, metallics tend to highlight every ridge in the nail, so you would be smart to buff and/or apply a base coat, pre-polish.

My current faves are Magical and Joy. Speaking of Joy, I’d better keep this one away from Mama Spoiled Pretty (also named Joy) before she starts begging. Mom loves a purple polish, and she somehow manages to relieve me of almost every plum, grape and eggplanty shade that comes into my possession. But she did “bring me into this world” and “never let me want for anything” – so I suppose I could share.

While we’re on the topic of sharing…I’m pleased to announce that this week, Spoiled Pretty is teaming up with China Glaze for a romantical giveaway. Two sets of Romantique are up for grabs!!!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, February 1st. Two winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 2nd, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!

CORALista Giveaway, Sponsored by Benefit Cosmetics

coralista+benefit+cosmetics CORALista Giveaway, Sponsored by Benefit Cosmetics
When you look in the mirror, does your face look like it could use a vacay?

Take a tropical pleasure trip with Benefit’s CORALista. Sweep this blush onto cheeks to wake up your complexion and put a smile on your face.

On Saturday, CORALista met TIREDista (that would be me) – and I found this warm coral pink blush to be the perfect antidote to the dreaded winter pallor. And yes, even brown girls can look anemic…lately I’ve been looking particularly pale, a la Dead Presidents.

CORALista is oh so flattering and goes on sheer – so you have to be really heavy-handed to overdo it. To apply, swirl the brush in the box & blow off excess. Smile and brush lightly across the apples of your cheeks, starting from the hairline and working in.

CORALista retails for $28…but one of you is gonna get lucky because Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Benefit to give away one CORALista, pro bono.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Benefit CORALista Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, February 1st. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 2nd, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

No Frizz Giveaway – Sponsored by Living Proof

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Hair Styling | 6 Comments

Living+Proof+No+Frizz No Frizz Giveaway   Sponsored by Living Proof
Women everywhere know that even the smallest changes in humidity can have a major effect on how their hair looks and feels. Remarkably, in 30 years of research and development, science has done little to tilt the balance in your (and your hair’s!) favor. Nearly every anti-frizz product on the market today – there are more than 1,000 – treats frizz with silicone, a technology in use for three decades. The problem with silicone is that it doesn’t address the causes of frizz; it doesn’t prevent humidity from entering the hair shaft, and it doesn’t reduce the surface friction on hair. Rather, silicone works by weighing down hair with oil, ultimately allowing humidity to penetrate, leaving it limp and greasy.

So Living Proof scientists set out to apply advanced technology to solve the toughest beauty challenges – and, miraculously, they created a collection of breakthrough, anti-frizz products that deliver results you can see across the room. Besides obliterating frizz, these products also manage to smooth hair without a heavy or greasy feel, impart lasting shine and softness, and repel dirt and oil so you can go longer between shampoos.

No Frizz is available now at livingproof.com, and will be sold (starting in February 2009) at select Sephora stores, Sephora.com, and QVC.

If you read my recent review, you know that these products are the reason why frizz isn’t even a word in my dictionary anymore. And if you’ve been reading Spoiled Pretty for more than a week, you know that I can’t keep a good thing to myself. So I’ve teamed up with Living Proof for a giveaway.

Three readers will get lucky, this go-round:

* One winner (with fine to medium hair) will receive Straight Making No Frizz Styling Spray and Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Spray.

* One winner (with medium to thick hair) will receive Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream and Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Cream.

* One winner (with thick to coarse hair) will receive Straight Making No Frizz Styling Treatment and Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Treatment.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name, mailing address, and hair type (fine to medium, medium to thick, or thick to coarse). The subject line should read “No Frizz Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, January 25th. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, January 26th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.
