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

Alice Cosmetics Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Makeup Accessories, Mineral Makeup | 18 Comments

I don’t typically get excited about mineral makeup. Probably because, nowadays, it seems like everyone is introducing a mineral line. So when I say that I’m blown away by Alice Cosmetics, you know I’m telling the truth.

I’m not really a mineral makeup girl. And I’m a klutz. Something about jars of powder just seems too complicated and cumbersome for me. But what I love about Alice Cosmetics is that it’s a line of minerals made for people like me. The rich shades are comparable to colors you would find in a “traditional” line of makeup. Plus, Alice Cosmetics offers innovative brushes and accessories.

alice+cosmetics+mini+miracle+cloth Alice Cosmetics Giveaway!One of the standouts is the Mini Miracle Cloth, which cleans your face without soap! Made of millions of microfibers (each a tiny fraction of the size of a human hair), the Mini Miracle Cloth emulsifies the oil in the skin and then rinses it away along with your makeup. As an added bonus, it aids in the treatment of acne because you can wash using only water, with no added chemicals or irritants.

I am so wild about Alice Cosmetics that I’m partnering with them for a giveaway! Three winners will receive one Buff Palette, three eye shadows (winner’s choice), one foundation (winner’s choice), one Buffer/Veil (winner’s choice), and one eye shadow guard.

alice+cosmetics+buff+palete Alice Cosmetics Giveaway!
The Buff Palette is a more elegant way to load your brush with minerals. Make life easy for yourself and use this palette instead of your jar lid for swirling your brush full of foundation minerals. The palette allows the full brush head to be used and provides the perfect surface for mixing minerals to find your perfect match. Comes in a red velvet pouch with a small companion brush for sweeping excess minerals back into the jar through the “lip.”

alice+cosmetics+009 Alice Cosmetics Giveaway!
All of Alice Cosmetics twenty eye shadows are appropriate for sheer to heavy coverage. And the powders can be used wet for more intense color. As my inner-arm illustrates, the colors are fab (from left to right: Gold Frost, Hunter, Bourbon, Amethyst Gem, and Tawny Star).

alice+cosmetics+tan+foundation Alice Cosmetics Giveaway!
The twelve shades of foundation, the heart of the Alice Cosmetics line, are made to complement all complexions from the palest to the deepest – and can be mixed to create your perfect match.

alice+cosmetics+cool+buffer Alice Cosmetics Giveaway!
Alice Cosmetics Buffers/Veils are translucent powders that give your makeup a perfect finish. These feather-light mineral powders set your foundation and blush…or use alone without foundation for a natural look.

alice+cosmetics+eye+shadow+guard Alice Cosmetics Giveaway!
Last, but certainly not least, is the Eye Shadow Guard. This handy tool helps to keep eye shadow from spilling down below the eye, particularly when applying in heavy layers. It also doubles perfectly as a mascara guard.

Each prize is worth over $80!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Alice Cosmetics Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, June 1st. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, June 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. & Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

Light+Brights Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Good morning, pretties. I was absolutely exhausted yesterday and went to sleep without posting the latest giveaway. My bad.

So without further ado, here’s how we’re spoiling you pretty this week…

The 80’s is back in a big way, inspiring new trends in fashion and beauty. But before you bust out your shoulder pads, leg warmers, and jelly bracelets – be aware that what’s en vogue (and in Vogue) right now is a modern take on 80’s retro glam.

So how do you embrace this trend without looking like a Dynasty reject? Three Custom Color Specialists has the perfect product.

Light Brights (not to be confused with Lite Brite, on of my fave childhood toys) is a collection of moisturizing, balmy stains in DayGlo fluorescent shades. When applied, they let the natural beauty of your lips shine through, while enhancing your pout with a sheer brightness. They can be layered for a fuller coverage, and can also be dabbed on the cheeks for a fresh glow.

Light Brights are available in four rad shades, named after popular NYC dancehalls from the ’80s:

area Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Area is a juicy and bright, yet surprisingly wearable tangerine.

danceteria Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Danceteria is a flirty coral for girls who just wanna have fun.

limelight Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Limelight is a sweet and soft, a pinky peach that pops.

palladium Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Palladium is a hot pink flash of color fit for any rockstar.

This week, we’re giving you the chance to win a tube of your very own. Three lucky readers will receive Light Brights in Limelight.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Totally Tubular Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, May 25th. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, May 26th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning.
