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

Perfect Calligraphy And Magical Lip Gloss

Posted on by daneen in Eye Liner, Lipgloss | 2 Comments

calligraphy Perfect Calligraphy And Magical Lip GlossI have both excellent penmanship and a penchant for liquid eyeliner. Which is why I was so enthused to receive a package from Hourglass – containing their new Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner.

The pen is easy to hold and control – which results in a precise, professional-looking line. And the water- and smudge-proof formula dries quickly to prevent streaks and smears. I’m not exaggerating, ladies…once applied, this liner ain’t going nowhere. But for all its staying power, it easily washes off with a few swipes of makeup remover.

Though you might instinctively reach for Cognac (dark brown) or Ebony (black), I dare you to toss Indigo (deep navy blue) into your basket. At first glance, it looks black – but you’ll know the difference when you see how it makes your eyes POP.

Check out my pretty scribbles…

lipgloss Perfect Calligraphy And Magical Lip GlossAnd while we’re on the topic of Hourglass, I had to share my experience with their Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss. I was testing the shade, Origami, while my husband and I were watching TV the other day. After haphazardly slicking the creamy gloss on my bottom lip, Graham looked at me and said, “Wow. That looks really nice.” Huh? I’ve never received an unsolicited lip color compliment from him. Neva eva. And at the time of said compliment, I was only wearing the gloss on one lip! This stuff is magic.

Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz (and Ashlee Simpson sidekick) is opening a punk-themed unisex beauty parlor in his hometown of Chicago.

The Clandestine Industries Salon (clever name, right? wrong.) will open its doors next month. And Ben Mollin from Bravo’s reality TV show ‘Shear Genius’ will serve as the head stylist.

I wonder if the salon will stock Pete’s favorite ‘guyliner,’ MAC Eye Pencil in Ebony.

Here Comes The Bridal Kit – New From Bobbi Brown

bridallook bobbibrown Here Comes The Bridal Kit   New From Bobbi Brown
Every year an average of 2.4 million weddings are performed in the United States. And June is the most popular month for marriages – accounting for 10.8% of weddings.

March may seem somewhat early to start thinking about wedding season. But, trust me – many June brides are already at their wits’ end, trying to decide on a makeup look that will be immortalized in their wedding photos and videos.

Last year at this time, I was preparing for my own nuptials – so I remember what an exciting, yet physically/mentally/emotionally taxing time it can be; I clearly recall agonizing over the makeup I would wear on my wedding day.

bridalkit Here Comes The Bridal Kit   New From Bobbi Brown
This Spring, Bobbi Brown, the bridal beauty authority, has done the hard work and assembled her wedding day must-haves in a new Bridal Kit. Exclusively designed with brides and their bridal parties in mind, the Bridal Kit contains special occasion essentials that flatter all complexions. The sleek white case includes: Ivory Eye Shadow, Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Black No Smudge Mascara, Pink Sugar Shimmer Lip Gloss and a Short Handle Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush.

daneen Here Comes The Bridal Kit   New From Bobbi BrownWith the exception of the eye shadow, I own all of these products – and would highly recommend them to future brides. I’m speaking from experience, as I used a few Bobbi Brown products on my wedding day. Plus, if you were to purchase these products separately, it would cost you more than $100 (not including the cosmetic case) – but the Bridal Kit only costs $75.
