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

covergirl+presale CoverGirl Pre Sale: Get On This NOW!

Right now, COVERGIRL is having an exclusive online preview of the NEW Blast collection featuring Smoky ShadowBlast, ShineBlast Lip Gloss and LashBlast Length Mascara. Spoiled Pretty readers can be among the first to try the new products.

LashBlast Length Mascara is currently in stores and online, but Smoky ShadowBlast and ShineBlast Lip Gloss won’t be available until January 2010!

covergirl+Smoky+ShadowBlast CoverGirl Pre Sale: Get On This NOW!COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast ($7.49) is a smoky eye tool plus makeup artist all in one shadow stick. Available in six expertly coordinated shade duos with uniquely desgined ends, Smoky ShadowBlast lets you create a traditional or colorful smoky eye in two easy steps. The new, double-ended stick features expertly coordinated shades and two precision applicator tips – one for base, one for liner/crease – so you can easily apply, smudge and blend shadow to a smoky perfection. “Smoky ShadowBlast takes the fear out of creating a smoky eye; it’s a professional look that’s easy for anyone to create,” says P&G Global Creative Design Director, Pat McGrath.

Here’s what I say…they’re awesome! I got my greedy lil paws on some early samples of the Smoky ShadowBlasts early – and I luvre them. I don’t know why no one thought of this before. Hell, I should have thought of this…it’s ingenious. These chubby crayon-esque shadows are simple to use, and really deliver what they promise – a sexy smoky eye that looks like you had help. Prep the lid with a little primer before applying the color to help sustain the smokiness all day/night. Plus, the lighter shade of the Bronze Fire Smoky ShadowBlast doubles as a totally badass highlighter when applied to my cafe au lait cheekbones.

covergirl+ShineBlast+Lip+Gloss CoverGirl Pre Sale: Get On This NOW!COVERGIRL ShineBlast Lip Gloss ($7.49) has a patented ShineSculpt™ applicator hugs the contours of lips and boasts a tapered tip for precise shaping and sculpting, while 16 shimmering shades deliver a brilliant, glossy finish and perfectly polished pout. The lip hugging applicator delivers more shine in a single swipe than the leading gloss, which results in 4x more noticeable shine vs bare lips.

Wouldn’t these be the best stocking stuffers for your makeup gaga girlfriends? And how awesome is it that you’d be giving them something they won’t be able to buy in stores until 2010?

Just log-on to covergirl.com/blastpresale to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity.

Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette Hits All The Right Notes

dior+jazz+club+limited+edition+eye+palette Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette Hits All The Right Notes

If you have eyes, I insist that you purchase Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette as soon as said eyes finish reading this review.

The limited edition, all-in-one palette features: cream to powder black liner, brow shaping powder, four eyeshadows and a top coat. The major selling point of this palette (which just so happens to have the chicest packaging eva) is the topcoat. In the tray, it deceivingly looks like shimmering snow, but it applies super sheer.

When you layer it on top of shadow, it goes all Emeril on you. BAM…in an instant, it kicks the color up a notch by imparting a sparkly, iridescence. Use the topcoat with any of the palette’s shadows – or in tandem with the any of the shadows in your makeup arsenal. I swear – it gives old products new life.

Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette and your lids should make beautiful music together. Don’t fight fate. Pick it up now at Nordstom.
