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

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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search.

‘Member back in May when I scooped y’all about MAC Cosmetics’ clever collabo with Disney? Well, Venomous Villains is almost here and Spoiled Pretty has a sneak peek at the collection.

MAC+Venomous+Villains MAC Venomous VillainsA potion to poison, an apple to bite, a spell to cast…bad never looked so good. A crystal ball of color created from your favorite Disney Venomous Villains, inspired by the three most infamously frosty, fabulous and formidable of Disney’s Dark Ladies…and one dastardly Dr. Facilier. Don’t you love it? A MAC and Disney collaboration to celebrate the dark side in every one of us, in a glamorous sort of way. Who’s the fairest one of all? Four separate mini-collections, in haute animated couture. The incomparable Cruella de Vil and Snow White’s Evil Queen, each featured on one ultra primary displayer Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent and The Princess and the Frog’s Dr. Facilier are both up to no good on their own. Uniquely designed iconic packaging you will kill for, cunning characters and bedeviled beauties that are so alluring, you can’t help but wonder: what would it be like to be one?

Hanae Mori Butterfly Solid Perfume Ring

Posted on by daneen in Featured | Leave a comment

hanae+mori+butterfly+solid+perfume+ring Hanae Mori Butterfly Solid Perfume RingIt’s no secret that Hanae Mori Butterfly is one of my favorite fragrances. In fact, two different versions of this scent occupy permanent residency on my perfume vanity. So when I heard about a new Hanae Mori Butterfly Solid Perfume Ring available at Sephora, I started reaching for my Visa…that is, until I actually saw it.

I love the idea of a solid perfume ring, but this one just looks so uninspired and cheap that the $39 price tag is laughable. For that kind of cash, I would suggest bypassing the .019 oz ring and buying the 5 oz body lotion instead.

For such a sophisticated scent, I’m a little shocked that they would put it in such a bauble that looks like it came out of a Cracker Jack box. Packaging fail.

chanel+tattoo+1 Chanel Temporary TattoosTo celebrate the debut of the newly redesigned, CHANEL launched the highly anticipated Les Trompe L’Oeil de CHANEL Temporary Skin Art online last month.

First seen at the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2010 Ready-to-Wear runway show, Les Trompe L’Oeil de CHANEL Temporary Skin Art was created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup. “For the show, I wanted to play with the CHANEL symbols; pearls, chains and wheat, as well as blossoms and small swallows that announce the arrival of spring,” says Peter Philips. “I focused on a natural makeup look with chic beige tones and a slight touch of rebellion: the tattoos!”

Les Trompe L’Oeil de CHANEL Temporary Skin Art is available for a limited time exclusively at, CHANEL boutiques and CHANEL Makeup Studios.

$75.00 for a package of five sheets. Includes a total of 55 designs.

The Bachelor Wedding Makeup Created by Mally Roncal

Bachelor+Jason+Mesnick+Molly+Malaney+wedding The Bachelor Wedding Makeup Created by Mally RoncalCelebrity Makeup Artist Mally Roncal Creates Molly Malaney’s Waterproof Look for The Bachelor Wedding on ABC

Celebrity makeup artist and Mally Beauty founder Mally Roncal flew to Los Angeles this past weekend to assist in the nuptials between ABC’s The Bachelor couple Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney. The televised event from Warner Horizon Television airs Monday, March 8th on ABC, and Mally worked to develop Molly’s wedding day makeup look and also produce a style for each of her bridesmaids.

With the tsunami warning looming on the West Coast, Mally knew her bulletproof makeup would hold up in inclement weather. “I design high performance products that can stand up to any element from camera lights to a 12-hour work day or even torrential downpour,” said Mally. When a deluge of rain passed through during the ceremony, Mally and her team waited behind the scenes for touch-ups. As Molly and the bridesmaids arrived safely indoors, they were blown away when they realized their makeup didn’t budge – a true testament to Mally’s brand.

To create Molly’s look, Mally used the products below from the Mally Beauty collection.

The NEW 7-Piece Secrets Collection, including:

Volumizing Mascara
Couture Color Custom Blush
Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner in Black Velvet
Cancellation Concealer System
Perfect Prep Eye Primer
Perfect Prep Poreless Face Primer
Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation
Visible Skin Adjustable Coverage Foundation
Evercolor Shadow Stick in Taupe
24/7 Professional Brow Shaping System in Medium Brown
24/7 Professional Blush System in Medium
Finish Line Professional Luminizer
Love Love Love Lashes
