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

Miss Oops is On Sale at HauteLook


I love Miss Oops fashion fixers and have been using them for years. If you wear clothes, you NEED to get acquainted with Miss Oops. All of those things that can and do go wrong with your wardrobe can be fixed by Miss Oops problem-solving products. Shirt revealing too much cleavage? Accidentally get a deodorant stain on your top? Are your 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

MAC Love Lace

Posted on by daneen in Featured | Leave a comment

mac+love+lace MAC Love LaceEvery couturier has forever had a fascination with the mysterious and alluring qualities of Lace.

From Evita to Marlene Dietrich to some of the best-dressed of our red-carpet modern screen stars, it’s a long love affair.

This salon-intimate collection is all about a dramatic, intense, smoky eye, with shadows that flash frosty grey to deep blue.

Kohl Power is brought back for a limited time in favorite shades plus a new blackened marine blue. And naturally, 44 Lash adds the depth and desire. Lips stay pleasingly pale and Nail Lacquer in Light Affair adds a hint of danger.

Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

Beauty+Bloggerati+Spotlight Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide
‘Tis the season of giving…so if you haven’t done so already, I highly suggest you check out Spoiled Pretty’s Holiday Beauty Gift Guide.

beauty+stocking+stuffers Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Holiday Beauty Gift GuideTo supplement my gift picks, I recently asked my fellow Daily Makeover Beauty Bloggerati to weigh in on their favorite stocking stuffers under $15, and this is what they had to say:

I love the L’Oreal Clean Artiste Makeup Remover Pen ($11). It cleans up all liquid liner mishaps in a flash and doesn’t irritate my eye area. Best of all, the fact that it’s called Clean Artiste, as opposed to simply Clean Artist, is so Hollywood Montrose from Mannequin. -Beauty Blogging Junkie

I love anything from E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face) for stocking stuffers, because they have entire kits of makeup (for example, a standard/waterproof mascara, eye liner, and eye brightening pencil) for $3. Their individual products are only $1 each, so you could literally fill a stocking with products, without having to go over $10. Is there anything better than that? -Makeover Momma

I love the mini Sephora palettes. They offer such incredible value – this one has 8 eyeshadows, four glosses and a blush for $15! -The Jet Set Girls

I love to give essential beauty items to my step-daughter to stock her up. Yes to Carrots Lip Butter ($3.69), Gillette Venus razor and refill cartridges ($10.99-15), Neutrogena Body Oil ($13) and Pantene Pro-V 5 Minute Strengthening Mask ($4.50) are a few of my favorite stocking stuffers. -A Mom in Red High Heels

Everyone in my family loves the single note essential oils from Aveda ($13) especially the eucalyptus. There are so many ways to use them; but we keep them by the bedside and dab a few drops between our hands and inhale before bedtime. It’s part of our relaxation ritual. -The Jet Set Girls

Nude Lips is an adorable stocking stuffer for all lips – this organic cupuacu and Tahitian vanilla monoi lip balm melts at body temperature ($14) for the prettiest gloss and most kissable lips. -Talking Makeup

What are some of your go-to beauty stocking stuffers?
