When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Everything’s Coming Up Roses: MAC Rose Romance Collection

Posted on by daneen in Featured | Leave a comment
RoseRomance Everythings Coming Up Roses: MAC Rose Romance CollectionWhen it comes to releasing new products, MAC is like the fast and the furious. Every time I turn around, I’m back in love again with their fabulous collections of cosmetic confections.

If you’ve been saving your pennies for a rainy day…brace yourselves and put on your Wellies. Because when it rains, it pours – and MAC is about to unleash a monsoon of gorgeous makeup.

Thanks to the geniuses at MAC, April showers bring a flower-inspired collection, aptly named Rose Romance. Yours truly got a sneak peek at the products (I’ve starred the must haves below) – and trust me…a rose collection by any other brand would not look as chic.

A tradition in haute couture, an enduring Icon of Love and certainly the only flower acceptable to throw on stage at the Met or clench between teeth in a Buenos Aires tango salon, the rose remains beyond reproach. MAC creates a very modern Rose Romance, a lovely new color collection for the summer season.

Velvety petals of exotic orchid, lily, jasmine and peony are teased with a hint of crimson red raspberry and the gentle texture of pink pepper.

NARS Summer 2009 Collection

Posted on by daneen in Featured | Leave a comment

nars+summer+2009 NARS Summer 2009 Collection
“The look for the Summer 2009 collection is sophisticated, but colorful,” says Francois Nars, founder and creative director of NARS cosmetics. That translates to glowing, sun-kissed skin, shimmering peachy-hued lips and high-drama eyes in deep, shimmering tones of metallic-flecked topaz or sparkling azure.

Whether your vision of perfect summer conjures up images of Morocco’s kaleidoscopic bazaars, the pristine Art Deco structures of Ocean Drive or the endless white sand beaches and cerulean waters of a Caribbean island, this season’s vivid yet versatile color palette is the perfect complement.

tropic NARS Summer 2009 CollectionTropic Single Eyeshadow, $22
For the latest eye shadow, there was only one blue François Nars had in mind. “The tropics are always inspiring for me,” says Nars. This lush, silver-flecked teal is a precise image of the ocean’s reflective, rolling waves.

scorching sun NARS Summer 2009 CollectionScorching Sun Duo Eyeshadow, $32
The glazed apricot and radiant orange duo, is designed “to imitate the effect of the burning sun,” according to Nars. The sun-drenched colors allow for surprising wearability. The pair can be blended together to form a rich, burnt orange, or worn in tandem.

irresistiblement NARS Summer 2009 Collection
Irresistiblement Bronzing Powder, $30
Nothing evokes the feeling of summertime quite like bronzed skin. The newest shade, a rich golden terracotta, offers a flattering faux glow when dusted across the areas of the face where the actual sun would hit.

Falbala Lipstick, $24
On the lips, this high-shine bronzy rose lipstick has a sweet, insouciant quality about it.

Outsider Lipstick, $24
This is definitely not your grandmother’s coral. This deeper, glistening variety is a modern take on a time-honored classic.

Belize Lip Gloss, $24
The pale pink mauve sprinkled with specks of gold simulates the color of a Central American sunset and gives nude lips a sultry boost.

Tonga Lipliner Pencil, $20
A creamy, long-wearing lip pencil in a shade of pink amber plays dual roles. Use it traditionally, to outline lips and prevent lipstick from feathering; or color the entire lip with the moisture-rich pencil.

Adelita Nail Polish, $16
This shimmering pearlescent shade of pink, is simultaneously sweet and saucy, the ideal embodiment of feminine strength.

 NARS Summer 2009 Collection
The Summer 2009 collection is currently available at narscosmetics.com.
