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

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.

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.

jc1 So Glad I Could Help!Today, Sarah G wrote, thanking me for posting about my J. Crew outlet find. Sarah writes:

Hi Daneen! I just wanted to say thank you so, so much for posting about the steal you got on that adorable little J Crew number! I live in Portland, OR, so I wasn’t sure if the inventory or sales would be the same, but I had to check. So I jumped in my car and drove the hour to the good outlet mall and lo and behold… they had it! And it was 30% off! They had it in black, navy and aqua blue. I got both black and aqua. The aqua will make a gorge cover up come swim season! Thank you again for posting… You totally made my day!!!

So glad I could help, Sarah!
