Jessica Alba and her friend/doppelganger stunt double, Taryn Dakha, were recently spotted picking up some beauty essentials at a Toronto Sephora. The star of new box office bomb, Awake, is in Canada shooting The Love Guru with Mike Myers and Justin Timberlake.
A few months ago, Spoiled Pretty was invited to be a part of TotalBeauty.com, a comprehensive website offering unbiased product reviews, interactive editorial content, and connections to the best of the best in beauty.
I am so excited to announce that today, Total Beauty opens its doors to the public – and I can honestly say that it delivers on its promise of being the definitive beauty resource. Women’s Wear Daily loves it and Allure Magazine gave it “a solid A.”
The site’s fantastic features include:
*A community of beauty enthusiasts reviewing their favorite products, sharing tips and techniques and insider scoop on the latest in beauty;
*The most comprehensive product library available anywhere (30,000 products);
*Advice from industry experts, beauty editors, and beauty bloggers;
*Total Beauty Television, featuring instructional videos;
*Coupon codes and discounts;
*Product samples; and
*Personal profiling technology, called “My Beauty Scout”, which recommends products based on your specific beauty needs.
The feature that I’m most excited about is the website’s “Blogs We Love” page. While still in the planning phase, Total Beauty executives scoured more than 400 beauty blogs and chose their 36 favorites – and I’m proud to report that Spoiled Pretty made the cut!!!
I’m am extremely flattered that Total Beauty considers Spoiled Pretty to be among the beauty blogging elite – especially given that it is less than four months old. So on your next visit, please head on over to the “Blogs We Love” page and click on the link back to Spoiled Pretty – all it takes is one click of your mouse to help advance your favorite beauty blog into the top ten.

Would you like to solve the puzzle, or do you need to buy a vowel?
If you’re like me, you’ve got too many beauty products to count – so how can we be expected to know when our treasures have turned to trash? Timestrips are postage stamp-sized labels you stick on your cosmetics, which accurately monitor elapsed time and temperature. Simply activated, the indicator changes color when your makeup is no longer safe to use. So no more guessing if your mascara has met its maker.

I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit this, but I spent my Saturday night watching QVC.
Totally by accident, I stumbled on QVC while channel surfing…and was surprised by the addictive nature of their Beauty Newsmakers Face-to-Face, a special that gives viewers the inside scoop on beauty from the industry’s leading experts.
The program showcased new and bestselling products from Bare Escentuals, Borba, Essie, Kate Somerville, Laura Geller, Mally Roncal, Ojon, Peter Thomas Roth, Smashbox, and Tarte – just to name a few. I was also surprised to learn that many of the show’s featured products are QVC exclusives. For example, RareMinerals Blemish Therapy with Brush won’t be available at Bare Escentuals stores, counters, or on their website until February 2008 – but you can buy it now at QVC.
I usually consider myself immune to home-shopping television, but this particular program was absolutely riveting. The hosts were selling the you-know-what out of those products. I had to restrain myself, several times, from pulling out my credit card and picking up the phone.
