If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

It’s In The Bag: Trina Turk Collabo With Clinique

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Gift With Purchase, Makeup Case | Leave a comment

trina+turk Its In The Bag: Trina Turk Collabo With Clinique
I have to admit that I’m not easily wooed by a gift with purchase. Maybe it’s because most of them are essentially throwaway products, in a multitude of shiteous shades. Or perhaps it’s because I’m an ungrateful heifer who, by virtue of this blog, is spoiled by too much beauty swag.

So when I tell you to mark your calendar for a gift with purchase, you know it’s time to sit up and pay attention.

Clinique has partnered with fashion designer Trina Turk and Nordstrom for the brand’s first-ever designer makeup bag. From November 5-22 (or while supplies last), you can get your paws on Turk’s adorable animal print cosmetic case, filled with Clinique goodies hand-picked by the designer.

“The silver and white mini-tigress print with a bright yellow lining works beautifully with Clinique’s packaging and reflects our own silver and white brand identity,” says Turk.

The gift with purchase includes:

* Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift
* Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser
* Colour Compact with Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Beach Plum/Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher in New Clover
* Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Bamboo Pink
* Lash Doubling Mascara in Black
* Long Last Lipstick in Twilight Nude
* Lipstick case with Mirror

There are no throwaways here. In fact, I would bet cash money that many of these products become your beauty must-haves. And, speaking of money, the Trina Turk gift with purchase is free with your Clinique purchase of $25 or more.

The partnership between Clinique and Trina Turk will last for three seasons, so keep your eyes peeled in the months ahead.

Hanae Had Me At Hello

Posted on by daneen in Fragrance, Gift With Purchase, Perfume | 3 Comments

eau fraiche Hanae Had Me At Hello
This past weekend, I took a trip to the mall…shout-out to KOP (you Philly gals know what I’m talkin’ about). I was in Nordstrom’s cosmetics department for, literally, three minutes before a salesperson had me sold on a bottle of Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau Fraîche.

I usually spend weeks hemming and hawing over a new fragrance, and only break down and buy it once I’ve decided that my pulse points can’t live without it. Well, with Eau Fraîche, it took me approximately 180 seconds to come to this conclusion.

As I reported a few months ago, the latest incarnation of my favorite fragrance is the lightest formulation yet; this variation is airier and perfect for warmer weather. The new top notes of sparking tangerine and grapefruit lend a summery kick, but the fragrance dries down to the familiar notes of red fruits, wild berries and summer woods.

Besides the intoxicating scent, what really convinced me to swipe the plastic was the price tag. A 3.4 oz bottle of this limited-edition fragrance is only $65.

Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau Fraîche is now available at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom*, Bloomingdale’s, select Macy’s and Sephora.

*Receive a Butterfly Body Lotion (0.2 oz.) and deluxe mini Eau de Toilette (0.04 oz.) with any $65 Hanae Mori purchase – online and in-store.

New From Besame: Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara

BesameGingerbread New From Besame: Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara
Gingerbread isn’t something the average person would naturally associate with this time of year. But Besame is about to change all that.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Besame introduces their new Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara. Originally developed in the 30s, it contains only 8 ingredients (paraben-free and allergy-tested) to impart gorgeous and defined lashes. The formula is waterproof, but washes off easily with a mild cleaner. The “gingerbread” refers to the conditioning oils (which won’t irritate eyes and smell heavenly), not the color; food grade colorants give this mascara a deep, glossy black hue.

And the best part is that Gingerbread Mascara’s clump-free formula can be layered to your desired thickness and won’t smear.

besame+set New From Besame: Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara
As a special introductory Mother’s Day Set, Gingerbread Mascara is packaged with Besame’s exclusive Satin Roll and Mini Lip Glaze*. This set is a $40 value for $24, and the promotion runs through May 31st.

*Glaze color may vary.
