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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. 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

ZENO HOT SPOT Giveaway!

zeno+hot+spot+2 ZENO HOT SPOT Giveaway!

The makeup artists behind the scenes at Fashion Week can work wonders, but no model wants to be that girl showing up at call time with an unsightly blemish.

It is with this in mind that ZENO launched the ZENO BlemishBuster Hotline. This emergency “skin-tervention” service is available exclusively to models walking the runway at New York Fashion Week. All it takes is a simple text or email, and within six hours, a new ZENO HOT SPOT Blemish Clearing Device will be delivered to her door – charged up and ready to zit zap.

The ZENO HOT SPOT Blemish Clearing Device is the new secret weapon in the war against pimples. This hand-held device uses a single ingredient you can actually pronounce – heat – to destroy the bacteria that causes your pimples. The result: quick and painless pimple relief. Unlike other treatments, HOT SPOT can eliminate or significantly reduce 90% of blemishes within 24 hours.

Intrigued? Want a ZENO HOT SPOT of your own? Of course you do. Models are already blessed with tiny waists, un-cellulite-y thighs, and legs for days…so why should they be the only ones with photo ready and fabulous skin? Spoiled Pretty feels you, which is why I’m partnering with ZENO for a giveaway.

Two lucky readers will win the ZENO HOT SPOT (retail value $39.99), to keep their skin in the clear!

Winner of COVERGIRL Giveaway

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Eye Shadow, Giveaway, Lipgloss | Leave a comment

drew+barrymore+smoky+shadowblast Winner of COVERGIRL GiveawayCongrats to Imani, winner of the COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast and ShineBlast Giveaway!

Smoky ShadowBlast is a smoky eye tool plus makeup artist all in one shadow stick. Available in six shade duos with uniquely designed ends, it lets you create a traditional or colorful smoky eye in two easy steps. One end acts as a base, and the end lines the eye and shades the crease – so you can easily apply, smudge and blend shadow to a smoky perfection. ShineBlast Lip Gloss has a patented ShineSculpt™ applicator that hugs the contours of lips and boasts a tapered tip for precise shaping and sculpting, while 16 sheer shades deliver a brilliant, glossy finish and perfectly polished pout. The lip hugging applicator delivers more shine in a single swipe than the leading gloss, which results in 4x more noticeable shine vs bare lips.

Many thanks to COVERGIRL for sponsoring the giveaway, and spoiling Imani pretty. Stay tuned for the next contest announcement.

drew+barrymore+smoky+shadowblast COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast and ShineBlast Giveaway!When it comes to drugstore makeup, I’m a COVERGIRL girl. Their products are a cosmetics connoisseur’s dream come true: high-quality at a low price point. LashBlast, their volumizing mascara, and Outlast Lipstains are among my makeup faves – and every year, COVERGIRL blows me away with their crafty new concoctions and ingenious formulations.

In 2010, my new COVERGIRL obsessions are Smoky ShadowBlast and ShineBlast Lip Gloss.

Smoky ShadowBlast is a smoky eye tool plus makeup artist all in one shadow stick. Available in six shade duos with uniquely desgined ends, it lets you create a traditional or colorful smoky eye in two easy steps. One end acts as a base, and the end lines the eye and shades the crease – so you can easily apply, smudge and blend shadow to a smoky perfection. I don’t know why no one thought of this before. Hell, I should have thought of this…it’s ingenious. These chubby crayon-esque shadows are simple to use, and really deliver what they promise – a sexy smoky eye that looks like you had help. Prep the lid with a little primer before applying the color to help sustain the smokiness all day/night.

beauty+bloggerati+olay Giveaway: Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Advanced Anti Aging Body Wash
Olay+Total+Effects+7 in 1+Advanced+Anti Aging+Body+Wash+1 Giveaway: Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Advanced Anti Aging Body Wash

Lemme ask you a question. How many anti-aging products are in your bathroom cabinet right now? Okay, humor me by answering another question. Of those anti-aging serums, creams and treatments – how many are for your body and how many are for your face?

A-ha! Exactly as I thought. When it comes to a woman’s appearance, certain parts of the body (like the neck, décolletage, hands, arms and knees) are most prone to visible signs of aging. Yet most women spend a disproportionate amount of time and money caring for their facial skin. This isn’t to say that you shouldn’t take care of your face; it is the first thing that others see when they meet you. But a well-maintained face cannot disguise your age if your body is looking like straight-up Crypt Keeper.

Luckily for you, me and the millions of women who have been putting all of their proverbial eggs in one anti-aging basket, Olay is launching the new Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash. The body wash is an all-in-one product that provides seven age-fighting benefits for the body:

  • Improves elasticity
  • Relieves dryness
  • Deeply moisturizes
  • Brightens dull skin
  • Evens skin tone
  • Smoothes rough skin
  • Minimizes appearance of dry lines

Olay+Total+Effects+7 in 1+Advanced+Anti Aging+Body+Wash+1 Giveaway: Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Advanced Anti Aging Body WashOlay recently conducted a study in which the impact of body skin’s appearance was explored in relations to perception of age. The study concluded that:

  • Regardless of the appearance of facial skin, if body skin is maintained well a woman can look up to 10 years younger;
  • Body skin is just as important as facial skin for positive age perception; and
  • Skin care technology for anti-aging is proven to benefit body skin.

Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash (available in two formulas: Deep Penetrating Moisture and Exfoliate and Replenish) won’t show up in stores until February 2010, but I got my hands on some advanced samples, and they’ve become staples in my shower. I particularly love how the Deep Penetrating Moisture quenches my winter-ravaged skin; the creamy formula and rich lather is a nice treat. The smell is also divine, subtly clinging to the skin post-shower.

This week, one lucky Spoiled Pretty reader will get the chance to shower their way to younger, more radiant skin. Olay will provide the winner with two bottles of the Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash (one of each formula). The winner will write a review of the product, which will be included in an upcoming Spoiled Pretty post.
