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

CORALista Giveaway, Sponsored by Benefit Cosmetics

coralista+benefit+cosmetics CORALista Giveaway, Sponsored by Benefit Cosmetics
When you look in the mirror, does your face look like it could use a vacay?

Take a tropical pleasure trip with Benefit’s CORALista. Sweep this blush onto cheeks to wake up your complexion and put a smile on your face.

On Saturday, CORALista met TIREDista (that would be me) – and I found this warm coral pink blush to be the perfect antidote to the dreaded winter pallor. And yes, even brown girls can look anemic…lately I’ve been looking particularly pale, a la Dead Presidents.

CORALista is oh so flattering and goes on sheer – so you have to be really heavy-handed to overdo it. To apply, swirl the brush in the box & blow off excess. Smile and brush lightly across the apples of your cheeks, starting from the hairline and working in.

CORALista retails for $28…but one of you is gonna get lucky because Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Benefit to give away one CORALista, pro bono.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Benefit CORALista Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, February 1st. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 2nd, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

No Frizz Giveaway – Sponsored by Living Proof

Living+Proof+No+Frizz No Frizz Giveaway   Sponsored by Living Proof
Women everywhere know that even the smallest changes in humidity can have a major effect on how their hair looks and feels. Remarkably, in 30 years of research and development, science has done little to tilt the balance in your (and your hair’s!) favor. Nearly every anti-frizz product on the market today – there are more than 1,000 – treats frizz with silicone, a technology in use for three decades. The problem with silicone is that it doesn’t address the causes of frizz; it doesn’t prevent humidity from entering the hair shaft, and it doesn’t reduce the surface friction on hair. Rather, silicone works by weighing down hair with oil, ultimately allowing humidity to penetrate, leaving it limp and greasy.

So Living Proof scientists set out to apply advanced technology to solve the toughest beauty challenges – and, miraculously, they created a collection of breakthrough, anti-frizz products that deliver results you can see across the room. Besides obliterating frizz, these products also manage to smooth hair without a heavy or greasy feel, impart lasting shine and softness, and repel dirt and oil so you can go longer between shampoos.

No Frizz is available now at livingproof.com, and will be sold (starting in February 2009) at select Sephora stores, Sephora.com, and QVC.

If you read my recent review, you know that these products are the reason why frizz isn’t even a word in my dictionary anymore. And if you’ve been reading Spoiled Pretty for more than a week, you know that I can’t keep a good thing to myself. So I’ve teamed up with Living Proof for a giveaway.

Three readers will get lucky, this go-round:

* One winner (with fine to medium hair) will receive Straight Making No Frizz Styling Spray and Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Spray.

* One winner (with medium to thick hair) will receive Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream and Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Cream.

* One winner (with thick to coarse hair) will receive Straight Making No Frizz Styling Treatment and Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Treatment.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name, mailing address, and hair type (fine to medium, medium to thick, or thick to coarse). The subject line should read “No Frizz Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, January 25th. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, January 26th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

 Krina Handbag Giveaway Winner Writes Back
Melissa, winner of the Krina Handbag Giveaway, recently emailed me to rave about her prize…

My pic doesn’t do it justice….It’s a gorgeous bag and the leather is like buttah! It holds all my necessities with room to spare, and I bring EVERYTHING with me. All the little touches Krina put into this bag are nice – all the tassels are leather, including on the zippered compartment inside and the straps are long and sturdy enough to make carrying the bag comfortable. I also like that the lining is a pretty champagne color (not black), so I can find my things in it. Thanks again to Krina and Daneen of Spoiled Pretty for this incredible giveaway!

Sincerely,
Melissa “Misha” M.

You can be a winner too. Don’t forget to enter this week’s giveaway – you could win FOUR pairs of sandals from Havaianas’ 2009 collection!
