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

 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!

This week, Spoiled Pretty is teaming up with Havaianas for a sandalicious giveaway!!!

My sister’s birthday is in July and every year, Havaianas are at the top of her wish list. And she’s not the only one obsessed with this fabulous line of footwear; this past September at New York Fashion Week, people stood in queue – for hours – to score a limited edition pair of Havaianas.

Comfort and fashion rarely mix. Happily, Havaianas are an exception. Dubbed as the world’s best sandal, their more than 40-year old secret rubber formula is responsible for buttery-soft, bouncy, flexible sandals that have blissfully cushioned the feet of many dignitaries and celebrities around the world. These comfortable sole saviors have been paired with flirty skirts, tailored shirts and jeans, helping glamour girls like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Cameron Diaz keep their poise on the streets of Hollywood.

In 2009, Havaianas once again delivers with new designs made for maximum style and comfort. With their signature marshmallow-y comfort and alluring designs, Havaianas continues to give its followers the perfect blend of fashion, function, and fun every woman needs in life!

Spoiled Pretty Teams Up With Benefit Cosmetics for Twilight-Inspired Giveaway

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Lipstick | 6 Comments

twilight+photo Spoiled Pretty Teams Up With Benefit Cosmetics for Twilight Inspired Giveaway
Thanks to my girl, Amber, I’m on board the Twilight train and I don’t want this wild ride to end.

I saw Twilight twice in it’s first week in the theater. I just finished Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the series. My sister rocked my world today when she gave me Twilight: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion for Christmas. This behind-the-scenes guide features full-color photos of the cast, locations, and sets, as well as storyboards, interviews, and much more.

As a Twilight enthusiast/beauty addict, one of the best parts of the book is an interview with Jeanne Van Phue, the movie’s head makeup artist. She talks about her love for makeup, and gives the skinny on happenings behind-the-scenes.

“With makeup you can transform someone, make them look beautiful; you can change the eyebrows and make someone’s eyes look bigger,” says Van Phue. “People don’t realize makeup may be covering a blemish or black-and-blue mark. We’re trained to make people look better, or older, or stressed out. We do all that!”

twilight+edward Spoiled Pretty Teams Up With Benefit Cosmetics for Twilight Inspired Giveaway“Edward is the hero, so I had to make him look the best [out] of everyone…Rob looks drop-dead gorgeous, so I applied his makeup a little thinner. The pale makeup takes the life out of you, so I let a tiny bit of his natural skin tone come through. I made his eyes look more beautiful and put a little lip stain to make him look more appealing. Rob looks different from the others; we wanted him to stand out.”

If you’re a fan of my Twilight-inspired posts, you already know that Van Phue used Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipstick in Ms. Behavin on Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in the film. Well, I had such a positive response to that article that I’m partnering with Benefit for a giveaway – Twilight style.

Five readers will win Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipstick in Ms. Behavin, a mulberry glaze (retail value $18). The innovative formula slides on silky smooth for the softest, sexiest lips ever. Sheer coverage with buildable color…wear as little or as luscious as you like. Lipstick glides on effortlessly with the slant tip for flawless, even coverage.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. The subject line should read “Benefit Twilight Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Wednesday, December 31st. Five winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Thursday, January 1st, 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.

Good luck!
