Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week, Plus a Giveaway!

Last Monday morning, while in NYC for Fashion Week, I got ready and rushed out of my hotel room – forgetting to apply lotion. Quelle horreur, right? Honestly, that doesn’t even begin to cover it because I was on my way to an event sponsored by Vaseline. I mean, how you gonna show up for a Vaseline event with ashy arms?

When I arrived at the event and spied my scaly skin, I was beyond embarrassed. But my awkward situation actually presented a unique opportunity to put Vaseline’s new Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 lotions to the test.

I have to admit that when I squeezed a dollop of the silky formula into my open palm, I was immediately skeptical. I was all, “Child, please. Bring on the grease! If Vaseline believes that this thin lotion is going to quench my Sahara-dry dermis, I’ve got some swamp land in Florida I’d like to sell ’em.” But after smoothing Sheer Infusion on my my skin, I was shocked at how it instantly banished the ash – leaving it hydrated and silky smooth all day.

Though it works like magic, there is actually some hard core science behind Vaseline’s newest breakthrough. Sheer Infusion delivers two times more moisture than leading everyday body lotions – thanks to Stratys-3, a multi-layer moisturizing complex that infuses and suspends moisture across multiple layers of the skin (the top, the core and deep down). The revolutionary patented technology of Stratys-3 enables Sheer Infusion to deliver these layers by combining three powerful ingredients: Glycerol Quat, Glycerin and Hydroxy Ethyl Urea.

Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 is available in three variants:

* Botanical Blend: With botanical cypress extract and eucalyptus extract, this lotion is perfect for those looking for skin soothing benefits. It features a sap boost scent with hints of Fiji apple, Chinese mandarin, sun-drenched water lily, stephanotis flowers, Baltic amber and musk.

*Mineral Renewal (Spoiled Pretty fave!): This formula contains enriching minerals found in healthy skin for when your skin feels tired and depleted. It features a scent of crisp pear, fresh bergamot, white peony, apple blossom and a hint of ginger essence.

* Vitamin Boost: Featuring Vitamins B5 and E, this lotion is ideal for those whose skin needs a boost. The ferngully scent includes a blend of sparkling citrus, red current berries, pear, rhubarb, flowers and spices.

Vaseline Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 is available now at food, drug and mass retailers nationwide in both 6.8 oz bottles ($6.25) and 13.5 oz pump bottles ($8.99). Click here for a coupon. But you can get your hydration on here…for FREE!

That’s right, y’all. Three lucky winners will receive three bottles of each lotion (9 bottles in all)!

To enter the giveaway, send an email to Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Vaseline Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Tuesday, September 29th. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Wednesday, September 30th, 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. residents.

Good luck!

Fall Beauty Trends Giveaway Winner Revealed!

A few weeks ago, I appeared on the NBC 10! Show to school you on fall’s hottest beauty trends and the products you NEED to steal the looks. But I wasn’t content just telling you about the products. Ah naw. I had to, at least, give one of you the opportunity to try the products. That’s just how I do. And now the time has come to announce that lucky winner’s name.

Congrats to Lizelle Abrams! Lizelle will receive:

: The set includes three brow stencils in varying degrees of arch to fit every shape, tweezers, a universally flattering brow pencil, and brow gel – all in a sleek carrying case.

(all six shades!): More precise than a pencil and more forgiving than a liquid, this super-smooth formula offers more control, and buildable coverage than your average liner. The angled liner brush creates a razor sharp line, and the formula lasts all day (or night). Available in six gorgeous colors: Binge (midnight blue), Demolition (brown), Empire (eggplant), Loaded (deep green), Pyrotechnics (iridescent glitter with clear base), and Zero (black).

Goody Resort Glamour Kingston Bobby Slides: These are the next generation of bobby pins. They are some of the most darling bobby pins I’ve ever seen, and come in a selection of shades sure to match your personality, hair color and/or ensemble.

OPI Matte Collection (all six shades!): OPI recently released six of their best-selling shades in non-glossy formulation. The collection includes: Alpine Snow(a fresh crisp white), Gargantuan Green Grape (green kissed by the summer sun), La Paz-itively Hot (a hot pink perfect for when you’re Bo-livia la vida loca), Lincoln Park After Dark (where midnight meets purple), Russian Navy (wait until you see this deep-sea indigo!) and You Don’t Know Jacques! (if you don’t know how trendy this taupe is!).

Air kisses to Revlon, Urban Decay, Goody and OPI for hooking Lizelle up. And all of you not named Lizelle, keep your eyes peeled for your next chance to win some amazing beauty booty.
