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

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Coming Soon: Viktor & Rolf for Shu Uemura Lashes

shu+uemura+lashes Coming Soon: Viktor & Rolf for Shu Uemura Lashes

How deliciously decadent are these lashes?

Shu Uemura partnered with Viktor & Rolf, the avant-garde designers of the moment, to create their first ever “couture” lashes.

“Shu Uemura eyelashes are almost a fashion accessory and we like that. It’s something you can play with and transform yourself. This appeals to us because the idea of transformation is really important in our own work and in our philosophy.” – Viktor & Rolf

Rhombus (top)

A glance with a certain message, directed to a certain someone is like a precious diamond, something to be treasured.
Wing (middle)
These lashes were created with the concept of the eye becoming a dove, the delicate miniature wings give the eyes an expression of bewilderment, enchantment. The mind wanders and airborne. A messenger of hope.

Swirl (bottom)

The swirl lash is an instant smile, the blink of an eye, a moment of attraction between the wearer and the person who was lucky enough to steal a glance. If ever a statement was true: a moment can last forever.

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to snatch up a pair of these falsies (works of art, really), save them ’til Halloween, and build an entire costume around them.

The limited-edition Viktor & Rolf for Shu Uemura lashes ($95 each) will be available at Shu Uemura boutiques, select retailers and shuuemura-usa.com beginning September 2008.

More Makeup Tips From Kim Kardashian

kim+kardashian+all+about+eyes More Makeup Tips From Kim Kardashian
Women can’t get enough of Kim Kardashian. Considering the public’s fascination with her makeup choices and tips, I’m surprised she’s not working to develop her own line of cosmetics. Anyways, Kim answered some beauty-related fan mail on her website today. This time, it’s all about eyes.

So, as usual, I am re-publishing on Spoiled Pretty – complete with links and spelling corrections. Enjoy, pretties!

Ruby asks:
Kim, do you wear eyelash extensions? I am so amazed by how long and perfect your eyelashes always appear… not to mention that both of your sisters and your mom have the same perfect look.

Kim answers:
No, I do not wear eyelash extensions, Ruby. But I just started using an eyelash grower called Revitalash. It’s amazing! It makes your eyelashes grow soooo much!

Kim [another Kim, not Kim K] asks:
Kim….You, your mom and your sisters eyelashes are ALWAYS beautiful. I wanted to know what brand of falsies you use or where do you guys get them done?

Kim answers:
We wear lashes from a company called Red Cherry, but Khloe never wears them. Kourtney, my mom and I only wear them out at night to events or parties. We have very long eye lashes to start with and the trick is to use two different kinds of mascara and really take your time putting it on!

Mla asks:
Hi Kim! Thanx for giving us your makeup regimen! We really appreciated this, but I wanted to know the color you use on your eyebrows. They always look so perfect! Do you use pencil or what!? Thanx again, and stay nice and cool!

Kim answers:
I use a MAC brown eyeshadow to fill them in a little bit. It’s called Walnut. It works really well for me. If I need to fill in some more, I use the MAC eyebrow pencil called Lingering.

Bambi-Like Lashes

Over at Makeup Loves Me, my girl Marina extols the virtues of Cover Girl LashBlast Mascara. Her review made me realize how much I’ve been taking LashBlast for granted lately.

bambi2 Bambi Like LashesI used to think that it didn’t get any better (or bigger) than DiorShow mascara. But when I met LashBlast, I fell in love – hard and fast. Its phat brush and glossy ink color gives me Bambi-like lashes.

And, as if you needed more convincing – LashBlast is one of Oprah’s favorite things.
