Now Screening: Spoiled Pretty And The Quest For The Holy Grail

Tonight, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I will be braving the crowds to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I am so wound up. I’ve been waiting 19 years for this! Hopefully, I won’t end up sitting next to someone who likes to shout at the screen. Or someone who pays $10 for a movie ticket, then yaks on her cell phone half of the time.

Anyway, buying our advance tickets got me thinking about the third movie, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade…you know the one where Harrison Ford and Sean Connery go in search of the Holy Grail? Which got me thinking about my holy grail beauty products. Odd train of thought, I know. But you’ll thank me after I introduce you to my new obsession.

Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss is exactly what it sounds like. It hydrates even the most parched pout, but looks and feels like a non-sticky lipgloss. The formula protects with antioxidants and can be worn on bare lips or over lipstick.

It’s available in eight shades, but you really only need Lilac. It’s one of those rare tints that looks gorgeous on everyone…like my pal Amber, who familiarized me with this ab fab gloss.

Update: I give the latest Indy movie a C+. If you’re a fan of the series, check it out. But don’t get your hopes way up. And as luck would have it, I ended up next to a woman who thought out loud (very loud) the entire movie. I totally jinxed myself.

Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!

Good morning, pretties. I was absolutely exhausted yesterday and went to sleep without posting the latest giveaway. My bad.

So without further ado, here’s how we’re spoiling you pretty this week…

The 80’s is back in a big way, inspiring new trends in fashion and beauty. But before you bust out your shoulder pads, leg warmers, and jelly bracelets – be aware that what’s en vogue (and in Vogue) right now is a modern take on 80’s retro glam.

So how do you embrace this trend without looking like a Dynasty reject? Three Custom Color Specialists has the perfect product.

Light Brights (not to be confused with Lite Brite, on of my fave childhood toys) is a collection of moisturizing, balmy stains in DayGlo fluorescent shades. When applied, they let the natural beauty of your lips shine through, while enhancing your pout with a sheer brightness. They can be layered for a fuller coverage, and can also be dabbed on the cheeks for a fresh glow.

Light Brights are available in four rad shades, named after popular NYC dancehalls from the ’80s:

Area is a juicy and bright, yet surprisingly wearable tangerine.

Danceteria is a flirty coral for girls who just wanna have fun.

Limelight is a sweet and soft, a pinky peach that pops.

Palladium is a hot pink flash of color fit for any rockstar.

This week, we’re giving you the chance to win a tube of your very own. Three lucky readers will receive Light Brights in Limelight.

To enter, send an email to Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Totally Tubular Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, May 25th. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, May 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. & Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

Coffee Break and Tea Time For Your Lips

I have a soft spot for lip balms…probably because they were my first foray into the world of makeup. When I was a pre-teen, my mom would buy me Avon lip balms – as reward for good grades, good behavior, and completed chores. I had every imaginable flavor, and I would stockpile them in my Caboodle. They smelled so good that my then two-year-old sister ate my entire Mint Chocolate Chip lip balm. Mister Yuck stickers became a staple in our house that year, but I digress.

Though I’ve grown up a lot since then, I haven’t outgrown my love for lip balm. I’m always looking for new flavors. And while I’m sometimes tempted to buy one of the balms from my youth, I continue to keep my eyes peeled for balms that match my refined, mature tastes. And I found them…

Crazy Rumors offers 12 exotic coffee and tea flavored lip balms that leave your lips moisturized, protected and feeling fantastic. The balms are vegan, packaged in 100% recyclable containers, and never tested on animals.

Perk – Lip Lattes are sure to awaken your senses. Take a whiff and smooth them on… these captivating aromas are what mornings were meant for.

Amaretto: Rich almond and pure natural vanilla makes this aromatic flavor a delight.

Coffee Bean: True to the name, a full-flavored freshly roasted cup of coffee – bold and robust.

Plum Apricot: An amazing fusion of fruits at its finest – rejoice for this rejuvenating scent.

Orange Bergamot: Better known as the world’s famous Earl Grey – a sweet and sophisticated blend of tantalizing citrus fruits.
