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!

Carissa’s Bridal Makeup Must-Haves: Day 1

I’m a cosmetics connoisseur. That much is obvious. But I’m no makeup artist. So when I started planning for Bridal Beauty Week, I decided I needed to consult with a professional.

My girl Carissa, writer and editor of Hooked On Beauty, is a professional makeup artist who specializes in weddings. Over her twelve-year career, she’s developed an arsenal of products that are essential for creating that perfect bridal look.

Every day this week, Carissa will share one of her bridal makeup must-haves. Without further ado, here is her first pick.

Carissa says:

Talking, kissing, eating and drinking all contribute to the early death of the lipstick. I always reinforce lips by using Stila’s Lip Rouge in Moue, a felt-tipped magic marker for your lips to provide long-wearing color hours after the gloss is gone.

I’ve Got A Serious Crush On Stila

The problem with most cheek/lip stains is that they’re not as all-purpose as the manufacturer would have you believe. I don’t typically make sweeping generalizations, but I’ve stained my face enough times to know that these products rarely flatter both lips and cheeks.

Well, it seems that Stila is out to prove me wrong with their new Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain. This product is a marvelous multi-tasker. On bare cheeks, the pinky-red shade goes on sheer and blends like a breeze. Cherry Crush also gives your face a natural-looking flush when applied over powder or foundation. On lips, the color clings evenly – so you don’t end up with a mismatched mouth. And as the cherry on top, the formula contains pomegranate and cherry extracts to provide antioxidant protection.

Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain is available at and at Sephora.

Watch this’ll be amazed by how amazing it looks on everyone!

Don’t Hate Me Cuz I Get Free Stuff

One of the perks of having a beauty blog is that I get free products to test and review. So while my trips to the makeup counters, drugstores, and beauty boutiques are less frequent than in the past – once in a while, a product makes such an impression on me that I’ll gladly reach into my wallet. is one such product (I heart the ‘Envious’ shade).

This stain provides a long-lasting wash of color that dries to a semi-matte finish. Swipe it on lips for a “I just ate a popsicle – aren’t I cute?” look. Or layer it for a deep, inky stain.

Lip Envy comes in inkwell-esque packaging, and has a delicate vanilla scent.

Spoiled Pretty tip: after applying Lip Envy (in Envious) to lips, add lip balm, for a natural look; or layer clear gloss on top, for a sexy lacquered effect. Either way, you’ll make every girl in the room pink with envy!

Stila’s Latest Crush

Beauty is just a bowl of cherries with stila’s latest cherry crush lip and cheek stain. This revolutionary multi-tasker not only moisturizes and protects skin with all important anti-oxidants (cherry and pomegranate extracts), but it beautifully reacts to pH levels in your skin and creates a personalized blush and pout. It’s that perfect shade every time. Sweetly scented and lightly flavored, this wonder formula also contains Vitamins A, C and E for further anti-oxidant protection and moisture. Skin looks and feels healthy, never dry or tight. Who could ask for more! This is destined to become your latest Stila crush!
