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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

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

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

My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in Fulfilled

 My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in Fulfilled

When it comes to a MAC products, my sister and I are drawn to them like moths to a flame. So when we visited the Willow Grove Mall a few days ago with Mama Spoiled Pretty, it was no surprise that we couldn’t escape without a visit to the MAC counter at Bloomingdale’s. What was supposed to be swift stopover ended up being a half-hour spending spree.

While Lauren let the makeup artist paint her eyes in hues of blue, I made a beeline for the lip glosses – swatching at least a dozen on my inner arm. And my low-maintenance mom looked on in awe, wondering how she birthed such product-addicted daughters. When Lauren’s makeover was complete, she joined me in playing with the glosses. I asked for her opinion of MAC Plushglass in Fulfilled, which I was seriously considering adding to my collection. “It’s sick,” she exclaimed. So I decided to buy it…and so did she.

 My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in FulfilledThough it’s described as ‘full-blush creamy pink,’ I think that cantaloupe-y cream pink would be more accurate. As you can see in the photo, it wears super sheer – and inflates the lips without the burning sting that accompanies many lip plumpers.

I love this formula and adore this shade. And while my lip gloss collection is incalculable, I definitely feel like a void has been filled by Fulfilled. It will be my go-to non-shimmery gloss when I’m playing up my eyes, but I still want a come-hither kisser.

Um, Excuse Me…There’s A Guy In My Lipgloss

Posted on by daneen in Lipgloss | Leave a comment

urban+decay+pocket+rocket Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My LipglossUrban Decay’s new Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss combines a girl’s two favorite things: guys and gloss. Whether you swoon for a future senator or a tree hugger, one of the many men in this collection is sure to please you. And you might even recognize a few from The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency.*

With the tilt of the tube, your well-dressed man strips down to his undies. Front and rear photos are included for your viewing pleasure, and the flat tube slides right into your pocket.

And, this lip gloss formula is so slick and cushiony you would love it even if it were packaged in a plain ol’ squeezy tube. Each highly pigmented shade varies in opacity and finish, and the crème brûlée flavor will satiate your sweet tooth. The formula contains Hyaluronic Spheres known to improve cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill in lines and wrinkles. The brush applicator is ideal for blending and if you give the tube a rub, pheromones are released into the air to enhance mood and sexual attraction.

Meet the mens…

David Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
David (milky mauve): David is a hard-working man: at work, in the gym, and most importantly, in bed. After a grueling 60-hour week, he still has the energy to come over and put his 110% into you. Undress him to inspect your benefits package.

Doug Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
Doug (medium pink with iridescent sparkle): Who doesn’t love this guy?! Doug is cool. He has a closet full of clothes, a hard drive full of music, and loves making out on the street. Undress him to see why he’s always smiling.

Eric Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
Eric (sheer true red): American born, but schooled abroad, Eric retains many European sensibilities, including Italian bravado, French table manners, and German soccer skills. Undress him for a little Spanish fly.

James Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
James (hot pink with ultraviolet glow): How cute is James?! You have the same favorite color (pink), the same hair (black), and the same size jeans (tight). And yet, he’s still all man. Undress him to see if he’s emo down below, too.

Jesse Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
Jesse (blackberry with warm sparkle): Jesse owns a dingy cave of a bar on the Sunset Strip, pouring whiskey and cheap beer for rock royalty. Undress him to see where his tattoos end and your one-night stand begins.

Julio Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
Julio (white with iridescent sparkle): Is there anything hotter than a hot guy holding a baby? Julio is an amateur chef, a hot dad, and sweet as pie. Undress him and start fantasizing about the babies you’ll make together.

Kirk Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
Kirk (sheer nude): When he isn’t out running the trails with his two chocolate labs, enviro-activist Kirk is finishing his master’s in sustainable architecture. Undress him when you two feel like getting eco-friendly.

Timothy Um, Excuse Me...Theres A Guy In My Lipgloss
Timothy (coral with pink glow): An all-American and future Senator, Timothy is your mother’s dream come true. Skilled at fencing, rugby and sailing, he is valiant and fun. Undress him and he’ll make you the next Jackie O-oh-ohhhhhhh!

*I’m pretty sure that “David” and “Timothy” are actually Dominic and Paul from my Oxygen guilty pleasure.

Urban Jungle: Lise Watier Savanna Dream Spring 2009 Collection

LiseWatier Savanna dreams Urban Jungle: Lise Watier Savanna Dream Spring 2009 Collection
Those who know me will tell you I’m a sucker for anything animal print. Throw a zebra or leopard pattern on anything – doesn’t matter what it is – and I’m pulling out my wallet. So it’s no surprise that I’m wild about Lise Watier’s new spring range, Savanna Dream.

This “exotic and contemporary collection” is inspired by the untamed nature of the African plains and includes eye shadows, bronzing powder, lip pencil, and lipstick…but my favorites, paws down, are the lipgloss and mascara.

lise+watier+wow+gloss+swatch Urban Jungle: Lise Watier Savanna Dream Spring 2009 CollectionGloss WOW in Savanna Dream is a glittery gloss that adds pizazz to any shade of lipstick. Worn alone, it bathes bare lips with a gilded, prismatic effect. Peep the gloss swatch on my hand…doesn’t it just make you wanna purr?

The 24Hrs Glam Mascara uses tube technology to add extreme volume and length to lashes until you’re ready to take it off. Which means, on weekdays around 2:30pm when I inevitably starts rubbing my eyes, I won’t end up looking like Tammy Faye. 24Hrs Glam Mascara is part of the spring collection but will remain as an extension to the Lise Watier mascara line.
