Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish.

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


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

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
When the temperature starts to dip, I start craving sweets. Once in a blue moon, I’ll indulge my sweet tooth with Dark Chocolate M&Ms – but my diet only allows for the occasional dalliance. Fortuitously, my beauty arsenal is stocked with products from Jaqua, which all smell so decadently delish, that I’m tempted to taste. Oh, who am I kidding? I have tasted – and unfort, the flavor doesn’t quite correspond with the scrumptious scent. Anyway, moving on…

I am a huge fan of dessert-smelling bath and body products, and I can say – without hesitation – that Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting offerings take the cake. Literally. I want to lick myself every time I use the Buttercream products (there I go again). Jaqua’s Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Collection, a yummy marriage of juicy raspberry and sweet cream, is the newest addition to the menu. The fragrance is so mouth-watering that I couldn’t bear salivating solo.

So Spoiled Pretty has partnered with Jaqua for a giveaway! One grand prize winner will receive:

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Shower Crème: A rich and creamy shower wash filled with good-for-your skin ingredients such as fruit and aloe extracts, macadamia and evening primrose oils, and vitamins B5, A and E.

* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Sinfully Rich Body Butter: This indulgent, nourishing formula blends serious skincare with a rich raspberry fragrance. Formulated with cocoa butter and natural extracts, the whipped body butter lavishes skin.

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Hand Crème: This luxurious hand crème is packed with the ripe, rich essence of raspberry. Treat your hands to the nourishing indulgence of meadowfoam seed oil, fruit extracts and vitamins A and E – luscious hydrators designed to keep hands soft and pampered all day long.

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Lip Whip: Satisfy your sweet tooth without a single calorie. This delicious, nourishing lip gloss is formulated with vitamins A, E, and C to keep lips soft and kissable.

Two runners-up will win the Raspberry Buttercream Hand Crème and Lip Whip.

You know your retractable lip brush? The cheap gold one where the tip falls off every time you use it? The one that deposits more hairs on your lips than pigment? Yeah, that lip brush. Here’s my advice to you…th’ow it out, as my mother would say.

I mean, why would you keep holding on to a beauty tool that makes your mouth look a hot mess when you can replace it with one that makes you look hot, period?

Beauty addicts, meet Beauty Addicts LipCLICK Retractable Brush. The best lip brush I’ve used – retractable or otherwise, in forever. Hands down.

Chic, sleek and the perfect definition of form meets function. The brush opens to reveal a full size lip brush with just one click – and slides back after use into a fully protected casing. Perfect for on the go application for your busy life!

It’s my holy grail retractable lip brush. Go get you one – and while you’re there, pick up one of Beauty Addicts’ RelationLIPS palettes. I’m partial to ExpressLIPS, a combination of four nudes (buff, rosy-gold, cream and bronze) that make for the inherently sexy Angelina kisser.

Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss

Posted on by daneen in Fabuless Pick of the Week, Lipgloss | 1 Comment

You may love lipgloss. But your lipgloss don’t love you back. You know how it goes. She’s like that flighty girlfriend who shows up at the party, makes a glossy but brief appearance – and before you know it, she’s gone without a trace.

infallible Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip GlossL’Oreal knows the drill…which is why they created Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss, the first longwearing gloss in one step. No touch ups, no top coats, no feathering and no fading – for six hours. No kidding!

I swear it’s not an urban legend because I’ve personally witnessed the miracle. The color clings to lips for hours, never falling flat. Yesterday, my friend gave me a totally unsolicited compliment three hours after I applied Infallible Lip Gloss in Bloom.

The patented ‘Petite Coeur’ applicator allows for precise, flawless application – so you don’t have to worry about going outside of the lines, which can be an issue with the more pigmented of the 16 shades. Besides Bloom, I’m also a big fan of Rebel Red, a gorgeous scarlet that I imagine will flatter a variety of skin tones. And because it’s infallible, the crimson color stays exactly where you put it – meaning you don’t end up with red smeared across your face à la Bette Davis in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss is available at a drugstore near you, and costs less than an Alexander Hamilton.
