Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

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

LOreal Paris New York Nudes Colour Riche Nail and Le Gloss 1024x761 LOreal Paris New York Nudes Collection

Colour Riche Nail shades (l to r): park ave luncheon, broadway boogie, till the sun comes up, hudson sunset, downtown chic, brownie points. For Colour Riche Le Gloss shades, see below.

As a beauty blogger, sometimes I contact brands to request products I would like to try or products readers have requested that I review. But sometimes, products that I never knew existed – and are a million times better than anything I could’ve asked for – just show up on my doorstep. Today was that kind of day.

I returned from a long day at work to be greeted by a goody box from L’Oreal Paris. Inside was their brand new New York Nudes Collection, a sophisticated limited-edition range that includes six flesh-toned shades of Colour Riche Nail and coordinating Colour Riche Le Gloss. These modern shades – from soft ivory to rich ebony – beautifully complement the unique tonalities of women of all skin tones – creating a flawless nude look.

Whiten Up: Rembrandt Deeply White Toothpaste

Rembrandt DEEPLY WHITE Peroxide Fresh Mint Toothpaste 1024x641 Whiten Up: Rembrandt Deeply White Toothpaste

Hi, my name is Daneen and I am addicted to caffeine. Two years ago, before my son was born, coffee was a luxury, not a necessity. I would occasionally partake in an occasional cup of coffee or indulge myself with a Starbucks treat. But post-Westley, I stop at Wawa every morning to pick up a 16 to 20 oz coffee – just to get my head right before work. My teeth show the signs of my coffee compulsion and they’ve been looking particularly lackluster lately.

Just last month, I was seriously considering visiting my dentist for a professional whitening treatment. But a few weeks ago, Rembrandt sent me their DEEPLY WHITE® + Peroxide Fresh Mint Toothpaste to try. So I put my dentist plans on hold and decided to give Rembrandt’s product a go. CONTINUE READING

On Tuesday, Giuliana Rancic stopped by the L’Oréal Paris 24 Hour Infallible Lounge at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles for some pampering as well as a fall makeup trends tutorial.

With her crazy schedule, Giuliana has mastered the art of stretching her beauty look to extend throughout the day and keep her looking gorgeous long into the night.

With the help of L’Oreal Paris, she got the scoop on a few new fall trend tips – including the cat eye, nude lips and a berry pout – and also learned how to do them on herself. Best of all, everything applied on her was long-wear – guaranteed to stay put for hours as she ran off to her next event camera ready.

You don’t need to be an “ E! News” co-anchor/restaurateur/mother-to-be or travel to Beverly Hills to get glam with L’Oreal Paris. Because, this week, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with them for an AMAZEBALLS giveaway that would make Giuliana proud. CONTINUE READING

LOreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Laquer Liner 24HR 1024x1024 LOreal Paris Never Fail Lacquer Liner and Colour Caresse Luminous Lipcolor

A few weeks ago, I received a massive package from the kind folks at L’Oreal Paris. Inside was mountain of makeup, skincare and hair products. There’s entirely too many products to get through in this one little post, so this will be the first in a series of L’Oreal Paris product reviews.

First up is my favorite: L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lacquer Liner. The first time I used it, the pot went straight from my review pile right into my makeup bag – and it’s been there ever since. Whether you’re in the market for a new liner or you have a million (like me) and don’t think you need any more, L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lacquer Liner is a must-have. It’s the bidness, y’all. And here’s why: CONTINUE READING

Bite Me: Bite Beauty Lush Lip Tints

bite beauty lush lip tints Bite Me: Bite Beauty Lush Lip TintsA few weeks ago Bite Beauty sent over two of their new Lush Lip Tints for me to try. They have a bunch of colors that look cute – I got cherry and black currant and I really like both. They are lightly scented, and go on really smooth. They’re hydrating but not super slick or sticky like some glosses can be. The formula also has some staying power, which was nice. And the shades are flattering and not too bright. CONTINUE READING
