weekender+giveaway In The Bag Summer Beauty Giveaway: Weekender
Tis the for weekend getaways. But when you’re packing for your summer sojourn, remember that you’re going aways a weekend, not a lifetime. Yours truly has a penchant for overpacking… and as a repeat offender, I’ve picked up a few tips over the years. Here are a few to help lighten your load and travel like a pro:

* Don’t choose a big bag for a trip that will only last a few short days. If you pick one that’s too large, you’ll be tempted to fill it up. Instead, select a small to mid-sized overnight bag and edit your list of trip essentials.

* Weekend getaways are all about breaking routines and doing something different and fun. When you think of your trip in these terms, you’ll see that it’s not necessary to bring all of the beauty products you typically use on a daily basis.

* When packing, consider your destination, the weather forecast, your planned activities, and the outfits that you’ll be wearing. These factors will help to guide your beauty products choices.

* When it comes to products, think compact and efficient.

ecofriendly+bag+giveaway In The Bag Summer Beauty Giveaway: Eco Friendly Bag
Just because you care about the earth doesn’t mean that you should neglect your appearance. I am a firm believer that being an eco-friendly fashionista isn’t an oxymoron.

Take, for example, Elezar handbags. This summer, Elezar is expanding its collection of handbags to include a new vegan line, Vivi. Vivi bags match the beauty, sophistication and functionality of Elezar’s leather collection while providing stylish women with another fabulous form of expression. Vivi’s lush Ecouture materials mirror the luxury provided by Elezar’s leather bags, but is made from a unique, high-end biodegradable material found in Italy. The look and feel is not only luxurious, but the great functional shapes with a slight edge exude passion – from the old world feel of weaved fencing to the modern day ultra-chic chain handles. Elezar bags keep you organized, polished and always chic.

After I posted my review of NARS Babe the other day, I was innundated with comments and emails, asking me to take photos of me modeling the gloss. And because I’m all about the people, I took my new Nikon CoolPix camera for a test drive – and here’s what I came up with.

NARS+Babe By Popular Demand: Daneen Wearing Nars Babe Lip Gloss

So what’s the verdict?

I’ve Got You Babe

Posted on by daneen in Eye Shadow, Lipgloss | 3 Comments

NARS+Babe+lipgloss Ive Got You BabeWhile accompanying my mom on a recent trip to the Willow Grove Mall, I found myself drawn – like a moth to a flame – to the NARS counter at Bloomingdale’s.

I was beyond thrilled to have finally hunted down the elusive Galapagos Eye Shadow, which was sold out at the first four stores I had visited. Before ringing me up, the saleswoman asked if my order was complete. I said yes, but then my eyes were seduced by the beauty of Babe Lip Gloss. It took me all of 30 seconds to decide that my lips would look delicious drenched in its sheer, fruit-punch red goodness.

I’ve worn Babe every day since, and I’m enamored. Punch drunk love, I call it.

NARS is available at Amazon.com, Bloomingdale’s, Blue Mercury, Lord and Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Sephora.

If NARS Orgasm Doesn’t Work For You, Read This…

Posted on by daneen in Blush, Lip/Cheek Stain, Lipgloss | 5 Comments

nars+orgasm If NARS Orgasm Doesnt Work For You, Read This...
I hate when beauty brands or makeup artists speak in absolutes. When I hear that a product allegedly works on all skin tones, I want to shout, “That’s impossible – nothing works on everyone!” So for a couple of years, I’ve been walking around feeling sorry for myself because Orgasm looks like crap on me. Every time someone gushes about how Orgasm is a must-have for every woman’s makeup bag, I want to throttle them.

Don’t get me wrong…I think it’s an ab fab color. And it does look gorgeous on most women. But on me, it looks like sparkles. The first few times I tried Orgasm, I thought I was doing something wrong. I thought if I applied it differently, magic would happen. So I used a brush. Then a puff. Then my fingers. I applied it lightly. Then heavily. And nuthin’.

Then, when NARS released Orgasm The Multiple, I though that it might be the answer to my Orgasm prayers. But, again…nuthin’. Just sparkles.

nars+torrid If NARS Orgasm Doesnt Work For You, Read This...But guess what…I am happy to report that I’ve finally found my Orgasm. Except it’s called Torrid, and it’s perfect for light brown girls like me. This sexy flush of coral shimmer is exactly what I thought Orgasm would be. So if you’re like me, and have been silently cursing Orgasm all of these years, go and brush your shoulders off. While all of your friends are going on and on about their Orgasm, you’ll be enjoying a Torrid affair.

sandpiper+daredevil If NARS Orgasm Doesnt Work For You, Read This...And while you’re at the NARS counter, check out Sandpiper/Daredevil Lip Gloss/Stain. Sandpiper is a shimmering amber coral gloss (when NARS does shimmer, they don’t mess around) and Daredevil is a deep scarlet stain. It’s great to keep in your purse because it takes you from day to night. Just be careful with the stain.

Make sure to exfoliate your lips in advance, because the stain will highlight dryness and flakes. And when you apply, dot the stain on the middle of the lips and blend outward with your finger (cuz the pigment is potent). “Don’t go all up in there with the stain,” says Jason, my new fave makeup artist at the Walnut Street Blue Mercury store. Thanks for the words of wisdom, Jason!
