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

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. 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

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Me Gloss You Long Time

Posted on by daneen in Lipgloss | 4 Comments

cliniquelonglastglosswear Me Gloss You Long Time
I don’t typically gravitate towards long-lasting beauty products. I can appreciate that cosmetics companies are trying to give consumers more bang for their buck. But I’m fickle. I change my mind all of the time, and I don’t like my makeup overstaying its welcome. This is usually the case. But I’ll make an exception for Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15.

As you can see from my amateur swatches below, this product puts the gloss in lipgloss. Check out how it reflects the light!

Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 promises 8 hours of shine – and while I would say 8 hours is a stretch, it’s not too far off. Yesterday, while riding the bus to work, I swiped some on my lips. My mouth was still super-shiny come mid-afternoon. My only criticism is that the taste leaves a bit to be desired. I’m the kind of girl who loves a gloss with some flava – and this one tastes kinda clinical. Sorta old school, if that makes any sense. I think it’s the sunscreen. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

I predict that these lipglosses will become my summer staples. Philadelphia humidity has a tendency to melt everything off of my face. So it’s nice to know these babies will stay put.

MAC Dazzleglass was slated for a May release…but as you can see from the MAC website, this train reached the station a lil early.

This collection of glittery glosses brings to mind the song “Razzle Dazzle,” from the musical Chicago.

What if, in fact, you’re just disgusting?

Razzle dazzle ‘em
And they’ll never catch wise!

My Kim Kardashian Lip Look

The other day, I posted Kim Kardashian’s 10 step makeup routine. I mentioned that my personal recipe for Kim K lips is MAC Lipstick in Syrup plus MAC Plushglass in Foolishly Fab.

mykimdashlipcombo+004 My Kim Kardashian Lip LookI received a few emails asking for swatches. I’m all about serving the people, so here ya go. Click the pic for a larger view.

It’s so gorgeous on…you don’t even know. I would have puckered up, rather than snap pics of my inner arm. But my upper lip is late for a meeting with the wax, if you know what I mean. And no one wants to see that.

Besame Mucho

Posted on by daneen in Lipgloss, Lips, Lipstick | Leave a comment

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” -Gwyneth Paltrow

If you let me loose in a makeup store, chances are I’m going to head for the lipsticks and glosses first. I gravitate towards pinks and neutrals, and don’t usually give reds the time of day. Oh how wrong I’ve been.

besamelipstick Besame MuchoI was recently introduced to Besame’s Enchanting Lipstick in Red Velvet, and it has absolutely has won me over. This might sound odd, but I would compare it to a Jersey gown…while wearing it, you look ultra-feminine and sophisticated – but feel completely comfortable.

Red Velvet is a neutral red, so it’s wearable and compliments a variety of skin tones. The creamy, semi-matte finish ensures an elegant lip look that won’t feather. And I’m impressed by the unique double design – use the tip to line lips before filling in. Genius!

And how gorgeous is the gold bullet packaging? I imagine iconic beauties like Grace Kelly and Dorothy Dandridge carried something like this in their purses. Or perhaps a Bond girl might hide this in her décolletage.

STROKE 02 Red Velvet Great office or everyday red, neutral and not too bright  over Besame MuchoApply straight from the tube for a boldly pigmented pout. Or dab on with your finger for an effortless-looking stain. If you’re more of a gloss gal (I feel ya), swipe Besame’s Enriched Lip Glaze in Crystal on top…it’s non-sticky and smells faintly of coconut.

Kick ass!
