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

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

To commemorate the occasion, The Heart Truth is hosting the Red Dress Collection runway show, which will feature celebrity women (including Heidi Klum, Jenna Fischer, and Leighton Meester) donning one-of-a-kind red dresses by America’s top designers for women’s heart health. Participating designers include Badgley Mischka, Carmen Marc Valvo, Carolina Herrera, Catherine Malandrino, L.A.M.B., Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Monique Lhuillier, Narciso Rodriguez, and Zac Posen.

Glamo%2520group%2520framed%2520new All Purpose Powder
Don’t ya just love when a product does double beauty duty? Me too. That’s why I was so excited to get my hands on Glamo-Glitz by Scarlett Cosmetics.

Glamo-Glitz is a one-of-a-kind product that can be used in seven different ways! These mineral-based loose cosmetic dusts are multi-functional, and are used on eyes, cheeks, lips, body, highlighting and even for mascara. Here’s how it works…

Eye Shadow: Use wet or dry and sweep lightly or dramatically over lid.

Eye Liner: Dip an eyelining brush into water and then into Glamo-Glitz, and sweep along lash line. The ones with glitter look fabulous this way!

Lips: Put petroleum jelly on lips then mix one part water with two parts Glamo-Glitz and dab onto lips.

Mascara: Mix two parts water with one part Glamo-Glitz and put onto lashes with a disposable mascara wand. Need a shocking teal mascara but can’t find it? No problem, make one from your Glamo-Glitz. Do not wear glitter formulas if you have contact lenses, though.

Cheeks: Dip a blush brush into your Glamo-Glitz and swep onto cheeks.

Decollete: Get a big, fat brush and brush over this area – as well as shoulders. Very sexy!

Nail Polish: Adding your choice of Glamo-Glitz color to clear nail polish can make a custom color. It blends smoothly so you don’t have to worry about clumps and the nail polish not drying. Try mixing one that has glitter in it!

In the photo, you can see a few of my favorite Glamo-Glitz shades (from top to bottom – Gypsy, Mombasa, and Pop Star). I wet the powders so that they would photograph more vividly; but please note that they also can be used for a sheer wash of color. That’s why they’re so great – because they’re all-purpose!

Scarlett Cosmetics are sold by select retailers in the U.S., U.K., and Hong Kong. But no matter where you’re from, you can live the Glamo-Glitz life by visiting scarlettcos.com.

VIG (Very Important Gloss)

ogloss VIG (Very Important Gloss)
A few weeks ago, I blogged about mood-changing lip glosses and recommended purchasing Too Faced Mood Swing over Smashbox O-Gloss; my reasoning was that they were essentially the same product and Mood Swing costs less. Well, I take it back. I take it all back.

Yesterday, I received a tube of O-Gloss in the mail (courtesy of Allure Experts) – and I am deeply in love with this gloss. The moment the clear gel hit my lips, it morphed into the most flattering shade of pink…I was very impressed. Rich in antioxidants and botanicals, this non-tacky gloss moisturizes with avocado oil.

O-Gloss has already become a staple in my makeup bag.

Available at Smahbox.com and Sephora.

Shanghai Surprise: NARS Spring 2008

shanghailily Shanghai Surprise: NARS Spring 2008
For Spring, NARS presents Shanghai Lily

The ultimate dichotomy of innocence and seduction, NARS Spring 2008 mystifies with a mélange of hues delicate yet robust, creating the modern hybrid of feminine temptation.

OMG. You are going to love this collection! If you think the colors look good on your computer screen, wait until you see them on your skin (below, you can see the products on my skin)! The velvety shadows glide on like, well, velvet – while Dolce Vita Lip Gloss and Belle de Jour Lip Pencil are classics reinvented in new formulations.

nars+010 Shanghai Surprise: NARS Spring 2008
Here’s what I’m wearing (that’s my arm):

Left column
Alahambra Eye Shadow Duo – golden champagne and metallic rose mist

Middle column
Top: Success Lipstick (burnt sienna semi-matte)
Bottom: Manhunt Lipstick (sheer poppy red)

Right Column
Top: Dolce Vita Lip Gloss (sheer dusty rose)
Middle & Bottom: Stolen Kisses/Pampa Lip Stain Gloss (sparkling caramel pink/nutmeg with a touch of shimmer)

As you can see, these colors truly take you from day to night. There’s nothing garish in this collection – but don’t be fooled; Shanghai Lily is anything but a shrinking violet. This is but a sampling of the products; check the website for a complete list.

Spoiled Pretty Prediction: Like its predecessor, Dolce Vita Lip Gloss is going to fly off shelves – so you’d be wise to get yours sooner rather than later.

Without getting permission from her record label, she “asked hairstylist Ursula Stephen to chop off her hair and dye it raven black in her L.A. hotel room.”

To get the Good Girl Gone Bad look, pick up the following Cover Girl products (Rihanna is the company spokesperson):
