Last month, Trae Bodge and Chad Hayduk, Co-Founders of Three Custom Color Specialists, were the makeup maestros for the JLM Couture Spring 2009 Bridal Show (during New York Bridal Fashion Week).
They created a special new lipgloss just for the showcase called, Just Love Me. It’s not yet available on the website, but Three Custom Color Specialists can take phone orders for it. It’s a gorgeous soft fleshy pink with opal and champagne shimmer (see the photo, left).
The bridal pages on their website are a great resource for brides-to-be. They include color charts and step-by-step bridal makeup application techniques. One piece of advice that you won’t find on the website, but Trae wanted to share with Spoiled Pretty readers is this:
“Brides can tend to over do it or under do it. I recommend seeking an expert to collaborate to achieve the best look for your special day.”
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.
Give ‘em the old razzle dazzle Razzle Dazzle ‘em Give ‘em an act with lots of flash in it And the reaction will be passionate Give ‘em the old hocus pocus Bead and feather ‘em How can they see with sequins in their eyes?
What if your hinges all are rusting? What if, in fact, you’re just disgusting?
Razzle dazzle ‘em And they’ll never catch wise!

NARS Orgasm Nail Polish has made its official debut. But you’ll have to dig a little deep into your pockets because it’s being sold as one-half of the Orgasm Lip Gloss And Nail Polish Gift Set. This duo is comprised of one lipgloss and one nail polish in the cult-classic peachy-pink shimmer shade Orgasm.
Don’t bother trying to shop around. And act fast. This limited-edition set, available only at Sephora, will fly off shelves.
I 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.

Stila has come up with two new ways to wear their cult fave shadow, Kitten.
Silk Eye Shadow Wash is a portable water-based, liquid-to-powder shadow. The universally flattering pink champagne shade is pretty on the lid, and on the brow bone or inside corners of the eyes as a highlighter.
Stila’s new Silk Shimmer Gloss delivers the award-winning golden pink shine to the lips. Enriched with silk proteins and vitamins, this gloss is destined to become a classic in its own right.
