There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Lavender Lip Trend

lilac+lips Lavender Lip Trend

Have you noticed a lotta lavender lips lately? I have. Lady Gaga kicked off the trend in February when she paired a light purple pout with an oversized hair bow. Since then, they’ve appeared sporadically on the Fashion Week runways. But now I can’t help but notice that they’re cropping up everywhere.

New Moon star Christian Serratos (who plays Angela) wore lilac lipstick to the movie’s premiere. And Alicia Keys sports a lavender gloss in her new video, Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart (photo below).

alicia+keys+lipstick Lavender Lip Trend

mac+syrup+lipstick+and+foolishly+fab+plushglass Lavender Lip TrendThe look is like an oxygen-deprived pale pink mouth. To create a lavender lip to compliment my caramel complexion, I use the duo seen at left: MAC Lipstick in Syrup and MAC Plushglass in Foolishly Fab (which has, foolishly, been discontinued).

To steal the look, I recommend a pale pink or lavender lipstick with a sheer lilac gloss on top. For a look that’s more wearable, just a gloss will do the trick. Try: MAC Cremesheen Glass in Ever So Rich, MAC Lustreglass in Flashmode or Morning Glory, or MAC Dazzleglass in Funtabulous.

Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

Posted on by daneen in Lipgloss | Leave a comment

stila+lip+glaze+collection Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection: Holiday Beauty Gift GuideJohn Keats once wrote, “Beauty is truth. Truth is beauty.” Emily Dickinson said, “Beauty is not caused. It is.” What’s my beauty philosophy?

“A woman can never have too many lip glosses. Impossible.”

Which is why I’m kicking off Spoiled Pretty’s 2009 Holiday Beauty Gift Guide with this purty pick. The Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection is a set of eight bite sized glosses that give you non-stop, 1.21 gigawatts of shimmer and shine.

The collection includes four best-selling favorites and four limited edition shades to outfit your lips:

* Starfruit: neutral pink-coral with white pearl
* Kitten: nude pink champagne with golden pearl
* Cranberry: sheer brick red
* Blackberry: deep purple wine
* Plum Fairy: sheer plum with pink pearl
* Candy: sheer pink-coral with subtle rainbow shimmer
* Marmalade: sheer peach with pink and white pearl
* Pinkle Twinkle: sheer mid-tone pink with rainbow shimmer

Every shade in this set is a contender, but I’m crowning Pinkle Twinkle the champ. She K.O.’d me with her sparkly sass and cotton candy scent.

If you have a lip gloss lover in your life, you can’t go wrong by stuffing this in her stocking. Just make sure to pick up two sets, because there’s no way you’ll be able to resist their charm.

The Stila Mini Lip Glaze Collection ($25) is available at Sephora and stilacosmetics.com.

Rihanna’s 20/20 Frosty Nude Lip Look

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Lipgloss, Lipstick, Nail Polish, Nails | Leave a comment

rihanna+20 20+makeup+lip+gloss Rihannas 20/20 Frosty Nude Lip LookOn Friday night, I was among the 8.2 million people who watched Rihanna’s 20/20 interview. But afterwards, while most people were thinking, “Wow…that Rihanna is so brave to publicly discuss such a horrifying personal tragedy” or “That jackass, Chris Brown, deserves whatever is coming to him” – I was thinking, “What products can I use to copy Rihanna’s icy nude lip look?”

So I did what any self-respecting beauty junkie would do. I broke out my lip gloss/lipstick stash and played makeup mad scientist/mixologist. I found that creating Rihanna’s 20/20 look is quite easy to do. All you need is a nude lipstick that is lighter than your complexion, and a silver gloss. Be sure to apply foundation to lips before trying this look, as the foundation will help cancel out any pink in your lips and let the lip color stand alone.

Here are some combos that I think would pass RiRi scrutiny:

Spoiled+Pretty+Rihanna+20 20+Lip+Look Rihannas 20/20 Frosty Nude Lip Look

1) Clinique Different Lipstick in Tenderheart + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
2) MAC Lipstick in Modesty + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
3) Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick in Nude Almond + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
4) Julie Hewett Lipstick in Biba + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
5) Victoria’s Secret Sheer Gloss Stick in Exposed + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
6) Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick in Lady’s Choice + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
7) Urban Decay Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy + MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam
8) This is just to show what MAC Dazzleglass in She-Zam looks like on its own

covergirl+presale CoverGirl Pre Sale: Get On This NOW!

Right now, COVERGIRL is having an exclusive online preview of the NEW Blast collection featuring Smoky ShadowBlast, ShineBlast Lip Gloss and LashBlast Length Mascara. Spoiled Pretty readers can be among the first to try the new products.

LashBlast Length Mascara is currently in stores and online, but Smoky ShadowBlast and ShineBlast Lip Gloss won’t be available until January 2010!

covergirl+Smoky+ShadowBlast CoverGirl Pre Sale: Get On This NOW!COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast ($7.49) is a smoky eye tool plus makeup artist all in one shadow stick. Available in six expertly coordinated shade duos with uniquely desgined ends, Smoky ShadowBlast lets you create a traditional or colorful smoky eye in two easy steps. The new, double-ended stick features expertly coordinated shades and two precision applicator tips – one for base, one for liner/crease – so you can easily apply, smudge and blend shadow to a smoky perfection. “Smoky ShadowBlast takes the fear out of creating a smoky eye; it’s a professional look that’s easy for anyone to create,” says P&G Global Creative Design Director, Pat McGrath.

Here’s what I say…they’re awesome! I got my greedy lil paws on some early samples of the Smoky ShadowBlasts early – and I luvre them. I don’t know why no one thought of this before. Hell, I should have thought of this…it’s ingenious. These chubby crayon-esque shadows are simple to use, and really deliver what they promise – a sexy smoky eye that looks like you had help. Prep the lid with a little primer before applying the color to help sustain the smokiness all day/night. Plus, the lighter shade of the Bronze Fire Smoky ShadowBlast doubles as a totally badass highlighter when applied to my cafe au lait cheekbones.

covergirl+ShineBlast+Lip+Gloss CoverGirl Pre Sale: Get On This NOW!COVERGIRL ShineBlast Lip Gloss ($7.49) has a patented ShineSculpt™ applicator hugs the contours of lips and boasts a tapered tip for precise shaping and sculpting, while 16 shimmering shades deliver a brilliant, glossy finish and perfectly polished pout. The lip hugging applicator delivers more shine in a single swipe than the leading gloss, which results in 4x more noticeable shine vs bare lips.

Wouldn’t these be the best stocking stuffers for your makeup gaga girlfriends? And how awesome is it that you’d be giving them something they won’t be able to buy in stores until 2010?

Just log-on to covergirl.com/blastpresale to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity.
