My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING
The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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.

Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING
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

For the past six months, I was anxiously counting down the days until September 24th. Not because it was my birthday, but because I had insider information that MAC was re-releasing its Volcanic Ash Exfoliator as part of the Style Black Collection. If you’re a Spoiled Pretty regular, you’ve probably heard me mention it once or twice…or, possibly, a million times. That’s how much I adore this scrub.
I’ve tested an excessive amount of exfoliants, so it takes a serious scrub to even get my attention…and the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator is, hands down, the best EVER. Yes, I said ever – as in since primordial soup ’til today.
Originally released as part of MAC’s Future Earth collection last summer, it became a cult classic. Those who missed out were singing the shoulda woulda coulda’s. And those who got a taste were wishing they could jump in a DeLorean, rev up the Flux Capacitor and go back to June 2008 and snag a lifetime supply. I fell into the second category, rationing my Volcanic Ash Exfoliator like it was a bag of beans on a season of Survivor.
Now that MAC has answered my prayers (and even packaged it in a convenient tube), I’ve stocked up and I suggest you do the same. It’s already sold out on maccosmetics.com, so I suggest you do your best Sherlock Holmes impression and sleuth that sh*t out (hint: Macys.com and Nordstrom.com still have it in stock).
And don’t just buy one lonely tube. Ah, naw. by the time you buy one, try it, and realize you can’t live without it, exfoliating fools will have wiped out the supply. So just trust me on this one, act like you’re at Costco, and buy in bulk.
The Style Black collection also includes these other gems:
Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask, $19.50 Formulated with volcanic ash and natural oils, this ash-black facial mask simultaneously deep-cleanses and treats the skin. When water is added, the mask heats up and the oils instantly lubricate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and clean. Helps keep skin moist, clean, soft and evenly textured.
Mineralize Eye Shadow, $19.50 Cinderfella: Mineralize black with silver pearl (frost) Gilt By Association: Mineralize black with gold bronze pearl (frost) Blue Flame: Mineralize black with blue pearl (frost) Young Punk: Mineralize black with pinkish purple pearl (frost)
