L’Oreal Paris New York Nudes Collection

LOreal Paris New York Nudes Colour Riche Nail and Le Gloss 1024x761 LOreal Paris New York Nudes Collection

Colour Riche Nail shades (l to r): park ave luncheon, broadway boogie, till the sun comes up, hudson sunset, downtown chic, brownie points. For Colour Riche Le Gloss shades, see below.

As a beauty blogger, sometimes I contact brands to request products I would like to try or products readers have requested that I review. But sometimes, products that I never knew existed – and are a million times better than anything I could’ve asked for – just show up on my doorstep. Today was that kind of day.

I returned from a long day at work to be greeted by a goody box from L’Oreal Paris. Inside was their brand new New York Nudes Collection, a sophisticated limited-edition range that includes six flesh-toned shades of Colour Riche Nail and coordinating Colour Riche Le Gloss. These modern shades – from soft ivory to rich ebony – beautifully complement the unique tonalities of women of all skin tones – creating a flawless nude look.

Whiten Up: Rembrandt Deeply White Toothpaste

Rembrandt DEEPLY WHITE Peroxide Fresh Mint Toothpaste 1024x641 Whiten Up: Rembrandt Deeply White Toothpaste

Hi, my name is Daneen and I am addicted to caffeine. Two years ago, before my son was born, coffee was a luxury, not a necessity. I would occasionally partake in an occasional cup of coffee or indulge myself with a Starbucks treat. But post-Westley, I stop at Wawa every morning to pick up a 16 to 20 oz coffee – just to get my head right before work. My teeth show the signs of my coffee compulsion and they’ve been looking particularly lackluster lately.

Just last month, I was seriously considering visiting my dentist for a professional whitening treatment. But a few weeks ago, Rembrandt sent me their DEEPLY WHITE® + Peroxide Fresh Mint Toothpaste to try. So I put my dentist plans on hold and decided to give Rembrandt’s product a go. (more…)

With the help of L’Oreal Paris, she got the scoop on a few new fall trend tips – including the cat eye, nude lips and a berry pout – and also learned how to do them on herself. Best of all, everything applied on her was long-wear – guaranteed to stay put for hours as she ran off to her next event camera ready.

L’Oreal Paris Never Fail Lacquer Liner and Colour Caresse Luminous Lipcolor

LOreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Laquer Liner 24HR 1024x1024 LOreal Paris Never Fail Lacquer Liner and Colour Caresse Luminous Lipcolor

A few weeks ago, I received a massive package from the kind folks at L’Oreal Paris. Inside was mountain of makeup, skincare and hair products. There’s entirely too many products to get through in this one little post, so this will be the first in a series of L’Oreal Paris product reviews.

First up is my favorite: L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lacquer Liner. The first time I used it, the pot went straight from my review pile right into my makeup bag – and it’s been there ever since. Whether you’re in the market for a new liner or you have a million (like me) and don’t think you need any more, L’Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lacquer Liner is a must-have. It’s the bidness, y’all. And here’s why: (more…)

Bite Me: Bite Beauty Lush Lip Tints

bite beauty lush lip tints Bite Me: Bite Beauty Lush Lip TintsA few weeks ago Bite Beauty sent over two of their new Lush Lip Tints for me to try. They have a bunch of colors that look cute – I got cherry and black currant and I really like both. They are lightly scented, and go on really smooth. They’re hydrating but not super slick or sticky like some glosses can be. The formula also has some staying power, which was nice. And the shades are flattering and not too bright. (more…)

Back To MAC Haul

mac lipsticks Back To MAC Haul

Over the past decade, I’ve amassed a ridiculous lipstick collection. Considering you’re supposed to toss lipstick after two years, I recently embarked upon the task of purging the tubes that are seriously past their shelf life. And although it pained me to part with my babies, there was an upside to my spring cleaning.

I had 24 empty or unloved tubes of MAC lipstick, so I returned them to my favorite local MAC (shout out to the counter at the Willow Grove Mall) as part of the Back to MAC Program. When you return six MAC primary packaging containers to a MAC counter or maccosmetics.com, you receive a free lipstick of your choice. (more…)

Skinnygirl Face and Body Gift Set Giveaway!

bethenny frankel Skinnygirl Face and Body Gift Set Giveaway!Bethenny Frankel is my CBFFIMH (Celebrity Best Friend Forever in My Head) – along with Kathy Griffin and Wendy Williams.

Bethenny and I were introduced back in March of 2008 when The Real Housewives of New York premiered. She quickly won me over with her unpretentious personality and quick wit, and we’ve been BFF’s (again, in my head) ever since. Bethenny and I even had our children around the same time (Bethenny gave birth to Bryn in May of 2010 and Westley arrived in August of that year). I remember even more of a kinship with Bethenny as I watched her juggle marriage and motherhood, on the first season of Bethenny Getting Married?

Now I learn that me and my gal pal have even more in common. The reality-star-turned-entrepreneur has ventured into beauty, launching her Skinnygirl Face and Body collection. (more…)

Makeup Mondays With Mario: Bold Eyes AND Lips

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Bold Eyes AND Lips
Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hi Mario,

Time and time again, I’ve heard the rule that you should never do a bold eye and a bold lip at the same time. But I’ve seen it done in magazines and the red carpet and it looks stunning. Can you recommend some tips for achieving this look in real life?

Thanks!
Tara

Tara,

The trick to achieving the look of a bold eye and bold lip in real life is to do it at the right time and for the right occasion. If not, you just won’t feel confident or comfortable.

To start experimenting with the bold look, use sheer formulas and textures. Instead of black smokey eyes and a matte opaque red lip, pair a sheer red lip color with a strong smokey eye using shimmery bronze shadow. Keep your skin natural and glowing, but make your lashes long and dramatic.

I guarantee you that in no time you will be inspiring other girls to be bold and beautiful, just like you ;-).

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,

Mario
