Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


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

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

beyonce+infallible+lipcolor LOreal Infallible Stars Never Fail Lipcolour Giveaway!!!

L’Oréal Paris celebrity spokespeople inspire women everyday to embrace quality, sophistication and, most importantly, to remember that they are worth it. To celebrate these leading ladies and the product that redefined long-wear lipcolor, L’Oréal Paris launches Infallible Stars Never Fail Lipcolour, a new star-studded shade collection of Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour compacts personally selected by Beyoncé, Andie MacDowell, Diane Keaton, Eva Longoria Parker, Kate del Castillo and Linda Evangelista. This diverse group of women represents a range of ages, ethnicities and styles, ensuring all women can find a colour that makes them look and feel infallible.

Infallible Stars Never Fail Lipcolour offers rich, vibrant color, a long-lasting, comfortable finish. The innovative packaging holds two formulas together – the liquid basecoat and the balm topcoat – in a single compact that’s a modern work of art. Though small enough to fit in the tiniest of evening bags, Infallible Lip’s packaging doesn’t compromise on convenience for size. It features a built-in mirror, which makes it possible to apply the lipcolour even on-the-go, a real benefit for transfer-proof lipstick that requires careful application.

mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Summer Smokey Eye and Meltproof Makeup
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!

I want you to know I’m a HUGE fan and your work is PHENOMENAL!! Always flawless!! Well, it’s that time of the year again – it’s so hot and humid. Is a smokey eye or eyeliner too much for the heat? I don’t even know what to do with my face because I feel like it all melts off or smudges, or I may look overdone. Can you share some tips/do’s and dont’s for summer makeup, and an appropriate summer smokey eye?

Thank you so much!

xoxo,
Lauren

summer+meltproof+makeup+bronze+smokey+eye Makeup Mondays With Mario: Summer Smokey Eye and Meltproof MakeupLauren,
Smokey, sultry eyes are great for summer! If you’re having issues with your makeup melting or smudging in the summer heat, try using less products that contain oils – such as eyeliner. Smoke up your eyes using shadows. I love a shimmery copper or bronze on the top lids and smudged along the bottom lashes. A couple coats of mascara will finish the eye. Remember that for a smudge-free, long lasting eye makeup, prime your lids with concealer or foundation first, then set with a bit of loose powder. This trick also allows for flawless blending. Don’t cover your whole face with makeup in the summer months. Instead, try to even out your skin tone with a sheer tinted moisturizer and if needed, follow with a concealer on blemishes. Lip stains are great in hot weather too! Apply once to lips and you literally don’t have to worry about retouching all day.

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

Dynamic Duo: Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Crème

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Hands, Lip Balm, Lips, Lotion | Leave a comment
Votre+Vu+Duette Dynamic Duo: Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Crème

Believe it or not, I wear hardly any makeup on a daily basis. I’m so pressed for time in the mornings that I have neither the 15 minutes nor the energy to spare. But I’m not entirely low-maintenance. I’m never without lip balm and hand cream in my purse.

So I was thrilled when Votre Vu’s Duette recently showed up on my doorstep to review. Duette is a duo of deeply moisturizing lip balm and decadently rich hand crème in one package, and has become a staple in my purse since I first used it.

Flip the first cap on the tube to reveal a nourishing lip balm made from coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax. A deliciously light and natural coconut flavor delivers a guiltless treat to your lips with every application. The cap also contains a clandestine mirror for precise application.

Flip open the second cap to enjoy the Almond Pie Nutrient Rich Luxe Hand Crème. This intoxicating hand cream deeply moisturizes without any greasy residue, and leaves a soft veil of almond and coconut fragrance lingering on the skin. Beautifully absorbed, this special formula was developed to maintain the health, beauty and suppleness of your hands, while delighting your nose with a decadent aroma. Formulated with sunflower, grape seed and jojoba oils combined with moisturizing and healing aloe, wheat proteins and natural sun filters, this sweet treat is one big serving of hydrating heaven. The cream also contains sun filters for UVA/UVB protection to maintain skin tone, while helping protect and keep hands soft, supple and younger looking.

I’m digging on Duette so much that I’m compelled to spread the wealth. So, this week, I’m partnering with Votre Vu for a giveaway. Three readers will win this dynamic duo, which retails for $38.

To enter the giveaway, leave a message in the comments section; make sure to leave your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Tuesday, May 4, 2010. Good luck!
