Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. 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.

CoverGirl’s New LashBlast Luxe Mascara

I am the biggest fan of CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara, so my heart skipped a beat when my friend at CoverGirl emailed me to tell me about LashBlast, the next generation. Though I haven’t yet had the pleasure of testing this new product, I can’t keep the details to myself any longer.

lashblast+luxe CoverGirls New LashBlast Luxe MascaraCoverGirl’s original LashBlast Mascara was so popular and successful that they had to find a way to reinvent it and really knock it out of the park. So they started with our LashBlast mascara in blackest black and added a hint of luxurious shimmer in four captivating shades. LashBlast Luxe Mascara helps you achieve dazzling fullness with a few quick strokes of the big brush.

The lightweight formula creates a soft , full fan of lashes. Luxe shimmer metallics added to the formula sit on the surface of each lash to add a hint of attention-grabbing shimmer to each lash with bold volume. And the patented moldtrusion brush s designed to max out each and every lash with intense volume; flexible bristles conform to lashes for amazing coverage and a smooth and gentle application.

The Shade Range:
Black Emerald
Black Platinum
Black Cabernet
Black Royale

The new CoverGirl LashBlast Luxe Mascara sells for $7.99 and will be available at mass-market retail outlets nationwide beginning February 2009, though a little birdie told me that the pretty pink tubes have already been spied in select Target, Walgreens and Walmart stores.

A LashBlast Luxe review is forthcoming, so stay tuned!

QVC Exclusive: Prescriptives Vibrating Mascara!

Posted on by daneen in Mascara | 1 Comment

Prescriptives+MotorEyes+Instant+Action+Volume+Mascara QVC Exclusive: Prescriptives Vibrating Mascara!I love QVC. For beauty shopping, it’s not be as sexy as Sephora – but for deals and exclusives, it’s tough to beat.

For example, Prescriptives has a new vibrating mascara called Prescriptives MotorEyes Instant Action Volume Mascara. With one turn of MotorEyes, the product promises to “instantly turn up volume, color impact, lift, and curl while turning down clumping, spiking, flaking, and application time.”

Here’s the kicker…the mascara is only available at QVC. And you won’t be able to find it anywhere else (not even on the Prescriptives website) until April 15, 2009. Place your order now and it will ship on February 20, 2009.

Head on over to QVC to find out what other new and exclusive beauty products they have in store.

Almost every time I hear Kim Kardashian talk about her favorite beauty products, MAC’s Zoomlash Mascara makes the list. But this celebrity rump shaker doesn’t limit her lashes to zoom-a-zoom-zoom-zoom and a boom-boom. Oh no. On her blog, Kim dishes that sometimes, she likes to do drugstore…

kim mascara Kim Kardashian Fave: Great Lash Mascara“I have tried so many different mascaras and often switch, but right now I am in New Orleans and stopped off at a drug store and bought Maybelline’s Great Lash and love it! It’s all about layering: First I apply one coat then add 2 more. I like volume! This mascara is very affordable and works great! “

Award Winning FOTD

FOTD+2 Award Winning FOTD
Last night, I attended the PRSA/Philadelphia Pepperpot Awards – a celebration of outstanding performance in public relations by practitioners in agencies, industry, government, and non-profit organizations. The American Cancer Society’s Marketing Department (of which I am a member) was nominated for our efforts to pass Clean Indoor Air (smoke-free) legislation in Pennsylvania.

The Pepperpot Award has grown into one of the most coveted awards in the field of public relations, so I pulled out the big guns and went all out with my makeup. It’s a good thing I did, because my team ended up winning first place in the Public Affairs category! Yay us!

And the icing on the cake? Charm City Cakes, the bakery featured in the Food Network series, Ace of Cakes, created a magnificent confection that looked just like an actual pepperpot!

Here are the products I used to create my award-winning look:

Some of you were so intrigued by my Simplest Smoky Eye post that I took some photos, to demonstrate. All I used to achieve this easy eye look is DuWop Shadowlift in Surf and Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara. Note: the color actually looks a tad darker and opaque in real life.

And please excuse my unkempt brows…looks like it’s time to schedule a threading appointment.

Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara

Posted on by daneen in Fabuless Pick of the Week, Lashes, Mascara | 1 Comment

rub+eyes Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara
Lately, I’d sworn off wearing mascara during the work week. You see, around 3:00pm, when my Cosi sandwich-induced stupor sets in, I absentmindedly rub my eyes…then scold myself and mutter expletives under my breath, upon realizing that I have just turned my doe eyes into racoon eyes.

But since being introduced to L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara (say that five times fast), I’ve ended my self-imposed, work week mascara strike. Double Extend Beauty Tubes mimics the look of lash extensions by combining a nourishing base coat with tube technology, once only found in prestige mascaras (Blinc and Fiberwig).

loreal+beauty+tubes+mascara.jpg Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara
For half the price of the aforementioned mascaras, you get lush, lengthened lashes that won’t clump, run, smudge or flake. In fact, the other day, I accidentally fell asleep with my mascara still on (truth: went to bed without washing my face cuz I’m lazy) and when I awoke, my mascara looked ab fab and the color hadn’t migrated one bit.

I’m a gal who’s always running late, so I was initially skeptical about whether or not this 2-step mascara would fit into my free time-deptived lifestyle. So I was very happy to find that while Double Extend Beauty Tubes does involve an additional process, the extra time is minimal…the ‘Nourishing Base Coat’ doesn’t need to dry before you paint on the ‘Ultra Lengthening Tupe Top Coat.’
And here’s the best part…when it comes time to remove the mascara, all you need is warm water. No heavy duty makeup remover or elbow grease required. When washing your face (do as I say, not as I do), simply smooth the tubes away from your lashes with your fingertips, or hold a cotton pad soaked in warm water on the lashes for 30 seconds…the tubes will come off without leaving the surrounding area an inky mess.

The only downside to this mascara (and it’s a very nitpicky one) is the name. Because L’Oreal’s decided against giving this new mascara a totally unique moniker, it could be confused with L’Oreal’s Double Extend Lash Extender & Magnifier Mascara, which features the primer…but not the tube technology. So if you decide to give Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara a try, look for the red and white packaging.

Get ready for the big O – Lancome Oscillation

Posted on by daneen in Lashes, Mascara | Leave a comment

Lancome Oscillation Get ready for the big O   Lancome OscillationGet ready for the big Ô! Ôscillation, Lancôme’s vibrating power mascara, launches nationwide today, Wednesday, October 22nd.

The mascara provides a 360-degree coat around each and every lash, and the brush vibrates at no fewer than 7,000 vibrations per minute for “perfect formula application” that extends, curls, shapes and thickens lashes. The wand is battery-powered and turns on a 3-centimeter motor.

This is one of the most anticipated mascaras ever and for a good reason.

The key to great results with Ôscillation is a certain application technique:
* Apply in slow, straight and steady strokes.
* Don’t zig-zag and don’t wiggle!
* Don’t overpump the wand. There’s plenty of product on there for multiple coats.
* If at first you don’t succeed…don’t give up! Ôscillation takes a few tries to get the hang of it.
* Ôscillation is great for the lower lashes, so don’t forget to apply there.

Once you get your application method down, there are a few tricks you can try:
* Apply and then go back and re-apply to the tips alone. You can get amazing length.
* Put the wand right at the base of the lashes, activate the vibrating action and hold in place for a few seconds. Then slowly sweep to the tips of the lashes. It gives you beautiful thickness at the base and lots of oomph.

Ôscillation is available at all Lancôme counters and boutiques and lancome-usa.com.
