Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection


I'm a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino and Pulp Fiction is one of my top 3 movies of all time (the others being The Sound of Music and The Godfather, Part II).

CoverGirl’s New LashBlast Luxe Mascara

Posted on by daneen in Mascara | 3 Comments

lashblast+luxe+drew+barrymore CoverGirls 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.

kim kardashian Kim Kardashian Fave: Great Lash Mascara
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.
