Spoiled Pretty Street Style: Dayna In Philadelphia

 Spoiled Pretty Street Style: Dayna In PhiladelphiaBecause I know how much you love themed posts, like Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week and my celebrity articles, I’m adding another one to the roster…

Welcome to Spoiled Pretty Street Style – a new column that shines a spotlight on fashion and beauty trends, and how they’re being interpreted in your neck of the woods.

For the inaugural post, I’m spotlighting Dayna, an impossibly chic Philadelphia lawyer.

In the photo, Dayna is rocking: a Black Halo dress, J. Crew cardigan, Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Heidi Klum earrings, Lagos ring, David Yurman and Charriol bracelets, Louis Vuitton handbag, and Boutique 9 sandals.

SP: What are your top five beauty products for summer?
Dayna: Darphin Cleansing Foam Gel, NARS Bronzing Powder, NARS Blush in Orgasm, Diorshow Black Out Mascara, and Chanel Aqualumiere Lip Gloss in #72 (Bubble Plum)

SP: Are there any celebrities whose style you admire?
Dayna: Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth, Lauren Conrad, Diane Kruger, and Nicole Richie

SP: What items are you currently coveting?
Dayna: Burberry trench coat and Gucci sandals. Oh, and a Chloe Paddington bag. I just don’t think I should be living without it.

SP: What is your #1 beauty tip?
Dayna: Use a heated eyelash curler. They make a travel one at Sephora. It’s amazing.

Lancôme Oscillation Powerbooster Lash Primer

lancome+oscillation+powerbooster Lancôme Oscillation Powerbooster Lash Primer


lancome+oscillation+powerbooster+lash+primer Lancôme Oscillation Powerbooster Lash Primer
There’s a new addition to the Lancôme Oscillation family. Oscillation Powerbooster is “the first vibrating power primer to boost the appearance of natural lash growth. The vibrating power primer enhances lash thickness, density and appearance of length so that naturally occurring lash growth is more visible/noticeable.”

To use, apply Oscillation Powerbooster “to prepare and improve the lash surface, followed by your favorite mascara to maximize your makeup result.” Sounds promising, and I appreciate that Lancôme encourages you pair Powerbooster with your fave mascara – not just Oscillation.

But for a truly wide-eyed look, all you need to do is peep Powerbooster’s hefty price tag: $39. Ouch!

Lancôme Oscillation Powerbooster is a Nordstrom exclusive.

I’d Like To Give A Shout Out To My Sister

diploma+cap+graduation Id Like To Give A Shout Out To My SisterI’d like to give a shout out to my little sis, who graduated from college today. This summer, she’ll start graduate school at Georgetown, and I’m so proud of her!

This afternoon, while driving home from her graduation lunch, I marveled at Lauren’s lush lashes; so I grilled her about what mascara she was wearing. She told me that it was Maybelline’s Colossal Volum’ Express. After I complained that Colossal never gave me such a dramatic look, she let me in on her little secret.

When a mascara doesn’t exactly work out for my sister, she gives it a second chance…this time, using the disposable mascara wands from Sephora. “They make even drugstore mascaras look like a million bucks.”

My sister is so smart, y’all. Look out, Georgetown!

perfectly+defined+mascara Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara“We’ve combined an incredible formula with a unique brush that gets to every single lash – and gives you the most perfect definition imaginable.” -Bobbi Brown

Make the most of every lash with Bobbi Brown’s new Perfectly Defined Mascara. This new formula lengthens, separates and curls lashes for perfect definition with one easy sweep. The secret is a unique, multi-comb brush and equally innovative formula, working together to enhance each and every lash.

The flexible, long-wearing formula doesn’t flake or smudge and stays in place all day long. And best of all, when you’re ready to take it off just use warm water! Available in black, Perfectly Defined Mascara is both Ophthalmologist and Dermatologist tested and is safe for contact wearers.

Benefits:
* Unique multi-comb brush has long bristles to separate, lift and curl lashes, and short bristles to maximize the volume of each lash.

* Formulated with a combination of waxes and flexible film formers that provide excellent adhesion to the lashes and help prevent flaking and smudging.

* Quick drying formula sets lashes immediately after application.

* Has all the benefits of truly long-wearing, waterproof mascara—stands up to sweat, rain, tears—but removes easily with lukewarm water.

Perfectly Defined Mascara retails for $24 and will be at Bobbi Brown counters and at bobbibrown.com in May.
