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

 All I Want To Wear Is Trance

Add this to the “why didn’t I think of this” list: the 2 Carat Cup. The handle on this oversized porcelain mug looks like a solitaire diamond ring. Lianne and I discovered this little treasure at a Fashion Week event. It will soon be available on HSN.

I’m also dangerously in love with Lianne’s Trance nail polish from Ginger + Liz. It’s #1 on my shopping list right now.

All I want to wear is…all I want to wear is Trance!

Essie The Art of Spring Collection

essie+art+of+spring+collection Essie The Art of Spring Collection

Inspiration: Spring ushers in a warm, high-spirited bouquet of pretty shades and sultry silhouettes. At the Spring 2010 shows, designers expressed a super-sexy return to elegance with a pop art palette of colors. Body-clinging pieces with flurries of tulle, silk and organza flowed alongside crepe skirts, linen kimonos and shantung gowns in never-ending shades of lilac, rose and cerise.

“When I go to the fashion shows, I don’t just see clothes, I see artistic expression and color,” says Essie Weingarten, founder and president of Essie Cosmetics, Ltd. “Art and fashion go hand in hand, and this season’s collections reminded me of the pop art fashion explosion. My spring color collectionis a reflection of that movement.”

The collection includes a palette of shades created to compliment the essence of Spring:

essie+art+of+spring+collection+van+dgo Essie The Art of Spring Collection
Van D’go: Deliciously ripe melon

essie+art+of+spring+collection+tart+deco Essie The Art of Spring Collection
Tart Deco: Dreamy creamy coral

essie+art+of+spring+collection+noveau+red Essie The Art of Spring Collection
Red Nouveau: Fiery hot red pepper

essie+art+of+spring+collection+pop+art+pink Essie The Art of Spring Collection
Pop Art Pink: Sheer chiffon pink

essie+art+of+spring+collection+lilacism Essie The Art of Spring Collection
Lilacism: Satiny smooth lilac

essie+art+of+spring+collection+neo+whimsical Essie The Art of Spring Collection
Neo Whimsical: Light as a featherrose-plum

For polish to last longer, Essie suggests using a base, like First Base Base Coat and top coat, like Good to Go! – the basecoat prepares the polish to adhere and the top coat seals in color. Also, wait 2 minutes in between color applications so that the polish can set. A few days later, apply Shine-e to refresh polish to a top shine finish.

The Art of Spring collection will be available February 1, 2010.

NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Posted on by daneen in Eye Liner, Eye Shadow, Eyes, Lipgloss, Lips, Lipstick, Nail Polish, Nails | Leave a comment

NARS+Spring+2010+Campaign+Image+ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 CollectionInspired by Catherine Deneuve’s role as Lucille in La Chamade, the NARS Spring 2010 Collection features soft, sexy shades that are as elegant as they are versatile.

“I love Catherine’s makeup look in this movie,” says François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics who chose supermodel Amber Valletta for the campaign. “It’s very sophisticated and bourgeois in a Parisian ’16th Arrondissement’ way. She is the perfect reference for this collection, and apropos for spring, a time to embrace color and get noticed.” The hues are playful yet sophisticated and can be either soft and subtle or bold and daring. As always, the effects are limitless, determined by application, technique, and attitude.

“The shades are soft, sexy and light — like springtime. The formulas are trans-parent, so they allow the skin to look natural and fresh. If a woman wants a more intense look — and I hope she does — the hues can be layered for a bolder effect.”

NARS+Cruising+Lipstick+ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Lipstick in Cruising, $24
This subtle, sexy pink lipstick hue provides a sheer natural long-lasting color. The hydrating formula can be worn alone, or over a NARS Lip Pencil for variations in color and depth. It’s neutral enough to pair perfectly with dramatic eyes, yet alluring enough to attract attention when used on its own.

NARS+Easy+Lover+Lip+Gloss+ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Lip Gloss in Easy Lover, $24
Serious luster meets sexy color in this ultra-sheer hot pink lip gloss. The eye-catching and refreshing springtime hue is perfectly suited to deliver super shiny, sensual lips. An extra dab of it in the center of the bottom lip will accentuate sheen and fullness. It’s impossible to resist.


NARS+Ophelia+Lip+Gloss++ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Lip Gloss in Ophelia, $24
This high-shine strawberry nectar lip gloss is deliciously sweet and seductive. Wear it alone, or over NARS lip products for a more intense effect and color variation. The glossy formula will capture both the light and the attention of admirers.


NARS+Purple+Rain+Nail+Polish+ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Nail Polish in Purple Rain, $16
This intensely gothic purple is a bright and audacious shade destined to become a modern classic. Boasting a long-wearing formula, this intense nail hue vacillates between opposites: rocker or royalty, rebellious or refined.

NARS+D.+Gorgeous+Single+Eyeshadow+ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Single Eyeshadow in D. Gorgeous, $23
This dusty lilac powder eyeshadow yields just a hint of flirtation, but never misses its mark. The long-wearing, crease-resistant matte formula boasts a translucent texture and can be applied sheer, or layered with other NARS products for a bolder result.

NARS+Camargue+Duo+Cream+Eyeshadow+ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Duo Cream Eyeshadow in Camargue, $32
Named for the deep, dancing, sun-cast hues found in the French river delta, this pairing of golden moss and sienna, with multi-colored reflections comes in a soft-blending, glistening cream eyeshadow formula. Wear it alone or layered beneath NARS powder eyeshadows to create more color, depth and intensity.

NARS+Kuala+Lumpur+Duo+Eyeshadow+ +Lo+Res NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Duo Eyeshadow in Kuala Lumpur, $32
Like its Malaysian city namesake, this perfectly harmonized gold infused rose and boysenberry pairing is influenced by contrasts — rich and subtle, traditional yet modern. Wear the two shades separately or together, sheer or layered for a more dramatic effect. Try swiping one shade over the entire eyelid and applying the other just beneath the brow bone to highlight.

 NARS Spring 2010 Collection

Glitter Pencil in Bains Douches, $24
This bright sky blue, silver glitter-infused hue delivers powerful, vibrant color that slides on smooth and remains creamy for blending. Use this glitter pencil layered or alone — to line, accent, highlight or illuminate the eyes. No matter how it’s used, the look will be as ultra-chic as the legendary Parisian nightclub for which it was named.

The Spring 2010 collection will be available on January 15, 2010 at narscosmetics.com.
