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.

Neutrogena announced today that Emmy nominated actress (and my homegirl) Kerry Washington has joined the brand’s current roster of talent. Smart move, right? I mean…just look at this goddess’s face!

Not only will Kerry be one of the faces for Neutrogena – but for the first time ever, she will also serve as a “creative consultant” to the brand, sharing her valuable insights with the marketing, scientific, and retail teams.

“The more I learned about the company’s values, guiding principles, and commitment to quality, the more I realized that Neutrogena is so much more than your average beauty company.   I knew I wanted to be a part of a company that is helping to make a difference in people’s lives.  As a creative consultant, I will be able to have a real voice inside this amazing company, which is a tremendously exciting endeavor,” says Washington.

“Neutrogena is about making a difference in women’s lives. We partnered with Kerry because she’s an inspiration to women everywhere and shares this same value system.  Her work ethic, charity commitments and, of course, her ability to balance it all while also having beautiful, healthy skin, made this an obvious fit.  She is truly aspirational to everyone,” says Michelle Freyre, General Manager, Neutrogena.

Washington joins beauty icons Jennifer Garner, Julie Bowen, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Emma Roberts, Diane Lane and Sandra Echeverria as a member of the Neutrogena family.

MAC & Disney Team Up For Venomous Villains Collection!!!

disney+villains MAC & Disney Team Up For Venomous Villains Collection!!!


This just in from WWD:

MAC Cosmetics is teaming up with Disney to create a limited edition color collection, intended to launch globally in late September in all MAC locations. The products will feature four Disney characters, on which the brand is keeping mum at the moment — although with a collection name of Venomous Villains, it is assumed that we’re not talking Donald Duck and Minnie Mouse here. Lipstick, powder, lip gloss and blush shades will be sold, ranging in price from $12 to $29.50.

Are you as excited for this collection as I am?!?! You just know the packaging is going to be off the chain. What I can’t wait for is the shade names.

I’ve got so many ideas…

Perhaps a lipstick or Lipglass in Cruella Crimson? Or some fantabulous new concealer inspired by The Lion King’s Scar? There are a whole bunch you can take from Sleeping Beauty…like a gothic, compact purse mirror that pays homage to Maleficent or a raven black eyeliner named Diablo. The Little Mermaid (my favorite Disney animated film eva) also provides a plethora of product possibilities. What about an double-ended eyeliner called Flotsam and Jetsam? Or maybe a palette of poor unfortunate shadows? And can’t you just picture a juicy, red nail polish that no beauty – sleeping or otherwise – could resist? I’d call it Ambien Apple.

What do you think of this collection? Do the Disney Princesses deserve a collection too? Any clever product/name suggestions for MAC?

Snake Massage? Sssssay What?!?

Posted on by daneen in News | Leave a comment
snake+massage Snake Massage? Sssssay What?!?The other day, Mr. Spoiled Pretty was perusing msn.com when he happened upon an article entitled “Bizarre Ways to Beat Stress and Unwind: 10 lesser-known methods for dealing with a high-stress life.” First up on the list: snake massage. Um, say what?!?!? I can’t think of anything more stress inducing than having serpents slither all over me. I’d probably die of cardiac arrest before the whole thing was through.

But oddly enough, people actually pay for this kind of ‘therapy.’ 

Strange: Some people like the feel of non-poisonous reptiles slithering across their bodies in spa-like settings, with larger, heavier snakes providing a deeper kneading as they crawl across flesh. But how effective are these creatures at reducing stress? Even snakes’ general pressure on the body can be relaxing, says Kriota Willberg, a licensed massage therapist and an instructor at Swedish Institute, in New York. But what’s missing is a snake’s ability to systematically and selectively apply pressure, and to respond to the body’s feedback.

But True: When a patient is stressed out, the neck, shoulders, lower back and lower extremities are often especially tense, says Willberg. Within these areas of tension, multiple layers of muscles are often involved. By incorporating different muscle-relaxing techniques, such as tempo, expertise at palpating, and varying the pressure—skills that are not part of a snake’s repertoire—massage therapists customize their work to patients’ needs. The result is a modality that’s both stress-reducing and therapeutic.

I don’t care what anyone says – snake massage sounds like something they’d do to the contestants on Fear Factor, right before making them eat crocodile eyeballs. And paying for this wackadoo service? You gotsssssssssssssss to be a resident of crazytown to reach into your wallet for some nonsense like this. Someone would have to pay me a helluva lot more than $70 for six snakes to have a playdate on my semi-clothed body.

Teacher Cuts Braid Because 7 Year Old Won’t Stop Playing With Her Hair!

teacher+cut+student+braid Teacher Cuts Braid Because 7 Year Old Wont Stop Playing With Her Hair!

This is a damn shame. A Milwaukee teacher cut off a 7-year-old’s braid after she absentmindedly kept playing with her hair. Um, isn’t that what 7-year-olds do…act up? If a teacher can’t handle a fidgety first grader, then she should probably look for a new line of work.

If I had a daughter and she came home from class with less hair than she went to school with, I’d be real tempted to schedule a parent/teacher “conference”…and make sure she didn’t have any hair when she showed up for work the next day.

Parabens: Not So Bad After All?

Posted on by daneen in News | Leave a comment

paraben Parabens: Not So Bad After All?Parabens have a bad rep…but is it undeserved? Yes, according to a study performed by Europe’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety.

After conducting tests on mice, using propylparaben and butylparaben (two common parabens used as preservatives in numerous grooming products), the group concluded that mammals metabolize parabens before the chemicals have a chance to enter the bloodstream – and thus, parabens are unlikely to cause cancer and other health problems.
