If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

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.

Time Release Technology for Thierry Mugler Angel Body Products

Posted on by daneen in Fragrance, Perfume | 2 Comments

Naomi+Watts+Angel Time Release Technology for Thierry Mugler Angel Body Products
Thierry Mugler Angel Les Parfums Corps, a nine-unit collection of items for the body, will launch this fall. And thanks to time-release technology, each product in the line gives off Angel’s scent for “as long and as faithfully as the actual eau de parfum itself,” says Women’s Wear Daily.

Joel Palix, President of Thierry Mugler Worldwide adds, “It is a way to release perfume in gel
over eight hours…This is a kind of revolution in the olfactive industry.”

Angel Les Parfums Corps will debut in September – exclusively at Nordstrom in the United States. In October, the collection will launch worldwide.

The product lineup will include:

* 200-ml. body cream ($80)
* 200-ml. Body lotion ($50)
* 200-ml. body oil ($45)
* 200-ml. shower gel ($40)
* 200-ml. exfoliating cream ($40)
* 30-ml. hair mist ($29)
* 100-ml. hand cream ($25)
*50-ml. roll-on deodorant ($25)

Exclusive to Bloomingdale’s (U.S.) in October will be a 30-ml., limited edition perfumed gel for $55.

angel Time Release Technology for Thierry Mugler Angel Body ProductsThe Angelic face for this collection will be none other than Naomi Watts, who will also be the
face of Thierry Mugler Beauty makeup starting in 2009.

Spoiled Pretty’s take: Maybe I’m not understanding…but if these amazing new products are engineered to be as potent and enduring as the Angel Eau de Parfum, then why would someone spend $72 on 0.8 ounces of the actual fragrance when they could just buy hair mist and deodorant and save $18?

fresh+fall+2008 Its Fresh, Exciting*: New Products From Fresh, Coming This Fall
This fall, Fresh will expand its fragrance portfolio with a new scent, Strawberry Flowers, created in celebration of Sephora’s 10th anniversary. The company is also expanding its bath and body, skin care and makeup offerings with a bevy of new beauty products.

Launching exclusively at Sephora in September, Strawberry Flowers Eau de Parfum is a fruity floral scent, designed specifically for a younger, Sephora customer. The fragrance, inspired by the scents of a typical spring morning, is composed of top notes of mandarin, yuzu and white peach, middle notes of mountain strawberries, freesia, orange blossom and osmanthus, and base notes of orris, musk and white woods.

Also in September, Fresh will debut the Fig Apricot body care collection, based on its top-selling Fig Apricot Eau de Parfum, which launched a decade ago. The collection will include a bath/shower gel and a body cream and will be sold at Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bluemercury.

Fresh’s fall color collection includes the Imperial Bedroom Face Palette, and a new Firebird Mascara. The palette’s cream-based colors include iridescent pearl and warm antique gold eye shades, an opalescent black eyeliner, a shimmer highlighter for the cheeks and a deep red gloss for the lips. Inspired by a Russian fairy tale and based on the company’s best-selling mascara, Fresh Supernova, Firebird is designed to thicken, lengthen and curl lashes. “Supernova gives your lashes a thick, dark and more defined look, whereas the soft lightweight fibers on the Firebird brush gives it a feathery and flirty feel,” said Alina Roytberg, Fresh’s co-founder and creative director.

Fresh+Twilight+Freshface+Glow Its Fresh, Exciting*: New Products From Fresh, Coming This FallFresh has also come out with Twilight Freshface Glow, a multifunctional illuminating cream. The primer is designed to be used as a highlighter along cheekbones, brow bones and décolletage. On the retail front, Fresh has plans to open several freestanding stores by the end of the year.

This month, the company will open a location in Century City, Calif., followed by another store in Dallas’ Northpark Center in October. The company is also looking to open a store in Philadelphia (oh please, please…with Sugar Lip Treatment on top!) along with additional stores in the Northeast.

Jessica+Simpson+Fancy+4 Fancy New Fragrance From Jessica Simpson
In August 2008, Jessica Simpson will add a perfume to her curriculum vitae. Fancy is the product of Jessica’s collaboration with Parlux Fragrances.

“With Fancy, I wanted to create a pretty fragrance, one that I could be just as comfortable wearing on the red carpet or every day with my favorite jeans,” says Simpson. “For me, Fancy is just that: fancy. This is a unique fragrance – personal, whimsical, playful and romantic with a heart of gardenia, an essence I truly cherish.”

Jessica+Simpson+Fancy+1 Fancy New Fragrance From Jessica SimpsonFancy opens with the radiance of sparkling Pear and juicy Apricot Nectar wrapped with the glow of Red Fruits. The heart of Fancy is the captivating draw of dewy Gardenia laced with the delicacy of Night Blooming Jasmine. Toasted Almonds and Caramel notes provide a playful element. Creamy Sandalwood, infused with the sensual energy of Amber Crystals, unites with the embracing warmth of Vanilla Crème as Fancy clings to the skin at dry down. The fragrance itself is the color of blush champagne, a soft pink, the ultimate color of femininity.

The bottle is a softer, more modern interpretation of Jessica’s favorite vintage perfume bottles. The rose-gold floral motif that encircles both the bottle and collar add richness and dimension to this exquisite package.

The Fancy fragrance collection consists of a 3.4 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray ($59.00) and a 1.7 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray ($49.00), and a 5.0 oz Body Lotion ($30.00). The launch gift with purchase is a vintage-inspired cosmetic case, in soft pink to match the fragrance.

80s Ladies Week: Cool Beans Courtesy of Kenzo

dynasty+gals 80s Ladies Week: Cool Beans Courtesy of Kenzo
For the fourth installment of 80s Ladies Week, I am inspired by one of the most heinous fashion felonies – shoulder pads.

Sometime in the early 1980s, someone had the asinine idea to create these mini monstrosities. Their original purpose remains unclear…perhaps they were invented to facilitate naps on airplane rides…you know, like a predecessor to the travel pillow. But those suckers caught on, and for an entire decade, females everywhere were running around looking like cross-dressing football players. Even arch rivals Krystle Carrington and Alexis Colby shared a mutual love for the dy-NASTY shoulder pads. And as you can see, these ladies liked ‘em big.

But bigger isn’t always better…which is why, circa 1992, women came to their senses and downsized…and also why I love Kenzo’s new (shoulder pad-shaped) RYOKO fragrance pebbles.

ryoko 80s Ladies Week: Cool Beans Courtesy of Kenzo
This collection of five pocket-sized, leak-proof fragrance atomizers has become a summer staple in my handbag. If you’re a gal who likes her fragrance to go, you’ll love the creativity and convenience of the RYOKO. In your cavernous bag (I know you’ve got one), it’s a breeze to find thanks to the punchy colors. And its ergonomically-designed packaging just begs to be handled.

The RYOKO is available in five fabulous fragrances:

Flower by Kenzo
Kenzo Amour
L’eau Par Kenzo
L’eau Par Kenzo Pour Homme
Tokyo by Kenzo

My pick? Flower by Kenzo – without a doubt. I’m so obsessed, Kenzo might need to take out a restraining order.

The RYOKO fragrance pebbles are available for $29 at kenzousa.com.
