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. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

Window Shopper’s Remorse

Posted on by daneen in Bronzer, Tan | Leave a comment

guerlain+bronzing+powder+mist Window Shoppers RemorseTwo weeks ago, I went to Sephora, for story research (I swear). Guerlain had this promotional table set up, manned by a sunkissed representative. The saleswoman familiarized me with the brand’s Terracotta collection, then asked if I would like to try the Terracotta Spray Bronzing Powder Mist.

I had just come from a relaxing rubdown at Topper’s Spa (followed by eyebrow shaping at Thread Beauty Bar), and I wasn’t wearing any makeup – so I happily obliged. The woman misted my face with the #2 shade and quickly blended the product with a foundation brush. In (literally) one minute, I looked like I just got back from some sun drenched isle. It’s so gorgeous, words simply won’t do.

As much as I loved the look, I wasn’t exactly enamored with the price ($59)…so I left it in the store. But ever since, I’ve been kicking myself for leaving Sephora empty-handed. I recently learned that each can contains 130 applications, which comes out to just 45 cents per bronzy face. So my cheap ass is heading back to Sephora – this time, primed to make a purchase.
