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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

makeup+brushes Top 10 Makeup Brushes to Add To Your Collection

Hey dolls. We spend a lot of time here talking makeup. But you do realize that your cosmetics are only as good as the tools you apply them with, right?

For those of you in need of some new brushes to round out your collection, head on over to Daily Makeover for their top 10 picks.

On The Cuff: Stop Water From Running Down Your Arms!

Posted on by daneen in Tools | 1 Comment

woman+washing+face+splashing On The Cuff: Stop Water From Running Down Your Arms!Don’t you just hate when you’re washing your face at the sink, and the water’s going everywhere? It’s running down your arms, onto the counter, then dripping on the floor. It’s like, damn – I just wanted to wash off my makeup…I didn’t need a bath! After you finish cleaning your face, you end up having to clean up the entire bathroom. What a pain, right?

Well, if you can relate then read on…because I found a product that will keep your sleeves dry and your bathroom floor puddle-free. Add this to the “why didn’t I think of that” list…

On the Cuff is a set of sponge bracelets that you wear on your wrists. When you’re washing your face, instead of the water running down your arms, the sponges absorb the water. The cuffs are one size fits all, so they stretch to accommodate both men and women. When they get dirty, just rinse with warm soapy water, squeeze and allow to dry.

What’s even better is that On The Cuff can also be used when washing the dishes, washing your car and cleaning the shower. The only thing I’d change about On The Cuff is the color. The industrial yellow sponge looked kinda cheap and lackluster against my cafe au lait skin. A pair in fuchsia or cerulean would be super chic.

On the Cuff comes in packs of 2 ($7.99) or 8 ($24.99). Both packs come in reusable mesh bags, and the larger pack even comes with a drying rack.

eyelash+curler Makeup Mondays With Mario: Curling Stick Straight LashesHi Mario,

I have this problem where I have to curl my lashes several times throughout the day. When I first put on my makeup in the morning, I curl my lashes and then apply the mascara, but it seems that right when I walk out the door they are sticking straight again. I have no idea what to do. Can you please suggest some things that might help?

Thanks, Jen

Hey Jen,

Rest assured that you’re not the only girl with stick straight lashes! Before you start your face, curl the lashes once, counting to 3 or 4 seconds per pinch on each lash. This way, they will be evenly curled. Go ahead and do your makeup as normal. After the eyes are done, curl lashes one more time. Apply a curling mascara. There are tons of different curling mascaras on the market. N.Y.C. New York Color makes a great and affordable one. Brush out the mascara with a clean wand so it’s not too clumpy. Once it’s dried or almost dried, curl one more time, not pressing too hard. Finally, apply another coat of mascara. Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays!

xo,
Mario
