Gossip Girls Love The Smoky Eye

The Gossip Girl gals may not all get along, but there’s one thing they agree on – a smoky eye paired with a soft glossy lip.

My favorite look of the finale belonged to Blair. Normally, the combination of messy updo, braids, and Jennifer Behr Patent Orchid Skinny Headband would spell overkill. But on Blair, it was pitch perfect. Serena and Georgina? Meh.

And while I liked Vanessa’s cascade of curls, her dress was a mess. I mean, if you’re invited to attend high society nuptials, don’t show up in an frock homesewn by your BFF’s little sister. It kinda reminded me of the Gordon Gartrell episode of The Cosby Show…except that, in this case, Nessa had no idea how ridiculous she looked. It’s no wonder Nate called it quits.

Desirable Giveaway

In February, Jennifer Lopez gave birth to twins Max and Emme. Congrats, J.Lo! That same month, she also debuted her sixth fragrance – Deseo.

“Deseo means desire…wish…dream…things that you want. It just seemed perfect for this time in my life and what I am communicating to people. Which is to inspire them, and to dream, and to want more, and to never stop reaching for the things they want to accomplish in their lives – that’s really the sentiment behind it.” – Jennifer Lopez

Deseo is a floral, woody scent – inspired by the smell and feel of the air during a midnight walk in Jennifer’s flower garden, moments before a thunderstorm. The scent of orange blossom, jasmine and mimosa mingles with cedar wood and wet earth radiating energy and warmth.

The notes include:

A Radiant Top
Watery Bamboo Leaves, Garden Yuzu, Sicilian Bergamot, Freesia

A Voluptuous Heart
Star Jasmine, Pink Geranium Flower, Orange Blossom, French Mimosa

A Natural Base
Warm Amber, Oak moss, Sensual Musks, Creamy Sandalwood, Atlas Cedar wood, Patchouli, Mineral Accord

This was a very personal project for Jennifer, since it really focuses on going back to her roots, her Latin culture – so her approval was extremely important throughout the entire process. Jennifer was extremely involved in the print and television shoot, in which she worked with creative director Oliver van Doorne, and photographer Peter Lindbergh to make sure they were getting out of the shoot exactly what they wanted to convey in the ad – a sense of unrefined luxury.

If you desire Deseo, you’re in luck. Five lucky readers will win the Eau de Parfum spray (3.4 fl oz) and Desirable Body Lotion (6.7 fl oz) – retail value is $83.

To enter the giveaway, visit the jenniferlopezbeauty.com and find out the names of Jennifer’s first 5 fragrances. Then send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com – be sure to include the answers and your full name. The subject line should read “Deseo Giveaway.”
