Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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

paul mitchell curls ad 791x1024 Paul Mitchell Introduces The Truth About Curls Collection

As a beauty blogger, one of the questions I get asked most is to recommend products for curly hair. But I don’t have curls (well, not anymore…my hair is relaxed, and has been for 25+ years), so I’ve been reluctant to endorse products that I don’t myself use. That is, until now…

Paul Mitchell recently introduced a new hair care range for girls with curls. If your ringlets are going rogue, your waves are wilted or your tendrils have got it twisted (and not in a good way), The Truth About Curls collection is the detangling, frizz-fighting, defining, hydrating and smoothing answer to your prayers.

Paul Mitchell The Truth About Curls Collection 1024x902 Paul Mitchell Introduces The Truth About Curls Collection

Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo: Rich lather gently cleanses curls without roughing up the cuticle. “Prepares curls for a frizz-free finish.” Ultra-moisturizing and sulfate-free.

Full Circle Leave-In Treatment: Lightweight conditioning treatment won’t weigh hair down. Do-it-all formula hydrates, detangles and tames frizz. Replenishes thirsty locks and helps protect against damage.

Twirl Around Crunch-Free Curl Definer: Dual-formula swirls together hydrating cream and smoothing gel. Defines, separates and tames unruly curls and waves without frizz or crunchiness. Helps curls retain their shape and bounce all day long.

Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Cream Gel: Secret weapon for creating sexy, tousled beach waves. Forms, separates and adds loads of texture. Humidity-resistant for perfectly imperfect frizz-free styles.

Even if you don’t have curly hair, you can benefit from the shampoo and leave-in conditioner. I’ve personally used the products on my dry, chemically-straightened hair and found them to be gentle and very hydrating. And at $6-40 (depending on bottle size), the price point is nice too.

Don’t Forget to Enter the ABC Family Pump My Style Sweepstakes!

Posted on by daneen in Acne, Contest, Featured | Leave a comment

epiduo Dont Forget to Enter the ABC Family Pump My Style Sweepstakes!Makeup is great. But what’s even better is the confidence that comes with clear skin that doesn’t need a lot of cosmetic enhancement.

As someone who has struggled with acne for more than half of my life, I know firsthand how blemishes and blackheads can sabotage self-esteem. And while masking these imperfections with foundations and concealers provides a quick-fix, heavy face makeup can exacerbate skin issues, rendering you more dependent on these products.

Ready to break the cycle and break up with your breakouts? Tell your acne, “I’m just not that into you” by making an appointment with your doctor. Ask about how Epiduo® (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel 0.1%/2.5% can help you, literally, save face.

Epiduo Gel is the #1 branded topical acne product. Its combination of two hardworking ingredients helps clear up the breakouts you have now and prevent future pimples from forming. It also comes in a convenient pump dispenser, which makes it super easy to integrate into your everyday routine.

Polished: Sephora by OPI in Opening Night

Opening Night by OPI for Sephora 1024x764 Polished: Sephora by OPI in Opening Night

This is, hands down, my favorite nail polish color ever. I only own 9 colors of polish, and I recently had to buy a new bottle of Sephora by OPI in Opening Night because I had used all of mine up. Every single time I wear this polish I get compliments on it. Daneen asks what color it is so often that it has become a running joke.

This is a perfect cool weather manicure color. It is unexpected yet classic, and dark without being black.

NARS Andy Warhol Collection

Posted on by daneen in Featured | 3 Comments

NARS Andy Warhol Photo Booth packaging1 NARS Andy Warhol CollectionPop art pioneer, filmmaker, and publisher, Andy Warhol was one of the most important visual artists of the 20th century. He joked “art is whatever you can get away with.” A painting, a movie, a TV commercial, an album cover, or an interview with a movie star. For Andy, art could be anything, but whatever he did, he did it as if it were fine art. He made paintings with a photo booth and ‘Screen Tests’ – movies that barely moved. He made an 8-hour movie starring the Empire State Building. He changed the way we see the world.

Andy Warhol’s world has been inspiring François Nars for years. Now NARS introduces a limited edition collection in the spirit of Andy Warhol. From the formulas and shades to the packaging and names, every element of the collection evokes François Nars’ take on the cool, image-rich, character-laden world of Warhol.

Everybody is a Superstar. At least for 15 minutes.
