Sally Hansen Salon InstaGel Strips and Salon GelPolish

The at-home alternative to a salon mainstay: the gel manicure. Professional, high-shine, no dry time and long-wear—these are the qualities that have made millions of women gel manicure converts. But as any gel manicure devotee can attest, these perks are also what make the manicures so expensive—and time-consuming.

That’s why the innovators at Sally Hansen are taking the manicurist out of the equation and putting professional results at your fingertips with the new Salon InstaGel Strips™ and Salon GelPolish™, two unique systems that equip you with everything you need to replicate a state-of-the-art gel manicure. Delivering mirror shine, no dry time and indestructible, chip-free wear for up to 14 days, each easy-to-apply system makes you your own manicurist at a fraction of the price. With Sally Hansen, you can effortlessly get the salon manicure you covet without leaving home—or breaking the bank.

MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection

MarilynMonroe LineUp 72 MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection“Pure platinum Hollywood glamour. Channel the legend’s luster & sex appeal in a colour collection distinctively Marilyn. It’s everything you need to capture the MM look. Specially designed packaging features imagery from The Black Sitting.” -MAC Cosmetics

As a girl who is a huge fan of big lashes and red lipstick, I was really looking forward to the Marilyn Monroe collection that MAC Cosmetics put together. Apparently, me and every other girl who considers herself a fan of makeup! A few days after the release of the collection, everything was sold out in the two stores by me. Luckily, Daneen received some products for me to test out.

First, there was eyeshadow in How To Marry. This is a great, shimmery base shadow – I love to use it when I’m going for big lashes and heavy black eyeliner. I also had a lip liner in Beet, which was a nice creamy shade of reddish pink. I did not have any lipsticks from this collection, so I paired the Beet lip liner with the quintessential matte Russian Red lipstick.

Next, there was an eye kohl in Fascinating (bright white), and  Dazzleglass in Little Rock (sheer white with pearl). For effect, I lined my inner lids with the kohl in Fascinating, added mascara to both top and bottom lashes, and added a thick line of MAC eyeshadow in Marvel. I then used the dazzleglass in Little Rock, for a very 60’s fresh face with full lashes look. This one was hard to capture on film, as the shimmer is subtle (thank goodness, none of us need to go back to the middle school roll on glitter look) but it looks really fun in person.

Overall, this is a great collection. The pieces I got are great additions to my arsenal, and all of the shades are classic and chic. Keep up the good work, MAC!

Naturalizer Boots: Fashion-Forward Footwear That Fit!

Naturalizer boots Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!If you’re in the market for some new boots, I highly suggest you check out Naturalizer. Yes, Naturalizer.

I know that the brand name evokes old lady, orthapedic-looking shoes, but Naturalizer’s shoe and boots styles are anything but. The designs are classic (with a nod to current trends), versatile and super comfy.

 Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!

My beloved Naturalizer Arness Boots

Last winter, I bought a pair of black riding boots and I’ve worn them at least 3 or 4 times a week through the spring. Now that it’s getting colder, they again have become my go-to footwear for fall. They look chic paired with a dress or skirt, and also with skinny jeans or leggings tucked in.

And for those of you with “athletic” calves or who wear a narrow or wide width shoe, you’re in luck because Naturalizer offers all of these options. Personally, I have wide feet and need a wide shaft boot – and I can tell you that it’s damn near impossible to find a cute boot that fits. But Naturalizer sells several.

I’m so happy with my black riding boots that I’m going to buy a brown pair…and my decision comes at the perfect time because they’re having a sale! Now through November 25, 2012, take 20% off your order at Naturalizer.com using promo code UWINT32A.
