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.

Face Boutique Contest Winner Writes Back

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway | Leave a comment

Yesterday, I received a lovely email from Nevin, the first-place winner of Spoiled Pretty’s Face Boutique giveaway. She’s had some time to experiment with her prizes and wanted to share her reviews with me – and with you. Here’s what she had to say:

So i’ve had some time now to try all the fabulous products that you generously sent my way via your giveaway. Here is my review…

spot less 8 Face Boutique Contest Winner Writes BackFirst, I just want to say that these products from Face Boutique came in the cutest packaging ever! I hadn’t even tried anything yet and already I was impressed. Now, wouldn’t you know that the day I receive these items, I get a huge whitehead on my face. Now normally, this isn’t something I would broadcast to all of you readers, but I’ll make an exception this time because that night I used the Spot-less Blemish Gel. It’s a clear, odorless gel that comes in a small tube. You just dab it on and it dries out the whitehead and reduces the redness. A few nights of this and my problem was solved! It actually worked!

peachy clean 300 Face Boutique Contest Winner Writes BackOn to the Peachy Clean Facial Wash. The wash comes out as a clear liquid but quickly foams up as soon as you lather it on your face. The first time I tried this, I was in love! It’s soft and smooth, does not irritate my eyes, has the most heavenly peach scent, and washes off great. Your face is left feeling incredibly clean and refreshed. For those of you who don’t like scents, don’t be afraid to purchase this one as the peach scent is very light and subtle, and at night, very calming and soothing. Definitely gets you ready for a good nights sleep.

fresh faced 60 Face Boutique Contest Winner Writes BackSo naturally after washing my face, I always moisturize. Unfortunately, I have to say that I was not impressed with the Fresh Faced Oil-Free Moisturiser. It’s a clear liquid in a tube. I immediately thought it was weird for a moisturizer to be this way, and boy was I right! After putting it on, my face did not feel moisturized at all. It felt almost sticky! I had to use my normal moisturizer to make my skin feel smooth again. I gave this a few more tries because I loved the other Face Boutique products, but it just didn’t work for me.

sweep clean 25 Face Boutique Contest Winner Writes BackLast but not least, the Sweep Clean Cloths…so, you know how sometimes you just are not in the mood to go through your nightly face cleansing ritual for whatever reason, but you know you should because sleeping with a face full of makeup is not a good thing! Well, that’s when these cloths can really come to your rescue. The cloths are already moist so all you have to do is pull one out, wipe your face clean and then throw it out. That’s it! You feel clean and refreshed in seconds.

Overall, I am very happy with the Face Boutique items and will most likely be restocking once I run out. To all of the Spoiled Pretty readers, I highly recommend you try some of these out for yourselves. To Daneen, thank you again for allowing me to try these great products!

Got TINte In Pocket

tinte Got TINte In Pocket
I’ve finally found a use for that useless coin pocket on the front of your jeans. Turns out it’s the perfect way to keep my TINte* Moisturizing Lip Color on me at all times, right where it belongs.

Inspired by the creator’s first gloss encounter, this lip color is packaged in a retro slider tin; but the Shea butter and vitamin infused formula keeps it modern – and non-sticky.

TINte Moisturizing Lip Color is the ideal product for those days when you want to wear gloss, but your lips are begging for a balm.

Fergie fancies Peaches & Cream, while Sarah Jessica Parker prefers Cream Soda. Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, and I favor the Peppermint flavor.

* TINte products are tested on boys, never animals.

Waxed

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, I Digress | Leave a comment

Y’all know I love me anything celebrity-related; my husband thinks it’s hilarious that I refer to The Daily 10 as “the news” – he’s probably a little embarassed too.

Anyway, I recently visited TMZ, and came across this gallery of celebrity wax figures. Some of them are pretty good (Leo and Jessica) – some, not so much (Xtina). And how funny/creepy is it that James Brown’s wax double is sweating?

For more photos, visit TMZ.com.
