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

When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

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

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?

An Amazing Discovery

Posted on by daneen in Blush, Eye Shadow, Holy Grail, Lip Plumper, Mascara | 1 Comment

P193920 hero An Amazing Discovery
If you’ve never dabbled in DuWop before, get thee to Sephora and pick up the Discovery Kit, a set of five DuWop makeup must-haves. The kit includes a full size version of Lip Venom – as well as miniature versions of Amber Eyes (an eyeshadow palette with a base amber shade, a deeper version, and a cream liner), Blush Therapy in Hug, Venom Gloss in Lantana, and Lash Lacquer mascara in Carbon Black. The products are packaged in the cutest reusable train case.

Cult favorite Lip Venom has been named the best lip plumper by Sephora, Good Housekeeping, and Elle – but to be honest, it’s a bit too aggressive for my liking. Then again, I have sensitive skin and I don’t need much enhancement in that area.

P78303 hero An Amazing DiscoveryMy personal fav of the bunch is another award winner, Blush Therapy. After only using it once, it became my #1 cheek color choice. The cream glides on like a gel, but dries to a sheer velvety powder. It blends effortlessly and the finished result more closely resembles a natural flush than shiny gel stains or regular powder blush. And to top it all off, literally, it has aromatherapy oils built into the cap.

Blush Therapy’s latest award is a spot on my Best of Beauty 2007 list. It was also one of the products I used to achieve my New Year’s Eve look. On my next trip to Sephora, I definitely plan to purchase in at least two more colors.
