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.

I love makeup more than most people. But sometimes, less is more.

Can you guess the identity of this “celebrity” (and I use the term loosely)? Usually, she piles on the products – so it’s nice to see that there’s actually some natural beauty hiding beneath those layers of makeup.

Get Out Of My Face

 Get Out Of My Face
Right now, I’m sitting at my computer waiting for my mud mask to dry (more on that later). What’s holding my hair back so that no stray strands end up stuck to my face? It’s my Aquis Microfiber Headband.

aquisheadband Get Out Of My FaceI purchased it at Home Goods for $5 earlier this year – but unlike some of the other impulse buys I made that day, this product was absolutely worth the money. Do I use it everyday? No, although I could and probably should. But it definitely comes in handy when I’m using masks and other treatments on my face and don’t want my hair getting caught in the product. Sure, you could just pull your hair back with an elastic band – but if you have bangs like me, you’ll find the Aquis Headband to be very practical.

The headband is a simple strip of plush microfiber with a velcro closure, that gently holds hair in place. Not only is it great at keeping your hair back while you’re tending to your face with an at-home treatment, it’s especially helpful when it comes time to rinse said treatment off.

And just like a towel, when it gets dirty, simply toss it in the washing machine. Available at Amazon.com, Drugstore.com. and H20+.

Can’t Help It

I’ve been singing Fergie’s new song, Clumsy, for two days straight. It’s so infectious – I can’t get it out of my brain. The equally addictive video is below. Dean and Dan Caten (of Dsquared) make an appearance, as do some well-placed MAC products. Apparently, the new Viva Glam spokeswoman doesn’t waste any time assuming her duties.

And how fantabulous is the inky nail situation she’s got going on?

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter

Posted on by daneen in Lip Balm, Lips | 1 Comment

Too often, there’s a good deal of false advertising when it comes to lip butters. In some cases, they’re actually waxy lip balms in a tube. And sometimes, they turn out to be gooey lip glosses – which I personally love. But if it’s gloss, then call it gloss – right?

Lucky for you, Spoiled Pretty as done some of the leg work – and we’ve found one that’s not waxy or gooey. I think even Goldilocks would agree – this lip butter is just right.

korres lipbutter I Cant Believe Its Not ButterKorres Lip Butter is a buttery balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny finish. The combination of shea butter and rice wax penetrate for deep hydration and softness. And because the lip butter is part of Korres’ new good-for-your-skin color collection, it’s perfect for those gals who prefer natural, eco-friendly beauty – but still prefer Manolo Blahniks to Birkinstocks.

Korres Lip Butter is available at Sephora.
