Am I A Philebrity?

philebrity Am I A Philebrity?
This morning, my girl Mar sent me this link to Philebrity – a cityblog covering the arts, gossip and media in Philadelphia. To my surprise, Spoiled Pretty garnered a shout out!

Does being on Philebrity make me one? I dunno…but either way, I’m extremely flattered.

Between this and the Philly Mag mention, I’m having a good week.

PS – Thanks to all of the readers of Spoiled Pretty. You keep me on my toes and I appreciate your support!

Fabulosity

Fabulosity (n): a state of everything that is fabulous.

fab Fabulosity
Kimora Lee Simmons, entrepreneur extraordinaire, has turned her catchphrase into her newest money maker. Fabulosity – her third fragrance – is a fruity Oriental mix of Forbidden Fruit, Orange Blossom, Tiger Lily, Coconut Milk, Damask Black Plum, Chinese Osmanthus, White Patchouli, Tasmanian Honey, Amber, and Vanilla Absolute.

Damn, Kimora!

“Yes, I’m over the top, and yes, I’m unapologetic, and yes, I have really big diamonds, but I have an equally big heart and an equally big spirit,” she says.

I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so it’s no wonder that I’m obsessed with the diamond-shaped bottle – which, if it were real, would equate to 3,000 carats.

The Fabulosity collection includes:
1.7oz Eau de Parfum, $45
3.4 oz Eau de Parfum, $55,
6 oz. Body Soufflé, $30
5.2 oz. Bath Diamonds (bath salts), $30

Available now at Macys.

Besame Mucho

“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.” -Gwyneth Paltrow

If you let me loose in a makeup store, chances are I’m going to head for the lipsticks and glosses first. I gravitate towards pinks and neutrals, and don’t usually give reds the time of day. Oh how wrong I’ve been.

besamelipstick Besame MuchoI was recently introduced to Besame’s Enchanting Lipstick in Red Velvet, and it has absolutely has won me over. This might sound odd, but I would compare it to a Jersey gown…while wearing it, you look ultra-feminine and sophisticated – but feel completely comfortable.

Red Velvet is a neutral red, so it’s wearable and compliments a variety of skin tones. The creamy, semi-matte finish ensures an elegant lip look that won’t feather. And I’m impressed by the unique double design – use the tip to line lips before filling in. Genius!

And how gorgeous is the gold bullet packaging? I imagine iconic beauties like Grace Kelly and Dorothy Dandridge carried something like this in their purses. Or perhaps a Bond girl might hide this in her décolletage.

STROKE 02 Red Velvet Great office or everyday red, neutral and not too bright  over Besame MuchoApply straight from the tube for a boldly pigmented pout. Or dab on with your finger for an effortless-looking stain. If you’re more of a gloss gal (I feel ya), swipe Besame’s Enriched Lip Glaze in Crystal on top…it’s non-sticky and smells faintly of coconut.

Kick ass!

DuWop Cheek Venom

Ten years after the debut of their runaway sensation Lip Venom, DuWop has created a formula that brings the same results to the cheeks. Cheek Venom is a conditioning blush that contains a blend of silicones and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and condition as well as firm and tighten the skin. It creates a natural flush by stimulating circulation, and has the same cinnamon-y scent as Lip Venom and Prime Venom.

In honor of its name, Cheek Venom comes in two shades: Sidewinder, a gorgeous nude flush, and Diamondback, a hot coral pink.

Available exclusively at Beauty.com.

Deseo Winner Writes Back

Deseo Deseo Winner Writes Back
Paula, one of the Deseo giveaway winners, sent me this glowing review of her prize:

I was one of the winners of the Deseo spray and lotion contest that you had recently. I wanted to email you and rave about how much I love this scent. I must admit, I didn’t know what to expect, being a celebrity fragrance, but this is just wonderful. I am not good with “fragrance notes” but I do know what smells good and good on me – and this definitely shines. I have been layering the scent almost every morning since I recieved it, and have gotten many compliments from co-workers wanting to know what I was wearing – and then being surprised to know it was a Jennifer Lopez scent.

My 74-year-old mother was there when I opened it, so I put it on her, too. It smelled different on her, but still equally pleasant. She was quite taken with it, so now I am keeping a close eye on my bathroom to make sure it doesn’t mysteriously move into hers. icon smile Deseo Winner Writes Back

So, it’s definitely good for different types and admired by many. I want to thank you sincerely for offering this contest and I am so happy to have won and let you know my opinions.

No Joke – Philadelphia Magazine Loves Spoiled Pretty

philly mag14323 No Joke – Philadelphia Magazine Loves Spoiled Pretty
This evening, I returned from a business trip – which is why the posts have been few and far between. Sorry ’bout that.

Anyway…so I just opened an email from my friend Claire, congratulating me on the Spoiled Pretty feature on Philadelphia Magazine’s website. Initially, I thought it was a belated April Fool’s joke. Luckily, my friends don’t share my twisted sense of humor.

I absolutely adore Philly Mag, so I’m over the moon!
