Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

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

Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer

 Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer

My natural nails, sans polish, are so dull that I’m kind of embarassed to go without polish. So when I saw Revlon’s new Crazy Shine Nail Buffer at my local CVS, I snatched it up. And, let me tell you…the name is accurate. Crazy accurate, in fact. My iPhone photo above doesn’t do the shine justice.

The double sided buffer smoothes and evens out the nail surface – creating an outrageous, mirror-like finish. The tool promises to create 400% more shine than bare nails. To be honest, I couldn’t tell you the difference between a 100% and 400% increase in shine, but I will say that it looks like I’m wearing a clear topcoat on my nails. And this was achieved in about three minutes (all 10 nails) – no drying time necessary. What I also love is that you can use the white side on polished nails – to restore shine when your mani is looking a lil murky.

Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer retails for $3.99 – but right now it’s on sale at CVS for $2.99.

Gold ‘N Hot 1875 Watt Foldable Handle Travel Dryer

Gold+%2527N+Hot+1875+Watt+Foldable+Handle+Travel+Dryer+1 Gold N Hot 1875 Watt Foldable Handle Travel Dryer

To get my relaxed hair poker straight after shampooing, I rely on a comb/pik attachment when blow drying. I own a “universal” pik attachment that fits perfectly on my beloved Conair Infiniti Pro, which is fine 99% of the time. But a full-sized dryer is a bit bulky to travel with, especially when you’re a chronic overpacker like myself.

Problem is that most travel hair dryers have a wide barrel that isn’t compatible with pik attachments. For what seems like forever, I’ve searched for a travel dryer that comes with a pik attachment – to no avail. After endlessly searching in stores and trolling the Internet, it got to a point that looking for travel dryer with a comb attachment became – to steal a phrase from Cher Horowitz – “as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie.”

But a few weeks ago, my pik attachment prayers were answered. While browsing around Folica.com, I came across the Gold ‘N Hot 1875 Watt Foldable Handle Travel Dryer. Folica.com sent me a sample to review and take on my trip to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami this past weekend (more on that later) – and after using it, I can tell you that it is exactly what I’ve been searching for all of this time. In fact, this travel dryer is so fabulous that you could use it as your regular dryer.

Gold+%2527N+Hot+1875+Watt+Foldable+Handle+Travel+Dryer+2 Gold N Hot 1875 Watt Foldable Handle Travel Dryer

Unlike many travel dryers which are just glorified fans blowing hot air on your hair, the Gold ‘N Hot 1875 Watt Foldable Handle Travel Dryer has all the power of a full-size dryer but in a lightweight, foldable model complete with concentrator and comb attachments! Two speed and heat settings along with tourmaline conditioning and worldwide dual voltage ensure that you have perfectly styled hair no matter where you travel. And how cute is the giraffe motif on the sides of the dryer?

Whether or not you use a pik attachment, the Gold ‘N Hot 1875 Watt Foldable Handle Travel Dryer is an excellent buy. And did I mention that Folica.com has it marked down from $50 to just $29.99? Bottom line: this travel dryer blows the competition away.

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Best Facial Sunscreen
Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hi Mario,

I’m in North Carolina where it is hot AND humid frequently. I’ve been searching for the perfect facial sunscreen that doesn’t make me look chalky and doesn’t melt off in the humidity. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Jamie

Argan+Oil+Daily+Moisturizer+with+SPF+40%252B Makeup Mondays With Mario: Best Facial SunscreenHi Jamie,

If your question about sunscreen came to me about a year ago, I probably would not have answered because until recently, I was not a fan of the SPF products on the market. Like you said, they tend to make you look chalky and I feel that makeup doesn’t sit or blend well over it. I am not suggesting that you shouldn’t use an SPF. In fact, I strongly recommend that women apply sunscreen daily to protect the skin and prevent skin damage.

I’ve found an amazing product by Josie Maran Cosmetics that I love! It will not make you look chalky and your makeup will blend nicely and stay true to its color. Argan Oil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 40 blocks all the harmful UVA and UVB rays – but this product is different as it contains Argan Oil which repairs and reverses damage caused by the sun, fights signs of aging and improves skin tone for a radiant, renewed complexion. Oh, and one more thing – you can use it as a primer as well! Need I say more?

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario
