Don’t you just hate when you buy an eye pencil that doesn’t write right? I hate that. I mean, who wants an eyeliner that you have to draw on several times for it to actually show up? My philosophy for eyeliner – and for most color cosmetics, for that matter – is that it must deliver on pigment payout. Otherwise, I want my money back.
I recently discovered a liner that is worth much more than its $9 price tag. It’s so fabulous, in fact, that it smolders. (more…)
That's me making my QVC on-air debut!
Yowza…this was one popular contest. I’m so excited to announce the winner of the QVC All Access Beauty Giveaway. So without further ado, the winner is: Melanie C! (more…)

Have you entered Spoiled Pretty’s QVC All Access Beauty Giveaway yet? If not, here’s a reason to try your luck…
Skincare superstar Kate Somerville heard about my giveaway and asked to add a tube of her ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment to the prize pack. Can you even?!? (more…)
When I was a young girl, one of my favorite pastimes was sitting in front of my mom’s mirrored closet doors and “playing QVC.” I would pretend to be Kathy Levine, meticulously describing each necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings in my mother’s jewelry box – using terms like Black Hills Gold, Diamonique and lobster claw clasp.
Twenty-some odd years later, I’m still a fan of QVC. My favorite show is Friday Night Beauty with Lisa Robertson – and if I didn’t have such excellent self-control, that program might bankrupt me. When I watch FNB, I always get the urge to call in and share my thoughts on the products I’ve tried. But I get nervous and I never go through with it.
So when QVC recently approached me about being one of their featured bloggers for the All Access Beauty event (it kicks off this Friday, April 13 at 11:00 PM EST and will continue on all day Saturday, April 14), I jumped at the opportunity. As an All Access Beauty Blogger, I’m sharing my top beauty picks on QVC.com. And since I’m local, I’ll be traveling to their West Chester, PA studios on Saturday to go backstage and meet beauty rock stars like Kate Somerville, Mally and Josie Maran. (more…)
I have a very discriminating nose, which is why a lot of fragrance reviews don’t see the light of day on the pages of Spoiled Pretty. I have a few favorites (Hanae Mori Butterfly, Prada Infusion d’Iris, Kai, Philosophy Amazing Grace, L’Instant de Guerlain, Carol’s Daughter Sugar-Dipped Vanilla) – but most perfumes don’t impress me enough to warrant a review.
So the fact that I’m posting about Yellow Diamond should tell you that I’m definitely impressed with Versace’s latest olfactory offering. (more…)
