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

Nude Attitude: Zoya Touch Collection

Posted on by daneen in Nail Polish, Nails | Leave a comment
Zoya Touch nude nail polish launch RGB Nude Attitude: Zoya Touch Collection

I’m a buff nail buff, for many reasons. First, like a pair of nude pumps, nude nails elongate and slims the fingers. And if you’re prone to chips, they’re less obvious than if you’re wearing a more pigmented polish. But one issue I have with most nudes is their transparency. It irks me to no end when I have to paint on layer after layer to achieve an opaque finish. Usually, the finished product ends up looking thick, if you know what I mean. Or all of those layers take eons to dry which increases, tenfold, the probability of me smudging my polish.

Either this is a common dilemma or my friends at Zoya somehow read my mind – because they just launched a collection of full-coverage nude polishes designed to coordinate with every skin tone based on yellow, red or blue undertones and kissed with a hint of metallic to make them ultra wearable.

The Touch Collection includes:

zoya+touch Nude Attitude: Zoya Touch Collection

Minka – latte beige cream with a metallic kiss
Shay – desert rose sand beige cream with a metallic kiss
Pandora – mauve beige cream with a metallic kiss (I’m wearing a Pandora pedi right this sec)

 

Like Zoya’s other 300 shades, the Touch Collection polishes are also formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor free, and vegan-friendly.

The polishes can be purchased separately for $8 or as a trio for $24 at zoya.com.

Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Lotion, Sun Protection | Leave a comment
Hawaiian+Tropic+Shimmer+Effect+Lotion+SPF+40 Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!

Unless you want to look like Magda from There’s Something About Mary in 30 years, sunscreen is a necessity – especially in the summertime. But who actually applies it on the regular? Problem is that we ladies spend lots of time and oodles of money protecting our pretty faces, yet neglect the rest of our bodies. Sunscreen becomes an afterthought because it’s utilitarian. It’s boring. It’s not sexy. Well, until now, that is…

I just discovered a new line of products that gives new meaning to “hot fun in the summertime.” Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotion Sunscreens, available in SPF 20 and 40, contain prestige minerals that add a soft, subtle sheen to enhance and highlight skin tone while providing broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The rich and creamy formula features skin-nourishing antioxidants and Hawaiian Tropic’s signature coconut scent. The Shimmer Effect Coconut Papaya After Sun Lotion is infused with Aloe Vera and Cocoa, Shea and Mango butters, and is great for everyday use.

The shimmer that these products leave on your skin looks so good that, last week, I applied the After Sun Lotion post-shower…and I had absolutely nowhere to go. Seriously, I just sat on the sofa marveling at my shimmery skin.
Hawaiian+Tropic+Shimmer+Effect+After+Sun+Lotion+1 Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!On a level of 1 to 10 (1 being blah, bare skin and 10 being J.Lo), the Shimmer Effect Lotions deliver a level 6 shimmer. They’re workplace and weekend appropriate. And - as if you needed one more reason to open your wallet – they’re only $8 each!
When a product blows me away, I can’t keep it to myself. Which is why I’m posting this glowing review…and hooking one Spoiled Pretty reader up! Sharing is caring, as they say. One of you will receive all three products, plus a gold Hawaiian Tropic tote bag to, er, tote your beauty booty.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat

 Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat

I have a full-time career (in addition to Spoiled Pretty) and I’m also a new mom, which means that I’m short on spare time – especially in the morning. Before I had Westley, I used to take my time and carefully apply my makeup before heading off to work. Now I’m so busy that I’ve had to seriously streamline my morning routine. On days when I’m in a rush, but need to look pulled together and polished, I even out my skin with foundation, then apply a skincare product that contains Vitamin E oil.

During the winter, when I’m abnormally dry, I pat Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat on top of my foundation, all over my face for a dreamily dewy glow. It imparts a healthy radiance while protecting my skin from environmental stress and working its anti-aging magic. Now that it’s summertime, my skin is on oil overload – so, instead of applying it all over my face, I’ve been using the serum just on the bridge of my nose, my cheekbones and brows – to highlight my bone structure.

Hyperpigmentation is also a major skin issue for me, and I’ve found vitamin E to be particularly effective at diminishing my dark marks and acne scars – so this product is great for that too. Just remember to also use sunscreen so that the dark spots don’t re-appear!

The Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules have so many benefits that they’re well worth the $68 price of admission. Plus the container looks so pretty on your vanity. Just be sure to warn your sweet tooth of a spouse to look but NOT touch…Mr. Spoiled Pretty almost ate one of the capsules, thinking it was candy!
