Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble.

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.

Baby Your Baby’s Skin With These Green Goodies!

Posted on by daneen in Baby, Eco-friendly | 1 Comment
burt%2527s+bees+baby+bee+bubble+bath Baby Your Babys Skin With These Green Goodies!

I’ve been using Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Bubble Bath on my son, Westley, since he came home from the hospital 8 months ago. The brand makes a Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash, but it dried out his skin and hair. I prefer the Bubble Bath to bathe Westley because it’s tear-free, gentler on his sensitive skin, leaves his hair silky and manageable, and smells so good that I can’t stop sniffing him after bath time. Plus, it gets him as clean as a shampoo and baby wash would – and he loves playing with the bubbles!

The sulfate-, phthalate-, petrochemical- and paraben-free is great for babying mommy’s skin too. On many occasions, I’ll lather up with this product because it smells THAT good. I never let Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Bubble Bath run out in my house. There’s always a bottle on standby.

lavanila+baby+butter Baby Your Babys Skin With These Green Goodies!

My son has very dry, sensitive skin so finding a lotion that deeply moisturizes without breaking him out was very important to me. I tried quite a few brands and nothing came close to Lavanila The Healthy Baby Butter. It’s a 100% natural body cream that contains Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and 30 essential vitamins and minerals. The non-greasy formula nourishes, soothes and protect against dryness. I apply The Healthy Baby Butter to Westley’s skin twice a day – and when I’m through, it’s like I just gave myself an ultra-hydrating hand treatment. Plus the fragrance is really amazing – soft yet intoxicating – like a baby should smell. I love this product so much that I buy 2-3 tubes at a time.

Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Collection

spoiled+pretty+green+week+small Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Collection
I love a hair product with Argan Oil in it. For centuries, Moroccan women have used this lightweight yet rich elixir to protect their hair (and skin) from UV damage while creating soft, silky perfection. It used to be that you had to purchase these Argan Oil–infused products at a salon or beauty boutique, and they would cost a pretty penny. Thankfully, Organix just launched the Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Collection (Argan Oil Shampoo, Conditioner, Renewing Treatment and Penetrating Oil) that performs just as well as its prestige counterparts, but costs around $9 per product and is available at drugstores.

Each formula is sulfate and paraben-free, and packaged in bottles made from materials containing recycled post-consumer resin. And all labels are printed utilizing environmentally-friendly inks and compostable label film made from annually renewable resource corn, not from petrochemicals.

Would You Let Your Man Do Your Makeup?

Posted on by daneen in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Would you let your boyfriend/husband do your makeup? As this video proves, it’s probably not a great idea – though it’s definitely entertaining…and the end result is pretty decent.

One of my favorite parts is when the boyfriend/makeup artist calls the MAC eye liner pencil “a MAC thang.” Hilarious.

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Mascara Made Easy

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 confused and I need your help. It seems that there are so many conflicting “rules” about how to apply mascara and I don’t know which ones to follow. Some say to hold the wand vertically while others say horizontally. I’ve been told to bend the wand – what good does that do? And some tips say let your mascara dry between coats, while other tips say not to let the coat dry before applying more. 

If anyone knows the best way to apply mascara, I know it’s you. So please help, Mario!

You rock,
Reena
applying+mascara Makeup Mondays With Mario: Mascara Made EasyHey Reena,

I don’t blame you for feeling confused! Applying mascara should be one of the most simple steps in your makeup routine. I’m not sure that there is technically a “best way” to apply mascara as it really depends on your lashes and how you prefer them to look and feel. When I apply mascara, I hold the wand horizontally and apply it first to the root of the lash up to the tip.  If I want a darker and fuller lash, I usually wiggle the brush from side to side to really coat the lashes with mascara. 

I prefer to apply a second or third coat while the lashes are still wet because it allows for easier blending and separating. The same goes for the bottom lashes as well. I recommend you find your own way to apply mascara that feels most comfortable to you and gives you the result you want.  In other words, you make your own rules to follow!


Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,
Mario

Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss

 Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss

I’m currently in love (okay, obsessed) with Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss. On one end, there’s a creamy and lipstick and on the other, there’s a super shiny, non-sticky, sheer gloss that just so happens to smell and taste like vanilla cupcakes. 

Formulated with Josie’s signature ingredient, Argan Oil, the product provides moisturizing coverage and is available in three pretty pink shades (I own Rosey, a dusty rose).  I’m crossing my fingers that more colors are in the works because I would add each and every one to my collection. 

This double-ended multitasker is a makeup bag must have.

Josie Maran Argan Slimline Lipstick with Gloss ($25) is sold exclusively at QVC.
