Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

OPI Black Shatter and the Katy Perry Collection

black+shatter OPI Black Shatter and the Katy Perry Collection

I can’t remember the last time I was this excited about my nails. Peep my polish…I layered OPI‘s new Black Shatter over top of MAC Nail Lacquer in Soiree (from their Cham Pale collection) to create a rose gold leopard-esque print!

Black Shatter creates a crackled finish when applied over any dried nail polish (it doesn’t work on bare nails – I tried). It accompanies the Katy Perry Collection by OPI - which is gorgeous in its own right.

The One That Got Away

When I saw an ad for this collection in one of my fashion magazines, I instantly fell for the glittery shades: Teenage Dream and Last Friday Night. But after OPI sent me some samples to review, the others won me over in a big way. At first glance, Not Like The Movies may look like your standard silver, but it’s actually a light purple and green duochrome that is perfect for those who love to rock an edgier nail. And The One That Got Away is the most beautiful berry shimmer I’ve seen in a long while.

I’ve been meaning to do some more swatches and post the pictures – which I still intend to do. So check back soon…

The Katy Perry Collection by OPI launches this month at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) each.
Even though I already own one of each, I plan on buying (and hoarding) at least two more bottles of the Black Shatter…and I suggest you do the same.

Fargo Fabulous: The Trapper Hat

fargo+trapper+hat Fargo Fabulous: The Trapper Hat

It’s freaking freezing right now in Philadelphia. Thank goodness I had the good sense to ask Santa for a trapper hat last month. If you live in a city or town where the mercury often hovers around (or dips below) zero, please do yourself a favor and pick up one of these toasty warm toppers.

Trapper hats are very trendy right now. But, honestly, I couldn’t care less how popular they are because they’re so damn practical.

On my walk to and from work, my trapper hat keeps my head so warm that I forget how frigid it is outside. And the (faux) furry flaps protect my ears from the bitter wind. Surprisingly, my trapper doesn’t ruin my do like I imagined it would. Once I arrive at the office, just a few seconds of finger styling refreshes and revives my hairstyle. 

Here are some stylish and affordable options:


So does the trapper hat get two manicured thumbs up? You betcha!

Allure’s Airbrushing of Aniston

jennifer+aniston+allure+2011+cover Allures Airbrushing of Aniston

I’m no dummy. I realize that all fashion magazines dabble in the evil art of airbrushing, but the latest cover of Allure Magazine is on another level. That doesn’t even look like Jennifer Aniston. In fact, it doesn’t even look entirely human!

Tell me – what’s the point of putting a beautiful and easily recognizable celebrity on your cover if you’re going to alter her picture to the point where people can’t recognize her?

mmwmd Makeup Mondays With Mario: Tips For Lasses With Glasses

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 a makeup junkie and a big fan of yours – so this is very exciting being able to ask you a question personally. Anyway, here’s my problem. I wear glasses and I need advice on wearing eye makeup. I think my eyes are my best feature, so I want to show them off. But I don’t want to go so heavy that my glasses will magnify everything and make me look crazy. Do you have any tips? Thanks!

-Tanya

prada+glasses Makeup Mondays With Mario: Tips For Lasses With Glasses

Thank you, Tanya!  This is a good question that I don’t get asked often about so I’m glad to help!  I’ll start out by saying that if you wear glasses, you should look and feel equally beautiful as when you’re not wearing them.  A nice pair of glasses can even lift the eyes and face if the shape points towards the outer corners and isn’t too round. 

Keep the eye makeup simple because, like you mentioned, everything tends to look magnified. Magnified lashes could be gorgeous – but flecks of glitter or super shimmery shadow in the crease?  Not so gorgeous. Use natural tones that suit your eye and skin tone and stick with textures that are matte or satin-like. I love a nicely drawn line on the upper lid for definition and it’s important to curl the lashes and apply and even coat of mascara to top and bottom lashes. 

Eyebrows should be groomed and filled in – if needed – as well. You can really have a good time trying on different pairs of frames in colors that flatter your makeup and skin tone. Another look I really love is a red matte lip paired with clean eyes and a bit of highlighter on the cheekbones – it’s sexy and confident.  What more could you ask for? 

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays With Mario!

xo,
Mario
