ZENO HOT SPOT Giveaway!

zeno+hot+spot+2 ZENO HOT SPOT Giveaway!

The makeup artists behind the scenes at Fashion Week can work wonders, but no model wants to be that girl showing up at call time with an unsightly blemish.

It is with this in mind that ZENO launched the ZENO BlemishBuster Hotline. This emergency “skin-tervention” service is available exclusively to models walking the runway at New York Fashion Week. All it takes is a simple text or email, and within six hours, a new ZENO HOT SPOT Blemish Clearing Device will be delivered to her door – charged up and ready to zit zap.

The ZENO HOT SPOT Blemish Clearing Device is the new secret weapon in the war against pimples. This hand-held device uses a single ingredient you can actually pronounce – heat – to destroy the bacteria that causes your pimples. The result: quick and painless pimple relief. Unlike other treatments, HOT SPOT can eliminate or significantly reduce 90% of blemishes within 24 hours.

Intrigued? Want a ZENO HOT SPOT of your own? Of course you do. Models are already blessed with tiny waists, un-cellulite-y thighs, and legs for days…so why should they be the only ones with photo ready and fabulous skin? Spoiled Pretty feels you, which is why I’m partnering with ZENO for a giveaway.

Two lucky readers will win the ZENO HOT SPOT (retail value $39.99), to keep their skin in the clear!

Meet the new voices of VIVA GLAM…Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. They love lipstick. They love fashion. They want girls all over the world to have fun, but safely, with eyes wide open to the facts and fictions about women and HIV/AIDS.

Sizzling, sensuous and self-created the ladies are channeling their high-voltage diva energy for VIVA GLAM and igniting From Our Lips – the new MAC Cosmetics VIVA GLAM campaign. In honor of all of the women who are living with the HIV/AIDS virus, and those working to curb its spread, the MAC AIDS Fund will announce $2.5 million in new donations to fund model programs that address the vulnerabilities and inequities that place women at increased risk for HIV/AIDS.

Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper are visible and vocal, using their star power to inspire everyone to make a difference by purchasing the VIVA GLAM lipstick that bears their signature. With every cent of each VIVA GLAM going towards the MAC AIDS Fund, this is a lipstick that has the power to change the world. With the dynamic energy of these two new spokespeople the MAC AIDS Fund, having already raised over $150 Million to combat HIV/AIDS, is giving a voice and support to women – of All Ages, All Races, All Sexes and from all walks of life.

“I think it’s absolutely insane that some people have fewer rights than others, and I’m grateful that MAC has decided to focus on women while I’m a VIVA GLAM Spokesperson. I have so much to say and so much to share, and I’m going to let my lips and lipstick do the talking!” -Cyndi Lauper

Viva+Glam+Lady+Gaga MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and Viva Glam Gaga

“I’ve been familiar with the campaign and have been wearing MAC since I was ten years old. To be joining the likes of iconic former VIVA GLAM spokespeople is an honor. My new VIVA GLAM lipstick color is amazing. It’s very me – a bluish pink, great for everyday, a little bit ’80s. I hope that women buy this lipstick, and honor themselves and honor the cause.” -Lady Gaga

Sally Hansen and Tracy Reese Collaborate Again for Fashion Week Fall 2010

 Sally Hansen and Tracy Reese Collaborate Again for Fashion Week Fall 2010THINK: The new neutrals . . . deep, smoky nail shades inspired by modern runway designs.

WHAT IT IS: A fashionable collaboration between nail color expert Sally Hansen and designer Tracy Reese. For the ninth season in a row, Sally Hansen has joined forces with fashion icon Tracy Reese to develop the season’s essential accessory: stark nail lacquers inspired by Reese’s fall collection.

INSPIRATION: For fall 2010, Tracy Reese draws on urban and rural influences in a highly modern, wearable collection. Prince of Wales checks, distressed faux fur and stretch suede styles are softened by feminine lace, pleated chiffons and draping. In an array of rich, natural tones like spruce green, bittersweet brown, smoky blue and sweet blush, the collection infuses rustic country fare with sharp city bite. The shades in the Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Collection reflect this emphasis on natural tones, urban inspiration and layering. On the runway, Reese layered black Leaver’s lace over the nude shade Wet Clay to create a custom textured look.

 Sally Hansen and Tracy Reese Collaborate Again for Fashion Week Fall 2010The five new shades in the nail color collection are made with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, an all-in-one formula that combines the benefits of a base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, rich color and top coat in a single multi-tasking polish. The patented formula features the most advanced lacquer technology, concentrated high-intensity color, and encapsulated treatment sphere of Vita-Care Technology.

This season’s shades include: Evening Fog, Fedora, Wet Clay, Touch of Mink, and Bittersweet.

“A touch of color to your nails gives you a total polished look, as it creates a complete package from head to toe,” says Reese. “And what woman doesn’t feel amazing with a fresh manicure and beautiful dress?”

The polishes are $7 each and can be purchased at chain drug stores, food stores and mass merchandisers nationally.

New York Fashion Week Fall 2010: Red Lip Trend

fashion+week+red+lips New York Fashion Week Fall 2010: Red Lip Trend

My gal Amber over at Daily Makeover shares one of the hottest trends for fall 2010. Are you red-y?

Lipstick lovers always look forward to fall because it’s the season of the bold lip. If you’re not yet ready to plunge into the deep hues of the glampire beauty trend, there are many interpretations of the more classic crimson look. Oh, and stop making fun of your mother about her lip pencil: The formerly eschewed makeup implement is making a major comeback this fall. Get your sharpeners ready: Here are our favorite red lip looks of the season.

At Richard Chai, Gucci Westman for Revlon keyed makeup. Lips were defined with new-for-fall Revlon Suede Rhapsody Multi-Use Palette, set to launch in September 2010. First, Gucci applied ColorStay Lip Liner in Red all over the lip as a base, then painted on the deeper red lipstick from the palette which created a matte effect. “The clothes don’t have a lot of color, so I felt a pop of pigment was needed on the lips,” explains Westman.

China dolls were the beauty inspiration at Vivienne Tam, where makeup lead Charlotte Willer for Maybelline created a bright defined red lip look that was tempered by fresh skin and punctuated by a defined brow. To get such a precise defined lip look, Willer lined and filled lips in with Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in 50 Red, a gorgeous garnet. “It’s an Asian red, which echoes Vivienne’s collection,” Willer explained. The color and texture was perfect–no additional lipstick was used.

Another stunning, sculpted red lip took center stage at Herve Léger, as it’s known to do – this is no understudy red. Lisa Butler for MAC cosmetics created a strong, matte lip with MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger, a cult favorite orange-red. Gals with pink skin tones need not shy away from this warm red. Per Butler, “Simply toning down the pinkness in the cheeks with a bit of foundation and skipping blush will prepare even a cooler-complexioned girl for this type of yellow-based red.”
