Kate Moss’s Hangover Cocktail For Puffy, Tired Skin

kate+moss Kate Mosss Hangover Cocktail For Puffy, Tired SkinYou know what they say about Kate Moss, right? Ain’t no party like a Kate Moss party cuz a Kate Moss party don’t stop. Okay, maybe they don’t say that. In fact, I know they don’t say that because I just made it up.

Nevertheless, it’s no secret that Kate likes to party. But what has remained a secret – until now – is how Kate manages to look so bright eyed when her late night antics would leave most gals bloodshot.

Kate recently told the Daily Express, “Fill the sink, get some ice, put some cucumber in and stick your head in it. Apparently it’s an old-school thing that Joan Crawford used to do. The cucumber takes out all the puffiness and redness. It feels amazing, it rocks. If you’re tired it really wakes you up.”

Hopefully, side effects do not include the temptation to beat your child with wire hangers.

Vera Wang Glam Princess

vera+wang+glam+princess+2 Vera Wang Glam PrincessVera Wang has added a new fragrance to the Princess lineup.

Glam Princess is “for the boldly brilliant girl who is ready to celebrate and rule the world in the most glamorous way. She introduces herself with guava and juicy pear, reveals her beautiful heart with liquid honey and vanilla orchid, and offers sweet depth with marshmallow accord and cedarwood.”

Zoe Kravitz has succeeded Camila Belle as the new face of Vera Wang Princess. Descended from rock/celeb royalty (her parents are Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet), I think she’s a great choice to usher Princess into the a new decade.

So, does Glam Princess rule? I actually haven’t sniffed Glam Princess yet, but I own – and adore – the other Princess incarnations (Flower Princess, Rock Princess and the original Princess, which I wore on my wedding day)…so I plan to stop by Sephora this week and get a whiff. I’ll let you know what my nose thinks soon.

Vera Wang Glam Princess comes in 1 oz Eau de Toilette Spray ($45), 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette Spray ($72), and 5 oz Satiny Body Lotion ($32).

What Are Your Beauty Resolutions For 2010?

new+year What Are Your Beauty Resolutions For 2010?

There are only a few more hours in 2009, so I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of Spoiled Pretty…and ask about your beauty resolutions for 2010. What do you plan to do differently in the new year?

Don’t be shy. C’mon…dish, ladies.

MAC All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Swatches

mac+all+ages+races+sexes MAC All Ages, All Races, All Sexes SwatchesWhen I first heard about MAC’s upcoming All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection, I got really excited. I immediately loved the idea of a “multi-culti color story” – and knew that a vast majority of these gorgeous, nude/neutral products would find its way into my own beauty arsenal.

The release date for All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is January 7, 2010…though, like most MAC collections, it will probably be available a few days in advance. I got my hands on some early samples (MAC sent them for me to review), and the shades are so beautiful in person. The images and press release I had previously seen didn’t do them justice.

When the collections comes out, I’ll be picking up one or two of the lipglasses. I’m a sucker for MAC lipglass and these frosty neutrals look Rihanna approved.

So, without further ado, here are some swatches and close-up product pics from All Ages, All Races, All Sexes.

Here’s my favorite product of the bunch – Eye Shadow in Banshee (dirty taupe with frost and sparkle diamond cluster – lustre).

DiorShow Extase Mascara Is Here To Pump You Up!

diorshow+extase+mascara DiorShow Extase Mascara Is Here To Pump You Up!

Without cosmetic help, my lashes are pretty much nonexistent. They are so stumpy and sparse, I don’t know why they even bother showing up. So when I’m in the market for a new mascara, I’m not satisfied with one that merely lengthens or volumizes. I only add a mascara to the collection if it delivers both…and if, in the immortal words of L.L. Cool J, it’s “doin it and doin it and doin it well.”

 DiorShow Extase Mascara Is Here To Pump You Up!Recently, the beautiful folks at Dior sent me their newest mascara – DiorShow Extase – to try on for size. And let me tell you…not only is this getting added to the Spoiled Pretty collection, it’s going in heavy rotation. This mascara performs so well, it’s enough to make ole L.L. lick his lips. Allow me to describe what the latest DiorShow is working with…

First, Extase gave me lash volume where none existed. Dior chalks it up to “spherical-shaped Black Pearl Pigments create a 3D volume effect and the exclusive Metamorphosis Powders expand in size by up to 50% after application.” Now, I don’t know nuthin’ about no special pigments and powders…but I will say that the ingredients in their magical mascara formula fatten the lashes quite nicely. In fact, Extase pumps up the volume so well, it made me think of the old SNL skit Hans and Franz. If those two quit bodybuilding and got into the cosmetics game, this might be the mascara they’d concoct.

dioshow+extase DiorShow Extase Mascara Is Here To Pump You Up!Though Dior doesn’t really advertise this, Extase does a fantabulous job of lengthening and curling lashes. I was actually more impressed with this than its volumizing abilities. It took even my tiniest baby lashes and transformed them into long and lithe versions of their former selves. As I type this, the lashes on my right eye (I left my left eye bare, to act as a control) are brushing against the lenses of my glasses.

Even after it dries, the formula is extra dark and glossy. My eyelashes are naturally black, and I noted how inky and lush Extase made my lashes look. So I can imagine that you gals with light lashes are really going to love it. It also wears very well; it doesn’t flake or smudge. And the few times I absentmindedly rubbed at my eyes, it didn’t do anywhere.

Finally, Dior promises that Extase’s SR38 Patented Ceramid helps to reconstruct damaged lashes and promotes stronger and fuller lashes. I’ve only been using it a few days, so I can’t say if there’s any truth to that claim. But even if it doesn’t rebuild and strengthen your fringe, its aforementioned perks are well worth the price of admission ($28).

Right now, DiorShow Extase Mascara is a Sephora exclusive, and only available to Beauty Insiders. The rewards program is free, so why not sign up?
