Meilily: Sephora + Pantone Color IQ Foundation Match SF
Meilily Beauty & Technology: Sephora + Pantone Color IQ Foundation Matching System Tested

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to a new era in foundation shopping!  Finally recognizing the plight of the modern multicultural foundation shopper, Sephora & Pantone have developed an innovative new system of foundation matching.

The new Sephora + Pantone Color IQ system digitally scans the skin using a handheld imaging device, determines the Pantone color that most closely matches your skin color from a range of 110 skin tone shades, and searches an extensive product database to retrieve the best foundation shade matches.

The Color IQ handheld digital scanner is actually used to take images of the skin at three different areas – forehead, neck, and chest – to calculate the closest Pantone shade match. › Continue reading

The Water Secret Gift Bag from Murad: Buy a Book, Get $200 Free Skincare?

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010 | Free Stuff, Hot Happenings, Photos, Skincare | Comments Off

meilily-murad-skincare-water-secret-book-gift-offerMeilily Free Stuff Alert and Details: The Water Secret Gift from Murad – What’s Inside!

When I came across this special offer where you buy Dr. Howard Murad’s new book, The Water Secret, and then get up to $200 in Murad skincare products in the mail, I was honestly pretty skeptical. Given that the Murad Sleep Reform Serum I was eying cost $97, this offer just sounded too good to be true.

Since I heard about this offer through trusted friends at The Beauty Grapevine (formerly eMakeMeUp Grapevine), I went for it! I bought a copy of The Water Secret (about $10.70 on Amazon), emailed my receipt to Murad by November 2, and then held my breath and waited.

Here is what I got in my Water Secret Gift Bag… › Continue reading

What Anthropologie Got Me for My Birthday: Candle Necklace, Card & Coupon!

Monday, October 11th, 2010 | Free Stuff, Hot Happenings, Jewelry, Photos | 4 Comments

Meilily Hot Happenings & Free Stuff Alert: Special Birthday Gift for Anthropologie Members!

During my birthday month, Anthroplogie personally sent me a lovely birthday card and birthday gift. So thoughtful of them to remember my birthday! I know how busy they must be coming up with the cutest clothing every season, but they somehow managed to remember!

Perhaps it helped that I am an Anthropologie “member.” I originally signed up because it’s free and I like to shop there – plus they give you a membership card, the Anthro Card, in a really cute fabric drawstring bag. Since then, I have discovered some nice perks to being an Anthro account holder, including free shipping and now a surprise birthday gift!

What Anthropologie Got Me for My Birthday

Inside a lovely envelope of thick paper, I found a white card with a cupcake motif attached to a cute candle necklace › Continue reading

SF Barneys Warehouse Sale & Haul Photos: Suede Marni Heels

Monday, August 23rd, 2010 | Fashion, Hot Happenings, Photos, Sales, Shoes | Comments Off


Meilily: Barneys Warehouse Sale Sign & Shopping Bag

Meilily Hot Happenings & Haul Report: Barneys Sale = Marni Heels!

This year, the Barneys Warehouse Sale in San Francisco coincided with the Renegade Craft Fair, both at Fort Mason Center. Genius! Be sure to check out Meilily’s pics from the Craft Fair here.

SF Barneys Warehouse Sale Highlights:

Not expecting to find much, I headed straight for the Barneys Women’s Shoes section at the back. (The women’s handbag and accessories selection was dismal, btw.) The first Sunday of the SF sale wasn’t too crowded and there was room to sit down and try on shoes. With shoes arranged by size in typical clearance fashion, only the right mate was available on the racks. Note: Each shoe box gets sealed with rope before you can take it over to the registers! Talk about security!

After trying on some ill-fitting Prada wedges and a chic Italian multi-strap zippered heel (just a little too large), I found some super-comfortable and cute Marni suede heels (photo below) that hugged my feet when I put them on. I was immediately sold!
