Meilily Product Review: Julep Glow in the Dark Nail Polish – Nicola! Does it really glow?
Whether it’s that time of year when the sky glows orange, leaves fall, and we plan elaborate costumes, or whether it’s just time for a fun club night, nothing catches our attention like stuff that glows in the dark. Glow sticks, glow paint, and now glow in the dark nail polish!
Check out these photos and swatches for the lo-down on Julep’s Nicola glow in the dark nail polish!

When Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart graduated from business school and founded her own company, we all got pretty lucky, because the company she started was Vaute Couture, bringing us drool-worthy vegan coats made from eco-friendly recycled materials. Vaute Couture is now starting to push the concept of vegan clothing to the forefront of fashion consciousness.
Vaute Couture first caught my attention last Fall when I saw their stylish weather-resistant coats online during a pre-sale. When I found out that I could help finance their new production of Fall coats just by purchasing one in advance at the discounted pre-sale price, I was sold!
*Right now you can get 25% off new Vaute Couture coats with code LOVEYOU2 in celebration of their being named Company of the Year in the 2010 Veggie Awards.

Meilily Featured ShopStyle Look: Camel & Capes for Fall!
Gearing up for warm Fall spices, jewel-tones, and soft textures with uber-trendy jeggings.
Judging from the trends at the Fashion’s Night Out runway show (webcast), it looks like Camel is the hot color for Fall fashion! This Look centers around a beautiful Alexander McQueen Wool Kimono Cape in Camel ($3,420). A girl can dream, can’t she?!
The one thing in this look that I probably won’t be wearing anytime soon is the jeggings (jean leggings). Despite the fact that jeggings make my legs look like two fighting elephant seals, I so want them to look good on someone else – perhaps someone wearing a classy camel-colored cape…

Peacekeeper Cause-metics is celebrating their 6th Anniversary with a one week sale ending soon!
From April 7 – 14, 2009, get 20% off Peacekeeper makeup from www.iamapeacekeeper.com, always with free shipping!
I’m a big fan of the Peacekeeper Cause-metics philosophy of producing safer cosmetics while promoting women’s rights. Did you know Peacekeeper donates all after-tax profits to women’s health and human rights concerns?
I discovered Peacekeeper a while back when looking for a nail polish with not-so-toxic ingredients and also vegan-friendly products. Now, one of my favorite Peacekeeper products is the Nail Paint, a nail polish (Big 3-Free) that wears like iron, yet removes easily.
Meilily Shopping Tip: Consider ordering a custom gift set (including nail polish, lip gloss, and lipstick) if you’re interested in trying several Peacekeeper products, since you can save a little money that way.
Do check back for Peacekeeper products photos and reviews! from Meilily

Meilily has found the most amazing makeup brush ever, and you’re gonna love it!
The Kabuki Brush #181 by Stript Makeup is hands down the best kabuki brush ever! Not only is this brush super soft and extremely dense, but it is also made of vegan synthetic bristles that are cruelty-free. You can’t beat a makeup brush that works well and is also cruelty-free!
The taklon bristles on the Stript Kabuki Brush are even crimped, unlike most synthetic bristles out there, and apparently crimped synthetic bristles are more similar to natural hairs and can hold makeup better than straight synthetic bristles. When I heard that the Stript Kabuki Brush was crimped, I was sold!
The Stript Kabuki Brush retails for $38, and is well worth it. Kabuki brushes can be used to apply mineral makeup, blush, and more. To find out more about Stript Makeup and to find beauty stores where Stript products are sold, check out their website, StriptMakeup.com. The Stript Kabuki Brush is currently available on Amazon through Beauty Collection, where I got mine.
Meilily says: Love the Stript Kabuki Brush!
