Meilily Product Pick: Stylish Hi-tech Jawbone Headset

Meilily: Jawbone Headset in Black

Meilily says: Hi-tech hands-free headsets can be stylish too!

While geeky gadgets don’t typically fit in the realm of fashion and style, Jawbone headsets made by Aliph are changing that.  While other bluetooth headset makers have started targeting fashion-conscious female consumers with girly colors and blinged-out carrying cases, Jawbone is really the first headset to truly turn heads, both male and female, based on good product design alone.

Jawbone headsets originally rose to stardom in the gadget world for their patented NoiseAssassin noise elimination technology (once developed for military use), however the original Jawbone headsets were a bit large and clunky. The second generation re-designed Jawbone headsets (a.k.a. Jawbone II) were smaller, sturdier, and used different ear hooks, and unfortunately they started making them in market-pressured metallic-frost colors like Rambling Rose and Babbling Blue. IMHO the basic black Jawbone looks just fine!

*Now, Aliph is launching their newest re-designed Jawbone headset, the Jawbone PRIME, available (in candy colors) in stores May 2, 2009 or by pre-order online.

First Lady Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

Monday, March 2nd, 2009 | General, Photos | 1 Comment

Meilily: Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

Meilily: Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

The March 2009 issue of Vogue Magazine features an historic and inspirational cover photograph of First Lady Michelle Obama, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.  Looking relaxed, confident and real in the cover photograph, Michelle Obama is poised and calm in repose, wearing a beautiful magenta silk dress by Jason Wu.

It just might be true that Michelle Obama really is “the First Lady the world’s been waiting for” as Vogue Magazine has dubbed her.  Michelle Obama, who can pull off wearing both designer fashions as well as off-the-rack clothing from J. Crew and White House | Black Market, does not come across as stiff or guarded as First Ladies sometimes can.  We just can’t seem to get enough of First Lady Michelle Obama’s reachable style and down-to-earth presence.

Moreover, if the Michelle Obama March Vogue cover is any indication, this spring we are in for a treat, recession or not.  I expect that magentas, fuscias, and wines will be fashionable shades for spring, and that Taiwanese designer Jason Wu, › Continue reading

Product Pick: MAC Brow Set – Photos & Free Shipping

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009 | Free Stuff, Makeup, Photos, Product Picks | Comments Off on Product Pick: MAC Brow Set – Photos & Free Shipping

Meilily Product Pick, Product Photos & Free Shipping Alert!

Meilily:  MAC Brow Set (in Showoff)

Meilily: MAC Brow Set (in Showoff)

By now you may have heard the buzz about the new MAC Cosmetics Collection, “Brunette Blonde Redhead” (BBR), featuring makeup that is “formulated to be coiffure-complimentary.”

While all the hubbub has been about the Limited Edition BBR Mineralize Skinfinishes, I have discovered a quietly brilliant standout product from the collection – MAC Brow Set in Showoff for brunettes.

MAC Brow Set in Showoff is a unique tinted brow gel that grooms and sets brows (or other facial hair) in place while adding some shine and subtle color.  The formula lasts a long time with no flaking, and really holds brows in place.

*Oh, before I forget, MAC is offering free shipping on any order from February 24-March 1, 2009! No code needed.*

Showoff is a dark brown shade with subtle coppery-bronze shimmer, and on the brows it is much darker than it appears in the tube and in the photos.  Don’t be afraid of the color!

MAC Brow Set is the first brow product that has truly worked for my thick dark brows, and it comes in several flattering shades.

Meilily Product Pick:  Shaving Soap in a Bowl

Meilily Product Pick: Shaving Soap in a Bowl

Meilily Product Pick & Gift Idea for Him!

If you’re looking for a great men’s gift idea, look no further.  L’Occitane’s Cade Shaving Soap and Bowl set makes a fantastic gift!  The solid shaving soap is subtly scented with Cade juniper and lathers up really well with a shaving brush.  This shaving soap set comes with a sturdy metal bowl with lid that looks great on a countertop.  At $44 for the set (or $16 for the soap, $28 for the bowl) the L’Occitane Cade Shaving Soap and Bowl are both worth paying a little more for and are high quality products.

Great Nail Polish Swatches and Free Nail Polish!

Monday, January 26th, 2009 | Free Stuff, Nail Polish, Photos | Comments Off on Great Nail Polish Swatches and Free Nail Polish!

Recently, Meilily has become addicted to some really useful nail polish swatch sites with photos showing what various nail colors look like in real life.  Both sites have nice close-up photos and detailed product comparisons.  Checking out these swatch sites is an easy way to try before you buy!

Currently both sites feature the same special deal for a free bottle of Misa nail polish (through Misa Cosmetics) until the end of January.  (See the Scrangie free polish post and Polish Addict post for details.)

Meilily Product Pick: Cruelty-free Kabuki Brush by Stript

Saturday, January 24th, 2009 | Photos, Product Picks, Tools and Brushes | 2 Comments

Meilily Product Pick:  Stript Kabuki Brush

Meilily Product Pick: Stript Kabuki Brush

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!
