Meilily Product Pick: Stylish Hi-tech Jawbone Headset

Meilily: Jawbone Headset Black

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.

Meilily Loves: Artisanal Shoe Shopping at farfetch.com

Meilily: Farfetch Shoes

Meilily: Farfetch Shoes

Farfetch.com promises to fetch visitors the best and brightest of goodies from around the globe, delivered directly from far-off locales. Therefore, the site features one of the most interesting selections of shoes, clothing, and accessories around.

Though even the sale items at farfetch.com may be too expensive to splurge on at the moment, the sale section, particularly the sale shoe section, is definitely worth an inspirational peek once in a while.

For example, on my last visit, I was awed by the artistic construction of purple suede pumps by Chie Mihara (from Maison Nipi, Vigevano), the angled ergonomics of calf-length boots by Opening Ceremony (from SIX, London), and the scalloped classiness of gray patent leather peep toe heels by Emporio Armani (also from Maison Nipi).

Btw, last time I visited farfetch.com, they even had the Vivienne Westwood + Melissa Lady Dragon shoes featured by Meilily in salmon, but unfortunately they sold out.   Farfetch.com still has other unique Melissa shoes though, like the oddly appealing Mistrey by Melissa rubber gladiator sandals.

Meilily New Product Alert!

Introducing LCFA & OPI Breathe Life Nail Lacquer

Nail polish maker, OPI, has announced their new nail polish called Breathe Life, developed specifically to help the Lung Cancer Foundation of America (LCFA). OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish was created for the Lung Cancer Foundation of America to increase awareness about lung cancer, with OPI  making a donation to the Foundation to help find a cure and even sponsoring ads for the campaign.

Available starting April 1, 2009, the new OPI Breathe Life LCFA shade appears to be a soft cloudy sky blue color that looks intriguingly wearable for a blue nail polish. Given that practically any shade of blue nail polish is fashionable right now, OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish may be launching at just the perfect time.

To find out more about the Lung Cancer Foundation of America, see their website at LCFAmerica.org, the LCFA lung cancer facts page, and the LCFA Breathe Life campaign information page.

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.
