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!

Meilily Product Photos: L’Occitane Limited Edition Peony Makeup Collection!

Exciting news! L’Occitane’s limited edition makeup collection is here! In select L’Occitane stores only, this rare garden-inspired Peony Makeup Collection is a must-see.

While wandering through a L’Occitane shop, I was drawn to a display of what appeared to be colorful flower seed packets. Imagine my surprise when I realized that L’Occitane, best known as a bath and skincare brand, has a new makeup collection out, and a pretty one at that. Each limited edition makeup shade is named after a particular peony.

Meilily’s top picks from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection:
Liquid Shine Lip Colour in 01 Marie Riviere (a flattering medium-pigmented gloss inspired by a “delicate salmon-pink peony,” according to L’Occitane)
Facecolour Powder in 02 Valse de Vienne (a pretty “glossy pale pink” blush/eyeshadow)
Lipstick in 03 Mme Louis Henry (a very sheer warm-pink shimmer lipstick inspired by “a pink peony with old-gold patina reflections”)

Meilily Product Pick & Photos: Shu Uemura Limited Edition Mini Brush Set by Tsumori Chisato!

If you like cute cat designs like I do, you’ll love the Shu Uemura Limited Edition Holiday Collection, which includes this Mini Brush Set designed by Japanese fashion designer, Tsumori Chisato. Luckily, the Tsumori Chisato makeup brush set, complete with super-cute winking cat design, is currently still available online at the Shu Uemura website for a limited time. Unfortunately, this collection has been out for a while and Shu Uemura is pulling it’s US brick and mortar shops, so your best bet is getting these online.

[Btw: Shu currently has an anniversary website special from May 10 – 14 with code HAPPY for 20% off and free shipping on orders over $50]

Even the box that the Tsumori Chisato Mini Brush Set comes in is fantastically cute – with gold metallic stars and, again, that adorable winking black cat!

Lucha Keys: Fred & Friends Luchador Inspired Kitsch for Your Keys

Meilily Off-Beat Product Pick & Photos: Lucha Keys, Stretch Pants for Keys!

I have been on a Luchador kick lately, so I just couldn’t resist showing these luchador-inspired key jackets by Fred & Friends, though key jackets are a far cry from the beauty and style products typically featured on Meilily. To be fair, Lucha Keys are described as “stretch pants for keys,” so keys can be stylish too!

Inspired by the distinctive masks of luchadores or Mexican wrestlers, Lucha Keys, made in blue-red and green-lime rubber, stretch over › Continue reading

Product Photos: Lipstick Queen – Butterfly Ball Lipstick

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010 | Makeup, Photos | 1 Comment

meilily-lipstick-queen-butterfly-ball-goodbye

Lipstick Queen’s Butterfly Ball collection of lipsticks has gotten some buzz, particularly since this collection is inspired by the famous quote from legendary boxer Mohammed Ali, “Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”

These lipsticks seem to be an exercise in juxtaposition – like sweet and sour or butterfly wings and bee stings – with the “sting” coming from the turquoise blue-purple flash of shimmer in each lipstick.

[fyi: Lipstick Queen is currently on sale at Gilt including the Chinatown Glossy Pencils, but unfortunately Butterfly Ball is not part of the sale!]

Meilily Gift Pick & Photos! Tarte Cosmetics Crown Jewels Lip Gloss Set

When I saw that tarte cosmetics was offering a new lip gloss value set specifically for gifting, I was impressed. As a huge fan of tarte cosmetics and of value sets, I decided I had to get my hands on one of these sets!*

Each tarte Crown Jewels Lip Gloss Set comes with three individually packaged and “giftable” boxes, each containing five mini lip glosses. In total, the set comes with fifteen paraben-free lip glosses, which contain tarte’s customary natural ingredients and smell a little like warm sugar.

Best Nail Polish Remover Ever? Priti Soy Polish Remover

Meilily: Priti Soy Polish Remover

Meilily Product Pick: Priti Soy Polish Remover!

Move over acetone! Hello, soy! Start out the new year with a resolution to avoid harsh chemicals in your beauty routine. One of the easiest ways to get a healthier beauty routine is to change your nail polish remover.

These days there are a growing number of plant-based better-for-you nail polish removers, and the hands down best polish remover I have tried so far is the Soy Polish Remover by Priti….

Not only does Priti’s Soy Polish Remover smell great (like sweet herb flowers), but it also contains biodegradable ingredients and essential oils, without yucky chemicals like acetone. This polish remover just melts away nail polish but doesn’t strip the nails of moisture! Instead, it feels slightly oily and seems to help prevent nails from looking dry and brittle after removing polish.

Personally, I think Priti Soy Polish Remover is the absolute best thing out there for removing nail polish in a not-so-toxic way! › Continue reading

Meilily Product Pick, Photos & Swatches! Paul & Joe Nail Enamel!

Ever since Meilily was introduced to the wide world of Paul & Joe Beaute, a Parisian cosmetics and skincare line created by Sophie Albou that is much loved throughout the globe, an intense Paul & Joe beauty addiction began to smolder. After receiving a Paul & Joe Beaute product from one of the ladies at eMakeMeUp.com, this addiction was set ablaze, and… hauling commenced immediately.

Paul & Joe Nail Enamel: Scented & So Feminine!

One of the most interesting products from Paul & Joe Beaute, and one of the products I first hauled, is actually the Paul & Joe Nail Enamel, not just because of its unique floral glass bottle but also because it is a scented nail polish! It applies just like any good nail polish, but then it also smells quite nice when dry – like soft fruity flowers – with no yucky chemical smell! Amazing!

Meilily Product Pick & Photos! Bird Vine Jewelry Stand from Urban Outfitters!

I’ve been on the lookout for nature-inspired jewelry stands – you know, the ones shaped like twigs and branches – ever since I discovered the variety of jewelry stands available at UrbanOutfitters.com. I recently picked up this lovely Bird Vine Jewelry Stand from Urban Outfitters, and love it! It is made of sturdy metal with an antique gold finish, and has branches, leaves, and two cute birds – all to hold and neatly display all sorts of baubles.

Product Pick: Aveda Comforting Tea

Meilily: Aveda Comforting Tea

Meilily Product Pick! Aveda Tea!

If it is anywhere as cold where you are as it is here, you may enjoy curling up and drinking lots of hot Aveda Tea. This is one of my favorite teas out there from one of my favorite beauty brands, Aveda. While I will admit it’s a little odd to be drinking tea from a company that is best known for its natural haircare and skincare products, I have gotten past the point of caring. Aveda Comforting Tea – and they only make one kind – is a unique tea that, I’ve heard, can get even coffee lovers hooked!

Aveda Tea has a warm and naturally sweet flavor that is not overly herbal or astringent, and it instead manages to taste nothing like the typically overdone flavors of mass-market caffeine-free tea.  It tastes more like a unique beverage that fits somewhere between asian loose leaf tea, mellow kona coffee, and Guiness. Ok, perhaps it is far from tasting anything like Guiness or coffee, but I would say Aveda Tea is to tea as Guiness is to beer. It’s just › Continue reading
