SAG Award Show Fashions

Hello Angels,

Last week we were on pins and needles waiting to see the fashion at the SAG awards.  I know it wasn't just me!  Well it was not a dissapointment.  There were different styles that graced the red carpet.

I looked around for some dupes for prom and came pretty close.  
So let's get started:

Helen Mirren in Escada (ENews)
This lush black and gold number was the clear leader amongst the other dresses of the same color.

Our friends at Jovani have a dress in a similar color and pattern.  Here it is:

Oprah Winfrey looked Royal in this beautiful purple gown by Badgley Mischka.(Zen Magazine Africa)
The color and fit was a perfect  for the Talkshow Queen.  It is forgiving and flattering.

For this particular gown, my dupe from is a rich royal blue:

My second favorite dress of the night is Amy Adam's gown.  For lack of a better phrase,"that dress was smoking!"  The American Hustle star is wearing Antonio Berardi:

That design and color are just stunning.  She looked amazing!

My dress for less is An ABS by Allen Schwartz. It can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue for $350.  The dress only comes in black:

If you are in love with the color, there is always this dress on

Last but not least.  This lady stole the show and the red carpet.  For a first time attendee, she decided on a gorgeous Gucci gown fit for the newest princess of the silver screen:

Lupita Nyong'o (Huff post)

OMG, look at that bejeweled neck!  
I searched high and low for a dupe. The closest thing I found was on

I think it would be a welcome suggestion for prom.  It is fun and feminine.

So Angels, were you in love with these dresses as well?  Or do you think I missed one?  Let us know who you thought was best dressed.  The Grammys are on tonight so it will be a fun night of fashion.  I will be back with my favorites,

Until next time Angels

Urban Decay Naked lipglosses

Hi Angels,

I was just minding my makeup business yesterday and I received this news by email.

Apparently urban Decay is going Naked again.  This time it's for your lips.  That's right, we now have Urban Decay Baked Lipgloss. There are nine glosses that Urban Decay says are laced with benefits.  One of these has to be our shade, right?

Here's a pic

With names like Beso, Liar and Walk of Shame to name a few we are bound to find something we like.  I will definitely be checking these out the next time I am at Sephora.  They are available at and at Macy's well.  Release dates may differ.

Anyone else interested?  Let us know what you think or if you have already bought 1 or 2. We would he happy to hear from you.

Until next time Angels

Viva Glam Rihanna's Red, Fearless in Frost

Hi Angels,

If you're in the Northeast I have the remedy for the snowstorm!  Makeup therapy of course.  Hit the net and purchase RiRi's Viva Glam lipstick.  It's now available.

Here's what MAC has to say about the collabo:
Rihanna’s blue-red with frost finish in a lipstick.  There is also a lipgloss as well. Every Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi’s signature. 
And remember Angels every cent is donated to helping people living with HIV/AIDS.  So to us at the Pretty Prescription it's a win/win situation.  If Rihanna's past collections are an example, these pretties will sell out.
So let us know what you think and if you decided to pick these up.  
Until next time Angels.

2014 Golden Globe dresses for less

Hi Angels 

If you are our friend on Facebook you saw us raving about some of the dresses the stars wore to the Golden Globes this past Sunday.  There were some hits and misses. Now we all know these gowns are couture and one of a kind pieces.  They are not what we wil find at our neighborhood Saks.

I decided to scour the net for someone's less expensive alternatives to the more memorable looks. Althought some are not exactly the same,they are in the same vain. Others are like rare pieces of art and  were not dupable in my opinion.  

Those undupable looks were:
Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive (credit Facebook)
What can you say about this other than, perfection?

The other showstopper with no ugly sister was Dame Helen Mirren's gown.
Helen Mirren in Jenny Packham (credit elleuk):
Glamorous and age appropriate without being dowdy.  She rarely gets it wrong.

These are the dresses I found dupes for:

Margot Robbie wore Gucci to the Golden Globes(credit blogger):

How bout this number by Jovani?(

Kate Beckinsale was stunning in this Armani Prive':

Jovani also has a similar style in a different color: 

The web was abuzz with Lena Dunham's appearance on the red carpet. The Zac Posen dress was a stunner whether you liked the body type wearing it or not. (Pic courtesy of Huffpost):
Hannah was serving face.  LOL.  You better werk!(a la RuPaul)

Here is a less expensive alternative by Jovani:

Last but not least is the Red Carpets latest muse.  The young starlet that everyone is clamoribg to dress. If you haven't seen 12 Years a slave meet one of the new faces of Miu Miu Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren. (Pic courtesy of eonline):
Everyone wanted to know who was going to dress her and what she was going to wear. Her look was PERFECTION and $7000 I might add!
Look at what your favorite Prescriber found for you.  ABS by Allen Schwartz at for $390:
Not bad huh?  I might have to bust open the piggy bank for this lil number.
These looks are perfect for prom or some gala event.  

Well Angels, I hope you enjoyed this Golden Globe Dress special.  Let us know if you like them or found a better one.  Definitely let us know if you found something similar to Cate Blanchett and Helen Mirren's gown. Don't be afraid to let us know if you think we missed a great look.  

Aren't the SAG awards this weekend? LOL. I wonder what's in store for us fashion obsessed.

Until next time

Sharon and Kelly Osborne Collection with MAC

Hello Angels,

The web is abuzz about some pictures on Sharon and Kelly Osborne's Instagram and Twitter pages.  Seems the Mother/ daughter duo have been secretly working on a collection that is set to release this June.

This is an interesting choice and I am eager to see what the outspoken women have in store for us.

Here are the pics:

Kelly's Instagram

Sharon's Twitter:

Nice right?  The cases are cute.  And by the way so is the pooch. 

So be on the lookout Angels when this releases later on this year.

Until next time

MAC Punk Couture Instigator

Hello Angels,

So the internet has been on fire for weeks in anticipation of the lipsticks in The MAC Punk Couture collection.  It finally debuted on the day after Christmas.  All of lipsticks  were matte in finish with some great dark colors in the mix.

I decided early on that I was going to get Punk Couture.  The swatches I saw online showed a matte blue/purple lipstick that I fell in love with.  Surely this was different from my other dark matte lipsticks?

I received it yesterday.  Even though it was pretty, on my lips it was not original.  And if my lips were not so dry from this blistering cold in the Northeast I would show you.

So unfortunately, at this time you will have to settle for a swatch.  If you have pigmented lips there is no distinct blue color.  It looks like a few other lipsticks I have in my stash.

Here is MAC's Punk Couture:

Photographs like a dream!  Sigh the blue is lost on me.  

Here is a swatch on NW43 skin with flash:

That is not what I imagined and it is not very different from I have in my stash.

Here are swatches of Punk Couture alongside some similar colors:

From left to right:
Punk Couture- matte 
Prince Noir-matte (redder)
Night Violet-mattene ( pinker)
Yung Rapunxel-amplified (darker and a little rosier)
Potent Fig-mattene (the closest dupe) glossier and a smidge darker
Smoked Purple- matte (darker eggplant)

If you don't have these colors, then Punk Couture is a welcome addition.  If you do, use a different liner and you won't be able to tell the difference.  All in all I don't regret my purchase but I could have lived without it.  

This and the other lipsticks are sold out online and probably most counters.  You can try your luck an call around to MAC retailers to find one.  Always be on the lookout for a restock on

Let us know if you bought any of the lipsticks and what you thought.  Please recommend some other duplicates for those that missed out.

Until next time Angels
