About Maree

Fueled by her love (obsession) of all things beauty, Maree Sye writes from the viewpoint of the everyday woman. Recently transitioning from a decade long career as an executive in the cosmetics industry to her current role as sales manager for a baby goods company, Maree has turned her insider information into a spectator sport. Choosing products appropriate for the office, understanding how to transition from day to night, and constantly seeking the elusive weekend “makeup, no makeup” look are the issues that keep Maree up at night. When she is not testing out products and blabbing about them on This That Beauty, you can find her blabbings on A Little Bit etc, her personal fashion/beauty blog – it’s a little bit fashion, a little bit beauty and a whole lot of sass. Maree currently resides in Bergdorf Goodman (or her apt in Midtown Manhattan), spends her summers vacationing at Sephora (or the dog park near her apt), and dreams of one day amassing so much makeup, that she will need a bigger home. Follow Maree on twitter @alittlebitetc or follow her down the street if you like – most likely she is on her way to pick up a new lipstick.

TTB Faves with Maree: Featuring Dr. Dennis Gross, Perricone MD and By Terry

Dr. Dennis Gross Sheer Mineral Sun Spray

It’s summer and hot as the dickens out, so this month it’s all about warm weather favorites. Sunscreen that doesn’t feel too heavy, foundation that won’t smother my skin and a loose powder that will make all my oily skin dreams come true. Here is a look at my favorite products from this past month: [...]

Great Neutral Summer Shades From Votre Vu Cosmetics

As someone who loves only a minimal amount of variety in their beauty routine, I am a firm believer that one can never have too many neutral eyeshadows and lipsticks/lipglosses in their collection. The bad news is the storage issue – where to keep everything. The good news is – since everything is neutral toned [...]

6 Neutral Sandals Under $150

6 nude sandals under $200

If one neutral sandal is good, then 6 is better, right? A girl needs options, especially during the summer when having sandals for any and every occasion is a necessity. However, with all the colorful frocks that are worn when it’s warm, deciding on a shoe can be exhausting. “Do I pick up the mint [...]

5 Products You Need For Amazing Summer Skin

Never is it more important to have great looking skin than in the summer. Bathing suits, sundresses, denim cut-offs – all of these look better with healthy, glowing skin. No scaly, dry or ashy limbs need apply. Typically I begin getting my body summer ready a month or two before, but trust me there are [...]

Pedro Lourenco Quad

Give me a collection that is comprised mostly of gorgeous nudes and easy to wear natural tones and I will go on and on and on for days about it. When I first saw the sneak peeks of this new MAC Pedro Lourenco collection, my first thought was “THAT QUAD”. It seemed like the most [...]

3 Best Foundations for Oily Skin

Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Foundation

I love having oily skin because it will (hopefully) keep me looking young for many years to come, however, having oily skin means that my nice morning glow will turn into a not-so-nice oil slick by the end of the day.  Because my skin is so oily, I am forever in search of the best [...]

TheStylisted: A New On-Location Beauty Service

Blow out from The Stylisted

If the title doesn’t lure you in immediately, seeing a picture of my blow out that I received from TheStylisted service will do it. At this point, blow dry bars are a dime a dozen, popping up in every major city faster than Starbucks (ok maybe not THAT fast). Last summer I had to go [...]

Give me all the pastel polishes! Ok, well maybe not the typical ones as much as the more obscure colors. I am drawn to them like a moth to a flame and Deborah Lippmann Spring Buds, a pale pastel green, was no exception.   Deborah Lippmann colors are a staple in my nail collection because of how [...]
