Top Picks: Fragrances to 'Fall' For

Posted on 09/19/2013

Shop Fragrances here.

The leaves are slowly changing and as they fall, it's a great time to explore new fashion, beauty, and especially fragrances.

In this week's 'Top Picks', our b-glowing.com staff is raving about some of their favorite scents for the new season.

Juliette Has a Gun Miss Charming: Elegant and sensual Moroccan Rose combines with wild fruit and musk to create this bold and deep fragrance that reminds us of a shot of whisky and a velvet blazer all at once. “Miss Charming is a great name for this perfume, because that is exactly what it is. A beautiful rose fragrance with depth and femininity. Even if you aren’t a traditional fan of rose, it will charm your socks off!”

Sarah Horowitz Perfect Coconut Milk: This eau de parfum is easy to wear, and guaranteed to please the nose of everyone around you. Light enough for any occasion, the fusion of coconut, almond, and a hint of orange blossom is absolutely lovely and an all-around staff favorite. "This is a year-round scent, but it's expecially great for fall because the vanilla and coconut are so warm together. It just reminds you of curling up with a good book and a soft blanket."

Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy No. 6: Picking just one scent from this line was difficult, but we decided on this white orchid, vanilla, and exotic woods-infused offering. Don't let the scull and crossbones scare you, while this scent has a deep rich tone, it's still light enough for almost anyone to wear daily. “There is absolutely something sexy about this perfume, but it also very wearable and professional. The woodsy and ebony scents give an air of maturity while the vanilla warms it up to leave you feeling super confident.”

Aromachology Sophisticated and Sensual: Who says pink isn't for fall? This fresh and playful floral scent is a nice option for anyone looking to take a little summer with them this season. Grapefruit and white lily play nice together, while sandalwood adds the warmth we look for in autumn fragrances. “This is a scent for every day. It is light, pleasant and even a little playful. The white flower and citrus combination can be worn by anyone.”

Tips & Tricks: NuFACE Tutorial

Posted on 09/18/2013

Shop NuFACE here.

This technology is one of the latest and greatest in the anti-aging industry. Used in all of the top spas and medical offices for facial toning, NuFACE is noninvasive, effective, and often referred to as a “non-surgical face-lift”.

How does NuFACE work?

Microcurrent technology delivers low-level currents sending soft, gentle waves through the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This method doesn’t just cover-up wrinkles and fine lines, it gets to the source! Think of it as a magic wand that turns back the clock!

Who is NuFACE for?

A-list celebrities have turned to microcurrent facials to keep their skin looking flawless every time they face the paparazzi on the red carpet. Madonna, Kate Winslet, and Jennifer Lopez are just a few Hollywood ladies that have this technology to thank for their youthful looks. For those who are 30 or older, microcurrent helps to maintain firm skin and its silky texture. As users reach the age of 50 and beyond, microcurrent works to naturally lift sagging and wrinkling skin for a more youthful appearance.

Why NuFACE?

The NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device is the only handheld microcurrent device that has been clinically proven to improve skin tone, facial contour, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. With this easy-to-use device, you can hydrate and revitalize your complexion for softer, smoother and more youthful skin overall.

Ready to use your NuFACE device? It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

#1 - PREP: Apply any NuFACE Infusion Serum (Nourisher, Smoother, Lifter, Collagen Booster) followed by NuFACE Crème Primer to your targeted treatment area(s).

#2 - LIFT: Glide the NuFACE device over the natural contours of your face.

#3 - FINISH: Wipe skin with a warm, damp cloth, then apply your toner, serums and moisturizer of choice.

Move from nose to ear for cheek application.

Move device in an upward motion from brow to hairline for forehead treatment.

Ready to see results? Shop NuFACE here.

Katelyn: (Right hand) butter LONDON Wellies (Left hand) butter LONDON Slapper

Kayla: RGB Cosmetics Oxblood
Ready for summer to end, our Brand Assistant Kayla welcomes fall with a 5-free vampy wine shade. "With Fall quickly approaching, I wanted something new so I went from blonde to brunette with my hair and I wanted to play-up the dark on my nails as well!"

Holly: LACC 1957
Craving something neutral, but fun, our Brand Associate Holly reached for this vegan pale pink to give her nails a pop of color. "I wanted something sheer that allowed my natural nails to peek through. I love that you can layer 1957 to get the exact coverage you are looking for. It's like two polishes in one."

Nina: Deborah Lippman I Fought the Law, layered with Deborah Lippmann Va Va Voom

Tips & Tricks: Depotting Your Lipsticks for Z Palettes

Posted on 09/04/2013

Shop Z Palette here.

Did you know you can store more than eyeshadows and other powder products in your Z Palette? You can also depot creamy beauty items like lipsticks and concealers.

In this week's 'Tips & Tricks' post, we'll teach you how to depot your favorite lipsticks for your Z Palette using an oven and 10 Metal Pans. This quick trick saves you space both in your makeup drawer and in your suitcase when traveling! You can fit 16 Metal Pans into a Small Z Palette, 50 Metal Pans into a Large Z Palette, and 60 Metal Pans into a Pro Z Palette. That's a lot of lipstick!

Preparation: Collect the 10 lipsticks you would like to store in your Z Palette. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Step 1: Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Space the empty 10 Metal Pans across the baking sheet.

Step 2: Starting with one lipstick, remove the lid and twist product out of the tube. Using a butter knife or cuticle pusher, trim the product out of the tube and press product into one of the empty Metal Pans.

Step 3: Repeat this process until all 10 Metal Pans are full.

Step 4: Once preheated, place your baking sheet in the oven for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, checking regularly.

Step 5: After product appears level in Metal Pan, remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Once cooled, your depotted lipsticks are ready to be arranged in your Z Palette!

Tips: Every oven and lipstick is different, that is why we recommend you test this method first with an older lipstick you no longer care for. Some lipstick tubes contain more product than others. Make sure you don't overload your metal pan with too much product!
