In Search of the Perfect Pink Nail Lacquer?

Posted on 04/04/2013

Shop RGB Cosmetics here!

HIPPxRGB has done it again. The makers of the award-winning Nail Foundations and Nail Tints collections have just released a new complexion-complementing line in pink called Nail Sheers.

These four pink shades range from light to dark (S1, S2, S3, S4), and like their 'sister' collections before them, allow the polish painter to pick the hue that best suits their hand. 

We love the simplicity of this manicure. The 'kiss' of pink is just enough to create a healthy, flawless effect - appropriate for any occasion or work environment.

Take Some Advice From The Beauty Experts!

Posted on 04/03/2013

Beauty experts are given that title for a very specific reason. With years of experience within the industry they've been able to develop a reputation for beautiful results and their word is like gospel. This month in Elle magazine the 2013 Genius Awards were announced compiling the best in hair, makeup and skincare revealing the products they can't be without. So listen up beauty junkies, if you're on the lookout for a great brush or hair product bypass all the lemons and go straight for these proven staples!

Hair stylist Ben Skervin swears by Mason Pearson's Nylon & Boar Bristle Brush to 'create good tension for a smooth blow-out.' Their brushes will literally last you a lifetime and you don't have to worry about a shine spray since their special bristles will spread sebum evenly over the hair strands. 

A Nuxe Paris best seller and staff favorite, makeup artist Nicolas Degennes loves to apply Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil Golden Shimmer to the décolleté for a healthy sheen. Tiny mother of pearl particles rest on the skin and give off a subtle sheen when sunlight is reflected off of it. It also enhances your summer tan!

It seems like the pros are all about oils just like we are. Bobbi Brown pays just as much attention to her hair as she does to her makeup line so when it needs some TLC she swears by Leonor Greyl's Huile de Palme because 'nothing makes hair as shiny.' Made with natural oils, this mane saver detangles, softens and adds a lustrous sheen with just a few drops!

Punky Pink in the Press

Posted on 04/02/2013

Shop Deborah Lippmann here!

We called it! We wrote about the new Deborah Lippmann Staccato collection back in March, and knew it was going to be making headlines.

Sure enough, in the latest issue of O Magazine, I'm Not Edible received high praise. The gritty take on classic pink polish received a 2013 Spring Makeup O-ward for "artful innovation". We couldn't agree more!

We love how this line contrasts the sweetness of a pastel with a dark, chunky black glitter. These edgy nails are fun for spring and summer, and act as the perfect complement for your bathing suit or LBD.

We are pleased to offer Deborah Lippmann Staccato nail polish in I'm Not Edible on b-glowing.com. Shop the rest of the Deborah Lippmann Staccato line here.

Spring cleaning isn't just for homes anymore! As the weather changes for the better, put a fresh face forward with the Clarisonic Acne Mia2™ Sonic Skin Cleansing.

What makes this system different?

This acne regime from Clarisonic includes the same Mia 2 sonic technology we have raved about, but is paired with a specialized Acne Cleaning Brush Head and Daily Clarifying Cleanser.

The Clarisonic Acne Mia2™ Sonic Skin Cleansing also includes a Acne Daily Clarifying Cleanser, packed with 2% salicylic acid and enriched with vitamins and botanicals to reduce redness and leave skin feeling soft.

We are so excited about this collection! While supplies last, we are offering an 8 oz. bottle of the Acne Daily Clarifying Cleanser (in addition to the 3.4 oz bottle that comes with your order) as a complimentary gift with purchase. Just use the code 8ACNECLEAN at checkout!

Zit. Zap. Gone!

Posted on 03/27/2013

Shop Tanda here! 

Zit.Zap.Gone. The Tanda Zap is known to clear pimples out before they reach 'code red' status, so much so that Dr. Youn spoke in length about this acne clearing device in length on the Rachael Ray show. One of the most affordable zit zappers on the market with a $49 price tag, it is clinically proven to clear or fade acne blemishes within 24 hours. It does this by using the power of blue light that has been shown to kill the bacteria that causes pimples as well as sonic vibration that helps to break up the bacteria so more is exposed to the blue light. 

The best time to bring out your Tanda Zap according to Dr. Youn is right when you feel the annoyance of a pimple starting to appear. Press the Tanda Zap to the affected area for two minutes, 2-3 times per day and you will notice it's gone or severely minimized in just 24 hours. If you get the occasional breakout at the most inconvenient times you'll appreciate this easy, and small zit zapper! Watch the Rachael Ray segment here!
