BY TERRY Baume de Rose Obsession

Posted on 04/11/2014

Shop b-glowing.

We’re obsessing over BY TERRY’s Baume de Rose, which is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. Created by Terry de Gunzburg out of her adoration for roses, this product quickly became a cult favorite for lips in desperate need of relief. “I dreamed of the ‘Rolls Royce’ of the lip balms, a beauty must-have that would wonderfully transform even the most damaged lips,” she says.

Working with her research labs, Terry found a melt-in balm packed with lipo-regenerating substances, with the nourishing power of rose wax, hidden amongst the formulas. They discovered “a nourishing, replenishing, anti-aging formula that would leave the lips plumped, younger looking and radiant with vitality. We were about to invent the ‘jewel’ of lip care!” Terry says.

The baume was Terry’s first “ode” to the rose, which, when touched, feels much like skin. “Indispensable in all seasons, this rare treasure of nutrients makes sure lips are soft, smooth, plump, and revitalized, and keeps cuticles looking trim,” Terry says.

Now, 10 years old, it’s become a beauty staple for countless women...b-glowing included! For the anniversary, Baume de Rose has a special look, covered in graffiti hearts. With a silver loveheart design, the limited-edition jar is a stylish vanity companion.

If you’re ready to try this cult-classic, obsession-worthy pick, shop now!

The Gentlemen of Blind Barber

Posted on 04/07/2014

Shop b-glowing.

The men of Blind Barber have always been about community. With their shops in New York and California, they’ve become a place for guys to gather and groom. It’s where men kick back, grab a shave over a cocktail, and connect.

Blind Barber is a lifestyle, where individuality is expressed through creativity. The coolest, most kind guys of the barbershop world are experts in grooming, of course; but beyond that, they’re also advocates for the community.

They've turned facial hair into a way to show they care through such organizations as Mustaches for Kids (they grow, as does support for children's charities) and No Shave November. They've also partnered with the likes of Terrell Owens to raise research funds for Alzheimer's Association, and worked to gather toiletries for Culver City's local non-profit, Beauty Bus.

For these reasons and more, we’re honoring Blind Barber as our first Man Crush Monday brand. Not only do they create superior grooming products that help save time and frustration (we especially love Regimen’s easy three-step system) but they also give back to the community they’ve worked so hard to create.

Ready to spoil your your own Monday Man Crush? Shop Blind Barber now.

We’re always thrilled to covet butter LONDON’s newest collection, and the newest—Lolly Brights—is bold and playful! The lacquers, Lippy’s, WINK eye pencils, CHEEKY cream blush, and WINK mascaras are tinted for more than a pop of color, but rather for a burst of color.

You can mix and match shades, or go full-on colorful, for a dynamic look that’s sure to turn heads. The brand’s obsession with color and passion for creativity is never in short supply, and we were feeling truly inspired when we put our own Lolly Brights look together.

Cult Classic Beauty: 100 Percent Pure

Posted on 03/27/2014

Shop b-glowing’s Cult Classic Picks.

At b-glowing.com, we pride ourselves on introducing beauty devotees to new, innovative brands. But how do you know which products to try within a new brand you've only just discovered? In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques (say that five times fast), we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

One of the newest brands to b-glowing is 100% Pure. As you may have guessed, all of the brand’s products are made using only all-natural, organic, and vegan ingredients, and everything is toxin-free.

What especially makes this brand unique is how it’s created and how it’s colored. The makeup is all fruit-dyed, bath + body and hair products come in scents reminiscent of the farmers market, and the skincare line uses super foods for a luminous glow.

Some of our favorites include the Argan Oil Hydration SPF 30, which protects against skin cancer, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark sun/age spots by using 100% natural, 100% vegan, and gluten-free ingredients. As spring begins to shine, this product will be an absolute necessity for healthy skin!

New from L'Artisan Parfumeur

Posted on 03/21/2014

Shop b-glowing.

L'Artisan Parfumeur just released new luxurious, unisex perfumes that encapsulate French charm, beauty and romanticism. Amour Nocturne, Déliria, and Skin on Skin are the latest, unique creations from Bertrand Duchaufour that are both sensual and sexy.


Bertrand has worked with L'Artisan Parfumeur for more than 10 years, creating beautiful scents that play on natural compositions and connect some of nature’s most incredible fragrances. Working on two basic fundamentals, Bertrand finds balance in opposites (when opposites attract). Secondly, everything is transformed, not lost or created. By distorting and dissecting nature, he’s been able to compose more than a dozen scents for L'Artisan Parfumeur.

 

Every one is the business nose Bertrand for his attention to detail, which is now easily recognized in his three latest creations. Déliria’s exquisiteness is found in its contrast between metallic, rhum and gourmand notes of toffee apple and candy floss. It’s perfect for a sense of intrigue and excitement. Amour Nocturne has notes of cedar, surrounded by soothing notes of hot milk and caramel that give way to a powerful burst of gun powder and orchid. Warm and mysterious, it wears like a second skin. Skin on Skin merges a sensual iris with a suede, velvet leather. Saffron, whisky, lavender and rose also intertwine for a musk effect.

These unisex scents are available now, and for a limited time, you can try two free at checkout!
