Our jobs here at b-glowing may seem all fun and make-up but some topics require serious exploration. The subject of kissing and lip glosses came up over lunch the other day and we decided we needed to compile a list in the name of research.
We came to the conclusion that there are some lip glosses that our men hate, some that when they see you applying it- they go in for a kiss just because it is that tasty, and some that we love because it keeps the color and/or shine even after the steamiest make-out session.
Here are our top gloss picks for locking lips:Read More »
There’s always one absolute favorite product in any girl’s beauty cupboard and for me it’s my array of Sara Happ Lip Scrubs. Although lip exfoliation is something I do on a random occurrence, I’ve fallen so in love with this brand and it’s cute packaging that I’ve become a collector of sorts. Is it a little obsessive-compulsive that I have to have them perfectly lined up and the labels facing outwards?
For those who aren’t familiar with the brand, Sara Happ specializes in gentle but effective sugar scrubs for the lips, a key lip balm called “The Lip Slip,” and a beautiful body scrub.
Normally her product scents are that of what you’d experience in your favorite bakery, but this summer she’s gone a bit fruity, not in the head, but in her latest limited edition lip scrub for summer, Sparkling Pink Grapefruit.
This delicious lip scrub has hints of sweet grapefruit and is a necessity during a season where our lips experience the harsh and drying rays of the sun. Make a weekly date with Sara Happ’s fabulous products!

'Tis the season to be jolly and to have cracked, dry and unkissable lips. However, my smackeroos aren't going down without a fight and what better timing to do something about it than with the arrival of Sara Happ's latest holiday limited edition: The Black Cherry Lip Scrub and Lip Slip Duo! I was so in love with her past holiday lip scrub, Red Velvet and honestly didn't think anything could top it but I was wrong. With delish aromas of luscious black cherry and hints of velvety warmth, this is the perfect product to gently exfoliate the sensitive dry skin on your lips and leave them feeling silky smooth and very kissable. Top it off with The Lip Slip for added moisture and gloss and your lip pillows are ready for that mistletoe.
This duo by Sara Happ truly is the perfect holiday gift, whether it be for yourself or a friend who loves bakery type scents and lip products. Both of these products would normally sell for $48 but you get this duo for only $40!! That's an $8 savings for a present you'll be hearing rave reviews about from the recipients for months to come.Read More »
Get in the spirit of spring with this season’s hottest lip colors: coral, orange and pink. These exotic, friendly shades are flattering for all skin tones, so every fashionista can enjoy the candy-colored hues. Use sheerer versions in a lip gloss during the day (like an Armour Beauty lip gloss,) and amp it up at night with an electrically charged hue from the Kevyn Aucoin cosmetics line.
Coral is the queen of lip colors this spring. Its bright hue matches any skin tone, can make your skin appear more golden and is perfect for virtually any of spring outfit. To make your lips look fuller, opt for a glossy coral lipstick or use the Ann-Margaret Opaque Lip Gloss by Armour Beauty.
Ready for something bold? Glossy or matte, orange lips freshen up tired winter trends. This color isn’t as forgiving as coral, so you need to make sure the shade of orange you use matches your skin tone, just as you would with a red lip color. If you’re not sure where to start, check out Armour Beauty’s Lucy Opaque Lip Gloss.Read More »

A lot of products slip under the radar in the beauty industry, which is why we are launching our new 'Hidden Gems' segment here at the b-glowing.com Magazine. We are excited to recognize our staff favorites, and give them the attention they deserve!
Shop Belmacz here.
Our first hidden gem is Belmacz Glow in Madder. This blood orange, gold leaf lip gloss was created by Belmacz founder, Julia Muggenburg, as an extension of her jewelry designs and fine art collection. Inspired by Renaissance master painter pigments, Madder is composed of 24-carat gold leaf, ground minerals, and holistic organic oils. The Belmacz Glow line gives your lips color and a natural luster, while feeling smooth and hydrating.
Why We're 'Mad' About Madder:
“I love Madder because it looks so luxurious and works really well to hydrate the lips and give them shine. The entire Belmacz Glow line is packed with pigment, so the shades can be worn alone, or on top of complementing lipsticks. Madder's bright red/orange color is almost neon, so it's on-trend for summer. When I want an effortless look, that is still fun and eye-catching, I dab Madder on my lips and I am out the door. I just love it!” - b-glowing.com Resident Beauty Expert, KatelynRead More »
