Paul and Joe Beaute is Hot Off The Press!

Posted on 07/13/2011

 

Another of our fabulous brands that was featured in Marie Claire magazine was Paul and Joe Beaute! Not only do they rock the catwalk every season with their fashion line, but they make us go beauty crazy for their in demand cosmetics line. I love a brand who's packaging is breathtaking and who really cater for the savvy and style conscious women of the world. That, in a nutshell, is Paul and Joe Beaute!

 

Paul and Joe's Lip Gloss B in Sailor's Delight is a gorgeous orange, coral shade that can really brighten up a darker skin. They say blondes have more fun, but they also have the most neutral palette to work with which means they get to take more risks with hair and makeup shades. Paul and Joe Lip Gloss B retails for $22.

Brad Pitt's On Set Love Affair with Talika!

Posted on 09/13/2011

 

Brad Pitt, sexiest man alive and the gorgeous Angelina Jolie's husband happens to have a little beauty crush on a certain product by Talika. 

 

It's not everyday that we hear about men voicing their opinions about beauty products, but let me tell you…..I love hearing about metrosexual males and their favorite face exfoliant, moisturizer, and must have foot cream. A man that looks after himself, within reason of course, is something we're starting to hear more about these days. In fact, the day my husband told me he was out of his exfoliant and could I please get him some more has been one of the proudest and most memorable times in my beauty junkie life.

bliss's Triple Oxygen +C Engergizing Cream Featured in "In Style" Magazine

Posted on 09/29/2011

I heard an old wives tale that every year your hair type changes. For instance, for most of my adolescent life I had very thick and dead straight hair however randomly one morning as I was towel drying my mane, it had all of a sudden gone wavy. I thought it was because I had curled my hair every morning over the years so eventually it just stayed. But I think there's also some sliver of truth to the fact that every 12 years or so your hair gradually changes, whether that's texture, slight difference in hue, etc.

Aging of course is a different story and every 10 years or so we do wake up and look in the mirror and say, "My god, I look older!" It's a battle we can't really win, but we can certainly have a stand-off, picture me old western style standing in a deserted street with my serums and creams in a holster where a gun should have been. Haha!

Actress Minka Kelly Loves the Rosie Jane by Leila Lou Candle!

Posted on 10/18/2011

Heading into the cold holiday season I'm just as much about a nourishing lip balm, blankets, and hot chocolate as I am about scented candles. Don't get me wrong, I love my apartment to smell inviting all the time but there's something about winter that makes me want to light an aromatic candle and snuggle. I'm not the only one either, Charlie's Angels actress Minka Kelly loves them as well and her absolute favorite is the Leila Lou by Rosie Jane Candle. This particular candle is great for all seasons as it has a very light and fresh scent of pear, fresh cut grass and tangerine.

Oscar Blandi Pronto Colore Root Touch Up & Highligting Pen

Posted on 12/15/2011

I depend on my colorist like I depend on food to survive. What is it about these people that sends us into a needy mess when we find out they're moving or all of the sudden quitting the business? Color is so personal and when we find a person who does it absolutely perfectly it's difficult to be willing to take a chance on someone new because after all, they really don't "know" your hair like Lisa-Jo, Amy or Charlene did.

There's also that same stressed feeling when we look at our hair and that familiar ugly dark landing strip is parting our head like the Red Sea. In these emergency situations we are not alone thanks to temporary coloring products such as Oscar Blandi's Pronto Colore Root Touch Up & Highlighting Pen. They work to bridge those few days or weeks until our next hair color appointment. This product was just featured in the December 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Living as the go-to hair item that offers great coverage or re-growth and to keep the grays at bay and also create subtle highlights.

The Oscar Blandi Pronto Colore Root Touch Up & Highlighting Pen works just like a thick mascara wand. All you have to do is lightly brush it through the roots like you would as if you were painting your nails. The product goes on wet but will dry pretty quickly. Just be mindful not to touch your hair to much as some of the color may be visible on your hands. This is an ideal product just to get you through those desperate hair color situations we come across every so often and is a great way to save money by elongating the time in between color appointments. Our PR person and uber-stylish gal Kendra absolutely swears by this product to get her roots camoflaged for the last minute cocktail party or meeting!

Faith Hill Loves Her Clarisonic As Seen in In Style Magazine!

Posted on 01/11/2012

Celebs love the best of the best so we weren't surprised to see Faith Hill confessing her love for her Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System in February's In Style magazine because, "It's like cleaning my face times 10. Way deeper than a washcloth." Best of all, these items don't fall into a category of super pricey treatments that only a celebrity can afford. The power of Clarisonic can be in your hands and changing your complexion day by day for as little as $119 if you purchase the Mia. For those who don't know about the powers of Clarisonic, let me drop some beauty knowledge. Using micro massage and tiny bristles, your skin will be gently and thoroughly cleansed giving you a 6X better cleanse than if you were to do it manually. Deeply embedded oil and makeup residue that has become trapped in your pores will automatically be removed, allowing your skin to better absorb your serums and moisturizers. If you fancy a portable sized device then your perfect match is the Clarisonic Mia or Mia2. For our hard core cleansers then check out the Clarisonic Plus that comes with three speeds for the face and body! Any purchase of a Clarisonic device automatically qualifies you for free standard shipping!

Paul & Joe Cosmetics Spring 2012 Meow Collection in O Magzine!

Posted on 01/11/2012

We're all experiencing rabid beauty madness over the impending arrival of the much anticipated Spring 2012 Meow Collection by Paul & Joe Cosmetics. I had the pleasure of getting a sneak peak at this kitti-rific range in New York last year and I can tell you there is some seriously cute makeup. In fact, the Paul & Joe Face and Eye Color Palette was just featured in the February edition of O, The Oprah Magazine! It's shown below in Kittycat, Purr-fect and Siamese Please. If you're a "cat" lady or just love and appreciate adorable packaging then this Meow Collection is well worth taking a peak at.

It's available for pre-order right now on b-glowing.com, however won't be shipped until February 1. I have a feeling these products won't last long so make sure you're one of the lucky ones! The Face and Eye Color Palette is in the shape of a cat and comes with three different colors per palette: A lighter shade for base, darker for contouring and then a highlighter on the cat's belly. So cute! If you take an extra peak you'll see that the cat's eyes are closed because when you rub a kitty's belly their eyes close with happiness! The Kitty Blusher Stick is my other favorite because one side has a carved out "cat in the hat" and the other is a smooth side. You gently apply three lines across your cheeks like a cat claw and then rub them together for the perfect blush application.

Mason Pearson Popular Mix Brush Seen In In Style!

Posted on 02/09/2012

If you're like me and using the same brush (Garnier) since high school, (clearly you can see hair brushes is not where I invest my beauty cash flow), then might I suggest a brand that has a huge following, Mason Pearson. This brand dates back to 1920 and is still going strong thanks to their exquisite design of handmade brushes that won't pull or damage the hair shaft. It was recently featured in March's In Style magazine as part of a series of hair products to get full and bouncy hair as seen on the runway models at the Versace show.

The Popular Mix Brush and Tail Comb was used in Step 3 of the look to brush through curls and tease the crown to create that full sexy-bombshell hair the Versace woman is so known for. No Mason Pearson brush will stear you wrong and they have a large assortment of different size brushes that all have a cushion made of natural rubber that allow the bristles to conform to the shape of the head and the premium boar bristles creates circulation of blood to the hair follicles which polishes the cuticle and results in increased shine! If you're staring in horror like I was at my old brush, then perhaps it's time to invest in a brand that will remain timeless and always get the job done!

Embracing 'The Grey' With Silver Fox Linda Rodin!

Posted on 03/28/2012

What is it about a gray strand of hair that causes total freak out and an emergency trip to the hair dressers? I remember noticing my first gray hair in my early twenties and thinking I had failed at fighting the aging process. Instead of just embracing it as inevitable part of life and going with the flow I was even more adamant about making sure those suckers were going to be hidden FOREVER.

As I've gotten older, ok I'm 32, I've come to appreciate silvery, grey hair as beautiful. It's really is striking, especially now that we have so many icons who are saying no to bleach and heck yes to being a silver fox such as Adele Chatfield-Taylor, Christine Lagarde and our favorite, Linda Rodin! In the March edition of Town & Country magazine the Rodin Olio Lusso creator says she always embraced her gray hair and never thought of coloring it, even when people said, "If only you died your hair you'd have thousands of men knocking down your door," and "I've always loved my hair and wouldn't change it for anything."

Soleil Organique Sunscreen In Town & Country!

Posted on 05/21/2012

Browse the entire Soleil Organique Sunscreen Collection here!

I'm sure many of us have heard our mother's stories that begin like, "When I was young we would lay out all day and lather ourselves in oil….we didn't ever use sunscreen." For many, this was the norm because melanomas and the dangers of unprotected sun exposure weren't as known to the public as they are now. Although we are more educated, people are still spending a lot of time in the sun and possibly doing irreparable damage that we don't know about until it's to late. 

In no way am I an advocate for 'no sun baking at all." I happen to love the sun, beach vacations and the way my skin looks with a bit of bronze color. However, we know a lot more about the dangers of the sun than my mother and her peers did at the time and we need to take that extra 5-10 minutes every hour or so to make sure we are properly protected. This is also where a great sunscreen comes into play. As seen in Town & Country, this year the FDA's new sunscreen regulations are coming into effect, with a maximum of SPF 50 being available and eliminating those confusing terms such as sunblock, sweat proof and water proof. The aim is to make sun protection less confusing and more appleaing.

Case in point, lifestyle brand Soleil Organique, that manages to capture the glamour of beach vacations in their stylish tan and gold packaging, yet very sensible and strict when it comes to having the safest possible ingredients. This luxury SPF range has been seen by the glamorous island hoppers of Turks & Caicos, Barbados and Nevis islands. As seen in June's Town & Country, Soleil Organique's Mineral Sunscreen Mist for Body SPF 45 boasts no synthetic fragrances, paragons, nor sulfates. Just the goods: Titanium and zinc oxide mineral screens and and anti-aging booster of antioxidant rich red algae. Shop this and the entire Soleil Organique sunscreen range here.

Post salon tresses only last for so long and we dread the day we realize the hair magic is gone and once again are back to our old devices and hair that never looks as good as when we left the salon. I drag that wash out as long as I can, sometimes even going a week because my hair is so thick. In the end, what has me reaching for my shampoo bottle is the smell and the dirty shine. Which is why Serge Normant's latest product, Avah Eau de Parfum, is ingenious in itself and works beautifully alongside a dry shampoo. 

 

It made the cut in Rachel Zoe's 'The Zoe Report' for it's heavenly fresh scent that stays locked into your strands for days on end. If you haven't guessed, Serge Normant's Avah is a perfume that can be used freely all over, but more specifically on your hair. Not only does it smell sensual with ylang yang, jasmine and amber but it's also a very caring product with nourishing properties of vitamin e, aloe vera, and jojoba.

This is definitely Marilyn Monroe's year. Even in death her signature style and glamorous flair warms our hearts and leaves us with many unanswered questions.

Marilyn entrusted her beauty regime to a select few brands who maintained her silver screen worthy skin. The August issue of Allure magazine pays tribute to this amazing woman through gorgeous photographs through memory lane and an inside scoop on what products transormed Norma Jean into Marilyn. A couple of her go to favorites were by Erno Laszlo, one even found on her nightstand at the time of her death.

Dr. Erno Laszlo treated Marilyn's skin throughout her career, even going to the lengths of creating a custom made product, Phormula 3-9, to fade a scar on her stomach. Filled with tamaru and marine collagen extract, this intensive nourishing balm reduces redness, puffiness and smoothes away wounds and burns. 

 

Erno Laszlo's Active Phelityl Cream is an intensive moisturizer that protects and nourishes the skin for a full 24 hours. It's no wonder Marilyn would put this cream on before she went to bed and left it as a reminder on her nightstand. Safflower seed oil improves skin's elasticity and a unique moisturizing complex with a PH nearly identical to the skin helps to maintain the fatty acids for essential skin function.

Clarisonic Featured on Good Morning America!

Posted on 01/10/2012

Shop the full Clarisonic collection here!

If you've ever doutbted the power and efficiency a Clarisonic cleanse will give then you need to check out the latest beauty segment on Good Morning America. Technology contributer Becky Worley amazingly spent five days cleansing one side of her face manually and the other with her Clarisonic hand held device. Interestingly enough, after doing a "touch" test after her first cleansing session to remove makeup both sides felt perfectly clean. In saying that, we can't see dirt, oil and makeup residue with our naked eye so the next phase was cleansing under a black light after applying flourescent makeup. Watch as the side that was cleansed with a Clarisonic had zero residue whereas the other side had patches of makeup remaining.

The perfect analogy for how a Clarisonic works is to picture dirt that has been trapped in between many different rock crevices. An earthquake starts and rattles those rocks loose to the point that all those dirt particles and tiny debris are freed. Clarisonic works with sonic frequeny/vibration to massage the skin gently with tiny bristles that rotate back and forth in opposite directions, helping pores to loosen and trapped dirt and oil to be released and rinsed away. Over time, added benefits include a reduction in pore size and wrinkle appearance. Another added benefit is that it will also help your serums and moisturizers absorb better because layers are being removed that would keep your products from providing their full effects. Take a look at the dramatic difference in by watcing the Good Morning America Clarisonic segment by clicking this link.

It doesn't take much convincing to prove that adding a Clarisonic to your skincare routine can only improve and enhance your complexion for the better. Starting at $119 for a Clarisonic Mia, consider it a slight investment for all the benefits you will receive. Not to mention, you receive FREE standard shipping when you order a Clarisonic device from b-glowing!

Shop Tatcha here.

Congratulations to b-glowing.com brand, Tatcha, for their bio feature on founder Victoria Tsai in April's O Magazine.

Victoria Tsai gave readers the inside scoop on how the Tatcha brand came to be. Tsai found inspiration on a trip to Japan back in 2009, after meeting a group of geisha.
 

"Without their stage makeup on, their skin is so clear and smooth, whether they're 20 or 80."


Three years later, Tatcha was born.

We loved reading about Victoria Tsai's beauty journey, everything from the first beauty product she ever owned (Hello Kitty blotting tissues) to her latest discovery, fellow b-glowing.com brand By Terry's Rouge Terrybly.
 

"A good friend who's a makeup artist told me recently that my brownish berry lipstick was aging me. He suggested I make my lips a touch lighter than my natural color instead. I switched to By Terry Rouge Terrybly Lipstick in Terrybly Nude, and I look so much fresher."

Try this pairing on nails and toes to keep your mani-pedi color wheel-correct. butter LONDON's oxblood red La Moss was also used on Emily Blunt's nails for her  cover shoot.

Serge Normant Punks-Out SJP at 2013 Met Ball

Posted on 05/07/2013

Last night's punk-themed Met Ball is the talk of the town today. Rocking everything from fishnets and spikes, to studs and leather, Hollywood's A-list took punk to the next level in a variety of interpretations.

One of the top head-turning looks was, hands down, Sarah Jessica Parker. Dawning a gorgeous floral ballgown from designer Giles Deacon, Parker's dress split down the center to reveal over-the-knee plaid tartan boots. The pièce de résistance? Her hair! Styled by b-glowing.com brand Serge Normant, and topped with a mohawk headpiece from Philip Treacy, SJP was embracing the theme from head to toe.

How did Serge Normant rock-out the diva's 'do? With his own products of course!

The acclaimed hair stylist began with Meta Silk Shampoo and Meta Velour Conditioner to create a bouncy, shiny canvas. Following with Meta Lush Volumizer for flexibility, Serge reached for his Meta Sheer Finishing Oil to establish invisible hold and weightless volume. Finally, after creating the complex updo of braids and twists, Normant finished the look with Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold for the big event.

US Weekly reported the must-haves for fall from celebrity makeup artists in-the-know in 'Back to Cool Kits'.

Hot off the Press: InStyle Beauty Loves Glamglow, Clarisonic, Dr. Brandt and Luxe

Posted on 09/24/2013

Shop b-glowing.com.

InStyle’s fall Beauty issue featured the season’s skin must-haves, and b-glowing.com brands were among the staples. Grouped by age, our products were picked for those in their 20s, 40s and 60s, which shows how easy it is to MAKE BEAUTY™ at any age!

GLAMGLOW® was among the “Top Priority” picks for its SUPER-MUD™ clearing treatment, with results that InStyle dubbed as instantly gratifying. The specialized formula fights breakouts, discoloration and even razor bumps and in-grown hairs. This clay mask is an overachiever, since it also improves skin’s texture, stimulates collagen production and battles multiple signs of aging.

For the flirty 30s, Clarisonic took top honors for a daily morning treatment (no surprise here), as the innovative tool evens skin’s texture and tone and leaves behind a touchable softness. The Clarisonic is also a b-glowing staff favorite because of its ability to make skin, you guessed it, glow!

Dr. Brandt’s microdermabrasion skin exfoliant was also named a necessity, but not just for the face. It can work its magic on arms, hands and the neck, brightening the tone like you’d expect during an in-office microdermabrasion session. Say goodbye to dead skin cells, and embrace your youth. In Style said, “Watch your skin take on a warm, backlit glow.”

The magazine named Luxe an essential for twice-a-week treatment for its ability to boost collagen production and fight signs of aging, especially for those in their 60s. Using breakthrough technology, Luxe immediately hydrates skin and reverses major signs of aging. It’s all about looking as young as you still feel (and maybe turning a head or two).

Hot off the Press: Celebs Love b-glowing Products!

Posted on 10/01/2013

Shop b-glowing.com.

Celebrities have the best access to the best brands. But here’s a secret: so do you! 

She Finds is dishing on the “50 Beauty Products Celebrities Can’t Live Without,” and b-glowing brands are among the chosen ones. 

LaLicious Sugar Kiss Scrub, picked by Emma Roberts: It’s a b-glowing staff favorite, too! A perfect combination of citrus, rose, and vanilla is an absolute treat for your senses. Plus, it’s a moisturizing exfoliator that you can simply rub on then rinse before stepping out of the shower. It’s natural and hydrating, so you can even skip your post-shower lotion application (you’ll smell amazing). 

Editor’s Note: After rinsing the scrub away, you can achieve a close shave for silky smooth results.

Rosebud Salve, picked by Selena Gomez: It does everything you’d expect from a great lip balm: moisturizes and calms for more kissable lips. But what makes it special is its ability to heal skin irritation and sooth minor burns. It’s not pucker exclusive; you can use it on dry elbows, nail cuticles, knees, or even for diaper rash! Which begs the question, would a Rose by any other name smell as sweet (or do as much)? 

St. Tropez Self-Tan Bronzing Gel, picked by Carrie Underwood: Streaking is a verb—not an adjective to describe your tan. With St. Tropez’s Self-Tan Bronzing Gel, this holds true, as you’ll achieve the perfect glow for days, without leaving behind any evidence.

WEI Gingko Leaf Repairing Face Treatment Pads, picked by Demi Moore: Demi makes aging look easy (and practically nonexistent). With Wei’s Gingko Leaf Repairing Face Treatment Pads, you, too, can tackle dehydration, sagginess, dullness, redness, and loss of elasticity. The travel friendly pads are suitable for even the most-sensitive skin, and you’ll see results in just 10 minutes.

So…what are you waiting for?

Adara- Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: InStyle magazine chose this nourishing body oil (great for the hair, too!) as one of its Best of Digital Beauty picks in the November issue, even calling b-glowing.com “Rad, Emerging Talent”.  While we’re honored on both accounts, we’re also excited for Adara’s well-deserved attention, as it’s one of our staff’s favorite products!

Etat Libre d’Orange- Archives 69: Also chosen in InStyle’s November issue, this inviting fragrance was another Best of Digital Beauty pick. With top notes of tangerine, pink berries CO2, and pepper leaf, we love the scent for its versatility and sense of freedom.
