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.

The staff at b-glowing.com all have our favorites spanning makeup, haircare, fragrance and more which is why we combined them all in our staff picks page! There's something about a staff pick that perks my attention just like when I'm at the video store and looking for suggestions. In beauty, many times we find new products through word of mouth so it was great to see that the Kitty Blusher Stick from Paul & Joe Cosmetics Spring 2012 Meow Collection made the staff picks in People magazines Style Watch! Beauty assistant Maddy Zollo loved the Paul & Joe Blush Stick because, "this cute cat-inspired blush adds some fun to your beauty routine." For only $28 this blush stick has a carved out cat-in-the-hat while the other side is smooth. Simply draw three lines with the smooth side across your cheek like a cat scratch and then blend!

According to the Beauty Counter Blog on Style.com, "women the world over are letting out a collective purr" over the Kitty Blusher Sticks from the upcoming Paul & Joe Cosmetics Spring 2012 Meow Collection that will be dropping this February. The gorgeous floral print packaging the brand is known for still remains, but what has been added is a pop up "cat in the hat" as you turn the lipstick inspired blush stick. Even though I'm on "team dog" I can't help but be won over by the kitschy-kitty-cute Meow Collection. The Paul and Joe Kitty Blusher Sticks are a cream to powder formula that comes in three different wearable shades. Glamour Puss (a pearlescent beige, ideal for highlighting), Minou (classic rose) and Catfight is a bold coral. For only $28 each, you can choose what kitty to take home from the pet store! If you fell in love wiith Paul and Joe's Kitty Lipstick from last season you'll love this!

To radiate from within. To seem as if they're walking on water. To look glamorous whilst still capturing the natural beauty they were born with. The Golden Globe actresses last night simply took my breath away with many bringing back one of my favorite trends: ethereal beauty. Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara (ok, maybe she was channeling he dark side of ethereal), Heidi Klum, Elle Macphereson, Emma Stone rocked my fashion core. Channel and recreate the major beauty trends of the Golden Globe awards by following these steps:
First off ladies, it's all about the preparation. Unless you're divinely blessed which let's face it only a select few of us are then we have to work, work, work for perfection and that all comes down to taking care of our skin. I know it's not always a sexy topic, but at the end of the day prepping your skin with a mask or serum can really make your makeup ever better! If you don't trust me, then trust Hollywood because most of them swear by GLAMGLOW. Created in Hollywood, for Hollywood, and little people like you and me of course, the GLAMGLOW Mud Mask! Quickly becoming a b-glowing staff favorite, this miracle mask gently exfoliates your face with green tea leaves and miracle mud dredged from the exotic South of France will leave your skin glowing from the inside out.
Let's talk about the mane. Up-do's, french chignon, 60's beehive, or Elvira Adams straight, there was plenty to talk about in the hair style department. However, I'm a sucker for soft waves a la Elle Macpherson who look absolutely stunning last night in a gorgeous gown and her signature beach tousled hair. The woman doesn't look a day over 35! To recreate her soft romantic curls it's all in the tools baby and my favorite is T3's Single Pass Whirl Curling Wand. It has a tapered barrel to allow for a loose and distressed curl that doesn't look so darn perfect which is exactly what we want! With all of T3 hair styling tools, the heat chosen remains the same throughout the entire styling process which also cuts your hair prep time in half!

Ok I know Valentine's is kind of a cheesy holiday to celebrate but I love getting presents so I always have the, "But it's Valentine's" line on the backburner for my hubby. This chocolates and flowers holiday will be here in just a few weeks so I thought I'd give some great ideas for my fellow beauty junkie sisters who are a little bit underwhelmed by the classic gifts. Here are some must have beauty items that will make a perfect Valentine's....
The latest addition to the Clarisonic family comes in pink or white and has been updated from the classic Mia by having two different speeds as well as a 60 second T-Timer to ensure you're cleasing for the required 60 seconds. This is a great one to give the male loved one in your life as well. Watch your skin change over the course of a few weeks due to it's powerful sonic cleansing that gently exfoliates dead skin cells and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
Paul & Joe's Kitty Blusher Stick
I'm not even a cat lover but I can't help but get a little excited over Paul & Joe's Spring 2012 Meow Collection. The Kitty Blusher stick comes in three different shades and comes in lipstick style packaging and application. Turn the capsule and watch as a cat in the hat pops up to say hello! My personal fave is Minou because it's a gorgeous soft pink that I can wear everyday with any look.
Your wedding will be one of the most memorable moments in your life. From the dress to the decorations everything should be perfect and that includes your makeup. For my wedding five years ago I was so picky about not wanting to look like I had a pancake face that I ended up spending a butt load of money and doing it myself to make sure I looked like a more glamorous version of myself. If you don't plan on having a makeup artist then take a look at my picks below to create a beautiful makeup look for your wedding.
Firstly, the foundation is always one of the most important products as you want a formulation that is light and breathable. I always want my skin to be seen but perfected, not literally camoflaged and suffocating. The perfect foundation for this would be Jemma Kidd's Light As Air Foundation. This ultra-light product will provide a natural foundation for your skin along with a velvet feel and soft focus finish. Your skin will be left matte, without any shine for photos! This was also just featured in GOOP by Gwyneth Paltrow's makeup artist.
I don't always like to use a powder but for photos I think it's important to have just in case the nerves cause you to sweat and have more shine than usual. Paul & Joe's Kitty Matte Pressed Powder goes on effortlessly and feels weightless. Comes with a slightly darker shade for creating contour and a transluscent clear shade for a flawless shine free complexion. This line is also part of the Spring 2012 Meow Collection that is flying off the shelves!Read More »
It has certainly been a month for the kitty cats since the very popular launch of Paul & Joe's Tenth Anniversary Meow Collection. We can barely keep these products on our shelves due to public demand as well as all the magazine beauty editors that have fallen in love with this purr-fect range. The Face and Eye Color Palette was featured in Oprah's 'O' magazine and now the Paul & Joe Lipstick C in Sex Kitten has just graced the pages of Lucky. In the Beauty Spy section, the kitty lipstick was featured amongst others items that had a certain floral 'je ne sais quoi' about them. The beautiful paper packaing that surrounds the lipstick is on it's own a collectors item. In fact, many of the prints that are used on the makeup line are actually taken from the prints used on the latest Paul & Joe clothing seen on the runways! All three of the kitty lipsticks are gorgeous with Sex Kitten (nude beige), Meow (a natural pink) and Catwalk (a glamorous orange hue).
