Top Picks for Your Lips

Posted on 09/25/2013

Shop lipsticks.

Fall is famous for color, which makes it the perfect time to adopt a new one yourself. Lipstick is a great accessory that can be bold, complementary or even work as a natural enhancement. Pucker up for this week’s top picks; b-glowing staff adores these lipsticks for the fall season.  

BY TERRY Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge, Fatal Shot: It plumps, moisturizes, disguises wrinkles and fine lines and finishes with a subtle gloss. Available in 15 colors, you can switch up your look daily, or stick to one hue for the season. For fall, our staff loves Fatal Shot: It’s a great berry color that looks playful without being too pinky.

ELLIS FAAS Creamy Lips, Blood Red: An easy, smooth application stains lips without the sticky feeling. You’ll get full coverage with a creamy finish, courtesy of a spongy applicator. We love the Blood Red color because it helps make a seductive statement without going overboard. It’s a good red for fall because it has a touch of brown, which tones it down for the perfect shade.

ILIA LIPSTICK, Funnel of Love: ILIA shades are beautifully modern with organic ingredients. The tones are generally more subtle, with a few pops of bold color, but they can all be layered so you can create your personal shade. Funnel of Love is a warm, nude shade for when you want some color that won’t clash with a smokey eye; or it’s great just for a natural palate.

KEVYN AUCOIN The Matte Lipsticks, Persistence: The color and the moisture last all day. Plus, the formula contains ingredients that minimize wrinkles over time, guaranteed. We love Persistence because it’s a fun, bold color that’ll turn heads! The more edgy violet color is perfect for the girl who likes to shake it up a bit.

Top Picks: Protection for Your Tresses

Posted on 10/10/2013

Shop Styling Products here.

It takes a lot of heat for your hair to look flawless—from drying to styling. But when you jump right in, you’re not giving your delicate hair follicles a fighting chance.

To prevent damage, and for a better overall look, use a heat protectant. When heat is applied directly to the hair, the hair shaft opens, making it vulnerable to damage or even color loss. But protectants cover the follicle so it stays sealed and the shaft maintains moisture, so your hair’s texture, shine, and fluidity will stay gorgeous (plus your heating tools will work better!).

With cold mornings coming, there will be less air drying and more blow drying. Can your strands take the heat? We’ve gathered our favorite b-glowing Heat Protectants, and all of them will help safeguard your locks while you have fun playing with different looks!

Sachajuan, Straight and Shine Spray: From the beloved brand known for its simple but effective hair care, we love this spray because it cares for you hair in the best ways: heat protection, added shine, touchable texture, and it’s easy to rinse out.

Shea Terra Organics, Argan Face and Body Oil: Hailing from Morocco, this specialized treatment is made from the Argania Spinosa tree, which produces oil that has twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil. You’ll reap reparative benefits, and it’s 100% natural. While you can use it everywhere on your body (score!), it also helps moisturize dry hair.

Oscar Blandi, Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray: This dry spray is packing keratin proteins that nourish and strengthen, so you’re fully covered. We love it because it’s also great for restyling, so you can reshape your look throughout the day with added shine and stronger hold.

Rare E’l’ements, Marula Cocktail: No, it’s not for drinking, but it is a great mix of nutrient-rich oils. You can use it as a leave-in conditioner for instant shine, added moisture, breakage prevention, shaping, styling, and flyaway and frizz control. It made our list because it’s lightweight and silicone free.

Leonor Greyl, Huile de Palme: This treatment can be used as a pre-shampoo or on its own, and it’s natural oils work to soften hair. It’ll detangle, as well as protect, with gentle, environmentally friendly ingredients.

Top Picks for Blushing Beauties

Posted on 10/16/2013

Shop blushes here.

Adding a little color to your cheeks help define cheekbones and can even make your eyes pop. Blushes—from neutral to daring—can really awaken your look.

We’ve come a long way since the days of having to pinch our cheeks to achieve that flushed color, and besides being thankful for now having beautiful options to replace that particular technique, we’re especially excited for the five following brands.

RMS Lip2Cheek in modest: This is a great color for fall, especially because berry cheeks are on trend at the moment. It adds a nice, natural pop of color to the apples of the cheek, and, bonus, it can be used on lips for too!

IT Cosmetics - Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks: This product works on everyone and gives the look of healthy, flushed cheeks. Designed by plastic surgeons with anti-aging benefits, this is another double-duty product.

Paul & Joe Cheek Color Refill in Cinema 04: This blush is a must-have for those who love a punchy coral blush. It’s easily blendable and can also be used to slightly contour. A little shimmer gives a radiant finish.

BY TERRY Blush Terrybly in Erotic Pink: When you want something a little less natural, this blush will definitely make a statement. Nothing too over the top, but this bubble gum pink is very feminine and always playful.

Ilia Multi-Stick in Cheek to Cheek: This blush has a few more brown undertones that look great on very pale skin or olive complexions. You can adjust the coverage and intensity of the color with the easy-to-apply stick design.

“I love the Chinatown Gloss. It’s so easy to apply and perfect for me because I'm still a little scared of bold lips.” –Elizabeth, Marketing Assistant

“I love Medieval since it's so hydrating and matches any skin tone. It really feels like no other lipstick I've tried before!”–Erika, Creative Director

“I love 'Hello Sailor' because it gives me a complexion-complementing berry tint that is perfect for fall!” –Holly, Brand Manager

“I like the Sinner lipstick in Bright Rose. It’s a full-coverage pigment with punchy neon pinky coral tone to it. It’s flattering on almost anyone, including on my fair skin and darker hair, because of all of the undertones. They seem to neutralize nicely while still being electrifying.” –Katelyn, Customer Service Director

It’s a new year, which means it’s a perfect time to try new things. Or, to adopt tried-and-true favorite from beauty experts. Yeah, we think the second one sounds like a great way to start the year, too!

For gorgeous hair, brushes, serums, shampoos, sprays, and so many others, can make a huge impact. We’ve compiled a few of our favorites that we think every beauty should have on hand to achieve the best hair…ever.

T3 Singlepass Whirl Curling Wand

“I curl my hair everyday because my hair has no body at all when it is straight. But when I curl my hair with this wand, my hair has much more volume! The curls are nice and a bit on the looser side so it creates beach wave curls. It's my favorite!” —Nina Lee

“This tames my very long, coarse hair to salon style in no time. I love the loose waves I get from this tool; the look is polished but seems effortless.” —Erika Vedaa, Creative Director

Mason Pearson Popular Brush

“I also love this brush. It's a classic tool that distributes the natural oils in your hair and gives a soft finish after styling.” —Erika Vedaa

Philip b Medium Round Brush

“It’s beautiful and functional. Great for blowouts as it’s made with natural boar bristles and distributes scalp oils evenly for shiny looking hair.” —Katelyn Stefani, Customer Service Director
