Nerium’s Science-Based Skincare

Find out why NeriumAD’s anti-aging skincare products have science on their side.

NeriumAD

When it comes to effective skincare products, there are some worth splurging on and some you should simply skip. So when we learned about a new line of products that are rooted in nature and science, and created with high-impact ingredients, we had to learn more.

NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment is one of the most groundbreaking products to hit the beauty scene, and it’s created a buzz on the pages of many magazines. Not only does NeriumAD contain the most effective ingredients available, but it also utilizes Nerium’s patented NAE-8 extract, which has proven to be effective in reversing the signs of aging.

But don’t just take our word on it! Nerium is so confident that their products are actually effective that they’ve sponsored clinical trials to back up their claims. You can see the stunning results here, and if you have any of the common skin complaints below, than head straight to nerium.com and get started on your skin transformation today!

Nerium AD Dramatically Reduces The Appearance Of:

  • Find Lines
  • Wrinkles

Three Halloween Makeup Ideas That Won’t Require a Costume

Break out the makeup brushes! Here are three creative Halloween costumes that won’t break the bank.

Halloween is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like us, you’re probably pulling your hair out because you still haven’t locked down your look. Somehow, you seem to find yourself in the same bind year after year. But don’t worry—coming up with a creative costume doesn’t have to involve a lot of work. All you need is a brilliant idea and a few key beauty products to carry it out.

This Halloween, we found three cool characters that are surprisingly easy to create.

Throwback Thursday

The ‘90s are back big-time these days—and what better way to pay homage to the past than with a #tbt costume packed with the perfect ‘90s makeup. Vampy lipstick (think “The Craft”) and charcoal eyeliner (outlining the entire eye) are the essential beauty ingredients for this outfit. Throw on a retro chocker and a spaghetti strap dress and you’ll be set to step out like an young Gwen Stefani in no time.

Best Beauty Buy: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry ($4.79, target.com)

Kylie Jenner

If you keep up with the Kardashians, you’ve probably noticed that the clan’s youngest, Kylie Jenner, has been sporting some seriously oversized lips lately. All you need to pull “a Kylie” is a muted lipliner with which to draw an exaggerated pout, liquid eyeliner to create a dramatic cat-eye and—if you’re feeling really ambitious—green hair spray for that dip-dye effect.

Best Beauty Buy: Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Precision Pen in Blacquer ($30, sephora.com)

Marc Jacobs Eyeliner

Basic

We’ve all seen the Buzzfeed features on basic females, and while the concept may be a tad controversial, it sure makes for a great Halloween costume. Simply stock up on shimmery pink lipgloss, flatiron your hair, and go bananas with the bronzer. A Pumpkin Spice Latte and a set of medium-sized pearls are your ultimate accessories.

Free NYC Event: The New York Festival of Light

This November, enjoy spectacular illuminations from world renowned artists at the New York Festival of Light.

NYFOL

World-class events rarely come cheap, a fact that’s especially true in NYC. Nevertheless, from November 6 – 8, city slickers will be able to experience a phenomenal show that has already been hosted in some of the most glamorous cities on the planet – completely free of cost.

The Festival of Light will make its first New York City debut, showcasing installations, sculptures and wearable technology, all of which feature the medium of light.  Previously seen in Sydney, London and Berlin, the highly anticipated event will take place in Brooklyn’s trendy DUMBO neighborhood, beneath the iconic Manhattan Bridge.

Some highlights include a Laser Light Show by famed architect, Howard Ungerleider and an LED umbrella installation designed by Beyoncé’s lighting director, Tupac Martir. The NYFOL is certain to be an event that goes down in mind-blowing history, so if you’re in or around New York this November be sure to stop by. For more event details, check out the official website here.

Workout Wednesday: Beyoncé Launches Line of Activewear

Break out the dance moves, because Queen Bey is about to rock your workout routine.

When it comes to the world’s biggest pop princess—or should we say “queen”—there’s not much miss Bey can’t do. So we weren’t exactly surprised to learn that Beyoncé is breaking out on a new business venture. The exact nature of that new venture, however, has us very excited!

According to WWW, Queen Bey has teamed up with Topshop to bring us a new brand of athleisure launching in fall 2015 (at the earliest). Now, if you stumbled over the word “athleisure,” don’t worry, we did too! Apparently, it consists of “clothing, footwear and accessories across dance, fitness and sports categories.” Sounds like street style sportswear to us!

But if you think Beyoncé just jumped on the celeb-collab bandwagon—think again. This mega music star doesn’t just add her name to activewear. She builds a brand all her own. “This is not a collaboration,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green stressed to WWD. “This is about building a brand and building a business—a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office.”

Beyoncé’s new business doesn’t yet have a name, but as long as her pieces have us shaking it like the single ladies, we’ll be lining up to buy.

The Best of Me Spa Week Giveaway

This Spa Week, we’ve teamed up with Proflowers to bring you the perfect movie-themed treat!

TheBestOfMeShareandWin

The end of October calls for indoor indulgences—and, in our world, there’s no better way to bask in the beauty of fall than to break out a really good movie. One of our favorite movies this month is Nicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me. Based on the novel by the same name, the film features some serious eye candy (i.e. James Marsden). Oh, and the plot’s pretty good too! Starring Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, The Best of Me is an epic love story about two high school sweethearts who reunite after more than 20 years. But be warned: If The Notebook tugged at your heartstrings, Sparks’ latest blockbuster will have you hanging on the edge of your seat.

This Spa Week, we’ve teamed up with Proflowers to give two lucky winners their very own Best of Me bouquet!* But that’s not all—each winner will also receive a $50 Spa Week Gift Card. Simply share our Facebook post here or retweet us here and you could win a trip to the spa on us this season! So what are you waiting for? Ready, set, share! May the best of you win.

Mani Monday: Six Halloween Nail Polish Hues That Will Make You Boo-tiful

This Halloween, treat yourself to one of these six spooky shades!

Halloween Mani

Halloween is just around the corner and we’re super excited to get into the spirit of the season. Being the beauty junkies that we are, however, we’re looking forward to complementing our costume with some haunting nail polish hues. Now, before you bemoan the fact that DIY designs only apply to the artistically-inclined, don’t worry, over-the-top nail art isn’t our strong suite either. While we admire the elaborate illustrations of the steady-handed, we just don’t have the skill set to make our fingernails that freaky. So what’s the alternative? Well, in our world, a set of wickedly dark polishes will do. Here are six spooky shades that have us spellbound this season.
