Water ripples Review, Ingredients: AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter™ Concentrate Exclusive Giveaway & AMAZON Discount #AHAVAatAMAZON - Sponsored

To think that a skincare brand was born out of sheer scientific discovery is unusual in the beauty world. The AHAVA Laboratories have shared their findings of skin-enriching minerals from the Dead Sea for years — and the discoveries just keep getting better. Since 1988, AHAVA has built its reputation on harnessing the power of Osmoter™ – the brand’s proprietary, balanced blend of natural Dead Sea Minerals found in all of its products — to increase skin’s vitality and enhance moisture.

Now, 26 years later, a new technology was created in Dead Sea Osmoter™ Concentrate to deliver 3Xs more Osmoter™ to recharge, rehydrate and illuminate skin by boosting cellular turnover activity. Enhanced with Aquaporin 3 to deliver more moisture and radiance to the skin’s cells, its primer-like texture contains high levels of saline water while retaining a gel structure.

The Dead Sea Osmoter™ Concentrate is a ground-breaking, skin optimizing concentrate that counteracts the damage from the aging process and environmental aggressors for women of all ages and skin types. An ideal addition to any skincare regimen, proteins found in the concentrate regulate cellular water flow that results in plumper, more hydrated and younger-looking skin! Within 14 days, Dead Sea Osmoter™ Concentrate boosts skin’s natural radiance, giving it a “lit from within” look. Skin has increased moisture capacity, clarity and softness — revealing a luminous complexion. After 1 month:

85% of users saw more youthful skin
91% of users reported a more luminous complexion
95% reported skin felt softer
 93% reported their skin felt smoother

AHAVA Eye And Body Serums Review, Ingredients: AHAVA Dead Sea Osmoter™ Concentrate Exclusive Giveaway & AMAZON Discount #AHAVAatAMAZON - Sponsored

Also part of the Dead Sea Osmoter™ family is the NEW! Eye Concentrate — a triple-threat eye serum that combats dark circles, recharges cellular energy around the eye area and helps to fight under-eye puffiness with cucumber and aloe vera. Its Pearl and Pigment Travel Technology illuminates skin upon application for a wide-awake appearance.

For a body as radiant as your face, the NEW! Dead Sea  Osmoter™ Body Concentrate acts as an intensive skin-correcting  serum to help improve skin’s  appearance for a more uniform look, while protecting it from environmental aggressors with fortified vitamin C for moderate exfoliation. Skin is left looking brighter and evenly toned, as brown algae reduces and prevents the formation of dark spots, ensuring skin will have a bright future.

Loreal GLosy Balms Review, Swatches: How To Get Glossy, Pigmented Lips With L’Oréal Colour Riche Glossy Balms!

It’s a little weird to think that every time September rolls around, the back-to-school jitters hit me hard. Maybe it’s the hustle and bustle of #NYFW, or perhaps that eerie feeling caused by the changing of the seasons. But whatever the case, I find the best way to wash away those anxious feels is through brand-spanking new makeup, of course.

L’Oréal Paris Intro’s The Makeup Genius App: First Of Its Kind Cosmetic Mirror Allows You To Play With Beauty Looks In Real Time

If you too find it extremely hard to part with the playfulness of summer beauty, no need to freak out. L’Oréal Paris has recently unveiled the NEW! Colour Riche Glossy Balm, which helps you transition from that summertime gloss to a more pigmented-rich color balm.

Left to Right: Petite Plum, Vintage Rose, Pink Me Up, Ginger Candy

Review, Swatches: How To Get Glossy, Pigmented Lips With L’Oréal Colour Riche Glossy Balms!

Some color balms give you that sophisticated matte finish, but when I prefer something more luminous, this L’Oréal Paris find is surely to become my next go-to color. To apply, simply work your way from the center of your lips then outward, giving your lips unbeatable shine. And with a variety of different shades, there’s one for every mood or personality.

Ginger Candy

Nude Review, Swatches: How To Get Glossy, Pigmented Lips With L’Oréal Colour Riche Glossy Balms!

For your basic peachy nude, let Ginger Candy be your everyday lippie for any daytime or evening occasion.

Pink Me Up

Pink Review, Swatches: How To Get Glossy, Pigmented Lips With L’Oréal Colour Riche Glossy Balms!

Feeling a bit playful? Swipe on some Pink Me Up onto your lips for that high-charged pink shade you crave.

Soft Balm Review, Swatches: How To Get Glossy, Pigmented Lips With L’Oréal Colour Riche Glossy Balms!

Darker doesn’t necessarily have to be too heavy when it comes to Vintage Rose, which gives you that soft plum shade — perfect for the office.

Petite Plum

Maybelline Lounge BeautyStat.com's Top 10 Beauty Secrets & Backstage Moments Revealed! NYFW Spring, Summer 2015 Trends: Cornrolls, Reverse Manicures, Freckles, Facial Masks

It was a whirlwind of hairspray, fashion, lipgloss and nails… but we managed to survive another Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week! Our fab beauty editors divided and conquered to bring you all the backstage access of some of our favorite designers, hairstylists and makeup artists. Whether it was seeing models wearing hydrating facial masks for supple skin or stopping by a new beauty bar, we rounded up our Top 10 Moments From NYFW SS’15!

1. We stopped by the Maybelline Lounge Penthouse at Milk Studios and hung out with Makeup Artist Melissa Silver. She showed us just how easy the NEW! Master Kajal Eyeliners are to use for fall. Beauty Editor Mandie Williams took a break in between shows to retouch her makeup and sip some Maybellinis.

2. Cornrolls and ponytails. Senior Editor Erin Sutera made her way backstage at the Edun S/S’15 show with James Pecis for Beauty.com using Phyto and T3 tools. He created a modern pony by prepping the hair with PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray from roots to ends and using the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i. PHYTO Professional Glossing Cream was combed through the hair with fingers to give texture and separation. As the hair was tied into a low ponytail, it was secured with a black band at the crown. The tail was then sprayed with PHYTO Professional Workable Holding Spray and tied into a Zulu knot. The finished look was neat, funky yet not too done. As an added touch, James added tiny cornrows at both temples to secure the headband.

3. Beauty bars. Who can say no to a good blow-out? Our Beauty Editor Courtney Leiva made a well-deserved detour to the Panasonic Beauty Bar to enjoy more than one of the available amenities such as wash-n-blows, dry styling bar, manicures and VIP gifting. Perks!

4. The ’60s are back! At the Erin Fetherston show located at the Salon in Lincoln Center, everything was positively luxurious and mod! Mandie Williams spotted the designer herself (left) with a platinum hair flip as pretty and polished as her collection. The look here was a little more sixties, with black and white eyeliner and bright white nails tipped with a gold stripe. Nail tape made getting a perfectly straight line simple.

Tadashi Nails 2015 BeautyStat.com's Top 10 Beauty Secrets & Backstage Moments Revealed! NYFW Spring, Summer 2015 Trends: Cornrolls, Reverse Manicures, Freckles, Facial Masks

5. Neutral nail art. Beige, taupe, off-white… a neutral nail is what we can expect for the springtime. But of course, we can all benefit from a little bling. Nail art will be taking a more subtle approach with smaller accents, like a thin strip of gold found across the nail. Katie Jane Hughes painted our pinky nail as she did for the models backstage at Tadashi Shoji, where nails had one coat of NEW! butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in High Tea (available 2015) to create a clean, nude base; butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in The Full Monty was applied with the Striping Brush (available in the butter LONDON Colour Hardwear Nail Art Tool Kit) to create a diagonal mesh-like pattern.

6. Embrace your freckles… or just draw them on! Mark Carasquillo for Beauty.com used Keyvn Aucoin for a look that evoked an English Girl sitting by the seaside. Skin was evened out using the Sensual Skin Enhancer where needed; The Creamy Glow Duo to give a sunkissed glow. Eyes were minimal, curling the lashes and applying a dark brown mascara. The key to this look was the penciled in freckles, placing them differently on each model.

7. The reverse manicure. Nails were equally as neutral as soft. Katie Jane Hughes of butter LONDON for Beauty.com said she wanted to give a reverse paint job with the nails. The nail techs first used a beautiful taupe in Yummy Mummy and THEN used the Nail Foundation over the polish to take it back a notch.

8. We were able to celebrate the launch of BetsyElisa Inc.‘s Beauty Bar with owners Betsy Reyes and Elisa Tallerico, who have worked at MTV for the last 14 years. They continue to run the MTV beauty department, styling the likes of stars on TRL, Gossip Girl, SNL and comedian Amy Schumer.

9. Use body oil for a glowing complexion? Get that glow with oil! Luminous skin is going to be HUGE for spring. Dewy cheeks were all the rage. butter LONDON‘s Katie Jane Hughes told us backstage at Rachel Zoe her favorite glowing concoction: a dollop of Jao Goe Oil mixed in with CHEEKY Cream Blush in Honey Pie and applied using the heels of the palms of her hands on the cheekbones.

10. Skincare backstage. Before the models were poked and prodded with liner and lipstick, makeup artists relied on some deeply hydrating skincare to help models get a healthy, makeup-free glow. At the Rag & Bone SS’15 show, Celebrity Makeup Artist Gucci Westman gave the models a radiance boost with Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid or Ceramidin Cream to moisturize and soothe irritated skin. At Opening CeremonyNEW! Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Mask soothed and moisturized the skin.

Eye Patch NYFW 2015 ss BeautyStat.com's Top 10 Beauty Secrets & Backstage Moments Revealed! NYFW Spring, Summer 2015 Trends: Cornrows, Reverse Manicures, Freckles, Facial Masks

Tired eyes are inevitable for a model. The Patchology Energizing Eye Kit came to the rescue at the Tadashi Shoji SS’15 show. Celebrity Aesthetician Eileen Harcourt and her skincare team applied Patchology Energizing Eye Patches under each models’ eyes upon their arrival backstage. The gel was first applied to each patch before being placed on the models’ skin, offering a wonderful cooling sensation upon application. Containing micro-current technology, the patches deliver today’s most effective hydrating ingredients to the skin in a way that regular creams and serums cannot.

Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil

Lancome eye paleteete 2014 Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil

“Perfectly structured brows frame intensely smoky eyes. Graphic minimalism meets the latest
shades.”

It’s all about the purples and greens! This fall, Lancôme came out with an effortlessly gorgeous
collection that took inspiration from the violet beauty of dark amethyst and beguiling mystery
of green malachite. Channeling the je ne sais quoi of the modern French woman, French
Idole is a natural, bold and utterly mysterious line. With innovative new formulas and updated
favorites, the collection has an apparent sophistication that was born to become the new classic.

Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil

NEW! 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette in Golden Sage: Smoky, bold eyes are my all-time favorite makeup look. This beautiful palette, which comes with instructions on how to apply the multifunctional colors from day to night, is a subtle spin on the classic. The green dazzles, while the brown shades keep the look neutral. I would recommend wetting your brush before you apply color for a deeper pigment, otherwise, I found applying the shadows dry made them blend together. You can also use the colors separately for any combination you choose; create countless looks from a single palette.

Lancome Brow Liners 2014 Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil
NEW! Les Sourcils Definis in 103 Auburn and 105 Brown: Our brows frame our face, and many women are in need of that perfect pencil for a defined brow. Les Sourcils is a super-slim and extra-precise brow liner. These pencils do not need sharpening and come with their own brow brush. Incredibly thin, they deliver the perfect line that is easily blendable with your natural brow.

Lancôme Grandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara – First-Of-Its-Kind Wand Provides Bigger, Brighter Eyes

Auburn and Brown can be used on a wide variety of hair colors and skintones, but, ideally, Auburn is good for medium to dark brunettes; Brown is great for very dark brown hair. They also maintain a staying power that will last you even after the shower. The water-proof formula allows for more than 6-hours of long-wear with no fear of smudging. It is the perfect liner for pool and beach days, as well as those humid summer scorchers. Remember to always go a shade lighter than your hair color, so that your brows won’t look too harsh.

Lancome Artliner fall 2014 Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil
Artliner 24H in Black Diamond: I cannot even express just how much I love this liner! A vinyl-finish, liquid eyeliner that lasts 24-hours and won’t smudge or budge. Not only is it incredibly precise and easy to apply, it doesn’t budge! That perfect, winged-out look is hard to maintain as the long hours pass during the day. The last thing you want is a smudged or faded lid. With its precision-tip foam applicator, this liner goes on without feathering, flaking or fading.

This liner is so long-lasting, I had to apply makeup remover a few times to the area in order to remove it. It’s perfect for deep-set eyes like mine, which tend to crease any eye makeup that I put on. The color is great, too! Some liners claim to be black, but are such a thin formula that a few coats must be applied to the area in order to avoid any transparency. This liner is so pigmented, you only need to swipe it on once!

Lancome Fall 2014 Lipstick Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil
L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Fleur Impressioniste: Infused with moisture-boosting Pro-XylaneTM, lips stay moist, soft and comfortable for up to 8-hours. A very pretty pink, this lip color goes on smoothly, delivering hydration and pigment. It is better suited for mature women, or women with tan or olive skintones, as this particular shade of pink did not balance out with my fair skin. In my opinion, this color would better suit a woman with a darker complexion. That being said, this peachy color is the epitome of sophistication. That perfect dark pink you would expect Audrey Hepburn to wear. The tube the lipstick comes in is magnetic, so storage is easy. Just pop the cap back on and it will stay put!

Lancome FAll 2014 Nails Review, Swatches: Lancôme French Idole Fall 2014 Collection: Green, Purple 5 Pan Eye Shadow Palette, Artliner 24H, L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor, Les Sourcils Definis Brow Pencil
NEW! Vernis in Love in Amethyste Brune: A more sophisticated take on classic purple, this nail color delivers wonderful pigment but in more of a muted matte hue. It isn’t in-your-face purple, it is something much more appropriate for the office. A hint of dark glamour. As always with Lancôme polishes, application is super-easy, as its wide brush delivers the perfect stroke.
