Rihanna has a lot of reasons to glow these days. The 25-year-old singer just launched her Rihanna for River Island clothing line and is days away from kicking off her Diamonds World Tour. But the real reason for her glow has a lot to do with her makeup artist, Mylah Morales. According to Mylah, she uses  Per-fekt Beauty products on Rihanna because of their multi-tasking abilities, crediting Per-fekt for “creating a healthy and youthful look,” something the star seems to have down pat. Mylah uses the one shade fits all Per-fekt Beauty Body Perfection Gel all over RiRi’s body to create an even skin tone that glows.

To get your own Rihanna glow on, the Allure Best of Beauty 2012 winning Body  Perfection Gel is available  in the Per-fekt Beauty Glow Kit. The Glow Kit retails at $100 and includes the body perfection gel, lip perfection gel and cheek perfection gel. It’s available at the exclusive price of $45 until March 21, 2013 at by entering  promo code GLOWKIT .

Sephora-Sale-Image.jpgSomething miraculous happened yesterday. We received an email from Sephora that had us jumping up and down, doing cartwheels (okay, not in actuality, but in our minds) and generally feeling beyond merry. What was this email, you ask? Only the notice of a sale so huge, we dropped EVERYTHING to immediately check it out. 215 products are currently on sale only on Sephora’s website, and they’re going for as low as ONE DOLLAR. Yes, you read that right! Below, our must-haves.

Sephora by OPI Mash Up Nail Colour, $3
One of the colors from last year’s Glee collection—a gorgeous opalescent grey.

Sephora by OPI Betsey Johnson Nail Colour in It’s My Pink!, $5
Not only is this the prettiest shade of year-round hot pink, it’s scented with Betsey’s signature Too, Too fragrance! Too cool.

Violent Lips Temporary Lip Tattoo in Pink Glitterati, $7
Okay, we know what you’re thinking. A lip tattoo? Really? But trust us, this one is super fun. It comes in an oversized lip shape that you can custom cut to fit your pout, and it adds a ton of sparkle to your everyday look!

The Body Shop Mango Shower Gel, $5
Only $5 for our very favorite sweet-smelling scent from The Body Shop? That settles it, we’re buying out Sephora’s entire inventory.

Nails Inc. Wave Magnetic Polish in Whitehall Teal, $7
We really couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw this nail polish on sale. We were immediate fans of Nails Inc.’s magnetic polish in every color—it’s unique, it’s fun, it’s the easiest way to do nail art. Ever.

Philosophy The Gingerbread Man Scented Hot Salt Body Scrub, $15
Now, wait just a second. The cult favorite body scrub—which, yes, smells exactly like gingerbread—for only $15? Now this sale is just getting ridiculous. Ridiculously amazing, that is.

Dior Diorshow Mascara in Mitzah, $14.50
A cult favorite. Our favorite mascara ever (it thickens, it lengthens, it curls, it makes your lashes look spectacular.) And it’s in the most gorgeous shade of deep honey brown.

Kate-Sommerville-Discovery-Kit.jpgReady to start your gift giving brainstorming sessions but don’t know where to start? For the beauty junkie, a sample kit is always the best way to go, and one of our new favorites is Kate Somerville’s Discovery Kit.

Get your gift recipient (or yourself!) one step closer to radiant skin with this sampling of Kate’s best sellers. A clear plastic zipper bag (great for traveling, btw) comes stocked with the Gentle Daily Wash, Quench Hydrating Face Serum, Total Vitamin Antioxidant Serum, Nourish Daily Moisturizer, ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, and two other sample creams.

We loved the foaming gel face wash because it removed all our makeup, but didn’t leave our skin feeling stripped. The 60 mL size is still going strong after daily use for three weeks, as you only need a small amount to get a good lather. The 15 mL jar of the ExfoliKate is marvelous for sloughing away dead skin cells (thank you, dry winter air). It’s an enzyme exfoliator with a slight roughness to it, that tingles just a bit, but leaves your skin ultra smooth. Our favorite gem of the bunch would definitely have to be the Nourish Daily Moisturizer. It’s ultra light-weight, super fast absorbing, and perfect during the pm for our oily skin.

Normally, this kit runs for $90, but from now until November 30, Kate Somerville is offering 30 percent off with coupon code KSFF2010Grab this goodie bag for yourself or a lucky friend/relative for just $60!




When we think of face primer ingredients, silicone is typically the one that comes to mind first. Such is not the case with Korres Vitamin E Face Primer. This silicone-free primer is 99% natural and acts more like a moisturizer rather than the typical pre-foundation product. We love it’s fresh, citrus scent and the way it makes our skin so soft and smooth. It also fills in fine lines, all while keeping makeup in place all day. $28,

origins recycling program seal.jpgDid you know that most community recyclers only take items made from materials that are easily recognized- such as soda and water bottles— and cosmetic and toiletry bottles, tubes, caps and jars are among those items not easily recognized, and therefore not often recycled? It’s true, and we think that’s so unfortunate. Thankfully, Origins has created a solution.

Origins has launched its “Return to Origins” Recycling Program, a first-of-its-kind nationwide cosmetics recycling program that accepts all cosmetic empties regardless of brand at over 450 Origins retail stores and Origins department store counters.

Tomorrow, April 2, as a celebratory occassion, the first 250 people to drop off beauty empties at the GM Plaza in New York City, and among the first 100 people to drop off beauty empties at the Origins Century City store in Los Angeles, will receive a FREE deluxe size A Perfect World Intensely hydrating body cream with White Tea. Origins will also be providing FREE A Perfect World hand and arm massages to all attendees.

Additional events will occur at the following locations:

Denver, CO - Origins Cherry Creek North 2800 E 2nd Ave 8am to 6pm

Boston, MA - Origins Faneuil Hall 1 Faneuil Hall Market Place 10am-9pm

Cambridge, MA - Origins Harvard Square 8 Brattle Street 10am-9pm

Austin, TX - Origins at Central Park 4001 N. Lamar Blvd. Suite 570 10am-8pm

San Francisco, CA - San Francisco Centre 865 Market Street 9:30am-8pm


So from now on, don’t throw those empty beauty containers away. Take them to your local Origins, and you’ll not only help the environment, but you’ll be even more beautiful for it.
