Beauty Radar: New Product Alert

Two new products have caught our BeautyGrl eyes!


Marie Ernst™: Luxurious, all-natural soap brand Marie Ernst™ has caught the attention of Real Housewives star, Gretchen Rossi, and we are deeming it the must-lather product of the season. Created, designed and patented by the Marie Ernst™ Team and produced by the same manufacturer that developed thousands of indulgent bar soap formulations (such as Erno Laszlo, Estée Lauder, Clinique, Philosophy, Burt’s Bee’s, Bliss and Origins), Marie Ernst™ is bringing its beauty endeavor to “real’ people with the recently launched Kickstarter campaign.

Native Deodorants: You won’t even think about stink when you use Native Deodorant. Unlike traditional deodorants, Native is made in the United States without the use of aluminum or parabens, both of which have been linked to Alzheimer’s and breast cancer. Instead, Native Deodorant is made from simple ingredients you can understand like beeswax, baking soda, coconut oil and shea butter. These ingredients make up the simple recipe that feels light and fresh under your arms, but provides you with protection against odor all day. Native Deodorant is a solid, unscented deodorant that you can apply easily, and since the deodorant doesn’t contain aluminum, it won’t stain your clothes.

Pamper Your Hair With Innersense™ Organic Beauty

As we celebrate Earth Day and pamper the environment, it is also a good time to take care of our hair and clean up our beauty routines.

“We are committed to working with local farmers near our California headquarters that use long-standing practices to produce ingredients in the most eco-sensitive ways,” said Greg Starkman. “After harvesting, we cold-press and steam-distill ingredients, which results in perfectly pure extracts.”

With 11 hair care products, the Innersense™ Organic Beauty includes shampoos and conditioners for normal and color-treated hair, Quiet Calm Curl Control to tame curly tresses, and products to create volume, hold and finishing. The most popular products are Color Awakening Hairbath and Color Radiance Daily Conditioner.


Spring Accessory Alert: Lagoon Jewels

Nothing screams springtime than a bouquet of accessories! We’ve stumbled upon the new “It” jewelry designer Joanna Flores and her line, Lagoon Jewels. Lagoon Jewels is a unique collection of rare, one-off charms and embellishments that have been collected by Flores from around the world. From lapis and coral with aventurine sourced from Nepal to Hindu deity amulets from India and rare Petro Tourmaline slices from Sri Lanka, the deep hues of the beads and pendants add vibrancy to the collection, as vivid and colorful as the fishes and corals of the ocean that her collections draw inspiration from.


Lagoon Jewels - Natural Ruby and Sapphire with Amethyst Jewel

Lagoon Jewels – Natural Ruby and Sapphire with Amethyst Jewel

A passionate jewelry collector, Flores spent years selling other designer’s pieces in the luxury jewelry market, but quickly discovered a lack of well-made, high-quality pieces that didn’t spend next month’s rent. Flores began Lagoon Jewels to fit the lifestyle of budget-conscious fashionistas who aren’t willing to sacrifice style. Using natural stones including aquamarine, turquoise, onyx and labradorite, Flores infused her distinct California-chic style into each of her handcrafted pieces, creating a line of jewelry that is perfect for adding sparkle and flair to your spring ensemble.

The Grammy Awards are just a few days away (February 8), and Sunday night’s red carpet will be something you won’t want to miss. We caught up with Hollywood’s favorite Celebrity Makeup Artist, Trendee King, to find out what looks she will be creating for the Grammys.

Benefits Hello Flawless

“I will be sending my clients down the velvety red carpet with lips and skin to match,” said King. “For skin, the look will be matte, yet bright. I will be using Benefits Hello Flawless to achieve this soft suede look.”  For a sheer, natural finish, sweep Hello Flawless on with a brush using light, quick strokes, and blend from the center of your face outward. For full coverage, apply evenly over entire complexion with the sponge. For spot cover-up, pat gently and blend over any areas where you want extra coverage.


Lime Crime’s Velvetines collection

“Creamy skin and beautiful matte lips will be a hit on the Grammy runway and my go-to lip product is Lime Crime’s Velvetines collection, in colors that are deep and rich including Wicked (a black cherry), Cashmere (a grayish-mauve), Salem (a velvety-smooth chocolate) and Red Velvet (a Hollywood red).” Lime Crime’s innovative formula goes on liquid and dries completely matte so you are camera-ready with touch-proof, transfer-proof lips.


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

For eyes, King says the Grammys will be all about matte lids with sweeping lashes. “I will be coating lashes generously with Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and layering Velour lashes one on top of the other, for a wide-awake, youthful gaze.”
