Bryant Park Inspired!

bondno9_bryantpark.jpgSo, you may not be able to physically get to New York's famed Bryant Park (the setting of the twice yearly Fashion Week), but you can smell like it with the newest addition from Bond No.9.

Bond No.9 has created this scent, Bryant Park, inspired by the events at the tents. All of Bonds scents are inspired by New York City neighborhoods, and I feel this was a great choice. And the bottle with it's painted mod theme is bright and beautiful, just like Bryant Park in full bloom.

It smells a bit spicy, but feminine at the same time.

Here are the notes:
Lily of the Valley
Pink Pepper

A Microcirculatory Effect - Can this be Good For You?

Have you seen Smashbox's newest blush called O-Glow? It is blush that is said to work with your own personal chemistry to have you naturally blushing all day.

o-glow.jpgHere is the description from
Experience instant chemistry as your complexion is transformed from so-so to oh-so-glowing! The first intuitive blush, this clear gel reacts with your personal skin chemistry to turn cheeks the exact color you blush, naturally in just seconds! O-GLOW works on every skin tone, from the lightest to the darkest, to give everyone a naturally gorgeous glow. When applied, your skin's moisture activates the energizing Goji Berry-C Complex™. It creates a microcirculatory effect, producing a rosy flush that lasts all day. This revolutionary silicone-based clear gel works on every skin tone and is microcirculating and skin energizing to keep cheeks naturally flushed for hours. O-GLOW's unique Goji Berry-C Complex™ formula is full of antioxidants like vitamin C, pomegranate seed oil and marine plankton for added healthy-skin benefits. The completely natural looking, preservative and fragrance-free formula glides on smoothly for a healthy, glowing blush that's you, only prettier.

I don't know about you, but I am concerned. Can this really be good for your blood or your skin? Is this Goji Berry-C Complex a safe ingredient? I know that when I blush, my cheeks feel very warm. I mean, isn't blushing a surge of blood to your cheeks, or other areas? I am afraid to try this.

Has anyone used O-GLow yet? If you have, I am anxious to know - how did it feel? Did you cheeks feel warm? Did it last longer than a conventional makeup product?
