The Hair Trend Knot to Be Missed


ECRU NEW YORK’s Creative Director, Lisa Lobosco, talks Knots. Her artistic collaboration with Lu Yang by Yang Lu and Nolcha S/S 18 was all about creating the essential element of balance.

Yanglu’s collection was about this beautiful, clean, structure accented by one of the hottest retro season trends, the headband (bows). Lobosco explains, “creating balance was essential, so we strategically crafted three knotted buns on the head, (one on top, two on the sides) using Dry Texture Spray from the Texture Collection, to bring balance once we twisted the band into a bow”.  This trend is the perfect accent to the deconstructed power suits, and structured lines in fashion.

ECRU New York, prestige beauty company, has a rich heritage in the world of beauty and fashion.  Born in the salon and created by professional hair and makeup artists, every edited collection is created to treat and perform offering endless beauty options.  ECRU New York is found in the most exclusive salons, spas, and retailers globally.

Top Eco-Chic Beauty Products For Earth Day and Everyday


Each year since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated on April 22. An early Happy Earth Day to you! No one at The Makeup Examiner is going to tell anyone how to live his or her life, but we are going to share a little bit of our founder’s story. Yvonne was raised in an eco-conscious household by an --across the board-- activist mother. She shared with us that she’d always taken for granted that other people lived the same way that she did. Entering her teenage years, she had zero interest in the things that her mother taught her and became very interested in big business. 

Fast forward to eight years ago when she left a position as a CEO and decided to become a freelance writer. Wanting to give a voice to the voiceless, Yvonne focused on women’s issues. The media outlet that gave her a steady gig had asked if she’d wanted a beauty column. As she tells it, “I thought, ‘Yeah, like a hole in the head,’ but I took the gig anyway and hit the ground running. Six years later, I have been privy to a unique view of the beauty industry and have worked with so many amazing and wonderful people. This journey has taught me more than I could have imaged to learn about sustainably, the environment and how to tell the difference between a true eco-friendly product and a brand that is just straight up greenwashing.” Sustainable, organic, and fair trade are the issues that we hold close to our hearts and in celebration of Earth Day, Team TME has chosen a few of our favorite eco-friendly brands! Oops, we almost forgot that each of the brands listed are also cruelty-free!


COSMETICS:

Chantecaille - Chantecaille Beauté launched its brand with the philosophy of making women feel beautiful and beautifully making a commitment to the environment through responsible practices and philanthropic endeavors. Chantecaille’s philosophies haven’t changed, and we’ve yet to try a Chantecaille product that we don’t love. Non-GMO Too!

Rouge Bunny Rouge (RBR) – Pretty much still in the Indie category, Rouge Bunny Rouge is quickly becoming a favorite by all. With enchanting (and minimal) recyclable packing, Rouge Bunny Rouge has us hopping for more!

jane iredale - The Makeup Examiner Team chose jane iredale, as the brand’s Hydration Sprays have earned ECOCERT’s Natural and Organic Cosmetics certification. In conjunction with earning the aforementioned award from ECOCERT, jane iredale products are made without harsh chemical dyes, talc, parabens, formaldehyde, heavy metals or synthetic preservatives.


NAILS:

Gabriel Cosmetics – Offering a plethora of colors, Gabriel Nail Polishes are both eco-friendly and “5-free.” Plus, the brand is completely committed to sustainable practices.




HAIRCARE:

Davines - Davines is a cruelty free, organic and sustainable brand that belongs to 1% For the Planet! There isn’t much more to elaborate upon other then to say that each product we’ve tried from this Italian brand is exceptional.

Pureology – Understanding the importance of water conservation, Pureology has taken conservation measures that include designing shampoo and conditioner packaging that use 39 percent less water during the manufacturing process, utilizes 100 percent recyclable packaging made of 50 percent post-consumer recycled materials, uses 100 percent vegan ingredients, and ultimately saves nearly 60,000 gallons of water each year through its overall conservation efforts.

ECRU New York – ECRU is dedicated to making products that are eco-friendly. ECRU New York’s products are not tested on animals and do not harm the environment. Of course, all of the brand’s packaging is recyclable.


SKINCARE:

Eco-Amour Advanced Skin Fitness – This brand has been a TME favorite for a long time. All Eco-Amour products are organic, vegan, cruelty-free and packaged in recyclable containers.

Merlot Skin Care - Featured on The TODAY show with Kathie Lee and Hoda, is a family-owned and operated brand with its products made in the USA. That aside, the entire Merlot Skin Care line is cruelty-free and incorporates the healing benefits of natural red grape seed antioxidants, which are gentle and effective.

NUDE Skincare – The brand’s products are made without parabens, phthalates, sulphates and other harmful chemicals, and they also avoid non-biodegradable mineral oils and silicones.



BODY CARE:

L’Occitane - The beautiful company with Parisian-inspired stores across the nation offers many eco-friendly products. L’Occitane offers refill pouches for most of its best-selling product formulas like soaps, face wash, shampoo, etc., which is the perfect way to refill your bottle or jar without having to purchase another container.

Daily Concepts – The brand’s products are environmentally-friendly and made from natural components such as soy based foam, charcoal and turmeric. Daily Concepts is a vegan brand and is committed to the global community through it’s participation in Lava Mae, a non-profit organization determined to “deliver dignity one shower at a time” to the world’s homeless.



PERFUME

Lotus Wei - The Makeup Examiner chose to highlight this particular company because of its all-around philosophies of integrating the plant, planet and beauty. Lotus Wei offers Flower Elixirs, Balancing Serums, Energy Mists, and Transformative Perfumes. Each of which are available in varying moods -- Joy Juice, Infinite Love, Pure Energy, Inspired Action, Quiet Mind and Inner Peace -- aimed to help us focus upon a specific issue in our lives by shifting our mood and physiology.

Fall Back Into Beauty Fall 2015 Beauty Must Haves




Summer 2015 was definitely one for the history books. But with Fall 2015 officially beginning today, September 23, it’s time to say goodbye to the beach and hello to all of the stunning fall hues! Did you notice that all things “Pumpkin Spice” have remerged? Yum! So kicking into high-gear, again, Team TME went on an expedition to find the go-to, must-have beauty products that will get you ready for the cooler weather ahead … and do so in style.



Hair Care: Rejuvenating our locks after fun in the sun, and managing our hair, can be quite the endeavor as the weather cools down. PHYTO Phytokératine Repairing Shampoo ($22) and PHYTO Phytokératine Extrême Exceptional Mask ($59) are full of amazingly restorative and nourishing fabulousness for your locks, but do not contain Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates. To keep those locks locked, we’re loving ECRU NY Silk Texturizing Balm ($28), Volumizing Silk Mist ($24) and Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX ($22.95) PHYTO and ECRU NY are cruelty-free!



Skin Care: Fess up … you still don’t have a solid skincare regimen! Okay, we’re not pointing any fingers – who are we to judge? We just want you to know that your skin will be with you for your entire life and eventually even the best of concealers will not be able to hid years of neglect. For Fall 2015, Team TME is very into Davines, Tata Harper Skin Care and Peter Lamas.

For an all over body rejuvenation, we pick Davines OI Body Wash ($25) and Tata Harper Smooth Body Scrub ($58). Out of the shower, our pick is Tata Harper Fortifying Body Lotion ($68).

Of course you can’t ignore your face! Begin and end your day with Peter Lamas Detoxifying Citrus C Cleanser ($24). Peter Lamas Nourishing Buriti Oil Moisturizer ($36) and once-per-week Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub ($28). Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Serum ($185), Tata Harper Be Fierce Lip Care ($24) and Tata Harper Rejuvenating Hand Cream ($48) are absolute must-haves for fall and WINTER 2015!

Now that you have your hair, body, and face all prepped you need the hot products for Fall 2015! Oh, and these will take you through Winter 2015 too!

Cosmetics: Out with old, in with the new and we’ve found a few new products that you should check out this season. Speaking of out with the old, now is a perfect time to do Fall cleaning and discard that old makeup!



We absolutely fell in love with jane iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener ($48) a while ago and Team TME isn’t changing up for the season. Smooth Affair has anti-aging properties that even skin tone, minimize the appearance of pores and increase luminosity. Plus, it’s the best primer that we’ve found thus far.

Moving on to foundation, we’re really liking CoverGirl Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation ($11.30 – available in 5 shades) and worn by the stunning Sofia Vergara at Sunday night’s Emmys!

Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint ($35 – available in six shades) does double-duty when you’re trying to get out the door and this new product is 100% natural & nontoxic Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint delivers a more modern beauty experience, by combining lush natural pigments with the latest in anti-aging skincare technology.



NARS Pro Palettes are the first offering in a line of products designed with the professional makeup artist community in mind, but that doesn’t have to stop you from grabbing one! With two size options of the NARSPro Palettes (Large Palette, $18 and Small Palette, $14) and over 64 refill shades ($18 - $27 each), the opportunity to mix and match different shades of eyeshadows, blushes, bronzer, and pressed powders is endless.

More for the eyes … Mirabella Beauty just launched its Jewel Thief Collection and you’ll want to grab their Eye Palettes ($48 each) in Lavender Larceny and Diamond Deceit, as well as a Mirabella Velvet Lip Pencil in Wanted ($25).

Beauty ADDICTS offers up a few Fall Musts Haves starting with Effortless Eyes Eyeliner ($17.50 - Five custom shades) that are made from vegetable waxes, which provide a long-lasting wear.  Also From Beauty ADDICTS is Show Off Mascara ($22). This mascara rocks! With its unique formula you get volume, length and curl with Argan Oil to condition and protect. The curved brush hugs the natural eye shape to coat every lash while fanning and feathering. No clumps, no flakes, no smudges! Comes off effortlessly with a gentle cleanser.



As for lips, red is out and brown is in. Yeah, we never thought that we’d write that. However, it’s true. Brown has been the overlooked color and it is smokin’ hot for Fall and Winter! TME shared this new trend in “Celebrity Beauty Alert For Fall 2015,” which you can work with Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Moisturizing Matte Lipstick in Chocolate ($25), Almay’s Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick in Nude-Medium ($6.99), or Revlon’s Ultra HD Lipstick in HD Snapdragon ($8.99).



You will, of course, need a few tools for which to apply your makeup. There probably aren’t too many makeup brushes that we haven’t seen and tried. So, you’ll have to trust us when we tell you that you’ll want to invest in Artis brushes. Artis brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fibre made for applying cosmetic and makeup products that is 100% cruelty-free. The brushes are packaged in a beautiful velvet gift box with satin lining, and close using a flap with magnetic closure. The inner tray is removable so the box can be repurposed. The Artis Fluenta Collection can be purchased individually or in sets of 3 ($105), 5 ($190) or 9 ($400).

With invites sent and received, bridal season has arrived! And, of course you’ll want to look stunning whether it’s your big day or your joining in on the festivities. On April 18, From the Empire Hotel Rooftop in New York, Malan Breton showed his Spring 2016 Bridal Collection during Bridal Fashion Week with models’ hair coiffed by ECRU NY and we have the “how-to” for both the guys and gals! The inspiration - Aubrey Hepburn for the ladies and James Bond for the gents! 

Aubrey Hepburn Inspired Ponytail

Products Used: Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX, Volumizing Silk Mist, Sunlight Styling Spray, Silk Nectar Serum

How-To:
  • Step One: Section a 2-inch fringe at the front and part that out of the way to incorporate later.

  • Step Three: Now take the front from step 1 and sweep it over to one side and connect it to the ponytail securing it with another hair tie. The sweep of the fringe should be kept high to give a short fringe look exposing the eyebrows. Use Sunlight Styling Spray to help control the direction of the sweep. 
  • Step Four: Curl the ponytail; spray Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX onto small enough sections that fit into a 1-inch diameter curling iron. 
  • Step Five: Take a small piece from the ponytail (1cm diameter). Saturate that piece using Sunlight Holding Spray and wrap that piece around the hair tie, covering the hair tie. Take a curling iron and rest the barrel of the iron on the wrapped piece, going all the way around to help meld the wrapped hair to the ponytail. 
  • Step Six: Pump 1-2 drops of Silk Nectar Serum into your hands and lightly break apart the curls in the ponytail. Brush curls into a soft wave.
  • Step Seven:  For a good hold, spray the look with Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX.

ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream Review




ECRU New York introduced a line of hair care products, late in 2013, infused with Acacia Protein Collagen and Silk Proteins, one product being ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream. BB Cream for hair? Being ever the skeptic, I simply rolled my eyes at yet another catch-phrase product. After all, what was this “Acacia Collagen” and what was so awe-inspiring about using it on my hair?

Putting my investigator’s cap, I read up on Acacia Collagen. I found out that Acacia Collagen is an extract from the Acacia Seyal tree, which is native to Africa. Apparently this botanical ingredient is used in high-grade anti-aging skincare products due to its moisture retentive properties.

ECRU is utilizing this extract, versus animal proteins, in the brand’s patented Acacia Protein Collagen Hair Care line as to offer the same moisture retention and damage prevention as high-end skincare products. As I’ve previously written, ECRU New York is an eco-friendly brand, which does not test on animals and is committed to sustainability. So, catch phrase aside I tested out ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream.

What did ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream ($30) do for my hair? Well, first off this is a multi-purpose product (LOVE) that serves as a leave-in conditioner, heat protectent and styling product! A dime-sized amount of product was plenty for my long hair (More LOVE).

Acacia Protein BB Cream didn’t weigh my hair down, allowed for quick styling when taking my naturally curly hair to straight, and left my hair in amazing condition. For those that have damaged hair, Acacia Protein BB Cream is must-have styling product and for those that don’t it’s a great preventative.



ECRU New York Acacia Protein Collection includes:
Acacia Protein Shampoo ($25)
Acacia Protein Conditioner ($25)
Acacia BB Cream ($30)
Acacia Protein Masque ($25)
Acacia Protein Oil ($30)

ECRU New York Acacia Protein BB Cream and the entire Acacia Protein Collection can be found online at ECRU and select retail locations globally!

ECRU Travel Hair Dryer | Review



When a company or brand commits to responsible practices, this is the first thing that The Makeup Examiner likes to highlight. ECRU NewYork’s products are eco-friendly, they are not tested on animals and all of its packaging is recyclable. Of course, in this review we’re covering ECRU’s Travel Hair Dryer for which one is unlikely to throw in the recycle bin. That aside, the ECRU Travel Hair Dryer is packaged in recyclable cardboard and includes a bonus of full-sized Silk Nectar Serum that you can toss in the recycling bin after you’ve used every last drop.

So, what sets the ECRU Travel Hair Dryer apart from other travel dryers? Admittedly I’m a reformed over-packer. Yep, I was once known to travel with … uh … a few pieces of luggage, but impromptu business trips or weekend getaways don’t necessarily allow for a lot of time to pack. The ECRU Travel Hair Dryer is a compact, hitting the objective of a packable dryer for travel, yet powerful so that you don’t have to comprise performance. The dryer utilizes patented Japanese Ion Technology for fast, frizz-free drying. And if the Farmer’s Almanac is correct, we’re in for a hair-hating-humid summer.



The ECRU Travel Hair Dryer ($108) is a rather interesting technologically advanced hair dryer that dries hair from the inside out, sealing in moisture for a smooth and shiny style. You’ll probably find that you’ll use the Ecru at home because it’s that good of a dryer. My belief is that there are absolutely items that you can “skimp” on … stylers are not one of them, most especially if you intend to look good while traveling!

ECRU Travel Hair Dryer Specs:

  • Patented Japanese Ion Technology - Dries hair from the inside out to infuse it with moisture, restoring luster and reducing frizz and flyaways
  • Far Infrared Technology - Dries hair faster
  • Special Ion Infused Nozzle - Releases heat vacuum to prevent damage to hair
  • Dual Voltage - Adjust drying power to meet European and American requirements
  • Free full-size Silk Nectar Serum ($32.50) - For weightless silky, smooth style

TME found the ECRU Travel Hair Dryer to offer everything that one needs in a travel styler and the high quality places this item on The Makeup Examiner’s Seasonal Beauty Must-Haves list. The ECRU Travel Hair Dryer and ECRU New York products can be purchased online at ECRU and select retail locations globally!
