Just In Time for the Holiday Season: Natural Glamour

For consumers who desire glamour and luxury without the chemicals, seek no further than Wisely Made, Inc’s all natural hair and skin care products. They are making their long awaited debut to the public just in time for the holiday season.

Many pricey and luxurious beauty products on the market today are saturated with chemicals, artificial colors and fragrances, preservatives, sulfates and more. Some of the biggest beauty makers are unable to even publicize their products are cruelty-free and stand behind what they are marketing.

“That’s exactly why I launched Wisely Made,” said Fabiola Lapeine, President of the luxurious Wisely Made line of all natural skin care and natural hair care products. “I love to look and feel beautiful, but many available commercialized hair and skin care products, unfortunately, do more harm than good, due to their harsh and extreme ingredients.”

Even the so-called “natural hair products” and “all natural skin care products” aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. “Having a featured ingredient like green tea, Shea butter or soy doesn’t necessarily make a product all-natural,” said Lapeine, a Registered Nurse. “Plus, it’s more than just having one specific ingredient in your product. It’s about having the right amount and combinations of other ingredient to actually have a beauty or health-enhancing effect,” she concluded.

The Wisely Made All Natural Approach to Luxurious Beauty
Re-launching with a new and improved line of all natural beauty products this November, Wisely Made bottles up the best from nature and leaves out the synthetic, chemical byproducts so prevalent in everyday beauty products. The company’s natural hair products cater to the needs of hair so it can heal, grow healthy and be strong. What’s more, Wisely Made hair care products can be used on any hair type and work exceptionally well with very tight curls and/or ethnic hair. Wisely Made’s all natural skin care products can be used on all types of skin and due to its lack of chemicals, only goodness and nutrients will be absorbed instead of toxins.

“Due to the intense research as well as quality of our ingredients, the benefits of Wisely Made products are never-ending and constantly nourishing. We are committed to offering quality, safe and real quality natural products and we stand behind our products 100%,” Lapeine said.

Halloween Beauty Hints From Nutrimetics

According to research from the Nutrimetics Beauty Lab Report*, two thirds (64%) of Australian females admit they only change their look every couple of years or less!** This month marks the start of summer, Halloween and the approaching party season to inspire a new look, whatever your style. So, even if Halloween isn’t your thing, vamp up your make-up with this how to guide for a more sexy, stand out you.


Step 1: Using a light shade of eye shadow, such as Ivory from the new limited addition nc Illusion Colour Palette, highlight under the brow, and sweep across the lid.

Step 2: With an angled brush (nc Eyeshadow Angled Brush) sweep a warmer colour across the eye’s crease, working from the inside of the eye, out to the edge. Use the shape of your eyebrow to guide where the shadow line finishes. Try nc Illusion Colour Palette in Amber for a warm and shimmering shade of auburn.

Step 3: Define the lash line using nc Liquid Eye Definer in Black flicking the brush outwards at the outer corner of the eye. For a dramatic look, thicken the line and extend the length as required.

For more subtle eye make up that still brings out the eyes, sweep the Ivory shade of nc Illusion Colour Palette across the lid, using a conservative amount of colour. Skip step two and for step three create a more subtle line with a smaller flick on the outer corner of the eye. If needed, use make-up remover on a cotton bud to neaten up the edges of your flick. Try nc Instant Eyes Bi-Phase Make-Up Remover.


Step 1: First, use an exfoliating treatment to create the perfect base for your lipstick. Use Nutrimetics Ultra Care+ Lip Apeel, starting with the exfoliator followed by smoothing the lips with the nourishing balm. This will give lips a soft, even finish when lipstick is applied and will help the colour to hold for longer.

Step 2: Creating the perfect line is key to wearing bold lip colour. Use a lip liner such asnc Perfecting Lip Pencil in Cranberry. Use the pencil to
outline your natural lip shape. Make sure the tip is sharp for a well-defined line.

Step 3: Using the nc Lip Brush, apply colour evenly across the lips, working from the outside in. Try nc Youth Renewal Lipstick in Shebang for a burst of red, or for a warm red/brown try new nc Youth Renewal Lipstick in Mocha, which also contains an inner core to hyrdtrate, plump the lips, reduce fine lines and protect against future ageing.

Colour blocked lips is set to stay in style this summer. For a softer look, try step one and two, omitting step three. Try nc Youth Renewal Lipstick in Whimsy for a flush of colour. For extra plump to the lips, work a lighter colour into the centre of the lips; this helps to make the lips look bigger and fuller.

Estée Lauder offers free SMS alert 2 days before Gift Time

Estée Lauder has announced the introduction of a new free Gift Time SMS Text Reminder service which allows customers to sign up to receive text messages to alert them that Gift Time (Estée Lauder’s Gift with Purchase offer) is starting at their chosen store.

Available exclusively online, customers can register to receive a text alert via their mobile phone two days before Gift Time starts at their chosen store. Stores presently included in the text message alert service include Boots, Debenhams, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, House of Fraser, John Lewis, and Selfridges. This may be rolled out to further Estée Lauder stores in the near future, including the many Independent pharmacy stockists.

Estée Lauder was the first cosmetics brand to offer this text message service – perfect for those customers who have become devoted Gift Time followers. The text messages are completely free to sign up to and receive, and are proving an invaluable tool to those who love to be the first to know about special offers.

The SMS message service ensures loyal customers do not miss out on their exclusive gifts, while providing them with the opportunity to make their skin care, fragrance or makeup purchase at their favourite store. The message includes the dates that Gift Time is available to and from, as well as details of the qualifier (if it’s with any two Estée Lauder purchases, or any two Estée Lauder purchases, one to be skincare).

Gift Time was the first ever Gift with Purchase offered by the cosmetics world, in 1953. It was first started by Mrs Estée Lauder herself, when she offered her customers a face powder free of charge, with any Estée Lauder purchase. Estée believed that the best way to convert a woman into a customer was to place the product in her hand and let her try it for herself. One of Mrs. Lauder’s favourite quotes was “Tell-A-Phone, Tell-A-Graph, Tell-A-Woman”, based on her belief that once a woman tried a product, she would like it and share it with her friends.

This belief proved to be true, and today almost every beauty house in the world offers the Gift with Purchase concept.

Today, Estée Lauder has a different Gift Time offering for each of their store groups throughout the year. A typical gift will include a mixture of the latest, and best loved deluxe trial sized products, along with a handbag and cosmetics pouch. In each Gift there is an average of 6 deluxe trial sized products including a range of skincare, makeup and fragrance.

The service is perfect for women with busy, on-the-go lifestyles, allowing them to discover great new makeup colours, the opportunity to try the latest skincare innovations and enjoy Estée Lauder fragrance…and more, free with the purchase of 2 or more Estée Lauder products, one to be skincare.

About Estée Lauder
In 1946, Estée Lauder started business with one face crème, and the desire to bring out the beauty in every woman. By the time the revolutionary fragrance Youth-Dew was introduced in 1953, the Estée Lauder Company had already won a reputation for innovation, research and quality.

Now Estée Lauder‘s skincare, makeup and fragrance collections exemplify the best that technology, science and arts can achieve. The Estée Lauder name on a product is recognised in over 100 countries for quality and has gained a worldwide reputation for elegant, and luxurious products that uphold the finest standards of excellence through extensive research and stringent product testing.

The Estée Lauder Company’s’ annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign involves all of the 18 brands that make up The Estée Lauder Company. They collectively represent The Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s first and largest corporate supporter. Estée’s daughter-in-law was the creator of BCRF’s signature pink ribbon. Over $10 million has been raised for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation since 1993. Another $1 million was raised from their retail partners since July 2002.
