Get the Inside Scoop on Our Limited Edition CEW Beauty Awards Boxes

image

To find out which products we need to add to our shopping lists ASAP, we look to the Cosmetic Executive Women’s annual selections. Each year, 5,500 beauty industry professionals (the ones who really know products) vote on the CEW Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards. In 2013, they narrowed more than 650 entrants down to 185 finalists in over 30 different product categories, and we’re featuring some of the choicest finalists and winners in our two just-released, limited edition Birchbox for CEW boxes.

Watch the video below to find out some of the products you’ll find in the Prestige Headliners box, plus our unique take on why this elite group of experts singled them out as the best of the best.

See all our CEW beauty picks and snag both boxes for a special discounted price of $26.

They’re Here! Announcing Our Limited Edition CEW Beauty Awards Boxes

image

A few months ago, we told you that we had an exciting new partnership in the works with Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW). Each year, the organization of 5,500 industry insiders holds their Beauty Insiders’ Choice Awards (basically the Oscars of the beauty world) where they select the latest and greatest from all of the year’s newly launched products—it’s one of the most coveted awards in the beauty world.

Well, we’re happy to say that we’re ready to reveal the details of our collab! Today, we’re launching two limited edition boxes with CEW featuring winners and finalists from their Insider’s Choice awards. If you prefer more high-end products, you can opt for the CEW Prestige box, which includes products from Julep, IT cosmetics, Living Proof, La Fresh, and Elizabeth Arden.

For anyone looking to find out about the best drugstore brands, you’ll want to try the CEW Mass box. There you’ll be able to test the hottest releases from Revlon, Simple, Burt’s Bees, L’Oreal, Nivea, and Olay. For those of you who are major beauty aficionados, we suggest snagging both for a special price of $26, but regardless of which one you choose, each is chock full of the best new beauty goodies around!

Dying to find out even more about this partnership? Here’s everything you should know about CEW, the products that we love, and more.

Holiday Party-Worthy Polishes: Guest Blogger

It can be a bit of a black hole trying to sort through all the anti-aging beauty products on the market. That’s why we look to the all-knowing Jonell Copeland, the editor of the Ageist Beauty, a blog that focuses on dishing out beauty advice to ladies aged 35-50. This week, she’s giving us all the deets on her holiday season musts!

I’m not exaggerating when I say I have enough nail polishes to paint a Fiat 500. There are only certain polishes that are special enough for New Year’s Eve and other special celebrations. These are the ones that instantly put me in a party frame of mind:

Our Top 10 New York Fashion Week Manicures

Whew. We’re still catching our breath after fashion week wrapped up here in New York last Thursday.

Graphic, bold, and utterly innovative, the designs we saw backstage for spring prove that this trend isn’t going anywhere. Here’s a look at ten standout manis that we can’t wait to replicate.
