Blink Bar Follow-Up

After an afternoon of getting your brows and lashes done at the Blink Brow Bar at Henri Bendel, you’ll definitely want to leave with a few products that will help you to maintain the beautiful work done by the experts. In a follow-up to our post about the fabulous Blink Brow Bar, we thought we’d post a few amazing products offered by Blink that will help you to maintain and grow those beautiful brows and lashes you’ve worked so hard to get!
Blink’s Luscious Lash Oil
This product is designed with natural ingredients to leave your lashes with a full, glossy look. The castor oil and jojoba oil help to nourish, moisturize and strengthen your lovely lashes, while extracts of bamboo and rosemary are infused to promote shine and stimulate growth. Blink’s Luscious Lash Oil is a great way to maintain the lashes you love.
Blink’s Nourishing Brow Oil
This revolutionary brow oil is designed to nourish and stimulate the growth of your brows. It is best applied at night so the oil can do its work for hours without being disrupted. You’ll fall in love with the lavender and sandalwood smell that will help you to calm and relax for a good night’s sleep.
Blink’s Eyebrow Grooming Gel
This product is a must-have if you just got your brows threaded at one of Blink’s Brow Bars. You’ll notice that they use it after every treatment. It is used as a grooming tool because it allows the hair to be kept in place, while also nourishing the brows for long-lasting growth. This product is available as a clear gel, or in two different shades of brown gel to match your very own brows.

Velvet’s Fall Photo Shoot

We love the fall season here at Velvet Eyewear! We love the weather, we love the holidays and we love that we can finally take our boots and coats back out of the closet. We hit New York City earlier this month for a beautiful fall photo shoot underneath the shady trees in Central Park. It was the perfect autumn day in New York City with just the right amount of sun mixed with crisp, cool temperatures. Check out some of our favorite shots here…

Velvet Loves Rebecca Minkoff Handbags

We love Rebecca Minkoff’s new fall collection of handbags! This season, the designer’s collection features beautiful colors, including red, copper, bronze, chocolate, eggplant and raspberry. All of Rebecca Minkoff’s handbags, satchels and clutches are made with genuine leather that feels super soft. Check out a few of our favorites here…

Couture Hats by Satya Twena

Satya Twena says that almost anyone can pull off wearing one of her hats. But the trick is making sure that you wear the hat with a simple, clean look. She says that you should avoid wearing such a powerful headpiece with a loud dress, crazy handbag or eye-popping shoes. Let the hat be the statement piece and the rest will come together quite beautifully.                                              When looking at Satya Twena hats, it’s no wonder that architecture, art and vintage have inspired these hats to become the works of art that they are. These bold hats are designed specifically for confident and smart women (like you!).

Each hat is made by hand right in New York City. The designer creates one-of-a-kind pieces and she says that the minute they hit the shelves, they sell like hot cakes. If you’re interested in purchasing a fabulous, one-of-a-kind hat from Satya Twena you can find her pieces at Henri Bendel or on the designer’s website,

Product Rave: Kevyn Aucoin’s “The Volume Mascara”

Velvet made a list of products that we discovered while spending a week at our pop-up shop at Henri Bendel in New York City earlier this month. Among those things that we discovered was an amazing mascara made by Kevyn Aucoin – called The Volume Mascara. We love this mascara because it has the ability to wrap your lashes individually with a mascara formula that packs in the volume without creating those annoying clumps. This mascara builds gorgeous, long and thick lashes! And what woman doesn’t want that? This formula, combined with a tube applicator, actually separates each lash hair individually and then wraps each lash hair evenly with the thickening mascara. No flakes! No Clumps! No hassle! That’s why we’re in love with it!
Kevyn Aucoin’s The Volume Mascara is available at Henri Bendel in New York City, Barneys New York, and for those of you who are out of state and want to order online, the mascara is available at Happy shopping!

Throw Yourself an Arm Party

This just in — stacking bracelets is a hot way to accessorize your outfits this fall! Many models and fashion bloggers have been spotted donning this trend by decorating their arms with their favorite bangles, beads and chains. Some like to throw an arm party on one arm, but we love it best when both arms are decorated to perfection.
So, go ahead and throw a party on your arms by mixing and matching your favorite bracelets to create an eye-popping fall accessory statement. Look for bangles, beaded elastic bracelets, chains and vintage-style clasp bracelets this season. And if you want to get really crazy; throw a watch in there to get the party started!Now, for a challenge:

Product Rave: Body Perfection Gel by Per-fekt Beauty

We love to take time out to rave about products that we think work well and will enhance the beauty of our readers. Last week, when we were at our pop-up shop at Henri Bendel in New York City, we discovered an amazing, new product that we wanted to share with our equally as amazing readers.
Per-fekt Beauty has managed to create a fabulous alternative to a traditional bronzer or self tanner – it’s called Body Perfection Gel. This gel is designed to give your skin the hydration and glow that it needs while leaving it toned and firm to improve your skin’s elasticity. Here are a few things that we love about this product:
Provides a Healthy Glow & Covers Blemishes
Body Perfection Gel, by Per-fekt Beauty, is a great way to cover blemishes, bruises or uneven patches of skin anywhere on your body. You can apply this gel to your face, your legs, your arms and virtually anywhere where you are looking to even our your skin tone. After applying this product, you’ll notice that your skin is left with a wonderful, healthy glow.
An Alternative to Bronzer
Many fans of this gel are using it as an alternative option to using traditional bronzer on their faces. The gel miraculously smoothes out skin tone and leaves you with a great, flawless look. Better yet; it won’t rub off on your clothes as you go about your day. This gel acts as a bronzer, but without threatening to rub off on  your beautiful clothes!
Applies Smoothly & Dries Quickly
Fans also rave that this product goes on smoothly, leaving no spots or streaks. What a difference in comparison to using other self tanning products! The gel blends in with your natural skin tone and doesn’t cake to your face like a lot of other bronzers do. Another plus? It dries quickly, too, so you can apply it shortly before you apply your make up.
A Little Goes A Long Way
Although this product retails just shy of $50, you are sure to get your money’s worth here. For starters, you’ll love the results and the way this gel makes your skin feel. But you’ll also find that the product lasts for a long time. Just a little dab of perfection gel on your finger can cover your entire face smoothly and evenly!
