  • 3LAB: Why do you participate in New York Magazine's Weddings Event?
  • Lauren Napier: I am a dedicated fan of New York Magazine. The magazine is chic, sophisticated and hilarious. This directly translates to their readership. For me it just seems like the right place to be!

  • 3LAB: It truly looks like a wonderful place to be and as I am sure so much to look forward to, but what is your favorite thing about the event?
  • LN: I enjoy meeting new brides. New brides exude a level of pure happiness and excitement that is contagious.

  • 3LAB: What advice do you give the brides to get flawless skin for perfect makeup application?

  • LN: Start out by eliminating the caffeine, then drink water by the gallon. Exfoliate dull skin away with the 3Lab Perfect Scrub then pair with the Super H Serum which moisturizes without creating shine. Moisturize with 3Lab's WW Cream, this is a remarkable product. The WW Cream aids in brightening sallow, winter skin.

  • 3LAB: We actually might go home and try that tonight! Where does your favorite look for a bride start?

  • LN: My favorite bridal look is a look that all women can achieve. My favorite look starts with healthy, radiant skin.

  • 3LAB: We couldn't agree with you more. So what are your must-haves to create your famous beauty looks?

  • LN: My must haves are 3Lab's Perfect Mask and WW Cream, Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara and Lipstick Queen's Oxymoron Matte Lip glosses.

  • 3LAB: And what beauty advice would you can offer our readers?
  • LN: Healthy skin begins with healthy skin care and Don't be afraid to invest in your skin or your makeup artist!

  • 3LAB: Thank you for taking the time out to talk to us Lauren, it really was a pleasure!
  • LN: Thank you so much!

With all of these futuristic ingredients, we hope they really have found the magical ingredient to stay forever young!"

M Magazine:
"3LAB Skincare range at Bloomingdale's
By now we know the fountain of youth doesn't exist. And the only thing that's going to improve facial crevices is something born from fact not fiction. So we're more than a little impressed with 3Lab's offerings. The New-York based skincare brand that has just landed in Bloomingdale's, Dubai Mall has its own research facility and laboratory. There is a 28-product range, but the unguent we we'd spend out dirhams on is the Super "h" Serum. It contains the world's first synthetic-grade growth hormone to make a difference not only how the skin looks, but how it behaves itself, too."

Thank you to Insider and M Magazine!
