The site’s fully integrated shopping cart, powered by a partnership with beautybar.com, enables allure.com users to seamlessly shop from its content. The site currently has over 5,000 buy buttons embedded in content. Before joining the magazine, Jones worked in communications for Fox News and the United States State Department.
