Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Buttericon ($35.00) This is one of my favorite body moisturizers! The scent is this great herbal-laced lemony fragrance that isn’t overwhelming, nor perfume-y. It’s incredibly thick and hydrating, which makes it ideal for the winter time.

Bliss Softening Socksicon ($48.00) Talk about a luxe gift! These soft gel socks slowly release jojoba, olive oil, and vitamin E while they keep your feet warm. I just love these for curing dry heels and tough feet–I do admit I wish they weren’t so pricey!

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Maskicon ($52.00) This is my go-to when I haven’t slept well. This helps to instantly refresh my face, so at least I don’t look half as tired as I feel. A little goes a long way, and I don’t use it every day or anything, which means the product itself earns its keep by lasting forever. (Okay, not quite forever, but long enough.)

Bliss ‘Thinny Thin Chin™’icon ($48.00) Have you been remiss on slathering your neck in sunscreen and moisturizer?Keep your neck looking youthful with this product. I think this may be the only product on the market (at least mainstream) that’s designed for your neck/under your chin.

The Best Of… series is designed to introduce some of the best products offered by the brand. If you’ve ever wanted to try the brand, these are products worth meeting for the first time.

I am going to try my best to start posting looks more often! I can’t guarantee tons of off-the-wall looks, but I’ll try to at least get more up :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (base), Bobbi Brown Glitz Metallic Eye Shadow (pale gold), Bobbi Brown Holiday ’08 Lip & Eye Palette (Gold Dust, Champagne, Golden Bronze), Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner, Lancome Oscillation mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick (soft gold)
  • Lips: MAC Wild ‘Bout You lipstick (deep berry), MAC Lightswitch 3D Glass (opalescent pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Wild ‘Bout You = Rebel; Lightswitch = Luminary

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner third of the lid, apply Glitz eyeshadow using the 239 brush. Apply Champagne eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Overlay the outer lid with Gold Dust eyeshadow, then darken the outer crease Golden Bronze using the 239. Sweep Champagne underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Lancome mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Copper Diamond shimmer brick using the 129. Apply Wild ‘Bout You lipstick to lips, and then top with Luminary lustreglass for color and shine.
