Thanks to Stephanie at mammamoiselle.com for a very nice review….let’s have a giveaway! Go to mammamoiselle.com for the details. Good luck!!
Lip Bliss™ by What’s Your Virtue? makes a perfect gift for the holiday – and what I love about this lip gloss line is that I can gift it to both my teenage cousins, my 23 year old sister and friends of mine in their thirties. This lip gloss line has a message, along with the quality product, that women of all ages can appreciate!
This awesome company was started by three friends who all believe that we should, as women, live by the notion that beauty comes from within…and be helping our daughters to see that. The idea came when a mother went shopping with her teen and preteen daughters. She was upset to see some of the explicit and suggestive names that were found on the various brands of lip gloss. She didn’t like the message it gave her daughters and just found it inappropriate. A lip gloss with a more positive message was born after collaborating with friends.
Lip Bliss offers a hydrating formula with a great shades – each named after the virtues we should remember to live by. Their shades are perfect for women of all complexions and ages. Made with castor, cranberry and safflower and peppermint oils, this lipgloss packs a smooth radiance without all the stickiness. Best of all, Lip Bliss is gluten-free, not tested on animals and contains no parabens.
Great message, great ingredients…great gift idea.
“What’s Your Virtue?, a company founded by three friends who believe beauty starts from within. We want to remind all women of the simple and virtuous things in life. What better place to start than on your lips?” -whatsyourvirtue.com
A few weeks ago I discovered a up and coming lipgloss brand called LipBliss by the company What’s your Virtue?. I knew immediately I believed in what this company was doing and the message behind it. The purpose is to use positive virtues such as Devotion, Wisdom, Kindness, Generosity, as color names for their lipglosses.
It all started when a woman shopping with her teenage and pre-teen daughter discovered that many cosmetics company and their product names were innapropriate and sending negative messages to girls everywhere. She wanted to create a lipgloss that women could buy and feel good about gifting or buying for themselves.
I LOVE this concept, and would love to see this in more of our cosmetics out there today.
These would be great for woman of any age, the colors are pretty sheer or lightly tinted. They have a minty smell, and a very creamy , long lasting glossy texture.
They contain: castor, cranberry, and safflower seed oils, nourishing peppermint oil, green tea extracts, and moisturizing vitamin E. LipBliss is gluten free, not tested on animals, and contains no parabens.
Go check out the website if you want to find out more information about LipBliss!
It’s time to start preparing for fall now that it is finally October and I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite fall 2012 beauty trends straight from the runways. Fall beauty trends ranged from minimal make-up to cobalt blue cat-eyes, just be sure to have fun with it.
Red lips were seen all over the fall runways. Pair with minimal make-up and you are good to go. And, if you like your lips to be shiny, Simplicity Lip Bliss goes great over lip sticks.
Rosy cheeks were all the rage too. These also work well with minimal make-up and would look great with our Devotion Lip Bliss.
While you might not to wear these butterfly inspired smoky eyes every day for fall, this is a great look for going out. You can get this same effect with just about any three colors and is great for those who prefer a more non-traditional smoky eye.
Like French Manicures? Try a reverse French this fall with colored tips and either a colored or neutral base. This is a fun look that you can even do from home.
Well, there you have it! These were my favorite fall trends that I will be sure to test out and rock all season long.

A former Ford model, the Eliza Magazine founder, mother and one-half of The Girls with Glasses web series, reveals what keeps her beautiful.
In the morning I splash a handful of water on my face and apply Dermalogica Active Moist moisturizer and Innovative Skincare Clinical Eye Complex—I am obsessed with it. My makeup routine starts with Armani foundation as a concealer and La Mer The Treatment Powder all over. Then it’s a touch of mascara, blush and a natural lip gloss.
Overnight skin ritual:
I sonic care my skin and use Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel to clean it, then use my IS Clinical Eye Complex and a heavier moisturizer like Aveeno Positively Ageless Night Cream. I have really dry skin and need something that is going to moisturize.
Who cuts/colors your hair:
Nikki Providence is my favorite.
My most unique hair technique is to use hot rollers—yes, hot rollers! I can throw them in in three minutes and for the rest of the day I have smooth, shiny and healthy-looking hair.
Favorite eye look:
Cat eye, all the way! NYX’s Super Skinny Eye Marker makes it easy to do.
On a daily basis I usually wear gloss, but lately I have been obsessed with Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Satin lipstick in Belgravia.
Nail color of the moment:
Scotch Naturals in Leprechaun Lynch.
I use Method’s Pure Naked Body Wash in Magnolia. I love the smell and usually don’t mix a scent over it.
“Never without” product:
What’s Your Virtue? Lip Bliss gloss in Kindness. Love the color, consistency and message.
Secret to staying young and beautiful:
Choose to smile.
