Mrs. Lilien’s Beauty Musts

If I were this smashing stylist, gorgeous graphic designer, and exquisite etiquette expert, I’d turn this post into a rhyme of witty proportion. Alas, all I can do is direct you to Mrs. Lilien’s brilliant blog and shoppe and let her chic cleverness speak for itself. After you’ve perused The Mrs.’ super-fancy portfolio, you’ll appreciate her prized beauty picks all the more. Chin-chin! –Elizabeth

(clockwise) No. 4 Fleurs de Temps Body Lotion ($28) – Euphoria in a bottle! The scent is so luxurious, and the buttery emollience is full throttle!  Wrinkies & Frownies ($20) – This is old school botox sans the injection – pain-free wrinkle repeller perfection!  Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream ($23) – Hair cream of the gods, and my secret ingredient for taming my rather ferocious extra short bob! Miss Dior Cherie ($59) – A most intoxicating yet ladylike aroma—that draws out a fantastically fancy persona!  Origins Clean Energy ($19) – The ultimate face cleansing oil. A phenomenon all it’s own that would refresh even the driest gargoyle!  Sephora Only Gold For Me ($9) – Hands down my favorite top coat. It’s loaded with bling and all kinds of happy—the ultimate gloomy-day antidote!

    ABOUT BETS
    Born and raised in Minnesota by surprisingly low-maintenance parents, beauty writer and lifestyle editor Elizabeth Dehn (aka Bets) spent her awkward years buying Mood lipstick and whipping up DIY face masks before founding Beauty Bets in 2009 as a way to share candid product reviews and real beauty advice for smart women everywhere. When she’s not test-driving the latest beauty treatment (bee venom facial, anyone?) or serving as the beauty editor for Mpls. St. Paul Magazine and ClementineDaily.com, Elizabeth can be spotted running the Minneapolis Lakes with her white lab, Molly Thomas, or sipping champagne on a killer patio. Pass the sunscreen.
