TIE: Skin Chic & Smooch Cosmetic Boutique

It’s not often there’s a tie for first in Best of Missoula, but our readers had room in their makeup bags—and their hearts—for two local skincare experts this year. Smooch Boutique’s convenient downtown location prides itself on expert advice that helps identify which of their quality products might work best for your needs. (We couldn’t help but notice the shea-butter-packed lipgloss and the vanilla-birthday-cake-scented body wash.) Smooch has also begun offering Bloom Beauty Boxes, a subscription-based service that sends out a box of samples every couple months and includes coupons to buy the full-sized version of the product. At Skin Chic, you can find out how to apply your potions and creams with their $60 personal makeup lessons. Besides an array of high-quality cosmetics for sale, Skin Chic also offers a full set of esthetician services, from facial peels to lash extensions to wedding makeup. Your most special occasions are in good hands at Skin Chic. Skin Chic: 2901 Brooks, Southgate Mall • 541-8464 •; Smooch Cosmetic Boutique: 125 E Main • 541-1600 •
