- Does L’Oreal Bare Naturale Mascara Thicken, Lengthen AND Separate Lashes?

- Wedding Palette Auditions: Stila Cover Look No. 2

- Estee Lauder Vintage Jewels Holiday Collection: Holiday Treasure
“Estee Laduer should’ve called this a long-wearing eye pencil, too, because DANG, this stuff stays on forever.
