Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow

Invest

Though I’ve been quite diligent when it comes to wearing sunscreen this summer, somehow a short walk to the grocery store resulted in a wee bit of skin darkening.

Benefit’s New Makeup Remover

Benefit has a new makeup remover out called “Gee…That was Quick!” The remover is a liquid that you put on a cotton pad which you then use to wipe your face. No rinsing or further cleansing is needed. I love Benefit products and when I saw the cleanser I was… perplexed. As far as I […]
