It’s Here: Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment in Fig

Benefit’s “They’re Real” Line Grows

So I’m a huge fan of Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara, and They’re Real Push-up Liner, despite hearing/reading somewhere that the Push-Up Liner is one of their most-returned products because people don’t get it.

Hits from L’Oreal Fashion Week

If I’ve been quiet about L’Oreal Fashion Week this season, it’s not because I’ve no material. It’s mainly because I’ve found the fall makeup to be a little uninspiring. I’m done with the smoky eye, and I know that it’s very “fall” but I just don’t think that it’s still here the way it was […]
