The Best Mascara Ever

Stop everything you’re doing and sit down. I have HUGE news. Maybe not alien-life news, but still. I found the best mascara ever. It’s a bold statement, I know. But it’s true. Finding a good mascara is tough. It needs to make my lashes look fake, it needs to last all day, and it needs…

I remember stepping away from the mirror after one particular tweezing session and realizing that I had a permanent surprised look on my face. Cute. In…
