Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara Review

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara 9

Fiber mascara aka OMG I HAVE SOMETHING IN MY EYE GET IT OUT! is not my favorite mascara of choice.

I don’t do so well with fiber mascaras. Anytime I used them I always felt like I had a lash stuck up under my upper waterline and I go through the day absolutely miserable trying hard not to scratch an eyeball out trying to get to that imaginary hair.

NYC New York Color Cosmetics Sun n’ Bronze NYC New York Color Cosmetics Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer for Spring 2012

NYC New York Color Sun n Bronze Smooth Skin Primer 1

NYC New York Color Cosmetics are starting to haul out the bronzers for Spring. I dunno about you but my Spring break includes a trip to Gallifrey One, so where as others will be hitting Cancun or their local drugstore to get their bronze on I’ll be getting my glow on hunched over a table getting my drool all over Mark Sheppard’s shirt while telling him to sign it to his best girl.
