Smashbox Try It Kit: Best Sellers Review

smashboxOne of the first actual kits that I ever bought from a company that I have been lusting after was from Smashbox. It’s a five piece kit that has some of Smashbox’s best selling products. In this kit, it has samples of their Photo Finish Foundation Primer, the Photo Finish Lid Primer, Limitless Eyeliner in Onyx, the Full Exposure Mascara, and their Lip Enhancing Gloss gloss Illume.

However, if you add a little technique to your application, you’ll get better results.

First Impression of the Maybelline Volum’ Express Rocket Mascara

Last week, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and I bought the Maybelline Volum’ Express Rocket Mascara. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to buy it in the first place, because I have been missing out terribly.
