Beauty Review: Mascaras That MEAN It post image

I don’t think any gal will deny that you are never fully ready to face the world without a coat or two of mascara. It truly is amazing what a difference a few swipes of a wand can make!

There is nothing sexier than long, luscious lashes- they just give you this bright eyed, subtly sensuous look that is totally irresistible. There are countless mascaras out there that claim to be the end all be all when it comes to long, full lashes. Some work while others leave you with nothing but a big heap of disappointment.
