Product Review—Makeup: CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara

Mascara must be in my top five must have beauty products.  I love mascara.  I love how it can instantly make me look awake—alive even.  I have straight eyelashes and hate the extra step of curling, so  I am a fan of mascaras that do it all—lengthen, volumize and curl my lashes in fell swoop.  […]

Product Review—Makeup:COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation—I Don’t Even Need Concealer!

When I wear foundation, I truly love a liquid formula.  It makes me feel in control—I can apply as little as I want without the look of heavy foundation. Invariably, however, I still need to pile on the concealer after my foundation, and if it’s warm outside, I need to do a little powder dusting […]
