Mascara clumps, self confidence, and the tale of “Black Beard”


I don't know about you, but I've tried close to 50 mascaras from the time I was 14.  Everything from drugstore to department store.

The #1 Objection To Our New Mascara

Artichoke, Olive & Chicken “Salad”


I have recently decided to eat a Paleo Diet (the last 6 months).  Yes, I've lost some weight, but more than that - I feel good.

A lot of folks think of allergies as something that happens when you breath in say... a pollen.  While yes, breathing something in can cause an allergic reaction, but your skin also can react in it's own strange ways. A LOT of makeup is made very cheaply, to mean that the ingredients in the makeup, no matter what they cost, have a high probability of being … { Click To Continue }
