    Really like this series! God it’s so hard… honestly a lot of times I buy expensive Sephora stuff because I have acne and contacts. So I can go to Sephora and try something, wear it for the day… and then see how my skin and eyes react. I’ve just given so many drug store finds a chance, and then I have to deal with the consequences and can’t like, return the product.

    Also if I may add a recommendation… Loreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black is my favorite mascara. I’ve gotten more expensive ones but that is my favorite one so far, and it doesn’t bother my eyes. 🙂
