The biggest pet peeve is blush that looks great on, than disappears 2 hours later. Mac’s blushes have great colors and great staying power, a real reason that they’re #1 in most professional makeup artists kits. Also try Loreal’s Cheek Stick for a great affordable cream blush.
The winner by a landslide, Lancome’s Aquacils and Intencils. In waterproof and non-waterproof versions, their mascaras do a dramatic job in making your lashes look much darker, longer and thicker. Stays on forever,and washes off easily and painlessly. Too pricey for you? I thought so too, until I used them and believe me, it’s well worth the $$$. Try Max Factor’s 2000 Calorie Mascara, Revlon’s Lashful Mascara, Maybelline’s Soft & Full, and the new FAST LASH MASCARA for great thick lashes as well .
