Milk Makeup Shadow Quad Review

Milk Makeup Shadow Quad Review In my defense, this purchase was peer pressure. Yep, it was Mother’s Day and my husband came with me into the store. He’s such a doll and wanted to buy me some new makeup, because he knows I love it so much. The problem is, I can’t buy stuff when he’s watching me. It’s like peeing in a public forum, I just can’t do it. I get stage fright.

Truth is, I knew better, but sometimes you just gotta take a chance on a long shot. Please continue reading of the full Milk Makeup Shadow Quad Review.

So, how does this palette stand up to its predecessor? Continue reading “Viseart Theory Minx II Palette Review”

If you are interested in reading my full review, please continue reading. Continue reading “Kevyn Aucoin Diamond Eye Gloss Review”
