Unless I know exactly what I want when I walk into a cosmetics store, I'm usually at a loss over where to begin. How on earth am I supposed to know if liquid liner works better than pencil? Or if the volumizing mascara will give me bolder lashes than the lengthening mascara? My best bet is reading product reviews or asking my girlfriends for suggestions. I'm so not trying to drop money on a product that doesn't live up to what it promises on the back of the box. So, I take beauty product recommendations wherever I can get them!
