Project Pan: The Pannening

Smashbox Drawn In Decked Out Shadow and Highlight Set Review

  Every year, brands pass themselves out releasing special holiday editions of their makeup. Truth be told there’s a lot of crap out there, and what’s not crap is often very overpriced. Sometimes we get lucky though and hit that sweet spot of a makeup […]

The 12 Eyeshadow Palettes of Christmas
