L'Oreal Infallible Super Slim Liner

We don't know why it took us more than ten years of wearing liquid eyeliner to realize that the key to getting a nice even line was to use something resembling a firm marker and not a malleable brush. Regardless, we're glad we had this epiphany, thanks to the L'Oreal... [More]
