    scent: dkny woman, the limited edition fragrance

  25. Yazmin

    Oh yeah i forgot to mention, chrisitne ive been meaning to ask you, i know this is completely off topic, but why has the look of the new mac brushes changed? like the metal part of a permanent brush isnt the same to anything in the limited edition collection, i noticed in the brushes that were released in the last collection and 226. They are now very similar to the fake mac brushes. not that i am interested in buying mac brushes on ebay, but what if someone wanted to sell a genuine mac limited edition brush, they wouldnt be able to due to the fact that there is no difference between them to make an informed decision?

  26. NeenaJ

    Mellan’s saying “Lemme at that crappy retailer that made you feel so bad!”
