But if you’re not going to use every colour in a […]

Shelly commented on the post, What type of beauty products do you splurge on? 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Foundation, concealer, some makeup brushes, and I would spend a bit more on hair tools I’d use a lot (hair dryer, flat iron).

[* I would spend more on a unique colour from a higher-end brand.]

Shelly commented on the post, How often do you use eyeshadow primer? 4 months, 3 weeks ago
