Happy November, you guys!
For the past few months, I’ve had a post up on the 1st day of each month and I’m super proud of myself for keeping up.
I bet you don’t think about this as often as you should. But, your makeup truly doesn’t last forever. Or at least for as long as you want to keep it.
Hey guys. Another review here!
Whenever I post a review of a product on the blog, I just like to think that it is helping someone somewhere make a good purchase decision. The thing about me is, I can check for reviews of literally anything in the world. It’s so bad, I’ve checked for reviews of the rat tail comb. I mean, the 50naira blue comb that everybody has.
