M.A.C – A Novel Romance

I love a tongue in cheek collection and M.A.C always hits the spot. Think Mills & Boon novels, Daytime Soap TV, fantasy lovers filled with desire…A Novel Romance is full of rich and sexy shades made for nighttime (or soap-time) flushed cheeks, heavy-lidded eyes and stand-out lips. Top picks for...
Trilogy Age Proof Hydra-Tone Softening Lotion

Trilogy Age Proof Hydra-Tone Softening Lotion

It’s been awhile since I used a toner, but Trilogy’s new Softening Lotion has turned me around.
