Congratulations to our very own Brittany of Clumps of Mascara who gave birth to a beautiful baby girl this week! She’s already following in her mama’s fabulous footsteps (check out the adorable cosmetic case that was awaiting her arrival!).

Question of the Week – Is there a beauty brand that has very rarely, if ever, failed you? If so, enlighten us and tell us why you think their products work so well for you.

Answer: It’s gotta be Too Faced. Their products are nearly always exactly what I expect and don’t let me down. Shadows are pigmented and soft, eye liners are intense and last, lipsticks are creamy and saturated, blushes are colorful and pretty. Love them!
