The Cosmetics Company Store Goodies

The Cosmetics Company Store always has a good deal going on. These stores are located in outlet malls and they have discounted makeup, perfume, and accessories.

Fenty Makeup Failures: Sorry Rihanna!

No matter what, I will always support and purchase Miss Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line. However, I had to return some of my latest purchases.
