    Loving the Multi Tasker for eyeliner and brow filler. Loving the Mineral Veil and brush set, especially after following another video’s tip: applied it using a clean mascara brush between the 1st and 2nd coats of mascara, while the first coat is still wet… it really made my lashes pop.

  • Jennifer Duval

    I have a lot of the make up already and LOVE it, I’m excited to try multi tasker and the mascara when it’s available
