Oooooook. I'll go ahead and go out on a limb here and say it...

 

THIS YEAR'S DRUGSTORE MONTH IS ONE HUNDRED TIMES BETTER THAN LAST YEAR.

I can’t tell you HOW many times I’ve shocked people with the tip that I’m about to fill you in on. I’m talking gasps….clutching of the pearls … Ok. This isn’t a horror movie from the 1920’s.  But still. This one might shake up your makeup-routine a little.
