I Found a Good One in Rimmel

The Mascara Games: Fear and Loathing at the Drugstore

Not too long ago, as I was half-squatting, half-sprawling on the floor of my local drugstore, unsuccessfully searching the lowest possible shelf for a replacement mascara, a question popped into my head. Do all beauty products get discontinued within a year's time, or just the ones I like?...more
