    thanls for the info but i need to know about a certain braclet wendy had on one of hershowes last week i do not know how to submit apicture of my self to get the info i need from her about this item thanks for any help

  14. Hi Merrell, Thanks for sharing your tips. I wanted to share a couple of things that I LOVE and can’t be without. The first is that I recently got Eyelash extensions and I LOVE them! I needed a perfect eyeliner to compliment, go on easy as to not mess up the extensions and last all day-Loreal Voluminous Traceur Yuex Black eyeliner Pen is awesome for this job. I also am in LOVE with Urban Decays Nakeds eyeshadow palett, it contains 12 of the most beautiful eyecolors that I am having so much FUN mixing and matching, I had to stalk Sephora for this amazing kit! I also would never start my eye makeup without first using Urban DecaysEyeshadow Primer Potion. My eyes look amazing and people stop me to ask about my eye makeup. Here’s to beautiful faces everywhere! Kimberly :)
