L’Oreal is one of the biggest beauty companies in the world, with countless brands under their belt, from high-end, to drugstore, to pharmacy brands, to niche.

Difficult eyeshadow formulas and how to conquer them (& a review of MAC’s Dazzleshadows)

Recently MAC came out with a new eyeshadow formula, the Dazzleshadows, which, well, dazzle.

That got me thinking, because I guess we all have that eyeshadow graveyard full of gorgeous shadows that are a b***** to apply. Here’re our best application tips for challenging eyeshadow formulas and our best tools that will help you with that.READ MORE
