Mascara Must-Have: Anastasia Lash Genius Review

Hi, world and Google footprint!  Angela here.  I like to think I’m the softer side of TheDurianGray BeautyandtheCat. . . we’ll see.  It’s the first day, and I’m still up at 1am blogging.

After reading thousands (ok maybe half a dozen) blog posts, we’ve decided to come up with another one. Because that’s why.

Angela works as a lawyer and I am a bitchy finance person so we will keep most of our posts short and to the point. Due to the schizophrenic information age, I personally believe that more than a few hundred words WILL bore people and lead them to miss critical information.
So here is my first product review (not the first product I’ve ever loved…oh that beautiful cheapo Oil of Olay). Ange will post the next one right Ange?
