Whether you're into makeup or not, we can all agree that mascaras are an essential beauty item. It ties an entire look together and is probably the one of the few things that truly creates a significant difference compared to other makeup items. It's both a blessing and a curse that you should only use them for three months, because at least that gives you an opportunity to try as many as you want!
