The verdict: Another new addition to the L.A. Girl stable is this matte eyeliner. It comes in four different colours – Intense Black, Cobalt, White and Espresso.

      The Dr Paw Paw lip balm range is a must-have, Fency! The Peach Pink variant adds a hint of soft, beautiful color to lips and cheeks for a natural glow. The product is long-lasting and non-sticky. Nothing worse than sticky lips!
