10.A pack of shadow shields for anyone who has't quite mastered putting on eyeshadow without a cloud of fallout dusting their under eyes. So...ummmm...me.

17.A CoverGirl clear mascara for conditioning your lashes and adding volume without making them feel gloopy. If taking mascara off makes you feel frustrated, opt for this stuff and fear no more!
