Review: Born Pretty Store | False Lashes*

*This is a sponsored post. All content is based on my sole honesty. Please see the Disclosures for further information.
I honestly feel so bad for my poor eyelashes lol. Every time I wear makeup, false lashes are a definite must! Don't get me wrong, I'll tear apart from my falsies and let my real lashes take a break. But then again, I don't wear makeup every single day, so I can justify it a bit for wearing falsies when I do wear makeup right? :)

The evian Facial Spray is a staple in my summer makeup routine to keep my face cool and refresh! However, it is winter time now and I find myself still reaching for this to hydrate my face throughout the day because the harsh coldness = super dry skin.
