 Not really... haven't ever found one I like.Do you know your undertone color? Not a clue. I think neutral to warm but I'm never sure.

Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months? Yes of course... doesn't mean I listen though.
What brand of mascara do you use? Currently Lancome Hypnose Waterproof in Black and Collection 2000 Longer Lashes in Intense Black. Neither of them are perfect though. Think I'll go back to Bourjois.
