Laura Geller Eye Love Baked Collection FOTD

If you’ve never watched QVC, the TV shopping channel, for beauty products, you’re missing a trick.  There are some great brands on there that you can’t buy anywhere else in the UK, and this especially true of some American brands, such as Mally Beauty (purveyor of one my favourite mascaras, but that’s a whole other post that’s begging to be written.) One brand that I’ve felt brave enough to try…
