  9. Question for you....does the Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealor actually say "concealor" on it, or does it say foundation? I went to Target, Walmart and Walgreens, and none of them had the concealor. They had little tubs that looked like the one in your Emily Awards video, but the bottle and the little store signs called it foundation. Thanks! I also haven't been able to find the Revlon Precision lash glue, where did you get yours?

  10. I am sure you really know your stuff and any student would love to learn top cosmetic options from you.
