Ellen’s Tips:

Don’t believe the ads. They exaggerate—in words and pictures.

Expensive is often NOT the best!

Ask for a (free) sample or apply it in the store.

Give it a “real world” trial (drinking coffee with lipstick; work-to-evening mascara).

Don’t buy before asking if used makeup can be returned for a full refund.

The Winners:

Lipstick – Kat Von D

Mascara – L’Oreal Telescopic Original

    On 9/14/14 a reader asked about long-lasting lipstick. I like Estee Lauder’s starlit pink which can be purchased for $18.50 at Macy’s.
