Product Empties and Old Products

So I've been saving up all my old products and my empties. I don't go through stuff as fast as most people. It's also difficult to find uses for most products. I don't have short hair and I'm very loyal to some brands, so I don't use a lot of the samples.

Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Mascara Review

Today, I will be doing a review on Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Mascara. Lancome is not cruelty free, so they test on animals. This also means that they are not vegan. This costs $27.50 on their website. The tube is black and curvy with a blue band between the cap and the tube. The top part of the cap is flat with a bit of gold on it. Lancome is written on one side of the cap while Lancome Hypnose is written on the other side.
The wand is straight with many fiber bristles along every part of it.
