There are many different versions of a product which could make your shopping experience very chaotic and confusing. Having a general understanding about what you’re looking for helps making the final decision a lot easier.

The four categories are mascara, eyeshadows, lipstick and value bundles. All the items are priced anywhere from $30.00 to $85.00.
