12 Best Primers for Long-Lasting Eye Makeup

If you're like most of us, you may be guilty of getting ahead of yourself sometimes.

You start thinking about a baby room, browsing Home Depot for the perfect duck wallpaper -- even though you haven't so much as kissed the guy. The same goes for makeup.

9 Best Hair Color Products

We all love getting pampered at the salon, but when we have to spend $15 for someone to wash our hair, $80 for the color and another $50 for a blow dry ... we've got to consider that there may be better ways to spend our money, agreed? Our philosophy at Total Beauty is -- if we can do it at-home for a fraction of the cost, why not try? In the spirit of that thought, we combed through our thousands of reviews on at-home hair color to discover the products you, our loyal readers, deem topnotch. These winning boxes boast colors that are brilliant and true, long lasting, capable of fully covering grays, and best of all -- they leave hair shiny and actually soft to the touch. These are truly a new generation of at-home hair color products because we no longer have to sacrifice the health of our hair to have a gorgeous new hue.   See products
