Prun Eclat!

Prissy Mag alerted me to a fab new mascara (and cheap to boot);
"We were in dire need of new mascara one day while at Monoprix and made a mistake and bought this mascara in color #42 which is Prun Eclat, not black as we intended. Boy are we overjoyed! Prun Eclat looks much more natural on our lashes and we love natural. This amazing mascara doubles the volume of your lashes. It instantly volumizes and is enriched with Vitamin B and opthalmologist tested. Other than Monoprix, you can find it at Sephora, of course.
