I know I’ve mentioned it in the past but one of the best things to come from starting this blog is the people I’ve met. Readers, brand reps and my fellow beauty bloggers.

L.A. Girl Rock Star Head Banging is a perfect example of why I started ALU in the first place. It’s a case of not knowing what you’ll get based simply on the bottle. What appeared to be an average teal green shimmer ended up being so much more.
