When the Estee Lauder Companies announced a few weeks ago it would cease production of its Prescriptives cosmetics line by January 2010, the first thing we here at Latina mourned was the loss of their customizable foundations.

Does This Really Work? Creaseless Cream Shadow
By Sandra Mariscal | 09/11/2009 - 13:00
