Some have multiple levels and most have dozens of sections, all of which are packed with clever tools and gorgeous lip colors and innovative brow products and... agh, I'm getting overwhelmed just thinking about the options.While the storefront can be a challenge to navigate at times due to the massive selection, it can be even harder for my fellow chocolate sisters and brothers who are trying to find their perfect shades.
