“Into The Gloss” Is Poised To Become The All-Inclusive Mecca Of Beauty Addicts Everywhere

As resident beauty fiend among beauty fiends (my product collection has surpassed hoarder status and shows no signs of ever stopping), I find the Internet to be the most conducive medium by which to feed my addiction.

Ciara has been looking pretty unremarkable in photos lately. Don’t get me wrong, the singer/dancer’s body is still on point, but black leggings and eye-catching heels get kind of boring after a while.
