Sometimes I wish I had more friends. Like a hundred more. Maybe even a thousand. That way, when I wanted to find, say ... the perfect pair of jeans, or the best nude heels, I wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of testing them all out myself. I could just query my vast network of besties and make their tried-and-tested favorites my own — no effort required.
But ... since I’m not expecting a sudden uptick in my own popularity anytime soon, I’m happy to make due with a set of virtual friends. This shopping-savvy crew of mine trawls the aisles of my favorite stores, like Sephora and Nordstrom and Amazon and Target—and isn't afraid to say exactly what they think about the items they've spent their expendable income on.
And I figured it was high time to enlist this collective to help me find the elusive "best waterproof mascara" I've been on the hunt for for years. After all, between them, they’ve laughed till they cried, withstood hot yoga, and endured their kids' swimming lessons without so much as a mascara smear. It's crowdsourcing at its finest.
