Makeup Review: Fandom Cosmetics “Keepers of the Peace”

5 on Friday – Convention Gear

It’s after labor day which means summer, and con season, is winding down. This was my first true con season, and it was a blast. We started with the Louisville Arcade Expo (still my favorite of the year), went to InConJunction to checkout a locally ran con, Fandom Fest was disappointing but
