At the time, Page Six Style spoke with the then-budding mogul about her lash collection. “I definitely see myself becoming a mogul in the beauty world,” she said. “I definitely have to put out a lip gloss line. People thought I would do that before I put out an eyelash line; that’s why I didn’t do it!”
