Alright budget beauty gals, this one’s for you! I’m not too sure how long Forever 21’s Love & Beauty line has been around but I’ve never really paid much attention to it (surprisingly) until they created the Barbie collection a while back. Fast forward to today, and you can find me peeking through the beauty section of Forever 21 more often because there’s actually some pretty decent stuff in there!
Like these long wispy false lashes. They looked super cute in the packaging so I thought to try them out one day and really liked them. Although they’re long, they’re not super thick or heavy so they still look pretty natural. Natural enough for people to stop and ask me what kind of mascara I use sometimes lol. I wish mascara could make my lashes look like this!
Since I liked those wispy beauties so much I decided to try another tempting style that was available. This one has a thicker, more pronounced black band instead of the clear ones I prefer so I hope it’s not too thick or hard. I can never really get those thicker bands to stick and look as natural as falsies with the clear band. But for $2 I’m willing to give it a try.
Now that I’m sporting a full face of makeup 5 days a week, my makeup sponges have been getting pretty dirty pretty quickly. Lately, I’ve just been using them to set my concealer but I don’t have time to clean my sponges as much as I should so I picked up these cute little pink heart shaped sponges. They were about $3 and seemed to be soft so I took a chance on them. I doubt I’ll use them for anything more than pressing powder into my concealer so they should get the job done in a pinch. And look cute while doing so!
Lastly, I picked up this cute little Vanilla Lip Scrub. Partly because it was super cheap at just 2 bucks but mostly because I’m a sucker for lip scrubs. Who doesn’t want smooth, flake free lips 24/7? I know I do so I’m always on the lookout for new products that can help me achieve just that. To be honest, I’m not expecting this cheap little bugger to move the moon and stars. Or all the stubborn flakes from my dry lips but I do hope it surprises me. Great things come in small packages, right?
