Musings of the Day: It’s Ok To Shop for Makeup at Forever 21

Forever 21 Love Beauty Shimmer Tinted Lip Gloss 1

Some title eh? But I really like digging through the Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Collection when checking out. They always have those buckets that surround you as you edge towards the register in what seems like the never ending line from hell (why is F21 always so damn busy?).

I think they intentionally put all that stuff around to either 1. make super spontaneous sales or 2. to keep you entertained while you’re waiting with twenty people in front of you.

Palettes, glosses, oh my! All utter rubbish of course but sometimes, well only sometimes it’s ok to shop for makeup at Forever 21.

No shame in my game.

L’Oreal Project Runway Fall 2012 L’Oreal True Match Blush in The Muse’s Blush Review & Swatches

L’Oreal True Match Blush The Muse’s Blush

The new L’Oreal Project Runway Fall 2012 Collection features four, limited edition shades of L’Oreal True Match Blush. I purchased two of these from L’Oreal’s Project Runway Fall 2011 Collection and absolutely adored them so I was quite excited with a relaunch of new shades.

I’ve been trying to hunt around my local drugstores for the new display for the Fall 2012 launch but no luck yet. Anyone else have better luck than me?

L’Oreal True Match Blush in the Muse’s Blush is the perfect shade of blush not only because I love peach but because, hey, it’s kinda sorta named after me!

Maybelline Gold Shimmer Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Maybelline Gold Shimmer Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow 1

As you know Maybelline has introduced eight shades of limited edition Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow. Wahoo excited much?

I’ve never been a fond fan of cream eyeshadows but a few years ago I just completely fell in love with the formula. Dare I say, sometimes, I feel like I like it more than powder.

The introduction of Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow was really quite an epiphany for drugstore makeup. This is proof positive that drugstore makeup has really evolved. These are on par with MAC Paint Pots in terms of quality and what’s not to like about the $5-$7 price tag!

Today I’m taking a look at one of the new shades, Gold Shimmer, you’re going to want this one.
