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.

Stila Holiday 2012 Collection featuring the Stila Snow Angel Color Palette

Stila Holiday 2012

Stila Holiday 2012 launches today featuring their traditional line up of a Lipglaze Gift Set and massive palette. The Stila Snow Angel Color Palette looks quite lovely but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before from the brand.

With such an early Holiday 2012 launch I imagine we’ll see more as the Holiday draws closer and that more will probably come in the form of some sort of Travel Girl style palette round.

Take a look at Stila Holiday 2012 after the jump!

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush for Fall 2012

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush Fall 2012

HD Blush from E.L.F.? That’s happening!

E.L.F. Studio HD Blush ($3) is a new five shade blush selection that quite resembles Make Up For Ever HD Blush. The resemblance is uncanny but the price tag, not so much. E.L.F.’s competitive pricing brings these in at a mere three bucks each.

I hurried to order four of the five shades yesterday because I feared they’d sell out super fast.

Take a look!
