Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup
Yes, our local Forever 21 now carries Love & Beauty cosmetics! I visited SM Megamall last Friday and found them in the accessories section with their own stand. There were blushes, eyeshadows, lip glosses, nail polish, sets, and tools for makeup newbies who are just starting to experiment. The products were reasonably priced at less than P500, too.
I really wanted to try the Smokey and Natural Palettes that come in these huge-ass cardboard boxes, but I don't want to blow P400+ on something I haven't even swatched. :/ I mean yeah it's not expensive but it would be so annoying to find out at home that the palette is a dud (if ever). Hopefully F21 provides testers soon! It wouldn't make sense to allow everyone to try on shoes, clothes, and accessories, but not makeup.
Natural palette. Yes, inspired by Urban Decay's Naked palette. :P

I'm also wildly curious about the animal printed blushes and bronzers. The shades and pigmentation looked promising. Again, wanted to buy, but not until I see how they are when swatched.
Out of all the stuff I saw, this palette looks the most promising. I can tell just by looking at it that it won't disappoint. Nice colors too. I hope I'm right, because I'm buying this next time I'm in Forever 21! If it's still available, that is. It's only less than P350 and reminds me of this NYX palette I have.

I'm not sure if Love & Beauty makeup is already available in the Forever 21 SM Makati branch, but just to be sure, it's better to message them on FB or call them so you won't waste a trip. Now, time to share! What are you most interested in buying?
