Review-Forever 21's Love and Beauty Trio in Bronze

I’m pretty sure that Forever 21 is a brand that everyone links with clothes and accessories for girls and guys at affordable rates, and not with makeup. It’s been a while since Forever 21 introduced their make line; Love & Beauty and I got my hands on one of their eye shadow trio’s a while back, namely Bronze.

 
The packaging is fairly girly but study at the same time. Most of the time I find that if you pay less for your makeup, especially something under $5, then you don’t get the sturdiest packaging. This was definitely not the case here, and along with a good quality exterior, you get a huge mirror in it too which is perfect for touchups. 

The eye shadows themselves would fall into the nude-smokey category and you get quite a lot of eye shadow for each color. The first one is my favorite, which is perfect for just a little color on your eye-lids for everyday use. This color would probably turn out to be a bit more bronze-y n fairer complexions, but it works beautifully on my olive-toned skin. 


All of the three eye shadows have excellent pigmentation and barely any fallout. The eye shadows are soft, opaque within a single swipe and have a tiiiny hint of glitter, nothing that would look a bit much in the daylight. The colors are perfect if you want to take your look from subtle to dark without too much fuss. 

All in all, I’d highly recommend this. I’d say that Forever 21 is actually trying to give ELF a run for their money with their excellent quality and unbeatable prices. 

BEST PART=PRICE= $2.80

What do you guys think? Like the colors? Have you tried any Forever 21 makeup? Let me know in the comment below and make my day :D

Until next time, tc.
