Aubergine from Love & Beauty (Forever 21) NOTD!

WP_20150405_019[1]

Today’s NOTD is my new favourite purple, Aubergine from Forever 21’s Love & Beauty line. Aubergine is a deep, metallic purple filled with blue and purple micro glitter. When the sun catches that glitter, it’s truly stunning! I tried to catch the blue flash it has but it was a little elusive. This line is inexpensive and decent quality for what you’re paying, and worth checking out!

Two coats over a base coat from the same line plus my HG topcoat from NYC.

This one reminds me a little of Rimmel (discontinued) Violet Metal shown here, which I also love, so I’m glad I have this one now!

Have a good week!

Space Matter NOTD – Love & Beauty!

Today’s NOTD is so far up my alley that it’s set up a lawn chair, cracked a beer, and has made itself comfy for a good, long stay. Space Matter is from Love & Beauty, Forever 21’s cosmetic line. And it is fantastic! Neutral but shiny with sparkles, edgy yet subtly so, this became an instant favourite.

Space Matter is a medium/dark grey with silver sparkles. The bottle has a large, square/cube lid and a large, but not flat, brush which made application a little trickier for me but not impossible. The formula dries quickly and was fine in two coats but three was better. I liked it both with and without a topcoat. Interested in seeing what this looks like with a matte topcoat in the future. Shown without, then with a topcoat.

Can’t wait to see how this brand wears. The pics above in sunlight are after a day’s wear. Best of all, it’s cheap too! I never thought I’d ever buy anything from Forever 21, let alone love it! I have a purple shimmery one coming up to share as well.

How’s everyone’s week? Survive April Fool’s Day?
