Forever21 Accessory Haul + New Hair Care

I stopped by Forever21 just to look around and I ended up buying a few accessories since they were so cheap.

Braided skinny belts $2.50 each

Bow stud earrings $1.50

Feather necklace $2.80

Aaand, for the longest time, I had so many shampoos and conditioners under my bathroom sink that were half full. (I can't be the only one right?? Haha.) I'm almost done trying to finish them off and finally decided it was time to try something new. I heard EverPure is good so I'm excited to try it.

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

WHERE TO BUY: LUSH stores & counters,
PRICE: $8.95

- Makes lips soft and smooth.
- Tastes yummy.
- Quick and easy to use.

- Sort of pricey

MY THOUGHTS: I was really interested when LUSH came out with lip scrubs, but I wasn't sure if it was worth it. I thought that for $9 I could just keep using my toothbrush. But one day, while visiting a LUSH counter, a friendly employee convinced me to try it. SOLD. My only problem was figuring out which flavor I wanted.

You take a small amount and rub it onto your lips. Once you're done, you just lick it off! No need to wash or wipe it away. Bubblegum tastes super yummy, just like candy. If sweet isn't your thing, it comes in other flavors like mint julip and sweet lips. It's basically a lip exfoliator, making them feel softer and smoother. For me, it works faster than a toothbrush and it's convenient to have. $9 might seem like a lot for a lip scrub, but it does last a long time since you only need a small amount.

Wet N Wild Mega Length Waterproof Mascara

WHERE TO BUY: Drugstores (I got mine from Walgreens)
PRICE: $2.99

- Holds a curl.
- Lengthens & defines lashes.
- Doesn't get clumpy.
- Waterproof.
- Cheap.

- None that I can think of.

MY THOUGHTS: To be honest, I wasn't expecting too much from this. Being a broke college student, I needed a new mascara that was nice and cheap. I found this at Walgreens for $2.99 and figured it could hold me over until I could get a newer one. I actually ended up really liking it! Not only does this hold a curl, but it lengthens nicely without any clumps, even through a second coat. With most mascaras, I can't use multiple coats because my thin lashes get lost in a sea of clumps. It seems like wet n wild's products are getting better and better.

Sinful Colors: Mint Apple

Finally jumped on the minty-green polish bandwagon. This is 2 coats. Loveee it! Especially since it only costs $1.99. As you can see, it has tiny shimmers too. Sinful colors might be my favorite drugstore polishes. They have such a wide range of colors at cheap prices.
