Obsessed: ’90s Grunge-Inspired Beauty Products


We know it’s not “Throwback Thursday,” but we were feeling a bit nostalgic today. Whether or not studded jewelry, torn jeans and flannel shirts were wardrobe staples for you in the ’90s, the grunge look was the most notable trend of the era and possibly our favorite (Reality Bites anyone?). We’ve seen the best looks of the decade come back into the fashion world in a big way over the last couple of seasons, but now they are also infiltrating our beauty counters. Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite beauty buys that remind us of the time when Pearl Jam and flannel ruled.
