Forever 21 Brown/Taupe Palette!
Hey everyone! I swear, it's been palette week on my blog! I did not plan it that way... and I hope you don't mind! But after posting my Eye Dupes video last night, several people requested swatches of the whole Forever 21 Love & Beauty 21 Shade Palette in Brown/Taupe. So I thought I'd just go ahead and do that for you! In case you haven't seen my dupes video yet... check it out! haha :) But basically, this palette is $9.80 and it has quite a bit of overlap with shades in the Naked & Naked2 palettes. I point out the specific shades in the video.

These shadows are actually quite a bit larger than the size of a MAC eyeshadow. As you can see from the swatches above, there are lots of shimmery shades (some a little more shimmery than others), and three totally matte shades.
I threw together a quick look with this palette this morning. I used a pearly shade (top row, 3rd from left) on the inner part of the lid. I sheered it out as a highlight under the brow as well. I used the peachy shimmer (middle row, 3rd from left) all over the lid, and then blended the matte brown (top row, 3rd from right). I used the matte black (top row, far right) on the outer corner, and blended a little bit of the black along with the matte brown under the eye. I finished it off with some liquid liner on the upper lashline, and a coat of mascara on the top & bottom lashes!
I'm really loving this palette! :) I was so surprised by the quality of these shadows. The pigmentation and soft texture is really awesome. Also... it's a double blog day today! :) I'll have my Shop My Stash & Friday Fill in the Blank post later!
