Forever 21 Love & Beauty 10 Natural Eyeshadow Palette - Naked Dupe?

Every time you blink, a new company is coming out with a dupe for Urban Decay's Naked Palette.  Here is one from Forever 21's Love & Beauty Line that focuses more on the browns, bronzes, and golds.  So, if you find you would use creep and gunmetal from UD very seldom, this might be an alternative palette for you.  This retails for $6.80 and contains 10 eyeshadows, a black eyeliner (which is not great and pulls a bit), and a double-ended sponge tip/angle brush applicator.
The colors in the palette have no names and they are all fairly pigmented (the one with the worst pigmentation is the gold). There are a mix of mattes, shimmers, and one that is more of a glitter.

With these shadows, you want to make sure you use a primer.  For the photos, I was using a foundation I don't like as a base.  But in order to get the most wear and color, definitely up for a primer.

Overall, I think this is a good alternative if you cannot afford the naked palette, but love having a palette that can travel with you.  The case comes with a mirror in it and the box is actually a cute leopard pattern. For me, I'd say the quality is a bit less than the wet and wild palettes, but still amazing for the price.

Also, I'll be posting a look with the golden shadow tomorrow and using the black eyeliner, so stay tuned!


  1. It seems like an OK dupe, but I'd still go with UD :)

  2. @Vintage Yeah, I would definitely still recommend the Naked Palette. I know it's a hefty price, but you get a ton of shadows and can create a variety of looks. I think this one would be good for those looking to stick to a budget or for younger girls just starting out

  3. wow thats so good, i need to get that haha;L i followed your blogg;)

  4. This palette looks great, it looks similar to the NAKED palette by UD :)

    Love Christine ♥

  5. This looks really similar to the palette, and those swatches are pretty good. Next time I go to the mall I'll totally check this out! Thanks for the review :)
