Forever 21: Creamy Splatter Eyeshadows

It has been several months since I have been to Forever 21. My current client is not in malls, just Walmart and grocery stores. So, no mall work. Boooo! So, I don’t get to visit many of the stores that I used to and, Forever 21 is one of those. Luckily, the mall that is close to me (not counting an outlet mall in the city I live in) does have a Forever 21. I’m so due for a shopping day there. Maybe this weekend.

Anyway, during one of my past visits, I got this colorful palette of cream shadows…

Mega swatch day 010 Mega swatch day 016 Mega swatch day 012I rarely use cream shadows because almost all shadows, and especially cream ones, crease like crazy on me. However, the cool splatter, speckle effects gave way to any excuses I came up with to not buy them…

Here’s what was fun; look at the circles after they have been swatched…

I wasn’t too hopeful though but, I was loving how it went on so easily. I used Ofra’s eye primer, which happens to be the best performing primer for me at the moment, and made a stunning look. Nope, I didn’t snap a photo. By the time I remember, I’m already driving to work. But, mark my words, I got 5 hours of staying power with that look. I didn’t put the creams on lightly either. It was a very bold orange and gray blend.

My lesson is don’t wait so dang long before I swatch new products! Well, a lot of the posts I have coming up are just like this Forever 21 cream palette; I have had them for way too long and now I’m sorry I didn’t break into them earlier.

Plus, I do owe you an EOTD look with these creams.

Have you seen these? What cream shadow is your favorite?
