Too Faced Natural Eye Palette (swatches and color breakdown)



This is my first experience with Too Faced eyeshadows and I am incredibly impressed. The shadows are so soft and easy to blend; a little goes a very very long way. This palette in particular is so versatile; the colors are natural and easy to wear, but at the same time there are so many different possibilities with just these 9 colors. You can go from daytime to nighttime and dramatic with just this one palette.

Details, Swatches and color breakdowns...




Upon opening the palette, there is a pocket which holds 3 cards giving 3 of the endless ideas for looks.





Eyeshadows and swatches (laid out on my hand in the same order as in the palette):


No base:


With a base (concealer):



Color Breakdown (colors from left to right):
HEAVEN: A cream colored matte with a very soft creamy texture. This color makes a beautiful highlight or a smooth base on the entire eye area. Definitely one of my favorites.

VELVET REVOLVER: A soft matte brown also of a very creamy texture. This color makes a great crease and transition color. It can also be used as an overall wash of color for deep skintones.

SEXPRESSO: A very deep dark matte brown that is also soft in texture but not quite as soft as Heaven and Velvet Revolver. It's great for smudging at the lashline or deepening the crease.

SILK TEDDY: A shimmery champagne eyeshadow that is soft and easy to work with. It would be lovely as a highlight, on the inner corner of the eyes, or to add a little shimmer to the lid.

PUSH-UP: This golden brown is similar in texture to Silk Teddy. This would be a gorgeous lid color when going for a darker look, as well as a more neutral look for deep skintones.

EROTICA: This deep dark brown is similar in color to Sexpresso, however there is a hint of golden sparkle that actually stays on during application. So lovely for a dramatic look with that added glistening detail.

NUDE BEACH: Though it is very similar to Silk Teddy, Nude Beach has a bit of added pizazz with it's hint of glitter. Still smooth and easy to work with, this color would be great to layer over other colors to give a bit more sparkle. However, out of all 9 colors, this one does give a bit of fall out with the glitter being slightly more on the chunky side.

HONEY POT: A gorgeous warm gold, this color is smooth and incredibly versatile. It can be used as a wash of color, on the lid, inner corners of the eyes, or anywhere you desire. It would also make a great golden highlight color for darker skintones.

COCOA PUFF: With a similar texture to Erotica, this color however is more of a golden brown, still with that touch of gold sparkle. It would be lovely in the crease or smudged along the bottom lashline.

I love this palette! I swear when I saw the swatches on someone's blog or something the other day. But it's not worth $34 to me. =/ lol
It's soooo freaking tiny. Hopefully it'll go on sale.

BEAUTIFUL!!! Great colors and I love the tutorial cards. I bought this set for my 38 year old teacher best friend and my 16 year old niece for their August birthdays. They both loved it! I guess I need to go buy myself one too! ;)

Hello!! I love your blog xoxox How can I keep this pallet from looking ashy on me (especially the highlight colors)? I love the colors, but once I place them together they don't retain their individual color/ pigment/ intensity. I use Mac paint pot; but, when I blend these colors together (especially creasing) they mutate into another color, which is quite unflattering and greenish! I would also like to know why you use Too Faced Shadow Insurance (primer) and MAC Painterly Paintpot (base) simultaneously??
Thanks
