Too Faced Natural Eye Palette

Hey everyone, today I am reviewing the very beautiful Natural Eye palette from Too Faced Cosmetics.

The Too Faced Natural Eye palette is a collection of nine neutral eyeshadows: three matte,  three satin, and three pearly/glittery colors. Three eyeshadows are large in size (0.07 oz each) and six are small (0.03 oz each). The palette comes with a sample of eye shadow primer insurance.


The back of the packaging has a description from one of the Too Faced makeup artists, to create three different looks along with the basic info for the palette.

This is a good palette for people who are beginners or love to wear Neutral shades. The colors would compliment any skintone.


There are some shades in this palette that are very close dupes for some of the shades in the Urban decay’s Naked 2 Palette.

According to website:
What It Is: 
The Natural Eye, Neutral Eye Shadow Collection, contains everything you need to create the pretty, soft, and slightly sexy "natural eyes" you've seen on super models and celebrities and have always wanted to perfect for yourself. The three easy-to-follow, step-by-step Glamour Guides lead you through every fun step to insure a professional looking application every time! 

Shades:


Day Look:
Heaven: It is a lovely matte ivory shade. It reminds me of MAC’s creamy bisque eyeshadow. It is a good highlighter shade.
Velvet Revolver: It is a matte taupe shade.
Sexspresso: It is a matte brown shade.

Classic Look:
Silk Teddy: It is a pearly champagne shade.
Push-up: It is a pearly pinky-brown shade that has a copper undertone.
Erotica: It is a satin dark brown shade with very fine shimmer.

Fashion Look:
Nude Beach: It is a glittery champagne shade. It looks gorgeous in pan but it has a lot of fallout.
Honey Pot: It is a pearly gold shade. It looks more like Urban decay’s Half Baked.
Cocoa Puff: It is a satin brown shade that has very fine shimmer. This is the most pigmented shade in the bunch.


I love Silk Teddy and Push up as overall lid shades with Cocoa puff, Erotica and Sexspresso as crease shades.






Formula:
There are three different formulas for the eyeshadows. Nude Beach and Silk Teddy are the least pigmented and have a lot of fallout. Honey Pot and Cocoa Puff has good pigmentation and buttery formula. The eyeshadows are very well blendable.

                      (L-R: Heaven, Silk Teddy, Nude Beach, Velvet Revolver, Sexspresso, Push-up,  
                       Erotica, Honey Pott, Cocoa Puff)

Packaging:
It has a classic compact cardboard packaging with a magnetic flap to close the palette. The palette also comes with three instruction cards on how to create a day, classic and fashion eye look, which is pretty useful.

Prons:
- Pigmentation of most of the shades is good.
- The eyeshadows can be mixed and matched to create a variety of looks.
- The colors are universally flattering.
- Three different finishes in one palette.
- Consistency of satin and matte shades is extremely buttery and they blend  
  easily.
- The palette is small and compact so it is good for travel.
- The matte shades also work as good eyebrow fillers.

Cons:
- The shadows contain methylparaben, silica, and propylparaben.
- Shade Nude Beach has a lot of fallout.
- Shade Heaven can be chalky for darker skintones.
- It is a difficult task to pull out the cards from their slot every time. (I use 
  my tweezer for this!)

Retail Price: $36

Will I repurchase: No. It is not a unique palette. It’s good for beginners  I will prefer to keep on buying Naked palette instead.

What do you think of this palette?
