Review: Too Faced Natural Eye Shadow Palette Kit

Posted by Ori on 11/22/2011
Too Faced Natural Eye Shadow Palette Kit is described as the Neutral Eye Shadow Collection which contains colours to recreate either a soft pretty "natural eyes" look or a more raunchy sexy look that's more appropriate for night time glamour. It also contains 3 step by step 'how to' cards to eliminate the guesswork when it comes to the application of the eye shadows offered from the palette. 

It contains:
9 Eye Shadows;
Heaven (Cream Matte)
Velvet Revolver (Matte Taupe)
 Sexpresso (Matte Deep Brown)
 Silk Teddy (Peach Champagne Shimmer)
Push Up (Light Bronze Shimmer)
Erotica (Soft Charcoal Shimmer)
Nude Beach (Champagne Shimmer with Gold Glitter)
Honey Pot (Gold Shimmer)
Cocoa Puff (Warm Chocolate Brown Shimmer)

Too Faced Natural Eye Shadow Palette Swatches (left to right): Cocoa Puff, Erotica, Sexypresso, Honey Pot, Push Up, Velvet Revolver, Nude Beach, Silk Teddy, Heaven.

3 'How to' Cards; 
DAY look:
Toned down look which can be used during the day. 

It involves using Heaven on the lid, Velvet revolver into the crease and Sexpresso on the lash line and outer V.

This look will create a soft beige matte finish which can look sexy and subtle for daytime. 

This look to me is quite dramatic. I feel it is more suited for a night time look.

It is described to be recreated with Silk Teddy as a base and Push Up on the whole lid which creates a smokey effect on the eye which is further accentuated with Erotica on the crease and lower lashes.

Personally I wouldn't wear this look as I don't like using Silk Teddy as a base. I would probably substitute that with Nude Beach for a 'Night out in town' look.

 FASHION look:
I feel this look can used during the day as it isn't overly smokey however with the shimmer and golds in this look it can also be suited for a chic glam look. 

Recreated with using Nude Beach as base from crease to brow. Pressing in Honey Pot onto the inner lid and tear duct for that 'pop' to the eyes. Blending Cocoa Puff on the Outer V, crease and lower lashes.

The colours used for this look is similar to what I would normally use when I go out for a lunch date or possibly a small dinner with close friends. Not overly glamorous but still nice enough to go out and feel fab. 

My experience with this palette:

  • My favorite colours from this palette are Nude Beach, Honey Pot and Push Up
  • Shimmer eye shadows have good color pay off and strong pigmentation.
  • Can create a great range of looks from day time to night time make up.
  • Good value for money as it offers 9 strong pigmented gorgeous colours that can be used all the time. 

  •  Heaven and Velvet Revolver (the lighter matte shadows) I feel are lacking in colour pay off. 
  • The 'how to' cards are lacking in instruction and colours suggested for the looks I feel don't compliment each other very well.

Overall Rating: 8/10

I really like this palette and can see myself reaching for this one during the Summer holidays to create that natural beachy sun kissed look. What I really love about it is how I can just grab this palette and be confident that I will be well equipped for whatever occasion that pops up.
Two points were taken off due to the ashy and dusty colour payoff from Velvet Revolver and Heaven.
