Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette

I think it's quite obvious to say that Too Faced are no exception when it comes to creating beautiful and flawless eyeshadow palettes so when I saw their natural eyes palette I couldn't resist picking it up.
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette
As I was browsing through the variety of palettes they have to offer this one stood out to me most due to the neutral colour range running throughout the palette. Not only are the colours wearable, but, the palette itself is a cult favourite by all as it has won various awards including the 2014 Brides Magazine and The Best Palette To Wear On Your Big Day award!
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette Packaging
Packaging&Design
When it comes to the packaging I feel that is one of the only faults of this palette. I'm not one for bulky packaging, even though this is a small palette it is still on the chunky side of things, it is a trouble to store and I feel it is kind of unnecessary in the grand scheme of things. Maybe it's the tin packaging which isn't doing it for me I don't know. However, the design is very sophisticated and pretty, the lace detailing alongside the gold accents stand out on the magnetic tin.

As you open up the palette you are greeted by a little booklet full of step by step instructions as to how you can create some beautiful eye looks by just using this palette alone. Although I don't tend to take much notice to the booklet, for many this could be an informative tool to help them with their makeup skills. Behind the booklet is an essential for those who find themselves travelling with their makeup, a mirror, a handy implement even if it is on the minute side.

Shadows Themselves
Included in the palette are nine eye shadows, featuring a variety of mattes and shimmery shades which range from pinks to beautiful bronzes there is a neutral for everyone. For me, there are shadows in this palette which I won't reach for, but others I use non-stop for nearly all of my eye looks. The shadows all work wonderfully in conjunction with each other, a bone colour for the base, a brown matte for the crease, shimmer for the lid and a deeper matte shade for the outer v; what more could you ask for?
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette Shade Range
Heaven-A pretty boring shade but a must have nonetheless, a silky matte bone white.
Cashmere Bunny-A deeper version of Nudie
Sexspresso-Deep and dark brown, bordering on black
Silk Teddy-Slightly cool-toned shimmery pink
Push-Up-Gorgeous rose gold shimmery copper
Erotica-Dark cool brown with chunky gold glitter specs
Nudie-Perfect transition shade, brown with neutral undertones
Honey Pot-Beautiful gold with shimmer running throughout
Chocolate Martini-Deep warm brown with chunky gold glitter
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette Swatches
I have to say that the shades once swatched and used on the eyes can be a bit hit and miss which pains me to say that as I adore all of the colours within this palette.The shadows which blend seamlessly and have the best colour payoff are Heaven, Silk Teddy, Nudie, Cashmere Bunny, Push-Up and Honey Pot. Sexspresso, Erotica and Chocolate Martini are very disappointing in regards to texture and pigmentation, they are not up to standard with the rest, they feel harsh and chalky on the eyes which can be painful, whilst the pigmentation is very patchy.

Overall Thoughts
Now don't get me wrong, I do love using the palette but there are a few dud shades within the palette which can be a waste when they do look useful and pretty in the pan. For £32.00 this Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette isn't worth that amount of money, in my opinion, if you can get it with an offer then I'd say snatch it up as it is a great palette to have in your collection due to the good shades which are in there.

Have you got this palette and what do you think of it? Is it a cult favourite within the beauty industry? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
