too faced natural eye palette♥

I purchased this Too faced neutral eye palette about a year ago - which I'm sure you can probably tell by the state of it.
I had been admiring it for ages, and as too faced was 3 for 2 in boots at the time, I went for it.

It's a really small, cute looking palette and is great for travelling as it includes three rows of eyeshadows, separated into three looks; day, classic and fashion. It also includes three handy cards which give you step by step instructions on how to create each eye look included.
'Day' has three matte shades which are okay, but nothing special. I use heaven quite often if I'm pushed for time, swept across the eyelid with gel eyeliner and mascara, it works great. It's an creamy/ivory colour, really pigmented and one of my favourites from this palette. Velvet revolver is a taupe shade and abit blah to be honest, I don't reach for this very often as its not very pigmented either. Sexspresso is a deep brown, it has great pigment to it and I enjoy using this through the crease.

'Classic' has three shimmery eyeshadows and is my most used row. Silk teddy is my favourite eyeshadow out of the entire palette. It's a perfect peachy colour, which I love all over the lid, and around the tear ducts, its so brightening and makes you look awake, if your really not feeling it. I have had quite a few people ask what eyeshadow I had on when I was wearing this too! Push-up is lovely, and is also one of my favourites. It's a lovely bronze shade, nicely pigmented and really compliments my green eyes. Erotica is a medium brown with gold/green shimmer to it, it's pretty and very pigmented, but I must admit I rarely reach for it.
'Fashion' has some nice shadows, but for me nude beach ruins it. Its pretty to look at as its basically the same as silk teddy, but with huge, chunky glitter that sticks everywhere apart from your eyelids. Honey Pot is pretty, it's a gold and nicely pigmented, but I think this is quite similar to urban decay - half baked, which I must have ten times over in my urban decay palettes. For that reason I rarely reach for it. Cocoa puff is a lovely rich brown with very fine gold shimmers, which are hardly noticeable once applied. It is nicely pigmented also - definitely need to use this more often.
 Its quite pricey at £23.50, but as it was 3 for 2 it didn't feel too bad purchasing it, as I got an item free!
Overall I have mixed opinions on this palette, some of the eyeshadow's are gorgeous and one in particular is rubbish - looking at you nude beach! That being said I do think it is a great palette for beginners or people who travel alot. If I were to choose between this and the Urban decay 'naked' palette which this has been compared to, I would choose the naked palette, no competition.

Have you got this palette? What do you think of it?

Thankyou for reading

  4. I nearly bought this when I went to NY. I was more tempted by the Romantic palette though. Saying that I didn't buy either cuz I'm waiting for the Urban Decay Naked Palette to reappear.. which is probably never!
    I really like Push up and Honey Pot from this one though!

  6. I've seen this in some stores, but never swatched it. I like Too Faced shadows, but I know what you mean, a lot of their shadows have a lot of glitter.
