Swatches: Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette

Some of you may remember an earlier incarnation of the Too Faced Natural Eyes kit - Sarah wrote about it in 2010 and judged it almost a Naked-killer.  Well, it's been rethought, had a few colours changed around, and will be re-released as part of the Too Faced Spring collection.  I've got the new palette to show you today.

The palette contains twelve shades of eyeshadow, forming three colour combinations - Day, which is a subtle combination of matte shades; Classic, which is made up of shimmering tones of pinky beige and brown; and Fashion, which mixes matte, metal, and shimmer finishes in tones of brown and gold.

Day:  Heaven, Cashmere Bunny, Sexpresso
Classic:  Silk Teddy, Push Up, Erotica

Fashion: Nudie, Honey Pot, Chocolate Martini
As with all Too Faced palettes, you get a little look-book showing you how to use the shadows to create daytime, classic and fashion looks. But really, you don't need to be shown how to use these shades - they're all universally flattering, easy to apply, and very, very blendable.  I recently travelled to the US for a week for work, and this was the only eyeshadow palette I took with me - I got five days worth of looks from super natural to very smoky indeed from it.

I particularly like that the base shades have larger pans than the lid/liner shades.  Silk Teddy and Nudie are both perfect all-over-the-lid shades, and Heaven works well as a highlight as well as a base shade - having more of these shades makes perfect sense.

At £32, this isn't a particularly cheap palette - the Naked range have 3 more eyeshadows for £7 more - but it's very versatile, and the tin packaging is durable enough to be lugged around with you safely.  If you're looking for a more portable, just-as-adaptable alternative to Naked, Too Faced's Natural Eyes palette is well worth a look.  Find it soon at Debenhams.
