Finally got around to swatching this beauty. This is the repackaged version of the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette. I have had this for quite a long time and it is well loved only for a short period of time and then I forgot about this palette! Now that I have rediscovered this, I will be playing around with this more often!

This is a very compact and travel friendly palette and of course, it comes with a mirror. I like how Too Faced always made the blending and highlighting shades larger that the regular lid shades.


I honestly felt like I was wasting all the product when I did the swatches and should have used those shades to do an eye look or something so that they didn't go to waste! :(



Heaven is a matte yellowish shade for highlighting / setting the lids.

Cashmere Bunny is a neutral matte brown blending shade.

Sexspresso is a dark matte brown. Doubles up as a liner or smoking out the look.

Silk Teddy is a shimmery pink champagne shade that can work as an inner corner highlight or all over the lid colour.

Push-Up is a cool tone rusty copper brown (more brown than red) *my favourite.

Erotica is a cool tone brown with gold flecks.

Nudie is a matte light brown crease shade.

Honey Pot is a metallic gold. Very similar to Urban Decay's Half Baked, but I do prefer Honey Pot!

Chocolate Martini is a dark warm brown and lots of gold flecks. Very rich and sexy colour.

With flash


The overall quality of this palette is top notch! The shadows are so creamy and pigmented. I highly recommend this, especially if you are someone looking to get their first higher-end palette. I would totally recommend this one, and also the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette - that is another one of my all time favourites, click on the link for my review!

I have to say that I have been neglecting all my Naked Palettes and focusing on the others because after trying so many other brands, UD shadows aren't THAT great. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy their palettes but I really don't reach for it as often and I would gladly trade my Naked 3 for the Chocolate Bon Bons that just came out. Some of the shades has very poor colour payoff and to be honest the palettes might not be worth the $$. I would rather spend the money on Too Faced, Zoeva, Lorac, Makeup Geek or even other drugstore options. Although I love warmer tones, I really don't see my Original Naked Palette Palette to be a worthy buy :( this is very sad because I debated so long on whether I should get it as I already own the Naked 2. I have to say, aside from only a couple of shades in Naked 1, I still like my Naked 2 better - one most important reason is being most of the shades are just of better quality and is more pigmented. I am not going to spend S$83 on a palette where some of the shades are still of poor quality.

  2. I just found your blog and I absolutely love it! I wanted to ask, overall, which eyeshadow palette do you recommend the most, the Too Faced Chocolate Bar or the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette? I wanted to invest in some good eyeshadows, as I haven't experimented with eyeshadow a whole lot. I have a medium-tan skintone, and I wasn't sure which one might look best! I've heard great things about the chocolate bar, but some of the shades are quite 'out there' but would overall be better value.

    Also, what are your thoughts on the Too Faced Born this Way Foundation vs the Nars Sheer Glow? I have quite dry skin, so I was leaning towards the Nars Sheer Glow, but honestly the price + the packaging faults with no pump really throws me off. I thought the Too Faced one would be a better option since it's cheaper, has a pump and has good reviews, but I'm afraid it won't work all that well with my drier skin.

    Also, just wanted to say that I absolutely love the aesthetics of your blog and how you do all your swatches! They're really impressive!

    1. Hi Jess, Sorry for getting back to you so late! I have been really busy. Thanks for showing me so much love :)

      I would think Chocolate Bar is a better palette. It has a better mix of warm and neutrals. Although it has some 'out there' shades which I rarely use myself, I still love that palette a lot! However if you are only looking for a simple day to day palette with earthy tones, the Natural Eyes palette will be better for that. Side note, you should consider Zoeva's Cocoa Blend. It's one of my all time favourites!

      I have a combination skin so I personally prefer Sheer Glow as I have received multiple compliments on my skin while wearing that foundation. Born This Way is quite tricky - I love it most of the time but it can tend to break up on my skin pretty fast if I am having some skin issues. It's more of a 'perfect skin' foundation for me. For a better investment, I recommend Sheer Glow! It has never failed me so far. But we do have different skin types. Why not ask for a sample? :)

      Hope this helped and not confuse you further hahaha! xoxo
