Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette | Review and SwatchesSaturday, March 5, 2016
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.

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.
