I’ve had the new (updated) Too Faced Natural Eyes Shadow Palette for a while now, so it is a bit embarrassing how long it has taken me to write about it and post swatch pictures. I could claim that I’ve been meaning to take pictures when I’ve used the shadows, but mostly I’ve just been happily using it and thinking that probably all of my readers have already purchased it. If you haven’t bought this palette yet, you should. Even if you already have the old version (here’s my review of the old Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette).
Here you can see the old and new side by side. The first big difference is the packaging. I much prefer the newer palette. It isn’t as deep (in the old, the extra depth was a drawer with useless brushes), and instead of being cardboard it is metal. This makes the palette much easier to travel with! As well, 3 of the shades have been replaced with completely new shades, and I think those new shades make repurchasing definitely worth it. The collection is now more wearable for every day, especially with the swapping out between Nude Beach (a pretty pink, but too glittery and powdery for every day) to the more neutral Nudie.
Too Faced has laid things out in trios, but obviously you can can mix and match as you want. As well, I love that the shades you’re more likely to use frequently are larger, it’s great to know you won’t run out of the basic colors well before hitting pan on the more “fun” shades! My favorite look is Nudie over my entire lid, Honey Pot on the outer half of the lid and then Push Up or Erotica (depending on how dramatic I’m feeling) in my crease. I’ll also use the crease color on my smudge brush when I smudge a little liner into my lash line. It’s a slightly smoky look that still completely appropriate for work!
