Too Faced Fall Collection 2009: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette Review and Swatches

Last year I fell in love with the Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette and this year isn’t any different with the introduction of the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette, incredible, truly a fabulous palette and a killer deal!


Jump ahead for some raving!

I’ve been known to hate all over a natural, nude eye look but my tastes have evolved since I started this little site and with those changes came the revelation that I do enjoy a natural eye look. With a total of nine shades, three tutorials, and a brush, all packaged together, Too Faced Natural Eye Palette arms you with just about everything you’ll need to create three natural, nude looks or any number of looks using the nine shades. This style palette is ideal for anyone who either loves neutrals or isn’t so handy with eye shadow application. It’s ease of use and nifty little tutorial cards make it’s a snap to create a flawless eye look sans drama.


The palette is a sweet flip top box with full size mirror and pull out draw with one dual applicator that includes a sponge on one side and a liner brush on the other. As per my rant last year I will say that I hate they don’t include at least three sponges with the kit as it would be great to use one brush per shadow look. The kit also includes a sleeve which houses three little business card size tutorials with three simple steps for creating a Day, Fashion, and Classic Eye look. The instructions are simple and easy to understand and for the most part one sentence tells you what to do. Believe me if I can follow the instructions you’ll be able to without any problem. The instructions make it very easy to create dramatic neutral looks that are beautifully flattering for Fall.


The shades in the palette are as follows:

Day Look
Heaven (Matte Cream)
Velvet Revolvor (Matte Nude)
Sexpresso (Matte Brown

022 400x300

032 400x300


To create the Day Look you simply sweet Heaven all over the line and blend Velvet Revolver into the crease to contrast. Finish the look by blending Sexpresso on the upper and lower lash line for a smudged out liner effect. The results of the completed look are a work friendly subtle neutral eye look.

Fashion Look
Nude Beach (Shimmering Beige Peach)
Honey Pot (Coppery Bronze)
Cocoa Puff (Shimmering Golden Brown)

044 400x300

039 400x300


When compared to Day, Fashion Look is considerably more dramatic. To create the look you’ll be using nude Beach as a high brow highlighter and blended into the crease. Follow up with Honey Pot patted on the inner lid and around the tear duct and complete with Cocoa Puff blended on the out lid, crease, and upper and lower lash lines. Although completely work friendly, Fashion Look manages to have the drama of a night time look as well!

Classic Look
Silk Teddy (Nude Shimmering Peach)
Push-Up (Light Shimmering Brown)
Erotica (Grayish Brown with Golden Sparkle)

014 400x300

011 400x300

066 400x300


The Classic Look is probably the most dramatic of all the looks with a blend of bronze and brown to create a very smoky, nude look. To achieve the look you’ll blend Silky Teddy from crease to brow and gently press Push Up onto the lid. Follow up by smudging Erotica on crease and lower lashes.

All three looks are very pretty and flattering on my brown eyes. It’s fun following the card step by step but nothing is stopping you from using the shades individually or combined to create any number of looks. Nine shadows is alot of color so I’m sure you can let your imagination run wild to create some other interesting looks. All the shadows in the palette are brilliantly pigmented and rich in texture. Finishes range from shimmery, matte, to velvet and blend like a dream.

Overall, the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette is an absolute steal at $34 and a Fall must have for creating natural or dramatic eye popping looks. I really love this one and I’m deeply impressed. Quite a great little palette for not only makeup amateurs and beginners but also those who are well versed in makeup application.

A gem!

Loves it!

    Okay – I’m freakin out – the more I see this palette the more I want it – the only reason I didn’t get it, is because I bought Too Faced Naughty or Nice Palette and NEVER use it.

    But every time I’m in Ulta I toss on this stuff – and I’m in love with the texture of Heaven. It’s Heaven!

    I’ll be waiting around for my 20% coupon somewhere – whether too face, Ulta or Sephora…

    waiting waiting waiting

    i’m torn between these two palettes!!! i can’t afford to buy both right now.
    i usually wear either no eyeshadow at all or smoky eye for a night out.
    i don’t have a whole lot of eyeshadows but the last few shades i bought are pretty dark so now i wanna try something softer for a sweet but sophisticated look.
    which one do you think is more of a must-have/ can’t be found in other brands/cheaper (my skin is nc30)
    ps. where i live is impossible to get Urban Decay’s Naked Palette and i don’t wanna pay extra on ebay :'(

    • 5/17/11 10:49 the Muse:

      hi amy. really depends on what look you are going for hun as the palettes create two very different looks. If you prefer smoky, sultry go with the smoky if you prefer nudes/natural goes with the natural one :)

    Hi Muse!

    I already have the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Do you think this Too Faced kit is worth purchasing as well? Thanks!
