Review & Swatches! Too Faced Natural at Night Palette

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Hey everybody! Yesterday I was on the bus and was contemplating what should I blog about next. Then I thought, why not share with you guys something that I have been loving the past few days? And it is this Too Faced palette.



Too Faced has a range of such palettes available (such as Natural Eye, Romantic Eyes etc) but I chose this as I am not a fan of super neutral "no makeup" makeup. I wanted a neutral palette but with some jazz (do you feel me?). 




Packaging
I love the packaging of this! It is so pretty. Comes in a sturdy cardboard packaging (like a lot of the Too Faced packaging) and opens up kinda like a jewelry box. It comes with 9 eyeshadows, mostly warm-toned neutrals. This also comes with 3 cards - showing you how to apply the eyeshadows. Cool stuff. 

Formula and Pigmentation 
These eyeshadows are slightly powdery so when you dip your brush in, there is slight crumbling. However, I do not experience any major fall out with these upon application. 

Lasting Power
These shadows last a good 7 hours on me without any fading or creasing! I do use them over my MAC paintpot though, but I do love how the colours of the shadows stay true to when I first applied them. 

Colour selection
Obviously, this is a neutral palette so I was not expecting any va-va-voom shades here. I am loving Moon Stone (sumptuous olive greenish gold) and Eclipse (deep burgundy bronze) though - they are not crazy out there kinda shades, but they are gorgeous and excellent for adding some depth and definition to your eye looks. All shades do have shimmer when in the pan but I do find that Spotlight, Nightcap and Cocoa Star appear matte when applied. Nightlight and Night Fever do have noticeable chunks of glitter. The rest of the shadows are shimmery. 

The shadows are arranged in three rows (Night, Classic, Fashion) such that one row provides you with an eye look (and the cards will guide you in doing so).  Sometimes when I am in a rush, I do follow the cards. However, usually I don't. I love to change things up and try different colour combinations!  My favourite for this palette: 
Lid: Full Moon
Crease: Cocoa Star
Outer V: Moon Stone (and usually I will add a little of Night Fever to further deepen the look)
Brow bone highlight: Spotlight 

Here are the cards as well as the swatches:

Night 

Left to Right : Full Moon, Nightcap, Cocoa Star

 Fashion

Overall, I recommend this palette for those neutral lovers out there. Great colour combinations that would work for looks that can be worn in the day or night.

Rating : 4/5

Have a great makeup day everybody! XO.
