Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

12:48 PM

I'll admit that when I first saw pictures of Too Faced's Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette, I wasn't impressed. It just didn't look interesting enough. I was in Ulta a few weeks ago and happened to swatch a few of the shades. I was actually shocked by how smooth and beautiful they were. I've been using it ever since and I love every single look I have done with it so far.

The Shades:

This palette has 30 shades in a variety of finishes, so you can do a lot with this palette.

  1. Heaven is a matte cream, which is a shade I always appreciate in a palette.
  2. Fairy Tale is a glittery light gold. This one is best used with a wet brush. Doing so makes it a lot easier to work worth and the pigment is greatly improved. Otherwise, it is sheer and a bit chunky.
  3. Nudie is a matte fawn that is a nice crease or transition shade depending on your skin tone. The color payoff is a bit sheer, but the intensity can be built up.
  4. Tickle Me is a shimmering taupe. I'm not usually a fan of cooler toned shadows (ironically I don't find them flattering on me), but I do love shades like this one.
  5. Don't Settle is a metallic cool toned brown.
  6. Finger's Crossed is a dark gilded brown.
  7. Lace Teddy is a matte light peachy pink.
  8. Satin Sheets is a golden pink.
  9. Push Up is a bronze with a pearl finish.
  10. Honey Pot is a metallic gold.
  11. Chocolate Martini is a an espresso.
  12. Undercover is a dark purple.
  13. Pink Cheeks is a matte pale pink base with silver shimmer throughout.
  14. Kittens is a rosy pink with a gold shift. Gorgeous color, but I do wish it had more color payoff.
  15. Bunny Nose is a bright pink with a pearl finish.
  16. Moonbeam is a metallic silvery champagne. This is amazing on the inner corner.
  17. Love Bug is an interesting color, and one of my favorites. I would say it is a shimmering cranberry with a hint of silver.
  18. Smokin' is a shimmering pewter that has a slight green look in certain lighting.
  19. Poodle is a shimmery white with a pink shift.
  20. Cutie Patootie is a gorgeous metallic peach.
  21. Dear Diary is a metallic bronze.
  22. Coffee Date is a shimmery warm brown.
  23. Spoiled is a chocolate brown with a pearl finish.
  24. Spotlight is a matte light beige.
  25. Night Fever has a matte dark brown base with gold flecks throughout it. 
  26. Honey Butter is a matte warm brown.
  27. Honeymoon is a shimmery coral with golden flecks throughout.
  28. Hot and Bothered is a gorgeous, intense shimmering copper.
  29. Makeup & Chill is a matte reddish brown.
  30. Stiletto is a matte black.

Overall, the color payoff of the shadows is nice. There are a few shades that are more sheer, but the intensity can be built up pretty easily. The texture of the shades is also nice. Some of them felt a little drier at first, but as you use them and wear away that top layer, they get more soft and buttery. I find the shades to be extremely easy to build up and blend. A more dramatic eye look that is usually very time consuming is fairly quick to do with this palette. And of course an easy, everyday look can be done in a snap. My grandma has been in the hospital for over a week now and this has been my go to every single day. Obviously I don't go all out, but I also want to look put together. This is perfect for that. I'll try to do an FOTD of what I have been doing because I know a lot of people will find that helpful.

The shadows are not patchy and I cannot think of any that are chalky. A few of the shades are a little bit powdery, but it isn't problematic. I haven't experienced any fallout, either.

I always use an eyeshadow primer, so I cannot speak for how these shadows perform without one. That being said, these stay on very well. It gets really hot where I live, so any shadow that stays on even with primer is amazing. I haven't noticed any creasing or fading over the last few weeks. This is by far the best palette Too Faced has done, in my opinion. I like the Peach Palette and their Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette, but I think this one is even better.

The packaging is very slim and lightweight, yet it still feels pretty sturdy. It does have a mirror, but I have never used it. It is kind of awkward to hold the palette as you do your makeup. Too Faced also included some mini-tutorials and look inspiration, which can be helpful.

At $59, this palette certainly isn't cheap. However, considering the quality and how much use I have already gotten out of it, it has been worth the splurge. Plus you are getting thirty eyeshadows that are great for natural and dramatic looks. I highly recommend looking into this palette if you haven't already.
