It seems like in 2014 Too Faced got some real attention from some of the bigger beauty bloggers. It’s not a brand that I find is easily available in the U.K, I’ve only ever really seen it in a few of the larger Boots stores. So I decided to invest in one of their eye-shadow palettes – behold Too Faced Natural at Night. This is the perfect set of colours for someone who is an eye-shadow amateur. 9 neutral shades that are separated for different occasions -but that never really means much to me.
A collection of ‘neutral’ tones whilst remaining on the shimmery side, so if you’re light hearted and don’t like a bit of glitz then this is probably not for you. There’s two matte shades, which is a highlight and a mid-tone brown which I guess is designed to be some sort of transitional colour.
After playing around with it for a month or so the bottom row is my personal favourite. Mainly because I’ve always found a dark smoky eye very over-powering which means that i usually I opt for dark browns. However the shade Night Fever has a mixture of gold/green tones which may seem over the top in the palette but when worn it gives a lovely green/golden sheen. It’s also a stunning shade on the bottom lash line which makes brown eyes pop. With only two matte shades it’s definitely a ‘in your face’ kinda palette. I always find that with eyeshadow palettes you end up compromising for a few dud colours that you will never wear, Natural at Night provides colours where each one is wearable. The shadows are quite heavily pigmented so you need the lightest hand with them. I learnt the hard way. Now in shape or form am I an eyeshadow expert but there are two brushes that I’m loving at the moment and they the MAC 217 and MAC 239. MAC eye brushes – so amazing! I’ve heard a lot about the Too Faced, Better than sex mascara. What do companies think when they’re naming their products? I do wonder.
The Too Faced Natural at Night palette is my favourite eye-shadow palette at the moment and for £29, it’s not the cheapest out there but the quality and quantity is truly amazing and worth the money in my opinion. Side note, I did go to Inglot yesterday and the eye-shadows looked/felt dreamy! Have you tried Inglot products before…?
