Neutral Spring Glam: Ft. Too Faced Natural Love Palette

Neutral Spring Glam: Ft. Too Faced Natural Love Palette

I have been putting the Too Faced Natural Love Palette to the test over the past week. I thought i’d share a review and a look with you all. If you scroll down in the post, I also show the other products that I used for this look. I created this neutral spring glam look and I love how it turned out.

The Natural Love palette is a limited edition palette that Too Faced came out with for the spring season. It is available online at Sephora or the Too Faced website. It retails for $69 CAD, $59 USD. Let’s start off by talking about the packaging. It’s an adorable storybook theme. It’s very slim, and has a huge mirror. The only downfall is that it is made out of cardboard, and i’m already finding it to be a bit scuffed up.

2017-03-31_22.55.54It contains 30 beautiful neutral shades. It has a great variety of shades; you can go from daytime to glam very easily. There are some repeat shades from other Too Faced Natural palettes, as well as some brand new never seen before shades. It contains 8 matte shades, and the rest are either shimmers or metallics. You have enough shadows to create an entire eye look with just this palette alone. Even though most swatched beautifully and are super buttery/ pigmented, there were quite a few shades that were big misses in terms of performance.

Poodle (1st picture, 4th swatch): Rough in texture, a bit patchy, lots of fallout

Fairy Tale (2nd picture, 1st swatch): Extremely glittery, lots of fallout. Extremely difficult to get the shadow to stick and stay on the lid even with a wet brush and finger

Kittens & Cutie Patootie (2nd picture, 3rd & 4th swatches): Even though these are super pigmented and buttery, I was unable to get them to show up on the lid, even with a wet brush and finger

Bunny Nose (3rd picture, 3rd swatch): This swatched beautifully which had me super excited to create a pink spring look. However, I went to go use it on the lid and it would not show up and stick to the lid. I tried so hard to make it work because I love the colour, but I was left quite disappointed

Tickle Me (4th Picture, 1st swatch): Rough, extremely glittery, sheer, lots of fallout

Night Fever (6th picture, 4th swatch): Rough texture, no where near as buttery as the others

With this being said, the rest of the shadows are beautiful and work so well! I was impressed with how easy they are to blend and work with. The look shown in this blog post was created using my favourite shades in the palette.

For the look shown above, I used the following shades (Numbers correspond to the blue numbers in the picture):

  1. Heaven: used to set my concealer on my eyelids, as well as a brow bone highlight
  2. Spotlight & Nudie: transition shades
  3. Makeup & Chill: deepened the crease and outer corners
  4. Hot & Bothered: Lid shade (my favourite shade in the entire palette. Its such a beautiful burnt orange)
  5. Stiletto: Deepened the outer corners and buffed into the crease (one of the best matte black shadows that i’ve ever used. close second to Makeup Geek’s corrupt)

So you may be asking yourself if this palette is worth it. I would personally say that if you are looking to create pink looks with this, I would pass because the performance was laking in many of those shades. However, if you are looking to create neutral, brown looks, or smokey eyes this palette is definitely worth it! I hope that you found this review informative and helpful. If you would like to know the other products used on my face in this look, keep on reading.
