Too Faced recently launched their new Natural Love palette which is a total lifesaver for everyone that loves natural looks. This palette is filled with every shade that you could possibly need to pull off an easy daytime look to a dark smokey eye. A palette similar to this one was produced in 2009 and the new release has an updated version of everything that you need. The packaging, the size and the arrangement of the shadows in this palette makes it so perfect and girly. It is very reminiscent of classic Too Faced which I am extremely grateful for considering I have been disappointed by some of their newer products. I would also like to point out that I did not purchase this palette myself, I borrowed it from a friend, but after using this a few times I will definitely be adding it to my collection.
Where to Buy:Too Faced
Important Notes: This palette is formulated without parabens and gluten
Packaging: The packaging on this one is big and very girly pink. It has a magnetic closure. The outside looks like classic Too Faced and has velour lettering on the front for added texture.
There are 7 matte shades, 13 shimmery shades and 10 sparkle shades. Some of these shadows are releases from previous palettes, but the big design makes this easy to have everything in one big palette instead of several small ones.

I personally think this palette will work for most people that do natural makeup looks more frequently. You really get a ton of product in this one, so it will likely last you the rest of your life. The price for this one is more than fair if you enjoy most of the shades in this palette. I am most impressed that you can put together so many different looks and it is truly a complete palette. There are enough base, transitions and mattes to build up a look. The amount of glitter and sparkle shades can add depth and give a complex aspect to an eye look. I could see makeup artists being able to use this since it is so versitle and really has everything you need.
There really isn’t much to complain about with this guy. The packaging is very pretty, but not very sturdy. It is possible that it might not be great to travel with. It would also be borderline impossible to drag this guy around to touch up. Since the packaging is light pink with velvet lettering it is prone to getting dirty. There are always some shadows in every palette that fall a little flat, but all of these shadows are workable.
At the end of the day, this is a neutral palette. BUT for a neutral palette this is a great one. I could see a beginner getting a ton of everyday use out of it. I could also see a working artist being able to get a lot of use for this. For the price this is very good quality. I was able to get a lot of different eye looks from this; all of them different. I am very grateful that this reminds me of Too Faced’s roots. Here is a picture of one of the looks I really enjoyed after using this one.
