Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection



During Sephora's Chic Week last month, I picked up the Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection palette. As I mentioned in the post, it's something I've looked at for a long time and had never purchased. It's $36 for 9 shadows, which isn't bad at all. There's enough variety to achieve plenty of every day looks, and even slightly more dramatic ones if you choose, so it's a good balance of colors. So why am I not that excited about it? Well, like I mentioned in my original post, I don't like the packaging. I don't like bulky, cardboard packaging. I want something sleek and simple. And the bottom line? I'm spoiled having both Urban Decay Naked palettes. I'll just say it - they're better and are more versatile. (And I like the packaging. What can I say? I'm a sucker for it.) 

It is a good palette though, don't get me wrong. This was the only eye shadow palette I took on our last vacation, and I wasn't wishing I had more colors to choose from. It is great for every day looks (and travel, obviously, since I used it for that). There are just better options out there, so if you're just looking for one, I'd probably get something else.

What's your go to every day eye makeup look?

We have to meet so you can give me an eye shadow tutorial. I went to mac once and scared the crap out of all the drag queens on the way out. Not a good look.

Aww poo, too bad it didn't live up to your expectations!! I don't like bulky packaging either, makes me not use things...maybe that's why I'm so Chanel obsessed...
My go to makeup is Chanel Spices the 4 pack eye shadow...one colors on the lid, a lighter one above and then a small line of dark right on the bottom :D

I hate bulky make up packaging. I still want those UD ones I think.

I was never thrilled with the Two Faced packaging either - it's way too bulky.

You are my eye shadow go to person. I am pretty clueless about different brands though I got my friend the Laura Mercier palette!
p.s. Good packaging totally makes a difference!

I just use Benefit face cream, light pink lipstick and mascara. So easy, but natural looking!

These colors are so neutral and pretty, but I have to say I'd rather save up for the Naked palettes -- so pretty.
