Finals week is happening, and I’ve probably consumed a months worth of caffeine already. I figured I’d take a moment (and procrastinate) to share a brief review of an oldie but a goodie- the Too Faced Natural Matte Palette!
It took me ages to actually try this (I bought it in November) because I tend to prefer palettes with a mix of shadow types, but this palette has legit become a daily staple for me. It has great all over lid shades, transition shades and crease shades. I bought this at Sephora for $45CAD.
-Amazing combinations of shades, possibilities are endless as they all work well together
-Easy to blend
-Pigmentation is great
-Some shades can be powdery (specifically Strapless, Chocolate Cookie, and Risqué)
-This palette is expensive considering most of the shadows are actually quite small!
-The formula can be inconsistent- not all shades are ‘buttery’ in texture, some are chalky
This palette is worth the investment. I didn’t realize I would use it as much as I really do- every day! I constantly reach for it above other palettes as its perfect for daily looks and of the shades can be built up nicely. The formula is slightly inconsistent, but the colour payoff is what counts for me and this delivers. I’ve created beautiful, natural looks simply from using two shades and building them up.
The shades are all effortlessly pretty, never too harsh. This is the palette you reach for when you want something going on without being like BAM there’s the crease! You can definitely use this for nighttime looks however. Strapless and Chocolate Cookie, despite being a bit powder, are fabulous shades for night. Sexpresso is a fabulous neutral create shade that works with everything, Honey Butter is my go to ride or die transition shade, Heaven is perfect for the brown bone, and Nudie is a fabulous all over lid or create shade. Love love love!!!
