REVIEW: Too Faced Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eyeshadow Collection

Hey Guys!
This is one of the gifts I got for my birthday last week. The only product I've ever tried from Too Faced Cosmetics is their Shadow Insurance, which I love. Too Faced also has a few other eyeshadow palettes to choose from, such as the "Neutral Palette", "Romantic Palette", and "Smokey Eye Palette". I wanted the "Naked" Palette because the colours appealed to me more than the others. Though it is called "Naked", it has much different colours than Urban Decay's Naked Palette, which I also own and have reviewed here.

"Looking like you rolled out of bed flawless and fabulous is a celebrity secret and one that careers have been built on! Now, you too can look like you were "born perfect" with my Naked Eye kit. Sheer matte shadows and soft shimmers offer the perfect balance and variety for every skin tone. This palette of naturally nude shadows will have you looking super neutral yet drop dead gorgeous for any occasion. Nobody needs to know you didn't wake up that way."
- Jerrod Blandino, Too Faced Founder

A shelf slides out at the bottom to reveal and applicator. I never use applicators that come with products as I much prefer my own brushes, so I can't tell you how good this tool works, but I'll try it out and update this post later.

Three cards come with the palette which are tools to help you recreate three different looks: Day, Classic, and Fashion. I have yet to recreate one of the looks, but I will post an FOTD on at least one of the cards and let you know how helpful I find them.

The eyeshadows are very soft and pigmented. As far as matte black shadows go, Stiletto could be a little bit more pigmented, but can be built up to a nice dark black. I've been using Stiletto to set my eyeshadow instead of MAC Carbon and I find it much darker. My favourite eyeshadow is "Birthday Suit" and I actually ended up wearing it to my birthday dinner with friends last night!

  10. I swatched this palette while I was at a Sephora recently, and I was so impressed with how soft and velvety they are! Seems like blending could be super easy with these!
    Also, I was always curious what makeup diagrams look like on a real face, so I'd be interested in seeing you do those recreations!
