Review: Too Faced Naked Eye Palette

By  |  4 Comments

To say that I am head over heels for Too Faced eyeshadow is an understatement… I am borderline OBSESSED with their eye products!

Before my makeup obsession took over my life I had heard all these wonderful things about Too Faced Shadow Insurance and just sort of dismissed them because I was naive and figured “and eye primer is an eye primer”.

Um, wrong.

So, my local store finally started to stock Too Faced products and I figured that it was the perfect time to try this so called “Holy Grail Eye Primer” that so many people raved about.  I picked up a tube of Shadow Insurance and when I used it for the first time my world was ROCKED.

No, really.  It was like an earthquake over here.

My shadow lasted all day and didn’t crease!!  Talk about life changing!  So because I now understood why everyone loved this primer it made me wonder what other Too Faced products would change my world… Little did I know that it would turn into an all out, can’t stop buying, obsession.

Well, I picked up this little gem known as the Too Faced Naked Eye Palette and, while I don’t think I could ever pick a favorite…. this one is certainly up there on my list.

Upon first glance it seems like these colors may be a bit too light but I can promise you that they are incredibly pigmented and fabulous.  My favorite part about this palette is that, while neutral, it contains a gorgeous black called Stiletto so you can literally take this palette from day into night with no issues (I also love that the names are so thoughtfully created. Hilarious!)  I actually choose this palette over any others when I go on vacation because it creates great daytime looks and then can be transitioned into evening use thanks to the black I mentioned earlier.

From Left to Right: In The Buff, Birthday Suit, Pink Cheeks
From Left to Right: Pillow Talk, Satin Sheets, Lap Dance
From Left to Right: Like A Virgin, Unmentionables, Stiletto

My favorite color combinations to use for daytime are Birthday Suit all over the lid with Like a Virgin in the crease with a bit of Stiletto and my for evening, smokey looks I like to use Satin Sheets on the lid, Stiletto in the crease, and a little bit of In The Buff as a highlight.  While I definitely have my favorite color combinations I really love the fact that Too Faced includes little instructional cards with each of their palettes because it shows me some color combinations that I may not have considered before.

So what about you guys?  Have you discovered a single product that developed into a full fledged obsession?   Comment and share your obsessions with me!
Until next time :)
