I am so excited to finally get this review up for you guys! When I saw that first picture of the Natural Love palette on Too Faced’s Instagram, I knew I had to have it. Once I found out the price, I was a bit more hesitant, but I decided to take the plunge. I don’t own that many high end makeup products, and every shade in this gorgeous palette is a shade I will wear. I can’t say that for a lot of palette’s, which made $60 for thirty high quality shadows seem worth it to me.
The palette came out on the March 9, and a week later it was finally shipped out and on its way to my house. I stalked the tracking information like it was my job. When I came home from work one day I felt betrayed when I saw that the package on the doorstep wasn’t for me; I wanted the palette in my hands as soon as possible! Add in a literal blizzard in the middle of March and it seemed like the Natural Love palette and I weren’t going to meet any time soon. Finally the palette made it’s way to my front porch and I ripped into the box as fast as I possibly could. When I opened the palette to reveal the eyeshadows I swear I heard the Hallelujah Chorus; the shades look stunning all laid out and the gold packaging just adds a whole other level of beauty.
The packaging is hard cardboard and has a magnet to keep it shut. The front has a gorgeous spring design that’s raised and covered in velvet. Inside the palette you get a large mirror, which is great for traveling! The palette is also thin, so despite it being bigger than a Naked palette or something similar, I still think it’d be easy to pack and take with you on vacation.
The shadows in the Natural Love palette are incredibly pigmented and buttery. They also blend together like a dream, which is perfect for those of us who aren’t that great at applying eyeshadow (raises hand slowly and looks to see if anyone is doing the same thing…). In the palette there are 7 matte shades, 13 shimmer and 10 glitter shades. I think that’s the perfect amount of each! I would have liked to see a matte brown shade in between Nudie and Makeup and Chill though. Nudie is very light and Makeup and Chill is quite dark and has some red undertones to it.
While I love every shade in the palette, I was a bit confused by some of them. Some of the darker shades like Smokin’, Don’t Settle and Fingers Crossed look different in terms of color once they’re applied to the lid or swatched. They’re still gorgeous shadows, they’re just a little misconceiving when in the pan. I was also a little disappointed with the shade Bunny Nose; I thought it would be a bright pink shade as it appears in the pan. Once it’s on the eyelid it’s very pale in comparison, which is a bit sad; I was really drawn to that bright pink!
As far as the glittery shades go, there is a bit of fall out when you first apply them. The best way to combat this is to do your eye makeup before your face makeup so you can easily sweep away the fallout. Once the shadows are on the eyes there shouldn’t be much of an issue concerning fallout throughout the rest of the day.
I’ve used the Natural Love palette every day since I’ve had it, and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. While there are certainly a lot of natural colors in this palette, it’s incredibly diverse. The palette can take you from day to night in no time, with light, natural shades and dark, glittery ones as well. I honestly love this palette, and would recommend it to anyone looking to add a new palette to their collection.
Thanks for reading!
