Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette | Love, Catherine

Too Faced recently killed off the eyeshadow game for every other brand with their gorgeous new Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette, aka. the mother of all neutral palettes. The floral packaging with the little bunnies and birds is so romantic and beautiful, and the names of the shades are so flippin' cute I just can't deal. Bunny Nose, Kittens, Pink Cheeks, Fairy Tale, umm sorry but you can't tell me that isn't all kinds of adorable. 'Cos it is.

The colour range is a dreamy selection of soft pinks, milky browns and golden bronzes and is what initially enticed me to spend a pretty penny. I'd use every single shade at some point, it's a neutral lovers dream! If you are a Too Faced fan you may already spot some of the shades from previous palettes. HeavenNudiePush-UpHoney Pot and Chocolate Martini can all be found in the Natural Eyes palette (which you can see in this post) ! If you like the look of the Natural Love palette but don't want to commit to the splurge, this one would be a great alternative, it's a beautiful little palette and was one of my first makeup loves. Satin Sheets can also be found in both the Boudoir Eyes palette and the Chocolate Bon Bons (review here). So although there are a few repeats, the vast majority of the shades are new.

Eight of the thirty shades are matte and I was surprisingly super impressed with every single one. It's so nice to see a palette with really pigmented, creamy matte shades as more often than not it can be the matte shades that let a palette down, but not here, I cannot fault the quality of them! I've included Pink Cheeks as a matte shade, although it does have a very subtle shimmer running through it. My favourite matte shades are Honey Butter which is a gorgeous warm caramel brown, perfect as a transition, and Makeup & Chill which is a lovely deep chocolate brown.

The stand out shimmer shades for me are:
♥ Moonbeam; a beautiful pale silvery gold
♥ Cutie Patootie; a rosey golden peach
♥ Kittens; a cool toned lilac pink with a gold reflex
♥ Satin Sheets; a champage rose gold 
♥ Push-Up; a gorgeous bronze
♥ Honey Pot; a perfect gold
♥ Love Bug; a purple taupe
♥ Coffee Date; a warm coppery bronze
♥ Dear Diary; a frosty golden bronze
All have that great 'one swipe' pigmentation and look so shimmery and beautiful!

The shades I did find to be iffy were Tickle Me, HoneymoonFingers Crossed and especially Fairy Tale. I say this as they have more of a glittery formula, so when applied with a brush the pigmentation is a little lacking and the fall out can be a bit of a nightmare. However I then tried them with MAC Fix + to see if I could get any use out of them and they completely transformed! So if you don't mind wetting your brush to get the most out of your eyeshadows then you will be fine, I actually do this all the time with shimmery eyeshadow shades as it intensifies the pigment and makes them more metallic. Night Fever is a little patchy however, and Stiletto isn't quite the deep intense black you might hope it to be, but it's not too bad once built up.

The palette retails at a pricey £52, but if you were to build a collection of 30 solo eyeshadows and pop them in a palette yourself it would be much more costly. For example, Makeup Geek eyeshadows retail at £6 a shadow, which if you do the math will set you back a massive £180 for 30 of them, and that's without a palette to put them in (see how I like to justify my makeup purchases..haha). 

If you're expecting something a little different from your classic Chocolate Bar, Naked palette etc. then this probably isn't for you. But ultimately if you are a neutral eyeshadow lover like myself, you will adore this palette, forgiving the few dodgy glittery shades.


What do you think of the Natural Love palette?

  1. I love the colours here. I wouldn't really wear the pinks, like Kittens and Bunny Nose, but the rest are so nice. I wouldn't get it though because it's just so many eyeshadows, I would feel overwhelmed! Especially cause I have other eyeshadow palettes with neutral shades lol...

    1. Yes it is quite a lot of shadows isn't it! That's what I love about it though, you would never run out of options :-) Yeah, like I said, if you already have other neutral palettes that you're already happy with then you probably don't need this! xo

  4. Oh my. I absolutely adore Top Faced palettes and this is possibly the cutest one I've seen so far. Love the colour palette and the design is so pretty. I think I reach for Too Faced more often than Urban Decay now...the question is do I really need another palette?

    1. It's adorable isn't it!! The Urban Decay Naked palette was my first eyeshadow love, but then I found Too Faced and never went back haha xo

  5. I went to ulta to play around with this palette! I looked so beautiful on their instagram page, and I was not disappointed at all! It comes with so many beautiful shades. It is a little large, which is understandable, because it comes with so many shades, but I know I would be super nervous traveling with this! Other than that, this palette is beautiful! If I end up having any splurge money, this might be one of the things I end up getting my hands on! Great review xxx

    1. To be fair it is a super slim palette, so it really isn't as large as some people may think! xo

  7. Honeymoon is an absolute babe! I rather like all of the warm tones.

    It's such a beautiful palette! Even the packaging is so pretty and quite understated for Too Faced.

    I've only just used my first Too Faced eye shadows and the formula is lovely but I don't use shimmers so I can't justify buying yet another palette. I wish they sold individuals though.

    1. Ohh this is definitely not the palette for you if you don't like shimmer shades as there 22 of them! Haha. Naked Basics will be your bestie, if you don't have it already xo

  8. This is such a huge eyeshadow palette! That's my only problem with it. Otherwise the shadows are beautiful and so pigmented. My favorite shade has to be Cutie Patootie. I mean how could I not? (:

  11. I absolutely love the look of this palette now I have seen the swatches. Even with it being on the neutral side, it looks like you get an absolutely fabulous selection of shades.

    1. Yeah I agree, for the entire palette to be neutrals it's got an amazing selection! Maybe wish there was a few more mauve shades though.. xo

  12. Wow this palette is just gorgeous!! I'm definitely a neutral coloured girl when it comes to eyeshadows so this is perfect. A little over my current budget but I definitely think I'll use your little justification for myself! :)
