Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette VS. Too Faced Natural Matte Palette

Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette VS. Too Faced Natural Matte Palette

As we all know, Too Faced makes some of the most aesthetically-pleasing eyeshadow palettes known to mankind (oh and they also smell great too).

I fell head-over-heels for the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette and the Too Faced Natural Matte Palette...and I bought both. I know, I know, I’m such a glutton for cute packages. But the real question is, did I waste my money? Are they too similar, or are they worth the separate purchases?

Let's discuss.

The Natural Eye Palette has nine beautiful, subtle shades. They're all shimmery and the point is that you're supposed to be able to create a quick, easy look by just using the three in a row.

These shades are really pretty and very versatile. I find them easy to work with and play up or down, depending on the occasion. They look good on all skin tones.

The Natural Matte Palette has—surprise, surprise—nine completely matte shades. But the catch is that the big three are the same shades as the ones given in Natural Eyes! They're just matte instead of shimmer! The other six shades are slight deviations of Natural Eyes, except they are matte. They're all lovely and versatile as well.

 

Overall, the pigmentation, color pay off and general quality of both palettes are solid. But I don't think it's necessary at all to have both palettes actually. You just have to decide if you're more of a shimmer person, or a matte person. I personally would choose shimmer over matte in a heartbeat; I think shimmer is beautiful and I like the little extra glitz in the humdrum of daily life.

That said, I have yet to find another really good matte palette. So, if you're looking for a nice, day-to-day matte eyeshadow palette, this is the one. 

I'm not the only one ooh-ing and aww-ing over Too Faced's eyeshadow palettes; check out Sylvia's review from way back when.
