Too Faced Naked Eye Palette Review & Swatches


I think of the Too Faced Naked Palette as "The Other Naked Palette", coz my first choice was always the out-of-reach Urban Decay Naked Palette, Of course I was attracted to this one too, coz the packaging is more girly, younger-looking & prettier- in my pink-toned opinion. Come to think of it, isn't the "other woman" also younger & prettier, in most cases? Not talking about Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. No no. Hmm.... maybe she doesn't always look younger & prettier. Feel better? Because, I do! =D

Back to topic now. This palette has been my No.1 favorite/most used product for the last 2 months or so. It is amazing! I think I'm going to hit pan on at least 2-3 shades soon-ish. 


The quality of the eyeshadows is top notch. Apart from being super smooth & pigmented, they are all easily wearable shades.

Tucked in the flap are cards showing 3 different looks that you can create with the palette- Day, Classic & Fashion.

Pull-out drawer houses a dual-ended brush: a sponge tip applicator & an angled liner brush

  • In The Buff ~ Matte white 
  • Birthday Suit ~ Shimmery golden brown
  • Pink Cheeks ~ Shimmery pale pink
  • Pillow Talk ~ Light taupe with shimmer
  • Like A Virgin ~ Matte taupe
  • Satin Sheets ~ Pink/gold duochrome 
  • Unmentionables ~ Metallic grey
  • Lap Dance ~ Shimmery taupey brown
  • Stiletto ~ Matte black. 
Everyday favorites: In The Buff on brow bone, Pillow Talk on lid, Like A Virgin on crease & lower lash line, Stiletto as liner.

These swatches (taken on a very gloomy day & I admit, sloppy application) do not do justice to how amazing these eyeshadows look.


One con: Cardboard palette is hard to clean when it gets dirty. I'm trying very hard not smudge the eyeshadows outside the pans. I wish it was laminated & glossy.

Price ~ $36.00. I'm pretty sure I bought it for more than that from Sephora, KL.

Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥ 4.5/5


Availability ~ Not available in India. You can purchase it online from asos.com or apothica.com (Just info. I have never ordered from them.)

  6. I have hesitated a looooonh time between this one and the Natural Eye Palette, and I ended up by getting the Natural one... I don't know, the shades of the Naked Eye Palette just seem too matte for me ):

  11. I really think this would be better than the UD Naked Palette. The Naked Palette had too many shimmery shades, which is just not the best for me.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
