Too Faced Natural Eye Kit
Advantages: Some beautiful shades that you won't find anywhere else.
Disadvantages: Pricey, but you get what you pay for!
I was given this palette as a gift last year and was almost scared to like it too much because of the price, but since then it really has been one of the staples of my make up collection and I certainly will be purchasing it again when it runs out.
As with all Too Faced products, the packaging is gorgeous. It's a sturdy little box that holds a pull out compartment underneath containing an applicator. Anyone who has travelled with compacts whether it be a long trip or inside a handbag will know the risk of digging it out and realising your products all smashed up. I find this has happened to me a few times (I've dropped a fair few pressed powders during the morning routine when my coffee hasn't quite kicked my clumsy brain into shape!) but rest assured I think the developers of this kit must have had this in mind, I just can't see how you could smash this thing.
The kit itself contains three different suggested looks. I say suggested because I personally only stuck to the rows in the beginning when I was just starting out. For beginners or anyone looking for simple, beautiful looks the kit comes with three cards containing easy-to-follow diagrams of where to put each colour. I've tried all three and I'm a fan of the "Day" and "Classic" look for quickly applying before work or a shopping trip. I won't bore you with a run-down of all the shades, but there's a couple in this collection that I think deserve a special mention because they're something I can't seem to find anywhere else. "Silk Teddy" is one of these, a gentle beige colour, it sits in the middle row and (thank goodness!!) is one of the bigger sections of the palette meant for between the crease and eyebrow. This shade has a beautiful shimmer that really reflects light and will glam up even the most basic look. I use this colour more than any other eye shadow I own (although I may have to start rationing as I'm starting to see the dreaded shiny surface that means it's starting to run low  ). Another colour that is definitely worth a mention is "Erotica". This is a mixture of deep brown and a dark metallic gold/bronze that can create a really sexy dramatic smoky eye if used the right way. The beauty of all the shadows in the collection is that they really are so versatile and blendable that you can use the same three/four shades in different ways to create completely different looks just by changing the amount of product used and the way it's blended!
The shadows also have a lot more staying power than I expected, and the great thing is you can wear a look all day at work, and quickly change it by adding some shimmer for night time. The only thing I think this kit lacks is a mirror, which would come in really handy in the situation stated above, and also more experienced make-up wearers should be aware that to create looks other than the three on the card and to use the palette to its full potential, you WILL need a crease brush etc as the applicator that comes with the kit is pretty basic.
Summary: Overall a great buy
