About a year ago, Too Faced came out with a 9-pan eyeshadow palette called the Natural Eye Palette. I fell in love with the promo image on Sephora’s website, was delighted by the softness and pigmentation of the shadows, but was ultimately turned off by the frostiness of the four frosty shades. Click here to revisit swatches of the Natural palette.
Well Too Faced has come out with a new eye palette (which I can’t help thinking of as “version 2.0″). The “Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection” is cooler, softer, and a little less frosty. I just wish Too Faced wouldn’t name things in a way that’s clearly designed to confuse me.
In the Buff is matte white. Birthday Suit is satin mauve-beige. Pink Cheeks is a satin pale pink. Pillow Talk is satin sand. Satin Sheets is a shimmery/frosty pale-pink/oyster-gold duochrome. Lap Dance is a shimmery/frosty purple-grey (iced violet). Like a Virgin is a matte taupe. Unmentionables is a shimmery gunmetal taupe. Stiletto is matte black, not exceptionally pigmented.
