Too Faced Natural Love Palette: Review and Swatches
Right in time for the spring blooms and warmer weather, Too Faced has a stunning 30-shade neutral eyeshadow collection called the Natural Love Ultimate Neutral Eye Palette ($69 CAD). With 13 iconic shades and 17 never-before-seen neutrals, the palette is an absolute dream for any makeup lover. To see some swatches and read my review of the formulation, click......

Packaging:
Housed in a large but slim cardboard packaging printed with gorgeous hand-drawn illustrations of flowers, bunnies, and birds, the Natural Love Ultimate Neutral Eye Palette includes 30 eyeshadow shades weighing at 0.8g each. The palette includes a large mirror and the lid features some fuzzy flocking details that add a little extra cuteness to the packaging. I would have preferred a metal or plastic compact but I can see how that can get quite bulky for a 30-shade palette.

Formulation:
With 13 pre-existing shades from previous Too Faced palettes and 17 brand new colors, the Natural Love Ultimate Neutral Eye Palette offers up a very nice range of pinks, peaches, and browns. In terms of the overall quality, the palette is pretty nice! The majority of the mattes is soft and creamy while the shimmers are pigmented and buttery smooth. However, a few of the sparkles and darker colors are a bit chalky or fallout-prone. See below for a full breakdown.
If you already own a lot of Too Faced palettes or neutral palettes from other brands, then the Natural Love Palette is probably not a necessity. Also, a few of the shades (the browns, in particular), are quite repetitive, making me wish that Too Faced was a bit more creative with the colors. However, if you like the color selection like I do, then this palette is still a worthy investment!
