I was never a premade eyeshadow palette person, I just love making my own palettes that's why I love Mac eyeshadows, and before that Stila and Artdeco too, because I can make my own personal palettes. Also in the past it was very hard to find good quality premade palettes with neutral shades. But that changed a few years ago when I saw the Too Faced Natural Palette! I bought it exactly 2 years ago, in the summer of 2010, and until now it's my favorite eyeshadow palette!

from left to right: Nude Beach, Honey Pot, Cocoa Puff
The palette contains:
Heaven - matte ivory
Velvet Revolver - matte taupe
Sexspresso - matte deep brown
Silk Teddy - peach champagne shimmer
Push Up - light bronze shimmer
Erotica - soft charcoal shimmer
Nude Beach -champagne shimmer with gold glitters
Honey Pot - gold shimmer
Cocoa Puff - warm chocolate brown shimmer
All the shades are the perfect neutral ones that you can wear for an everyday look at the office or at the school or for nighttime smokey looks! My favorite ones are Heaven - perfect as a browbone shade, Sexspresso - love using it as a liner, Push-Up- as a main lid color for bronzed looks and Cocoa Puff - at the outer corner and crease.
I really have to say that Too Faced makes one of the best quality eyeshadows I've ever tried! The matte ones are incredible pigmented and soft without being chalky. As for the shimmery ones, some of them have a few shimmers, some are frosty and some glittery, with Nude Beach being the most glittery one. Push-Up and Honey Pot are the frosty ones.
The packaging of this palette is a little too thick, because under the eyeshadows there is a pull-out tray with a double sided brush/sponge in it, which in my opinion is completely unnecessery, and I'm happy that the new Too Faced palettes do not have that tray, that makes them more slim and slick. The palette also includes 3 "How To" cards with instructions for 3 looks, "Day", "Classic" and "Night".
In Greece you can find this palette only at Sephora and it costs 35 euros, a little pricey I know, but it's worth it because it contains 9 gorgeous neutral eyeshadows that you can use everyday.
I don't have any complaints about this palette, maybe if it was slimmer it would be more portable but that it's not really a big compaint! Now for the eyeshadows, except for the Nude Beach which is super glittery and I never use, with the rest of the eyeshadows I'm more than happy, I use them everytime I do a neutral look!
Overall Rating: 9/10. I love this palette!
