Too Faced Natural Matte Palette! Part 1: The Review

I (*my boyfriend) bought this palette today, and words cannot describe how happy I am! I have wanted this palette for ages, and they finally had it in at Debenhams today! I was originally planning on purchasing the Sugar Pop palette, but it hasn't arrived in the UK yet. I will eventually get my hands on it and get a review up for you guys, don't you worry!

I purchased this palette at Debenhams for £32, which isn't that expensive considering you get 12 eyeshadows. You can purchase it here from the Too Faced site: https://www.toofaced.com/p/eye-shadow-palettes/natural-matte/

I also got a free sample of the Chocolate Soleil bronzer which I'm super excited about and will definitely be reviewing for you guys!

Back to the Natural Matte Palette..
First off, the packaging is adorable, which is typical of Too Faced! It's in a tin container, which doesn't feel cheap at all, which magnetically shuts. It contains a mirror and a cute little instruction manual containing simple looks to try out, which is really thoughtful for those of us who don't spend hours on YouTube learning the latest techniques. So the packaging is a promising start!

So the palette is split into three rows, which all have different tones:
- 'Day' contains cool toned eyeshadows 'Heaven', 'Cashmere Bunny' and 'Sexpresso'
Heaven, Cashmere Bunny and Sexpresso respectively 

- 'Classic' contains pink and purply toned eyeshadows 'Lace Teddy', 'Strapless' and 'Risque'
Lace Teddy, Strapless and Risque respectively 
- 'Fashion' (my favourite row) contains warm toned eyeshadows 'Nudie', 'Honey Butter' and 'Chocolate Cookie'

Each row can be used to create a perfect look; the lightest shade can be used as a transition shade, the medium shade can be used to deepen up the crease or be put all over the lid and the darkest shade can be used to further define the crease and the outer v. Of course, you can mix and match the shades as you wish to customise the perfect look for you. The colours in the palette will allow you to create great looks for the day and the evening, alone or in combination with other shadows!

This palette really is the perfect palette because it has a matte shadow to accompany every look, as there are such a wide range of shades. If you have this, you really don't need any other mattes in your collection (of course those of us makeup junkie will have plenty ore though!). This palette is very versatile and can be used to accompany any look! All the matte neutral shades you could wish for are right here!!

So the colour range is great, but what about the formula? I can honestly say that these are the best quality eyeshadows that I have used so far. They are so soft, creamy and pigmented. Even my boyfriend (who knows nothing about makeup!) was impressed! The swatches above were with one dip in the pan! I have tried eyeshadows that many people say are top of the market: Makeup Geek, Mac etc and these are better! Even though they are very pigmented, they blend very easily and are very easy to use, so this palette will be good for those of you who aren't pros!

The only negative thing I have to say is that there is a bit of kick up when you dip your brush into the eyeshadow (which is the most minor thing you can think of!). So I really love this palette, it's well worth your money!

I will be doing looks with this palette very soon guys so stay tuned!

Love you guys,
Starrzbeauty xoxo

Ps. Sorry I haven't been posting on Instagram or here for a few days, my boyfriend has been very ill so I've been looking after him.
