Too Faced: Naked Eye Review & Swatches




Another palette I got during my huge Too Faced haul was the Naked Eye Palette. These gorgeous subtle colors are must haves in my opinion. I love how the Too Faced palettes come with these cute idea cards for you to try. Its a great way to get ideas and learn new looks with all the colors. 






Pillow Talk and Like a Virgin probably are my favorite in the palette. I love matte shadows like these plus they are great transitioning shadows. Satin Sheets is also great for highlighting. Stiletto is a great matte black, although it has a touch of glitter in it which I am not to fond of.
