Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! As many of you know I placed a rather large (ish) Sephora VIB Sale Haul a few weeks ago. It was large by my standards, but I know there are many bloggers & YouTubers who order a lot more than me! One of the products I purchased was the Too Faced Natural Face Palette. There are so many different opinions surrounding the rebranded Natural collection, the eyeshadow palettes look pretty but contain mostly shades from other palettes so there isn’t anything about them that interests me. The Natural Face Palette however caught my eye because I don’t have any similar shades.

Too Faced Natural Face Palette
Luminize, then add a bronzing veil and a flirty flush with this first-of-its-kind face palette. Infused with hydrating coconut butter, the velvety-soft formula includes multi-dimensional shades that will take your natural beauty up a notch.
The Too Faced Natural Face Palette retails for $54CAD at Sephora and contains two 0.14oz bronzers, two 0.14oz blushes and two 0.14oz highlighters for a total of 0.84oz or 24g. The formula is gluten, paraben, phthalate and sulfate free and infused with coconut butter. Too Faced is considered cruelty free and doesn’t sell to China (where animal testing is required on products by law) but they are owned by parent company Estee Lauder which is not cruelty free.
The Too Faced Natural Face Palette has absolutely beautiful packaging. The cardboard, palette and product pans all have a pretty lace detail. The packaging is very similar to last Fall’s release of the Peachy Matte Palette (reviewed here). The Natural Face Palette has the same heavy bubble packaging and a heart closure just like the Peachy Matte palette. The weight makes the palette feel more luxurious to me. The back of the palette is a pretty pastel pink instead of a shiny gold which I actually prefer because finger prints aren’t as visible against it.
The mirror inside the Natural Face Palette is very generous, it’s the perfect size to see your entire face makeup all at once. I hate when palettes don’t have a decent clear mirror so I appreciate that this one has a great mirror.
Something I noticed a lot of YouTuber’s mentioning in their natural face palette reviews was that they thought this palette wasn’t ideal for lighter skin and that it complemented darker skin tones better. I disagree. I have very pale skin through most of the year and I haven’t had a problem working with these shades.
Tropic Like It’s Hot is a little bit dark on me but it blends so easily that I don’t find it hard to work with. When I’m more tanned this summer I think it’s going to be beautiful. In the meantime the shade Sunny Honey is perfect. It gives me the most natural sunkissed glow without being orange on my skin. Pink Wink is especially vibrant but I do enjoy my bright blushes from time to time so it’s not an issue for me.
Starlight is my favourite shade in this entire palette. It’s a pale gold duochrome with a pink flip. The gold Satin Sheets highlighter isn’t especially different from the Satin Sheets eyeshadow in the Natural Love & Chocolate Bon Bons palette but it does make a pretty highlight.
Sunny Honey Bronzing Veil
Too Faced describes the Sunny Honey Bronzing Veil as a Satin finish, however I see nothing satin about this shade. It swatches completely matte against my skin with no shimmer. This is my favourite out of the two bronzers. The formula is dry and blends very well and it comes across as more sunkissed than orange. This is possibly my favourite bronzer ever, it works so well against my pale skin tone!
Tropic Like It’s Hot Bronzing Veil
First of all, what a cute name is Tropic Like it’s Hot!? I love it, I like that the shade names in this palette aren’t super provocative like a lot of makeup releases are. This bronzer is a lot darker on my skin tone than Sunny Honey. Emily Noel has said that she wears it as a blush instead of a bronzer. It has a satin sheen to it but it’s not super glittery.
Pink Wink Blush
If you have a lighter skin tone I recommend using a light hand with Pink Wink as a little goes a long way. My only qualm with the shade itself is that it doesn’t really fit with the “natural” theme of this collection because of what a bright shade it is. Pink Wink has a satin finish.
Pink Sand Blush
Pink Sand is especially beautiful and gives me a very natural looking flush. I can see this shade working for a wide variety of skin tones. Pink Sand is a matte dusty peach blush and my favourite out of the two blushes present in the Natural Face Palette.
Starlight is stunning, I can’t get over how beautiful it is. I have nothing in my makeup collection like this white gold shimmery highlight with a pink duochrome flip. I Cannot. Stop. Using. It. It gives the prettiest glow without the shimmer being chunky. Even when I’m going for a natural makeup application I still love to dust this on the tops of my cheekbones because I can’t get over that pink flip! I would buy this shade and the Sunny Honey Bronzer as individual products if they were available.
Satin Sheets Highlighter
Satin sheets is a shimmery gold highlight. It doesn’t have a duochrome flip but it’s still really pretty. If you apply lightly with a brush it looks natural but you can build it up to be blinding. I don’t find this shade super exciting after using it a few times, I’d rather use Starlight over Satin Sheets!
The highlighters really didn’t want to show up on camera but IRL they’re stunning. You can kind of see the pink from Starlight and the gold from Satin Sheets on my hand. The shades from top to bottom on my arm are Pink Wink, Pink Sand, Sunny Honey, and Tropic Like It’s Hot. When I do swatches I don’t build them to max pigmentation like you often see on instagram. I feel like that gives a false representation of the shades because you expect the same pigmentation in one swipe from seeing those types of swatches. I swipe twice max.
Is It Worth It?
My thoughts on the Too Faced Natural Face Palette are overly positive. The packaging gets an A+ from me, it’s so aesthetically pleasing and sturdy, I hope Too Faced keeps it up with good packaging. The shades blend easily and they don’t blend away to nothing. I also love that there is a subtle coconut smell. It’s not as strong as the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer smell but it’s there. I would absolutely repurchase the Sunny Honey and Starlight shades if they were available in compact form.
My only concerns is that I really didn’t need all of the shades in the Natural Face Palette. My perfect palette would really have been a trio of the shades Starlight, Pink Sand and Sunny Honey. I know that I will keep reaching for those three shades but I’m not sure how much I will be using the highlight Satin Sheets, Pink Wink blush and Tropic Like It’s Hot bronzer. I don’t regret my purchase, but I know I’ll be hitting pan on some shades quicker than others. In hindsight I would have loved to have a face palette trio for half the price instead of paying $54CAD for a palette with six shades.
