The naughty side of neutral
Too Faced just launched an eyeshadow palette with 30 all-new shades for a naturally sexy look. Called the Natural Lust Eyeshadow Palette*, it celebrates 10 years of Natural Eyes from Too Faced.
Today, Too Faced released an HSN-exclusive set with the Natural Lust palette plus Better Than Sex Mascara and a lip gloss. The collection is valued at $104, but retails for $75 (or less, depending on their specials). Too Faced kindly sent me the set, so I’m sharing my early thoughts and swatches of the Natural Lust Eyeshadow Palette, plus a peek at the other items in the set. I’ll update this post as I use the palette more.
Natural Lust Eyeshadow Palette
What it is: A blockbuster collection of 30 never-before-seen, lust-worthy, natural shades to embrace your sexy and sultry side.
Each shadow is 0.02 oz, for a total of 0.60 oz of product in the $59 palette. The shadows here are actually more expensive than the Too Faced Chocolate Bar, which contains a total of 0.62 oz of product for $49. Kind of surprising considering this palette has cardboard packaging. I suppose you’re paying for the shade range here.
Shades + swatches
I’m really into the color selection. Nothing is super groundbreaking, but all the shades I’d need for an everyday look are here, which is hard to say for most palettes.
Buff It Out (matte marshmallow), Take the Cake (matte baby pink), Sex Drive (metallic rose), Come & Get It (matte antique mauve), On Fire (copper multi-sparkle), Pinned Down (matte fuchsia)
Love Spark (cream multi-sparkle), Afternoon Delight (matte soft brown), Embrace Me (matte taupe), Oops-a-Daisy! (sparkling soft gold), Temptation (gilded olive), Sassy Brassy (metallic bronze)
Silk Robe (matte cream), Flirty Pop (pink champagne), Call Me Back (burnt orange), Just Like That! (metallic mauve sparkle), Set in Stone (matte rustic brown), Hard to Get (gilded taupe brown)
Love Language (matte beige), Too Good (silvered pink), Fall Hard (matte mauve), Such a Tease! (metallic purple brown), Hot to Trot (matte mulberry), Spank Me (matte espresso)
All Tied Up (pearl white), Ball & Chain (metallic pewter), DM Me (matte charcoal grey), Peep Show (gilded lilac), Peacocking (metallic deep teal), Blindfolded (matte pitch black)
I was a bit worried that the quality of this wouldn’t be on par with their other palettes. However, the matte shades are generally creamy. Some are pressed a bit hard into the pans, but mostly have decent pigmentation. The shimmers are really lovely. A few shades are quite glittery and are prone to some fall-out without something like Too Faced Glitter Glue.
HSN Exclusive Set
What it is: Collection of 30 eyeshadow shades ranging from soft neutrals and seductive smoky tones to flirtatious pops of color, plus a mascara for voluptuous lashes and a high-shine lip gloss.

Better Than Sex Mascara
I won’t really say much about this mascara since it’s been around for awhile now. I haven’t used it in some time but it’s a cult-favorite for a reason. Volume, length, super black.
Retails for $24 – available at Sephora
Rich & Dazzling High-Shine Sparkling Lip Gloss
Raisin the Roof – sparkling raspberry blush with silver glitter
I hadn’t tried this new formula yet, but I’m wondering why I’m not hearing about it more. Maybe I just wasn’t listening? Anyway, the formula is really, really good. It’s just the right amount of thickness that makes my lips feel protected but comfortable.
The level of sparkle is not for everyone, but I love an extra wet-looking lip. This definitely delivers.
This gloss retails individually for $21 – available at Sephora.
I’m actually really into the Too Faced Natural Lust Eyeshadow Palette. The HSN set is a great deal and I’d definitely recommend it if you’re cool with sparkly glosses, and/or you know you love BTS mascara.
The Too Faced Natural Lust Eye & Lip Set is currently available for $75 (or less) only at HSN
