Too naked, too naked for my face!

How do I love a soft, neutral eye?  Let me count the ways!  A soft brown eye has always been my go to day look, and I can’t tell you how many shadows and palettes I have that fall in to this category at my house, but I love them!

The Too Faced Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection has 9 shadows in all, with 3 large ( i mean LARGE!) pans of all over lid color.  They are a mix of matte and softly shimmering colors, and you also get 3 how to look cards to help you make your peepers perfect.  That said, I’ve been wanting to try Too Faced shadows for a while, and these palettes are WAY to adorable!  I had a Beauty.com coupon pop in to my mailbox, so I thought I’d take advantage and snap this baby up.

You get, in that cute little box that you can put on your vanity the following:
Three large pans of all over lid colors in: In the Buff, a matte ivory perfect for every day; Birthday Suit, a beige shimmer, and Pink Cheeks, a pale whisper pink.

To accent these base colors, you also get: Pillow Talk, a light taupe with a bit of sheen; Like a Virgin, a matte medium brown; Satin Sheets, a shimmering pink champagne; Unmentionables, a grey shimmer; Lap Dance, a silvery, grey, blue, interesting shiny number; and, Stiletto, a matte blacck that can double as a liner.

You also get a teesy brush in a little pull out drawer.

The kit retails for $36, and for 9 shadows, that makes it about $4 each.  Considering the three larger pans are significatnly more product than the rest that’s a really good deal.  If you get it at Sephora’s VIB sale coming up, you can do even better!  I really like the way these shadows lay down, and if you want a small collection for travelling or for your dresser top, this is perfect.

The shadows are very soft and blend nicely.  The darker shades are very well pigmented and stay on.  I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance as a primer, and my natural eye lasted all day.  My only disappointing is that upon reading the ingredients, they do indeed, like so many shadows – contain parabens.  Parabens are used as a preservative in cosmetics, and can be of particular concern to women because they can impact estrogen, which may increase your risk of breast cancer.  Now, mind you, I am not a doctor, and the studies are lacking some critical formation - like naturally occurring parabens in your body, and how MUCH paraben will impact you negatively, but if I can avoid them, I try to.  Since parabens are absorbed through the skin, and mimic estrogen, excessive paraben can really monkey up your system.

Parabens are found in breast cancer tissue; whether or not these are a side effect of the tumors or a cause of the tumors are unknown.  Bottom line, will I throw away my makeup that contains parabens?  No.  Will I try to educate myself better before buying additional products?  You bet.  I don’t think it’s possible to avoid them entirely, nor do I think it’s necessarily, but I do think there are other options out there, and I can chose to purchase products without an ingreident that is questionsable.

Bottom line, I love this kit and I’m glad I bought it!  If you are are a neutral holic, this one is for you!  Available at Beauty.com, Sephora, and Ulta as well as Too Faced directly.  Don’t forget your ebates (affiliate link)!
