So over Christmas received the Too Faced Natural Matte pallet as a gift. As I was swatching it I thought to myself, this reminds me a lot of the e.l.f mad for matte pallet. They are similar but not as similar as I thought they would be. Too Faced has 9 shadows and e.l.f has 10.
Costs. Too Faced $36, e.l.f $10
The packaging. If you are familiar with Too Faced it has there typical aluminum packaging. It has a super cute fun design . E.l.f is sleek and black and is plastic. I would say Too Faced won here.
Too Faced is first then e.l.f
I have used both these on my eyes. The e.l.f one is a little chalky. Too Faced is a little powdery but nothing you can not tap off. They both have great pigmentation. I have a picture of them next to each other. You can create some pretty similar looks.
Time for some dupes. Every one likes dupes right? These are not exact!! But they are close.
Left: 6th e.l.f. Right: Sexpresso from Too Faced
Left: 5th e.l.f. Right” Strapless Too Faced
Left: 8th e.l.f Right: Risque Too Faced
I think e.l.f could have named they shadows individually, other then that it is 100% worth the money. This palette is only 10 bucks! That is $1 an eye shadow and these are amazing eye shadows.
Too Faced could have a black in it. Every great palette has a black I think. It is more expesive then the e.l.f, if it was not a gift I would have not bought it. Do not get me wrong I love the brand, it is probably my favorite high end brand and I own plenty from them. You only really need one amazing matte palette.
In the end I would recommend e.l.f first. You get good eye shadows, lots of colors and sleek packaging for 10 dollars.
