Too Faced Spring 2012 Collection - Natural Beauty

Time to begin the spring collections!  We may have two long months of winter ahead of us but I am so excited for the warm weather and to see the start of the spring beauty collections.  Personally, I save all of my Christmas money and giftcards to start buying spring makeup and fragrances as soon as they begin to release and the money has been burning a hole in my pocket since the holiday, I can't wait to try some brand new items out!  We are going to begin with the spring collection from Too Faced since it was the first spring collection to emerge, with Chanel coming out soon after.

The new collection from Too Faced is named Natural Beauty, a collection that is based on the neutral eye trend that was seen all over the spring runways.  This looks like a very easy collection to wear and should contain some top selling products.  It appears that Too Faced is capitalizing on the best selling series of eye palettes that promise well done naked and neutral eyes.  I have the Neutral Eye Palette, the first of its kind and the product the created the whole collection of eye palettes that Too Faced has been releasing for the past two or three years.  I am expecting another in the series of palettes from this collection and I am really ready to start looking at the spring makeup products!

I am so ready to begin some spring beauty shopping!  I really like the Natural at Night Eye Palette however so many of those shades are in the Urban Decay Naked Palettes that I think that I can skip over it.  The original Natural eye palette isn't even all that different from this one, this new version contains a few deeper shades but nothing revolutionary.  This is one of those palettes that I really like but don't really need since I already own almost every single one of the shades already.

I find the other two palettes to be very pretty but I am afraid that both of them might be a bit too warm for my skintone, especially the face palette.  The lip palette I want to see in person at Sephora and see how pigmented the shades are and if they would wash me out or are sheer enough to be flattering on my cool toned skin.  The Beauty Balm is of top interest to me, I want to try it as a primer in the cooler weather and then see if I can get away with it alone as I start to self tan in the coming months, I think that this product will be my first purchase from this collection.  I do like the Natural Flirt Makeup Collection, I wanted to try the bronzer and the mascara already and the other shades in it are very attractive.
