Before starting my post, I’d like to thank my amazing friend and fellow threegals blogger Nouf for introducing me to the world of Natasha Denona and buying these eyeshadow palettes for my birthday!!! ❤
Now on to the post:
I absolutely love it when makeup artists design their own range of makeup products. There is no one who understands the needs and wants of makeup consumers more than they do. Now I’ve heard about Natasha’s legendary eyeshadows with the pigment that goes on and on and on however its very difficult to buy her products and have them shipped out here. So when Beautylish stocked them I was obviously planning to purchase some of her products primarly her eyeshadows.
Thats when Nouf gifted me three of Natasha’s most gorgeous eyeshadow from the “Eyeshadow Palette 5” range.
Palette #07 is a cool toned blue-gray palette.
Palette #09 is a very neutral earth toned palette.
Palette #10 is a warm plum-purple palette.
Now the packaging on these palettes is a very basic white plastic, however it feels heavy duty and sturdy. The front is see-through, with Natasha’s name stamped on the front. These shadows do not come with a brush, but there is a small compartment under the shadows if you want to put a brush of your own. The palette snaps open and shut and is very sleek, so it is ideal if you’re on the run and don’t want shadow dust all over your things.
I had some time to play around and try out different looks with the palettes before reviewing them, and I can confirm that the legend is true: these shadows are POPPIN’ yaaaaas Natasha!!!
The shades in the palettes complement each other nicely. They are extremely buttery and beyond pigmented. Palettes #07 and #10 both contain a variety of matte, shimmer and metallic shadows, whereas palette #09 only contains shimmers and metallics.
I experienced some fallout with all the shades but the result was worth it (I think it’s best to apply your eye look before continuing with the rest of your face if you want to use these shadows). Longevity wise, the shadows stayed put all day, and did not fade whatsoever. There was also no noticeable transfer throughout the day.
I will say though, Natasha’s mattes are not as creamy or pigmented as her shimmery or metallic shades, and could be a little patchy especially the darker plum shade, but they still held up better than mattes from other brands. I still prefer my Viseart matte shadows.
Now on to the swatches!
Disclaimer: As per usual, I never apply eyeshadows without the help of a primer. I used my Mac paint pot in Layin’ Low for these swatches.
Some of my favorite shades are vintage, true gold, antique gold, nina’s orchid and powder blue.
Worth mentioning: These swatches were applied completely dry, but as you can imagine, using a little bit of Fix+ or a dampened brush gives a heavenly finish.
I think these palettes are extremely beautiful, and definitely worth it. Now they are not the cheapest, they go for $48 on Beautylish, but I believe they are one of those investment products. These are also great if you want to try out her shadows before making a larger purchase, such as her 28 shadow palettes.
So that’s all I have for this blog post! Let me know what you all think of her palettes, and if you’re interested in buying, you can find them here:
