Review: Many of you already know that Natasha Denona is my favorite eyeshadow brand and a neutral color story is my jam, so when she came out with an all neutral palette, there was no way I was going to skip on purchasing this one. The box packaging is a shiny light pink nude box with a white and dark brown typography. The palette is housed in a sturdy plastic casing that comes with a large mirror. The shadows are attached on a magnetic compact and on the back of the palette there are holes where you can pop the pans out and put in a different magnetic palette, should you wish to do so. There are three metallic shadows in this palette and the rest are a nice matte finish.
Honestly, I was not concerned that it only had three metallic shades because to be honest, on a day to day use, champagne and golden hues are what I usually wear for daytime use. The rest of the matte shadows are interchangeable for a daytime or nighttime look. Typical of Natasha Denona shadows, the formula is buttery. It is soft so there will be a slight kick up, but as long as you tap your brush prior to application, it will blend seamlessly. It also blends nicely on top of another shadow. The shimmers are beautiful and pack a punch but I always wet my brush or fingers when I apply shimmers. These shadows are beautiful, long-wearing and pigmented.
I definitely love this palette but I am a true Natasha Denona consumer so I say that on all of her palettes. I would recommend this palette if you are a true Natasha Denona fan and if you want to splurge. I highly recommend getting this palette on sale due to its hefty price. However, if you want a cool toned, neutral palette that is more affordable, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette is a good alternative.
