Product Review | Natasha Denona Gold Eyeshadow Palette
Product Review | Natasha Denona Gold Eyeshadow Palette ($129, Sephora, Beautylish, Natasha Denona.Com)
Product Details (from Sephora's website): A palette featuring 15 brand-new eyeshadow shades in the classic, signature Natasha Denona formulas, including matte, metallic, sparkling, and duo-chrome shades. The palette debuts shades of gold in an array of different textures. It also includes browns and greens to complement any of the gold hues, so you can create a broad range of eye looks—from natural and golden to dramatic glam.
Review: This palette was released in the fall of 2018. I decided to skip it since I had already picked up a couple of palettes from the brand earlier and added a Pat McGrath Mothership to that so I knew tackling this would be a tad bit much. It also reminded me a little bit of the Sunset Palette with some of its gold tones but there was something about it that made this palette unforgettable.
I picked this up from Natasha Denona's Black Friday Sale. I always say that if anyone wanted to try her palettes, her Black Friday sale is the best way to go since they go on sale between 25% - 40% on palettes - a much better sale than Sephora's. It comes in a high shine glossy finish dark green box with gold typography having a similar vibe to the Metropolis palette. The actual palette is a gold patent leather case which includes 15 large eyeshadow pans, a medium-sized mirror and a clear flap that can be detached which contains the names of each eyeshadow.
I love the color scheme on this palette due to its neutral but a muted splash of color with its blue tones. This is a palette for someone who prefers an every day wearable shade but wants to test the waters using some color. The mattes are pigmented but blend very well. They also layer well on top of another shade. The shimmers and metallics are easy to apply. Both the mattes, shimmers and metallics have a slight powder kick up but those are typical to buttery soft formulas. Typical to most Natasha Denona palettes, these are long-wearing and beautiful on the eyes.
Would I recommend this palette? If you are anything like me, yes I would. However, if you want to get a better value for your money, I would recommend the Metropolis Palette only on a price stand point. Otherwise, this palette is amazing and if you happen to have extra cash to pick it up this holiday season, this palette is perfect.
