Lila

Natasha Denona Lila 15-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) is a new, permanent palette with 15 eyeshadows that span matte to metallic textures and pale pink to cool purple shades. There were a few shades that could have been better–more pigmented, less sparkly–but most were easier to work with when used with a dampened brush, which I know many have no issue using with their high-shine shimmers, so those things might not be deal-breakers in that instance. Most of the eyeshadows were pigmented and blenable with eight-hour wear.

An observation (but not something that impacted the rating) I had was that it was not the most cohesive palette on its own; the colors could certainly be used together, but there were a lot of intensely shimmery shades and only a few mattes. The mattes could have been in more readily usable shades to coordinate with some of the tones of the shimmery shades as well. It felt like a palette that I wanted to use to complement other palettes than as a standalone palette for me.

Natasha Denona Lila Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) is a new, permanent palette that features 15 eyeshadows–four mattes and the rest ranging from pearl to sparkling, metallic in finish.

First Impressions

I imagine that if you liked Natasha Denona’s Sunset Palette or enjoy the more shimmery shades from the brand’s earlier releases, you’ll enjoy the quality of the Lila palette. It felt comparable to me, and the shades that I did apply (I have not finished wearing them, so I cannot speak on wear) were in line with the formulations used in the Sunset palette. If you tend to incorporate more matte eyeshadows into your looks, you might find that there aren’t enough to support a variety of looks within the palette, and a lot of the shimmers are quite frosted/metallic with some having a bit of larger sparkle to them, which might be prone to fallout. The majority of the eyeshadows seemed to be semi-opaque to opaque in pigmentation with fairly soft textures, though the mattes had a drier, velvety feel–dry but not really in a bad way–and always appeared noticeably darker applied than they did in the pan (the metallics are almost the reverse–more reflective and therefore lighter on).

Sunset

Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) includes 15 eyeshadows in various warm-toned hues–a lot of red/orange-toned coppers, oranges, and browns–with a mix of matte, shimmer, and sparkle finishes. I think it is actually one of the best Natasha Denona palettes that has been released with respect to cohesiveness and quality. I also feel like 15 is a solid number of shades to create a curated, cohesive, and useful palette from, and for the brand, while still pricey, still a more palatable price compared to the larger 28-pan palettes. The more sparkly shades included in this palette were a serious improvement from the Star palette as well, though I would still recommend using them damp for maximum performance. The majority of the eyeshadows also wore better without primer on me this time around than they have in the past.

It’s a real shame that this palette is limited edition–I think the brand should consider adding it to the permanent line-up or else doing a major re-release. I know that some retailers that carried this palette are working on a limited restock, but I have not heard anything solid or a confirmed date yet. Alternatively, an excellent palette with a similar vibe (very warm-toned) is Viseart Warm Mattes, which I would then supplement with shimmers within one’s stash or some of these single eyeshadows or BH Foil Eyes, which has a lot of frost/metallic shades.

Edit: As of 2:54PM PST, Sephora has it back in stock.

Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) includes 15 eyeshadows in various shades of warm-toned hues with matte, shimmer, and sparkly finishes. The palette seemed to sell through very quickly when it initially launched earlier this week. I know retailers are attempting to get more product, and I hope that the Natasha Denona brand uses this as an opportunity to listen to their customers and commit to making more. While I will review the palette in full, I went ahead and already add all of the dupes for each shade in the palette, so if there was one you had your eye on, check The Dupe List! 🙂 You can also view all the dupes for shades in the palette here.

Natasha Denona Star Eyeshadow Palette ($169.00 for 1.44 oz.) features 18 eyeshadows, all of them new, with a combination of four finishes. There are two new finishes: Creamy Matte (CM), which is supposed to an improved version of the matte formula, and Crystal (K), which is supposed to have a “sparkling, star-like shimmer.” The brand’s eyeshadows are supposed to be “long-lasting” with “strong color payoff” that “will not crease” and “easily adhere to the eye–without having to use primer.” The Creamy Matte formula is denser than the regular Matte formula, and it seemed to be more pigmented with less sheering out, but they tended to darken on the skin and did not layer as well with each other. Two shades were almost clumpy in texture (Phoenix, Electra) and were messy to use–even over primer, they were extremely difficult to build up or blend out without using lighter shades to help. The Crystal formula has large, chunky sparkle, which didn’t really bind with the base color, so there is a lot of fall out during application and moderate fall out during wear (less than anticipated, actually).

I would recommend using these eyeshadows with a damp brush and/or over a glitter adhesive for better coverage, as they look more like layering shades on their own (regular primer was not enough to combat the issues). Though the Creamy Mattes are denser, they are still rather thin and have a more powdery feel compared to the Metallics, Duo-Chromes, and Crystals that they do not blend and layer as well. I had the best luck using a Metallic shade and really diffusing it and sheering it out well past where I wanted it to be, and then layering a Creamy Matte over it, but if I laid down a Creamy Matte first, the Metallic, Duo-Chrome, and Crystal shades would not stick on top of them.

The staying power without primer was between six and eight hours before creasing/fading, and with regular eyeshadow primer (Smashbox 24HR), six to nine hours–excluding glitter fall out. You will want to apply your eye makeup first, and then wipe away fall out. I had more success removing more of the glitter fall out with an actual wipe rather than a brush (or loose powder, then a brush), as the flecks were hard to brush away for me.
