Colour Pop Blue Moon 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) has an assortment of blues ranging from pale, iridescent blue to darker blue.

Natasha Denona Sunrise & Sunset Palettes Makeup Look Ideas (x15)

As the new Natasha Denona Sunrise 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.67 oz.) is designed to complement the original Sunset palette, I thought it'd be nice to share some color combinations using both palettes!

Natasha Denona Sunrise 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.67 oz.) is a new, permanent palette designed to complement the original Sunset palette.
