Natasha Denona Green-Brown Eyeshadow Palette
Natasha Denona Green-Brown Eyeshadow Palette

Natasha Denona Green-Brown Eyeshadow Palette 28 ($239.00 for 2.24 oz.) has a variety of shades ranging from gold to bronze to emerald green. The majority of the eyeshadows are frosted or metallic, while a a handful are more matte. I found some of the mattes in this palette to perform better than the average matte in the brand’s formula, particularly some of the more neutral-hued shades (the more colorful mattes seemed to be the most troublesome). Even the mattes that performed better applied than anticipated were very powdery, though. The more shimmery shades are easy to use, tend to be quite pigmented, and look good on the eye, but they’re not long-wearing as promised–between six and eight hours, I almost always had creasing. With a primer, I was able to extend wear by two hours or so, which is still less than what I average across most powder eyeshadows.

If you’re not overly concerned about wear time or feel confident that your primer/base solution will alleviate any concerns, the shimmer eyeshadows are nice otherwise. The mattes are better, but they’re still disappointing at this price point–there is significant room for improvement. I still recommend picking up a five-pan pre-made palette over splurging on one of these larger palettes, as you can get a good feel for the formula without breaking the bank. I also think that this larger palette isn’t a cohesive or comprehensive palette for travel or building out a variety of looks as it doesn’t have a lot of highlighting, transition, or blending kind of shades. The palette can absolutely be used on its own, but there is just a general lack of mattes that I feel like many will add-in other textures. I would have preferred the palette to be more versatile with removable pans and a smaller, more travel-friendly sized palette. I also think that being able to build your own five-pan palette would be ideal. The brand should consider labeling the shades on the interior of the palette or at least on the back of the palette (the exterior cardboard packaging as the shades labeled).

I have reviewed and worn all the shades in this palette over the last few weeks, so this post is serving more of a general round-up for the palette (so you can see the palette’s score, based on its contents!) while you can find individual reviews by clicking on the shades below:

Some of the looks turned out nice. I do use primer and don’t mind it if needed. But, it’s nice to not have to. If they would have merged this palette with the purple one and improved the quality, maybe the price would be justifiable maybe as a Christmas gift or something. But, with the quality, and the needing to pull in other shadows and primer, I just can’t do it. Thanks do much Christine for taking so much time and effort on these!

It’s kind of a shame for the price point on the quality overall of these shade.

If you looking for quality and travel-friendly palette as a makeup artist I still highly recommend the Yaby cosmetics sets. I popped the shadows out into 2 z palettes for all 3 palettes…. I still need to post a review them but they were worth every penny.

See and you wanted me to get this at IMATS LA, LOL. Oh heck no! LOL. I did get a small one and I will show it to you on youtube, beat you can’t guess which number I got LOL. See you on the YT Warpaint, Muah!! (MakeupVixen)

Soo true…. I was leery because no one on youtube was review and doing full swatches of the sample palettes they got. They look fabulous though and I would have picked this one up out of the two if I was at the show. lol

But too many subpar browns. 🙁

Right? I’m really surprised they bothered with mattes 🙁 Or maybe they should have focused exclusively on the shimmery shades in the palette and made a matte-only palette, lol.

It’s nice that they tried to give some variety in the finishes, but they should have waited till they had a decent matte formula.

Thanks for doing this review!! It’s funny, I’ve mostly seen YouTube go crazy over this palette. But Tati, who I person trust, was kind of like, “Eh, it’s hit or miss. Buy individual shades you like and save money.” So it’s interesting to me that you had the same reaction because I’ve always found your reviews to be spot on. I think I’ll pass on this. For me to spend that kind of money, I agree it should have been a more well-rounded palette and should have blown my mind with it’s quality. I’d rather spend $160 on kick-ass makeup geek shadows and build my own 32-pan palette.

It is a lot to put towards one product, even if it is a lot of shades – I think one really has to assess how they would use the palette, their preferences/style, and so forth and whether the subjective value is there (not just a per ounce or per shade calculation, it’s unlikely that a consumer is going to use up any shade–the pans are large). I don’t know if it’s something I’d save up for in the long-run (I’d be more inclined to recommend people to consider a 5-pan and checking it out first).

Thank you so much for bringing reality to these palettes! I feel like there was so much mystique surrounding these mega palettes with their mega price tags. I was pining over them for so long. Now I can pass and totally be ok with it.

Sure thing, Emily! If you ever end up curious again, the 5-pan palette seems to be the better compromise between “value” (compared to purchasing them individually) vs. total cost. I hope they’ll do custom 5-pans, since that would be the best.

I love your first look. I don’t know… I just don’t get these. $240 seems like an okay price if you’re an MUA and the palette is comprehensive and workable on all skins… but these aren’t imo. And for personal use $240 would be defensible if every shade was A+. But the difference in quality between the metallics and the mattes is on par with drugstore palettes (Sleek comes to mind).

TL;DR: Super pigmented shimmers/metallics are available at every price point. Not enough to set this palette apart at its price point.

Your recommendation of checking out the 5-shade palettes seems the way to go, if one must.

$240 is just a lot to put into one product, regardless of the “value” or the “deal” behind it – even 50 or 100 eyeshadows for $240 is a good deal in theory, but it’s still a lot to drop in one go. In this case, I just don’t think there’s a massive enough savings between a 5-pan and the mega-palettes to justify going full-hog unless you LOVE them. To me it’s like the Make Up For Ever 30-pan palettes — at $295, it’s for someone who knows and LOVES the Artist formula. It also matters how many shades you’d really use in the composition – how many shades will you never use, how many will you use maybe once or twice, compared to how many shades will you actually want to use?

Christine, your answer here gives the perfect perspective to the price point issue! Unless you are truly bonkers-in-love with a particular brand’s eyeshadow formula and all the shades included in one of these higher price palettes, it’s just not a good deal no matter what.

The five pan palette I got did not include the shade names or shade type anywhere. Not on the packaging and not on a plastic (or other) insert. Not to nitpick, but given the price point I would have expected that at least. As it is, I’m still guessing what formulas I got. Really annoying.
My five pan had 2 lovely shades and 3 that tended to get a little muddy unless worn alone (they were so soft they blended not ideally into each other.
So glad someone like you did an honest review of these. It isn’t that I don’t like the one I got…I actually do. But best shadows ever, as some keep saying? Hardly. Not even close.

If you go to Natasha Denona’s website, the 5-pans have labels on them (just online) for reference – I haven’t cross-referenced with Beautylish’s images, so I don’t know if they’re the same combinations, but they might be. At least then you can figure it out!

Thanks! Same combinations on both sites. Funny, I never went back to the ND site to check…only the Beautylish one. Such an obvious solution!
But I’m still annoyed. With the 5 pans the packaging is cheap and unlabeled. For me, at the price point, I’d rather get something that has a better experience and feel. And I actually think the shadows I got (12, purples and gold) are pretty.

I haven’t heard good things re: packaging on the singles/5-pans (I don’t like the larger pans – it definitely just doesn’t feel like it is good enough for the price).

The packaging looks cheap (and is cheap) for the 5 pans. No brush but an empty pan under the shadows which looks like it should hold a brush. So many brands, not even just the higher end ones, have such gorgeous packaging…so why not be competitive? Here I am complaining about packaging and not discussing the shadows much. Viseart also has sub par packaging but you get more shades (for not so much more money) and the shadows are consistently better (and no empty pan that looks like it’s missing a brush). For a new brand, better packaging probably would help. The brand should have done better at the price point, in my opinion. I don’t buy based on packaging but it can make you feel like you got something nice.

I’m grateful for these reviews. But even before reading you, I couldn’t figure out my workflow with these. What happens when you hit pan on your favourite shade, and what happens when you really take to a few shades, but realise you really can’t travel with them. It feels like a deal, but then isn’t.

Thanks for these reviews! I almost bought into the hype with these, but took a step back and really thought about it. I won’t use every shade. Right there, that’s not a value for me. And when I see looks people have done, they don’t look that special to me. I can get the same look with many different shadow brands. I recently bought two Tom Ford quads and they are stunning. Some of the best shadows I’ve used. I was hesitant about the price, but after using them, they really are top quality. These palettes seem too hit or miss and not luxurious enough to warrant the price tag. Added to it, I just don’t think they are that unique! Thank you again for the review–I always liked basing my thoughts off of your opinion.

No problem, Samantha Jane! I am glad I could share. Happy to hear you are loving your TF quads. Which two did you get?

I got Cocoa Mirage and Golden Mink. I’m surprised by how much I love Cocoa Mirage. When I was looking through the quads online, I thought, “That’s one I for sure won’t get. How boring.” I was so wrong. It is literally the perfect companion quad. I also really like Golden Mink. I like how “sophisticated” the glitter shades are.

When the hype has died down and it’s on super marked down clearance, like 70% off, then maybe I can be tempted in getting one. Until then, I pass LOL. Thanks for the review on both palettes. I was hoping the green brown palette would get higher ratings from you but that’s not the case so I can’t buy it, not with those grades. I ordered a 5 palette just to see how they are, applied for a Pro account too to help on budget, we shall see if it’s worth it. I just think it’s too much hype for it right now.

This one most definitely seems to work a bit better. Which doesn’t exactly surprise me considering these are much more neutral shades which most companies tend to “get right”. Problem is, that those if us who already have larger stashes likely have many shades like these as it is.
Again too, the grade and the weartime are serious deterrents. Especially at this price point, one would expect much better than these.

I agree – at the price point, there’s just no reason they couldn’t use the best/formulate the best, so it is harder to be OK with any missteps.

I just wanted to say “thank you” again, Christine, your reviews are always so balanced and not “hyped” like a lot of my favorite videos on YouTube. I think it’s really easy to get excited about something new and sparkly, but I would rather save my money if there’s better bang for the buck elsewhere!

Are you going to do any reviews on the Fiona Stiles line at Ulta?

There are lots of lovely colours in this palette, a few too many that are similar to each other and a couple of duds. But it is an expensive palette and the quality is so hit and miss.
Thank you so much for your in depth review – this would have taken ages. Your eye looks for this palette have been beautiful.

I received my palette yesterday and they must’ve heard the cry for labeling because in the palette I received, the colors are labeled. Interestingly enough, the colors are also arranged differently in my palette. I am uber excited about this palette because the good shades are really, really good (they melt into perfection on the lid), but agree that the mattes are so so. I would’ve liked to see a matte black and eggplant added in as well for deepening and switching up a lot of the brown tones. It is a very expensive palette to have holes in, that’s for sure. But, swept up in the hype, I couldn’t resist 🙂

Oh, that’s awesome!! Happy to hear there were some changes. Is your ingredient list the same as the one posted in this review, by chance?

Sadly I threw out the packing already so I am not sure. I’ll keep that in mind for the future though! Also I have to say, I love your reviews and rarely make a purchase without first consulting the Temptalia Gods (AKA YOU!)!

what are your thoughts on this brand compared to MUFE or Inglot especially in terms of formula? I like some of the colours but can’t help but feel they’re dupable, and their videos showing how pigmented the eyeshadows are doesn’t seem to correlate with the swatches!!

Make Up For Ever is a different type of formula, as it is more silicone-heavy — much denser, more cream-like, and thinner overall (less powdery). Inglot is more similar but firmer-packed in the pans across the board.

I really like the color, but not the performance, of Glam Green and Cloudy Blue. I love Industrial, like Antique Olive quite a bit. I wish the palette was more cohesive and that the shadows were consistently good quality

The range has some cool shades, and I like some of the finishes. I think the brand would have done better–overall–with readers if they didn’t have mega-palettes, or if they spent more time hyping up their 5-pans.

I really like this palette but Tarababyz reviewed it and the shimmer transferred on her hooded eyes extremely quickly, and my eyes are more hooded than hers so I can only imagine what kind of nightmare this would be on me lol.
