Joya

Natasha Denona Joya Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday offering that features a new formula–the brand’s “cream-powder hybrid shadow.” The new formula is supposed to have “pigment-rich coverage of a cream” with the “long-lasting, crease-free wear of a powder.” From what I could tell, this just meant a slightly denser feel with less dustiness/powderiness but wasn’t anything outside of normal range in texture for a powder eyeshadow. Most of the shades had good, buildable pigmentation and were blendable on the lid with eight to nine hour wear and minor fallout (three shades are quite sparkly).

Peach Gold (135DC)

Peach Gold (135DC) is a medium-dark pink with warm, coppery shimmer and sparkle. The pigmentation was good, though it wasn’t quite opaque, and the consistency was loose, slightly chunky, and more prone to sheering out on the skin. I felt like this was a shade that had to be used with fingertips or with a dampened brush to help smooth and even out the coverage on the lid. It wore well for eight and a half hours with slight falllout over time.

Fuchsia (136CP)

Fuchsia (136CP) is a rich, medium-dark raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, somewhat firm texture that needed a dense brush or a heavier hand to achieve full coverage. I was surprised, however, that it blended out rather easily–even with fluffy, soft brushes–once in place on the lid. It had more medium, buildable coverage with a less dense brush. On me, it lasted for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Gold (137CP)

Gold (137CP) is a bright, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage. The consistency felt almost wet in the pan, though it was definitely still a powder product at heart. What was most surprising was that there was very little fallout during application as well as after eight and a half hours of wear.

Red Grape (138M)

Red Grape (138M) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The color payoff was fantastic, while the texture was smooth, moderately dense, but it was blendable and easy to work with on the lid. The eyeshadow started to fade on me after nine hours of wear.

Star Bronze (139CP)

Star Bronze (139CP) is a medium brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper sparkle. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though it was just shy of full coverage without a second layer patted on top. The eyeshadow applied better with a dampened brush, as it did not look as even dry (though only noticeable close-up). It lasted for eight and a half hours with slight fallout over time.

I’m getting weary of all the warm shade palettes that keep coming out. There seems to be better palettes out there for shades like this.

Plus this palette seems awfully expensive for so few shades. Wondering how it compares to other palettes, value-wise.

I bought this and I think the colors are so beautiful.When I pulled the palette out of its packaging the night I opened them I was extremely impressed because the shimmer shades just stood out more than usual.Your eye look is stunning💛

Me thinks this be the winter of glitter! But, I’m loving it anywho! As for this particular palette, I feel that I already have many similar shades, even if not all true dupes. So, I am feeling a bit undecided on this gem when it comes to buying it. Although, needless to say, I do love it.

I’m trying to decide if I want this one, the one with the blue, or both. I know I don’t need both or either, but I do have 3 of the dupes in this one, but this is just so pretty. Plus, I am interested in this new formula. For the price and the way some of the shadows performed, I wasn’t that impressed with the Sunset palette. So I’m tempted to see if this performs any better for me than that did.

A great little palette if the shades work for you. I can honestly say that not one of these colour are those that I would wear. But I think the ratings and shades are lovely for others.

Well, I was never terribly impressed with Natasha’s current shadow formula, thought it was too hit-or-miss, so I was skeptical about this new formula but….. uh oh, these are great scores! The swatches look stunning! I have some dupes, but not as nice as these. Hmmm, I might grab this one if I can catch a sale. But if she keeps coming out with better shadows, my wallet is in trouble!

Even though I’ve accumulated SO many of the $42-$49 range of palettes (most of which I really only use a couple of colors), I’m really drawn to this. The color combination seems wearable enough, but I love glitter so this is right up my alley. Might consider investing in it when the Sephora sale rolls around. Thanks for the beautiful inspo Christine!
