This is so beautiful and I’m really *this* close to pre-ordering it. It doesn’t particularly remind me of the mini, though, which I ended up decluttering because the colors looked so bad on me. Cannot WAIT for your review on this one!!!!

I completely get why this would be a disappointment to many, as it really bears no resemblance to the mini. However, because I favor rose, mauve and pink tones as neutrals, this palette would act for me as the Glam does for others. I think I might pick this up as my first ND purchase.

I literally gasped out loud when I saw this palette and the corresponding promo photos and swatches. I have been limiting my eyeshadow purchases to Pat McGrath (with the exception of your collab with Sydney Grace), but this color story has my name all over it. So beautiful!

Nice and balancend colour story, but nothing that I don’t already own in my stash, maybe combining a couple of different palettes. ND is playing on a very safe ground, but it is likely delivering a best seller. From my side, considering the large number of palettes I alredy own, there should be something really innovative to make me purchase a new palette, something I still no notice amongst the mainstream brands (and indies are mostly out of reach for an international customer)

This almost looks like an amped up version of Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette. That’s one of my most-worn palettes ever, so this definitely catches my eye (no pun intended).

Naked 3 was my favorite of the Naked palettes and I actually hit pan on a couple shades. But the last year we’ve been bombarded with so many pink/rose eye shadow shades. I know I can dupe these colors but Natasha Denona is one of my favorite brands and I hate missing out on her palettes.

That’s what I was thinking too! It sort of reminds me of a combination of the Naked 3 and the Naked Cherry. I am EAGERLY awaiting Christine’s review!

You know what? I think I may just love this one! I can see what she’s talking about, that it would work really well with the Glam Palette. Question is, for me at least, is whether I need yet one more large palette. Especially lately. I’ve just been so down that I now hardly even do a real full face of makeup. 😔

I’m in your same boat, Nancy. I haven’t worn hardly any makeup for day in, day out anymore and it’s been probably weeks since I did a full face. It’s hard to get out of a funk when you’re in it. 🙁

This is lovely but not pushing me out of my RONB. I am sure that I will be able to get similar looks from Viseart Tryst and since that palette is good quality, for me the ND would not be an upgrade.

It’s so beautiful! I understand why some people are disappointed with the color story, though… The midi palettes have always been like expanded versions of the mini ones. I think this is the first time we see a midi so different from the mini one. I LOVE the Mini Retro, and was waiting for the midi version to be released. I’m afraid we’ll never see that happen… 😀 Yes, this is “retro”, too. I see the concept, and I love it as I’ve said. But it’s “Retro 2.0” to me, more than Midi Retro, you know? Still, I think we can appreciate it as a standalone product even if we don’t like it.
BUT… Helio and Amara are not the only shades from Lila. Nude Mauve is, too. Since I have Lila, I wish she put new shades instead. The moment I saw the palette, I thought it’ll be on my wish list. But as I noticed the three repeated shades, it’s a little hard to decide for me… :/

It’s simply beautiful the layout of some of these pretty muted colors. I most likely have the burgundy shades but love the Greyson taupes and soft mauves in combo. I am disappointed no army greens the retro mini is my favorite nd palette. Weird she keeps doing this.

I haven’t really seen anything, other than Pat McGrath’s latest palette, that I felt like I had to have until now. I only have Natasha Denona’s Bronze and Glam palettes, along with her Mini Love and Mini Zendo palettes. Then you showed us the Retro Midi palette, Christine! Lol This palette is so stunning!

At first I was disappointed it didn’t look more like the mini. However, after seeing the swatches I’m in love. Can’t wait to add this beauty to my collection.

I did expect some greens. Then I thought the only ND I had wasn’t mini retro. (Even though I used it today, lol.) Since this is my slice of the color pie, I’m truly hoping that it’s duped to the max in stash. Another palette makes zero sense for me. The mini is pretty dented, though. Trouble ahead, trouble behind. Oh, God, how did the Grateful Dead get in here? Oh, yeah. Retro.

The promo pics on this are gorgeous! I don’t have room for another eyeshadow palette, I’m going to have to really talk myself out of this if the reviews are good….ack!!

I think ND has hit the nail on the head with this one – a much better version than what PMG is trying to create with all of her rose themed palettes. It’s a lovely, muted and sophisticated version of the burgundy theme.
As to whether I will purchase it, I will have to wait for the reviews to see if there are too many mattes in it and whether the colours suit me.

Yes, it will be a big seller, but I’m hesitant. First, it’s quite expensive.

I was looking forward to what you had to say, because I’m equally pale, but I’m a cool peach color. And I’ve never tried ND eyeshadows. But I was hoping for some neutral olive colors and mid-tone taupes.

I’m glad the makers seem to have gotten over their pumpkin spice look they did last year (something about my skin turns everything orangey without any help, thanks). So, OTOH it’s not orange–yay! But sometimes brighter mauves can look a little fushia. So I await reviews with baited breath.

This is like Melt’s She’s in Parties but grown up! Shame I don’t like Melt or Natasha’s eyeshadow formulas. Beautiful palette though!

Need. Want. Now.

I’ve got green eyes and this is exactly my jam. Yes, I have the palette already in about 5 different versions, but the ND formula is just so nice.

I think this is beautiful, and I love these kinds of colors, but I’m puzzled. Mini Retro had peachy pinks and those wonderful mossy greenish grays, and instead of complementing those colors, ND went mauve. I think working off what everyone loved about Mini Retro would have been more creative and unusual. I am seeing a lot of mauve coming out for fall, though, so I guess this will sale better.

I like the color story here…I am a big fan of rosy-mauve neutral look when I want to go cooler, and I like the current ND e/s formulas. BUT – yep, there’s always a but – I have 3 of the ND palettes this size and have found that there are too many colors in each palette that I don’t wear. Either they are too similar to other colors in the same palette that I just don’t reach for them, or they are too dark for me to use often (small lid space, downward turned corners, lack of application skill = tough time with darker tones). I want this palette, and am glad it is the smaller midi- size, but will wait to see swatches to decide how many of the colors I would actually use regularly before I buy. If only ND would release singles and allow customizable 6 – 9 pan palettes… that’s about the perfect size for me.

I like it, and love the ND midi palettes but it’s really reminding me of Melt Cosmetics She’s In Parties palette, which I have. Definitely can’t wait for your review and dupe list for this one and I’m still not sure if I want to be talked out of it or not 🤣🤣

I will run, not walk to get this gorgeous and romantic looking palette the second it is available. While some people feel that it and the mini retro aren’t cohesive, I’m ok with that. Pinks and purples seem an odd choice for Fall but I’m dying to have it. I hope it’s as pigmented and creamy as the other ND palettes I have.

This palette reminds me of an expanded version of Melt’s She’s In Parties which I absolutely love. This color story is beautiful and sophisticated. I’m starting to realize I have a type…lol

Nine mattes is a disappointment for me but because I love her metallics I’ll buy it. Just wish there weren’t so many dark brown leaning shades. They make me look old and tired.

I have the same issue… dark, muted colors don’t work for me. Am hoping the swatches/reviews don’t come out as dark as they appear in pan…

You know usually I’d think the same on having too many mattes, but since I have so many metallics from her (and others), I hoping they simply will stay true to palette color (which usually is NOT the case with ND’s mattes).

Just a random observation – remember when the mini Retro palette was launched and we all observed that the promotional images didn’t seem to match the colours in the palette? Strangely enough, those images all totally match the colour story in the new midi palette!

This reminds me of the love palette which I decluttered. I have all these shades so an easy pass. I have been waiting for this. But it’s not calling my name.

OMG—cool and matte shades in colors that I like?! Not just a cool color or two in a warm set?! This’s the second time it’s happened in a single season. Mind blown.

I promised myself that I’d lay off eyeshadow after the SGxT, but I also kinda feel like I have to buy cool-matte palates when they’re actually made. Stockpile them for the inevitable “70’s Kitchen Colors” or “Sallow Much?” megatrends looming beyond the horizon.

Hahaha!! Love your sense of humor here. Yeah, I kill in warm tones, but can also pull off cool tones and don’t want to always have to go the “gray-taupe” or “disco blue” route for a cooler eye look.

Said the same thing, but that cool mauve vibe with the Glam palette will rock, so unless I can dupe over 90% for over half the palette, I’ll be asking my kids to buy this for Mom for Christmas, Ha!

It’s pretty, but nothing like the mini palette. I probably have all of these colours already, especially since I tend to wear a lot of pink mauve tones as my neutrals. Natasha’s metallic and shimmery formulas never last on my eyes, but I do love her mattes. This could be something I pick up later on during a big sale.

I’m the rare voice that’s expressing disappointment in this. Mel Thompson made a video awhile back where she used singles to make her interpretation of a full-sized Retro palette, and her interpretations are much more what I was hoping for out of a midi Retro. This is just another set of boring neutrals – and I LOVE neutrals. Yawn.

While I like this palette scheme, it is NOT what I would have expected compared to the retro mini and can completely understand where people who were hoping for that sage green/dusky peach vibe would be disappointed.

Truly, I was hoping for those beautiful grungy greens and peaches that the mini had. I was so excited to see more of that type of color story.

But honestly, it’s fine. The mini makes me happy and so many folks are excited for this palette. I don’t want to dull their excitement! I just hoped for more.

My kind of color story. I’m certain my collection can dupe it – but if the swatches are as good as claimed, this one is mine come a sale. I have some of the minis, but have heard that the larger palettes are where it’s at for quality.

I can see this one becoming a favorite for so many! Heck, a couple of years ago I would have jumped on it myself, but I think I’ll skip out on this one and love it from afar. Lots of mauvey dupes in my collection already.

I’ve been waiting for a ND release to have a color story that I’d actually use, and this might be it. I’m also more interested since it’s the $65 version.

Buying. I tend to buy all the fanciful, colorful, loud palettes I can get my hands on and then come job interview, doctor’s visit, pretty but responsible adult time, etc., I find myself feeling insecure.
I can probably dupe this, but I can’t dupe this in her formula. I do have Lila, but it’s getting older in years and I like the way that these can be popped out and rearranged into custom palettes. I also skipped all the Divine Rose stuff except the lipsticks which, for me, are Pat’s best products.
I can always return it if it’s trash.

I said your palette would be the last, WHY?! Why did she do this? LOL! And the price point works for me and this would oh so work with my redo of Glam. Hmmmm.

Okay, who else comes back to this post just to look at the first picture model’s eyes???!!! This is just lovely and sultry and ans and… ;). I’m almost hoping I won’t be able to dupe the palette.
