Last week, a reader reached out and asked if I’d review the reformulated Natasha Denona Star Eyeshadow Palette ($169.00 for 1.44 oz.), and the brand confirmed that there was an update made 1.5 to 2 years ago (I’m guessing near when Sunset was updated).
Diving into it deeper, I looked through the ingredient lists between the two, and I discovered–to my horror!–that plastic (PET) glitter is listed as an ingredient for all of the shimmer shades (I don’t know if it’s actually in all of them–a few it was visible in but not all of them) in the original launch. There was no plastic (PET) glitter in the current version’s ingredient list.
Nine of the 18 shades were different enough that it made more sense to categorize them as separate (new) shades. The other nine were comparable in color and finish to the original version (even if the performance, texture, payoff, etc. might differ). The Galaxia in the updated Star palette is similar to the one included in the recently-released Retro palette (which now makes sense!).
