Natasha Denona Cranberry (2019) Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.4 oz.) has arrived in its permanent, white-hued packaging (compared to its special packaging from last holiday), and the formulas were tweaked. Sakura and Blossom have been changed from the Cream-Powder formula to a pure powder form, though the back of the packaging still listed them as "CP," the ingredient list was quite close to Creamy Matte shades released in the last few months. That being said, I noticed ingredient changes in Daisy, Botanic (which changed from 192M to 192DC), and Nude. I have never seen a brand tweak and alter their eyeshadow formula as often as Natasha Denona.
The color, finish, and overall performance was pretty on the nose for Daisy, Botanic, and Nude, while Sakura and Blossom were substantially different in feel and application but also in color. Sakura is deeper, pinker, and fully matte, while Blossom is deeper plum with a matte finish instead of a deeper, pink-red with a subtle sheen. I actually liked the original Cream-Powder formula, but I can see why some did not, and I do think that the composition is more versatile now that both shades are distinct shades.
