Natasha Denona Palette 09 Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a dirty, pewter and green kind of color story with five, shimmery shades; two of the shades seemed to have finer sparkle to them as well. The shades have changed both in texture but in some instances, in color as well, in the current iteration of the palette compared to the original launch of the shades. The actual performance was significantly better than I originally experienced, though.
Back story: I purchased all of the 5-pan palettes a few months ago to re-review because if there’s a brand that has a more constant, evolving formula… it is Natasha Denona (the ingredient list is substantially different today compared to the original release and even from a few years ago). I have better experiences with the more updated formulas, so it seemed like a good way to test the current formula as well as get updated swatches. This week, the brand is running buy one, get one free on the 5-pan palettes… so… here we are… frantically reviewing them! Leave a comment with which one of the original 13 you are most desperate to see re-reviewed, and I will endeavor to make it so!
