Natasha Denona Lila Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) is a new, permanent palette that features 15 eyeshadows–four mattes and the rest ranging from pearl to sparkling, metallic in finish.
I imagine that if you liked Natasha Denona’s Sunset Palette or enjoy the more shimmery shades from the brand’s earlier releases, you’ll enjoy the quality of the Lila palette. It felt comparable to me, and the shades that I did apply (I have not finished wearing them, so I cannot speak on wear) were in line with the formulations used in the Sunset palette. If you tend to incorporate more matte eyeshadows into your looks, you might find that there aren’t enough to support a variety of looks within the palette, and a lot of the shimmers are quite frosted/metallic with some having a bit of larger sparkle to them, which might be prone to fallout. The majority of the eyeshadows seemed to be semi-opaque to opaque in pigmentation with fairly soft textures, though the mattes had a drier, velvety feel–dry but not really in a bad way–and always appeared noticeably darker applied than they did in the pan (the metallics are almost the reverse–more reflective and therefore lighter on).
