NATASHA DENONA: A REVIEW OF THE HOLY GRAIL OF PALETTES

A make-up lover’s dream come true, a cult favorite, Natasha Denona’s palettes live up to all the hype and more. For those who are not familiar with Natasha, she’s an internationally renowned makeup artist who started her makeup line in 2016.

With so many new make up product launches I’m forever on the hunt for the perfect palette. That being said, I discovered Natasha DENONA totally by accident as she has a cult following online. Being palette-obsessed, I had to try her palettes. I’m so glad I did as these are hands down the best palettes out there, period. Had so much fun playing with these!

Let’s start with the holy grail of her eye shadow palettes: THE EYESHADOW PALETTE 28. The one featured here is the GREEN/ BROWN PALETTE. It includes 28 super pigmented buttery shades that range from emerald greens, to golds, champagnes and mattes. Its a massive sized palette that can be used on its own, the range of shades varied enough that even the shades that are more out there than what you would normally wear can be layered with the more neutral ones for a gorgeous finish.

Or you can go the complete other direction and add high drama using some of the bolder shades by experimenting with layering the colours on.  The range of shades allows you to create a wide number of different looks; and performance wise this palette delivers. We find that the beauty of this palette is that the range of colours go so well together that you can create looks with amazing ease. The shades are so pigmented the colours give off a beautiful glow and the textures are awesome, gliding smoothly across lids.

The Next palette reviewed is THE SCULPT & GLOW CONTOUR PALETTE. The palette pictured here is the Light/ Medium one.

This palette uses a combination of cream and powder formulas to create a healthy looking glow suitable for all skin types. It was made to be able to create contours in 6 simple steps. Some of the things I particularly love about the palette are that that it contains anti/aging properties such as sunflower seed and jojoba, which makes the textures unique. It’s also made without parabens, and is cruelty free.  Its not thick at all, and the cream contour I found to be very soft and pigmented. The cream products blend really well together and the results are simply stunning. It helps soften and blur fine lines, and some of that is particularly due to the Japanese pressed powder in the palette which is made to blur imperfections and enhance skin tone.  It gives you natural highlight and contouring which is a big plus for me.

Last but not least, We have THE DIAMOND & BLUSH PALETTE for cheeks (the one pictured here is THE DARYA). Like all the other palettes, the packaging is beautifully pink, heavy and feels luxurious.

The palette includes 6 shades, 2 cream formulas and 4 powder. Each is designed to be easily and beautifully layered depending on the effects that you are attempting to create.   It is talc free cruelty free and made without parabens.

The Palette was created with a diamond like sparkle and is really all about the glow. I love how it left my face looking dewy, wet and just sparkly enough.  You can achieve varying levels of shimmer and glow depending on the effects you’re looking for, as it’s a buildable formula that allows you to go from subtle to intense easily. The highlights are so buttery and the effect lasts all day, we’re talking 12 hour work days. I love how every detail was covered when Natasha Denona created this palette, there is a plastic covering on the top row of creams to avoid the powder getting into them, the mirror is quite big which is a huge bonus and a feature I look for quite often to be honest. The size of the pans is really big so you’re absolutely getting so much for your money. The colours are super pigmented and absolutely stunning and the formula is perfect.

I fell in love with this brand so I’m very excited to try Denona’s full range of products.
