I’ve been holding back from shopping Natasha Denona products since we all know that this is a pretty expensive brand. However, the products always look amazing and I have been wanting to try the brand for a long time. Now it’s finally time, I bought my first Natasha Denona products and I have tried them a while to give you guys my full thoughts.
I’ve swatched a couple of Natasha Denona products during my trip to NYC last year. Even though everything swatched perfectly and I really liked the products, I couldn’t justify spending $48 (or even $129!) on an eyeshadow palette. Then Beautylish had a Natasha Denona sale and I decided to get 2 products: The Camel Eyeshadow palette and a Blush Duo. Before these products even arrived, the Sephora VIB sale kicked in (check out my huge haul here) and I couldn’t contain myself, so I got another Natasha Denona palette: The Mini Nude palette.
Natasha Denona Products
As I said before, I got three different products all with discount. Here are the prices:
Camel Palette – Normally $48, during the sale $38.40
Blush Duo 02 – Light Antique Rose – Normally $38, during the sale $30.40
Mini Nude palette – Normally $25, during the sale $21.25
Total discount: $20.95
The blush compact was bigger than I expected, which is always a plus. The colors are very stunning. A lighter and a darker pink shade. I found out while using this duo, that I like mixing them together the most. It gives a perfect pinkish color to my cheeks. The pigment is great, it’s a bit softer on the arms than for example a shadow, but that’s good because you don’t want to have a super pigmented blush. It has the perfect payoff on the face and I overall really like this duo!
Even though it’s pretty expensive, I do think it’s worth the money. I would even buy another blush duo in the future.
All the shades in this palette swatched like butter. Very smooth and easy to apply to the arm but also to the eyes, which is the most important of course. I love the pigmentation of all colors in this palette. The top shade is my favorite, it’s so stunning! I’ve made so many lovely daily makeup looks and I’m obsessed!
This palette has a warm undertone, where the Camel Palette is more cool-toned.
Not really sure if my arm wasn’t feeling swatches or if it’s the actual shadow, but the top shade swatched patchy. I didn’t have this problem on my eyes though. All the other shades felt, just like the Mini Nude palette, like butter and apply very easy to my arm and eyes. I love how this palette is more cool-toned, for the days I don’t want a warm-toned look. I also love the shades and how well they blend together.
Overall, I’m satisfied with the palette. However, I’m not sure if I think it’s worth the $48 you pay for it. For that money, you’ll be able to buy 12 pan palettes (for instance, the Norvina palette from ABH contains neutral cool-toned shades as well) with the same kind of colors you’ll get in this 5-pan palette. But I’m pretty sure I’ll be using this palette a lot.
I think the blush duo and the Mini Nude palette are both definitely worth the money. When it comes to the Camel palette, I’m not sure. Even though I know I’ll use it a lot, I think there are more palettes on the market which you can get for the same prices with even more shades in it.
After all, I would totally purchase Natasha Denona products again. I love the Sunrise palette and I really want to try a highlighter as well.
