Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatches of the Natasha Denona Retro Eyeshadow Palette.
This palette just launched and I’m not proud to say that I got it 15 minutes after it launched. What can I say, it was love at first sight.
The purple tones are a dream for fall and those glitters spoke to me on a different level. Now, I know this palette is HELLA expensive, it’s actually the most expensive piece in my collection, but I truly think the quality of Natasha Denona’s eyeshadows is next level.
This colour story reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked 3 which was the palette from the range I’ve used the most so I know I’ll get the wear out of it.
You can buy it from Sephora for 65$
The packaging is pink and luxurious, I love it. It’s very sturdy and but not too big, it’s the perfect size to keep in my makeup bag.
On the back, you can see those tiny holes that you can use to depot the shades. So convenient if you are a makeup artist.
Finally, they don’t have anymore that plastic cover with the shade names but the shade names are under each pan (I hated the Sunset palette packaging).
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
All the shades have a medium to high pigmentation, they are really creamy and easy to blend. They don’t have much fall down which is unreal, even the glitters.
Overall the formula is great, I’m not going to lie, it’s incredibly easy to work with and I love that the shades don’t blend together.
What I mean is, after you put plenty on you can still see them clearly. With the majority of affordable palettes, all the shades blend together and become a big muddy mess while here everything is seamless.
All the shades blend easily with brushes. I like to put shimmers on with my finger but these work perfectly even with a brush.
With a primer, they last about 8 hours before creasing.

I’m not going to lie, I’m obsessed with this palette. The packaging is gorgeous, the shade range is perfect for me and the formula is unreal. Guarantee is expensive but I know myself and I love the tones so I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it because there is a great selection of light and dark shades. So if you are like me or you like to collect her palettes, I’d say it’s worth it. Honestly, I’m always for splurging on eyeshadows if you can, but in this case, you have to love purple and pinks.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
