So um…. This Happened!….


…. And I regret nothing!

Some of you may recognise the palette that I want to review today as one of the most expensive eyeshadow palettes on the market; the Natasha Denona 28 Palette. At it’s regular price this would have cost me £199. Luckily Beauty bay had a sale on, which knocked a fair amount of the price, making it a tad bit more affordable. I’m still refusing to look at the receipt.


I have had my eye on these palettes since Tati reviewed them last year. There are two of these larger palettes however I decided to go for the Purple Blue palette since it had a lot of colours that I would use regularly (you guys know that I love a good turquoise).

You get 28 eyeshadows for your money, and the pans are a decent size. I love the white leather packaging; yes it gets grubby, but it easily wipes clean. There is a decent mirror inside, and you can keep it clean because there is a plastic sheet separating the mirror from the shadows which I actually really like; and this plastic insert has the shade names on it.

Left to right: Satin Skin, Electric Violet, Golden Rose, Petroleum Blue, Calypso Blue, Cool Plum, Grey Brown

Is this palette worth the money?

Yes the shades are beautiful and they are really richly pigmented without putting too much effort into the application. Every shade, no matter what finish it is blends like a dream. I also found that the glitter and chrome shades did not give much fallout, which is amazing. The mattes are just as pigmented as the glittery shades, and you only have to dip the brush in lightly to get enough shadow for a simple eye look.

However, I’m not sure why the palette is so expensive since a lot of the ingredients are no different to the ones that you would find in any other eyeshadow palette. There is even talc which is something that you tend to find in cheaper eyeshadows.

However these are nitpicks. I do love the palette, although I do wish it was cheaper. I would recommend waiting until it is on sale again if this is something that, like me, you’ve had your eye on for a while. The colours truly are beautiful, and every shade within is something that I will use.

Have you tried any of Natasha Denona’s products? Are there any that you enjoy using?
