Natasha Denona Sunset Palette Review
April 14, 2019
There are many brands in makeup ranging from cheap to utterly expensive. E.L.F Cosmetics can be as low as $5.00 for an eyeshadow palette. But, other brands like Natasha Denona cost $135.00 for an eyeshadow palette. This article will be a review over the Sunset eyeshadow palette by Natasha Denona and how it compares to others.
Packaging wise, this company is unique. Everything is sturdy with a nice mirror on the inside. But the names of the eyeshadows are on a plastic divider, built into the pallet. There is lots of cushion around the eyeshadows so (hopefully) if the palette is dropped, they will not break.
Now for the actual products. They are highly pigmented. For each shade, the smallest dip in the powder carries a lot of pigmentation. The product is easy to build up, but one swipe can give you instant intense color. Even without a primer or a base, the colors are bright and last a very long time. The glitters in the pallet are equally as amazing. They are already shiny when applied without extra products. They glide on the eye fully pigmented in one swipe. None of the shadows have fallout. There might be a very very small amount of fallout, but there is essentially none. Also, the kick back in pans does not exist, they are compressed very well. The only issues I had were with the glitter shadows. The liquid in them absorbed into the padding around the shades. They act the same just now the palette is a little greasy.
I do not think you have to be $135.00 to get good quality eyeshadows. This is one of the best eyeshadows I have used in general, but it also meets lots of small standards. My only complaints are the liquid soaking into the packaging and there is not really a base shade. Because the shadows are so pigmented, there is not a neutral enough shadow to set a primer/base. There is a light pink shade but even then it was highly pigmented and could not be used as a base. I do recommend this product if you would like to invest money into makeup.
