Natasha Denona is an international makeup artist with her own makeup line, based in Israel. Her line is making its way to the US, and beauty bloggers and vloggers that have gotten their hands on her makeup have all raved about her products, especially the eyeshadows.
Beautylish now carries Natasha Denona! They started with the face products, and the eyeshadows will fully launch in February. I did purchase her Face Glow Foundation and will review it soon. Some lucky individuals received Natasha Denona palettes in Lucky Bags earlier this month. I was lucky enough that a friend wanted to trade her Natasha Denona palette for the Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel quad I received (which I already owned).
So now I have the Natasha Denona Palette 5 Eyeshadows in Palette 9! It is absolutely beautiful. The packaging is pretty cheap (just plastic) for the $48 price tag, as many reviewers have noted. It is sleek and minimal though, and could potentially be taken when traveling, though there is no mirror.
Update: I do not recommend traveling with Natasha Denona shadows. They are far too delicate.
The eyeshadows are actually pressed pigments, and are very smooth and pigmented when I swatch with my fingers. The shades in Palette 9 are all metallic, but they’re not really the same in terms of sparkle/shine. Shades 45M Industrial and 18M have sparkles in them, while 44M Indian Gold is more mildly shimmery than 10M Aluminum and 14 M Antique Olive.
The shadows apply easily with a brush. They are pigmented with one stroke and blend nicely. I noticed minimal fallout with the glittery shades. The only complaint I have is that they crease. I have very hooded eyes, so most shadows crease on me, but since these are so pigmented, there is a ton of transfer. I am still working on primer combinations to combat this issue. Even with the transfer issue, there is still beautifully in-tact color on my lids until I remove it at night.
Beautylish had a “secret shop” to sell limited stock of Natasha’s shadows. I purchased the large purple-blue palette that has 28 shades (reviewed here). I am so ready and willing to try more!
Sephora now sells Natasha Denona as well! Eyeshadow palette 5’s here.
