Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette : Swatches, Dupes & Review

PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS
Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette in 120M Atmosphere, 121CM Sinai, 122K Ice Gold, 123DC Mandarine, 124K Bronzage, 125CM Vulcano, 126K Aubade, 127CM Horizon, 128K Sundazed, 129CM Terra, 130CM Bermuda, 131DC Morgana, 132CM Panjin, 133CM Igneous, & 134CM Sol. 
The Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette retail for $129US or $166CAN for 15 x 0.08 oz/ 2.26 g Eyeshadow worth of product at Sephora (Beautylish is $174.23CAN). It's worth noting that the eyeshadows break down to $8.60US and $11.07CAN per pan in this palette.

The Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 retail for $48US or $61CAN for 5 x 0.08 oz/ 2.26 g Eyeshadow worth of product which breaks down to $9.60US and $12.20CAN per pan in this palette. So you're saving a $1 roughly per shadow in this 15 pan palette compare the 5 pan shadow palettes. The single shadows retail for $25US to $29US each for the same size eyeshadows so they feel super overpriced as a brand and closure to a higher end luxury brand rather than a makeup industry brands she technically is. But these are made in Italy and you are paying more of the craftsmanship here much like the Viseart palettes made in France.

Products: 
The shadows fall into 4 formulas. The Shimmer/Pearl formula that is 120M Atmosphere and 122K These shades are very smooth in texture on the skin and apply beautifully with full pigmentation.

The Duo Chrome shades of 123DC Mandarine and 131DC Morgana has a smooth shimmer finish that is fully pigmented similarly to the rest of the Shimmer/Pearl formula shades.

Then we get to the High Shine Metallic ones of 128K Sundazed, 126K Aubade, and 124K Bronzage which are more like a pressed pigment with larger shimmer particles that still need a primer for slight fall out reasons but are so smooth to work with and blend out with full pigmentation.

The last is the Matte formula which is 121CM Sinai, 129CM Terra, 125CM Vulcano, 33CM Igneous, 130CM Bermuda, 134CM Sol, 127CM Horizon, & 132CM Panjin. These eyeshadows are very smooth but not creamy in texture with full pigmentation and easy to blend and di have some slight kick up. Some of the shades are almosts a satin in texture but not quite.

Wear: I get a good 6-8+ hours without a primer. With a primer it all day with these shades. ;)

Packaging: This palette a metallic vinyl cover embossed with the product name, nice mirror with a magnetic closure similars to Inglot freedom palettes. The trays are foam with a plastic finish for easy cleaning. I personally find the plastic divider with the shade name annoying but it easy to work around.

The weight of this palette is really nice! It's about the same or lighter than my Too Faced Chocolate palettes and Urban Decay Naked Palettes even though it's larger.

Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette and Coastal Scent 252 palette.
The Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette has every shade in the palette as a single pan shadow from the brand so I wanted to see if there were enough dupes to build this palette but it still lacks terracotta shades and desaturated metallic that the Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette has.

All my closest finds come from Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette Tray 2 except one.

Verdict:
Natasha Denona is scary to buy into and this was for sure the most expensive single item purchase I've ever bought (with exception of my Yaby palettes but you can get those on sale or at profetional dicount rate at IMATS like I did). BUT this is in line for the price I would pay for making up my own Inglot palettes at $12CAN per shadow. (I promise to review my Inglot shadows someday in this or next year)

I keep going back to Inglot because the quality of their shadows are that good and you get large pans, but are actually the same amount of product as the Natasha Denona pans.

I really like this palette, I've been trying to fault if for anything other than that I wish they swapped out either 121CM Sinai or 129CM Terra with a peach or a light nude because the shades are just too similar. But the quality is there for all the shades so it a gets a huge thumbs up for me.

But again the price is steep so that why I try to give as many dupes I could find even if they were like 75% close to some shades. Some of the metallic shades I just did not have anything similar enough.

Out of all the rosy and terracotta palettes out there right now this is the most diverse palette to create multiple looks in the warm family. It's not a rosy palette like the Anastasia Modern Renaissance, or as terracotta as the Too Faced Sweet Peach or Urban Decay Heat.

I would consider getting another palette of hers in this size if they did a Twilight palette in cool tones. And in simply a matter of the Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 28 costing $305CAN of only $0.15 saving per pan compared to this one. The shadows have to be all excellent for me to drop my money on it like this one. ;)
