Natasha Denona 5 Eyeshadow Palette No. 2

20161225_124758I’ve had my eye on the line of Natasha Denona eyeshadow palettes available at Sephora for quite some time.  They’re rather pricey, ranging in price from $48 for the 5 shadow palettes to $239 (eeeek!) for the 28 shadow palette.  I decided that Sephora’s annual Beauty Insider coupon would be the perfect opportunity to give one of the palettes a try.

I decided to go with Eyeshadow Palette 5 – Color No. 2, which is a shimmer finish palette. Color 2 shades are Rosewood, Lavender Gray, Shell, Light Coral and Maroon.

(I decided to take some additional pictures after swatching, so excuse the fingerprints! Lol.)

I swatched the palette on bare skin, with no primer.  A photo with and without flash is shown to capture the true colors.

Overall, I’m really pleased with this palette!  The colors are gorgeous and super pigmented – no fallout with a smooth texture.  So while I probably won’t be investing in the 28 shadow palette, I’ll almost certainly buy another 5 shadow palette.  In this case, the quality seems to, in fact, justify the price.
