Natasha Denona Sunset Palette

 

I’ve been in two minds about getting Natasha Denona’s Sunset Palette, probably one of the most popular eyeshadow palettes of 2017. I wish to god I’d snapped it up in the Beauty Bay summer sale for £54, as it’s probably more worth that than the £100 full price. It makes each pan cost around £8.50, but as with all palettes you wouldn’t buy every shade, there’s always a couple of duffs. Denona has the best beauty PRs of ALL time; she came out of nowhere and was suddenly the toast of the beauty blog/YouTube world, with everyone and their mother shilling her £250 original palettes that had – eek! – talc in them. No high end makeup brand, especially one charging those prices should have such cheap ingredients in them. A few years on, and a statement on her website that she no longer uses talc, Denona has also lowered prices slightly, and still has beauty ‘gurus’ claiming her eyeshadows are the bestest in the land. I’m guessing they were a bit smoother in their talc days, as these aren’t the most buttery shades I’ve used, some of them (like that white below) were quite chalky. That being said, this is a fun palette if you like warm tones, and there’s a good mix of mattes and metallics. I’m really drawn to the yellow (bottom right in the palette), though I have no idea how I’ll use it. I’m slightly disappointed in the Sunset palette, only slightly mind, it still has some great shades, it’s just not the holy grail of eyeshadows that some beauty vloggers have made it out to be – I fell for the hype a little. I probably won’t try Natasha Denona again, purely because the price point isn’t justified by the quality, but I’m not saying don’t try her at all – just keep your eyes peeled for those sales.

    No 100£ palette is worh it haha. I just dont trust those brands that show up out of nowhere thinking 80£ for a product is a normal price. It is not and you cannot skip the building yourself stage that all good brands had to go through.

    That is so expensive for a palette! For that price I’d want to get colours I could wear every day and these colours look a bit out there for me. Such a shame!
