Today, I am reviewing the Star Palette by Natasha Denona. I will say that this palette is $169. Yea, $169. It’s kinda ridiculous. A lot of people love her makeup line. So I was curious about all the hype and I will say the formula is great. The packaging is sturdy and simplistic. I will say after doing research on Natasha Denona I understand the sleekness.
On Sephora’s website, in this palette there are 18 eyeshadows including never-before-seen textures. There are four crystal shadows, nine creamy matte shadows, three metallic shadows and two duo-chrome shadows.
I will say the crystal eye shadows were a little crumbly. Since they act like a pressed glitter, they do have fall out but that is to be expected. If you want a more intense shimmer, spray your brush with Mac Fix+ or Urban Decay All Nighter.
The duo-chromes are really nice. Orion, which is the green duo-chrome, does have a red undertone. It’s really pretty but I felt like they wanted to fall apart when I swatched them.
The metallics were very creamy. I didn’t need to add a setting spray to intensify when using these shadows.
The mattes were really nice but there was a lot of kick back. I didn’t see a lot of fall out and the shadows blended like butter.
All in all, I will say this is a great palette, if you own it. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it, if you don’t. The shadows were very creamy but if you have a heavy hand going into the shadows, besides the matte shades, they could possibly fall apart.
Much love and peace,
