Natasha Denona Joya Holiday Eyeshadow Palette | REVIEW

I have never bought an eyeshadow palette that is this pricey. Let me preface this review by just saying that. I have always lusted over Natasha Denona eyeshadows. Whenever I look at them on the Sephora website I feel like that emojis with hearts in the eyes. When I saw them release this holiday 5 eyeshadow palette I knew I had to have it. I mean, look at the colours. Are they gorgeous or what? 

Today I’ll be talking all about this very pricey eyeshadow palette and whether or not I think it’s worth it. 

Natasha Denona came out with 2 five pan eyeshadows for the Holidays. One is more colourful and has a purple and blue. The other is this gorgeous cranberry colour scheme. The one I purchased is in Joya.

This palette is formulated with 5 of Natasha Denona’s iconic eyeshadows. They are supposed to have a formula that is long-lasting, super buildable, easy to blend, and have zero fallout. The palette includes a few different formulas including matte, metallics, duo-chromes, and sparkling chroma crystals. The colours from left to right are, Peach Gold, Fuchsia, Gold, Red Grape, and Star Bronze. 

This palette is $61 (CAD) and can be purchaesed on the Sephora website here.

Speaking as someone who has never bought any Natasha Denona eyeshadows, I’ll say I’m  impressed. First off, the packaging it really nice and feels expensive. It is plastic packaging but it’s thick plastic and feels really nice. It’s also a good quality magnetic closure and I don’t think this would open up randomly if you chose to travel with it.

The metallic colours are really bright. I used them first without adding any Fix + to them and they were really sparkly. The shadows are very soft so I could see them breaking easily but all of mine look perfect. All of the shadows applied beautifully and blended like a dream. For my look I used every colour in the palette and it looks great and very seamless. The yellow/gold in the palette is the standout colour for me. It is so bright, buttery, and pigmented. 

This palette screams fall and winter to me. The colours are so rich but vibrant at the same time. They make your eyes look brighter somehow. 

Unfortunately, this palette only comes with 1 matte colour so I did have to go in with a different palette before this for a transition and blending colour. 

Although these shadows are incredible I don’t think they are worth the money. If you have shadows that are similar in colour and texture to these, I don’t think you absolutely need to pick this one up. That being said, I’ll probably be picking up another Natasha Denona eyeshadow palette to see how it is. Purely for reviewing purposes, of course. 

Have you tried Natasha Denona eyeshadows? What did you think?
