The Holiday Palettes are coming out in full force. I just received the two Natasha Denona Eye Shadow Palettes for Holiday 2017, limited edition 01 Joya, and 02 Aeris. Each Palette houses five eyeshadows. Every shadow comes in one of the two formulas and four finishes that Natasha created.
Natasha Denona Eye Shadow Palettes : The Formulas
Natasha Denona is known for having superior quality products, including her famous eye shadow palettes. In short she created two eye shadow formulas, the original Signature Formula and the new Cream/Powder Hybrid Formula. Furthermore the new cream/powder hybrid is richly pigmented, covers like a cream, and is long lasting like a powder.
As a result the Cream/Powder hybrid formula blends well. Therefore it is buildable, covers eyelid with opaque color in a single swipe, creates eye dimension. Most noteworthy, there is no fallout. The original Signature formula is buildable and blends well. Consequently, there is some powdery fallout.
There are four gorgeous finishes for the shadows in all of the Natasha Denona Eye Shadow Palettes.
The Sparkling Finish
The sparkling finish is created with prismatic chrome crystals in the formula. So these crystals work to scatter light for a multidimensional, sparkling shine.
The Creamy Matte Finish
Natasha’s matte eyeshadows feel creamy which is not the norm. Especially relevant from my experience, the majority of matte eyeshadows I’ve tried feel dry. Hence Natasha’s matte shadows are easy to work with and easy to blend.
The Metallic Finish
The Metallic finish is a reflective finish with luster and a glossy-like gleem. In particular Micro-fine pigments and minerals come together and create a liquified metallic look on the skin.
The Duo Chrome Finish
Natasha’s Duo Chrome Finish is my favorite eyeshadow finish. First, Natasha hand mixes the reflective duo-pigments herself, which results in a celestial sheen. As a result Duo chrome is amazing. Specifically the movement of your head determines which of the duo shades is visible. If you shift to one side, the shade you thought was predominate transformations and the other color (of the duo) becomes the predominant color. Most of all it works magically as a special effect.
The Joya 01 Eye Shadow Holiday Palette
Joya is a “twist” on the rose gold color family since it has one of a kind pinks, and berries with a pop of gold.
From left to right the 5 eye shadow shades are:
Peach Gold 135 DC – a golden pink peach with a duo chrome finish in the ND Signature Formula.
Fuchsia 136 CP -a bright fuchsia with a matte finish in the New Color/Powder Hybrid Formula.
Gold 137 CP – yellow gold with a metallic finish in the New Color/Powder Hybrid Formula.
Red Grape 138 M – a deep berry maroon shade with a metallic finish in Natasha’s Signature Formula.
Star Bronze 139 CP – a rosy-bronze shade with a sparkling finish in Natasha’s New Color/Powder Hybrid Formula.
The Aeris 02 Holiday Eye Shadow Palette
The Aeris Eye Shadow Palette includes warm bronzed tones and a splash of icy blue.
The shades from left to right are:
Nude 140 CP – a sheer peach-beige with a sparkling finish in the new color/powder hybrid formula.
Red Bronze 141 K – a red bronze shimmer with a duo chrome finish in Natasha’s Signature Formula.
Burnt Terracotta 142 CM – a burnt orange clay with a matte finish in Natasha’s Signature Formula.
Ice Blue 143 CP – an icy blue with a metallic finish in Natasha’s New Cream/Powder Hybrid Formula.
Peach Bronze 144 CP – copper peach with a sparkling finish in Natasha’s New Cream/Powder Hybrid Formula.
