It’s that time of year again! It seems like the new Holiday 2019 Palettes are coming out earlier and early. For one thing, we haven’t even had Halloween yet! Also, Natasha recently released her new fall Metropolis Eyeshadow Palette. Last week was the launch of the Natasha Denona Holiday Makeup 2019 releases. This year, ND’s theme for Holiday 2019 is the color Gold. Actually, when you think of the holidays, Gold is one color that comes to mind. As a result, Natasha Denona Holiday Makeup 2019 includes two gold palettes, Mini Gold , and Gold Glow Highlighter Duo.
First, the ND Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette is a mini version of last year’s Gold Palette. As a matter of fact, Natasha’s Gold Palette was part of last year’s holiday 2018 collection. Although, the mini version has 5 eyeshadow shades. In addition, four of the shades are brand new. Only 1 shades is a repeat. Moreover, the shades featured are gold and green hues that come in matte, shimmer and duo-chrome finishes.
Second, the Gold Glow Palette is a highlighter palette. It has two gold highlighters. Although, each highlighter has its own formula. You can find the Gold Glow Highlighter Duo Palette at Sephora and on ND’s Website. This palette is a limited edition, and it sells for $42.

Natasha Denona Holiday Makeup 2019 Formulas
Glow Gold Highlighter Duo
To begin with, each of the two highlighters comes in its own formula.
First, the formula for the warm gold highlighter is Natasha Denona’s Super Glow. To explain, the Super Glow Formula is super soft, and lightweight. Also, the formula melts into the skin. Furthermore, it gives a glass-like stobing effect. Ingredients include a high concentration of chroma crystals mixed with crushed pearls. As a result, the highlight you’ll create is an intense, three-dimensional ethereal glow.
Second, the other highlighter’a formula is a golden sparkling diamond powder. Furthermore, the diamond powder has a sheer base. Also, it has what looks like thousands of tiny, twinkling diamonds. In addition, when you apply Diamond Powder to your face, it appears to look wet.
Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette
First, the palette features rich, pressed pigments. As a result, the shades give you maximum color payoff. Each formula is smooth and hydrating. As a result, the shadows’ texture is exceptional. Also, the shadows wear comfortably, all day. The Cream to Powder matte shades are smooth and creamy. Also, there is little to no kick back or fall out. Second, the shimmers are easy to blend. Also, they feel creamy and buttery.
All of the colors layer beautifully. And, they blend out seamlessly.
Natasha Denona Holiday Makeup 2019 Mini Gold Palette Shades
There are four new shades in the Mini Gold Palette. They are Lodge 283 CP, D’Or 284 M, Bia 285 CP, and Antheia 286 DC. The one shade that I call an oldie, but goodie, is Dark Sepia 47P.
Lodge 283 CP
First, Lodge, a light tawny brown shade, has a matte finish. Lodge is a Cream to Powder matte shade. I would use Lodge in the crease, and as a transition shade. The reason is, Lodge creates a shadow. So, I would use Lodge first, in the crease. Then, I would apply the eyeshadows that will create your look.
Dark Sepia 47 P
Second, Dark Sepia, a dark taupe with a pink shimmer, has a sparkly finish. Also, Dark Sepia is an existing shade. I would use Dark Sepia in the outer corners of the eyes. Also, use this dark, sparkling shade to line your lower lash lines.
D’ Or 284 M
D’ Or, a vibrant yellow gold shade, has a high shine finish. Above all, D’ Or is the star of the Gold Mini Palette. For one thing, the gold foiled shade is my favorite shade in the palette. In fact, this is the shade I bought the palette for! First, I would put D’ Or in the inner corners of my eyes. Next, I would use this rich gold shade all over my eyelids.
Bia 285 CP
Next, Bia, a dirty olive green shade, has a matte finish. First, use this green shade as a transitional shade. Therefore, I would wear it in the crease, Also, use it to transition D’ Or. I love the gold foiled shade transitioned with the Bia dirty olive green.
Antheia 286 DC
Finally, Antheia, a taupe shade with green reflects has a duo-chrome finish. Antheia is a golden green shade that has a sparkly finish. Wear Antheia on the outer third of your eyelids. Also, use Antheia in your crease. Then, use it to line your lower lash lines. Also, mix this golden green sparkly shade with D’ Or, the gold foiled shade, to create a green-gold foiled eye.
Natasha Denona Holiday Makeup 2019 Mini Gold Palette and Glow Gold Highlighter Duo……Last But Not Least
To start with, the Mini Gold Palette is a great stand alone palette. So, if you already have the 15 pan Gold Palette, (last year’s Holiday Palette), you could get this one too. The reason is, four of the shades in the Mini are brand new. Also, the Mini palette compliments the ND Gold Palette. Another reason you would want this palette is, it is a great way to sample this luxury brand, at an affordable price. $25 is much easier to part with than $129 dollars! Finally, it is much easier to travel with a mini palette than it is to take up room in your suitcase for a large 15 shade palette!
Finally, there is nothing prettier than Gold for the holidays! For one thing, Gold is an extra special color for all your holiday parties. For example, you could do an entire gold look. Use the Glow Gold Highlighter Duo, and do up your cheek bones, brow bone, and anywhere else you want a gold highlight. Then, do a foiled gold eye. It screams New Years Eve!
