The new, limited edition, Natasha Denona Matte Safari Palette is ND’s first all-matte eye shadow palette. Furthermore, Natasha’s inspiration for this palette came from colors you would see on Safari. For example, the colors range from rich jewel tones to dusty muted hues. Moreover, Natasha created the palette using her signature matte formula. As a result, the matte eye shadows have the intensity of a cream shadow, with the control of a powder. Above all, the palette is simple to use.

Natasha Denona Matte Safari Palette Packaging
I love the packaging of the Matte Safari Palette. First, the color of the outer box, and the compact, is Safari green. Next, the compact is a hard plastic. Furthermore, the compact has a magnetic closure. This type of closure makes sure the palette doesn’t open in your suitcase, or handbag.
Also, the palette has a full sized mirror. As a result, it is easy to travel with. Above all, the eye shadows come in removable pans.
Therefore, you can move the shadows, or take the shadows out of the palette completely.
Natasha Denona Matte Safari Palette Formula
A few years ago Natasha changed her matte eye shadow formula. Today, the formula is known as her signature matte formula. In other words, the formula has cream to silk coverage. In addition, the shadows have a velvety texture. Also, there is zero powder fallout.
The shadows have rich pigments that create rich hues. Also, the colors are opaque.
The formula gives you the intensity of a cream shadow, with the control of a powder shadow.

Natasha Denona Matte Safari Palette Application Tip
If you want this palette to work the way Natasha designed it to work, apply the shadows using the packing technique. First, grab the powder from the pan. Then, tap off the excess powder. Next, pat the powder onto the lid to press it on. Packing creates maximum impact with minimal blending. Always use an eye shadow base. Also, you can use an eye shadow that is close to your skin color to act as a base. Finally, you can use setting powder as an eye shadow base. However, it doesn’t matter what brush you use as long as you tap and press the shadow onto the eyelid.
