First, the New Natasha Denona Midi Retro Palette is a complementary palette to the Natasha Denona Mini Retro Palette. Therefore, you can use both Midi Retro and Mini Retro Palettes together to build out the color story for more shade choices. Specifically, the color story for the new 15 shade midi palette consists of pink, burgundy and mauve eyeshadows. Even more, the Mini Retro Palette eyeshadows are dreamy pastel shades of taupe-silver metallic, and grey shades have green undertones.
When I first, saw the Midi Retro Palette, my first thought was, where are the green eyeshadows? Indeed, mini retro rounds out the pinks, burgundy and mauve shades in the Midi Retro Palette. As a result, both palettes compliment each other. Go ahead, and use them together! Furthermore, the Midi Retro Palette, is the retro version of the cool, neutral Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette.
This is not another bright pink color summer palette. Instead, the New Midi Retro Palette is your perfect fall/winter/nighttime look palette. This is a sophisticated, romantic, rosy palette. The eyeshadows are Natasha’s signature buttery, smooth, hydrating eyeshadow formula. The formula is made with the highest pure color pigments. And, the dazzling shades are made from chroma crystals, and luminous mineral pearls.
Also, the eyeshadow palette comes in a brushed mauve-pink box. The 15 eyeshadow shades come in a a plastic mauve-pink case. The case has a magnetic closure. Inside the case, underneath the lid, is a large mirror. On the other side of the palette are the 15 eyeshadows, in three rows of five shades. A quick word about the placement of the shades. For one thing, Natasha makes it easy for you to create eyeshadow looks. One look is to use quadrants to create a look with 4 shades. Another way to create a look is to use rows of 3. Or, you can use shades that are close to the other shades you are using. It is really easy to figure out. Last, the holes on back of the case allow you to use a sharp object, and pop the shades out. Then, you can arrange them however you want.
