I love when Natasha Denona comes out with mini versions of her large palettes. One reason is, the size of the mini palette is great for travel. Another great reason is the price is right. In other words, instead of paying $100 or more, you get to try the winning shades of the original, in a mini version. Finally, now that large palettes are the rage, we all have so many of them. As a result, we also have so many more eyeshadow shades than ever before. Do you really use all of the shades from a large eyeshadow palette? No! Therefore, mini versions of the large palettes cut out the riff raff, a lot of unnecessary colors. In fact, if you are looking for the other colors, try other larger than life palettes. The Natasha Denona Mini Tropic Palette is the newest mini to date.
Moreover, the five mini shades are, in fact, the five shades on the bottom row of Natasha’s Original Tropical Palette! Hence, these are the vibrant, tropical, shades – the Palette’s namesakes! Therefore, the first two rows of the Original Tropical Palette are warm neutral shades and pastels. And, these aren’t the tropical shades you were buying, in the first place! Here, you are getting tropical shadows. Isn’t that what you signed up for when you purchased the original palette? As a result, the Natasha Denona Mini Tropical Palette makes a lot of sense!
Natasha Denona Mini Tropic Palette Packaging
To begin with, the ND Mini Tropic Palette comes in an acid green box. Furthermore, the five shades are on the front of the box. Also, the shadows are .028 oz. Moreover, the eyeshadow compact’s hard plastic compact has an acid green base. And, the top of the compact is clear. In this way, you can see the five tropic shades through the lid of the compact.
A hinge that holds the compact together. First, when you shut the lid, the the hinge makes the lid stop when it is halfway down.
Then, you need to push the lid until you hear the lid slap down on the base. In other words, the hinge keeps the compact tightly closed.
Natasha Denona Mini Tropic Palette Formula
First, Natasha Denona is a Pro makeup artist. Hence, her palettes are pro quality. And, the five shadows in the Mini Tropic Palette come in unique finishes. Concentrated pigments are what makes up the eyeshadow formula. Also, the formula includes finely milled minerals, mica and pearl. Furthermore,, moisturizing Botanical Oils create the shadow’s creamy texture. Also important, the shadows have no fallout.
Finally, the Mini Tropic Palette’s eyeshadows are in three finishes. First, the creamy matte finish, an opaque, no shine color, has a velvety feel. Second, the Metallic finish, a reflective finish, has a metal-like gleam. Last, the sparkling finish, a pearlized finish that has a luminous luster.
Natasha Denona Mini Tropic Palette Shades
To start with, the Natasha Denona Mini Tropic Palette has five mini shades. Although, these shades are the bottom row of the Original Tropic Palette that has 15 shades. Actually, the bottom row of the original palette is the only row with tropical shades. The other two rows had warm neutral shades and pastels.
First, Mint Frost, a pastel turquoise shade, has a sheer, high shine finish. Also, Mint Frost has a smooth, creamy texture. And it will give you great coverage. I would wear this beautiful turquoise color all over my eyelids. Also, I would wear this as a topper over another shade. And, sheer it out, and wear it to highlight your inner eye, and your brow bone.
Second, Exotic, an emerald green/teal shade, has a metallic finish. Also, Exotic is opaque. And it feels smooth and creamy. I would line my upper and lower lash lines with Exotic.
Third, Laguna, a shade of aqua/blue, has a creamy matte finish. Laguna is opaque. And, it feels soft, and velvety.Also, it is easy to blend. I love Laguna on the eyelids, as an eyeliner on the upper and/or lower lash lines. Also, wear Laguna on the outer corners of your eyes.
Fourth, Tiger Lily, a vibrant royal blue shade, has a metallic finish. So, Tiger Lily, my favorite color in the palette, is giving a lot of people a lot of trouble. To begin with, Tiger Lily is hard and compact in the pan. Other reviews have stated that Tiger Lily “sealed up.” As a result, it was difficult to pick up the shade, from the pan, to brush, to skin. However, I used my fingers to pick up and apply Tiger Lily. It wasn’t, by any means, that bad. Yes, it was a tiny bit patchy. However, it is buildable. I would wear Tiger Lily as a liner on my lower and upper lash line. I love this shade so much, I would wear it all over my eyelids. In order to make Tiger Lily work, all you’ll need to do is pat the shade onto your skin.
Finally, fifth, Zena, a pastel violet shade, that has a creamy matte finish. Furthermore, Violet is a soft, silky shade. And, it is a rich-looking color. It gives a good coverage. I would like Violet on my eye lids. Also, I would wear Violet, and use one of the darker shades on the outer corners of my eyes, and in my crease. Or I would wear violet from my crease to my brow bones. Then, I would wear one of the other shade on my eye lids.
Natasha Denona Mini Tropic Palette Last But Not Least…….
I love the tropical colors in this palette! Also, I love that there are no warm neutral shades in it. The reason I don’t want any more warm neutrals is, I have too many already! And you probably do too! So, when this palette said ” I’m Tropical”, it really meant it!.
Moreover, you can’t please everybody all of the time. I think four of the shades had perfect formulas. And, Tiger Lily, which is my favorite color, should be used with your finger. Then, pat the color into your skin. Additionally, if you must, go over it again! It works!
