I first tried Natasha Denona Eyeshadows around eighteen months ago, and I Instantly fell in love with the super hyped formula. The Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette launched back in March, and I knew I had to have it.
I already own two of the Natasha Denona full size five pan palettes in 08 and 11, and I absolutely love them, so I knew I’d love the formula of the Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette.
Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette
The full size Natasha Denona five pan eyeshadow palettes are £41 each, and the shadows are 2.5g each which is almost double the size of a full size MAC eyeshadow. Natasha Denona launched a range of miniature palettes which are themed on her larger, full sized palettes but the Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette is a one off palette, which isn’t themed around any other palette.
The Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette is £22 and still contains five shades, but the pans are considerably smaller at 0.8g per shade. So the mini palettes don’t offer amazing value for money, but when do you ever finish an eyeshadow palette? I know I never do as I’m always rotating my palettes.
“Mini palette featuring five dreamy colors for romantic retro looks. The shades include a dazzling neutral duo-chrome, a velvety metallic gray, two creamy neutral mattes, and a rosy pink metallic— inspired by the color theme of the 60s. Perfect for a soft pastel look & everyday wear.” – Natasha Denona
The Mini Retro palette contains the following shades;
- Galaxia – light nude with green and blue sparks (Existing shade in Star Eyeshadow Palette)
- Industrial – green taupe with silver reflects (Existing shade in 28 Eyeshadow Palette)
- ’60s – greenish grey (NEW shade)
- Vintage Taupe – antique rose (Existing shade in Tropic Eyeshadow Palette)
- Pixie – pink with champagne shift (NEW shade)
I cannot rave about this Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette enough. It’s absolutely stunning with an amazing formula. Pixie is an incredible multi-dimensional duochrome shade which works as a sparkly topper for any other shade, and I would love Natasha Denona launch a five pan palette just containing this formula as it’s so, so pretty.
Some see as the Natasha Denona eyeshadows as being overhyped, but they’re really not. I just love the mix of pinks and greens within this palette, and it’s amazing that it was only £22 and I have bought a few more of the mini palettes which I’ll also feature very soon.
