One of the very popular of the recent eyeshadow palette launches is the Natasha Denona Sunset Palette. This palette has fifteen shades and the net weights of this sunset palette is 15 x 2.5g or 15 x 0.08oz.
The Sunset Palette costs USD $129 or AUD $185 from Sephora and the Natasha Denona online, natashadenona.com.
The fifteen shades in this palette has four different finishes. They are the matte shades, shimmer shades, duochrome and metallic shades. The colour selection varies from neutral base colours in beige, brown and orange undertone shades to the crimson red and bright orange shades with copper, golden yellow and beautiful mandarin shades in between.
This palette is a limited edition at the moment but I have a feeling that it will become a permanent collection in the future, the same case with Natasha Denona’s larger palettes in the previous releases that all had become permanent collection.
Sunset Palette Shades Are
Atmosphere (120 M) is a matte light copper-brown shade that infused with peachy-pink micro-glitter particles and it is great for an understated look when paired up with matte earthy shades.
Sinai (121 CM) is a matte mid-toned brown with orange undertone that is great for an “outside the box” crease colour. This shade is a perfect companion for many warm shimmers and metallic colours.
Ice Gold (122 K) is a beautiful ice crystal white shade and is perfect for highlighting the inner corner of the eyes.
Mandarine (123 DC) is the most gorgeous and unique metallic light orange-mandarin shade in this palette. It is definitely out of the ordinary and I haven’t seen anything like this shade before in any other palettes in the market.
Bronzage (124 K) is a metallic bronze and it is a great shade for that extra “pop” of colour on the eyelids.
Vulcano (125 M) is a matte medium brown. It is a must in any warm palette to anchor the shimmer and metallic shades on the eyelids.
Aubade (126 K) is a beautiful light metallic orange-peach shade that is also a great “pop” of colour for the eyelids. It can also be used for lining and emphasizing the waterline underneath the eyes.
Horizon (127 CM) is a matte warm bright orange. It can be used to accentuate the crease area as a crease topper shade.
Sundazed (128 K) is beautiful metallic light yellow shade. This shade can be used as “blinding” highlighter on the cheekbones and brow bones. It also can be used for highlighting the waterline area underneath the eyes or even the inner corner of the eyes.
Terra (129 CM) is a warm matte terracotta shade. This shade is quite versatile as we can use it wherever we want to on the eyes. I think it is also a beautiful shade for a blush.
Bermuda (130 CM) is a pale matte peachy pink shade. Perfect for blending and can be used for a matte highlight for the inner corner of the eyes.
Morgana (131 DC) is a beautiful mid-tone duo-chrome peachy-pink colour. It is great for a “pop” of colour on the eyelids.
Panjin (132 CM) is a gorgeous matte vivid red shade with brown undertone. This shade can be used sparingly to create a soft “red-sunset” halo on the eyelids. It can also be used in its full richness and it will be for those who are brave enough to make a statement. This shade is actually a great shade for blush on the cheeks, apply it light-handedly.
Igneous (133 CM) is a matte dark brown (almost black). Another anchor colour to tie those shimmer and metallic shades together.
Sol (134 CM) is a bright matte yellow shade. It can be used as a base layer of the “Sunset” look when layered with the terracotta and bright orange shades. But by itself, this shade is a little tricky to use as it does not complement my Asian complexion very well and make my skin looks sallow.
Natasha Denona Sunset Palette (with Sol as a focus shade)
Overall, this is a fantastic palette and I can’t fault it in any ways. Highly recommended it if you like warm tones and on my skin, this palette performed beautifully. The colours lasted for more than six hours without touch-ups. The eyeshadows are very blendable with smooth texture and buttery feel. I recommend eye primer for the metallic shades just so that there will be no fall-out.
