Natasha Denona Pastel Palette

Natasha Denona Pastel Palette Review

The Natasha Denona Pastel Palette contains 15 shades of (mostly) pastel eyeshadows in various formulas and finishes. 8 of them are matte (with half being creamy powders and the other half being true powders) and 7 of them are shimmers. Some shimmers are nothing but fine particles and some have larger sparkles mixed in. This is one of their midi-sized palettes which has smaller pan sizes and retails for $65.

Urban Decay Wild Greens Palette

Urban Decay Wild Greens Palette Review

The Urban Decay Wild Greens Palette is a 12 pan palette mainly focusing on greens and oranges along with a few neutrals. There is an even split of mattes and shimmers and also a pretty good balance in the number of shades per color family.

Essence Taupe It Up Eyeshadow Palette

Essence Taupe It Up Eyeshadow Palette Review

Essence recently came out with these little monochromatic six pan palettes. It looks like there are currently 8 of them, all of them with 3 mattes and 3 shimmers. The Taupe It Up one having lots of grey in it seemed most interesting to me.

ColourPop So Jaded Palette

Review: ColourPop So Jaded Palette

The ColourPop So Jaded Palette is an older collaboration between Kathleen Lights and ColourPop. I started doing looks with it in November and at that time it was still (surprisingly) available on the ColourPop website. As far as I can tell, it seems to be discontinued now.

Alter Ego Artemis Palette

Review: Alter Ego Artemis Palette

The Alter Ego Artemis Palette is supposed to be a dupe of Natasha Denona’s Metropolis Palette, not only in the color selection but also in the formulation of some of the cream/powder hybrid shades. There are 28 shades and it retails for $22.
