Natasha Denona Bronze Palette Review (Swatches + Video)

I have never tried Natasha Denona palettes but I'd heard so many good things about her palette. I was super excited when the Bronze Palette was launched and even more excited when I found out that it was affordable. I deliberated as usual but I ended up caving in and I have no regrets because I have used this palette a whole lot especially in the past month. Right let's get into the nitty gritty...



Packaging
I love the packaging of the Natasha Denona Bronze Palette because you can tell they put in a good amount of thoughts in designing it. The outer packaging is just a regular paper one but it has a great amount of information about each of the eyeshadows. It goes into great detail which I find really refreshing. The palette itself is made of durable plastic and the top cover has a nice glossy finish. It is easy to clean and does not retain stains on it. Inside the palette, all the eyeshadows have the names inscribed clearly. The different thing about this palette is that the back of the palette has little holes which allows you remove the eyeshadows (if you wanted to) and rearrange it or just take your favourite eyeshadow (maybe if travelling). I personally would travel with the palette because the size is not bad at all but I know some people prefer to travel with smaller palettes. I love that it has a god sized mirror and the overall quality of the packaging is fantastic.

I also filmed a video showing what the eyeshadows look like including a mini tutorial. If you prefer to watch videos of eyeshadow palettes, I have you covered and you can watch it above or through this link. I would love it if you also subscribed to my channel here. 

Inside the Palette 
The palette contains 15 gorgeous eyeshadows which are made up of different finishes including matte, metallic, duo chrome and chroma crystal. The Natasha Denona website describes the bronze palette as a palette with groundbreaking buttery smooth hydrating eyeshadow formula in entrancing brown and vibrant bronze shades. I have to agree that the eyeshadows do indeed have such beautiful buttery textures especially the matte formulas. The eyeshadows are made in Italy (as mentioned on their packaging) and are free from alcohol, paraben, mineral oil. They are not tested on animals which is amazing. The net weight of the palette of the eyeshadows is 19.25g . The names of the eyeshadows are inscribed inside the palette and the back of the packaging has the ingredients list of each eyeshadow which I thought was really impressive. The names of the eyeshadows are listed below:

True Copper - a warm copper shade with a metallic finish and I love this on my eyelid
Suntan- a warm medium brown shade which is a perfect crease colour for medium to darker skin tones
Sundown- a medium light-yellow brown which is a perfect crease or transition colour for many skin tones
Deep Dive- a deep brown egg plant shade which can work well in the outer crease 
Rhodium- a medium warm purple shade with a silver reflect 
Magma- a medium dark brown shade which is perfect as a crease, transition and outer crease shade
High Degree- a red copper shade which is perfect for summer and autumn
Alloy- a vibrant bronze shade with a gold reflect 
Ridge- medium warm mustard shade which is great in the crease for a natural look
True Bronze- a bronze shade with a foiled effect
Gloaming - a burnt umber with a light bronze effect 
Paladdium- a warm pinkish taupe shade with a metallic finish
Bliss- a red-pink shade with golden-green reflect
Silk- champagne shade with a foiled effect
Beach- a warm light peachy beige shade

Pigmentation and Wear Power
I have used this palette almost everyday in the past month and I have loved using it. I had to put it away so my other eyeshadows could get a chance too :-). There are 5 matte eyeshadows in the palette and the rest are a mix of metallic, duo chrome and chroma finishes. As already mentioned, I love the texture and pigmentation of the matte eyeshadows and I particularly love that there is not much fall out with them. The metallic shades are my absolute favourites because they are very pigmented and last a great while on my eyelids (with an eyeshadow primer because I always use eyeshadow primers with all my eyeshadows). I am suspecting the chroma crystal shades are True Bronze and Silk and I think these shades are better as topper shades (used on top of other eyeshadows). I have to say I am not such a big fan of them on their own but they do apply better with finger tips or a wet brush. Maybe, I need to find a better way to apply them to love them as much as the others. I was slightly disappointed with Rhodium because I expected a little bit more when I applied it on my eyelid but I think it may work best to create a smoky look (which I rarely do). My absolute favourite shades in the palette are Palladium (perfect for my complexion), High Degree, True Copper, Alloy and Gloaming. I thought Beach and Ridge may work as brow bone highlight shades for me but they are not light enough so instead they work better as crease colours when I want a neutral look. This only means that I can't use this palette alone as I have to include a brow bone highlight shade.

Cost // Link //£60
Natasha Denona Palettes are quite expensive and I have to say their exorbitant prices has prevented me for making a purchase because I could not justify it. However, I am so delighted that I was able to get this palette at a reasonably reasonable price. It is not the cheapest of palettes by any standards but for the quality of both the eyeshadows and the packaging, I have to say it was worth every penny. I have got so much use out of the palette and it is definitely one of my current favourite eyeshadow palettes.

Overall Thoughts
This is my first eyeshadow palette from Natasha Denona and I have to say I am very impressed and it definitely exceeded my expectation. I love the colours, their finishes, the design and functionality of the packaging. You can tell a lot of thought was put into developing this palette and I love the colour story. It's a winner for me and I believe it is worth every penny spent. It would definitely make a perfect gift for Christmas or for a birthday. That's it from me. Have you tried the Natasha Denona Bronze Palette?
