Let me start off by saying I don’t have much to say, in that the photos included in this post should speak for themselves! Natasha Denona’s newest arrival, the Lila Palette, is a fifteen-pan array of eye shadow goodness. Centered around jewel-toned purples, it is sure to become the favorite of many.
I’ve had a lot of success with Natasha Denona shadows in the past so as you can imagine, I had high expectations for this newest beauty. The fifteen shades come in four finishes: matte, duo-chrome, metallic and chroma crystal. I’m going to included shade descriptions, below, which I’ve stolen directly from Beautylish:
- Per Se 135 CM: Smoky lilac with a Creamy Matte finish
- Viola 136 M: Magenta violet with a Metallic finish
- Amara 137 CM: Rusty berry with a Creamy Matte finish
- Cyclone 138 DC: Pink copper with a Duo-Chrome finish
- Nude Vino 139 CM: Tan mauve with a Creamy Matte finish
- Layla 140 M: Deep brown mauve with a Metallic finish
- Amethyst 141 M: Cool purple with a Metallic finish
- Magnetic 142 M: Bright fuchsia with a Metallic finish
- Magnolia 143 K: Peach champagne with a Chroma Crystal finish
- Nude Mauve 144 CM: Dusty mauve with a Creamy Matte finish
- Juneau 145 S: Sheer icy lavender with a Metallic finish
- Livid 146 DC: Silver amethyst with a Duo-Chrome finish
- Purpure 147 M: Berry burgundy with a Metallic finish
- Dragon Bite 148 DC: Green red with a Duo-Chrome finish
- Helio 149 M: Soft rose with a Metallic finish
I had a lot of fun swatching this palette. As always, swatches were completed with a flat synthetic eyeshadow brush. No primer was used for these swatches.
At $129, this is not what one might call “affordable” or even “a good deal.” However, this is a quality palette that feels sturdy and will last a while. So be sure to take a peak if you’re in a “treat yo’self” mood!
