this palette screams “look at me!”
Natasha Denona has been non-stop with the new releases (like the Gold Palette, Safari Palette, Mini Star Palette, etc.) At least this holiday release is her 5 pan size, making it significantly less pricey than one of the giant palettes! Let’s talk about the Natasha Denona Cranberry Palette, shall we? It features four new shades, and one repeat from last year’s Aeris Palette. I am always excited to see reds and cranberries, so those shades definitely drew me in.
As I’m sure you can imagine, the Natasha Denona Cranberry Palette is not your everyday neutral go-to. The three lighter shades are packed with shimmer and glitter. This is a palette you pick up if you want to make a statement. That statement is “look at me!”
As you can see, the Natasha Denona Cranberry Palette has some gorgeous shade options. But here’s the rub- while the shimmery shades literally shine, the red and the cranberry leave a lot to be desired. Using a brush will require a lot of building up. How about your finger? While your fingertip will be packed with color, the payoff on your lid will, for some reason, be mediocre. This can actually be a good thing if the deep shades intimidate you and you want a light wash of color. But I personally expect more from Natasha Denona’s shadows.
So do you need this palette? Not at all. But you might still want it if you are into the color scheme and are willing to work with it. It would also make a lovely gift for a makeup-loving friend.
