I have the Natasha Denona Star Eyeshadow Palette on my list! It’s available now at Sephora.com and at beautylish.com who by the very way has awesome customer service and super quick shipping. I purchased my Charlotte Tilbury Multi-Miracle Glow and Sugarpill Cosmetics Trinket Liquid Lip Color from them and it showed up on my porch in two days with a handwritten note thanking me for my purchase.

That’s service!

But back to the stunning Natasha Denona Star Eyeshadow Palette!

Everyone keeps raving Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palettes that I felt compelled to pull the trigger on this $169 palette. Because lord knows for that kind of money it possibly applies itself.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    So far it’s the only Natasha Denona palette that has tempted me, but there is no way I am spending $169 on one palette. The eye shadows better apply themselves for that amount of money for 18 shades. That’s more than 2 Viseart palettes and I know the quality of Viseart is worth it. From what I’ve heard about Natasha Denona palettes, not so much.

    • Isabella Muse

      I kept telling myself they aren’t bad individually priced ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Agona

      I’ve heard the same. Plus, why does all her palettes seem to be missing highlight (light toned) shades?

  • Angie

    I did! I hope it doesn’t disappoint. I justified buying it after some people broke down the price and comes out to about $9 an eyeshadow (my excuse for purchasing of course ). I agree that Beautylish has the BEST customer service hands down. The way they package my items makes me feel special.

    • Isabella Muse

      likewise! I kept telling myself they weren’t too badly priced individually ๐Ÿ˜€ Right!??? Their CS is beyond awesome! Other retailers should take notes!

  • Mary Brenner

    Ladies i truly hope with all my heart you love your shadow palettes. I find her brand to be horrifically overpriced horribly over hyped and the product quality to be complete c.r.a.p.
    I have returned everything I have ever purchased from her brand.

  • blee

    This reminds me of all my Inglot pallets , their Freedom System. Have you ever gotten any of them? You pick the colors and they have different size pallets. Great eye shadows ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Bibi Maizoon

    I’m curious to read your review on this palette. ND’s products seem to have very mixed reviews with half of them negative & about half raving how great they are.

  • Jovan

    Thats probably the best eyeshadow palette out now and if you go on Beautylish.com you can make payments of 56 for 3 months.

  • JL

    OK, let admit it, we’re color priment addicts! Ha! I’m waiting for a Beautylish /Fedex arrival Monday and I’m so hoping that I didn’t waste my money. Besides, if it disappoints (meaning less than a 5 to 6 hours wear, it SHALL be returned.

    • JL

      OK, it arrived ( two days late due to a holiday). Well, I’m sorry to say that this palette is VERY problematic and I’m having VERY mixed feelings (should I return it or not) due to these issues: price for the quality, extreme fallout of the shimmer/glitter shades (and there are a number of them, so it makes a big impact on how you do your makeup), not being able to get the pigment to be as strong as when swatched, and lastly not being able to get the glitter shades to work at all without an oil/base (and not even UD primer alone worked).

      Why the mixed feeling you ask with all of these issues and the price? The colors and combinations are really unique and work very well together. (Especially for light to light medium complexions and deep to darker skin tones. I find that as a medium toned person some of the lighter colors, though nice, don’t show up very well.) If you can find matches for each color in MUFE and Dior’s newest Mono Lustrous Smoky, I’d do that.

      However, if you like unique, fall, festive colors (but that wear well even for work), you take time to do your makeup (cleanup of fallout) and you aren’t a novice (there’s a learning curve to find the right brush, use of fingers only for some pigments, plus mixing solution for the glitter ones), AND you don’t mind paying over 170$ (plus if you’re purchasing abroad), then go for it.

      • Isabella Muse

        THANK YOU, JL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that was super helpful! Mine hasn’t arrived yet and now I’m a little worried but this was super, super helpful! ๐Ÿ˜€

        • JL

          I hope my comments help you be able to immediately work with this palette. It took me about 30 minutes or so (and that after watching only one video the day before receiving my palette that discussed the fallout issues). Later I found Natasha Denona”s videos (see below). Definitely look her video on this palette and her other palette videos, because she clearly discusses her techniques for application and in one video even discusses the use of a rounded brush versus the flat and not soft brushes to apply her shadows. I’ll be trying her techniques out tomorrow morning, so that I can decide keeping the palette (the colors are just so beautiful together if you get them to pop!)

            Thanks JL! That was super helpful! I appreciate it so much!

  • Karen

    You talked me into it. Besides with beautylish.com you can make payments so it’s not as much up front

  • Silvia

    This has a beautiful arrangements vivid colors as well as rode golds I really like it but not for that price since I know I’ll be using a few colors out of the stack as it always happens. Even using all I can justify the price. A robot might as well come out of the box and do my smokey eyes. Lol!
    Santa, UD Moondust and this write in your list! Lol!

  • genevieve

    I think the eye shadow pans are quite large, larger than ‘normal’ hence the price per eye shadow. I do think these shades will really suit you and you can make it a lovely Christmas present to yourself too.

  • Kiss & Make-up

    I want to think I need it too… hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ I saw swatches earlier and most of them looked rrrreally nice, especially the metallics/shimmers.

  • Christina

    Looking at swatches online, it looks like the glitter shades and some of the mattes could be problematic.

    Eagerly awaiting your review, Muse!

    • JL

      Well the glitter and shimmer shades need to be worked mostly with the fingers (pressed on the lid) and the mattes were fine, if like Natasha says, you use a rounded brush and circle technique and the bristles aren’t too soft. Really, her videos and other tips shared by Beautylish is what you need to review to learn how to work with this palette. I decided to keep mine (because it’s hefty price wise and I did expect the shadows to just go on like pigmented butter), but I use it daily now (such great looks can be achieved and they look unique). I received my first complement by a male cousin (a little older than me) who was sitting very close to me, so he could see my eye makeup pretty well, and he mentioned that my makeup was done differently and that it looked good. So, take your time and learn to work this palette. It will pay off in how you look for this fall/winter and hopefully even later next year (if not all year round).

      • JL

        Ooops, sorry for the errors, and also I am looking forward to your review as well Isabelle. You’re a little lighter than I am, and I’m looking forward to how you like the colors and your thoughts on the lighter ones.

        • Isabella Muse

          oh no worries I make errors constantly, you’re fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll def have a review up shortly ๐Ÿ™‚ Also reviewing the Huda Eyeshadow Palette too shortly! Curious how the two formulas compare!
