Hi all! I hope you are having a great weekend! I am, it’s storming right now in Kansas City, but I have a pretty new palette to play with, so that’s okay!
I bought myself a birthday gift — the Natasha Denona Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette ($65 USD). I’ve been wanting to try a Natasha Denona palette, but the normal sized ones are $129, and I can justify spending that much on eyeshadow. $65 is still a lot, but it is half the price. I have heard that the quality of these shadows are amazing, so I was excited to try it out!
Isn’t she gorgeous?! The shades are:
- Poppy (crimson bronze metallic)
- Citrine (warm yellow matte)
- Phlox (burnt warm crimson metallic)
- Awakening (lavender nude duo-chrome)
- Laurel (peachy champagne metallic)
- Aster (violet mauve duo-chrome)
- Glory (fuchsia matte)
- Azalea (pink copper duo-chrome)
- Morgan (pastel coral creamy matte)
- Agate (champagne apricot metallic)
- Clove (dark maroon creamy-matte)
- Carnelian (burnt light orange creamy-matte)
- Jasper (bright terracotta creamy-matte)
- Morning (light apricot creamy-matte)
- Day Spring (nude bronze metallic)
Here’s a close up of each side of the palette:
And here are the swatches:
Top Row left to right — Poppy, Citrine, Phlox, Awakening and Laurel
All of these shimmers and metallics are gorgeous and so buttery! I had to swatch Citrine twice. It does blend out nicely, I just wanted a very bright swatch so you could see the color. My favorite shade of this row is Awakening. It’s a stunning duo chrome that is described as lavender nude. It looks amazing all over the lid.
Second row left to right — Aster, Glory, Azalea, Morgan and Agate
My favorite shades in the row are Aster and Morgan. Morgan is gorgeous in the crease as a transition shade with any of the other shadows in the palette. It’s so versatile. And Aster is just purpley goodness!
Third row left to right — Clove, Carnelian, Jasper, Morning and Day Spring
Such pretty warm shades! Clove was the hardest shade to blend. It’s a bit patchy. but it is a nice color to deepen a look. Day Spring is a beautiful bronze and is perfect for topping the oranges and yellows.
This palette was quite a splurge, but I’m so glad I got it. The quality of the shadows are so luxe and blend very well. I’m having fun creating bright looks for the summer. I also think that this will work well in the fall, too!
Have you picked up the Sunrise palette or do you have a Natasha Denona palette?
