Rated 4.82 out of 5 stars
Natasha Denona has once again knocked it out of the park in terms of eyeshadow quality! This palette makes stunning looks, and is versatile enough to act as a daytime/office appropriate palette as well as an evening/more bold palette. Blendability is a solid 5 stars as well as intensity of pigment, which makes me suspect that even though this palette leans lighter than some of her others, it will likely work on most skin tones. However! I do have to comment on my surprise in terms of the tone of this palette. In the promotional images, I had my heart set on making looks based around the shade Delilah, which looked nothing short of the silver shadow of my dreams! Imagine my surprise when I received the palette and in my warm kitchen lighting, instead of silver, this shade looked like a warm mauve!? Once I worked with the palette (and that shade), I discovered it CAN look silver, but depending on the lighting, it can look warmer as well. I've come to conclude that this palette is a neutral-leaning palette with a chameleon-like quality. In warm, indoor lighting, the shadows look as though they lean warm. In cool, studio lighting, the shadows look much more cool. Tbh...it's kind of a neat affect. BUT I want to mention it in case you're like me and start planning your looks before you've even placed your order lol. Other shadows were a bit more predictable. Wit is indeed a warmer peach shade, and mesh is a cool taupe, as I expected. I've made both more warm looks as well as more cool looks with the palette itself. Bottom line being: it's a beautiful palette, but I think our screens can make it more challenging to predict the tones in advance! Gifted by Natasha Denona, all opinions are my own.
This is the second time I have tried an ND pallet. The first Pallet I tried was the Love pallet and I hated it. I did not find the shimmers anything special and the mattes were okay. When this pallet dropped, my mouth dropped. I love neutrals and the colors in this pallet looked so beautiful that I decided I wanted to give her eyeshadow pallets another try. People keep raving on about how amazing her formula is. Once again the mattes are okay and I found the shimmers to be disappointed and dusty. There was one shimmer I thought was special which is Muse. I wish there were more shades similar to that. None of the other lighter shimmers showed up on my skin, they dusted away. I am fair skinned. Not worth the money.
I like my ABH pallets, along with Lunar Beauty Nude prism pallet. The neutral shimmers in the desert lights pallet feom flower beauty are exceptional and I was expecting ND shimmers to be better but it doesn't compare at all.
I will say that I have three of her I need a nude lipsticks and those are beautiful. I do recommend those.

I love this pallet the colors are beautiful but the eyeshadows are so small fir the price, love the shimmer… other than that love it!

They are beautiful, blend like a dream and for my 58 year old peepers, the formula is perfection. My gripe is quality control. I have 9 ND palettes. I love all of them but every single one, with the exception of the Glam Palette, either has pans that fell out or crumbling mattes and shimmers. I should take all of them back for exchanges.

I really love this pallet. How the eyeshadow looks on the eye. I love that you can pop out your favorite shawdows and put them all together.

This is a lovely palette in terms of formula & color story. However, some of the special shades (delilah, sheen, & mia) & whisper are all only 1/4 to 1/3 full & dip down like someone used them & was about to "hit pan". This is really non-luxury $$ saving tactic for a luxury brand. At this price tag I should be receiving full pans of product. For that reason, I would not recommend this palette & hope it isnt indicative of future palettes this brand offers. I have all of the Natasha Denona midi palettes & would buy more, but if this happens again I will move on from this brand.

I returned this today after an eyeshadow fell out. I had used it a handful of times. I was underwhelmed when I received it and didn't use it right away which surprised me. I saw myself reaching for the same 4 shades and that made me reflect on the purchase. the eyeshadow falling was the icing on the cake. for the price that should not happen. I didn't have issues with application. it did wore off at the end of the day in the crease area. I do like the color story and may repurchase during a good sale
Ivy from Philadelphia, PA
This palette just isn't for me, though I know it's gotten a lot of love online. The shimmers are too one-note in my perspective, and they all have a silverly undertone that makes them look the same on my medium-tan skin.
I also wish there was a bit more variation in the mattes, I understand if they're on the lighter side but Natasha usually has a good eye for color so it's a shame that instead of a palette that could've had at least one standout matte to differentiate the look (for example, the eggplant matte in the Bronze palette), it doesn't really feel like you can do more than 2 looks in the palette - a cool pink or a cool brown - despite it being 15 shades. I returned as I don't see myself getting my money's worth here.

I debated buying this palette for weeks due to the price. I read a few reviews about the shimmer and the fallout : I didn't experience any issues with shimmer, fall out or blending. it's a fantastic neutral pallete. I will add in the last week I've used it twice, and two shimmers have shattered. one fell out of the palette and another broke the first time I touched a brush to it (and I'm not pressing overly hard at all). I wanted to bring this on vacation but I'm extremely worried it won't make the trip in one piece, and I'd have shimmer all over my clothes. Buy only if you have a way to keep it protected and very gentle use.

I love Natasha's formulas so get evwry 15 pan palette. I had to get a replacement for the first shipment becaus two pans had fallen out in shipping. Ulta replaced it straight away, but one pan also came loose. I teied to press it back but it fell out later aftwr usinf it for a few applications. This is rhe first pallete that has been like this.

I am a colorful shadow type of girl but I love this more than I thought I would. Even if I am not using it fully, I love to grab it for the shimmers even with other palettes. You won't find this quality with drug store. It's even comparable to some indie brands. Between Natasha's last 2 releases of Yucca and Nude, I've become a big fan.
Valerie from Myrtle Beach
Very beautiful good quality palette. The colors are gorgeous! However, i would recommend that Ulta do a better job on packing. Half of the eye shadows were broken into crumbles.
Nikki from NJ
I own almost every one of the larger palettes from ND and I absolutely love them. This one caught my eye immediately because I am a neutral lover but what a huge disappointment. The shades may look different in the pans but look the same on the eyes. The mattea a very difficult to work with and almost dusty. The shimmers are nothing special. I'm light/medium skin tone in the winter and the shades barely show up on my eyes. Just all around bad. Would return but I used my points. Gave 2 stars for packaging.
Corlando from Chicago
I was extrmely skeptical about purchasing this item because of the price. However, when my favorite influencer Angie Hot and Flashy mentioned it in one of her reviews, I gave it a whirl. Not going to lie, when I opened it I was not impressed with the colors until I played with combos and put them on. I am hooked! This is a true investment piece for your make up.

I love this pallet, and I bought it because it was love at first sight, and I knew that it would make sense to have in my collection, since I already own The Glam Pallette and The Biba Pallete, when it got to my hands it was a perfect fit. If you have a coupon get this, instead of paying the OG price, which I am happy for. And I never looked back, the colors appear washed out but if you are a light to medium skin tone, you should be able to get some looks from here

while this pallet is BEAUTIFUL, it arrived broken with several pans of color either broken or loose. I'm thinking it could be that the formula is soft. I would return immediately if I hadn't gotten it for such a steal. Packaging was not fantastic either.
If it had arrived intact, I would say that it is a beautiful pallette with such pretty, versatile shades. Almost creamy shadows.
R from Ca
If they have it in stock at your local Ulta it's best you grab it from there. Don't order it online because mine arrived with a broken eyeshadow 😕 Good thing is I was able to get an exchange.
Shannon from Buffalo NY
This palette is absolutely gorgeous—- i couldnt wait to get my hands on it and it did not disappoint in person. However i have to warn those wanting to buy this that the shadows are SO extremely soft that they break way too easily. I have had it for about a month and 2 shadows have completely fallen out on their own. That being said, buy with caution. I would not recommend this to a working makeup artist. It's nice if youre going to be only using it on occasion and not traveling with it as the shadows will break.
Willa from Minnesota
When you pay this much for a palette, it should be shipped properly! My palette was tossed in a bubble mailer - no extra packaging, just the retail box. It was demolished. I was incredibly upset!
TD from Savannah, Ga
I loved this pallett unfortunatley there is something in the pigment that im allergic to. Took me a little while to figure it out but everytime i used it my eyes would swell and become itchy.
Katy from Florida
I just received my palette today and i immediately noticed eyeshadow was all over the cover. I was worried that the shadows were proven but they were actually fine. I tried to wipe away the shadows and glitter by i found that it was actuallly stuck within the clear encasing. This is without me even swatching the shades so who knows how dirty it will get with use. I havs no seen anyone else mention this in their reviews so maybe I recieived a bad one.
Cindy from NC
This is a beautiful color palette however thats where it ends….the shades are loose in the container and will fall out. I am returning b/c of this and hope that this issue gets fixed as its too much money to have the shades falling out of the palette.

I had this sitting in my cart for a hot minute before I finally caved and decided to pay so much for this palette. I prefer a very minimal look on my eyes, so this is perfect. I feel like most palettes have maybe 3-4 colors I use and rarely touch the rest but I use all these shades. There is a nice blend of cool and warm tones of pretty much the same colors. I understand the reviews that suggest there isn't much variety, but I personally disagree. The variety is subtle and the colors lean delicate but in a way someone like me very much appreciates. It is absolutely possible to do a bold look with these colors though, perhaps not as extreme as some may like. I have had no fall out and find the colors to be highly pigmented, last all day with primer. I have very sensitive skin and eyes and haven't experienced any discomfort with any of the colors. I have never liked a palette as much as I like this one.
Kay from VA
Satin shades are not great and some shades look similar on the eyes.
Anna from San Diego, CA
The mattes are super blendable and cool toned. The formula is absolutely fantastic. But the shimmer shades all look cool toned in the pan and online photos, but they actually all have a red/warm base to them with silver sparkle and so they will show up warm, especially if you have fair skin like I do. Was hoping this would he my perfect cool toned neutral palette and ended up returning.
This is my favorite "simple" look or bold lip palette. My too faced lust palette needs to be replaced and this is a good option with better formula. I usually like bolder colors but have been reaching for this over many others. Some of the shades look similar so just be aware you won't get a ton of variety with this palette.
