The Love Palette is the latest release from Natasha Denona and it is putting me in the mood for spring days and romantic date nights. Full of coral, pinks, reds and purples, it makes a welcome change from ‘another warm neutral palette’. First up, the Love Palette is a 15 pan small palette which means a more affordable price tag for Natasha Denona. Similar to the last years Sunrise palette (which I love) you get 15 ND shadows in a sturdy, compact palette for approx 70 euro HERE.
What is inside the Love Palette?
You get a beautiful colour story that consists of seven creamy mattes, two cream to powder and six metallic shadows. The shades are:
- First: Creamy matte beige with a hint of peach
- Lifetime: Warm metallic gold
- Heartbeat: Maroon creamy matte
- Transparent: Metallic nude pink
- Trust: Deep purple creamy matte
- Heart: Crimson creamy matte
- Giving: Metallic Coral with a pink duochrome finish

- Passion: Deep burgundy with pink sparkles
- Intense: Warm pink creamy matte
- Valentine: Baby pink creamy matte
- Dream: Lilac Violet cream to powder
How Did Love Palette Perform?
I’m a big fan of the Natasha Denona eyeshadow formula. Her pigmentation is always exactly what you want from a product. Sometimes I find her red toned matte shades can be hard to blend so I do suggest powdering your primer and applying a transition shade. This really helps the blend. The cream to powder formula layers beautifully and the shimmer shades are best applied with a clean finger.
When a palette has a higher price tag I try to weigh up a few things to decide if it is worth the splurge. I always see if I can find a cheaper alternative or if I have something in my collection that is similar. In this case I failed on both accounts. It is unique in both its colour story and formula type. While is was a release for Valentine’s Day, I believe this palette will see you through all seasons. You have corals for summer, deep maroon for autumn etc… If your collection consists of mostly warm neutrals then the Love Palette is a clever addition for versatility. You can see the palette in use HERE where I created the look below.
Love Glow Cheek Palette
Is part of this collection and equally as beautiful. I consider Natasha Denona’s Tan Palette one of my favourite cheek palettes so when I saw this I got excited! Inside a fun, sparkly case you will find one cream, a super glow powder, a diamond powder and a glow impact powder in shades of pinks and gold. The diamond powder can be used on the cheeks but I also love it as an eye shadow topper. Again, I don’t have anything like this in my collection so I am happy to own it. The colours may not be for everyone and as someone who loves nudes or peaches on my cheeks I felt nervous to use it. The result I loved however and am now inspired to use more pink tones on my face. You can purchase HERE.
I think Natasha Denona has done an incredible job with this collection. They are unique, wearable and once applied last for hours. The packaging is luxe and beautiful to look at. I love finishing off the look with a simple lip like one of Natasha Denona’s lip glosses. If you have tried any one these make sure you let me know! I’d also love if you followed me on Instagram for daily beauty content and IGTV tutorials.
