Finally posting swatches of the @natashadenona Tropic Palette!
Sorry for the messy swatches, my lines are wonky. I did these very, very early this morning before heading to the set. So give me a pass! If you swipe, there’s names included and close ups of the shades as well. The color story here is absolutely stunning. It’s vibrant, fun and unique. You can create ANY type of look with the shade range here.
Now let’s talk about my thoughts ... As I’m sure you realize by now, I love Natasha Denona products. They have been staples in my kit and my own routine LONG before she was “social media famous” so when I tell you I feel that either the formula of the metallics and shimmers have changed, or at the very least been pressed much harder, you KNOW I’m telling the truth. The mattes are perfect. Same as ever. They are soft (I prefer that) full of pigment and almost blend themselves. Luckily 10 if the 15 ARE mattes. Now I still love the the 2 shimmers, Gusti abc Mint Frost are still really really good. They just take a bit more building that here usual formula. The one DuoChrome, Limoncello is beautiful and though it swatches kind of poorly, it’s beautiful on the eye. The 2 I’m still on the fence about are the 2 metallics, Tiger Lily and Exotic. They are not her normal formula. They feel hard in the pan, don’t apply well with a finger at all like a typical metallic and though a brush is THE way to go here and you do end up with beautiful pigment, it takes a bit of work to not look patchy and to blend how I wanted it. If I were rating this in a scale of 1-5 I’d give it a 4. Her other palettes are a 5 EVERYTIME. I still feel like this is really worth it. But if you are a beginner you may want to go in store to check it out first. #natashadenona#tropicpalette#beauylish#swatches#review#bblogger#makeupblog#makeupartist#whatsinmykit#makeup
