Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 - Joya Holiday Edition

What it is:
A limited edition palette with five soft, buildable eyeshadows.

Colors from L - R:

  • Peach Gold
  • Fuchsia
  • Gold
  • Red Grape
  • Star Bronze


I am a huge fan of Natasha Denona eye shadows, her shadow formula is spot on and worth the luxe price point. For the 2017 Holiday season Natasha Denona released 2 limited edition eye palettes. I was really drawn to the warm toned colors in the Joya palette. The shades are stunning in person and have great pigmentation. The shades blend out beautifully and there is no fall out. The quality on these eye shadows is not on the same level as her bigger palettes but overall I am happy with my purchase.

ColourPop Semi Precious Shadow Palette

What it is:
A highly pigmented metallic eyeshadow palette, inspired by the stars and celestial lights.

Colors in the Palette:

  • Upon A Star (cool rose)
  • Beam Me Up ( icy pale blue)
  • Bashful (soft icy green)
  • The Game (antique gold)
  • Celestial (warm champagne ivory)
  • West Star (rich copper brown)
  • Up & Atom (golden amber)
  • Easy Go (vibrant cranberry)


Verdict: This palette is absolutely fantastic. The colors are beautiful, fun, and totally wearable. The colors apply very smoothly and have a buttery texture. The pigmentation is amazing, as well. The shadow pans are larger than the standard $16 ColourPop eye shadow palettes which explains the price differentiation. This palette would be fantastic for the holidays or as an add on to a matte shadow palette.
