All throughout the summer season, we saw a parade of eyeshadow palettes filled with warm tones from top brands like Urban Decay, Sephora, and ColourPop. At the helm was Natasha Denona with her Sunset Eyeshadow palette, which has been selling out like ice cream on a clear, summer’s day since May.
As the seasons change, and things start cooling down, Natasha Denona is once again leading the pack. Last September 12th, she launched her newest eyeshadow palette that she aptly named Lila.
About Natasha Dedona’s Lila eyeshadow palette
Natasha Dedona’s Lila eyeshadow palette exudes a shimmering purple vibe inside out. It starts with the palette’s sleek and rather unassuming purple case with a magnetic closure.
Inside, you’ll find a perfect blend of 15 different kinds of warm and cool plums and violets as well as a few pinks and golds, which are reminiscent of her extremely successful Sunset palette. There are also four classic eyeshadow colors as well, making this perfect to use for every skin tone.
The choice of colors for the Lila eyeshadow palette were all inspired by Natasha’s love for the purple color scale. Majority of the finishes of the eyeshadows included in this palette range from shimmering to metallic, which makes its launch just in time for the upcoming holiday season. It’s no wonder why a lot of fashion influencers on Instagram and makeup artists (including this makeup artist) have been raving about it even before it went out on the market.
My first impressions
I liked the look and feel of the cover. It’s sleek, stylish, and classy.

The accompanying mirror inside the cover is just the right size for me to use to when I do some touching up to switch it from day to night makeup while I’m on the go.
The range of colors in the palette was pretty okay, especially if you got a light-colored skin. However, I find the selection of colors a bit limiting for people with dark colored skin. I would have personally preferred it more if they added another light-colored metallic into the mix.
As far as the quality of the eyeshadows themselves, I have to say that I’m really impressed with them. I’ve had my fair share of eyeshadows that look fabulous in the palette but aren’t as vibrant when you apply it on the eyelids. A little definitely goes a long way, even when using the light colored metallics.
The metallics and chrome colors are very easy to apply and blend together. I did find the matte colors a bit too dry for my taste, still manageable.
Is it worth it?
At $129, this eyeshadow palette is very expensive. I felt my stomach tying up in knots when I paid for this.
Despite my initial disappointment about the color range, this eyeshadow palette is so worth the price. The colors are so vibrant that you only need a little bit. The powder is fine enough that it’s easy to apply and blend. Best of all, it lasts for a very long time.
If you got the funds for this, I’d highly recommend investing in this. It’s going to be so worth it.
