In Love With This Palette
I've been eyeing with this palette for around about a month before purchasing it. So far, I've been really loving it. There is minimal fall out and I mostly experienced it with the darker shades so you may want to powder down first or do your eyes before complexion. Also, it's much more neutral palette than I thought, with some pops of vibrant color and it just makes it timeless. Personally for me, it was either the Biba or the Metropolis and I'm so glad I picked this palette instead. It's the 5 year anniversary palette and a celebration of her body of work with improved formulas than her past palettes--Natasha touched on this at a masterclass when she launched the product. I personally love it and have been reaching for it daily. I love the color arrangement--at first sight it looks wonky, but its actually purposeful. The shades are meant to be used either by quad, by trio, by row, or diagonally. Which makes it easier for the user to have a plan of attack in creating looks effortlessly. I really love the plastic sheet over the shade names, it not only protects the mirror from getting murky, but it lays out the formula (CP for cream to powder, M for matte, CM for cream to matte, etc). I feel like it's beginner friendly in that way so the user can figure the type of brush they need or if they can use their finger (probably, minor detail for some). The colors are timeless (lots of neutrals). Definitely fall vibes with the color story for the grungy greens but I can see extending use of this past this fall for the holidays because of the beautiful golds and through spring and summer for the vibrant blues and oranges. I also appreciate there's a 2 year expiration date from time of opening which is great so you can enjoy it longer.
