Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Eyeshadow Palette

I Need a Nude

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette is a new, permanent neutral palette that leaned somewhat warm-toned (more of a rose/peach undertone throughout) with a few neutral-toned tones that gave the color story a desaturated appearance without being too light or washed out. The quality was equal to previous ND offerings, albeit this palette contains more glittering colours than is customary for a palette, so individuals who like smoother finishes may find this too flashy.

Delilah (498SW)

Filigree (502SF)

Filigree (502SF) is a rich, medium-dark bronzy-taupe with warm rose overtones and a gently shimmering, metallic sheen. Because it was very rich, I felt that a lighter coating dispersed gave a more dazzling look than a metallic one.

Mia (507SW)

Mia (507SW) is a light pink with warm undertones and a more transparent foundation, as well as finer, wet-looking shimmer and a glossy finish. I couldn’t locate anything that expressly identified this hue as transparent/sheer, and it seemed opaque in the brand’s promotional samples!
