I was intrigued by all the Pat McGrath palettes for some time, so took the plunge and opted for this one to try. I am an avid fan of Natasha Denona, Anastasia and Huda palette formulations, so was really interested to see how these compare. I like the packaging design, though sometimes it can be a little fiddly to open and close. I was surprised the names are written on the clear plastic sheet …Read more

My third Natasha Denona palette and it probably won’t be my last. A totally all neutral palette, with warm, cool and neutral shades. There are one or two that are very similar in colour, but the textures are different, so I will forgive. I love that there isn’t a really light off white shade as I have so many and every palette always has them. In her, instead there is a cream shade that on me, is …Read more

i chose the lightest shade of this and it is actually a perfect tone for my fair/light skin. I really like the way it blends into my skin and I can pinpoint exactly where I want it and I know it’s virtually fool proof in that sense, so there’s little chance if it going horribly wrong when I’m getting ready in the morning. However, the downside for this product is the packaging. The contour is …Read more

I ended up throwing this away, I’m ashamed to say. I tried it over a period of about two weeks on and off. With primer, without primer, with fingers, with brush, with a beauty blender, each time it still looked bad. I’ve dry, blemish free skin, early fifties... but this did nothing for me. Accentuated fine lines, looked dry. It also seemed to separate in the tube, despite vigorous shaking. It …Read more

My new favourite foundation. I’ve had this now for nearly three weeks and love it. I thought Armani’s Luminous silk was great, but I have to say this is better on my skin. This is superb for maturing, drier ( slightly dehydrated) skin if you are like me. I have fine lines and my pores aren’t too noticeable and even less so, when I use this. I use a beauty blender and it dries down beautifully, to …Read more

This is my third Natasha Debona palette but only the second one that I like. I find that if you are buying this blindly on line like I am, it’s a bit of a risk, especially with the high price. Firstly, this is a bold palette and I find that really with all her palettes and the quality is the best you will find, regards pigment, blend ability and staying power. But they are difficult to use, there …Read more

This is my second Natasha Denona palette, as I already have the LILA palette, which I adore, but I am sorry to say I don’t like this one. The formulas are great, there is nothing wrong with them. The mattes apply beautifully. However, I do notice they are more powdery and I also notice for this palette, Natasha changed the formula to include talc. That is my first disappointment as I never …Read more

Bitterly disappointed with this palette. I have the original Venus XL palette, which is a pink/red based palette and the quality of this is such a contrast. All the colours are bland. The shimmers are very poorly pigmented as are the mattes. I honestly wonder if I got a pallette which has a fault, it’s that bad. There is no dark colour, nor is there a suitable transition shade. A lot of the …Read more

If I had reviewed this eyeliner pen 6 weeks ago, it would have been a full five stars across the board. However, my review, after this period, is what you see before you. The liner started beautifully, as it should for the £47 I paid for it. I thought that this would be the end to my problems with other liners that I use a lot, such as the Stila Stay all day, or Kat Von D’s eye liner in …Read more

I disliked this so much. It did absolutely nothing except make my eyelids really, really dry ( and they are already dry) thus making my eyeshadow look dry and caked immediately. Had to remove it straight away as so bad. I gave it to a friend. What wa waste of money ( we can’t return beauty items in the uk, wish we could) .
