The palette features 15 eyeshadows: 10 Creamy Mattes, 1 Duo-chrome, 3 Metallics and 1 Sparkling. One of the first things that I noticed about this palette is that Denona included more mattes shades than usual. The first two rows are comprised mostly of mattes, including warm toned neutrals, peachy pinks and a red shade aptly named Sangria. The Creamy Matte formula is silky smooth and richly pigmented. These shadows literally blend themselves. They do kick up a little bit of powder in the pan but this wasn’t a major issue. These mattes are very versatile as they can be used as transition/crease or lid shades. A warm, peachy pink sparkling shade and a light yellow duo-chrome complete the second row. I suggest using an eyeshadow primer for optimal results.
The bottom row is everything! It includes vibrant pops of tropical color. The metallics are absolutely stunning! They are best applied with a flat synthetic brush such as the MAC 274. They’re very creamy with an intense color payoff. My favorite shade is Mint Frost (a cool, metallic mint green) which I’ve worn packed all over the lid. Exotic (a bright, metallic green) looks fantastic on the lower lash line. The palette also includes Laguna (a bright, matte sea blue), Tiger Lily (a metallic, cobalt blue) and Zena (a cool, matte violet.) The only issue that I had was some minor fallout with the more glittery shades (such as Mint Frost), so I’d advise using a glitter glue and/or applying your eye makeup first.
Moving on to packaging...The palette has a plastic casing that’s similar to the one used for the Diamond & Blush Palettes. There is a large mirror inside. The shade names are printed on the palette itself which is a welcome change from the attached Mylar sheet used in Denona’s previous palettes. The shadows are arranged vertically to create a complete look.
Now, let’s address the elephant in the room. I know that many people consider $129 to be too hefty of a price tag for an eyeshadow palette. Yes, it is a lot of money. However, I think it’s worth it for the following reasons:
1. Natasha Denona’s eyeshadows are some of the very best on the market. You are purchasing professional grade makeup.
2. Denona’s eyeshadows are really easy to work with whether you’re a beginner or a professional makeup artist.
3. When you do the math, you’re really only paying $8.60 per shadow. Many drugstore shadows are priced higher than that!
4. Denona only uses the highest quality of ingredients (such as crushed pearl) in formulating her eyeshadows. Natasha Denona Palettes are manufactured in Italy.
I think the Tropic is one of Denona’s most workable palettes considering the shade range. You can easily create a multitude of looks with just this palette alone.
Finally, this palette shouldn’t be judged based on swatches alone. You need to apply them to the eye to see them in their full glory. I highly recommend this palette.
