Bad or Rad | Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette Review

Bad or Rad | Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette Review

Natasha Denona is an unofficial member of BEAUTY'S BIG THREE, a term I affectionally coined for Pat McGrath Labs, Natasha Denona, and Viseart. Each of these brands creates expensive, highly coveted eyeshadow formulas that not only set trends, but are loved by hardcore fans, but abhorred by consumers who didn't feel their products were worth the price tag. Admittedly, I've remained skeptical of Natasha Denona's eyeshadows after having a bad experience with one of the brand's mini 5-pan palettes. However, I wanted to give the brand another chance. When Natasha Denona released the Sunrise Palette, I was immediately drawn in by the beautiful array of warm-tone, sunrise-inspired colors and intrigued by the lower price point. But was this 15-pan palette worth the $65.00 price tag? Please keep reading for an in-depth review of the Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette, complete with swatches, demo looks, and pricing information.

Understanding Cruelty-Free Beauty | Cruelty Free Beauty 101

At it's most simplistic definition, Cruelty-Free Beauty consists of beauty and personal care products that are manufactured or developed by methods that do not involve experimentation on animals. Despite the straightforward book definition, Cruelty-Free Beauty is much more complicated in real life because there is no legal definition of what constitutes a Cruelty-Free brand. In a recent video from JenLuvsReviews, she classified Cruelty-Free Beauty into three, easy-to-understand groups. Like her, I will do the same.
