Time to make it rain: Natasha Denona has landed in our local Sephoras
Run, don't walk
Just when you're all smug thinking you have your year-end beauty budget sorted out, trust Sephora to throw a monkey wrench in your financial planning by dropping a beauty bombshell. Yes, my fellow makeup junkies, Natasha Denona has. Freaking. Arrived. The eponymous cult brand of all cult brands founded by the celebrated makeup artist, these babies are just flying off the shelves in the States, thanks to Instagram and its bevy of #FOTDs as the enabler.
We reckon the same fever will grip our makeup community real soon, so while you get over being blindsided by this never-expected-to-find-but-secretly-longed-for Christmas present, here are the three must-haves if you can't decide on how to whittle down your shopping list:
1. Star Eyeshadow Palette, $250
Famed for her intense eyeshadow formulas, this is the OG Natasha Denona palette to splash out on. The warm 18-shade selection has the perfect assortment of colours to achieve every trending rose gold and red-toned look out there. We hear you; the fiscal pain is real, but it's temporary compared to the long-lasting finishes you'll get out of your new bad boy.
2. Blush Duo Palette, $56
If you must have your face sculpted before stepping out, these compacts with its stellar pigmentation and blendability will be a new top-drawer fave. Paired with a dominant colour and a subtler complement to blend and soften the edges, there's even a huge shade range to pick and choose from. We're eyeing Toutou as the sandy half can double up as bronzer in a pinch.
3. Chroma Crystal Top Coat Eye Primer, $42
You only need to look at these stunners and you're sold. Seriously, it's pure lustrous, iridescent goodness in a creamy texture you just want to apply everywhere. In fact, it's developed with a multi-use formulation for this purpose so you can use it on the eyes and as a lipstick topper. Hello, glow.
