Natasha Denona is known for her eyeshadows because they are so pigmented and blend easily.

The new Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette is a new launch and is available now on Sephora!


The price is $25 USD or $33 CAD. The size of the Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette is 5 shades x 0.02 oz per shade. I will let you know that this product is very tiny but I tend not to use entire eyeshadow palettes anyway!

It’s so great when Natasha Denona launches minis because her makeup is considered luxury and is a bit expensive. Usually she launches bigger palettes such as the Biba or the Love Palette.

In the new Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette, you get a mix of shimmers and neutrals. There is a definite 60’s vibe going on here with this palette.

Natasha Denona also launched a mini version of the Bloom Highlighting Blush. This blush is unique because it is a mix of highlighter and blush. Essentially the blush has a bit of a colour shift that includes glitter.

Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette Shades and Swatches

The Mini Retro is perfect for spring with a mix of beautiful neutrals but also small pops of colour.

Here are the shades included from left to right:

Galaxia – Light nude with green and blue sparks for a neutral duo chrome

Industrial – Green taupe with a silver undertone

60’s – Greenish, grey but also matte

Vintage Taupe – Antique Rose Matte

Pixie – Pink with a champagne undertone

Here are the swatches of the Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette:

Also, on Instagram, @Trendmood1 has politely shown us live swatches:

As you can see there are a lot of shimmers in the Mini Retro Palette. The idea is to go over the eyes for a wash of colour and a 60’s vibe.

Here is an example of how to use the Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette based on this photo I took from Sephora:

Natasha Denona Mini Bloom Blush

If you’re familiar with the Bloom, Blush & Glow Palette by Natasha Denona you’ll know that this is a beautiful face multi-purpose palette perfect for spring.

The full Bloom, Blush & Glow Palette is pretty expensive at $73 Canadian.

Natasha Denona just launched a mini version of the Bloom Blush that comes in the palette. If you didn’t want to invest in the entire palette this blush is for you!

The price of the Mini Bloom Blush is $19 USD or $26 CAD.

There is a beautiful pink shift that looks like a highlighter in one. It is also formulated with hyaluronic acid and tropical oil to help ensure that the skin holds onto the product.

I find that the Mini Bloom Blush looks like the NARS Orgasm blush and the new NARS Orgasm X Blush!

Coral is definitely a hot colour for spring so if you are going to buy any one blush for spring this should be it!

What colour skin does the Bloom Blush Mini Work Best With?

Since blush is harder to match skin tone, the good news about the Bloom Blush Mini is that it’s sheer enough to wear on all skin types!

The Bloom Blush mini looks great on lighter and darker skin. Take a look at some of the examples at how to wear the Natasha Denona Bloom Blush Mini:

Other Natasha Denona Mini Products

As mentioned above, Natasha Denona products can be costly. Therefore, she does release a lot of her bigger eyeshadow palettes in the form of mini products.

Almost every bigger eyeshadow palette is a mini which is what makes her collection so unique.

Here are most of the Natasha Denona Mini Eyeshadow Palettes so you can see how they vary!
