So, I saw Tati's YT review on these palettes. She made a big deal about Talc being one of the top ingredients (it might have even been #1). She was all: "Don't rush out to get these... they're not really worth it." But when she was swatching on her arm she was fawning and drooling over, like, 80% of the shades and praised their quality. Her video left me more confused. Like, are you loving these shadows or not? People in the comments were livid that there is Talc as a main ingredient, because of it being a filler (in their words) and thus feel like the shadows shouldn't be so expensive. Everyone else who has these shadows besides this video says they love them... What do ya'll think?
Maybe she loves them in spite of them containing talc? I've also seen her video, and she's worn the eyeshadows in other vids since that review, IIRC, so that's what leads me to my conclusion.
I don't own any of the eyeshadows, and given the price of the singles (since I wouldn't purchase a pre-made palette), I'd still skip, I think. Other brands have a wide range of colours and finishes, and for less money.
For some additional comparisons (singles vs singles)...
MUFE shadows have a little less product (2g vs 2.5g) and cost $4 to $8 less than Natasha's singles. Or at price per gram, it's $10.50/gram for MUFE vs. $10-11.60/gram for a Natasha single. Not a huge price difference, that way.
Rouge Bunny Rouge refills are $19 for 2g, or $9.50/gram. Again, not much. (RBR shadows also contain talc as an ingredient.)
Inglot shadows, like Natasha's, come in square pans. They cost $7 each for 2.3g (matte), 2.5g (diamond sparkle), 2.7g (pearl and AMC), or 3.2g (AMC Shine) -- a quarter to a third of the price for close to the same amount of product. Or: ~$3.04/gram for the mattes, $2.80/gram for the diamond sparkles, ~$2.59/gram for the pearls and AMCs, and ~$2.19/gram for the AMC Shines. (Also with talc, second ingredient.) They also cost less, either way, than a Natasha shadow within a large palette. (Inglot's rainbow shadows are $9 each for 2.5g, or $3.60/gram.)
