SEPHORA CANADA: New Natasha Denona Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette Launches June 3, 2019 + Swatches & Review by YouTuber Sonia – Marie

#glossense #soniamarie #natashadenona #sunrisepalette #sephoracanada #canadianbeauty #makeup #canada

Get excited; Natasha Denona’s NEW Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette is launching tomorrow, June 3, 2019! 😀

“A palette inspired by the warm glow of a morning sunrise, with sunny yellows, crimson corals, earthy browns, and powerful pinks, all made to melt together in perfect harmony.”

– $85 @ Sephora Canada

In the meantime, I’d like to introduce you to Sonia Marie, an amazing new Canadian YouTuber with a love for beauty. She’s got this super natural, candid quality that I just love!

Sonia was also one of the lucky few who happened to be in the right place, at the right time, when Sephora accidentally launched ND’s Sunrise palette a week early! 😮 Yep! She’s got it! 😀 Upon its arrival, she didn’t waste any time in releasing a first impressions video – and it’s a must-watch! 😉

Within her video, Sonia takes the time to share her experience with the palette; the formula and its blendability, she shows a size comparison in relation to Natasha Denona’s Sunset palette, provides shadow swatches, and even takes the time to compare similar shades. ❤

If you’re on the fence about buying, Sonia will have you changing your mind and wanting it. Sephora’s photos does the Sunrise palette no justice, so I highly recommend that you take the time to view her video before its release. It’s stunning!! 😮

Outside of YouTube, you can also find Sonia on Instagram. Currently, she’s doing a 30 Day Eyeshadow Challenge and it’s been so enjoyable to view her progression! This look (click to view) is so far my fav! 😍

The three shadows pictured above: Iggy, Electric Warrior and Danzig, were spotted earlier today; They were all that my local Winners had. But! There might be more out there lurking, so keep your eyes peeled and snag them before they’re gone for good!
