Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette is a brand new cheek palette that features a cream highlighter, cream blush, powder highlighter, and powder blush. It’s a extra edited tackle the model’s bigger, six-pan Cheek Palettes that I raved about final yr. All 4 shades carried out nicely, and so they layered nicely collectively in varied mixtures (cream with cream, powder with powder, a combination, and all collectively). I didn’t discover that the 4 shades created as a lot distinction/selection in general seems in comparison with the bigger Citurs and Darya palettes, however the high quality of the 4 right here was incredible. I’d like to see Natasha Denona launch an entire line of the Duo Glows as a standalone product vary.
Natasha Denona Peach Glow Cream Base
Peach is a delicate, pinky-coral base with very superb, golden pearl. It’s alleged to be “buildable” to permit for layering (and it did layer nicely with the opposite merchandise within the palette). It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation–at most, principally opaque–however as it’s a gentle colour, it wasn’t like increase! pigment (and by no means can be). It had a delicate, delicate glow that was glass-like and by no means shimmery or pore-emphasizing.
It utilized nicely over naked pores and skin in addition to over cream/liquid basis (I attempted Too Faced Born This Way and Tom Ford Traceless Stick with it). The texture was flippantly cheesy initially with a firmer, denser consistency that I felt I needed to dig at a bit with my stippling brush to choose up product. It appeared to yield a bit higher after just a few makes use of. The product utilized evenly, unfold and subtle with little effort, and wore nicely for 9 hours on me earlier than it began to fade a bit.
Natasha Denona Fuchsia Cream Blush
Fuchsia is wealthy, raspberry crimson with cool, pink undertones and superb, golden micro-shimmer. It had a delicate, satiny end when utilized and buffed out–not overtly shimmery however not flat or matte. For as intense because the shade was, it utilized and subtle extremely simply, although it tended to look extra like a pop of bluish-pink fairly than the deeper crimson it appeared within the pan. The consistency was flippantly creamy, nearly a contact cheesy within the pan, however it didn’t appear to stay moist or cheesy on my pores and skin. It stayed on nicely for over 10 hours with minimal fading.
For extra true-to-pan colour on cheeks, I’d advocate making use of a sheer layer to get the general form of the colour after which making use of extra closely simply the place you need probably the most intense colour and protection, then gently buffing the sting of that with the primary layer. I felt like that technique gave me management over depth however ensured I didn’t find yourself spreading and diffusing product on half my face because the blush was simply so blendable!
Light Rose is a light-medium peach with heat, golden undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle. At occasions, it appeared extra sparkle than base pigment, however after I utilized it to my cheeks and blended out the powder, it gave me a delicate blush with a reasonable sheen with faint sparkle. It didn’t appear fairly as sparkly on my pores and skin and appeared to have a smoother, much less glittery end general, although I’d say it had reasonable sheen fairly than an “extreme” one. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation (it was described as “buildable”) that utilized evenly and blended out with little effort. The highlighter lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me earlier than beginning to fade barely.
Vibrant Coral & Golden
Vibrant Coral & Golden is a vibrant, medium-dark pink-coral with a lot of golden shimmer and a metallic sheen. There additionally gave the impression to be faint, nearly violet-hued shimmer at occasions. It had opaque pigmentation with a clean, flippantly creamy consistency that was dense with out being too firmly pressed within the pan. It appeared extra orange within the pan, barely orange at an angle when utilized, however it was predominantly a pink-coral on me.
The blush utilized simply over my pores and skin, blended out as I utilized it, and didn’t emphasize my pores and skin’s pure texture, although it had shiny, flippantly metallic end. Applying the cream blush solely introduced out the pink tones of the Duo Glow, whereas layering on the powder highlighter amplified the end and made it shinier. Alone, the blush wore fantastically for 9 hours on me earlier than fading a bit.
