Natasha Denona Bronze Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

 

Bronze

Natasha Denona Bronze 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette is a new, seemingly-permanent warm-toned palette that includes five matte shades, one satin shade, and nine more metallic shades. The metallics felt slightly creamier and richer (in texture) compared to recent releases (though not as emollient as the original formula, which is a good thing with respect to longevity!), while the mattes have a more velvety, substantial texture that ensures greater color payoff with minimal fallout but still keeps the formula blendable.

From a quality standpoint, it’s one of the brand’s best palettes. While working with it, I felt like my looks tended to end up looking more similar than not; whenever I work with a larger palette, like this one, I try to showcase at least two different looks to see how versatile the color story is. I think that it is a deeper, darker color story that will be particularly lovely on medium and deeper skin tones. I found it paired well with the brand’s Metropolis palette to extend its color story and give it more contrast.

Deep Dive (308CP)

Deep Dive (308CP) is a deep burgundy with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was a cream-powder finish, so it had a more emollient quality to it by touch, though it behaved more like a richer, creamier powder formula when applied to the lid. I’d recommend using a slightly denser, more dome-shaped brush (almost like an oversized pencil brush) to deposit color evenly for working in the crease or on the outer lid/v area. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and blended out well along the edges. The color stayed on nicely for 10 hours before fading visibly.
