Natasha Denona Dark (03) All Over Glow Face & Body Shimmer In Powder Review & Swatches

Dark (03)

Natasha Denona Dark (03) All Over Glow Face & Body Shimmer In Powder ($38.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. As the name might suggest, it is designed as an more natural highlighter for darkker skin tones, and I imagine it will work as such on more tan to deep dark skin tones; on my coloring, it’s almost a contour shade as it less overtly warm-toned than typical brown-hued highlighters.

It had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, velvety consistency that was dense without being too firmly pressed in the pan, but there was no excess powder kicked up in the pan either, which made it easy to use a lighter hand for more buildable coverage if preferred. The powder applied evenly to my skin, blended out with little effort, and gave a luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.35 oz. – $108.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to give a “glowing and healthy texture to the skin” that can be used on the “face and body.” It is designed to be a subtler highlighter, and I think it absolutely delivers on that. If you want a skin-like glow–dewy but not wet or oily–that gives a soft sheen, a bit of lightness, and never emphasizes skin texture, this formula definitely does that. The powder had a very smooth, almost velvety texture that was denser, more firmly-pressed without becoming stiff (but no powderiness either). It applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading noticeably.
