Natasha Denona Love Glow Cheek Palette Review & Swatches


Love Glow

Natasha Denona Love Glow Blush & Glow Palette is a new, permanent palette (this packaging is limited edition) that features a cream blush, two blushes, and one highlighter. All four shades performed similarly to past shades I’ve tried in each respective formula, but that being said, the textures of the powder products tended to be a bit denser/firmer and will all work well for someone who is often fearful of over-applying or someone who has a more moderate-hand already. If you’re someone uses really light touches or very feathery brushes, you may find your technique doesn’t translate well with this palette. On the flip side, none of the shades were powdery, and they blended out easily and “melted” slightly on my skin for a more luminous effect overall.

Love Glow (Glow Cream Base)

Love Glow (Glow Cream Base) is a muted, medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous finish with faint pearl throughout. It had a lightly glossy finish when applied to bare skin or over foundation (and it didn’t lift up my base whether applied with fingertips or a synthetic brush). It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, which was as marketed, that layered well under other shades in the palette. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Love Glow (Super Glow)

Love Glow (Super Glow) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and warmer, golden shimmer and micro-sparkle that gave it an intense, high-shine finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a smooth, moderately dense texture, so it was easy to pick up less product if desired (for sheerer coverage).

The color applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort, and I didn’t feel like it emphasized my skin’s natural texture, but it was close to that line so someone with more texture might find it would. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before I noticed fading.

Love Glow (Diamond Powder)

Love Glow (Diamond Powder) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink sparkle and micro-glitter. It had a more glittering finish, so those who aren’t keen on noticeable glitter will find this to be a problem. The texture was denser, slightly firm, and drier overall, so it required a moderate to heavy-hand to pick up product evenly.

It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation. It had a flatter, shinier finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture but read a bit glittery. The color applied evenly and diffused without much effort without the sparkles spreading out too readily, but there was light migration of sparkles over the eight and a half hours it wore well for.

Love Glow (Glow Impact Powder)

Love Glow (Glow Impact Powder) is a light-medium, golden peach with warm undertones and a smooth, luminous sheen. It was more metallic when layered than it was applied with just one layer. It had buildable coverage from semi-opaque to opaque (second layer) with a firmer, denser texture.

It worked best with slightly denser, more rounded brushes to pick up product evenly, but it blended out well and sat flatteringly on my skin as it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter wore nicely for eight and a half hours before I noticed fading.
