Natasha Denona Tan Bronze & Glow Palette is for those who love gilded gold, wet and shiny-looking bronze god/goddess kind of vibes. I think it delivers on what the brand was promising, though the degree of “bronze” is going to depend on skin tone depth. With the more bronzer-like shade (#3), fairer complexions will want to user a lighter hand, while tan to darker skin tones may find it has a my-skin-but-better kind of effect–subtle warmth added without darkening the skin or may work as a blush.
Natasha Denona Tan #1 Glow Cream Base
Tan #1 is a light-medium copper with warm, reddish undertones and a dewy, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff–just as described–that was easy to apply over bare skin as well as over base products. The consistency was lightly tacky in the pan, creamy, and emollient without being heavy. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.
Natasha Denona Tan #2 Super Glow Highlighter
Tan #2 is a bright, peachy orange with strong, warm golden shimmer and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was firmer and more densely packed in the pan. I’d recommend using a moderately dense brush (e.g. not a fan brush) to pick up product; more typical tapered highlighting brushes would do the trick and pick up product evenly. The color applied well to my skin as it blended out nicely along the edges and had a high-shine finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.
Natasha Denona Tan #3 Blush & Bronze Powder
Tan #3 is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones that leaned slightly redder (rather than orange or yellow) and had a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty in the pan, but it never looked dry on my skin. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed any fading.
Natasha Denona Tan #4 Glow Impact Powder
Tan #4 is a bright, light-medium peach-gold with strong, warm undertones and a high-shine, metallic finish. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which was easy to build up to full coverage or sheer out for lighter coverage. (This was described as a buildable formula.) The consistency was smooth, firmer, and denser without being too stiff or difficult to pick up with a brush (though I’d recommend a moderately dense brush to do so). I found that at higher coverage levels, it did emphasize my skin’s natural texture a bit, though in person it seemed to be shiny enough that it was hard to notice–but it depended on how the light hit. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
