Natasha Denona Berry Pop Collection

February 13, 2024

Natasha Denona Berry Pop Collection

Natasha Denona launched three new cranberry-themed launches in her new Berry Pop Collection just in time for Valentine’s Day. We usually see nudes or pink tones from Natasha Denona (which I love) and I rarely wear red but the colors in the Berry Pop collection are really pretty! The items are available at Ulta Beauty and Natasha Denona.

Berry Pop Cheek Trio

Natasha Denona Berry Pop Cheek Palette

The Berry Pop Cheek Trio ($48) has two rosy shades and a highlighter. The Tinted Glow Cream Base (middle shade) is a softer creamy soft rose pink shimmer. It’s creamy and emollient but has a pretty good dry down once you blend it. You can wear it on the eyes or cheeks.

The Cream Blush has more of a powdery feel to it. It’s very pigmented so a little goes a long way. It’s an intimidating to my neutral-makeup-loving self but very easy to blend for a tint of color.

The Highlighter is a beautiful champagne shimmer with a very smooth silky feel to it. Shimmer is pretty shimmery but it’s finely milled for a really stunning glow.

Overall a solid A+ for performance, blendability and texture. I don’t know that it will be for everyone as I know a lot of you prefer a neutral toned blush, but the reds in this collection have more of a cranberry vibe so it’s not straight up red.

Berry Pop Lipstick + Lip Liner

Natasha Denona Berry Pop Lipstick and Lip Liner

I love a coordinating lipstick + liner duo and the Berry Pop Lipstick ($27) and Berry Pop Lip Crayon ($24) have Natasha Denona’s signature creamy full coverage formula. Both are matching shades of cranberry. The Lipstick is opaque, smooth, creamy with a satin finish. The Lip Crayon liner is also smooth, very long wearing and really does help to extend the wear of your lipstick (it took waterproof remover to take off). Both have a cool undertone to them.

I Need a Rose Lipsticks

Natasha Denona I Need a Rose Lipsticks

For my neutral-lip lovers I’ve added a quick look at her I Need a Rose Lipsticks which are the first neutrals lip colors in her line that don’t wash me out. We all know neutral lipsticks can be tricky. Something that is “neutral” to me can be straight up orange on someone else or can also look concealer-like depending on lip tone, skin tone, under tone etc.

Her I Need a Rose Lipsticks are beautiful lighter shades that have just the right amount of warmth for me. Most of her other nude lipsticks are too cool-toned on me, but for those looking for truly cool-toned lipsticks or liners, I can’t rave enough about her formulas.

Peony is a pale milky pink cream, Daphne is a medium rosy brown nude, Calla is stunning beige cream. She has matching Lip Liners and Lip Glosses to go with these. I actually have the lip liners but they are missing in action in my stash (I couldn’t find them). I do have the Lip Glosses swatched on the arm, but the formula unfortunately settles into my lip lines and I’m really not a fan of them.

New Natasha Denona Launches

August 23, 2023

Natasha Denona I need a Nude Palette, Mini Starlette + New Lip Crayons

I’m always excited to see what Natasha Denona creates and this season she’s given us neutral makeup lovers some stunning palettes. I have a look at her two latest palettes I Need a Nude Eyeshadow Palette and Mini Starlet alongside swatches of her new I Need a Nude Lip Crayons.

Mini Starlette

I think her mini 5-pan palettes are some of my favorites on the market. I still adore her Mini Nude and Mini Biba Palette years after they launched. Her new Mini Starlette is beautiful. It has a very pretty mix of neutrals, both warm, neutral and cool. It has a soft matte cool brown, a sparkling champagne pink topper, a soft matte apricot pink and a cool brown plum matte.

Pigment is beautiful and easy to layer. The mattes don’t always swatch the best on the hands but I’ve always found they apply beautifully on the lids with smooth textures.

I Need a Nude Lip Crayon

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Lip Crayon

Natasha Denona added new shades of her I Need a Nude Lip Crayon. These are super creamy and opaque and glide on like a dream. I think the colors are just SO beautiful, but my darker tone pigmented lips cannot pull off the neutrals. They swatch beautifully on the arm but on my complexion/lip tone/skin tone they look very cool and grey.

This round I’m finally able to wear some of her new shades, in particular the colors with the P in the color code work really well.

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Lip Crayon

I Need a Nude Palette

I’ve saved the best for last. Her I Need a Nude Palette is a neutral-lover’s dream come true. I love her Biba and Glam Palette and this new one runs a bit warmer in tone which is perfect for me. I love a good neutral but there’s something about my olive/yellow complexion that can’t always pull off true neutrals and taupes. I feel best when I’m in warm-neutrals and while this palette isn’t exactly warm, it’s warmer than Biba (review here) or Glam (reviewed here).

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Eyeshadow Palette

I’m obsessed and 100% think it’s the best palette launched this year. It has a beautiful mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics. Some of the metallic eyeshadows have an almost wet foiled effect when applied with fingers (with a brush the shimmer isn’t as intense). I love that she added a warm matte pink and a warm dusty rose pink which helps warm up the eye looks in the best way possible.

I’ve only played around with this a few times – with the number of shades I think the combinations are endless but I’ve really like the look with Mesh, Vague, Wit, Ella and Sheen layered and then Silhouette as a liner.

Natasha Denona My Dream Collection Swatches + Review

November 7, 2022

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette Collection

Natasha Denona continues to be one of the best makeup lines for beautiful innovative palettes and colors. I love that she brings us so many beautiful unique launches – so much thought and care goes into her creations. Her new My Dream Collection has beautiful tones and textures. Today I have some swatches and a review of the items. Today’s the last day of the Sephora Holiday Savings event. If you’re looking for makeup that’s new (rather than repeats) definitely check her collection out.

I have swatches and a review but didn’t have time to shoot makeup looks for this launch. I still wanted to get the swatches up for you. I put up a poll on my Instagram stories and even though this collection launched weeks ago most of you still wanted swatches.

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette Collection

My Dream Eyeshadow Palette

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette

The Natasha Denona My Dream Eyeshadow Palette ($69) is absolutely stunning. I think it’s one of the best most unique palettes of the year. I’ve played with this a few times and you can create a wide range of looks. Every single shade applies beautifully. I love that she always has a great mix of textures: mattes, shimmers, sparkles, duo chromes. Some of her palettes are a little too trendy for my personal style. This one is on trend but has a good mix of colors that even conservative makeup lovers can wear it.

The palette has 13 new shades and 2 repromotes:

  • Famila is a warm dark brown
  • Babies is a stunning metallic mauve sparkle
  • Carpe-Diem is a warm matte brown
  • Serenity is a smooth shimmery taupe
  • Aspiration is a matte ultra deep cool brown
  • Blackest Black is a matte black
  • Instinct is a magenta satin
  • Thrill is a sparkling champagne
  • Unity is a matte warm terracotta peach
  • Risk is a beautiful smooth metallic reddish plum
  • Invention is a sparkle topper with a orange bronze finish
  • Vision is a duochrome violet green pink nude
  • Edgy is a purple eggplant satin
  • Spontaneous is a shimmering champagne
  • Nurture is a matte cool brown

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette swatches

Colors layer beautifully. Combinations are endless. Color range is amazing with light shades, medium shades, deep shades, bold pops. Absolutely love.

My Dream Cheek Trio

Natasha Denona My Dream Cheek Trio

Natasha Denona’s My Dream Cheek Trio ($48) is a beautiful palette I think will suit a wide range of skin tones. It has a Cream Blush which is a dusty neutral-cool pink (has a velvety finish), Glow Cream Base (shimmery creamy nude that melts into the skin, has fine shimmer) and Dream Glow Highlighter (another shimmery champagne, gel to powder finish). I think all three are beautiful and very easy to wear. The highlighters have a very similar vibe to her other cheek products. I still think this is a beautiful one you can wear this holiday for a polished effortless look.

Natasha Denona My Dream Cheek Trio

Colors apply beautifully and have very good pigment. They’re easy to layer and blend. They don’t emphasize my pores or skin texture. Love that the highlighters can also be used on the eyes.

My Dream Lipstick, Lip Gloss, Lip Pencil

Natasha Denona My Dream Lipstick, Lip Gloss and Lip Pencil

The last three items I have swatched are for the lips. My Dream Lipstick ($27) is a neutral cool mauve pink that’s super creamy and opaque. My Dream Lip Gloss ($27) has a beautiful smooth texture in a neutral mauve pink with medium coverage and a tiny bit of shimmer. My Dream Lip Crayon ($24) is an ultra pigmented long-wear lip pencil in a nude mauve color.

Natasha Denona My Dream Collection Lip swatches

Texture and pigment-wise all three are beautiful and excellent in quality. Unfortunately the colors did not work on my medium olive complexion. They have a bit too much grey undertone to work for my pigmented lips and tan skin. I think these would be super flattering on cool skin tones or light-fair complexions.

Overall a beautiful collection with lots to love. Out of all her palettes my favorites are still her Glam and Biba Palettes. The new My Dream Collection Palette is truly unique though so if you’re one looking for something new and innovative, this is the palette to try.

I have a quick roundup of what I hauled from the Sephora sale below. You can click on each item to shop directly from Sephora if you’re interested! I also bought this Hourglass Brush Set (not featured in the collage).

Natasha Denona Glam Face and Eye Palettes

December 5, 2021

Natasha Denona Glam Face and Eye Palette Review

Today I have a look at the new Natasha Denona Glam Face and Eye Palettes ($59 each). I hauled both a few weeks ago from Sephora and have been playing around with both.

Right now Sephora is having a special Beauty For All Savings Event for Beauty Insider members! From 12/3 through 12/12 use the code GIFTEASY to save 20% off your entire purchase. The code is a one-time use, Sephora Collection gets 30% off.

The Natasha Denona Glam Face Palettes each have one cream blush, highlighter and five eyeshadows. There are two options in Light and Dark and I love them both.

Light Palette

Natasha Denona Glam Face and Eye Palette in Light

The Natasha Denona Glam Face and Eye Palette in Light is more natural on my skin. Blush is a soft warm rose with a velvety cream texture. Highlighter also has that interesting hybrid powder-gel texture with an intense glow with finely milled shimmer. It’s not as sharp as some of her others but you can definitely build and layer for a more intense highlight.

The eyeshadows are a mix of mattes and sparkles. They’re soft, smooth, easy to blend and come in perfect neutral tones! For me the lighter shadows still need 1-2 more deeper colors for liner or definition, but I love the entire look.

Dark Palette

The Natasha Denona Glam Face and Eye Palette in Dark is actually my favorite of the two. The tones are beautiful with warm neutrals. It has a similar vibe to the Light Palette but the Dark one has darker more dramatic tones. I would actually love it if she had combined both into one palette. Shimmers are very sparkly but apply smoothly. There will be some fallout with application but once on the lids I found shades stayed put well.

Overall lovely palettes for an almost-complete makeup look. I do think the Dark Palette has enough colors for me to create a complete look. The Light Palette is one I think fair to light skintones will find suitable for a complete look. For me I need one more darker shadow color, but it’s not a deal breaker since I almost always add a pencil liner anyways.

Color palette, quality, texture, wear is all excellent. Pigment is easy to build and control with layering and blending. I love how these wear and think they’re perfect for holiday! I find them reasonably priced and with the Sephora promo it makes them even better!

Natasha Denona Retro Eyeshadow Palette Review + Swatches

October 20, 2021

Natasha Denona Retro Eyeshadow Palette | The Beauty Lookbook

Always excited to see what Natasha Denona launches! From day one I’ve loved the unique and personal touch she’s added to all of her palettes. Today I have a look at her Retro Eyeshadow Palette ($65, available at Sephora). The color scheme has a mix of pinks, purples, silvers and sparkles for a burgundy mauve eye look.

The Retro Eyeshadow Palette has 15 shades. There is a mix of velvety mattes, duochrome sparkles, shimmers, and sparkle toppers. Color payoff and performance is true to her usual style – great pigment, smooth texture, easy to blend and layer colors. I think this one has a really nice range and variation of light, medium and deep shades.

Natasha Denona Retro Eyeshadow Palette | The Beauty Lookbook

I’ve always been a neutral eye person or one who likes golden bronze tones. Purple isn’t really me, I don’t think I can pull it off well like many of my other beauty friends. I think there are plenty of non-purple tones in this palette to create a more neutral look but I did create a purple mauve look just for fun.

Natasha Denona Retro Eyeshadow Palette | The Beauty Lookbook

Colors in this palette:

  • Glitz is a sparkling pink gold
  • Andy is a soft light mauve
  • Jude shimmery taupe silver
  • Mod pale off white pink matte
  • Vivenne pale medium dusty pink
  • Groove deep plum
  • Opart bark brown
  • Psychedelic sparkling glitter pink
  • Go-Go medium warm pink matte
  • Patty pretty warm shimmer copper pink
  • Swing shimmery plum
  • Nude Mauve greyed-mauve matte
  • Rebellion deep plum red
  • Helio sparkling taupe
  • Amara matte plum brown

My favorite shades in this palette are Glitz and Helio for ones I think are the most unique and prettiest!

Natasha Denona Mini Love Collection + New Lip Liners

February 6, 2021

Natasha Denona Mini Love Collection Review

Natasha Denona recently launched her Mini Love Collection with new shades for eyes, lips ad cheeks. I’m thrilled to be able to share a look at the new collection today! She also added new shades of pencils in her I Need a Nude Lip Liner formula and I hauled a few colors from Sephora.

___________

Natasha Denona Love Cheek Duo

Natasha Denona Mini Love Collection - Love Cheek Duo

The Natasha Denona Love Cheek Duo has a soft cream blush in a pink coral cream and an iridescent pink gold shimmer. The cream dries down to a soft matte finish and while it’s more of a baby pink on me once blended it looks more natural and soft. The shimmery highlighter has a beautiful multi-dimensional sheen that flashes pink and gold without being too glitzy.

The product description says the Cream Blush in the Duo is the same as the cream from her Diamond and Blush Palette Darya (reviewed here). I pulled mine out to compare even though it’s pretty old and the colors are identical on my skin. The Highlighter in this Duo is similar to the Duo Glow in the Diamond Palette but the one in the new duo pulls more pink in undertone.

Natasha Denona Mini Love Collection - Love Cheek Duo

Performance-wise the Love Cheek Duo has excellent wear time and is easy to blend. The highlighter isn’t too shimmery and I think when layered they can give a lovely soft delicate glow. Swatch comparisons below to her Mini Bloom Blush (review here), Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Strawberry Drip, Chanel Spring 2021 Blush Highlighter Duo (review here).

Mini Love Palette

Natasha Denona Mini Love Eyeshadow Palette

Up next is her Mini Love Palette. I love her mini eyeshadow palettes because they come with perfectly coordinated colors for a complete look. The colors in this palette all perform beautifully – there is a nice mix of mattes and shimmers. Quality and performance wise colors blend nicely, they’re pigmented, lasting power is good. I just didn’t like the colors for me. I personally do not like purple eyeshadows for me. They don’t mix well with my olive complexion.

Colors include a sparkling mauve pink, matte mauve, deep matte plum, shimmery pale pink and shimmery rose pink.

I Need a Nude Lipstick in Amorosa

Natasha Denona Lipstick Amorosa

For the lips there’s a new lip color called Amorosa which is a nude pink. Her nude lip colors come in a wide range of options and undertones, many are too light for my complexion, but I really like the look of Amorosa! It’s a nude pink and gives me a true-nude lip look. It is better if I pair it with a slightly deeper lip pencil and blend but I’ve swatched it below by itself for you to get an idea of how it looks. It’s creamy, opaque and has full coverage.

Below wearing the Natasha Denona Mini Love Collection including her Mini Love Eyeshadow Palette, Love Cheek Duo, Amorosa Lipstick. Top is from Revolve. For my base I’m wearing the Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Foundation in LM14 (review and swatched here).

I Need a Nude Lip Pencils

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Lip Pencil Review

Last but not least as a nude lip lover I hauled some of her I Need a Nude Lip Pencils. Formula-wise they’re perfect. They have a smooth texture with high pigment and a natural matte finish. They’re not drying and glide on the lips perfectly. Lasting power is phenomenal and stays put for hours without budging or fading.

Color-wise I think these are best when used as a lip liner and combined with a lipstick + gloss. I know many of you like to use liners as a line and fill kind of product, like a lip crayon. For me these nudes pull too nude if I apply all over the lips. If you go to her Instagram @natashadenona and look at her Live Swatches highlights she has really helpful demo, application tips and live swatches.

For color selection nudes can be tricky depending on your skin and natural lip tone. A lot of nudes that I like don’t always work for you especially if you don’t have warm olive tones like me. My pigmented lips vary in color day to day. Sometimes they’re pink, other times they’re more purple, other days they look more brown. For me these lip pencils look really similar on my arm. If you look at the swatches on the @natashadenona Instagram Highlights you will see the colors have more variation on lighter skin tone.

She has her lip pencils labeled with a color code to distinguish the undertone (NP = neutral pink, NB = neutral beige). Colors I bought (please note they look so close on my arm in the photo but there are differences in undertone, especially when on the lips):

  • NP1 Natasha – light neutral mauve pink
  • NP2 Ilona – light medium pink brown
  • NP3 Julia – medium pink
  • NB2 Noa – medium beige
  • NB3 Dana – cool beige brown

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Lip Pencil swatches

The two that worked best for me are Ilona and Julia, but they pull very light on my complexion. The Pat McGrath Permagel Lip Pencil colors in Done Undone or Buff or Structure work better for my lip tone and complexion for a natural lip (swatched here) – but these have more color while the Natasha Denona Lip Pencils are nudes just as the name implies.

Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette and Holiday Collection Review | The Beauty Look Book

I have a new Natasha Denona haul with her latest launches! As usual she has some stunning new palettes and a new glow highlighter. So many of you are really excited about the Glam Eyeshadow palette and asked for swatches. I’m thrilled to have them up for you today.

Glam Eyeshadow Palette

Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette | The Beauty Look Book

The Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette is one of her smaller 15 pans similar to her Bronze Eyeshadow Palette versus her larger ones like the Biba Palette. On my skin tone Glam is a neutral-cool palette with a wide range of textures. It has a great mix of mattes and shimmers and in this one she labeled each color for placement such as Center Eye Lid, Outer Eye Lid, Crease, Transition etc.

Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette | The Beauty Look Book

Colors are as follows:

  • Top Row: shimmery rose, metallic taupe, shimmery champagne, soft matte brown, soft chalk matte
  • Middle Row: soft medium matte brown, medium matte pink cocoa tan, deep matte cool brown, shimmery silver, shimmery cool silver
  • Bottom Row: metallic pale gold, medium shimmery brown, shimmery cool champagne, metallic taupe and shimmery champange

Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette swatches | The Beauty Look Book

Texture is smooth and easy to blend. I adore her shimmers and metallic colors – I think they apply so beautifully on the lids and layer on top of mattes in the most exquisite way. Mattes are best for smoking or using all over the lid – they may apply streaky on the arm/hand but blend nicely on the eyes.

I really love this one! If you own a lot of neutrals I suspect you will have repeats in your stash. I do like the convenience of having so many shades in one palette. You can really create a full eye look with the palette. Other similar palettes like Tom Ford Nude Dip or even the First Frost have a similar vibe and tone – but I often have to add liner or a dark matte eyeshadow to line or add depth.

Mini Zendo Eyeshadow Palette

Her new Mini Zendo Eyeshadow Palette is absolutely gorgeous! I love her minis because I find them really convenient and easy to use. I also think she comes up with the most beautiful color combinations. When I first saw it I didn’t know exactly how to use it as the metallic silver/green/taupe threw me off – it’s stunning but I wasn’t sure how to apply it with the other colors. I followed one of her tutorials on her Instagram highlights @natashadenona and found it really helpful for placement and order of application. With some blending and layering I added the green shade last as a topper and it gave the eye so much depth and glow.

I Need A Nude Glow Highlighter

Natasha Denona I Need a Nude Glow Highlighter | The Beauty Look Book

I wasn’t planning on buying this one but I saw it at Sephora and had to have it. Her I Need A Nude Glow Highlighter is a single champagne nude highlighter with a soft candlelit glow. On my skin it pulls warm and gold. Metallic highlighters usually show or emphasize texture on my skin but this one has a smooth finish and makes the skin look almost like glass. Color-wise I don’t think it is the most unique. I found it similar to the one from the Tan and Bronze Glow Palette.

I Need A Nude Lipstick in Andrea

Natasha Denona Andrea Lipstick | The Beauty Look Book

There are two new lipsticks in her latest holiday launch and I opted for the I Need A Nude Lipstick in Andrea. Colors this pale are usually a nightmare for me to wear or pull off. Her tutorials showed it looked pretty on a wide range of skintones so I was willing to try it. I have slightly mixed feelings. Formula and coverage-wise it’s really really good. It has smooth opaque coverage without any streaking or caking. Color-wise it’s a little too pale and light by itself, but for me light colors are always tricky. I applied it by itself below – if I added a deeper liner like MAC Lip Pencil in Whirl or Stripdown and added a bit of gloss I think I could make it work.

Swatch comparisons to a few other neutrals:

Overall I love everything. I think the Glam Palette is a lovely addition to her lineup and if you have been wanting a neutral-cool palette this is a great one. I do think her Mini Zendo Palette can be a bit tricky to apply with color placement but I highly recommend you watch her tutorials on her Instagram Story Highlights – it’s so inspirational with her color combinations and I love watching her technique!
