Natasha Denona Glam (Darkish) Face Palette Overview & Swatches

Glam (Dark)

Natasha Denona Glam (Dark) Face PaletteNatasha Denona Glam (Dark) Face Palette ($59.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new (seemingly permanent!) eye and cheek palette. It included five eyeshadows–three mattes and two shimmers–along with a cream blush and powder highlighter. The eyeshadows and powder highlighter were lovely; pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing with only light fallout during application being noted with the shimmery eyeshadows. I found the cream blush texture to be harder to work with as it was drier and stiff, so this translated to a more challenging application that felt more limited.

Glam Dark (407KS)

Glam Dark (407KS) is a medium-dark brown with warmer, golden undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle over a pearly finish. This shade appeared more satin-to-pearl in its sheen when applied to bare skin and would need to be applied with a dampened brush to yield a more metallic finish. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled but felt a little drier/thinner compared to most of the brand’s shimmers, so I had more issues with fallout during the initial application than is typical. It wore well for eight and a half hours but didn’t have further fallout issues.

Glam Dark (408CM)

Glam Dark (408CM) is a rich, yellowy medium-dark brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation paired with a smooth, silky consistency that was blendable and not too powdery in the pan, so it didn’t sheer out too readily and wasn’t prone to fallout. The color showed signs of fading after nine hours of wear.

Formula Overview

The majority of the brand’s eyeshadows are quite pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. The eyeshadows have improved over time, particularly with respect to longevity (without a primer). The original formula often creased on me within seven to eight hours, whereas the more current formula wears eight to nine hours with fading (instead of full-on creasing). The more matte finishes tend to be a bit more velvety, substantial, and less dry/powdery compared to prior iterations.

The metallic finish is often the creamiest, slightly denser in feel, but has excellent pigmentation, adhesion, and blendability. The sparkling shades can have some fallout, depending on how they’re applied and how sparkly they are, so they sometimes work better with fingertips or a dampened brush; they can also run sheerer compared to other finishes.

Cream-Powders are the more unique formulation and tend to have firmer, almost stiff, consistencies and more semi-opaque, watercolor-esque coverage. They are longer-wearing, but they can take a few uses to learn how to use. This formula has also improved compared to when it first debuted–it is a bit more yielding now.

Glam Dark (409CM)

Glam Dark (409CM) is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was slightly thinner and not quite as blendable compared to most of the brand’s matte eyeshadows, though it was still easy to work with and diffuse along the edges. It had opaque color payoff that lasted well for nine hours before fading visibly.

Glam Dark (410KS)

Glam Dark (410KS) is a bright, lighter rosy brown with warm undertones and an intense, sparkling and metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, blendable consistency that felt lightweight, thin, and almost airy, but there was noticeable fallout during application. It was a shimmer I’d recommend applying with a dampened brush or a fingertip, though I still had light fallout with a fingertip as the softness of the texture made it easy to pick up too much product with a fingertip. It stayed on well for nine hours with light fallout over time.

Glam Dark (411CM)

Glam Dark (411CM) is a darker, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out readily as the texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Glam Dark (Cream Blush)

Glam Dark (Cream Blush) is a darker, reddish-copper base with flecks of gold micro-sparkle throughout. The texture was quite dense, thicker, and drier; it felt like a little like drying clay that had been compacted into a pan. I had the best luck using a synthetic, stippling brush roughly jabbed and swirled through the pan, which gave me an even, sheer layer of product that I could build up with two to three layers. The blush itself lasted for eight and a half hours on my skin before fading a bit.

Also, while fingertips picked up more coverage, the product did not want to transfer from fingertip to cheek readily, so it required more pressure that was more apt to disturb base layers and deliver an uneven result, which made using a brush the better bet.

Glam Dark (Star Glow)

Glam Dark (Star Glow) is a richer, medium-dark gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage, though it could be used with a lighter hand to deliver more buildable coverage if preferred. The consistency was smooth, finely-milled, and so soft that it felt almost wet to the touch. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading visibly.
