Natasha Denona Aluminum (10M) Eyeshadow
Natasha Denona Aluminum (10M) Eyeshadow

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.08 oz.) comes in 66 shades with four distinct finishes (Matte, Duo-Chrome, Metallic, and Sparkling). According to the brand, the eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “full, rich and intense color that won’t fade out, be “long-lasting,” and smooth. The majority of the shimmery shades were very pigmented with a soft consistency that was something just right and other times a little prone to crumbling/loosening in the pan, while the mattes were smooth but quite powdery, which resulted it color that didn’t adhere to bare skin as readily. The texture of most shades is soft, blendable, and most of the shimmery shades I’ve tested applied well to bare skin. The wear was fairly consistent, but there was some variance from shade to shade (which didn’t seem related to finish). The wear has ranged from five to eight hours, depending on the shade. Primer helps with longevity, adding two to three hours to the shade’s no-primer wear time, but they seem like shorter-wearing eyeshadows compared to most powder formulas I’ve tried.

Check out my first review for more depth about the formula as well as a pricing breakdown for singles compared to palettes.

Aluminum (10M) is a bright silver with a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a really dense consistency that applies best with a firm, flat brush patted onto the skin. The texture felt a little thicker overall, so it didn’t blend as well with more matte finishes. The color started to crease after six and a half hours of wear. Buxom Chihuahua (P, $18.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Interstellar (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #4 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Silver Strike (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Shellshock (LE, $19.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Iridescent Shell (110) (LE, $13.00) is darker (90% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Vivacious Maguari (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Bottle Green (15M) is a muted, medium-dark green with warm, olive undertones and a soft, frosted sheen. It had fantastic pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and buttery texture that wasn’t too soft or too firm in the pan. It applied well to bare skin and wore for eight hours.

Emerald Green (16M) is a medium-dark emerald green with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it wasn’t fully opaque. I was able to build it up for opaque coverage with two to three passes. The color wore well for seven hours before creasing. City Color Beach Cottage (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #2 (P) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Buxom Pre-nup (P, $0.05) is cooler (85% similar).

Ochre (61P) is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a pearly sheen. This shade had great color payoff with a smooth, blendable texture that was almost cream-like and applied well to the lid. I saw slight creasing after eight hours of wear.
