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.

Glaze (12M) is a light-medium champagne with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended well and stayed on for seven hours before creasing slightly.

Gray-Brown (38M) is a medium-dark, taupe brown with cooler gray leanings but still had a warmer base paired with a frosted sheen. It had great pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft. This shade applied well, blended out nicely, and wore for seven and a half hours on me.

Vintage (49M) is a medium-dark taupe brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied well and was easy to use. This shade started to crease after eight hours of wear.

Calypso Blue (05M) is a medium-dark, coppery brown base with strong, red undertones and a blue-purple shift paired with a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a slight sparkle to it, so it didn’t have the same smoothness that other shades in similar finishes have in the line, which resulted in slight fall out during application. It applied well otherwise with good blendability, coverage, and it wore for seven hours before creasing.

Electric VIolet (28V) is a medium, violet purple with cooler tones and a satin shimmer over a mostly matte finish. The consistency was thin, powdery, and a pain to use. It didn’t build up well, and it tended to look splotchy and uneven applied to the skin. It would need a white base to perform decently; the only way I could get it to work was cheat by using one of the more shimmery shades underneath it, which gave it something to grab onto and hid a lot of the unevenness. It faded after six hours.

Powder Blue (84V) is a muted, medium-dark blue-teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was very, very powdery, even though it seemed pigmented–you just can’t blend or disturb it once it is on. I also had some issues with this darkening in some places but not all, so I would only recommend using this over a good primer as it cannot handle variations in the skin’s natural oils at all. The color lasted for six and a half hours.

Navy (01V) is a muted, dark navy blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, but the powdery consistency makes it harder to work with unless you have naturally dry skin or a smoothing primer underneath it as it tends to latch onto areas more strongly than others (think of how the skin naturally has some oil on it, so it darkens and adheres better to those areas, but this makes it really obvious). It wore for closer to eight hours, making it one of the longer-wearing shades I’ve tried from the brand.
