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.

Moonstone (59M) is a bright, golden peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen.

Cool Bronze (31M) is a medium-dark copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It is by no means cool-toned at all, in case the name made you think it might be! It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too loose in the pan. It applied beautifully on bare skin, blended out well, and wore for seven and a half hours before creasing. Zoeva Pure Ganache (P) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Golden Flesh (68M) is a medium-dark, coppery-bronze with warm undertones and a greenish-gold sheen (not a duochrome, though).

Arizona (88V) is a dark brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It is incredibly powdery such that it easily sheers out and leaves behind a sheer layer of color, even though it seems quite pigmented–just as long as you don’t blend it out! It was buildable, though, and it seemed to look decent on the lid (far better than anticipated!). The color lasted for eight hours, even, before fading. Make Up For Ever M636 Cappuccino (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Mocha (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Unspoken (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).

Sand Storm (90V) is a medium-dark, orange-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation but was very powdery, which resulted in the color sheering out more easily than one might expect. It was blendable on the skin and managed to wear for eight hours before showing signs of fading. Too Faced Nuts About U (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Cleopatra (P) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Wrath (P) is cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Sienna (P, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar).
