Aeris

Natasha Denona Aeris Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays that features four shimmering, sparkly shades and one matte. The first and last shades are supposed to be sheer, though only the last one was truly sheer. This is a palette that will work best for someone who typically uses a glitter adhesive or likes to use their shimmery eyeshadows with a dampened brush for maximum pigmentation, evenness, and wear.

Nude (140CP)

Nude (140CP) is a medium-dark peach with warm, rosy undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was soft but more loosely pressed, so it did sheer out a bit when applied dry and had slight fallout during application, though it was described as sheer (it was more semi-opaque than sheer from my experience). It applied best with a flat, synthetic brush or else a dampened brush (I did not feel like I needed glitter adhesive, though). On me, the eyeshadow lasted for eight hours with slight fallout (dry).

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.

Red Bronze (141K)

Red Bronze (141K) is a deep red with cooler undertones and warmer, gold glitter. It had a very dense, firm texture–this one felt more cream-like than powder–that was a pain to diffuse and blend out, regardless of brush type or whether the brush was dry or damp. I did not like fingertips for application either as the majority of product stuck to my fingertip and did not transfer to the lid. I had to really jab and push the product from the pan onto the lid and build it up. The eyeshadow wore well for nine hours and left a slight stain behind with minor fallout (impressive, given the size of the glitter).

Burnt Terracotta (142CM)

Burnt Terracotta (142CM) is a deep copper with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The consistency was soft without being powdery and was easy to blend out. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Ice Blue (143CP)

Ice Blue (143CP) is a muted, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The color payoff was nearly opaque with a a moderately dense, firmer texture that felt almost wet-like to the touch. It blended out fairly evenly, though it looked a bit faded when I tried applying it with a (dry) brush. For maximum impact, one will want to use fingertips and/or a dampened brush. This shade lasted for eight hours with slight fallout.

Peach Bronze (144CP)

Peach Bronze (144CP) is a medium, coral-orange with warm, red undertones and a gold, sparkling finish. It was supposed to be “sheer,” and it absolutely was–sheer coverage dry, and as I was quite surprised, I also swatched it damp to see if that improved the coverage, and it did (semi-opaque). The consistency was soft, glittery, and prone to sheering out so there was some fallout during application. This shade could use a glitter adhesive or be applied with a dampened brush for the best results. It wore well for seven and a half hours with moderate fallout.

Still feeling happy with my purchase. It’ll be fun to play with. The nude colour is making me think of the MAC holiday collection single, that gold shadow with the pink sparkle, very pretty. I hope it’s a dupe!

I was in love with this palette until I saw a D+ for Red Bronze: Yikes. For a $48 quint, I feel that it should be at minimum an A- before plunking down almost 50 smackaroos, IDK? Before this day is over, I may well talk myself out of it, and that *other* one, as well. There’s a beautiful dupe within Lila for Red Bronze, I’ve got the other shades on lock, with the lone exception of Peach Bronze (easily remedied w/ a single of MAC Expensive Pink!)

I wore this the other day and it was a pretty look that lasted. The red and blue shadows had no fallout and looked sparkly and great at the end of the day. I’m glad I have this one.So happy we now have Natasha Denona at my Sephora!

I bought this and when I opened the package it was night time and the shimmer shades were just glistening.The looked extremely beautiful like jewelry for your eyes.The blue is such a stunning shade and the matte is so beautiful I haven’t gotten a chance to play with this yet but I’m excited to wear it!

I like this collection of shades at first glance. It looks very pretty on you, Christine. For me, it’s too expensive and I really don’t need these shades, but it’s pretty to look at. It’s surprising that it would have a couple of duds in it. Not worth the high price.

I purchased this one back during the VIB sale and I just grabbed the other one yesterday. But I am happy with this purchase, even with Red Bronze being as finicky as it is. I find that I need a sticky base to get it to work. I end up using Peach Bronze and Nude as highlighters as well as shadows. I use them with a shader brush and layer it on top of another highlighter and it’s so shiny and pretty.
