Baby Glam

Natasha Denona Baby Glam Micro Eyeshadow Palette ($19.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new, limited edition micro palette–three mini-sized pans in a plastic compact–that features three shades from the permanent (full-size) Glam palette. I’m happy to report that the quality was consistent with the original palette, and I’d say that the shimmer shade was actually smoother and creamier in the micro palette.

I wish they had released two Baby Glams, since the third shade is very light and likely limits the versatility of this palette on more, rather than less, skin tones.

Glam (321M)

Glam (321M) is a medium taupe with subtle, warm brown undertones and cooler, almost silvery shimmer over a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that adhered well to bare skin and blended out with ease. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.08 oz. - $362.50 Per Ounce

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 (323CM)

Glam (323CM) is a medium taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage paired with a smooth, velvety texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but didn’t have fallout and wasn’t prone to sheering out on my eye. It lasted nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Glam (324CM)

Glam (324CM) is a very light taupe, or grayish beige, with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was somewhat powdery and not as velvety/substantial as the other matte in the palette. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

I’d been waiting for this! The colours aren’t super exciting but they’re very cosy so I can see myself getting some mileage out of it. I love ogling bright eyeshadow but in the end, when it comes to buying, more often than not, I chicken out and go for the safer option like this.

Isn’t it great that it scored so well and is so very usable and practical? Staring at 24 assorted shadows that run the gamut from basic to bright to terrifyingly bright doesn’t make it easy to get ready in the morning! With something like this, you can look fantastic and work appropriate in a jiffy.

I agree with you, this is very “usable” for me! I find it very hassle-free. I love playing with colour at home but when I go out the door I prefer not to stand out too much, though I’d probably feel a bit tempted to add some coral -I’ve been using coral a lot on my eyes, though I still don’t know how that came to be. That and Haux.

This puts me in mind a lot of the 2 Naked Basics palettes (my daughter has the first one and I’ve got the 2nd). In reality, for most people, this could well be about the only eyeshadow palette they need.

There are plenty of people who wear only one or two eyeshadows in a look. They can also be used to add to an existing launch – the same purpose of singles, duos, etc.

I don’t have a lot of real estate under my low eyebrows! haha! If I did maybe I’d be more adventurous but as it is, too many eyeshadows can turn to moosh in no time. And then I’d try to fix it by adding yet another colour… and you can guess where this is going when you have to be somewhere soon! Sometimes I just can’t be bothered or don’t have the time and that’s when something easy like this would come in.

I don’t really like buying huge palettes. They’re often full of shades I’m not drawn to, and I try to keep my collection full of only things that really excite. I typically buy singles so these micro palettes actually appeal to me quite a bit!

Not everyone is like the majority of people who post here. They’re more subdued in their makeup purchases and use and for them, this would be ideal. I know people who only have 2 or 3 small eyeshadow palettes or maybe even just 2 or 3 singles…it’s all they want and all they need.

I can justify buying twenty singles in one go and getting some in the mix I’m not particularly in love with it but I can’t bring myself to go for a palette when straight off the bat I just don’t like some of the shades or I know I wouldn’t wear half of them all that much. I browse and browse, and I browse some more and in the end I just can’t bring myself to close my eyes and jump because I know it’ll be going in the bin at some point and I can get over the guilt. It takes me a loong time to get over the guilt of throwing barely used stuff in the bin. Now more than ever. I confess, hand over my heart, I’m a palettephobe – there I’ve said it!

It is a good little trio of cool toned neutral shades – but I think an additional shade to make it a quad would have made this a bit more versatile. And I do agree with you Christine, having a light and deep version of the Baby Glam would make it suitable for varied skintones.
That shimmery taupe shade is one of my favourite shades from the palette.

I’d need a lighter shade for my browbone area, but other than that I think this would be a nice trio to travel with, for a short trip, maybe a weekend. I’d get bored using only three (four) shades for a longer time.
(I’ll try to buy the big Glam palette next time there’s a good deal on it. It the postal services worked as they should, not losing things in transit, I’d already have the big palette. Still feeling sulky that three of my orders got lost since August.)

One of the reasons I really love the Smashbox Minimalist palette. It’s really small and compact but manages to contain all the shades needed for a perfect get-away palette, including TWO brow-bone type shades.

I hope it’s still available. I don’t know about Smashbox but Sephora has really sliced away at the Covershot 8 pan palettes they carry. I hope you can get your hands on it. I think it’s a really good one. In fact, we’re going away for a week in a few days and I’m taking that palette with me, along with a Nars duo and I think that might be the only shadows I take…

I went to low buy from no buy and ordered the palette, it looks really nice for travel and everyday easy looks.
I have a LE I think from Smashbox in the same format, it has a purple and some very shimmery shades, unless I’m mixing it up with something else, taking that one along would probably be enough not to get tired of the eyeshadows for at least a week.
I once went to South Africa for almost 3 weeks, taking only one neutral palette, I was so tired of it when I got home, I don’t think I ever used it again.
I have few colours when it comes to clothes, that may be a reason I feel I need many makeup colours, maybe, perhaps, I’m not sure, just guessing 🙂

I know people seem to be unhappy about this release, but I actually like it. I’m not a huge fan of Natasha Denona’s palettes, but I usually like two or three shades from each one. I also like that this is perfectly neutral–neither too warm nor cool. Unless I have time to spare, I usually only wear three eyeshadows, so this is perfect for me.

I’m not opposed to a 3 pan palette at all. It’s just that these shades will likely be very unflattering on me. Also it would have made sense for this to be $15.
