Bloom

Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette ($55.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new cheek palette that includes a cream highlighter, cream blush, powder highlighter, and powder blush. It’s a more edited take on the brand’s larger, six-pan Cheek Palettes that I raved about last year. All four shades performed well, and they layered well together in various combinations (cream with cream, powder with powder, a mix, and all together). I didn’t find that the four shades created as much contrast/variety in overall looks compared to the larger Citurs and Darya palettes, but the quality of the four here was fantastic. I’d love to see Natasha Denona release a whole line of the Duo Glows as a standalone product range.

Peach

Peach is a soft, pinky-coral base with very fine, golden pearl. It’s supposed to be “buildable” to allow for layering (and it did layer well with the other products in the palette). It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation–at most, mostly opaque–but as it is a light color, it wasn’t like boom! pigment (and never would be). It had a soft, subtle glow that was glass-like and never shimmery or pore-emphasizing.

It applied well over bare skin as well as over cream/liquid foundation (I tried Too Faced Born This Way and Tom Ford Traceless Stick with it). The texture was lightly tacky initially with a firmer, denser consistency that I felt I had to dig at a bit with my stippling brush to pick up product. It seemed to yield a bit better after a few uses. The product applied evenly, spread and diffused with little effort, and wore well for nine hours on me before it started to fade a bit.

Fuchsia

Fuchsia is rich, raspberry red with cool, pink undertones and fine, golden micro-shimmer. It had a subtle, satiny finish when applied and buffed out–not overtly shimmery but not flat or matte. For as intense as the shade was, it applied and diffused incredibly easily, though it tended to look more like a pop of bluish-pink rather than the deeper red it appeared in the pan. The consistency was lightly creamy, almost a touch tacky in the pan, but it didn’t seem to remain wet or tacky on my skin. It stayed on well for over 10 hours with minimal fading.

For more true-to-pan color on cheeks, I’d recommend applying a sheer layer to get the overall shape of the color and then applying more heavily just where you want the most intense color and coverage, then gently buffing the edge of that with the first layer. I felt like that method gave me control over intensity but ensured I didn’t end up spreading and diffusing product on half my face as the blush was just so blendable!

Ingredients

Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Mica, Polyurethane 44, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Copernicia Cerifera Cera (Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax), Candelilla Cera (Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax), Silica, Dimethicone, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Aluminum Hydroxide,

Light Rose

Light Rose is a light-medium peach with warm, golden undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle. At times, it seemed more sparkle than base pigment, but when I applied it to my cheeks and blended out the powder, it gave me a subtle blush with a moderate sheen with faint sparkle. It didn’t seem quite as sparkly on my skin and seemed to have a smoother, less glittery finish overall, though I’d say it had moderate sheen rather than an “extreme” one. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation (it was described as “buildable”) that applied evenly and blended out with little effort. The highlighter lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before starting to fade slightly.

Vibrant Coral & Golden

Vibrant Coral & Golden is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with lots of golden shimmer and a metallic sheen. There also seemed to be faint, almost violet-hued shimmer at times. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was dense without being too firmly pressed in the pan. It appeared more orange in the pan, slightly orange at an angle when applied, but it was predominantly a pink-coral on me.

The blush applied easily over my skin, blended out as I applied it, and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture, though it had shiny, lightly metallic finish. Applying the cream blush only brought out the pink tones of the Duo Glow, while layering on the powder highlighter amplified the finish and made it shinier. Alone, the blush wore beautifully for nine hours on me before fading a bit.

I am totally enamored with the beauty of this smaller palette! It is very well coordinated and I believe that it can give one a few different ways to go, even if not quite as different as say Citron would and could. I may be getting this during April’s Rouge sale, I think!

Yeah, this is definitely a little more tone-on-tone compared to Citrus! That greenish highlighter really creates a lot of different lookk.

This looks so gorgeous on you and the pairing with the cranberry palette is lovely!

I am on a huge Natasha Denona kick since the brand landed in Europe! I started with the Lila palette in October… Daria in January… And I still want to get my hands on the Gold and the cranberry palette. Haha.

I really like the small release this time around… Now I have to figure out if this would be very fair skin friendly! The darya palette really made me discover I could be a (cream) blush lover! 😊

I feel like the richest shade/color, Fuchsia, is quite workable – like not at all intimidating to apply, easier than powders of the same type of shade, IMO.

Thank you for the insight! The cream blush and duo glow in the darya palette are already quite intense really easily but they blend so seamlessly that I can wear the palette on the daily.

I would not mind a few shades to be realised as singles but on another hand I really appreciate how Natasha Denona build het blush /highlighter palettes. It makes my life easier! Haha

Marie-Estelle, I am very fair, like you, and while applying a less pigmented or lighter shade blush is easier and quicker, I find that I can wear these really intense shades if I swirl my brush off on my wrist or a tissue before going to the cheek. I actually like the Kleenex’s with the sort of lotion infused tissues as they grip and remove just the right amount of product. You have probably tried this but thought I would mention it too. I know it involves wasting some product but since I can’t remember ever panning a blush, I am okay with it!!

Oh thank you so much for your advice Deborah ! I didn’t know this trick with the infused kleenex. Not finding a solution a few ago I decided to invest in the suqqu cheek brush and it allows me to manage most brush now (some I try need to tap the away first)!

Years ago I was afraid of waste… Now I just want to use it as much as possible and enjoy. Considering it took me 2 years of intensive work on one blush to pan it, I am not afraid anymore either! Lol

I’m very pale, cool toned too and I’m tossing up between Darya and Bloom.. Fuschia looks a little intimidating but I like how travel friendly Bloom is compared to Darya.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Natasha Denona really more of those small blush palettes. It might be worth waiting a bit more if the travel size aspect is really important for you.

I already traveled with Darya because I can use the tones with everything. It is like my cheeks but better kind of shades for fair and cool toned skin.

That’s a good point! Although if that ever were to happen, it would take forever for it to reach Australia…

From what you’ve described Darya sounds like the more “natural” palette for me, but I still want both! πŸ˜€

Yes, I’m fair and I can wear it. I just really blend out the dark red/fushsia. I have some pics of myself wearing if you want to click my link. I was scared of it at first too but its so pretty had to have it lol. I also really love the bottom right shade and highlight alone, as well. I’m wearing that combo today.

I do have Darya. I haven’t used it as much as I should but its a gorgeous palette. I like Bloom better because its more unique to my collection. The top right cream blush in Darya is my fav, love the shade of pink. I don’t regret Darya but I think I”ll get more use out of Bloom. I like coral shades more and I’ve been obsessed with the shades of the cream blush in Bloom. I’m fair-light neutral if that helps at all. Brown eyes/brown hair if that helps at all.

You are so pretty, Emily. The blush looks beautiful on you. I am going to wait and hopefully pick it up at the Sephora sale in a couple of months. I really love the fuschia shade and can’t wait to play with it.

Okay, so this might be worth really breaking my no buy. Although I did break it earlier in the week but only for a lipstick from ColourPop so I am not really counting that, LOL!! I love everything about this little mini palette. The colour story is right up my alley. The tone of the shades is gorgeous and I really like using layering blushes that involve putting down a cream base and topping with a powder, (when the formula allows for that), to get a really long lasting blush. The topper on the cake is that it is permanent and so I can wait until the spring sale. Win/Win!!

I love that Natasha Denona is having really few LE products and that they stay around long enough to grab them if they are! I am also on a low buy/no buy but I might end up getting it for a special occasion sometime in 2019!

I am getting this. Low-buy be damned. I started salivating when I saw this and I’m ecstatic that it has such a fantastic rating. Luckily, I cashed in points and I now have $100 from Sephora. Hopefully, the Rouge sale comes around before gift certificate expires because I’d love a discount on it.

Unfortunately Sephora does not allow you to use the $100 rewards with another promotion. I tried to use one during the last sale. I was bummed.

According to Trendmood, Sephora has started to allow multiple promo codes. Idk what the restrictions are, but this was supposed to start mid-January. Hopefully, they wouldn’t have gotten rid of it that quickly. But it is possible that this could be a restriction.

If you order online the website only allows one promotion code to be entered. However, if you shop in the store they will apply the certificate and the discount code. I know this because I purchased the ND gold palette in December and paid $3.50 after the 20% and $100 certificate was applied.

I am really tempted by this. I have seen YT videos by people with varied skin tones and it seems to look good on many skin tones.

This is stunning! If ND had the peach and light rose shade by themselves, I would buy it. The other two shades are far too bright and not the right shades for me personally. It is an excellent quad nonetheless.

Very impressive as I feared it would be 😁 It looks like it’s permanent so I don’t have to jump immediately. Also It’s not as big of an expenditure as the Darya which I love.

I grabbed this the morning it arrived. It is beautiful packaging and the perfect size!. I love that ND includes the hinged cover to protect the cremes from the powders! I thought it was an odd combo of colors at first but after your review, I understand it was probably carefully created that way. The duo glow looks too orange on me.
I hope that she creates a pinker coral version of this and maybe a more bronzy version as well?

Love this palette so much, I’m so glad I picked it up. It’s incredibly versatile as well! I’ve used it on my eyes and lips, and the looks have come out so beautiful!

My palette was just delivered today and I’ve used it and I already LOOOOVE it!!!!! So now I have all three face palettes, and I own quite a few single highlighters of hers. I’m a fan😁

And…just saw that it has the creams covered. I take it back. I’d totally go for this.

I’d probably use a small duo-fiber brush and go very light with the fuchsia if I got this.

This looks like a pretty palette but it would be too dark for me. That said, it’s great to see a palette that is suitable for darker skintones πŸ™‚

I jumped in and purchased this palette before your review, based on the performance of her previous ones of similar formula.
I love it, although it does take a bit more time (I find) to work with it, but it’s worth it.
I’ve been using a slightly dampened sponge with both cream formulas–I’m terrified of moving my foundation around when using a brush. So I tap the fuchsia onto my cheeks (with a very small amount–this stuff is intense), slowly spreading the colour where I want it. The peach is nice over top, it softens the fuchsia and blurs any sharper edges. Then I go in with the powders on top (or where I want highlights) with a brush.

Glad to see you like it as well!

So far, the cheek palettes are pretty consistent! I think the cream products work well with sponges (if I’m remembering right, they were recommended as the tool to use with the Darya/Citrus palettes), too, so that’s not a bad way to go. I hateeee cleaning beauty sponges, even though I do enjoy ’em, so I tend to fingertips or a stippling brush, lol!

You reviews of ND’s Duo cheek products have been stirring up my interest. I’ll have to keep a watch on them and hopefully find one that’s less coral and a tad more subtle for me, as I’m not a big cheek makeup person.
