Glam

Natasha Denona Glam Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new, miniature palette featuring three new shades and two existing shades (Golden Flesh and Seed). It’s a short ‘n’ sweet, cohesive palette of more muted, slightly yellower-toned neutrals than really warm, red/orange-toned neutrals, though I wouldn’t classify it as cool-toned. Seed is the closest to cool-toned, but Golden Flesh and Faye are hard to read as anything but warm-toned to my eye. The eyeshadows performed well with excellent pigmentation, blendability, and longevity.

Golden Flesh (68M)

Golden Flesh (68M) is a medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. I felt like it was a bit deeper and richer in color than the last version I tested of it (in another five-pan palette). It lasted well for nine hours before fading faintly.

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.

Harlow (277CP)

Harlow (277CP) is a very light, yellowed taupe-brown with muted, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product that diffused easily along the edges. The texture was smooth, velvety, and dense without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Anjo (278M)

Anjo (278M) is a muted, medium taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense without being too firmly pressed into the pan nor was it thick on the skin. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out with ease. This shade stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Seed (224CM)

Seed (224CM) is a deep taupe-brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed into the pan, so it wasn’t prone to fallout but wasn’t difficult to work with. It had rich pigmentation that lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Faye (279M)

Faye (279M) is a brighter, light-medium peach with strong, warm shimmer and slightly pink-peach tones in its base pigment paired with a metallic finish. The consistency was soft, slightly more loosely-pressed compared to other metallic shades in the pan, but it adhered evenly and sat smoothly on my skin in practice. It had nearly opaque color coverage that wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me.

Should have this by the end of the day. I saw a comparison of this palette to various ND 5 pans and shades in Biba and some are similar, but not dupes. The weirdest thing is how ‘greenish’ this looks in other reviews..almost like a less green version of the Gold palette. Seed is definitely a brown I would go for, a departure from PMG browns for certain, and I like Anjo. I may keep this despite letdown and expectation this would run cooler. I’m loving all my ND e/s’s and feel the ND and PMG formulas are the two I reach for most.

I’m actually really happy with this palette but mystified as to why the online photos weren’t representative at all of what these shadows look like. Seed is, indeed, a really nice brown and not so intensely pigmented that it’s tricky to use.

….and it leaves the window open for a palette that really is as cool as we thought this one was….maybe ND will come out with one that actually looks like those promo photos and we can have the fun of buying it too. I’m glad you like yours too, Wednesday!

Again, thanks for the save. I do believe Sephora modified and expanded the description. Distinctly recall ‘sparkly’ ‘Cool’ and ‘soft glam.’ Not at all. Many of the consumer reviews suggest disappointment that the palette is not cool. It’s as if ND feels that only the red-orange-yellow slice of the color pie is warm. It is lovely, cohesive, and simple, though. As usual, you have done a careful analysis. Thanks.

I wrote a review that was considerably more favourable than lots of the others at Sephora, commenting that while it’s not “as advertised”, and is more neutral than cool, I really like it. Sephora has seen fit not to post my review (maybe they’re waiting for “next year”).

Hmm, I do like it, but I’ve got a feeling that I could get a very similar vibe using my highly neglected UD Naked 1. Yet, at least this one is a perfect little travel mini, has a nice, deep taupey brown for definition and a gorgeous liquid metal golden peach!

To me the shades Mini Glam (online at least) seem more like those in (my own highly neglected) Naked 2 palette. With the exception of a few of Naked 2‘s shades, I really didn’t like how many of them looked on me, despite trying to make them work (I often felt they made me look sallow or sickly.
I will have to see Mini Glam in person before making any decisions about it.

The excitement generated by the company’s promo photos was dampened down a whole lot when we Temptalia-ers (Temptalia-istas?) got to see the true colours of this mini. I bought it yesterday, knowing it wasn’t what I’d expected initially. I got to see it for myself in-store and despite the colours not being “as advertised”, I really like it a lot. It’s not as cool as I was hoping but it’s not warm either – it’s a nice, balanced neutral and I pretty much agree with everything you said in your review, Christine. It just would have been nice (and professional) if the company’s promo pics were more honest.

Based on general experience, I think most brands use the term “cool-toned” and it ends up being less warm-toned – more yellow/olive/muted than typically red/orange/peach, IMO. I expected this to run more neutral-to-warm based on the inclusion of Golden Flesh alone (existing shade it is definitely warm-toned!).

I think yellow muted olive is a perfect description. I received mine today and I like it 👍. I thought it might clash with my neutral leaning cool skin.. I have a slight green undertone and I did a really quick eye look and it does not make me read sallow… could be that the shades are quite muted and not as ‘autumn’ like as they could be.

Thanks for your timely review! I’ve got two dupes and yellow-toned shades don’t look good on me, so this is a pass for me.

Rachel, both the regular compact and pro pan format of Sumptuous Olive are still available in Canada and I’m guessing in the US also. I’m not sure where Ana Maria is but I just checked and S.O. is till available here, thankfully. It looks like they’ve brought back Typographic, though only in the full compact format. I’m fearing, though, that they might have changed the formula, and not for the better, as they did with Blanc Type.

Really? Oh, my – as I say, both formats are showing on the Canadian site and is also tagged as a “best seller”. I’m good for the product (I have almost a full pan) and I’ve also got Inglot 419, which, at least in my experience, is a total dupe. I don’t know what the US site is like but, I tell ya, the Canadian one is dreadful. It was never very good but they redid it a few years ago and it’s even worse and makes me dizzy because the right side of the screen bops up and down! Hard to explain unless the US one is the same and you’ve seen the images scrolling/bopping around too.

It’s not available on the website anymore, as an eyeshadow or refill. I do hope they’ll re-release them… the brow set (Prolongwear) is also continuously coming in and out of stock and a MAC make-up artist vouched they don’t plan on discontinuing it, it’s just an artifact from the sales… but you never know with MAC.
I’m still mourning some discontinued eyeshaow shades, like In The Shadows. 😆

After seeing your review, it’s much less taupe and more yellow-based than I expected. It might be different enough from my other neutral palettes to be worth it.

Hi Christine & Friends!
Would you guys recommend this or the Camel palette for a truly nude to neutral (pref leaning cool) ND palette? Or… are they mutually exclusive enough to warrant having both?
I have so many palettes and way more e/d than I’ll ever use in a lifetime, but I love these not super warm nudes I’ve been seeing.
I have long been interested in getting a good solid ND palette for daily use and can’t seem to decide between the two. Or if I can justify both.
Thanks for any insight!

I don’t know how many times I have been back and forth on this palette. Now, after looking at the dupes, I see I have all but Harlow and I decluttered that dupe (Nars Portabello) so I must not have been in love with it. This is one I’m just going to have to see in person. Maybe by the time I get to a Sephora there will be great cool toned releases from both Natasha Denona AND Pat McGrath, wouldn’t that be something!!

It arrived NYE, so I tried it out last night, because I was running late and this is an easy look to pull together. It pulls way too yellow or green, can’t even stand on my weary legs to look long enough. Whatever it is, it’s too warm-toned for me. I’ve never returned used makeup to Sephora, but this mini palette is so unflattering on me.
