Love

Natasha Denona Love Cheek Duo PaletteNatasha Denona Love Cheek Duo Palette ($42.00 for 0.49 oz.) is new for spring, and it wasn’t noted as limited edition (whereas the mini eyeshadow palette was!). The duo includes a brighter, pink cream blush, which was originally in the Darya palette (the color and performance was consistent with that appearance) and a new, gold-shimmered pink highlighter/highlighting blush (depending on one’s skin tone).

Pink and Golden Champagne

Love is a light-medium, almost bluish-pink base with very strong, peach-to-gold shifting shimmer that gave it a luminous finish. The powder was smooth to the touch, firm and dense but not stiff to work with, which I find is typical for the gel-powder hybrid type of formula that this is part of.

There was no powderiness when I worked with it, which made it easier to pick up product without feeling like one might over-apply, though those new to this type of formula may find they need a denser brush or a heavier hand if they tend to be very light-handed! It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that applied evenly and blended out well. The finish was glowing and had noticeable shimmer, but it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural skin texture. It lasted nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

Pink

Pink is a bright, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a “natural matte” finish. It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was lightweight, blendable, and not too tacky. It dried down to a more semi-matte finish after being applied to my skin.

Per the brand, it can be applied with dampened sponge for more buildable coverage, which was accurate, though it worked well with stippling brushes or fingertips, too. It applied evenly over bare skin as well as over foundation as it wasn’t prone to lifting up base products. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit on me.

Gee, that’s so pretty. I’m in trouble. Good thing it’s permanent, as I’m just window shopping for now.

Dumb question: when applying cream blush from a pan with a dampened sponge, would you just like streak the blush onto the cheek with a finger and then blend it out with the sponge? Or actually dip the sponge into the pan, if it’s not too wet? I’d guess the former but I’ve never had a cream blush in that format.

You can really do either! I’d probably apply a bit on with a stippling brush or fingertip, then use a dampened sponge to blend if I was going to use a sponge.

This is the item in which I’m most interested out of this collection—I love the colors and the packaging! I love that cool pink base in the highlighter, and I’d want to use it as a blush-topper, but from the video reviews I’ve seen on YouTube, the gold shift is so strong that it makes me hesitant. I ended up purchasing the Darya palette instead (on sale on Sephora for pretty much the same price as this duo!), but I’m glad to hear that this isn’t limited edition. Perhaps I’ll pick it up another time 🙂

I definitely have this on my list to buy when I finish my current blush, I truly love ND face products I only have Hourglass as a contender in my stash.

This is tempting. I’m not sure the shift in the highlighter will work for me, but I’m not sure it won’t. The gold says it will, the almost greige nature of it tells me it may make me look dead. It is such a pretty duo though!

Oh, that heart shaped glitter/sequins in the packaging – my 3.5 yo daughter would love that 😀 Both blushes look lovely and well pigmented, I wonder if they would work well as eyeshadows too…

I grabbed it the moment it appeared on her website! I love it. So much better than her Valentine offering last year! I hope that next Valentine’s Day she will introduce a mini blush palette with a coral toned blush as is in her Citrus Diamond and Glow palette.

Really pretty and both are wearable colours for me, which is not always the case in a duo or palette. But I have more cheek products that I can realistically (or even unrealistically) use!

Gosh this is so pretty. I already have the Darya palette and use the cream blush all the time; but I really love this highlighter. I’m torn because I really want the new Pat McGrath highlighter and they seem similar. I’ll probably end up getting both, knowing me.

Wow!!! Really looks lovely on you!!!!! Seriously!!! What caused it to miss the “+”? I am so close to wanting to purchase it, but as I really don’t need it, I’ll wait.

oof I so wish that these were separate because I want that highlighter more than anything but I reeeeally don’t think the blush color would work for me, especially as a cream formula. Not sure if I am going to cave or look for a dupe of the highlighter!

I’ve about given up on brands launching pale, cool toned highlighters. Every time I turn around, there’s a new gold or gold shifting highlighter that brands claim is universal. Come on, vampires want to wear highlighter too!!
