Palette 04

Natasha Denona Palette 04 Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette that leaned slightly more orange-based. All five shades performed well; they were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. Four of the five shades are more intense shimmer finishes, while one is more of a satin-matte.

Aura (25M)

Aura (25M) is a bright, white gold with a cooler, whiter base and warmer, brighter shimmer that shifted between cooler and warmer tones of gold. The texture was moderately dense with a touch of powderiness, which I think came from the white base, but it applied smoothly to bare skin when pressed and patted into place with a dry brush. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly on me.

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.

Cool Bronze (31M)

Cool Bronze (31M) is a light-medium copper with strong, warm golden undertones and a bright, metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, and it was the type of pigmentation that when paired with the creamier texture just went on and on. The consistency was smooth, dense without being thick or too firmly pressed into the pan, and creamy to the touch. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

There was nothing cool-toned about it, though 😉

Oxide (63M)

Oxide (63M) is a rich, deeper bronze with warm, orange undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented and applied evenly to bare skin. The consistency was creamy, dense without being too thick or too firmly pressed into the pan, so it picked up well with dry brushes but had excellent adherence to my lid. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Cool Plum (70P)

Cool Plum (70P) is a muted, medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was soft, blendable, and smooth to the touch without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. It felt like there was slight slip to the formula that gave it better blendability and made it sit more flatteringly on bare skin. It had excellent color coverage that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Moonstone (59M)

Moonstone (59M) is a light-medium, peachy gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges. The texture felt lightly creamy, dense without being too thick, and was a pleasure to work with. There were signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear.

Perfectly simple, all in one eye palette. Even though it only has five shades, those shades go together so well and effortlessly!

I love this little warm toned neutral – even though I have a ton of dupes for Cool Bronze shade. I think it is perfect for a variety of looks and if you add an olive green in there – that would be divine.
A very cohesive set of shades and all shimmers and a satin – which is the finish I love. Very tempting.

This one is too heavily orange based for me. I love Natasha Denona, but I do not understand this need to call obviously warm shades ‘cool ——-‘

I think it was a pun on cool meaning awesome rather than the temperature. I liked the name Oxide. I don’t recall seeing that except in chestry and science books.

Of course. How could I forget! The paint guy at Lowes and Shirwin Williams can read the color ingredients to me for similar colors and I can often visualize the differences. Sometimes.

This looks like a potential workhorse.
Paired with teal liner like you did with “Overdrive “ and it’s good to go!

Very pretty neutral palette, though the names are a tad confusing – Cool Bronze? Cool Plum? There is nothing cool about either shade and no plum in the Cool Plum shade lol.

What a wonderfully simple, yet extremely pretty and useful looking palette. I love that Aura is that amazing gold shifting shadow instead of the ivory shimmer I thought it was going to be. It takes the whole palette from basic to special. The matte shade is perfect for the crease.

I was so happy to see that ivory shade (something missing from the 2 mini palettes I have from ND) until I saw the swatch and saw just how yellow it is when applied. It reminded me of an old Tarina Tarantino shadow I have that looks white but applies a pale greenish gold tinged shade. I do like Moonstone but have dupes. Overall, I think this is a bit too warm for me and, like Wednesday, I don’t quite understand calling such warm colours “Cool Plum” and “Cool Bronze”.
