Natasha Denona Deep Slate Gray (32P) Eyeshadow
Natasha Denona Deep Slate Gray (32P) Eyeshadow

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.08 oz.) comes in 66 shades with four distinct finishes (Matte, Duo-Chrome, Metallic, and Sparkling). According to the brand, the eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “full, rich and intense color that won’t fade out, be “long-lasting,” and smooth. The majority of the shimmery shades were very pigmented with a soft consistency that was something just right and other times a little prone to crumbling/loosening in the pan, while the mattes were smooth but quite powdery, which resulted it color that didn’t adhere to bare skin as readily. The texture of most shades is soft, blendable, and most of the shimmery shades I’ve tested applied well to bare skin. The wear was fairly consistent, but there was some variance from shade to shade (which didn’t seem related to finish). The wear has ranged from five to eight hours, depending on the shade. Primer helps with longevity, adding two to three hours to the shade’s no-primer wear time, but they seem like shorter-wearing eyeshadows compared to most powder formulas I’ve tried.

Check out my first review for more depth about the formula as well as a pricing breakdown for singles compared to palettes.

Piggy (80M) is a bright, light pinky-peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It is very shimmery and can emphasize the texture of the lid slightly, if I’m not careful. The consistency is a little loose in the pan as it comes away from the surface, but it doesn’t have much fall out during application. It blended out well and had good pigmentation. This shade wore for seven and a half hours before creasing. Kat Von D Glitz (DC, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty White Suede #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar).

Satin Skin (75P) is a medium, bronzy brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had great color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan.

Rosewood (51M) is a medium-dark, reddish bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was nicely pigmented with opaque color coverage and a soft, blendable consistency that applied well and was easy to use. This shade started to crease after seven hours on me. Colour Pop West Star (P, $4.50) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Cool Plum (70P) is a medium-dark red-toned brown with a satin sheen. I’m not sure how this is a cool plum, because it doesn’t even look cool-toned in the pan. It’s a brown, and it’s pretty warm-toned, so the name is confusing. It had good color payoff with a soft but powdery consistency. The powder applied better than I thought it would, given the texture, though it takes some extra work to really blend it out as it does stick to some areas better than others. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. Colour Pop Bandit (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Exposed (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Deep Slate Gray (32P) is a dark taupe with subtle, warmer undertones but a cooler overtone. If you blend it out a lot, especially if you diffuse the edges, the warmer tone comes through more prominently. The texture was lightly powdery, and it has some fall out during application (more so than most other shades). It started to crease after seven hours of wear. MAC In My Genes (PiP, ) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Eclipse Eagle (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Very pretty, but I have enough neutrals for now. I’m trying to put a 5 pan together with some more unique shades, since that’s quite a number of them in her line.

I really love the way these silvery and bronzey shades go together in your eye look! An unexpected prettiness.
The shade Piggy is gorgeous, and I’m not usually one to go crazy for a shade like that. But I do have 2 pans of UD Sin. Also a lookalike in my Lorac Unzipped Palette.

I really think this eye look is gorgeous and glowy. I’ve been saying that I don’t think these could possibly be worth the cost by the description. But, I’m wondering if other people are loving these now that I love this look!
I’m sure I can dupe this! Stay strong Nicole! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lovely neutral colours – BUT I have 4 out of 5 of them in my UD stash from Nakeds 1 & 2, Vice 2 and Mariposa palettes. I think most of us have these colours – Tarte, Two Faced etc. have them as well.
A really pretty eye look Christine.

I don’t know why, but it really bothers me when companies choose names for eyeshadows that are totally off. A few weeks ago I saw someone swatch Cool Plum and I was like WTF! Does Natasha even know what cool means? I’ve noticed that many of ND shadows have names that are nothing like the eyeshadow color. Although, Piggy has the perfect name. ๐Ÿ™‚
It’s really sad that most of ND’s shadows don’t wear longer, because even though these colors are very dupable, this is one of the prettiest natural looks I’ve seen on you, Christine. The texture just looks smoother on your eye than other neutral shimmery shadows I’ve seen on you. They also look perfectly blended and the glow is better than other shimmery shadows you’ve worn in the past.

I’m sorry you, Christine, I forgot to ask something. When I saw your reviews and ratings you you gave these shadows, I was disapointed. But I recently saw someone mention that these shadows are not regular metallic or shimmer eyeshadows but more like pressed pigments. I know loose pigments give a different look than regular foiled shadows but they’re very messy and inconvenient. Anyway the person reviewing them said that although the ND shadows had fall out and were a bit messy, they were much better than using loose pigments while still giving that intense finish.
So my question is this: Do you think these shadows give more of the look that loose pigments do compared to other foiled shadows like the MUFE metallics, diamonds and MUG foiled shadows? Because if that’s the case then I could work around some fallout and messiness. Thanks so much!

They just seem like frosted/metallic eyeshadows to me – I don’t really notice a difference between loose and pressed other than loose typically applies with more pigmentation with less product, but that’s just me. I find these to be most like Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows of those three. Make Up For Ever has a very different texture. I actually don’t get a lot of fall out with most shades, though I have seen that criticism made in some reviews for sure.

Very nice indeed! I do have dupes for two of those so that’s not bad. Will be good to see the overall verdicts at the end. How many do you have left to review now?

I have such a problem with this brand. The monos are far too expensive to just buy a bunch of them individually, the 5 pan palettes don’t have the ones I want in them and the huge $239 palettes have the ones I want but a million other ones i DONT want in them. Theres no reasonable way for me to get the 10-ish shades I’m actually interested in. So I have to skip over the entire brand.
