Natasha Denona Rose Mini Cream Blush & Highlighter Duo Review & Swatches

Natasha Denona Rose Mini Cream Blush & Highlighter Duo

Rose

Natasha Denona Rose Mini Cream Blush & Highlighter Duo ($19.00 for 0.141 oz.) is a new, miniature-sized cream and highlighter duo. The highlighter is a shade found in the original Super Glow range, which is a long-time favorite formula of mine (for those who like shiny highlighters!). The cream blush was underwhelming; it had random gold sparkle, which just seemed misplaced, while the actual texture was drier and a little thick/firm, so it wasn’t the most spreadable formula.

Natasha Denona Rose Cream Blush

Rose

Rose is a medium pink with subtle warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle strewn over a more matte finish. The texture was dense, overly firm, and tookmore effort to pick up with a fingertip or a brush; a fingertip was more consistent as getting an even application of coverage and blending it out as the warmth helped to make the product more malleable. It applied best on top of something that was more emollient, e.g. not matte foundation. It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Natasha Denona Light-Medium (02) Super Glow Highlighter

Light-Medium (02)

Light-Medium (02) is a light-medium gold with warmer undertones and a high-shine, luminous finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a smooth, moderately firm texture that picked up readily with a tapered highlighting brush. The powder applied evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.35 oz. - $108.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "super-soft powder" that "mimics skin's natural texture for a slick, seamless finish that won't settle in fine lines" while creating a "multidimensional glow" and "glass-like sheen." The powder has a denser consistency with slight slip and creaminess, but it definitely feels like a powder.

The three shades available had semi-opaque to opaque coverage in a single layer with a strong, metallic sheen and a lot of shine--more reflective and shiny than shimmer in texture, but it was a mega-watt kind of glow. It worked well with standard, tapered highlighting brushes without having to use a light or heavy hand with it. The highlighters applied evenly, blended out easily, and lasted for eight to nine hours on me.
