Tan

Natasha Denona Tan Bronze & Glow Palette ($55.00 for 0.4 oz.) is for those who love gilded gold, wet and shiny-looking bronze god/goddess kind of vibes. I think it delivers on what the brand was promising, though the degree of “bronze” is going to depend on skin tone depth. With the more bronzer-like shade (#3), fairer complexions will want to user a lighter hand, while tan to darker skin tones may find it has a my-skin-but-better kind of effect–subtle warmth added without darkening the skin or may work as a blush.

Tan #1

Tan #1 is a light-medium copper with warm, reddish undertones and a dewy, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff–just as described–that was easy to apply over bare skin as well as over base products. The consistency was lightly tacky in the pan, creamy, and emollient without being heavy. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Tan #2

Tan #2 is a bright, peachy orange with strong, warm golden shimmer and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was firmer and more densely packed in the pan. I’d recommend using a moderately dense brush (e.g. not a fan brush) to pick up product; more typical tapered highlighting brushes would do the trick and pick up product evenly. The color applied well to my skin as it blended out nicely along the edges and had a high-shine finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

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.

Tan #3

Tan #3 is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones that leaned slightly redder (rather than orange or yellow) and had a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty in the pan, but it never looked dry on my skin. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed any fading.

Ingredients

Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, C30-45 Alkyl Dimethicone, Silica, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Sorbitan Isostearate, C20-24 Alkyl Dimethicone, Mica, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Diethylhexyl Syringylidenemalonate, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, C20-24 Olefin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Zinc Stearate, Citric Acid, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

Tan #4

Tan #4 is a bright, light-medium peach-gold with strong, warm undertones and a high-shine, metallic finish. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which was easy to build up to full coverage or sheer out for lighter coverage. (This was described as a buildable formula.) The consistency was smooth, firmer, and denser without being too stiff or difficult to pick up with a brush (though I’d recommend a moderately dense brush to do so). I found that at higher coverage levels, it did emphasize my skin’s natural texture a bit, though in person it seemed to be shiny enough that it was hard to notice–but it depended on how the light hit. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Ingredients

Mica, Hdi/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Phenyl Trimethicone, Sorbitan Isostearate, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Peg-12 Dimethicone, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Xanthan Gum, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Silica, Dicalcium Phosphate, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491).

I really, really wanted this one badly! TBH, I still do. Just seeing that I can possibly dupe it, has seemed to dampen my super strong lemming for it, though. But when I look at the cheek look using all 4 at once, I’m like “dayum, I need this in my life!”

This palette has been yelling ‘over here, over here, pick me, pick me’… I held off for the swatches. Glad I did, I simply do not do well with orange based anything. I was hoping this ran more neutral temperature wise.

I have the Bloom & Glow palette and I find the Cream Glow Base (the one in the top left) seems to get a hard, dry layer over it, despite the little plastic flippy lid – the berry blush shade seems to stay creamy but the peachy one needs to be worked with a fingertip until it softens up again, so I’m hesitant to get this palette because of that… I just don’t use bronzer that much, unfortunately. I got the mini Bronze & Glow 2 weeks ago and actually haven’t used it yet (hangs head in shame)…

I would LOVE to see ND do a pink one! Or one with extra rich, dramatic shades for deeper skin tones.

This one seems less… shimmery in a way – finer? more pearly? so I wonder if that will help it maintain more slip.

I have used Tan #3 as a blush, it is just one tap and a lot of buffing. I’m not sure how well it would work on someone with the fairest skin though.

It’s beautiful, but it does have that orangey undertone (which doesn’t work well with lots of skintones) and I noticed it did emphasise your skin’s natural texture, which is a tad prohibitive.

Thanks for the great review. I’ve been thinking on this. It’s really pretty but think I could only pull it off in tan season.

Love the peachy tones.

It’s been really exploding bronzers lately hasn’t it?

Tan #4 is pretty, I like how it is buildable since I’m not one for blinding highlighters. Other than that, I feel the same overall as Wednesday about the palette.

This should arrive at my house tomorrow! I can’t wait. It should be a nice change from my coral and pink blushes, & I love ND’s formula.

I bought the blush pallette everyone raved about, the one that looks like this with 4 different blush and formula in it, and I was not thrilled. I paid 55 dollars, and should have waited for a sale. I have the tropic pallette and just ordered the matte one, and I’m starting to think this brand is just over hyped.

Welp, I was on the fence with this one but you sealed the deal for me! I think this would be perfect for travel, and I’m getting sick of all the oversized palettes on the market anyway. The Bloom palette is absolute perfection, I think this would be a great companion.

I’m so happy I skipped on this during the Rouge sale. The bronzer looked way to different across photos and now I can see it would do nothing but make me mad, lol, it’s just not dark enough.

What’s your shade? I’m a MAC NC45ish and this bronzer is great on me. It applies to the face darker than in swatches IMO. I creates a really nice red/bronze glow on me.

This palette was on my buy list the minute I saw ND’s video and seeing the bronzer had a red tone, which is the only bronzer shade I wear well. I enjoy ND face palettes, and hope she releases more of these 4-pan palettes.

Just pulled this out of my cart, thanks, Christine.
It pulls way too red-orange-y and I know I’d hate how it looked on me.
Phew. #savedbytemptaliaagain
