Face palettes are a huge weakness of mine and with me trying to be more conscious of what I spend my money on, I have made a few more highend purchases recently. One of those included the Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette, and that’s what I’m going to review today.
The packaging is a pretty coral compact. It doesn’t look particularly luxurious but it doesn’t look cheap either. I think all Natasha Denona face palettes like this come in quite small compacts so it would be great for travel and also includes a mirror. Inside, you get four shades and I really love that they have the names/product type on the packaging and also it has a plastic tab to separate the creams from the powders and stop them getting too messy which I think such a cool idea.
The Natasha Denona Bloom Bush & Glow palette retails for £51 in the UK for 13.7g of product. I got mine with 20% off but it’s still crazy expensive for a fairly small amount of product. I feel like if you just want to try her face products the Natasha Denona Mini Bronze & Glow might be better.
You get two cream shades and two powder shades in this face palette.
- Glow Cream Base is a sheer pinky champagne shimmer, a subtle glow on its own
- Cream Blush is a very vibrant cherry blush- super pigmented but it’s a cream so blends easily
- Glow Extreme is a very shimmery peachy champagne, lots of glitter particles and very glowy
- Duo Glow is a golden peach shimmer blushy highlight shade, similar to Nars Orgasm
I find that I can layer all four shades together but it is very shimmery and glowy. If you have fair or light skin, these shades do look a bit intimidating but you can make it work with a very light hand. I like to dab the glow cream base on the high points of my face with my fingers, then apply the cream blush with a duofibre brush before using a highlighter brush or dense blush brush to apply the powder shades.
Because you can layer powder over a cream base so easily with this face palette, I find that I can make the glow last all day. If I just use the cream products alone, they don’t survive more than a few hours on me, which is typical of all cream products really. I do like the shimmery highlights in this palette because they still look nice after fading rather than just leaving a glitter explosion on my face.
Who should buy this?
If you get use out of face palettes, love to glow and the Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette is in your budget, then I do think it’s worth picking up. If you don’t like glitter or don’t reach for palettes like this, I don’t think this one is going to change your mind. At £51, it’s definitely an investment product for me but I do enjoy having it in my collection and can’t wait to use it for travelling.
