The Natasha Denona Bronze Palette Collection just launched here and there was never going to be a question about if I was going to buy it. It is me. In a palette. I was very lucky to receive the collection as a pr sample but let it be known that I would have purchased it anyway. Natasha Denona has one of my favourite shadow formulas and I love everything from the colour story to the packaging. Call me a collector if you will. Now, did I need another bronze warm toned palette? No. Do we really need anymore new make up? Probably not. However, the Natasha Denona Bronze Palette is so utterly eye catching that you can’t help but want it to be yours. Is it worth your coin? Read on….
Natasha Denona Bronze Palette
Let us start with the star of the show. The collection does have a face palette and three glosses but I’ll talk about those in a bit. You can here to know about the Bronze Palette right? This is a 15 small pan eye shadow palette with five matte shades, one satin shade, and nine metallic shades in warm bronze, gold and copper colours. I love these small shadow palettes of hers as there is more than enough product to last but the price tag is much lower. You can see my review of the Love Collection HERE.
On first impression it appears that a lot of the matte shades are similar, however when blended on the eye there is enough of a difference to warrant their inclusion. I particularly like the formula of these matte shades, they feel more velvety and easier to blend than previous. The metallics are smooth, pigmented and everything you want from an eyeshadow. I particularly like her satin formula as it is almost wet looking once applied.
It is no surprise that each shade swatches like a dream and you can really tell the differences between each shade out of the pan. Now swatches are not the best way to tell how an eye shadow performs but they are equally as stunning on the eye lid. They blend beautifully, last well and give great colour pay off. I’ve been asked if it is too similar to the Sunrise Palette and no, it is completely different in tone. It is actually a great extension of the Metropolis Palette, which I own, and I feel that both together will give you the perfect selection of shadows for all occasions.

The Bronze Glow Cheek Palette…
The Bronze Glow Cheek Palette to go with this collection has the usual Natasha Denona layout with a cream highlight, cream blush and two super glow highlight powders. I have the Tan Cheek Palette and I adore it. The colours in this are slightly deeper which would put me off but when applied over facial self tanner, the palette really gave that bronze goddess glow. If pushed to pick, I much prefer the Tan Cheek Palette as it includes a bronzer but this is a nice extension of it.
Lip Oh-Phoria Bronze Collection
Denona has added three beautiful lip glosses to this collection to finish it off. This lip balm soothes and refreshes dry lips thanks to a moist and repair active, designed to promote collagen delivery into the lips to promote a lasting plumping effect. The conditioning formula leaves the lips feeling pillowy soft and smooth. Combining the skincare benefits of a lip balm and the performance of a lip gloss, the Lip Oh-Phoria is infused with rich pigments for a juicy, wet-look shine. The shades are Caramel, Chesnut and Tan Nude (my favourite).
This collection is all I have ever wanted from a versatile, wearable, warm toned palette. From the formula to the colour story, I think this is the best palette from Natasha Denona yet in terms of quality and value for money. I will post three different looks to my Instagram in the coming days so be sure to follow me HERE. Will you pick it up?
