Natasha Denona Bloom Palette review and swatches
Hey guys, summer is almost here, and so here’s a palette so perfect for summer! The Natasha Denona Bloom Palette. This palette has a pretty dark hue, if you look at the promo pics, but I think you can use it to make subtle looks as well.
I will quote the website description:

OK here are the swatches. The first photo is all 4 pans swatches in the shade. You can see that the cream cherry red is quite intense.
And here’s how it looks in sunlight. The other three shades barely show up on my arm, but I assure you they glow and sparkle like crazy. Perfect to layer over the red cream.
Here are closer swatches. You can see that the Glow Cream Base in shade Natural Peach (top) is quite subtle. I’d love to use this on the highs of my face.
The two powder pans are great too. The Glow Extreme (top) sparkles like crazy do you will only need just a tiny bit. The Duo Glow is coral tinted, which I think can even work as a powder blush.
Here’s how the brand tells you to use it:
1. Apply the CREAM BLUSH on the apples of the cheeks with a blush brush.
2. Apply the GLOW CREAM BASE on the upper cheekbones with your ﬁnger or a shimmer brush
3. Apply the Glow Extreme Powder on top for an extreme shine with a shimmer brush or ﬁnger.
4. Apply the Duo Glow Powder on top for a multicolored shine with shimmer brush or ﬁnger.
To be honest I wouldn’t use all 4 pans to once, prolly just 2 or 3. I prefer a more natural look. I would also use the Duo Glow as a highlighting blush as well. I think it’s quite similar to Nars Orgasm Blush.
Overall, it’s a really nice a versatile palette. You can go for an intense blush, or go natural with the Duo Glow. Also having both creams and powder formulas gives you more options of application as well.
