Natasha Denona Retro Glam Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches



Retro Glam

Natasha Denona Retro Glam 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette ($69.00 for 0.67 oz.) is a new, seemingly permanent addition to the midi palette range. It takes inspiration from the larger Glam palette and the Retro mini palette that the brand has released in the past.

Individually, the quality of the eyeshadows was typically consistent with what I’d expect from Natasha Denona’s formulas, but I did not feel like the palette came together as nicely as I expected. There was more overlap between key shades and a lack of depth to ensure contrast between one shade and the next when it came to the more matte finishes.

I was personally disappointed since the color story itself was singing to my sage-green-loving heart, but I didn’t love it in practice.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.08 oz. – $362.50 Per Ounce

The majority of the brand’s eyeshadows are quite pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. The eyeshadows have improved over time, particularly with respect to longevity (without a primer). The original formula often creased on me within seven to eight hours, whereas the more current formula wears eight to nine hours with fading (instead of full-on creasing). The more matte finishes tend to be a bit more velvety, substantial, and less dry/powdery compared to prior iterations.

The metallic finish is often the creamiest, slightly denser in feel, but has excellent pigmentation, adhesion, and blendability. The sparkling shades can have some fallout, depending on how they’re applied and how sparkly they are, so they sometimes work better with fingertips or a dampened brush; they can also run sheerer compared to other finishes.

Cream-Powders are the more unique formulation and tend to have firmer, almost stiff, consistencies and more semi-opaque, watercolor-esque coverage. They are longer-wearing, but they can take a few uses to learn how to use. This formula has also improved compared to when it first debuted–it is a bit more yielding now.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.08 oz. – $362.50 Per Ounce

The majority of the brand’s eyeshadows are quite pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. The eyeshadows have improved over time, particularly with respect to longevity (without a primer). The original formula often creased on me within seven to eight hours, whereas the more current formula wears eight to nine hours with fading (instead of full-on creasing). The more matte finishes tend to be a bit more velvety, substantial, and less dry/powdery compared to prior iterations.

The metallic finish is often the creamiest, slightly denser in feel, but has excellent pigmentation, adhesion, and blendability. The sparkling shades can have some fallout, depending on how they’re applied and how sparkly they are, so they sometimes work better with fingertips or a dampened brush; they can also run sheerer compared to other finishes.

Cream-Powders are the more unique formulation and tend to have firmer, almost stiff, consistencies and more semi-opaque, watercolor-esque coverage. They are longer-wearing, but they can take a few uses to learn how to use. This formula has also improved compared to when it first debuted–it is a bit more yielding now.
