Natasha Denona My Dream Cheek Trio Review & Swatches


My Dream

Natasha Denona My Dream Cheek Trio ($48.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a new cheek palette that includes a blush and two highlighters, and the brand touts it as universal, but the blush barely showed up on my skin tone, so those with deeper skin tones may want to try it in person or give it a miss. I wish the brand launched two or three versions, though it didn’t end up performing that well relative to the marketing, so maybe not…

Ingredients

My Dream (Cream Blush)

My Dream (Cream Blush) is a dusty, peachy coral with a semi-matte finish. I found the formula to be incredibly stiff and difficult to pick up, even with a fingertip. The only way it was–somewhat–usable was using a dampened sponge but hard to really build up effectively on my skin without lifting up foundation, so it just felt like a very limited-use product. It lasted for six hours from what I could tell, but it barely showed up on my skin tone, which did make it harder to judge longevity.

My Dream (Dream Glow Powder)

My Dream (Dream Glow Powder) is a light gold with warmer, more peach-leaning undertones paired with a lightly sparkling, metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque, buildable coverage that applied well to bare skin and blended out with ease, and it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

My Dream (Glow Cream)

My Dream (Glow Cream) is a light, peachy gold with more of a translucent aspect to it, which resulted in sheer, lightly dewy coverage. It was thin, emollient, and felt like a traditional cream product, so it had a glossier finish on skin. It applied evenly on bare skin as well as over foundation, though it only lasted six hours on me. I wish the brand was clearer on the function of the product, because they just talk about how it the design “elevates” the coverage and the promo swatches show it as quite opaque.
