Natasha Denona My Dream Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


My Dream

Natasha Denona My Dream 15-Pan Small Eyeshadow Palette ($69.00 for 0.67 oz.) is a new, small-sized eyeshadow palette that released in September. For a Natasha Denona palette, the quality was inconsistent and not quite up to par with past experiences–there were some excellent shades but some misses for sure.

Ingredients

Blackest Black (439CM)

Blackest Black (439CM) is a medium black with neutral undertones and a matte finish.

  • Semi-opaque, buildable color coverage
  • Thin, slightly stiffer, harder to pick up evenly
  • Needed to be more blendable
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

  • ColourPop Let’s Do It (P, $4.50) is more shimmery (95% similar).

  • Give Me Glow Black Hole Sun (PiP, $7.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar).
  • Dior Golden Day #5 (PiP, ) is lighter (95% similar).
  • Pat McGrath Xtreme Black (PiP, $25.00) is darker (95% similar).
  • Too Faced Decadent (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar).
  • Give Me Glow Leggings (P, $7.00) is darker (95% similar).
  • Urban Decay 13th Floor (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).
  • Smashbox Blackout (PiP, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).
  • ColourPop Grand Dame (LE, $4.50) is darker (95% similar).

Formula Overview

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.
