Swatches: Diamond Powder, Duo Glow

Believe it or not this is my first Natasha Denona piece! I’ve been eying the palettes for so long, but they’re so pricey and I already own so many similar shades. So I end up doing the thing where I add it to my cart, ask if I REALLY need this palette, and then empty my cart and call it a day. The Gold Palette almost had me during the holiday season. But I believe it was sold out when I went to place my order. I took it as a sign and never looked back.

When I saw the mini blush duos I figured it was the perfect time to finally try something from the brand. The Mini Diamond & Glow contains the Nude Pressed Diamond Powder and the Duo Glow which is the perfect pink with champagne highlight that shifts to green.

They both swatched nicely. The Diamond Powder is very shimmery and needs to be layered a bit to really show up in a swatch. However, it applied beautifully on my cheeks. I’ve heard a lot of people complaining that it’s a glitter bomb, but it’s called Diamond Powder. I feel like a lot of shimmer is to be expected. But I think it was nicely done. There was a bit of fallout, but it wasn’t that bad. I was worried the Duo Glow was going to be too shimmery to work as a blush. While it is quite shimmery it surprisingly worked out very well. At first I went in with a light hand to get an idea of what I was working with. Once I saw how beautifully it applied I went in with a slightly heavier hand. In the end I was very pleased with my look. You can see the Natasha Denona Mini Diamond & Glow in action below.

Overall, I think this mini duo is super cute! The packaging is gorgeous. The pans are on the smaller side so you might have difficulties getting your brush in there. I didn’t experience any issues, but I guess it would depend on your brush. If you’re not a fan of shimmer you might not like this mini duo. I don’t really care for shimmer, but I ended up loving it anyway. It’s cute and I can see it pairing well with Valentine’s Day looks.

  1. I wanted to get this but judging by how shimmery the blusher looks, I will give it a pass.

  2. The highlighter looks a lot more shimmery than the full size glow powder so I think I’ll skip this xx

  3. So pretty! It looks super shimmery in your swatch but not too much on the cheeks in your photo. I used to hate shimmery blushes but I find that if I buff it into the skin, the shimmer becomes like a sheen which looks more wearable.
