Natasha Denona Diamond and Blush palette is the newly released blush and highlighting palette from Natasha Denona. It has six shades of blushes and highlights with varying textures. This product costs USD $89 or AUD $129. The net weight of the Natasha Denona Diamond and Blush palette is 6 x 7g or 6 x 0.25oz. It is made in Italy and what is excellent about his palette is that it does not contain paraben and it is not tested on animals.
Natasha Denona Diamond and Blush palette comes in two different shades Darya (number 1) and Citrus (number two). Darya consists of a varying shades of pink and have cool undertone while Citrus on the other hand is saturated with warm undertone golden peach hues. I will be reviewing Citrus as this shade is the one that I have.
This palette is housed in a chic baby pink palette with a large mirror inside. The packaging is quite sturdy, even though it is made from plastic, but it is rather large. I am not sure if I will be carrying this palette for short trips but I will definitely consider it for a longer trip where I would want to have more blush and highlight choices.
Six Different Categories of the Natasha Denona Diamond and Blush Palette
- Glow Cream. This glow cream is absolutely creamy in texture and it glides beautifully across the skin. It catches the light well as it is infused with iridescent particles. I applied this glow cream on my cheeks using a blending sponge such as beauty blender. It blended well upon application and melted onto the skin instantly creating a natural glow. You can layer it up for a more intense look.
- Cream Blush. This creamy blush is intense and richly pigmented. Light handed application is recommended. I prefered to use my fingers to apply this cream on to my cheeks in a patting motion. It was easily blended and it gave a natural flush when used sparingly.
- Duo-Chrome Highlighter. Very intense and rich colour pay-offs. Absolutely gorgeous! Normally I would prefer a natural makeup look but there is nothing “natural” with this highlighter. Use sparingly for an amped up natural look or if you want glow gloriously to be seen from the outer space, then use it to your heart’s content!
- Diamond Powder. This powder was a bit disappointing to me. I had to go back and dip my brush a few times into the pan to get the sparkle that I wanted. And I don’t ask much since I prefer a natural look! This powder is more of a blush topper than anything else.
- Powder Blush. This is quite a versatile blush. I can use it using a face brush for a natural flush of colour or a powder puff or sponge for a more intense look. Beautiful warm golden peach shade.
- Extreme Glow. This powder gives a toned-down wet metallic look on my cheeks. Gorgeous! Another product that I recommend to use a light-handed application. You could apply it sparingly and keep layering it up until you achieve your desired intensity. For me, it took one swipe using a dry beauty blender and one application with a patting motion. Intense glow!

In general, this product has met my expectation. If there was anything that can be improved, it was the Diamond powder. Besides that, the pigmentation, colour pay-off and texture from this palette was outstanding. When applied using the cream products as a base and the powders on top, these combination of products stayed on my cheeks from day-to-night without budging! I was impressed!
If you have a niche on high-end makeup items, then this palette is for you. For me personally, the Natasha Denona Diamond and Blush Palette is a little overpriced and it maybe better suited for someone who has more experience in makeup application as it needed different tools and technique to draw out its best potential. In my opinion, this palette is not for someone who just began in experimenting makeup.
