Happy holidays! Christmas is almost here and I am definitely feeling the holiday rush. I have been extremely busy lately and had to catch up not only on my personal schedules but also with last-minute gifting. This has got to be one of my busiest Christmases ever. I really can’t wait to relax, chill, and cuddle with my kitties.
I don’t know why, but with all the holiday rush and the chilly temperature, I found myself dreaming of Summer and Spring, lol. I was actually looking for some beauty items as gifts to my dear friends, and I saw a face palette that looked really pretty and very Summer/Spring-like but one that I decided not to have some time ago. However, I regretted not making that purchase soon because I realize that it’s a palette that is so totally worth it. Oh my, nothing haunts us like the things we didn’t buy, lol.
The Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette (0.48 oz: 55 USD) is a beautiful face blush palette that I should have grabbed since the day of its release. Not sure why I was hesitant about this palette before, it must be because of its dark burgundy blush shade that made me feel apprehensive about it. I also remember that I was eyeing the Tan Bronze & Glow Palette more than this palette because I thought that that would be a much better fit for my face and complexion. Well, whatever my reasons were, I’m glad that I finally pulled the trigger on this cruelty-free, paraben-free, and gluten-free palette.
This blush palette contains four shades with two different textures: two creams and two powders. The creams are protected separately by another clear plastic covering. One of the cream blushes looks dark red or very burgundy. It’s called “Cream Blush” and at first, you may find it to be not an ideal blush shade because it definitely looks “too red”. The way to apply it is to dab a little of it on the cheeks since it’s extremely pigmented. It definitely gives a nice doll-like flushed cheeks. One that looks cute not only for Spring and Summer but also for this Winter to combat the paleness. The other cream blush is a slightly luminous peachy shade that looks very wearable especially if you’re into that natural peachy cheeks look.
The two powdery shades look more like a hybrid blush and highlighter. The Glow Extreme is the most blinding one out of all the four shades, and it definitely makes you look glowy and sparkly in a very glamorous way. It feels very fine and smooth to the touch and there’s no fallout. It’s a glowy champagne shade that complements all the other three shades in the palette. It is perfect as both highlighter and blush. Although on my skin, I like to use it as a highlighter. The Duo Glow shade, on the other hand, is a glowy coral champagne that is definitely perfect as a highlighter/blush mixed. This is the shade I like to use to highlight and add a pop of color on my cheeks when I’m in a hurry.
Nothing excites the holidays than giving a nice beauty gift to a beauty lover, and with this chilly season, the Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow Palette is definitely one that will make all of us beauty enthusiasts look forward to several festivities. I highly recommend this palette for its hydrating creamy formulas that are long-lasting, extremely pigmented, and will give you that natural healthy gorgeous glow.
Are you a fan of this palette too?
Happy holidays everyone! Wishing you a safe, healthy, happy, and very Merry Christmas.
