Review: After her release of the Bronze Palette in June, Natasha Denona came back with another winner early September with the Glam Palette. Let's get to the basics - similar to the Bronze Palette, this is one of her smaller sized (not the mini or 5 pan) palettes. It comes in a silver gray box with a high shine finish. The palette is housed in a sturdy plastic container with a similar finish as its box packaging. It also comes with a large mirror. The pans are magnetic and removable so if you own other Natasha Denona Palettes of this size, you can customize your own shades into one palette.
When I first saw the name of the palette without seeing what it actually looked like, I guessed that it would be an extension of her 5 pan Glam Palette and sure enough, it was. This is a cool toned palette; but the best part is that they are neutral tones so you can use it for an every day look or as the name suggests, glam look for those night outs. There are a variety of finishes in this palette such as mattes, satin and metallic. Similar to most of her shadows, they are soft, cream and easy to blend. I love that they blend really well over other shadows without making it look muddy. They are long-lasting and are beautiful on the eyelids. There is a little bit of fall out on the metallics, but most ND shadows have that. One thing that stands out with this palette among her other ones is that the shade names are actually the parts of the eye where you would put the shadow on instead of an actual name. For instance, there is a shade called "Outer Corner", "Inner Corner", "Brow Bone" and so forth. Over all, if you are a neutral tone lover - you will love this palette. I highly recommend this for every day use (great to combine with the Biba's Neutral but Warm toned palette) and I am glad that it was one of her smaller palettes. For it's $65 price point, I it is definitely a must.
