Natasha Denona Triochrome Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


Triochrome

Natasha Denona Triochrome 15-Pan Eyeshadow PaletteNatasha Denona Triochrome 15-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($129.00 for 1.2 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that’s centered around three, Multichrome eyeshadows (the third column!). The palette contains 12 matte eyeshadows and three Multichrome eyeshadows, which had varying degrees of sheen–from low-level pearl to soft metallic.

The matte eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque, buildable pigmentation with lightly powdery, though blendable, consistencies; they were less substantial and a bit thinner compared to the brand’s matte formula, generally. Scarab had the strongest sheen and strongest multichromatic shift of the three Multichromes; Kinetic was the least impressive as far as shift went (I could barely see it on my arm, let alone on my lid!) and seemed more prone to fading in a way I haven’t seen from a Natasha Denona eyeshadow in years. Color Flip was somewhere in-between with a noticeable shift but the subtler sheen seemed to reduce the shift to being similarly subtle applied.

Scrap (339CM)

Scrap (339CM) is a faded, darker olive green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation paired with a soft, blendable texture, though it was a bit thinner and lightly powdery compared to most of the brand’s more recent matte releases. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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.

Scarab (341MC)

Scarab (341MC) is a rich, brighter chartreuse green that shifted to warmer, more golden green and deeper, cooler emerald green. It had a subtle, metallic sheen that was the most intense in finish and shift from the three multichrome shades in the palette. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly creamy texture that was moderately dense but not thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It had rich color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out well. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Ion (342CM)

Ion (342CM) is a bright chartreuse with strong, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable with light powderiness in the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. It had opaque color coverage that lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Vert (343CM)

Vert (343CM) is a light-medium, greenish-mustard with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was a smidgen dusty in the pan but had great adhesion and blendability without losing its opacity. The color showed signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear.

Manganese (345CM)

Manganese (345CM) is a muted, medium purple with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff with a soft, slightly thinner and lightly powdery consistency. It applied evenly, but there was some dryness present, so it did not sit as well as other shades in the palette. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Kinetic (346MC)

Kinetic (346MC) is a muted, medium purple with a more low-sheen, pearl-like finish most of the time; it shifted subtly to warmer, pinky-purple and olive green. I just wasn’t able to see much of a multichrome effect on the lid; there was a subtle effect swatched on my arm with enough contortion.

It had a weak multichrome finish, and it seemed to get duller in finish/intensity after six hours of wear, which was unusual for a Natasha Denona metallic shade (though nowhere near as metallic as the brand’s typical shimmer shades). It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that was thin and blendable.

Redox (347CM)

Redox (347CM) is a muted, grayish-lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It applied slightly darker than it appeared in the pan. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable but had some powderiness present that resulted in the color having light fallout. It had mostly opaque color coverage that could be built up with a second layer. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Vertex (349CM)

Vertex (349CM) is a light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single pass, which was a surprise for a shade as light with a matte finish. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and lightly powdery but did not seem prone to sheering out too readily. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Plutonium (350CM)

Plutonium (350CM) is a bright, lighter orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin and blended out with ease. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery but didn’t seem prone to fallout or sheering out too readily. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

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.

Color Flip (351MC)

Color Flip (351MC) has a stronger, warmer plum hue that shifted to warmer, olive green to deeper, cooler emerald green. It had a soft, more pearl-like sheen–not nearly as metallic as most of the brand’s shimmers (more for reference than a pro or con!).

The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable with a moderately-dense feel, but it wasn’t overly thick. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation in a single layer that wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Garmon (352CM)

Garmon (352CM) is a muted, medium plummy-brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that could be built up to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, silky, and blendable, but it was somewhat powdery and more prone to fallout/sheering out. It lasted decently for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, though it was blendable, but definitely thinner and not as velvety as other mattes from the brand. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.
