Each hue is infinitely beautiful and blendable and even though the shades are undeniably vibrant, they are effortless (and fun!) to wear, making Joya and Aeris apropos for daytime looks and holiday evenings alike.

Discover the next generation of eye shadow with Natasha’s new cream-powder formula, which combines the pigment-rich coverage of a cream and the long-lasting, crease-free wear of a powder
Choose from matte, metallic, sparkling, and duo-chrome shades—all effortlessly buildable and blendable—to design your own creative eye looks
Super-saturated pigments deliver intense color payoff that stays vibrant from pan to skin. No fading, creasing, or smudging—even without primer
For this eye look, I applied the Peach Gold and and Star Bronze from the Joya palette and then blended Ice Blue from the Aeris palette along my lash line. I added additional luminosity with a touch of the Chroma Crystal Top Coat in Peach.
Also new from Natasha Denona are four shades in the *Chroma Crystal Top Coatformula (also available at Sephora), which, fortunately, will become a part of the permanent line. These fascinating and glimmering hues can be worn alone (of which I am a fan) or over powder shadow to punctuate the intensity.
Texturally, the lightweight cream-meets-powder formula feels cool to the touch and offers a gossamer cloak of color that performs well as an all-over wash of color while being a perfectly powerful companion to traditional powder eyeshadow. The waterproof formula can also be worn on the lips to transform lip color and, because the shimmer is so refined, it works well on a variety of skin types and tones.
My favorite of the four shades is Peach, which I have been wearing multiple times a week…it instantly brightens up the eyes while still translating as relaxed and carefree; combined with the deeper, more opaque Bronze and pale Nude (up to the brow bone) and eyes look pristinely polished. I cannot recommend the *Natasha Denona Chroma Crystal Top Coatenough!
Add crystal-like shine to eyes, lips, and skin with this multipurpose sparkling topcoat. Packed with crushed pearls, chroma crystals, and weightless emollients for a creamy feel, Chroma Crystal Top Coat slips over skin to leave behind a shimmery, glassy sheen that won’t crease or fade throughout the day.
Why It’s Special
Pure pigments, real crushed pearls, and prismatic chroma crystals create a lustrous, glass-like sheen
The cool-touch formula glides on easily and sets in seconds, locking your look into place for all-day, crease-proof wear
Apply to bare eyelids, as an eye shadow topper, or on top of lipstick for a dazzling shimmer effect
How to Use
Tap onto skin with your finger for intense payoff. You can also use a brush for a more sheer effect.
The *Kevyn Aucoin Neo-Trio Palette(reviewed individually HERE and also available at Sephora) possesses everything necessary to create a full face; the three mini palettes are magnetized, enabling them to be separated should you wish to just keep one or two in your makeup bag.
Capri is a marvelous melange of pale gold, neutral pink and lush bronze for a custom warmth and flush, the cool lavender radiance of Ibiza is singularly pretty and the Neo-Setting Powder is finely milled to invisible oblivion, running the gamut from matte translucent to incandescent and glowy for an ethereal complexion.
The *Kevyn Aucoin Neo-Trio Paletteis a spectacular way to capitalize on both efficacy and portability and provides an excellent foray into the Neo range.
What it is: A three-in-one palette featuring everything you need to bronze, highlight and set.
What it does: This magnetic palette features the best-selling The Neo-Bronzer in Capri, The Neo-Limelight in Ibiza and The Neo-Setting Powder. Use them together or take them apart for travel. They’re infused with light-diffusing pigments to enhance and perfect the skin, creating radiant luminosity.
The color payoff of these lipsticks is insane…full coverage and a creamy finish are complemented by fantastic hydration and significant lasting power. My favorite of my three selections is Sextrology (odd name, but fabulous color) because it’s an extremely wearable peachy pink that still resides in neutral territory. The velvet matte nature of 1995 is lush and flattering and Donatella is a sublime incarnation of pure beige for a peerless 1960s look.
*Decorte Sheer Brilliance Soft Lifting Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 32 in 03 Medium: This brand new liquid wonder from Decorte is a stunning first step to a beautifully even canvas; it imparts sheer to light coverage (03 Medium is fabulous for N/NC 25-35 skin) and glowy illumination that perfectly primes skin for the make up to come. For minimal makeup days (perhaps when you might skip foundation) the demure veil coverage this creates is exceptional.
Double perfection. This gorgeous, fluid-light formula brings glowing vitality to the complexion. Weightless coverage visibly sweeps away lines, discoloration, wrinkles, pores, imperfections and other signs of fatigue to create a pure, even-toned complexion with just the right touch of luminosity. A gentle, just-there tint tops it all off. A hint of color so subtle, a gentleman could wear it and not be caught. SHAKE WELL prior to use. Paraben-free. 1.7 fl. oz. Made in Japan.
Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Cream Foundation O40 (reviewed HERE): This formula has been a significant part of my foundation rotation for the past year; long lasting and very hydrating, it offers medium coverage and a naturally luminous finish that looks like really good skin. It’s well worth the investment…O40 is a befitting match for N/NC 27-30 skin.
