The Dupe the Vibe series is where I recreate the vibe or feel of a palette with shadows I already own. I want others to see that you don’t need to purchase every new item that gets released and how easy it is to dupe some of the shades.
Next in this series we have the Natasha Denona Bronze palette. Y’all, I’m not even gonna front. I wanted this palette SO BAD and I created this post to talk myself out of buying it. Per Natasha’s website this palette has 15 new shades “in in entrancing brown & vibrant bronze shades.” That sounds just as gorgeous as it looks. For those of us that have been into eye shadows for a while, duping these shades may not be as hard to do. I was able to find quite a bit of shade duplicates with what I already have. Keep reading to check them out.Here are the Natasha Denona Bronze eyeshadow palette and swatches. The shade names and descriptions are from Natasha’s site. I love the descriptions because they made it easier to select the dupes.
I selected the shades as dupes in terms of finish and the shade/tone in the promo pics; not dupes in performance. The swatches on my arm were done over Milani’s eyeshadow primer and applied with a clean packing brush.

That’s it! The Natasha Denona Bronze eyeshadow palette really is gorgeous (to me!). If I didn’t have exact dupes for almost all of the shades, I would definitely be picking this up. I’ll probably see if I’m still interested by the time it goes on sale later on but I’m holding out for now.
One more thing. I have the Melt Cosmetics Rust palette on the way to me and may do a shade comparison post once I get it.
As always let me know your thoughts down below. Tag me on IG if you use any of these shades or if you have your own dupes.
Stay tuned to see what I’ll be duping next!
