Natasha Denona Biba Palette Review, Swatches and Video

Not Sponsored: This is part two of my Natasha Denona Summer Collection Review. You can read part one here. Today, I'll be reviewing the Natasha Denona Biba Eye Shadow Palette (Sephora, Harrods). As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I've only tried Natasha Denona's Camel Eye Shadow Palette (Sephora, Harrods). I've never tried one of her larger palettes. It's a little nerve-racking, because her larger palettes are very expensive. With that kind of investment, you want it to work out and hope there are many options (uses out of the palette). The Biba Palette is considered an all neutral eye shadow palette. On Natasha Denona's website, she says "Biba will always have you covered! With multiple textures of the most user-friendly shades ranging from mauves and burgundies, to warm grays and black." As I pressed the purchase button, I kept saying "Natasha, I hope so!" LOL I'm happy to say I LOVE this palette! Let me tell you why.

Natasha Denona | Biba Eyeshadow Palette (Outer Packaging)
Let's start with the outer box. It's a ballet pink. Very simple writing. 
All the shade names are listed on the back. This eye shadow palette is good for 24 months upon opening.  

Below are the colors and formula explanations:

The eye shadow palette is the same color as the outer packaging. It has a full-size workable mirror. On the back are small holes. You can pop-out each eye shadow pan if you wish. However, these pans are VERY SECURE inside the palette. There was no jiggling or moving around whatsoever. You'll find beiges, browns, greys, blacks, burgundies and peach themes in this palette. When I first looked at the palette, I wasn't sure about the shades. Remember what I said about the Camel Palette? Many of the colors pulled darker than they looked in the pan. Well, with this palette everything swatched the same way it looked in the palette. Also, all colors were easy to apply and highly pigmented. They applied well and blended easily. I was so pleased. I'm not an eye shadow expert. I love simple and non-fussy looks. I love a wash of color over the eyes. If you're scared of eyeshadow or big eye shadow palettes in general, you won't be with this palette. The shadows are easy to apply. This palette has a lot of options. It has year-round colors. You can take your look from day to night. I'm going to get a lot of use out of this palette. And will probably make future videos using more of the shades.

In the pictures and video below, I used FRECKLE from lid to brow bone. I used FRECKLE underneath my lower lashes. I used BUFF in the crease of my lid. I used SHINE on my eye lid. I used SEED to line underneath my lower lashes. I used the new IT Cosmetics Drybar Lash Blowout Mascara (ULTA, QVC, Sephora, Macys) for both my top and lower lashes. I used IT Cosmetics Brow Power (ULTA, Macys, Sephora, QVC ) on my eyebrows. I used Natasha Denona Metallic NUDE METALLICA Liquid Lipstick (Harrods, Sephora) on my lips. My Bronzer, Highlighter and Blush are from Natasha Denona's Tan Bronze & Glow Palette (Sephora, Harrods) that I reviewed and did a video on Monday. My foundation is Too Faced Born This Way Liquid Foundation (Nordstrom, Macys, Sephora, QVC, Selfridges) in Natural Beige. My under-eye concealer is Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector Medium To Deep (ULTA, Bloomingdales, Sephora, QVC). My concealer is Tarte Shape Tape in Medium. My primer is REN Perfect Canvas Serum Primer (Sephora, Bloomingdales, Net A Porter, Selfridges, SpaceNK, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus).
