Natasha Denona Biba Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Biba

Natasha Denona Biba 15-Pan Eyeshadow Palette is a new, permanent palette that features three Metallic eyeshadows, four Cream-Powder eyeshadows (more slip, more of a satin finish), and eight matte eyeshadows. It’s a neutral-themed palette with the first row being more orange-based, the second row being more red/rosy-toned, and the bottom being more neutral/desaturated. I actually think the shades could have worked as three five-pan palettes! There were no troublesome shades in the palette, and the palette felt cohesive so it could work as a standalone, workhorse kind of palette but could also be paired with more colorful palettes, too. The eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Rustic (214M)

Rustic (214M) is a rich, golden bronze with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The color payoff was fantastic, while the eyeshadow had a creamy, smooth texture that was dense without being too firmly pressed in the pan or too thick on my skin.

Prairie (215CM)

Prairie (215CM) is a muted, light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It was like a melange of mustard, brown, and orange to my eye–hard to nail down! The texture was velvety, more firmly-pressed in the pan, and seemed to have slight slip compared to the other shades. It seemed to adhere a bit more strongly in places but blended out well. It had opaque color payoff that lasted well for eight and a half hours on my skin before it showed signs of wear.

Coco is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out with little effort. The consistency was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan, but maintained its intensity when applied. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Freckle (217CM) is a soft, medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish.

Rayon (221CP)

Rayon (221CP) is a faded, medium reddish-copper with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage, but the Cream-Powder formula has a distinctive feel and result: denser, firmer texture that yields a lighter-than-the-pan color. I find slightly denser or firmer/stiffer brushes to be ideal for using with the Cream-Powders, as they pick up product better. The upside was that there was no powderiness, and the product blended out easily while sitting well on my skin. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before it started to fade on me.

Buff (222CM)

Buff (222CM) is a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, velvety, and finely-milled without being too powdery or prone to sheering out on my skin. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Tone (223CP)

Tone (223CP) is a slightly bright, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was smooth to the touch but denser and more firmly-pressed, so it worked better with a heavier hand or a denser brush for opaque coverage. The satin finish helped it blend easily on my skin, whether paired with mattes in the palette or with shimmers. It had opaque pigmentation that wore well for eight hours before fading a bit on my skin.

Tor (225CP)

Tor (225CP) is a soft, light-medium taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It seemed more shimmery in the pan than it did when applied to my skin. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable, though it didn’t feel quite as cream-like as other Cream-Powder shades did in the palette. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer and built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Sculpture (226CM)

Sculpture (226CM) is a soft, grayish-taupe with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It appeared slightly cooler-toned when paired with other cool-toned shades but seemed to be closer to neutral to neutral-warm on its own. The texture was soft, lightly powdery and prone to a bit of sheering out when I worked with it on my bare lid. It had good pigmentation to start with and was buildable. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Spot (227CP)

Spot (227CP) is a soft black with a satin sheen. It built up to a slightly deeper, richer black hue, even though it had opaque coverage from the get go. It has a Cream-Powder formula, which means it had a denser, firmer, and almost stiffer consistency compared to the brand’s other eyeshadow finishes; it worked better with denser/firmer brushes as a result. I found the color easy to control, so it was nice for darkening other shades, and it had the blendability and pigmentation needed to work as a standalone shade as well. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Tusk (228CM) is a muted, medium yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it needed a second layer for full opacity, paired with a soft, velvety consistency that was slightly powdery. The eyeshadow applied evenly to my skin and blended out well. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before it started to fade on my skin.
