Are you thinking of getting the Natasha Denona BIBA palette for Christmas?
If you’re still on the fence whether to say bye bye to your precious cash or skip this product… then read on!
I’m giving you my honest to goodness opinion about this much talked about product!
So, why did I get this palette?
As a professional makeup artist, I try my best to keep up with the new makeup trends and products.
Many of my clients who book me for their parties and weddings are very knowledgeable now about makeup brands and they often ask me about the products I use.
This is one of the reasons why I made sure that I had to have this palette. I wanted to test it out and see if this brand will be something that I will continuously use.
What’s in it?
In a nutshell, the BIBA palette has 15 ultimate eyeshadows in a range of colors from mauves and burgundies, to warm grays and black.
But sadly, my black shadow came in completely broken. (Had it shipped)
In terms of formula – depending on the shade, they all have the signature ND formulas:
CP– Richly pigmented wet powder formula that is easy to blend.
CM– ND’s Signature matte formula is creamy to the touch and seamlessly blends on the lid.
CK– Sparkling cream powder finely milled pearls and crystals for a dazzling diamond-like sparkle effect. Sheer finish.
M– metallics in multiple textures
SO, what’s good about this palette?
Let’s start with the PROS…
This palette is great if you DON’T HAVE any other neutral palette.
If you’re a beginner who’s looking for a starter palette…
If your eyeshadow palette is totally gone and you need a brand new one.
The BIBA palette is great for you because the range of colors allows you to use it every day – whether for work of for casual everyday makeup.
The darker and metallic colors also give you the flexibility to use them for more formal or glam events as you can also create SMOKEY or BRONZY looks.
The shadows are also easy to work with and almost NO fall-out…
making them the BEST PALETTE to have if you’re just starting out with makeup.
the palette also comes with “HOLES” at the back so you can easily depot the colors into your professional palette.
Are there negatives?
Okay, HERE’S THE DEAL:
The Natasha Denona BIBA palette is priced at 500 Dirhams in UAE (around $135 USD).
For an eyeshadow palette, that’s quite expensive. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
To put it in perspective, that’s ALMOST DOUBLE the price of a Huda Beauty or an Urban Decay eyeshadow palette!
If you are a professional makeup artist, I would bet that you probably have these shades already or very similar shades in your collection.
For this reason, it becomes an unnecessary expense for you, unless of course, you need to stock up on your eyeshadow palettes.
If you are on a budget and you can’t get your hands on this…
REGRET NOT! All the shades are dupable, but of course, will not have the same formulation.
If money is NOT an issue,
everyone would love this palette because of the AMAZING formula – whether you’re a beginner, makeup enthusiast or a professional MUA like me.
MY PERSONAL TAKE?
All in all, it is a good palette. I will continue using it.
Will I buy it again?
Probably NOT, I will wait for another Natasha Denona Palette with more unique shades in the future.
