Biba Fever at House of Fraser!

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 7 - 2011

Back when Justin Bieber was nothing but a twinkle in his Grandfather’s eye, Biba was turning heads as an iconic 70s London store bringing fashion to the high street as the Top Shop of its day. The label is currently enjoying its 2nd relaunch and doing rather well, so much so, that the House of Fraser owned brand is on the cusp of relaunching Biba’s iconic makeup line with a beautiful capsule collection.

Biba Face Palette (34.00)

Six luxurious eyeshadows, a rich oyster pearl highlighter and dewy pink blusher to create alluring and sensuous looks-perfect from dawn unto dusk.


Biba Lipgloss Ring (£15.00)

This chunky cocktail ring will draw admiring glances with its nod to the iconic Biba logo. The lid slides to one side to reveal a shimmery pink gloss for the perfect pout! It can also be used to adorn your bag as a charm.


Biba Baked Eyeshadow Palette (£26.00)

Velvety soft mineral eyeshadows in opulent shades of molten metal and precious jewels. Use a dampened brush for intense long wearing colour.


Biba Luscious Lashes Duo (£18.00)

Biba lashes are sure to make a statement. Two pairs – one show stopping evening pair and one for a more natural day look will ensure that you are never overlooked.

Biba Lip Palette (£24.00)

Luscious and indulgent lip colours in five luxurious shades. Custom blend the lip colour for a unique style all of your own.

Biba Nail Polish Trio (£21.00)

Nail polish is the ultimate finishing touch to any look and these three stand-out shades will add a little something to every outfit.

.

So there we have it, the re-launch of Biba Makeup. Not, as Barbara Hulanicki would have it, I’m almost positive of that. The collection most obviously strays from the affordable ethos that the original Biba held so close to its heart but I can’t deny that I’m loving the look of that nail polish trio and the baked eye palette for its Biba aesthetics and shade choices.

I was lucky enough to have been sent the lashes from the capsule collection and have passed them on to madame Lash Queen (Liloo) who has promised to give them an outing for us in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Biba Beauty launches exclusively in House of Fraser from the 1st October 2011.

  1. Yah yah yah it looks super pretty, but considering its literally just produced by House of Fraser (since practically buying the brand) i’d rather splash my cash on a trusted brand. I’m sure these sadly will hit the bargain stands, among all the past season Biba clothing collections now heavily discounted. The Croydon branches Biba concession just collects dust. xxx

    (meow!)

  3. Saz says:

    Oooooh so much pretty! I want the face palette and the ring!

  4. This looks so beautiful, it’s really exciting!

    lisa eldridge’s tutorial about the old biba stuff was fascinating – wonder what she will think of this!

  6. RaeRae says:

    Not really loving the colours for this collection- wanted to be more of the off the wall shades that the original Biba makeup was well known for, those shades that are almost ugly. I would so wear that ring though.

  7. Julia says:

    The nailcolors are pretty…but the colors of the makeup are nowhere near as interesting as the vintage items Lisa showed us.

  8. EmmaDazzle says:

    I love the lashes! I am in love.

    Emma x.x.x

  9. Oh my–those palette are drool worthy and the ring is adorable! Does the House of FRazier ship to the US?

  10. Everything looks beautiful!

    O.M.G! I am in love. With it all. But that ring will be mine!
