Juvia's Place palettes are getting more and more popular in the online beauty community. Due to the popularity of the Masquerade Palette, Juvia's Place created a mini version. When I received this, it was much bigger than I thought for a "mini" palette! In fact, I would say that it's average size and the shadows included are average size.
This is a beautiful colorful palette inspired by African festivities. It includes 16 shadows, 11 shimmers and 5 mattes. The mattes are perfect transition and crease shades. The only thing I would say that's missing from this palette is a matte brownbone color.
All of the shadows are buttery and richly pigmented. They swatch beautifully.
|L-R: Chi, Mali, Dalia, Zola, Makeda, Zobo, Calabar, Bori|
|L-R: Giza, Burkina, Cairo, Ada, Dahia, Zulu, Casablanca, Fulani|
I absolutely LOVED the blues and greens in this palette. I love using Ada as a crease and outer V color. I can easily use the bottom 2 rows for day-time work appropriate looks.
Below is a look I created with this palette.
Crease - Burkina
Transition - Zulu, Ada
Lid - Chi, then Dalia layered on top
Outer V - Ada
Browbone - Giza
A little bit of gold glitter in the middle of my lids
You can get this palette on the Juvia's Place website for $30 (currently on sale for $28.75). They actually increased their prices, I bought this palette in October for only $25. I still think that $30 for this palette is a great price though! There's also usually a 10% coupon code online so be sure to look for one before you put in your order.
Do you have any of the Juvia's Place eyeshadow palettes?
