Juvia’s Place The Zulu Palette Swatches!

Hi friends! Sorry I updated so late today! My birthday was on Thursday and my mom wanted to take my daughter and I out for the day. It was a blast 🙂 we just got back a bit ago and I made dinner and completely realized that I didn’t update this awesome palette on here today! This is the new Juvia’s Place The Zulu Eyeshadow palette. This palette was on sale for $17.99 which is a steal for these limited edition colors. Let’s have a closer look.

These palettes always have such a celebration of heritage and lovely design. The palette is pretty compact. 

The back of the palette is always blank and the information is on the boxes. This box has a small blurb celebrating the Ndebele people, the ingredients, company information and that this product is cruelty-free.

These are the shades! There are six bright matte shades and three shimmer shades. I am such a fan of bright colors I needed this in my collection. The one reason I didn’t jump on the Naked Heat palette by Urban Decay is because they didn’t include a yellow. I just wish the shades impressed me more.

For the swatches, I did them by row so there are three shades in each row.

This first row is all matte shades that are very pigmented. They didn’t have names so I’ll just describe them by sjade. The bright orange reminds me of Sugarpill’s Flamepoint but you can’t go wrong with so many oranges. The yellow is very vibrant and pigmented. Yet again, it reminds me of Buttercupcake by Sugarpill. This last shade is a burnt orange that is very pigmented and a nice shade to work wirh.

The middle row is my favorite in this palette. The first shade is a bright almost matte turquoise shade with a green tint to it. It blends very well and used it in a look on Saturday. The middle is a shimmery lime green with sparkle. As always, Juvia’s Place has amazing shimmer shades. The last shade reminds me of the ocean. It is a bright blue with silver sparkle. This is so bright and pretty. 

The last row has beautiful shades in it. The first one is a shimmer shade. It has a rose base with a lot of gold sparkle in it. The next shade is a bright matte red shade. I really enjoy the texture and shade of this usual red. It is bright. The last shade is a pretty matte purple that blends quite well. 

This palette is a steal for the price and the color pay out. The pans are a decent size and Juvia’s always delivers a decent product. Xo


Juvia’s Place The Magic Eyeshadow Palette Swatches!

Hi friends! I hope that you had a good weekend! There was a lot of rain so I had a nice catch up weekend on horror movies. That would be my third passion other than makeup and video games.  Today this palette showed up at my door. This is the new The Magic palette by Juvia’s Place. There are 16 shades in here that help you make day and night looks. There was a recent YouTube video going around about this company having bad customer service and somebody receiving a used blush palette. Thankfully, I’ve never had a bad experience with shipping or this company at all. I’m going to show you how it was packaged, the palette front and back and of course, swatches!

After I took my palette out of the cardboard box filled with packing peanuts, this is how it was packaged. Bubble wrap is always a good sign! After I unwrapped it…
It looked like this! I was so happy because even though I never experienced anything bad in the past, makes me paranoid about future purchases. This the front of the box and as you all know from my previous posts, the front of the palette always matches the box.
Here is the back of the box and the palette. The actual palette is always plain with nothing printed. The back of the box is where you can find the cruelty-free statement, the distribution location, the weight, ingredients and a small write-up about the inspiration behind the palette. It says, ‘The Magic palette was inspired by the moon and sun goddesses of the wilds. A beautiful fusion of cold and warm tones. Vibrantly infused with 16 ultra pressed pigments. Perfect for day to night time looks’.
Here is the inside of the palette! No mirror yet haha, but the design in the inside matches the outside of the palette. As you can see, the pans are pretty big so for the price of $35, this isn’t a bad deal at all!

Before I get to the swatches and you’re a new reader or subscriber, I did four shades in each arm swatch with a finger and brush swatch. There are four rows and four shades. Let’s get started!

This first row focuses on light shades with a very nice gold. Nubia is a yellow with a gold shimmer to intensify the colors. I’m a sucker fur a nice gold shade that swatches great by brush and finger. Zakiya is a burnt orange matte shade. The brush swatch made this look a bit more brown. Osun is a light pink with silver shimmer shade. All the shimmer shades swatch very nicely and are very pigmented. The last shade, Kesi is a light beige matte that can be used for a good base shade or crease. 
This row has a bunch of vibrant shades. Zuba is a pretty pink shade that has a gorgeous gold shift to it. It reminds me of Sugarpill’s Trinket liquid lipstick as an eyeshadow. Nana is a matte honey brown that swatched decently. Boronu is a light brown shade with some gold shimmer added to it. The last shade I love. Kogi is an amazing matte neon red. I’ve longed for a shade like this in my collection. 
In the third row, we have all shimmer and no matte. Faso is a light lavender shade that shifts to a bright purple shimmer. Yes. This could be my new fsvorite go to for everyday. Aja is a black shade that has a forest green shimmer to it. This shade was kind of stiff and took a lot to swatch but the payoff is good. Vai is like a gunmetal gray with silver shimmer. This swatched so nicely with both techniques. Yemoja is last. This one is a light grayish blue with some white and silver shimmer in it. It makes for a pretty unique shimmer shade.
The last row in this palette has two matte shades and two shimmer shades. Ife is the darkest purple I’ve ever seen. I love this. I seriously thought this shade would be a matte black at first but I was so wrong. This one is a bit firm but can definitely be built up. Yara is a sea green shade with a muted yellow and gray shimmer. Buzo is a beautiful emerald green shimmer shade. It is so buttery and pigmented. The last shade is Yejide. This one is a dark matte navy blue shade. This one is also a bit stiff in pan but works better on skin.

Okay friends, that is the preview and swatch of the brand new Juvia’s Place The Magic Eyeshadow Palette! I hope you enjoyed my review! Xo

Juvia’s Place The Nubian Palette Swatches!

Hi loves! I know you all read about me raving about Juvia’s Place so much but I need to get all the swatches down so you all can see how beautiful these are! This one is the original Nubian palette! 

Here is the front of the palette! This one is more compact than the other palettes which is nice for a travel size.
Here’s the back of the palette. It has the same layout as the other palettes. On the actual palette, it is just a blank side and the box gives the information. The same information (description, website, location and ingredients) are all printed there.
Here is the inside of the palette. There is no mirror which in my opinion would have made the palette perfect. There are twelve shades in here that are a nice variety of mattes and shimmer shades.

Since the shades do not have names, I swatched them by row in the same fashion just with no names. For example, it will be row one and the shadows from left to right. 

Here is the first row! The two matte shades are in the middle. One is a muted orange and a beige with an orange undertone to it. The outer two are your shimmer shades. The first one is a pretty light beige with a pink pearl tone to it that shines. The last shade is straight up sparkle that swatches very well.
Row two is all straight up shimmer. There’s a copper, gold, cranberry and brown. These are super pigmented and would be great for your eyelid or to do that fun halo trend.
The last row alternates shadows. They go shimmer then matte, and repeat. What I like about this row is you can use the shimmer and matte combo for a very nice toned look. The first shimmer is a burnt orange metallic shade. The one next to it is a dark beige with orange tones. The third is a dark brown with a gold shimmer to it and the last matte is a dark brown that swatched pretty well.

Overall, I love this palette. There are a lot of looks that you can build with it and all of them blend together extremely well. It is very tiny and you still get a lot of shadow in it. The cost of this beauty is a very affordable $30. It is usually on sale for $23.50.

Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette Swatches!

Hi friends! Today looks like such a pretty day so far! I’m all about blogging and getting outside! Today I decided to swatch one of the super pigmented Juvia’s Place palettes. These by far are super smooth and buttery and very affordable. I know I said on a past Juvia’s post that they do run sales often so please check them out! Okie dokey, let’s get started!

Here is the front of the palette. It has the palette name and brand. There is also an illustration of Nefertiti in the middle.
Here is the back of the palette. The actual palette has nothing printed on the back but the box has the ingredient list, website and a tiny paragraph about the inspiration of the palette.
Here’s the inside of the palette! The pans are pretty big in comparison to most eyeshadow palettes. All the names of the shadows are on the palette and there is no mirror. The colors are fun and you get a lot of variety.

I did all the swatches with finger and brush and also by row. 🙂

Here is the first row of the palette. These tones are all very warm and swatch beautifully. Morocco is a bright matte orange. Madagascar is a nice matte light brown that can be a transition or base. Sheba and Yaa are both shimmer shades that are just as pigmented on the brush! 
Here is the second row! I love this row because there are so many varying shades in it. Jezebel is a dark burgundy matte shade. Zuri, Cleopatra, and Nefertiti are all shimmer shades that really speak of Egypt. Zuri is a beautiful white shimmer shade, Cleopatra reminds me of the waters of the Nile and Nefertiti is a gorgeous shimmery orange that is so bright, it reminds me of the sun.
Here is the last row! Nairobi is the most swatchable gold shimmer shade I’ve ever seen. Leyla is a shimmery brown that you can blend out for added drama. Kenya is a matte clay color that has dark red tones in it. Egypt is an amazing shimmery green that is almost emerald quality. 

Please do yourself a favor and purchase one of These! Your eyes will thank you! ❤❤

Juvia’s Place Saharan Palette Swatches!

If you haven’t ever hear or seen any swatches of these please, read this and then check out this company! Juvia’s Place products are affordable, super pigmented, and beautiful. The shipping and processing is super fast and I’ve loved everything that I ever bought from them. They run daily sales on their palettes and brush sets so keep your eyes peeled! This swatch and palette review is on their newest one, The Saharan. This palette runs for $30. On their website, it says this palette was inspired by the Fulani culture. This has twelve shades that vary in shimmer, matte and transition. I’ll stop raving and show you some pictures! 

Here’s the front of the palette. It is nice for travel because of the size. It is a bright orange-red with a woman who is part of the Fulani culture on the palette.
The back of the palette is plain orange-red while the box has the name of the palette, ingredients and that it is cruelty-free.
Here’s the inside of the palette. There is no mirror but it definitely doesn’t change how I feel about the performance of the shadows. All these colors are so vibrant and beautiful!

Here come the swatches! I’ve done them by two so each picture will have four shades on them!

Here’s the first row! Check out how bright Sokoto is! Wodaabe is one of the best gold shimmers I’ve ever used! Kia and Bororo are great shimmers also!
The second row has some nice variety. Iman is a gorgeous whitish blue shimmer shade. Jamila is a matte orange where the other two, Zoya and Senegal are nice base or transition shades.
This last row has two matte shades: Chad and Katsina. The last two, Lulu and Fula are beautiful shimmer shades that are super buttery and smooth in application.
