Juvia's Place Saharan Palette

Sunday, 7 January 2018

I've tried a lot of eyeshadow palettes. Probably too many. Some of my favourites are quite inexpensive palettes so I rarely go for slightly more expensive ones. However, my queen NikkieTutorials has mentioned this brand Juvia's Place a few times on her channel so of course I had to buy one of their seriously gorgeous palettes. I am blown away by the quality and pigmentation of the shadows so I just had to let you all know about it. I got the saharan palette for Christmas but I know it is £30 which yes, is more pricey than other palettes but it's so worth it. They do so many palettes which are different sizes with different numbers of shadows but this one is fairly compact with 12 round shadow pans.

The shadows themselves have a unique formula. I haven't come across a similar formula of shadows before. They're creamy once you start swatching them but they still hold their pigment and don't feel fully smooth. It's so hard to describe but I really love how they feel because they're shadows but have that slight creaminess that makes them really easy to blend out.

Shade Range
I'm kind of in love with the shades. I love orange and brick red eyeshadows and that's what really drew me to this palette. There are matte and shimmer shades in the palette ranging from a vibrant yellow to a deep jet black colour. They're really versatile so the lighter shades could easily be used for soft day time looks and the darker warm shades would be perfect for a night out look.

I'm absolutely blown away by the pigment on these shadows. The colour pay off on the shimmer shades is out of this world and there's zero fallout on the skin. I could rave about the pigment all day. Seriously blinding shimmer colours and full coloured mattes. Absolutely amazing.

Value For Money
Overall, I would definitely recommend this palette. For £30 you really do get what you pay for; amazingly pigmented eyeshadows that are long lasting and easy to work with. I attempted (attempted being the operative word) to do a cut crease with my favourite shades; Katsina, Jamila and Wodaabe. I'm no makeup guru or artist but it didn't look half bad so if I can do a cut crease, this palette is a miracle.

Have you tried this palette? What are your thoughts?

  1. So funny to be reading this - I was scrolling through Beauty Bay last night and this palette caught my attention, but I managed to talk myself out of it. Think you may have just sold it to me ;-) I must look into Juvia's place more - the pigmentation looks insane.
