Juvias Place: Nubian 2 Palette

Juvias Place is a brand that came to the forefront because of its eye shadow palettes and as an eye shadow fanatic, I had to try to get hold of it.  This American company is small and international shipping is not the cheapest so I was initially looking for a UK stockists.  They were always sold out so I eventually get it sent over via a friend.  It was worth the wait because  this is a really good palette.

There are twelve shades in total, four are matte and the rest of shimmers.  In the pan Sheba and Yaa look more like pressed glitters.  They have a softer texture than the other shimmer shadow and this translates when applied to the lid with a brush, A dry brush picks up the individual pigment particles and there is some fallout.  When you do a finger swatch or apply to the lid with the fingers the particles meld with the skin and there is no fall out at all.  If you have a glitter glue, it is worth using it with these shades.

The reason for the hype with these shadows is the level of pigmentation in the shades and the hype is real.  the Mattes are quite dry – not as dry as MAC shadows but they pack a punch.  The shimmers are outstanding.  These products are made in china but you get a ginormous amount of product.  each pan is XX grams so if, as I like to do, you want to use Nefertiti, Nairobi or Zuri as a face highlighter, you still have plenty of product to use on your face.  I plumped for Nubian 2 over Nubian 1 because it was brighter shades over Nubian 1 and Leyla which is a shimmery purple.

Juvia’s place hit the spotlight for a second time thanks to Jackie Aina’s BOMB makeup challenge.  Lots of people picked up that palette when they were doing their challenge.  As a result, the brand is now onto it’s fourth palette. There are also individual eyeshadow shades and brushes in the range.
