I've been wanting to try a Juvia's Place palette for forever!😂 I finally got the "Nubian Royal" palette on sale for $9 a few weeks back, and these are my thoughts.
💜 Packaging: The packaging is a magnetic close type. I love the Egyptian motif and colors used on it!!! Very pretty. There was also a thin plastic sheet over the shades to keep them super fresh.
👑 The Shades: HOLY HELL these shades are absolutely rich, decadent and just GORGEOUSSSS! I love purple eyeshadow, and this palette has some very unique shades! One of them almost has a chocolate base with a violet/blue sparkly shift. VERY COOL💜 And the pressed glitter is perfection! Of course, they also have a few mattes for good measure. I find that the shades could absolutely be toned down for a daytime look as well as a full GLAM look.
💜 The Formula: The formula, first off, is SUPER pigmented! It even kind of stained my eyes pink🤦♀️ Just use some Ponds or Micellar Water and you'll be ok! The mattes seemed to go on just a bit patchy, but they're workable. The metallics, duochrome and pressed glitter smooth on like butter🥞 There's very little kickback, and minimal (if any) fallout when applying. They seem to blend easily as well👍
💜👑💜 Verdict: YES! This is DEFINITELY worth the hype! I am super happy with my purchase and plan on buying more! The prices are perfect for those of us on a budget. If you want true color payoff at a GREAT price, I suggest Juvia's Place.
