Happy Monday, darlings! Project BOMB is still underway and now that we’ve got the lips covered with Iman, we can move on to the eyes with Juvia’s Place. Juvia’s Place is a newer brand that just popped up on the scene a couple of years ago with their vibrant African-themed eyeshadow palettes that are crazy pigmented and out of this world beautiful. For months, I had been eyeing a few of Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palettes because the color schemes are so unique and I’ve seen so many people raving about how awesome their eyeshadows are.
Sometimes, I try to avoid the hype but when it comes to Juvia’s Place, I’m glad I gave in because the Mini Masquerade Eyeshadow Palette is brimming with #blackgirlmagic. Like the rest of Juvia’s palettes, the Mini Masquerade Palette features a stunning Egyptian-inspired illustration on the cover and super bright packaging that’s both fun and girly.
The Mini Masquerade Palette features an interesting color story that you don’t normally see too often. There’s 16 shades including 8 bold bright shadows and 8 neutral shadows. I dig this set up because you get the best of both worlds without having to splurge on two separate palettes. Plus, you have everything you need to create a complete look thanks to the more subtle neutrals that can act as transition shades for the bolder brights.
The Juvia’s Place Mini Masquerade Palette was in heavy rotation this weekend because it’s so versatile so it fit every mood I was in. When I wanted to add a little color, I simply swept Calabar all over my lid with Burkina and Fulani in the crease to smoke it out. When I was in the mood for something a little more natural, I swept Burkina into my crease to transition and added Ada and Fulani to define my outer corner. Then I patted the magical Casablanca on the lid for a little bronzed glam and added falsies to top it all off.
After using the Juvia’s Place Mini Masquerade Palette for a few weeks I can totally see why so many makeup artists and bloggers have been raving about her palettes. The Mini Masquerade Palette is super pigmented, blends like a dream and lasts all day–even without a primer. I’m so pleased to see another black woman putting her heart into her passion and killing it! You go Juvia’s Place! If you haven’t already, head over to her site (here) to order your palette today.
