I recently picked up the Magic Mini Palette from Juvia’s Place, and I am LOVING the fun looks that I have created with this palette! After hearing great reviews about the Juvia’s Place eyeshadow formula, I thought I would give my thoughts…
(My poor complexion was struggling when I created the look above.😱 It’s in better shape now.💖)
1. Color Selection- The shade range in this palette is beautiful! There is a nice base shade, a nice transition and tons of great colors! If you have brown eyes, these colors will make your eyes pop! I love the pinks, purples, greens, and blues! You could also create a simple daytime look or a warm neutral look with this palette. I love that there are colorful matte shades thrown in there, too.
2. Pigmentation- These shadows are not the most pigmented that I have seen, but they are very buildable. I think this makes the colorful shades more wearable, as you can kind of adjust the intensity for an everyday pop of color, or a bold, extravagant look.
3. Application- One thing to note about this formula, is that the shadows are kind of scratchy. This makes them a bit more difficult to blend, but they are not too hard to work with. I have gotten some really nice end results with this palette, but, in my experience, it does take some patience. There is also some fallout, so I would recommend doing your eye makeup before your complexion, especially if you’re going to use the darker shades in this palette.
4. Wear- I feel like these shadows wore very well. I noticed a small amount of shimmer that had transferred into my eye crease, and some slight fading of the lid shade just below the crease, but that was it. Both of these things happen frequently with my eyeshadow because I have very oily lids, and usually skip the eye primer. (I know, I should really use it!) No real trouble with the wear time at all!
Taking everything into account, I really, really like the formula of these shadows! I can use a light hand to add a small touch of color, or go all out and create something bold! Though it’s not a huge issue, my only real complaint would be the scratchy texture of the shadows, which just makes them a bit difficult to blend. At the end of the day, I can confidently say that this is a really nice palette full of variety! If you’ve been wondering about the Juvia’s Place shadow formula, it gets a thumbs up from me. There just *may* be a formula that I like better though… hint hint -> Colourpop.
