We have reached the last day of February meaning the end of Black History Month, but that doesn’t mean that we stop celebrating and acknowledging our history.
I am starting this new segment on my blog where I will be talking about a black business that provide products for women of color, whether make up, hair products, jewelry etc..
The first company I would like to talk about today is Juvia’s Place. Just a quick disclaimer: I am not paid to write this post and neither was I sent any product to review. I spent my own coins to get the palettes I’m about to mentioned and this is my overall honest opinion.
I know there has been a lot of controversy surrounding Juvia’s place. I have watched so many videos on youtube and many youtubers were not satisfied with the customer service department, stating that the representative was rude. Based on my experience, I didn’t have any issues from the time I placed my orders to the time I received them. The shipping time wasn’t long at all. I also love the fact they sent me emails letting me know the status of my orders. In order words, my customer service experience was great. My palettes came intact and were well packaged and there weren’t any broken eyeshadows.
I ordered both the Masquerade and Saharan palettes. I decided to skip on the nubian palettes and order the Masquerade palette because I feel that the Masquerade palette has a mixture of both nude and color eyeshadows. As for the Saharan palette, I ordered it because of the burnt orange colors.
Here are some swatches from the Masquerade palette
There are 16 colors in this palette and they all have a name. The eyeshadows in this palette are quite large. This palette cost $52 CAD that includes shipping.
And here are the swatches from the Saharan palette
There are 12 colors in this palette and they all have a name as well. This palette cost $47 CAD that includes shipping.
As you can see, the eyeshadows are pigmented, although some are more pigmented than others, and they swatch very well. Both palettes contain matte and shimmery eyeshadows.
That is all for this post. Let me know in the comments if you have any one of the palettes from Juvia’s Place and if you love them or not. Thanks for reading, until next time!
