I never thought and expected that this palette would end up landing in my vanity. I hadn’t had any reaction when I first saw people on social media talk and use this palette, except for the fact that these Juvia’s Place palettes look so bright and colorful in all aspects. It was when I stumbled on Nikkietutorials’s Snapchat when she swatched each shade, that I fell in love with this brand and the palettes. They were amazingly pigmented.
And then I started to research about this brand completely and know about peoples reviews/thoughts on it, and to my surprise everything just blew my mind. Lemme put this in a single line, Juvia’s Place serves the BEST eyeshadow palettes ever but they have the WORST customer service. Yes, every video that I saw complained about the same issue again and again.
Okay the negatives apart, let’s talk about this beauty here.

PACKAGING : Let’s take a moment in appreciating Juvia’s Place for this gorgeous packaging. I mean, look at this! The Nubian2 palette comes in a bright yellow carton box with the brand name and the palette details on it. Inside is the palette wrapped in a bubble wrap. Thanks to Juvia’s for the double safety. The outer look of the palette is just same as the carton box. The palette is made with really thick cardboard, it feels really firm and sturdy. I totally love the illustration of the Fulani woman with long neck on the palette. She literally reminds me of Egyptian queen or like goddess or like Cleopatra herself (maybe they made this illustration keeping her in mind). And when you open the palette, we have this bright pink base where the shadow pans are placed. The pans are truly huge to say. The good thing about this palette is that each shade has its unique name. And I definitely see a lot of African nativity in the names.
A closer look at the shades –
TEXTURE, FORMULA, PIGMENTATION :
- Buttery smooth texture
- Extra-finely milled powders and glitters
- Crazily pigmented as hell
- Can be used with a brush or directly with fingers itself in both wet and dry forms.
- Not at all patchy
- Not at all chunky
- Absolutely no fallouts
- For glitters- a little goes a long way
For me, I didn’t find any con’s in this palette. But some may find that there aren’t much colors and transitions in this palette to play with.
The shades are in order from bottom to top. I just swirled my finger twice in each pan and swatched just once on my hand, and this is the result.
Omg😍 the swatches tell you everything. Could there be any eyeshadow palette with this crazy pigmentation? I guess I wouldn’t need any other palette in my life. I’m currently obsessed with this palette. And yay I got the Masquerade mini palette too, I’ll be sharing my thoughts about that too.
