Indie makeup brand Juvia’s Place has quickly risen to frame with their African – themed high quality makeup palettes. The affordable price and highly pigmented shadows make this brand a favorite amongst makeup enthusiasts, especially women of color. Never one to disappoint, Juvia’s Place has introduced blush palettes, and they are to DIE for. I already own two Juvia’s palettes, the Nubian 1 and 2, so I decided to try the Saharan palettes. Look at these amazing swatches below:


The Saharan by Juvia’s

Lila: metallic rose gold, also great for highlights

Zane: magenta pink

Aby: deep burgundy with brown undertone, would look great as a contour (also reminds me of MAC film noir blush)

Overall thoughts: 

These palettes are AMAZING. I have nothing negative to say about them. The pigmentation is out of this world, and just so you know, all the swatches were done without any primers. For the prices you also get a good variety of colors and more than adequate pan sizes. I expected nothing less than greatness from Juvia’s Place, and they have exceeded my expectations. I love that the makeup is great for women of darker skin as well, being that a lot of makeup palettes lack appropriate amount of pigmentation or color range for women of color. These palettes frequently sell out  (and rightfully so, they’re amazing!) so make sure you sign up for their emails to be notified when they’re restocked.

I ended up ordering both of these too and I can’t wait to use them this week! My blush palette just came yesterday and it’s even prettier in person. It looks so perfect for us! She did her thing with that blush palette for sure!
