Juvia’s Place The Saharan II Palette Review

April 14, 2018

I am obsessed with Juvia’s Place. Obsessed! For Christmas, I received The Magic Palette which quickly became one of my all-time favourite eyeshadow palettes. A few weeks ago I bought The Saharan 2 Palette which is so beautiful. I could not describe to you the excitement I felt when it arrived! I’ve had a while to test it out and create some pretty out there looks so without further ado let’s get into the review!

First Impressions:

Saharan palette

I bought this palette on Beauty Bay for only £20, I cannot get over how affordable these palettes are considering how much product you get and the high quality of the shadows. This palette has 9 rich toned shades that include matte, metallic and duo chrome that are 3.6g each. All the colours are stunning, with a couple of shades that really stand out to me, and you have the opportunity to create either vibrant or more neutral looks. Honestly, I tend to go more for the vibrant, bold eye makeup, I just love colour and glitter and want it all over my eyeballs!

The palette is a pretty decent size, smaller than The Magic Palette, obviously as it has fewer shades, but it probably isn’t small enough to be travel-friendly. The packaging is beautiful, I love the deep purple and bright yellow colour scheme. It’s really eye-catching when surrounded by the other palettes on my desk. Again it’s made from a sturdy cardboard, it doesn’t feel cheap or flimsy at all, and features some gorgeous illustrations.

Juvia’s Place Description:

Introducing the highly pigmented, hot and spicy vibe, The Saharan II Eyeshadow Palette consists of nine highly pigmented metallic shades, duo chromes and matte shades that will transform you into a regal goddess. Inspired by the rich colours in Moroccan spices, herbs, cities and rich patterns. A one of a kind journey through in the beauty realm.

The Shades:

Saharan palette

Marrakesh – A beautiful metallic peachy pink with flecks of gold.

Aziza – Champagne gold that’s perfect for inner corner highlight.

Hadiya – A pretty light copper shade.

Nomad – Metallic cranberry colour with red/orange shift. This is my favourite shade in the palette, it’d be perfect for autumn!

Berber – This is such a gorgeous colour! A vibrant, glittery sea blue that makes me feel like a mermaid.

Chefchaouen – A metallic icy mint green. This looks great paired with Berber!

Fez – Dark brown matte shade with red undertones. Perfect for darkening the outer corners.

Zohra – Deep matter burgundy. I love this colour and have used it quite a bit, it’s stunning with Nomad and again will be perfect for Autumn!

Taza – A burnt orange that I’ve used in all the looks I’ll be showing you today. It’s great for a transition and lower lashline colour!

The Looks:

1.) For the first look, I used Taza on the outer corner and into the crease, Hadiya all over my lid, Aziza for the inner corners and Zohra on my lower lash line. For some reason, Hadiya looks completely different from the swatch on my arm compared to when it’s actually on my lid, more like gold rather than copper. Either way, I thought this look was very phoenix-like and great for any Gryffindors out there!

2.) The second look is my personal favourite. First I used Berber on the outer corner and blended it toward the centre of the lid, then Chefchaouen over the centre of my lid, Aziza in the inner corners and Taza on my lower lashline. I also used some silver Nyx Glitter in the crease and finished it off with my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. I got some serious Princess Jasmine vibes from this look and loved it!

3.) For my last look I used Taza as my transition shade, Zohra on the outer corners and into the crease and Nomad all over the lid. I really liked how this turned out, Nomad is a stunning colour and one I’ll be using a lot!

Final Thoughts:

Again I am blown away by the quality and pigmentation of this palette. The metallic shades are to die for! It is fairly tricky to use because the colours are so pigmented and I think if I had spent more time blending the matte shades the above looks would’ve looked a million times better. They are all incredibly buttery smooth and there isn’t one shade I dislike. I can’t wait to use it more and feel like when autumn finally arrives again the Saharan Palette will be a staple! I think it’s now safe to say Juvia’s Place is my favourite brand for eyeshadow. Both palettes I’ve tested have been incredible, jaw-dropping and makes my heart very happy! You need at least one in your collection!
