The Masquerade Palette by Juvia’s Place Review

thumbnail (71)

I told myself repeatedly that I did not need the Masquerade Palette from Juvia’s Place and technically it’s not a “need” but I am so glad I added this palette to my growing Juvia’s collection. This is truly a palette with a little bit of everything. This palette is available in two sizes. The mini size, what I have, is $25.00 and the large is $30.00. This palette has 24 grams of product and contains sixteen shadows: five mattes, nine shimmers and two mattes with micro glitter. I’ll tell you all the pros and cons then show you five looks I made just using this palette.

Pros:

  • This palette has a wide array of shadows from neutrals to brights. This makes creating a variety of looks very easy.
  • These shadows are creamy, pigmented and easy to blend.
  • I did not notice any fading throughout the day.

Cons:

  • There was a good bit of fallout with these shadows and the brighter colors do stain the face, especially the pink (Bori) and blue (Chi).
  • Only one of the brighter colors, the purple/pink (Zobo), is a matte. I would’ve loved to have a blue matte as well.

*I’m going to show you five looks I made only using this palette. I’m still pretty new to working with brighter colors so these might not be the best or most creative looks. I like to put these in my reviews so you can see the eyeshadows actually on my eyes. Since these eyeshadows do have names I won’t be describing where they are in the palette but I do go in the order that they’re swatched on my hand. You can click on each picture to see it better. 

When I’m trying out a new palette I always create the most neutral look first. I liked the way this turned out.

  1. I  put Burkina and Fulani in the crease, focusing Fulani on the outer V. I also mixed Burkina and Fulani on my lower lash line.
  2. I used Dahia all over my lid.
  3. I used Giza in the inner corner.

This was my absolute favorite look I made with this palette.

  1. I used Zobo in the crease.
  2. I used Bori all over the lid.
  3. I used Makeda in the center of the lid.
  4. I mixed Zobo and Makeda on the lower lash line.
  5. I used Giza in the inner corner.

I loved this look as well and will be doing it again in the fall.

  1. I used Zulu and Fulani in the crease, focusing Fulani on the outer V. I mixed these two shades on my lower lash line as well.
  2. I used Casablanca all over my lid.
  3. I used Giza in the inner corner.

I think if I was a bit more skilled at working with color this look could have been better but I’m still pretty happy with how it came out.

  1. I used Chi in the crease, on the part of the lower lash line closest to the V and on the outermost part of the lid. This is a shimmer shade but I just blended it until it looked matte for my crease.
  2. I used Dalia on the lid closest to Chi and in the same place on the lower lash line.
  3. I used Zola closest to Dalia on the lid, same place on the lower lash line.
  4. I used Mali on the inner corner and on the innermost part of the lid.
  5. I used Giza as a brow bone highlight.

Juvia’s Place almost always has some fiery reds in their palettes and this one was no exception. I wasn’t crazy about this look but it turned out okay.

  1. I used Ada all in the crease.
  2. I used Calabar and Cairo mixed all over the lid.
  3. I used Giza in the inner corner, in the center of my lid and as a brow bone highlight.
  4. I mixed Ada and Cairo on my lower lash line.

I think I recommend this palette more than any other Juvia’s Place palette for the variety alone. All of their palettes are excellent quality but with this one you can go super neutral, super bold and everywhere in between. The looks I created are just a handful of what can be done with these eyeshadows. Have you tried this palette? Do you think it’s one you’d love? Let me know! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
