The Festival Palette by Juvia’s Place Review

thumbnail (57)

The Festival Palette from Juvia’s Place is fall in a palette. The red, orange and mustard yellow are perfect for this time of year but there’s also some fun pops that make this palette truly unique. This palette has nine shades; five mattes and four shimmer/satin shades. It contains 32.4 grams of product like all of their nine pan palettes. I’m going to give you all the pros and cons and then show you three looks I made just using this palette. I’m also going to show you a fourth look using just one shade from this palette with some singles I have.

Pros:

  • This palette is so versatile. You can get a super natural look or a super bold one just using this palette.
  • For the most part, all of the shades blend beautifully.
  • All of the shades are smooth and creamy.
  • Very little to no fallout.
  • No kickup in the pans.

Cons:

  • The shade Aba (mid tone turquoise) is so beautiful but it doesn’t always play well with others. I used it with Oro (mustard yellow) and Iri Ji (hot pink). It can look muddy and it does change colors when blended with other shades.
  • Odogwu (champagne) is not super blinding on the lid. It is beautiful but it takes a lot of building and a wet brush to really be opaque.
  • Uli (white), Keleke (black) and Aba (mid tone turquoise) aren’t really shimmers They’re more very shiny satin shades. The only true shimmer in the palette is Odogwu (champagne). This isn’t a con to me but might be to some.
  • The shades Ofala (orange), Izafa (red) and Iri Ji (hot pink) aren’t as vibrant as they look in the pan.

I’m going to show you three looks I made just using this palette. Since the shadows do have names I won’t be describing where they are in the palette. I do go in order of the swatches on my hand, left to right and top to bottom. You can click on the pictures to see them better.

I really liked the way this look turned out. It’s a more bold fall look. The shade Ofala (orange) kind of disappeared once it was blended into Izafa (red) but it’s there.

  1. I blended Ofala into the crease.
  2. I blended Izafa into Ofala in the outer part of the crease and applied it on about half the lid.
  3. I used Mmanwu on the innermost part of the crease blended into Ofala.
  4. I used Odogwu over the rest of the lid and the inner corner.
  5. I lined my eyes with Keleke.
  6. I smudged a mix of Ofala and Izafae under Keleke.

The blending on this could have been smoother but I still like how it turned out. Oro (mustard yellow) and Aba (mid tone turquoise) made an interesting green shade.

  1. I blended Oro all into the crease and outer V.
  2. I applied Aba all over the lid and blended it up into Oro.
  3. I used Odogwu as my inner corner highlight.
  4. I lined my eyes with Aba and smudged Oro underneath.

This is my favorite look I made with the palette. As I mentioned above, Aba gave me some trouble blending with Iri Ji and they created a patchy purple shade.

  1. I blended Iri Ji all into the crease and in the outer V.
  2. I applied Aba over most of the lid.
  3. I applied Uli in my inner corner and innermost part of my lid.
  4. I lined my eyes with Aba and smudged Iri Ji underneath.

This is a bonus look. I used my NYX single in Savage for most of this but I used the shade Keleke from this palette in my crease, outer V and lower lash line.

Like all of Juvia’s Place palettes, I recommend this one. However, I do feel like Juvia’s puts a red and a blue of some kind in every palette. I have PLENTY of those shades so anymore palettes that are predominantly those kind of colors I doubt I’ll be buying, from Juvia’s Place or anyone. Let me know what you think about this palette and if you’ve tried it! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
