Juvia’s Place The Tribe Palette Review

The Tribe Palette is one of the newer ones from Juvia’s Place. It is $20.00 for nine eyeshadows, five mattes and four shimmers. This palette is definitely up to the typical Juvia’s Place standard but there are some things about it that I’m not crazy about. Let’s get into all the pros, cons, swatches and looks!

Pros:

  • As with most Juvia’s Place palettes, this one has a unique color story. Of course, you’ll need to like greens and oranges to enjoy this one.
  • All of the eyeshadows are creamy, pigmented and have little fallout.
  • Most of the eyeshadows are easy to blend.

Cons:

  • I struggled to create a wide variety of looks just using this palette. I created four, which you’ll see below, but I think any other look I create will end up being a similar variation of one of those. I just don’t feel the oranges and greens mesh well together but that might be a lack of creativity on my part.
  • The darkest green, San, is a STRUGGLE to blend out. It’s very pigmented and it also seemed to grab and sink into any lines on my eyes. I’ve only had this issue with one other palette, the Morphe 35M.
  • I would have liked to have one more matte shade, other than the deepest green, to deepen the crease with. I feel a darker brown would have really added to this palette.

Swatches

*There are not shade descriptions on the Juvia’s Place website so I will describe them to the best of my ability.

From left to right: Maasai (matte yellow), Oromo (matte orange), Tutsi (matte lime green), Koro (champagne shimmer with green reflects), Chaga (bronzey/orange shimmer with gold reflects), Kuba (black based teal shimmer with light teal reflects), Ashanti (matte yellowish brown), Kuria (orange shimmer with faint gold reflects) and San (deep matte green) 

Eyeshadow Looks

I used only this palette to create these looks except for a cream eyeshadow that I used to set my primer. I will go in the order of the swatches on my hand, left to right and top to bottom. You can click on each picture to see it better. I’ve also started including close ups of the eye look because I think that will be more helpful. I was having camera issues when I took some of these pictures so that is why some are, unfortunately, a little blurry.

As with a few of these looks, I have mixed feelings about this one. It was my first time EVER trying a spotlight halo eye look and I actually love the way it turned out but the dark green, San, was just very hard to manage.

  1. I blended Tutsi above my natural crease, almost to my brow bone.
  2. I then took San and blended it all into my crease and up into Tutsi.
  3. I placed Kuba on the innermost and outermost part of my lid.
  4. I then used my eyeshadow primer to create a wet base in the center of my lid, my eyes are very hooded so it did transfer to my crease. I then placed Koro on top of the wet base. I also used Koro in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  5. On my lower lash line, I used a black liner and then smudged San underneath the liner. I softened the edges of San with Tutsi and made sure my lower lash line connected with the eyeshadow on my eyelids to create a very blown out look.

Since I did a monochromatic green look, I HAD to do a monochromatic orange look. I really like the way this one turned out and it was much easier to blend than any of the green looks.

  1. I blended Oromo above my natural crease, almost to my brow bone, and all the way into my crease.
  2. I then used Kuria all over my lid and slightly blended up into Oromo.
  3. I used Chaga in the middle of my lid.
  4. I gently tapped Koro on top of Chaga and I used Koro in my inner corner.
  5. I lined my lower lash line with Ashanti and then used a black liner along with it. I then smudged Oromo underneath that and connected it with the eyeshadow on my eyelids to create another blown out look.

I apologize for the lighting and blurriness in these pictures. These were taken when I was having the worst of my camera issues. I did like the way this look turned out.

  1. I blended Ashanti above my natural crease, almost to my brow bone.
  2. I blended San up into Ashanti and all through my crease.
  3. I placed Kuba from the outermost part of my lid to around the center.
  4. I then placed Chaga from the innermost part of my lid to the center.
  5. I used Koro in my inner corner.
  6. I smudged under my eyes with San.

I’m honestly not sure if I love or hate this look, lol. I LOVE the way the lid turned out but the crease… not so much. I went from a deep shade in the crease to lighter shades on the lid, which is something I typically don’t do. I also didn’t blend the deep shade in my crease much at all, another thing I typically don’t do. I did try to blend the crease more than it is but as I’ve mentioned, the shade San is very hard to blend.

  1. I placed San above my natural crease. I brought it down closer to my nose and did not blend it into my crease at all.
  2. I blended Tutsi all in my crease and up into San.
  3. I placed Massai on the innermost and outermost parts of my lid.
  4. I then used my eyeshadow primer to create a wet base in the center of my lid, my eyes are very hooded so it did transfer to my crease. I then placed Koro on top of the wet base. I also used Koro in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  5. I lined my lower lash line with San and smudged Tutsi underneath it.

Overall, I like this palette and I’m glad I bought it but it’s more of a supplemental palette for me. I don’t think it’s the easiest palette to create complete looks with using it alone. It’s also not the easiest palette to use in general and I think beginners will struggle with it. I recommend it only if you love this color story and don’t mind working with it. I’d love to know what you think about The Tribe Palette and my review! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
