The Saharan Palette Review

20170730_081738

I have seen so many reviews about these palettes online over the past year. It seems that every beauty blogger has at least one palette from Juvia’s Place. Juvia’s Place recently launched on Beauty Bay in the UK which really excited me. These are supposed to be some of the most pigmented, blendable shadows on the market.

And you guys know how much I love a good eyeshadow……

This palette retails at Β£28.50, just like the other two palettes. I chose this one because I love warm toned eyeshadows, and the shade Sokoto just sang to me through the web link. I needed this in my life! The other palettes did look very similar to other neutral palettes in my collection. I might get them one day, but today is not that day.

The packaging for this palette is very compact and made of carboard, so it’s ideal for travelling, although it may bend easily. However if this is stored correctly, that shouldn’t be a problem. You don’t get a mirror in here, which I miss. Although I do my makeup at my dressing table, if I’m away from home I tend to use the mirror in my eyeshadow palette. Β It’s a small thing, but I do like a mirror.

The shadows themselves look gorgeous in the pan. You get four matte shades and eight shimmers. All the shades here are what you need to create a full look, although it doesn’t have a bone shade, which is what I tend to use to set my eye primer.

So they look amazing in the pan… but how do they swatch and apply?

Believe all the hype about this palette. They swatch beautifully. Each swatch was one dip of my finger in the pans and a single swipe. Oh. My. God! These are very richly pigmented and didn’t give any fallout and kickback from the pans. I actually couldn’t wait to do my makeup and apply some of the shades to my eyes.

As it was a work day, I did go for more of the neutral tones. I used Katsina, Sokoto and Jamila in my crease and lower lash line. I then packed the shade Lulu in the inner portion of my lid and joined it up with the shade Bororo. On my lower lashes I applied the shade Senegal, and used a tiny amount of Zoya in my inner corner. To smoke out my upper lashes I then used the shade Chad. Basically I used almost every shade didn’t I?

I found that that palette does not give any fallout which is amazing considering how pigmented the shades are. I have never known that with such shimmery shadows before.

Overall I am really impressed with this palette. The shades are beautiful and you get such amazing quality for a relatively cheap price point. I will eventually buy more of these palettes but for now, I am content to show The Saharan some love.

What have been your thoughts on these palettes if you have tried them?

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.
