Juvia’s Place is an indie cosmetics brand that creates vibrant, colorful eye shadow and blush shades. And, the inspiration came from Africa for the Juvia’s eye shadow and blush palettes. Specifically, what inspires the colorful , intense hues of Juvia’s palette, are the intense, vibrant colors of various African tribes and their seasonal festivals. As a result,, the new Juvia’s Place Festival Collection includes an eye shadow palette with nine shades, and two liquid lipsticks. In fact, this is the first time Juvia’s Place created matte liquid Lipsticks. (take a peak at the eye shadow palette ($21), and the liquid lipsticks($19 set) ($12 Each) here.)
Other eye shadow palettes from Juvia are The Saharan 11, and The Magic. I am a huge fan of these palettes. First, the colors and their finishes are gorgeous. Next, the shadows feel soft, and buttery. And, rich pigments create the vibrant shadows. Last, the prices are too good to be true! So let’s get started.
Juvia’s Place Festival Collection Packaging
Festival Eye Shadow Palette
The vibrant orange-background of compact is eye catching. So is the tribal picture of a man and woman in their festival attire.
The compact is cardboard. It is thick and sturdy. To open the compact, simply lift up the lid.
The same picture on the cover of the palette, is on the underside as well. Instead of the same picture twice, I would have loved a mirror. But, I can’t complain. The background of the eye shadow pans is shiny and jet black. Hence, the nine colorful shadows pop! Additionally, the nine shadows are in their own pans. The pans are extra-large!
Festival Liquid Lipstick
The Liquid Lipstick comes in a rectangular version of the eye palette box. It has an orange mirrorED vibe In addition, it has the same festival tribal picture of a man and woman. They are both in festival attire.
The tube is that of a lip gloss tube.
Also, it has a slightly bent, flocked , footed applicator.

Juvia’s Place Festival Collection Shades
Juvia’s Place Festival Collection Festival Eye Shadow Palette Matte Finish
Izafa us a deep, pigmented blue-red. Also it is a bright red shade. And, it has a matte finish.
I recommend using this shade as part of your outer crease color. Or, be daring and line your upper and lower lash-lines with Izafa.
Ofala is a burnt-orange shade. It has a matte finish.
First, Ofala looks brighter in the pan than it does on your skin. Actually, it is really pretty, either as a shadow, crease color, or to line your lash lines. However, I would also use it as a blush, or on my lips.
Mmanwu looks tangerine-orange in the pan. However, it is a more subtle , peach shade on the skin. Therefore, I love it on the eye lids.Also, wear it in your crease!
Iri Ji looks neon pink in the pan. However, it is a buildable pink shade. Therefore, it builds from light to intense. I love this shade on the eye lids, in the crease, and in the upper crease of the outer eye edge. Moreover, I love this shade as a blush, or lip shade.
Oro looks like yellow mustard in the pan. However, it is more of a butterscotch color on the skin. First of all,. this shade isn’t as funky as you think. Especially now, when yellow shades are in, I would wear this on my eye lids. Or mixed with Odogwu, it becomes a foiled-finished, deep golden shade. This looks great as a highlighter ANYWHERE!
Juvia’s Place Festival Collection Festival Eye Shadow Palette Shimmer Finish
Uli looks like the shimmering full moon. It is an amazing highlighter for the cheeks, and eyes. Also, it would look great on your eye lids. Last, I love it over your lipstick to give your lips a pop!
Keleke is a satiny gunmetal shimmer. I recommend wearing it to create a smoky eye. Also, use it as a crease color. Furthermore, you can use it as a liner. Hence, line your upper and lower lash lines with it.
Aba is a gorgeous shade of blue turquoise that has a shimmery, satin finish. This is a great shade on your eyelids. Also, I love this in the summer to line my eyes. When I tried the shade on my eye lids, I carried the color up to include the crease.
Odogwu is a gold shade of shimmer that has a foiled finish. Another great highlighter, I would use it on the cheeks, and eyes. I would also wear this as a shadow for a metallic eye.
Juvia’s Place Festival Collection Festival Liquid Lipstick
Soil is a matte terracotta color. I purchased soil because the second shade just wasn’t for me!
Unfortunately, I did not purchase Dudu. However, it is an almost black shade with a hint of brown in it.
