First there is Juvia’s Warrior Eye Shadow Palette. In particular, the all woman warrior regiment of the Dahomey African Women were the inspiration for this palette. First of all, the palette is edgier than some of the other Juvia’s palettes. In addition, it consists of gold, bronze, and brown eye shadow shades. Furthermore, the shades come in foiled and matte finishes. Recently launched is the newest Juvia’s Warrior 11 Eye Shadow Palette. Again the inspiration for this palette came from the fearless Dahomey Amazon Warrior regiment. One reason for this is they decapitated the heads of their captured enemies. The Warrior 11 Eye Shadow Palette is the first Juvia’s Palette that has all matte shadows.
Moreover, the palette has both cool and warm tones. In addition, there are 9 shadow in the palette. Also, the tones are autumnal hues, which remind me of sunset colors. Above all, I’m loving that the palette is a neutral eye shadow palette. Therefore, it is perfect for daytime looks.
You can find the New Juvia’s Warrior 11 Eye Shadow Palette on the Juvia’s Place Website. It retails for $20. However, for a limited time you can purchase it on sale for $13.50.
Juvia’s Warrior 11 Eye Shadow Palette Packaging
To begin with, Juvia’s Compacts always have the most beautiful artwork on the front of their palettes.
In this case, the front is a beautiful picture of a Fierce Dahomey Amazon Woman Warrior. Inside the palette, on one side is the fierce woman warrior, and on the other side are the 9 matte eye shadows. Furthermore, the actual palette is much larger than other 9 shadow palettes on the market.
On reason for this is, the eye shadow pan size is almost double the size of most eye shadow pans. And, the palette is sturdy cardboard. Finally, the only thing the palette is missing is a mirror. For one thing, a mirror would make the palette more travel worthy. Also, a mirror would make it easier to put your eye shadows on, without having to look for another mirror!
Juvia’s Warrior 11 Eye Shadow Palette Formula
I am in love with Juvia’s eye shadows. The reason for this is, they are luxury formulas, for a lot less money. Above all, good matte formula’s are hard to come by. Usually they are chalky. Also, they can be gritty. And, they can have a lot of kickback, and fallout. However, Juvia’s Place has circumvented these issues and created a first class, A+ formula for their matte shades. First, the texture is smooth and buttery. All of the shades glide on. As a result, they are easy to apply. In fact, the shades are smooth enough to apply with your fingertips. Hey, you can also blend the shades with your fingertips.
In addition, the matte shadows have little, if any, fallout or kickback. They are opaque, vivid, bold shades because they are made with extreme pigments. Finally, the colors hold up for at least 8 hours. I had to use my Clarisonic. with makeup remover, two times to remove all of the shadow.
Juvia’s Warrior 11 Eye Shadow Palette Shades
This is Juvia’s first all matte eye shadow palette. There are 9 matte shades.
Row 1 Across (Top Row)
To begin with YODIT is a soft camel shade. Right now camel is a hot color. For example Natasha Denona has a Camel Eye Shadow Palette. My first Bare Minerals eye shadow shade was camel. Hence, camel is a great neutral shade. I wear camel on my eye lids, Also, I use camel as a transition shade in my crease. You can also line your lower lash line with camel.
Next, KUFURU is a deep brown with red tones in it. This shade is beautiful in your crease. Also, it looks great in the outer corners of your eyes. Moreover, I love to do a smokey eye with KUFURU. Additionally, use it to line your upper and lower lashes.
Last, WALZANA is a charcoal grey shade. First, use it on the outer part of your eye lid, and smoke it out. Also, use it on your outer corner. Then, line your upper and lower lashes with it. In addition, you can use it in your crease.
Row 2 Across (Middle Row)
First, DAURA is a peachy-orange shade. Hence, it reminds me of a creamsicle ice pop. I would love this shadSHAWATAae on my eye lids. Also, I would wear it above the transition shade , under my eyebrow. You can use it as an eye liner. Above all, these shadows are creamy so I would wear this as a blush. It is a gorgeous blush shade.
Next, ZAMA is a deep, burnt orange shade. If you like orange, wear it on your eye lids, or as an eye liner. However, I love burnt orange as a blush.
Last, JAMATA is a brownish wine shade. It reminds me of velvet. I love it as an eye lid shade. Also, it can be worn in your crease. And, you can wear it in the outer corners of your eyes. Additionally, wear JAMATA to line your upper and lower lash lines.

Then, KANA, is a light nude-beige shade. First, wear it on you eye lids. You can wear it as a base shade. If you are really fair, wear it as a crease shade. I would wear this in the hollows of my cheeks as a contour shade.
Finally, ZAZ is a translucent white shade. It looks great in the inner corners of your eyes. Also, use it on your brow bones. Next, you can get creative and use it to brighten your under eye area. Above all, use ZAZ to lighten some of the darker shades. Mix ZAZ with another color to make it lighter.
Juvia’s Warrior 11 Eye Shadow Palette Last But Not Least……
Juvia’s mattes are the softest, smoothest, and silkiest matte shades I’ve ever worn. And, this includes the matte shades from Tom Ford, Natasha Denona, and Pat McGrath, (the big guns!) The only difference is, Juvia’s shades are a fraction of the price. Also, the shades are double the size of most of the other shades. The quality of a Juvia’s Place Palette is right up their with the big guns. Furthermore, these eye shadows can be worn as blush, under eye highlighter, and contour shades. I love that it is a neutral palette that is made to be used for daytime, as well as nighttime looks.
I’d love to hear what you think of Juvia’s eye shadows. Do you love their texture? Their pigments? Their shades. One other thing I love is the history that inspires the Juvia Palettes. I’ve learned more African History with my Juvia eye shadows than I ever learned in school, and I was a history major!!!!! Please leave me your comments in the comment section below.
