I fell in love with Juvia’s Place about a year and a half ago. Above all, Juvia’s Place is known for using bright vivid shades, and combining both neutral and colorful shades, in their pallets. (Click Here to Read more about Juvia’s Palettes). Interestingly , Juvias palettes offer us more than just beautiful eyeshadow. Above all, they tell us a story. However, this story is told through the Beauty that comes from these palettes. Significantly, these eyeshadow and blush palettes give us the taste and feel of Africa, the continent and the culture. The Saharan 11 Eyeshadow Palette is the newest “story” on the continent and in the beauty world.
In short, The New Sahara 11 Eyeshadow Palette tells the story of colors, spices, herbs, and cities with rich patterns that are very much a part of Morocco. Recently, I visited Morocco, and spent time in Marrakesh and Fez. There, I fell madly in love with the colors, the spices,and herbs, the smells and the tastes in the marketplaces. Also, I loved the Moroccan tiled patterns all over their cities, and their colorful patterned, woven cloth. With this in mind, I fell in love with this Moroccan – inspired Palette. It’s as hot and spicy as the country itself. (Click here for link to the palette ($21.50)

Specifically, Juvia’s The Sahara 11 Palette was inspired by the sites and sounds of Morocco. Interestingly, the beautiful thing about this palette, (and all of Juvia’s palettes) is that we have the opportunity to “feel” Morocco, not through a book, a movie, a magazine, or the internet. Amazingly, we can feel Morocco through Beauty. Moreover, the rich, vibrant shades of Morocca are the essential shades of The Sahara 11. These shades are extremely wearable. Also, I love the mixture of color with the neutrals in this palette. I really cannot choose favorites in this palette. Last, all of Juvia’s palettes are comparable to the highest end brands, yet they sell for less than half the price.
All you need is a little imagination, and when you look at the colors in this palette, they will take you away to the exotic land of Morocco! Let me know if you need advice on where to apply the colors. Tell me what you think of Juvia’s Newest Palette in the comments below.
