I fell in Love with Juvia’s Place after trying out the Zulu palette as my first ever Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palette. Now, I want them all!
But I can only afford that much at the time, so I just have to collect them one by one. But my next pick after Zulu obviously had to be The Magic Palette because of the large selection of very interesting shades.
The packaging is as always very funky and different. And the inside of the palette alone makes it deserve it’s name to the fullest.
The quality is pretty consistent. The mattes are pigmented, and easy to blend. A bit stiffer than many formulas that we are familiar with from for example Lorac or Anastasia, but that does not have to be a bad thing. They don’t give that much kick-back, and maybe you have to put that brush into the palette one extra time, but that is completely fine because the shades can easily be built up.
The metallics are quite dense, so I feel I have to use a little bit more pressure when picking it up with a brush than I do with many other shades. However, they are pigmented as a dream and smooooth as butter.
The two first rows have a bunch of warm red and orange tones with pink, rose gold and gold metallics. Some really pretty everyday looks can be made with these. Or you can rock a deep purple eye with glitter as an everyday look too if that’s what floats your boat. I just mean that these are the kind of shades I would be happy to reach for on a everyday-at-work basis.
The 3rd and 4th row are what my dreams are made of. The right bottom shade and left bottom shade looks almost black, but they are just such beautiful bright but deep purple and teal shades. These are the ones that surprised me the most because I expected a bit more boring shades.
Metallic greens like this also just happen to be what my green dreams are made of. They are perfection, and I can’t count how many times I picked up this palette just to swatch one of those shades.
If you don’t know Juvia’s Place pan size you are in for a treat! They are huge! And since these shadows are packed with pigment they will last you a lifetime. If I ever see a project panner working on this and succeeding I would be beyond impressed. In other words; you get a lot of product for your money.
The pan size is very similar to the Sugarpill eyeshadows if you know them. They are 4 g each, compared to a regular pan shadow that is 1.5 g (MakeupGeek, MAC etc).
I am sorry to sound biased, but to me this palette can do no wrong. I am not biased by the way, I bought this palette myself. I just love everything about it. The shades, the quality, the fun and quirky packaging. This is just up my alley!
Did you try this as well? Would love to know what you think about this too!
