This one have been hanging around in my drawers for quite some time. Over a year and a half to be exact. But I have been using it quite frequently the last couple of months and I felt like writing a review for you. I do think that it’s a good thing to take a deep dive into your collection sometimes to find something to review. I really don’t think people who blogs or does YouTube and write reviews should feel forced to pick up only the new stuff to review. As makeup lovers we often have plenty of stuff laying around in our drawers, and the best thing is that these are products we often know very well, which makes them excellent review items. As long as they are not discontinued off course. If you are also a creator I challenge you; Next time you need to review something, open your drawers and have a look instead of heading over to your closest makeup store. I am sure we all have plenty of stuff laying around that deserves some attention.
But now maybe we should stop wasting time rambling and get on with the review? (I like to write, I can’t help it!).
The blush palette has a similar appearance as the eyeshadow palettes with those fancy funky ladies on the cover. The packaging is their standard cardboard with no mirror. It feels sturdy and are quite slim and easy to store. Inside you get a selection of 6 different shades.
The reason why I have been using these blushes more lately is because I got a bit of a tan this summer and I maintained it with self-tanner through fall. Many of these shades are too dark for me during winter, but during summer they are quite nice. The Vol.I blush palette I find to be too dark for me, so I did not pick it up, but I really like that they have an option for darker skin as well. I would however like to see one for fair skin too. I mean, there is so many makeup options for fair skin, and way to little for dark skin, so no need to complain really, but I think a third palette would be a fantastic addition! Imagine the Vol.I for darker skintones, Vol.II for medium skintones, and a Vol.III for light to fair skin tones! That would have been something! (We can dream right?).
The colors in this blush palette has a very nice variety!
Yara is a warm brown. Not the right color for me as a blush but it works really well as a warm bronzer if I have a bit of tan. It looks less orange on the skin than it does on the arm swatch, so I quite like it for the purpose.
Sola is a gorgeous dark rose gold with shimmer that would look just as amazing on the eyes as on the cheeks. This is too dark for me in winter, but it’s a beautiful summer time blush and I used it a lot lately.
Tau is a matte orange blush. This is actually so flattering on the skin, again this is too dark during winter but it’s a stunning warm matte blush for a bronzed summer look!
Bee is maybe the shade that works the least for me. I don’t feel it’s too dark for me during summer, I just feel it’s not the right tone. I can even make it work during winter with a super light hand, and if I really buff it out, but it’s just not my favorite anyways. This is the shade I get the least use out of. That being said there is nothing wrong with the quality and I bet this looks stunning on medium or even dark skin!
Zoba is my favorite. This one works all year for me, and is together with Leena the only two shades that are usable for me all year (I have light skin, but not fair). It’s pink with a golden sheen and looks amazing as a glowy blush!
The final shade, Leena, is a matte peach. This is just a great all year, all looks kind of blush. I often use this with a little bit of Zoba on top to give a very soft sheen. Perfect if you feel a bit pale and dull to brighten up the face.
The quality on these are great. They are quite pigmented though, but blend fairly easy, so with a light hand and a little bit of buffing they work really nicely. They don’t have any kickback in the pan so they seem fairly firmly pressed. Which means they are easy to control and they will last you for ever. I know I have used this palette quite a bit for the 1.5 years I’ve owned it and it barely shows any wear. So with Juvia’s Place reasonable pricing added to the equation you get a cheap, great quality palette that will last you almost forever. If that’s not a good deal I don’t know what is!
