Juvia’s Place is a black owned beauty brand catering specifically to brown skinned beauties. Created by Nigerian born wife and mother, Chichi Eburu, the brand launched a little more than two years ago. However, Juvia’s Place has recently become extremely popular due to rave reviews on social media and in the blogosphere. It seems like everyone and their mama is talking about the super pigmented eyeshadow palettes featuring artwork of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti. So of course I was super excited to receive the Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette as a birthday gift. My cousin Mo always gets me the good stuff.
The Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette was inspired by the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, known for her outstanding beauty, strength and spirituality. The palette features 12 highly pigmented eyeshadows- 4 matte shades and 8 metallic. The pans are rather large, about the same size as a Make Up For Ever single eyeshadow. That’s about double the size of a standard eyeshadow.
The eyeshadows are EXTREMELY pigmented, smooth and buttery. Even the matte shades. They almost feel creamy.
Morocco (matte), Madagascar (matte), Sheba (metallic), Yaa (metallic)
Jezebel (matte), Zuri (metallic), Cleopatra (metallic), Nefertiti (metallic)
Nairobi (metallic), Leyla (metallic), Kenya (matte), Egypt (metallic)
The Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette is on point. In addition to having amazing pigmentation, the eyeshadow colors are gorgeous. Every single shade is brown girl friendly and will look great on any complexion. The palette is also very versatile. As a result, a variety of looks can be created- from nude, to smokey, to fun and colorful. The Nubian 2 palette is rather inexpensive at $30. Which is not nearly as much as palettes with similar or the same quality from bigger brands. The eyeshadow pans from other brands aren’t as large either. Therefore, I’d highly suggest that you snatch up The Nubian 2 Palette while you still can. I think I need the other two Juvia’s palettes in my life ASAP!
