Juvia's Place Afrique Eyeshadow Palette Review

by - February 24, 2019

Hey Guys!

It's me again! But as you know, this will only be a brief return because I'm still in the thick of my college studies. Today I wanted to review a palette I got as a Christmas present last year and its one that I've had my eye on for a while!

If you're a beauty junkie like me and you love nothing more than watching makeup tuts, you'll probably recognize this palette I'm talking about today. It's called the Afrique palette by Juvia's Place and I can't wait to tell you more about it!

First off, I want to point out that many in the beauty community will tell you how unreliable swatches are and while that may true for the blendability, I do think swatches are great for see how the pigment looks with your skin tone. That aside, these swatches did look "patchy" with certain pigments, but when I went to apply with a brush on my lids, I found the formula to be much more forgiving.

The shades by "the numbers":

1. Cote d'Ivoire
2. Dakar
3. Niger
4. Togo
5. Bintou
6. Cotonou
7. Aya
8. Cameroon
9. Angelique
10. Kisi
11. Fifi
12. Kofi

When working with these shades I noticed how pigmented and blendable they are. Nothing annoys me more than when an eyeshadow goes onto the eye patchy, but with this, you don't have that. I chose this particular palette because the shade range is so versatile so you could carry it with you anywhere and do just about any look! What really impressed me the most with this eyeshadow palette is the price point. It's super affordable, and if you know me, that's a major +! 

For future purchases (yes I will be purchasing more from them), I really have my eyes on the warrior 1 & 2 palettes and the zulu palette. If I can't perfect an eye look to the point where I'm comfortable posting, then I will for sure post to give you a more in-depth review.

Which shades do you love the most out of this palette, and what kind of shades do you normally gravitate to?
