Juvia's Place - The Magic Eyeshadow Palette 2017 - Review & Swatches - Avis et Revue

The Magic Palette ? Yet another gem created by Juvia's Place. This BoB (Black-owned Brand) releases more outstanding makeup by the minute, it seems - each and every one of their new palettes has more beautiful colors inside, duochrome, matte, metallic and above all an intense pigmentation on a black skin - you should see them on a fair skin !

This one I've waited for for a long time - or so it seems to me. I think Juvia's Place released it end of May (or maybe beginning of June ?) but even though I love playing with fire, I didn't buy it off the official website because I was afraid of custom fees (yeah, cause I also would have gotten the two Saharan blush palettes !).
It became available after like another month on Ckarlysbeauty and I had to wait for payday - and the palette to become yet again available - to get it #normalpeopletrouble :P But the wait is now over. I ordered it on July 11, got it on the 13 and started playing with it as soon as the pics for the blog were done.

First impressions ? This palette is huge (it's exactly the size of the Masquerade palette I should review really soon... ;)) and it reminds me of a painter palette, the eyeshadows are really big too, the colors and the palette in general are beautiful. It did hurt to have to wait till all the pics were shot and checked out so I could swatch all these delicious-looking eyeshadows. And once I was able to, I was so satisfied ! The eyeshadows are really creamy - even the matte ones - even though most of the mattes (like 4 out of 6) are a bit on the drier side, almost like normal mattes.

The eyeshadows are really longlasting without a primer but way longer lasting with one underneath, especially since it's so hot in Paris these days - I'd rather use my Neve Cosmetics primer/mixing medium with these metallic shades that resemble pressed pigment a lot. The colors really pop when they're on the eyes, that's what I like. Some colors I love more than others like the vivid golden yellow Nubia, the rose gold Zuba, the blueish purple Faso that reminds me of my NYX Cosmetics Lip Of the Day lipliner in Kinetic and the beautiful blue mixed with antique gold Yara - among others. Before I bought this palette, I thought I'd have a crush on the cool-toned shades of this palette and I was right but there are also some shades from the top rows which are really extraordinary... what we're seeing is true beauty here.

When I use this palette, seeing as the eyeshadows are almost creamy, there's some fallout - but just a bit. I'll just tap my brush before I apply the eyeshadows and then I'm good to go. The flesh-colored eyeshadow is just perfect for me to unify the color of my eyelids. And wow, look at those mattes... Every time I open one of my Juvia's Place palettes, I feel like depotting all the mattes and put them together in a Z Palette, same thing goes with the shimmery and metallic shades... I think this palette will allow me to create plenty of looks with several cool-toned eyeshadows together or several warm-toned eyeshadows together ; the Saharan and Nubian 2 palettes did allow me to do so but not as much in my opinion.

This Magic Palette is a success - a wonderful packaging, high-quality eyeshadows and various amazing colors : I understand why it's so often out of stock. Do you own any of the Juvia's Place palettes ? What do you think of them ? Let's meet again tomorrow for a makeup look based on this palette as well as the wonderful Matte Me Up liquid lip paint by Barry M and the sublime Master Highlight Palette by Primark ! In the meantime, do subscribe to my blog newsletter so you don't miss out on any more reviews and makeup looks ! ;)
