Hey Brown Girl!
Today I am bring you a comparison of the Juvia's Place Saharan Blush Palettes. Volume (vol) 1 and Vol 2 are both cased in the signature Juvia's Place palette design with gorgeous culture-rich imagery. Both palettes come with six shades and retail for $18 USD.
Now although each palette comes with six pans, they are LARGE sized pans. Not to mention, the overall pigmentation is so on point that you really don't need a lot of product. Imagine how long these beauties will last! Below are swatches of each palette with VOL 1 on the left and VOL 2 on the right.
The Color Scheme
The overall color palette of VOL 1 is darker, deeper, orange and red based colors.
ABBY is a nice rich brown with a purple undertone. On us brown girls this would be a beautiful contour shade on the face or eyes.
TOBY is a warm orange shade.
ZANE is a beautiful purple color with a pink undertone.
LILA is a stunning copper shade that screams royalty. Can we say highlight perfection?
ZARA is a bold gold highlight shade. We already know GOLD is for the goddesses so we brown girls rock it well.
The overall color scheme of VOL 2 is lighter, softer, pink, peach and orange based colors. This palette was designed for light and fair skin tones, but I am going to share how us brown girls can rock it too!
LEENA is a bright pink shade. It reminds me of the Nicki Minaj barbie pink. Brown girls can gracefully rock this as a lid shade.
ZOBA is a shimmery light pink color. SO GORGEOUS! It would look amazing as an inner eye color, and most shades of brown can easily rock this as a highlight in more GLAM looks.
BEE is a pinkish purple blush that is less vibrant than Zane. It looks a little ashy as a blush on deeper skin tones, but could definitely be used as an eyeshadow or will be bomb mixed with TAU.
TAU is a gorgeous peach shade more on the orange side. This color looks so beautiful on brown skin tones. It can definitely be rocked as a blush or eyeshadow.
SOLA is an amazing shimmer pink with a mix of purple and orange. I LOVE this color! SO flattering and beautiful. Us brown girls can get away with rocking this as a blush color as well.
YARA is a nice Taupe shade. It cannot be used to contour for deeper brown skin tones, but can be used as a transition shade on the lids. It is perfect for transitioning into color.
Clearly, the Saharan Blush Palette VOL 1 was created for deeper skin tones and it is very flattering as you can see. The dope thing about these blush palettes is that they can be used for WAY more than blush. ANYONE can use them on the eyes in combination with their makeup collection. At $18 a palette you really can't loose.
Although this palette is catered toward lighter skin tones, us brown girls could definitely get use out of ZOBA, TAU, and SOLA. These three look so pretty and I will definitely be putting them to use.
This isn't an official review, just an initial comparison.. I'll be back in a few weeks (after testing and playing in these beauties) and give you guys a complete run down of my Juvia's Place experience by reviewing each palette individually.
