Juvia’s Place | Saharan Eyeshadow Palette

Hi Beauties!

If you haven’t heard of Juvia’s Place, then you are in for a real treat! The owner, Chichi Eburu, is a Nigeria-born wife and mother of two who launched her cosmetics company roughly 4 years ago. Currently, they sell super vibrant and pigmented eyeshadow palettes, highlighters, blushes, lipstick and brushes!

I recently picked up three of the Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palettes, so today’s post is going to focus on the Saharan Palette! I will be sharing swatches, details on all the shades and my first impressions of this palette.

Let’s get into it!


The Saharan palette contains 12 super vibrant shades that include matte, shimmery and satin finishes. You can buy these directly from the Juvia’s Place website for $20 USD (approx. $28 AUD), however, I purchased mine from the Black Swallow website for $54 (I got free shipping as I spent over $100 and used the oh so handy Afterpay method of payment).

“A Lively Saharan

Inspired by the vibrancy and vivaciousness of the Wodabee Festivities in the Fulani culture of Western Africa. Filled with elaborate and flamboyant makeup.

The Saharan eye shadow palette is endowed with pops of colors, earthy hues and golds that emulate a true Saharan.”

Saharan Palette Shades (top to bottom): Sokoto, Wodaabe, Bororo, Kia, Zoya, Iman, Jamila, Senegal, Chad, Katsina, Lulu, Fula

Sokoto – matte bright red toned orange

Wodaabe – metallic green gold

Bororo – metallic deep red/cranberry

Kia –  blackened metallic teal

Zoya – pale peachy gold with pink undertones and a satin finish

Iman – pure pearly white metallic

Jamila – dark matte brick red

Senegal – metallic bronze

Chad – matte black

Katsina – soft matte tan

Lulu – pale salmon pink with peach undertones and a satin finish

Fula – medium pink/cranberry metallic

The pigmentation of these eyeshadows is amazing. They are super creamy and smooth to the touch and very easy to work with! I can’t wait to play with it more. The mix of bold metallics and stunning neutrals is exactly what Juvia’s Place is all about. The only con that I found with this palette in my first impressions of it is that I don’t really see how I cam create heaps of different looks using ONLY this palette. Yes, it does have lots of vibrant and amazing shades, but I only like using matte shades in my crease, so the fact that this palette only has 1 brown transition shade, two reddy crease shades and a black, I struggle to come up with ways to only use this palette to create different looks. In saying that, it doesn’t bother me too much that I would have to reach for another palette, I just know this isn’t a palette that would be packed into my travel makeup kit.

Have you tried any Juvia’s Place palettes? What other Juvia’s Place palettes would you recommend I try? Leave me a comment and let me know! 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!
