Juvia’s Place The Festival Palette Review

Next palette in my line up for review from Juvia’s Place is The Festival palette, which has 9 shadows with large pans and costs $20 in total like most of their palettes. The tones are all supposed to be festival party inspired so they are daring and bold. I seriously love the range in the bold shades as you can make a large variety of looks. And yes, this palette isn’t for the faint of heart. And like other Juvia’s Place palettes they are made of sturdy cardboard and do not include a mirror.

I think at this point, I’m not going to comment on the formula in every single review considering I’ve already done five reviews on Juvia’s Place and they have all been the same. So quick summary: the metallics are like butter, the mattes are extremely pigmented without being patchy, and it all blends out seamlessly.

All of the shades well together, but there isn’t the best transition tone in the palette. However, you can make it work using Mmanwu. The mattes overall are warm tones while the shimmers/metallics are more neutral or the pop of blue tones. I was quite considered I wouldn’t be able to work with Aba as it’s the only blue tone. But after playing with it right away I had no issues with it. If you want to see how that turned out, check out the images below.

Shade Descriptions from Juvia’s Place

  • Izafa (matte carmine)
  • Uli (shimmer ice)

Final Thoughts

I had a lot of fun playing with this palette. Do I think you absolutely need this in your collection? No. Honestly you don’t need everything you see someone review. But if this palette is calling your name and you want something new to play with. This is a fun palette to create glamorous or bold looks with. Juvia’s Place has some of the best eyeshadow formulas on the market that I have tried to date.

I still have five palettes left to do reviews of from Juvia’s Place and I don’t know which one to test out next as they all look amazing. So look out for those in the future. And if you want to see my previous reviews, here is the list of them:

Love ya,

    This is a pretty palette! Do you ever find that Juvia’s Place shadows stain your skin? I swatched the Nubian 2 on my arm the other day and I could still see the pigment for the next two days. The graphic eyeliner you did looks so cool!

      Thank you so much! Yes, I do notice on occasion they cause staining as they are a vegan formula meaning they use dye instead of carmine, specifically dyes the FDA states is not safe for around the eye area as they may cause staining (FD&C Red 40 Al Lake, Blue 1 Al Lake, and Yellow 5 Al Lake). Typically those are supposed to come with a warning on the back about that but I don’t have the outer packaging anymore to check if it’s mentioned on that and the ingredients aren’t labeled on the actual palette itself.

        I knew that some brands use those dyes but I never realized why! ColourPop has put notices like that on some of their products and I was always confused as to why they would use the dye if they’re not approved for use around the eyes. But it makes sense if they want to keep their CF status. Thanks for sharing that with me!

        They can be cruelty free without being vegan (so using carmine) but most end up not using that ingredient since it’s crushed beetles. And no problem!
