Juvia’s Place The Warrior | Swatch Stories #1

A new palette each month. New look inspo every week.

As a true makeup junkie, it is very easy to neglect makeup that I already own in favor of what’s new. This year, to get more use from my existing collection, I have decided to start a new series: Swatch Stories. Using one palette per month, I will do weekly posts of a different color combination.

This month’s palette is The Warrior by Juvia’s Place. I chose this palette because it is easy to underestimate the versatility of a neutral palette.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance| Swatch Stories #1

A different palette every month. A new color combo every week.

As a true makeup junkie, it is very easy to neglect makeup that I already own in favor of what’s new. This year, to make sure I use what I have and discover new ways to use old favorites, I have decided to start a new series: Swatch Stories. Using one palette per month, I will do weekly posts of a different color combination. This idea is inspired by the color combinations posted on Instagram by @temptalia.

To kick off the series I wanted to use a palette I have completely changed my mind about.  As mentioned in my Don’t Fall into the Trap post, I seriously regretted buying the ABH Modern Renaissance palette. However, towards the end of 2018, I decided to give it another shot. I’m so glad I did, because this palette has become my everyday go-to choice.

The first combination I am featuring is my usual look that I do when I don’t want to have to think about it.

Colors used (L-R): Red Ochre, Antique Bronze, Warm Taupe, Vermeer

Another BH Cosmetics x YouTuber collaboration palette review

Did they nail it again? Another BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palette review with swatches.

Happy Hump Day! For this Mid-week mini, I am staying with BH Cosmetics to give you a review of one of their other YouTube influencer collaboration palettes. This one is with Bubz Beauty and is an eyeshadow (only) palette.

I got this palette for free when purchasing some other items. BH Cosmetics frequently has sales, which sometimes include a free eyeshadow palette with purchases over $50. Crazy right?

So here are my thoughts on this one:

Packaging: The packaging is a very pretty light pink with a rose gold lace design. There is a mirror- which is nice. I also think the inscription “Be whatever you want to be” above the mirror is a thoughtful touch. There are no negatives in this category.

BkZczx1VQi6knCjNEvfiVAfullsizeoutput_1ac6

Colors: This is another palette of neutrals. The problem I have with this palette is that a number of the colors either do no show up on me at all, or require serious work to be seen. I’m not impressed.

Tw+vpc81TgqlRiz15sWEKQfullsizeoutput_1acbfullsizeoutput_1ad3

Wear: Unfortunately, the formula in these shadows is not nearly the same quality as those in the It’s My Raye Raye palette. Some of them, such as Inspired, are really patchy and hard to blend. Others are lacking in pigment and take a lot to build up—such as Confident. It is possible to create really pretty looks, such as the one below, with this palette, but it takes some work. Once they are on, I do think these shadows last a decent amount of time.

fullsizeoutput_1ae8fullsizeoutput_1ad6

Overall thoughts: Pass. I will use this palette since I have it, but unfortunately I would not recommend spending any money on it. It just takes too much to make it work.

Well, BH Cosmetics has one amazing palette and one pass. Have you guys tried any of their other products? If so, do you have any suggestions for me? I’d love to hear them in the comments below.

Thanks for reading!
