I recently bought the Warrior Palette by Juvia’s Place and after using that palette, I immediately bought the Nubian Palette. I felt in love with the Warrior palette and I had to try the Nubian Palette as well. So today I’ll be reviewing Juvia’s Place The Nubian Palette. 

Juvia's Place The Nubian Palette | Review

Both the Warrior palette and the Nubian palette Retail for $20. The Warrior palette contains 9 huge pans and the Nubian palette contains 12 smaller pans. Even though the pans are smaller, you still get a decent amount of product. Both the palettes contain very neutral shades since that’s my typical go to, but Juvia’s Place also offers very colorful palettes. There’s something for everyone, which I think is great!

I can stare at this palette for years, I think it’s so pretty! The colors are everything and the metallics are my faves. However, you can easily make a matte look with this palette as well if you’re not feeling metallics. It’s possible to go for a subtle work-day look but very easy to darken it up a bit and add some metallics to go straight to a party. Very nice!

Shade description

The shades don’t have names but I’ll describe them. From left to right and starting with the top row: 

  • Shade 1: iridescent pink
  • Shade 2: matte tan
  • Shade 3: nude brown
  • Shade 4: shimmery champagne
  • Shade 5: shimmery light gold with pink undertone 
  • Shade 6: metallic light gold
  • Shade 7: goldish auburn shimmer
  • Shade 8: metallic bronze gold
  • Shade 9: metallic dark auburn
  • Shade 10: matte brown
  • Shade 11: metallic dark brown
  • Shade 12: matte ebony brown

After swatching, I came to the conclusion I forgot to swatch shade 6, so that’s why it’s swatched after shade 12. The first row starts at the right of my arm. 

These shades you guys… they swatch like butter! They’re so pigmented, so easy to apply, so easy to blend. I’m in love! My expectations were very high after the Warrior palette, which I love so much. But Juvia’s Place did it again! Even though I’m kinda afraid of bright colors, I really want to try The Zulu or The Douce palette to see how pigmented the bright colors are. 

For now, I can only tell you guys I love both the Nubian and the Warrior palette so much and I’m very shocked about the amazing pigment the palettes have. Moreover, they aren’t even expensive! And Juvia’s Place has some good sales once in a while where you can get the palettes for discounted prices. If you haven’t tried Juvia’s Place and you’re looking for some easy, blendable and pigmented palettes, please check them out! 

Moreover, I have to share their vision. 


Africa is not only the birthplace of humanity, it’s the birthplace of all beauty. Juvia’s Place was created to celebrate the rebels, rulers and queens of the African kingdoms of long ago, who emulated and honored beauty through their soulful and innovative techniques that the top beauty gurus still use today. Inspired by the queens before us, Juvia’s Place offers the richest, most vibrantly-pigmented essentials for the eyes, face and lips to take you from the office, to the Caribbean islands, and everywhere inbetween!

I love this! And I love how they have shades for all different skin tones.

Hope to see you next time loves,
