The Warrior Eyeshadow Palette Claims
Before jumping into the Juvia’s Place Eyeshadow Palette Review, let’s examine the claims from the brand.
Juvia’s Place describes the Warrior Eyeshadow Palette as an edgy spin on the Nubian Palette. This palette is meant for bronzed goddesses.
The colors in this 9-pan palette are inspired by rich, earthy tones, as well as beautiful golds and bronze colors. The Warrior palette provides a golden glow that makes the eyes pop! Juvia’s Place claims these shadows will have long-lasting staying power on the eye.
Packaging & Price
As with all Juvia’s Place Eyeshadow Palettes, The Warrior Eyeshadow Palette comes in sturdy, cardboard packaging without a mirror. Intricate illustrations depicting glowing Nubian beauties decorate the cover of the palette.
Also, the Warrior Palette retails for $20.00, which is in-line with the brand’s other eyeshadow palette prices. However, the palette is frequently included in sales on the brand’s website.

The Warrior Palette Swatches
As always, swatches are not a perfect indicator of quality. However, they can provide clues to how a shadow performs in terms of pigmentation and the ability to blend. Please see the below finger swatches of The Warrior Palette on a bare arm.
Juvia’s Place The Warrior Palette Finger Swatches
If it isn’t apparent from the swatches, the shadows in the Warrior Palette are pigmented, high-impact colors. However, the colors in the palette look very similar to one another when swatched.
Also, from a formula standpoint, there are three finishes: matte, metallic, and shimmer. Each of the formulas is consistently good.
Mino – dark chocolate matte
Ahosi – light cantaloupe matte
Kano – caramel matte
Moremi – white gold metallic
Dahomey – russet gold metallic
Bakwa – gold metallic
Benin – golden taupe metallic
Amina – macaroon shimmer
Idia – butterscotch shimmer
Application & Wear-Time
All of the shadows within the Warrior Palette perform exceptionally on the eyes. The shades apply ease. The mattes, metallics, and shimmers feel buttery. The pigmentation of the shadows is out of this world. For the most impact, the metallics should be applied with a finger or a flat brush.
Despite all the above praise, there are two major cons with this palette. First, there are not enough matte shadows. I wish there was at least one more mid-tone brown or copper matte shadow to deepen up looks. Second, the color story of this palette is limited. Many of the colors look similar applied to the eye. Another deep shade would add more range to the palette.
The shadows in the Warrior Palette last on my oily lids all day when worn over a primer. I don’t experience any creasing, fading, or smudging when paired with a good base. Also, I do not notice any fallout.
Please note, when converting the UK pricing back to US dollars, the Juvia’s Place palettes are more expensive in the UK. Also, Juvia’s Place frequently runs sales. Also, discount codes can be used on the brand’s products. My suggestion is to wait until a sale period to purchase from the brand.
The Warrior Eyeshadow Palette Review
Final Review of the Juvia’s Place Warrior Palette
Although I love the Warrior Eyeshadow Palette, I do not reach for this palette as much as I reach for my Nubian Eyeshadow Palette. Simply put, this golden-neutral color story is similar to other neutral eyeshadow palettes in my collection
My biggest complaint with this palette is that some of the metallics in the Warrior Palette look quite similar to the eye. More specifically, I wish that a few of the mid-tone brown and copper shades were swapped out for a deeper tone.
However, my overall review of the Juvia’s Place Warrior Palette is positive. I wholeheartedly recommend this palette to anyone looking for a stunning, golden palette.
In conclusion, the Juvia’s Place Warrior Palette* is a super affordable, high-quality neutral eyeshadow palette that is a wonderful addition to any beauty lover’s collection. Finally, this is a great addition to any beauty lovers with small collections due to the sheer volume of product included. Buyers with small collections will get their money’s worth.
