Juvia’s made sure to bubblewrap the palette inside the box! HUGE Kudos to them! not to mention, they wrapped both palettes in bubblewrap and the box contained packing peanuts!♥
Masquerade Mini vs Nubian 2 palette.
Swatches courtesy of my boyfriend’s arm. 😛 The Masquerade Mini Palette, From Left to Right:
CHI, MALI,DALIA,ZOLA, MAKEDA,ZOBO,CALABAR, BORI,GIZA,BURKINA,CAIRO,ADA, DAHIA, ZULU, CASABLANCA, FULANI.
The color payoff in this palette, were so-so, if you can tell in the photo, most of the lighter or neutral shades didn’t swatch too well and maybe 2 of the brighter colors. I only swatched these shadows once. I wanted to show the true pigmentation of these. I did not use a base or any type of primer. These were also swatched with fingers and no brushes. Note that this palette is cheaper than the Nubian 2 palette, even though it has more shades, I’m assuming this is due to the pan sizes. Which is comparable in the photo above. I would say the pan sizes are about the same sizes as your standard MAC shadows.
Retail price- $30.00
The Nubian 2 palette, swatches from left to right:
MOROCCO, MADAGASCAR, SHEBA,YAA,JEZEBEL,ZURI,CLEOPATRA, NEFERTITI,NAIROBI,LEYLA,KENYA,EGYPT.
The color payoff in this palette is amazing, Most of the shadows were swatched only once. There were 2 colors that I messed up swatching, so I ended up doing it twice, but otherwise these shadows within this palette is nothing short of amazing, I can’t wait to do a look with both of these palettes, My face has finally calmed down after the weekend (if you read my last post) Yay! Can’t wait to do one.
Retail price- $35
