I decided to purchase duochrome shadows once. I wanted to try them out badly. So I started looking for something affordable. At first I opted for the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone, but then I saw Juvia's Place products and was hooked. I actually wanted to try this shade for quite a while, but it was usually out of stock. Now I finally purchased it.
I’ve been using this shadow for a long time now, so I’m ready to share my experience with it
The packaging is very plain. The eyeshadow comes in a pan that is packed in a paper package with a see-through middle.
On the back you can find some information about the ingredients, shade and manufacturer. Weight: 3.6g,
which is a lot and will last me forever given that it’s not the only shadow I use.
The pan is securely fixed in a package:
So, the shade is brown-red with a green overflow. To be honest, the green doesn’t belong to my favorite colors, but it’s a duochrome after all
The first two pictures are taken in the sun, the last one - in the shadow. The color is obviously very fascinating.
Let’s take a look at the hand swatch. Left: without an eyeshadow base. Right: with an eyeshadow base.
I used the base to show you the difference in colors. But as far as I can see, there is no significant difference. You can just layer the shadow for the color to pop.

In the shadow:
The product has a creamy formula, which is so nice to work with
It’s very soft and easy to coat to get a deep payoff. The hint of green is very visible, so you won’t have to apply much effort to make it pop. I love applying it with a flat, thick and tightly packed brush:
Due to this texture the shadow blends out perfectly:
When blending out, it’s clear that the eyeshadow is not brown, but has a hint of red. The green part doesn't become that intense, but it’s still there.
It looks pretty nice even when used alone without any additional shades:
So, it can be used on the go. The edge of the color can be blended out.
The staying power on my eyelids depends on an eyeshadow base and its quality.
It doesn’t survive after the entire working shift in my case. It creases slightly yet looks decent, so it’s not a deal-breaker. Anyway you can just blend it out carefully and it will look better. The staying power against normal skin is great. It will last till makeup removal with a good primer on.
SUMMARY: I recommend it.
The quality is on point and the application is super easy. Plus, I’m personally obsessed with the shade
