Juvia's Place eye shadow palettes review | My Mall Box experience story

Juvia's Place eye shadow palettes review
On my Instastories you were already able to have a sneak peak of my newest purchase - the Internet famous brand's Juvia's Place eye shadow palettes. These Instastories set a new record for me engagement wise as so many of you reached out to me and asked how did I order the palettes. Mainly my Latvian and other European country followers where interested in this matter since this brand is very available for my readers in the US. This article has been made in collaboration with My Mall Box and through this company I had the chance to order my Juvia's place palettes without paying a ridiculous amount of shipping costs (more on that later). My Mall Box is a shipping company and with it's help you can order products by forwarding your package from those US online shops that either do not offer shipping to your country or offer it for a very high cost.

LV
Savos Instastories jau parādīju nelielu ieskatu manam jaunākajam kosmētikas pirkumam – interneta vidē izslavētās Juvia’s Place acu ēnu paletēm. Man liekas, ka šie Instastories izpelnījās rekordlielu engagement, jo tik daudz ziņu no jums, kas interesējās par šīm paletēm, saņēmusi nebiju vēl nekad. 
Iesākumā pastāstīšu par to kā tad es šīs paletes dabūju pie sevis uz Latviju, savukārt, pēc tam pastāstīšu nedaudz vairāk par pašu zīmolu un, protams, par pašām paletēm. Šis raksts ir tapis sadarbībā ar uzņēmumu My Mall Box ar kura starpniecību vari iepirkties ASV internetveikalos, kas nenodrošina piegādi uz Latviju vai arī, ja nodrošina, tad paciņu pie sevis uz Latvijas adresi saņemsi nesamaksājot tik astronomiskas piegādes izmaksas kā tās mēdz būt dažās no oficiālajām ASV internetveikalu mājas lapās.
Juvia's Place eye shadow palettes review
A step by step guide how My Mall Box works:
1) You have to register on My Mall Box. After you'll register you will receive your USA address (the address for all My Mall Box clients is the same - only the suite number differs so that they would know it's your package).
2) When you shop on US online shops at the checkout use your personal contact information as name and surname etc, and the address you can see in your My Mall Box profile.
3) After you've made your order, My Mall Box will contact you when they've received your order. Now you have various options on how to proceed:
a) you can ask them to repack your package together with other packages (if you've made multiple orders)
b) you can ask them to repack your package in a smaller package (reducing it's size and shipping costs) or you can even ask them to split your package
c) you can write down your address, choose the delivery method and send out the package to your country.
4) The period of time between ordering the palettes on Juvia's Place and actually receiving them was around three weeks, which I think is an optimal period of time.

Tātad pa soļiem, kā darbojas My Mall Box:
1) Jāpiereģistrējas My Mall Box mājas lapā. Piereģistrējoties Tu saņem savu ASV adresi (adrese visiem My Mall Box klientiem ir gandrīz vienāda – atšķiras Suite numurs, pēc kura viņi var noteikt, ka paciņa ir Tavējā).
2) Iepērkoties ASV internetveikalos, pie adreses informācijas norādi savu vārdu, uzvārdu un to adresi, kas ir norādīta Tavā My Mall Box profilā
3) My Mall Box ar Tevi sazināsies (epasta veidā), kad viņi būs saņēmuši Tavu paciņu. Šajā mirklī Tu vari izvēlēties vai sakomplektēt šo paciņu ar kādu citu savu pasūtījumu (piemēram, ja Tu iepērcies dažādos ASV internetveikalos), vari, lūgt, lai viņi par pārpako sūtījumu (sakomplektē mazākā iepakojumā (lai samazinātu piegādes izmaksas), saliek divos iepakojumos utt.), vai arī norādi savu adresi, izvēlies piegādes veidu un nosūti paciņu uz adresi Latvijā.
4) No pasūtījuma izdarīšanas brīža Juvia’s Place līdz paciņas saņemšanai Latvijā pagāja ~ 3 nedēļas, kas, manuprāt, ir ļoti optimāls laiks.

The complete costs with My Mall Box (on 19.02.2017.)
1) Three eye shadow palettes - 78 dollars
2) Shipping costs to US address - 5 dollars
3) Discount code "Nikkie" (Youtube beauty guru NikkieTutorials) - 7.80 dollars (10%)
4) Shipping costs to Latvia - 27 dollars

78 + 5 - 7.80 + 27 = 102.20 dollars

Complete costs without My Mall Box (on 19.02.2017.)
1) Three eye shadow palettes - 78 dollars
2) Shipping costs to LV adress - 55 dollars
3) Discount code "Nikkie" (Youtube beauty guru NikkieTutorials) - 7.80 dollars (10%)

78 + 55 -7.80 = 125.20 dollars

THE DIFFERENCE - 23 dollars

My thoughts
Honestly, I do not think that at the end of the day the shipping costs were the cheapest ones, but still 23 dollars are 23 dollars and you could almost buy another eye shadow palette with them. I think that this service is the most beneficial if you'd like to order something from Sephora, Ulta and other shops that might not provide shipping to your country. Or if the US store offers shipping to your country, but for a really big price. If I'd decide to order something, for example, from ColourPop I would probably not use My Mall Box because it just wouldn't be beneficial. There is one minus when it comes to My Mall Box and it's the fact that you will not know the exact costs of shipping to your country till the package will have arrived at the My Mall Box centre. There they'll calculate the shipping costs based of the size and weight of the packaging. They have a shipping calculator on their website, but it's only useful if you already know how much the product you want to order weighs. Sadly, this kind of information is not always available on the official websites.

Kopējās izmaksas ar My Mall Box (uz 19.02.2017.):
1)  Trīs acu ēnu palešu izmaksas – 78 dolāri
2) Piegādes izmaksas uz ASV adresi – 5 dolāri
3) Atlaižu kods “Nikkie” (Youtube beauty guru NikkieTutorials) – 7.80 dolāri (10%)
4) Piegādes izmaksas uz Latviju – 27 dolāri

78 + 5 – 7.80 + 27 = 102.20 dolāri

Kopējās izmaksas bez My Mall Box (uz 19.02.2017.):
1) Trīs acu ēnu palešu izmaksas – 78 dolāri


2) Piegādes izmaksas uz LV adresi – 55 dolāri
3) Atlaižu kods “Nikkie” (Youtube beauty guru NikkieTutorials) – 7.80 dolāri (10%)

78 + 55 – 7.80 = 125.20 dolāri

STARPĪBA – 23 dolāri

Manas domas
Godīgi sakot neuzskatu, ka kopējās piegādes izmaksas būtu tās pašas lētākās, bet ietaupījums 23 dolāru vērtībā vienalga ir ietaupījums (gandrīz veselas acu ēnu paletes cena). Uzskatu, ka šis pakalpojums ir visizdevīgākais tad, ja vēlies pasūtīt kaut ko no tiem ASV internetveikaliem, kas nepiedāvā piegādi uz Latviju, piemēram, Sephora, Ulta utt., vai arī tādiem internetveikaliem kā Juvia’s Place, kas nodrošina piegādi, bet kuras izmaksas ir ļoti augstas. Lai pasūtītu kosmētiku, piemēram, no ColourPop šāda veida pakalpojumu neizmantotu, jo tas nebūtu izdevīgi. Mīnuss ko varu pieminēt ir tas, ka Tu nezināsi piegādes izmaksas uz Latviju, līdz paciņa nenonāks My Mall Box centrā, kur tā tiks aprēķināta balstoties uz Tavas paciņas izmēriem un svaru. Viņiem mājas lapā ir piegādes kalkulators, bet tas ir noderīgs tikai tad, ja zināsi konkrētā produkta svaru, kas ne vienmēr ir norādīts oficiālajās mājas lapās.
Juvia's Place eye shadow palettes review
And now a little more about Juvia's Place and their beautiful eye shadow palettes.
Juvia's Place is a brand whose owner Chichi Eburu is women of colour with roots in Nigeria. At the start the brand's main philosophy was to offer black women eye shadow palettes that they could actually use and it would fit their skin tone. Most makeup brands target light colour skin tone clients and in most of cases they neglect the black colour skin tone audience or offer a very narrow range of products. This is one of the brands that gained massive popularity through social media, especially through Youtube and also because of the insanely good quality of the eye shadows.
I, myself, have tried all three palettes and I can only say the best things about them. The quality is top notch and the eye shadows are definitely are up there with high end and even luxury brands quality wise. They are super easy to apply, they blend like a dream and they do not crease or move throughout the day (though, as with all eye shadows I use - I use an eye shadow primer). I like them, a lot. I certainly recommend all three palettes, but my favorite at the moment has to be the Mini Masquerade palette as the bright and bold colours will look perfect in this summer.

Un tagad nedaudz vairāk par Juvia’s Place un burvīgajām acu ēnu paletēm.
Juvia’s Place ir zīmols, kura īpašniece Chichi Eburu ir melnādainas krāsas īpašniece ar saknēm Nigērijā un, kura sākotnēji par Juvia’s Place galveno mērķauditoriju izvēlējās tieši melnādainās krāsas īpašnieces. Galvenā uzņēmuma filozofija bija, ka acu ēnas tiktu pielāgotas tā, lai tās derētu arī tumšas ādas krāsas īpašniecēm, jo ļoti daudzi dekoratīvās kosmētikas zīmoli galvenokārt koncentrējas uz gaišas ādas īpašniecēm, piedāvājot ļoti mazu sortimentu citas ādas krāsas īpašniecēm. Šis ir viens no tiem zīmoliem, kas ļoti lielu popularitāti ieguva tieši ar sociālo mediju palīdzību, it sevišķi Youtube, kā arī ar acu ēnu neticami augsto kvalitāti.
Pati esmu izmēģinājusi visas trīs acu ēnu paletes un varu teikt tikai un vienīgi pašas labākās lietas par tām. Kvalitāte patiešām ir ļoti laba un ir konkurētspējīga ar dārgo zīmolu acu ēnu kvalitāti. Acu ēnas viegli uzklājas un pludinās uz plakstiņiem, noturība ir lieliska un dienas laikā (ar acu ēnu bāzes palīdzību) neizkustēsies no vietas un nesakrāsies rieviņās. Man patīk – ļoti! Noteikti iesaku visas trīs paletes – mīļākā man laikam ir Masquerade palete, jo vasarā spilgtie un sulīgie toņi izskatīsies lieliski!

Disclaimer
I bought the palettes and covered the shipping costs to US address myself. In collaboration with My Mall Box, they covered the shipping expenses to my country.

Par paletēm un piegādes izmaksām uz ASV adresi maksāju pati. Sadarbībā ar My Mall Box, šis uzņēmums apmaksāja piegādes izmaksas uz Latviju.
