THE PRODUCT: packaging

Move Me Jungle” is an eye palette by Swedish company Viva La Diva consisting in 9 eyeshadows contained inside a tin magnetic coffret with plenty of a leaf-y, brightly coloured design. 
Its rectangular tin case is well refined, it has a magnetic closure and includes a mirror; every and each pan has its own name stamped along with Viva la Diva’s brand stamp and slogans. 
It’s a glam manifesto!

Shades and finish:
This eye makeup has been inspired by luscious South American flora and wild nature, including... dirt, that’s pure love for archaeologists, right?The Move Me Jungle eyeshadow kit contains 9 shades with mixed finishes, indeed there are full mattes, metallics and pearly shades and even a foil
Each eyeshadow is named after a tropical country, from the Caribbean Sea to the Americas, and this is what attracted me: there’s a shade called “Venezuela” recalling my personal influences and it’s dear to me.

Formula and texture:
Viva La Diva products are cruelty-free, formulations are delicate and some makeup items have a vegan formula, that’s the case of today’s palette, the Move Me Jungle eyeshadow kit.
The eyeshadow texture is overall extra fine and impalpable with some little differences depending on the finish.
Indeed matte eyeshadows tend to be slightly powdery if compared with metallics and shimmeries.

The same happens with pigmentation as the mattes are less intense but, since they are natural shades, the colour payoff and result don’t suffer from this quality.

Colours:
Here are the 9 eyeshadows featured in Viva La Diva Move Me Jungle eyeshadow kit, this is how I would describe them and my extra considerations:

- Brazil: a deep forest green with totally green and cold reflections, metallic close to a foil finish, medium but buildable pigmentation
- Venezuela: an antique rose/lilac with golden shine (direct light) and cold/silvery shimmer in indirect light, “liquid metal” finish, extremely high pigmentation, easy to apply, blend and spread, light texture
- Ecuador: a cold brown/khaki with iridescent shimmer (direct light), extremely high pigmentation, easy to blend and apply, slightly powdery texture
- Tahiti: a neutral/light warm beige, matte finish, low to medium pigmentation, powdery texture
- Hawaii: a peachy rose with silvery shimmer, looks very pinky in indirect light, pearly/light metallic finish, good pigmentation, slightly powdery texture
- Fiji: a neutral powder pink, matte finish, low to medium pigmentation, powdery texture
- Tobago: a deep brown/rusty shade with iridescent shimmer (indirect light) and golden/orangy shine in direct light, extremely high pigmentation, easy to blend and apply
- Barbados: a purple with a brown touch with silver iridescent and pink shimmer, medium to high pigmentation, slightly powdery texture
- Dominica: a reddish plum, matte finish, slightly powdery texture, medium but buildable pigmentation, easy to blend and apply

All in all, the pigmentation has a medium to high level, where the less intense eyeshadows are the neutral mattes, followed by some metallic shades like Brazil.
I’ve expected a vibrant green from Brazil but it needs to be built little by little in order to get a great colour payoff.

Viva La Diva
eyeshadows featured in this Move Me Jungle palette are really long-lasting and don’t need a powerful primer as they stick well to the lid even with a simple cream or liquid concealer.
These eyeshadows are also versatile: Tahiti and Fiji are the perfect natural shade that can be used all over the lid up to the brow bone and blended to soften a smoky eye, fix or camouflage a smudge; Venezuela is an unexpected highlighter for eyes and face.
I used it to highlight the bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow and brow bone for my Olympéa makeup look which is all about cold and strong highlights!Venezuela surprises me for its texture that’s feathery light and its formula that literally fuses with my skin.
My absolute favourite and most used shades are, along with Venezuela, Ecuador, Tobago and Dominica.


PROS:
good selection of shades and mixed finishes
overall high pigmentation
versatile eyeshadows
creative package
large mirror
sturdy closure
delicate formula
cruelty-free and vegan
competitive price

CON:
hard to find online (for worldwide customers)
