I feel like the most hyped palette from Juvia’s Place is the Zulu palette. To be honest for some reason it doesn’t really appeal to me because of the color combination but I still wanted to try it. I mean I do really like the Saharan palette (my review of that palette you can find here) and Juvia’s Place is generally good and quite affordable.
Because I own this palette for quite some time now I thought I might do a review on it.


  • It retails for $20 ( or 23.75€ (
  • It contains 6 matte and 3 shimmery eyeshadows
  • Net Wt.: 32.4g/ 1.14oz
  • So you pay around $0.62 per gram/ $17.54 per ounce

Overall the formula is good.
The shimmer eyeshadows are good. They are not the most metallic eyeshadows I’ve tried but they’re not claiming to be like that.

The mattes are not consistent. Some shades work great – nicely pigmented and blend well – but some (the brown and the purple) are not that pigmented and when you blend them they kind of disappear. But that only happens if you set your eyeshadow base. I recently started not setting my eyeshadow base (because eyeshadows are more pigmented this way) and that works well. With a sticky base (like a concealer that is not set with powder) underneath all eyeshadows work amazing.

Also I wnat to add that some of these eyeshadows might stain your skin. I think that happend with the pink and the purple shade. The best way to minimize that is to use an oily makeup remover and after cleansing your skin really moisturizing your eye area. But it can still happen. But I personally don’t really mind that.


  • Affordable
  • Overall good quality
  • Blend well


  • Some shades are not that pigmented (but work great if you use a sticky base underneath)


I think the price on Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palettes is pretty good. You overall get good quality eyeshadows for quite a low price. Especially if you apply your eyeshadows on a sticky base the eyeshadows perform really good.

I have to say that still I don’t like the color combination in the palette. To be honest I don’t really use this palette that often because I don’t get a lot of ideas what makeup looks to do with this palette alone. I feel like I need more deeper shades to complete a look. But that is of course just personal preference.

So if you like the colors in the palette and don’t mind that some shades need to be applied over a sticky base I think you will probably really enjoy it.

This is not one of my favorite palettes mostly because of the shades in the palette. But I still really enjoy Juvia’s Place eyeshadows and probably will look into more of their eyeshadows.
