The Juvia’s Place Issue: The Zulu Palette {Review+Giveaway}

We’ve finally come to the end of my Juvia’s Place series. I’ve reviewed three eyeshadow palettes in the past three weeks and today we’re having a look at the Zulu Eyeshadow palette.


The Zulu Eyeshadow Palette

I knew from seeing online pictures and swatches that this was an eyeshadow palette I wanted. It has an exciting selection of some warm shades along with pops of cool playful colours.



Art is life. The ambience of the Zulu eyeshadow palette takes on a new character. It exemplifies the rich arts of the Ndebele people of South Africa, embodied with colourful symmetry and precision. A limitless expression of self through eccentric hues, earth tones and exotic metallic shades.



The packaging of this palette is pretty basic but the simplicity is eye-catching. It might not be very clear on the picture but the cover looks white yet has a light pinkish tint to it. And as with all their palettes, you have the Nefertiti design. Some of the colours of the actual eyeshadows are also incorporated in this beautiful artwork. The eyeshadows, unfortunately, don’t have names, which is a little strange as most of their eyeshadows have names.


Eyeshadows and Pigmentation



Included in this palette are 6 mattes and 3 metallics. The matte shadows are semi-opaque with build-able coverage and I like them more for this. I love that you can buildup the intensity as much as you’re comfortable with. This is especially great with such bright shades that can be pretty intimidating for some makeup fanatics. The shadows are pretty firmly pressed in their pans and as a result, one won’t experience much kickback in the pan.

The Metallics are rich in pigment, creamy and one has a duo-chrome shift. These require less buildup to get the full intensity and you don’t even have to wet the brush.

Shade description :

The shadows don’t have names so I’m going to go in order from left to right.

  1. Light bright orange (matte)
  2. Straight up yellow (matte)
  3. Medium warm brown (matte)
  4. Teal (matte)
  5. Spring green (metallic)
  6. Aqua (metallic)
  7. Pink gold duo-chrome (metallic)
  8. Deep rose (matte)
  9. True deep purple (matte)

Final Thoughts

This brand, as some of you might know, is owned by a person of colour and that means that all the colours in her palettes are intense and will show up on even the deepest skin tones.

The Zulu palette is one of the best colourful eyeshadow palettes I’ve tried thus far. They have amazing colour payoff and the quality is exactly what I look for when it comes to bright colourful shades because they’re easy to work with. If you want to try more colour, but don’t know where to start, I would definitely recommend looking into this one.
