Next up in my review of all of the Juvia’s Place palettes is The Zulu palette. This one could be described as the rainbow palette with six mattes and three metallics. Or as Juvia’s Place describes it: “A limitless expression of your artistic and fun side, fused with day to night time looks.”
So something I’ve failed to mention in my previous posts on Juvia’s Place palettes is that they have a vegan formula. Meaning inside of using carmine (a crushed beetle for red pigments) they use dyes. Which a lot of brands use for shadows. Technically these are would be considered pressed pigments as the FDA does not approve the following dyes to be used around the eye area due to their potential for staining the skin: Yellow 5 Lake, Blue 1 Lake, and Red 40 Lake. There should be a label on the back of the outer packaging for this but I don’t have a single outer packaging anymore from this brand as I was trying to limit the clutter since I knew this was going to take a while to get through all of the palettes. But I completely neglected to notate if the palettes actually mention that fact more so than just listing the ingredients. There’s only one Juvia’s Place palette that is not vegan and that was the original palette The Nubian (which I have yet to do to).
Shades Descriptions (this is the only palette that doesn’t have names for each of the shades):
- Matte Tangerine Orange
- Matte Canary Yellow
- Matte Pecan
- Matte Jade
- Metallic Lime Green
- Metallic Aquamarine
- Metallic Rose Gold
- Matte Magenta
- Matte Electric Purple
Like all other Juvia’s Place palettes this one cost $20 at Ulta. There are two new ones apparently that haven’t made it to Ulta yet as well as larger versions of the mini palettes. So I think I’m going to need to purchase for those soon. So I have them for the final round up of all the palettes that I’m planning for in the end.
As I mentioned in my previous Juvia’s Place review I’m not going to do a deep dive anymore in the performance as they have all been the same but here is the quick summary: the metallics are like butter, the mattes are extremely pigmented without being patchy, and it all blends out seamlessly. If you want to see my previous reviews, here is the list of them:

- Juvia’s Place The Nubian 2 Palette Review & Swatches
- Juvia’s Place The Warrior Palette Review & Swatches

Overall, the Zulu palette is a fun palette for a pop of color and I’m living for this rainbow eye with a solid black lip.
