It's close to how it's pronounce in English than it is to "Juice-thin" lol

There is more emphasis on the U then we use in English... I don't know how to explain it

no it's Jeus-tine!!

In english you pronouce it like "Just - in" but in french, the "u" isn't pronounced like that! It's more like Jeus-tine

I would say the 'thin-sound' is the right one. 'Steen' is too long IMO.

The first part is hard to explain, but it's not zhoo!

No, "thin" isn't how it's pronounced in French, it's pure English, "Steen" is much closer.

By "zh" I mean the sound at the start of French names such as "Justine".

Yeah but I was with the "oo". Can you give an example of a word?

That's pronouncing the whole word, you mean? But I think you have to end with a "n" as in many French words you don't pronounce the last lettre.
