Z Palette Review

PhotobucketI’m on a roll with these reviews y’all. Sooner or later (maybe before 2010 rounds the corner!) I will be up to date with all the posts I owe you!

I have been itchin’ to review the Z Palette for a while now. It’s a simple thing really, a magnetized case for your loose pans, etc. I finally got to purchase one while at the Artist Summit in Miami, and I haven’t regretted the decision!

From the site:

This exclusive custom palette is perfect for display and color comparison. Its outstanding sleek and clean design offers an open magnetic base to fit any size eye shadow, blush, bronzer, or even foundation! So you can keep all your favorites from all different makeup brands in one place. The compact finish is made of a high quality matte paper, which is easy to clean and is 70% recyclable. Best of all with its clear window you can see exactly what’s inside! Replace colors as often as you would like to your preference.

Here’s how many I got to fit into the sucker:

I tried to put in as many different brands and shapes as I could. Of course I remembered others once I took the photos, but I refuse to do any more takes!

It’s not that big either, a bit bigger than the MAC 15 well palette, and just as thin:

The large palettes are $20 and the small (see bottom left below) are $14.

The pros:

  • All orders made on the site are with free shipping to US orders! (They sell magnet squares too).
  • The cover lets you see through to what you have inside your palette (especially great for makeup artists).
  • The cover is attached to the palette – no more oopsie I dropped all my palette and now it looks like the dunes of rainbow dune on the floor!
  • You can organize different shaped pans into the palette & fill the little nooks with smaller pans.

The cons:
I honestly can’t see one. I had a minor concern early on about the dust pileup of when you use the shadows (in between the pans), but you can just blow lightly to clear it, or use a compressed duster can (like for keyboards).

And now they come in pink and zebra print! No more getting stickers and sitting down for arts and crafts to give your Z Palette character!

PhotobucketThey made me want to make wiiild and craaazzy shapes in Paint (so sue me!).
