A while ago I ordered some Z-Palettes to finally try them out. I wanted to see if they lived up to all the hype I’ve heard about them.
I purchase a small Fabulous Pink palette and a small Zebra palette. These palettes fit all sizes and shapes of pans.
Urban Decay’s Sustainable Shadow Box palette depotted, Flirt! Dreamy eyes eye shadows depotted & Venomous Cosmetics sample pressed shadows are shown.
The Website Claims:
Custom palette ideal for home or portable for travel
Created from eco-friendly recyclable materials that won’t crack or break
Offers the strength of a plastic palette
$14 for the small size
$20 for the large size
‘Like’ the on facebook for 10% off with the code ZPAL10
$4.30 for 40 pack of magnets
Does it live up to its claims?
Yes. I like the palettes. They’ve got a nice magnetic base. I like the clear window. I love the zebra print coloring. These are lighter in weight than I expected. I like that all pans, no matter if they have magnets on the bottom or not, stick to these palettes. When I depotted the Flirt! eye shadows, and later the Urban Decay Sustainable Shadow Box palette, the shadows easily fit into the palettes and didn’t need me to apply a magnet to them at all.
Would I purchase again?
Yes, though I’ll be watching for them to be on sale. I like the palettes. Because of the clear lid, I think they’re perfect for at home use. I don’t know that I would take them traveling, as I think I’d prefer a plastic case, such as my Unii palettes, and I’ve not tested them to see how well they work for travel.
Products purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
I know TKB Trading has dupes of their smaller version for quite a bit less money. I wish they would dupe the larger size! $14/$20 for cardboard and a magnet just bothers me for some reason.
Agreed. I love the idea of being able to freestyle some wonky shaped depots, but $20? Pass.
At some point I’ll learn how to make my own.
I really want to get a Z Palette; to depot my MAC shadows mostly. So much more convenient. I think I’d get either plain black or the zebra print
Aww these look cute
One question: Is the clear lid hard or flexible?
These seem like a really good idea for travel or space saving, but I’m still wary about depotting my shadows. I don’t use too many pressed shadows that aren’t all ready in palettes, but I get the feeling my clumsy, overzealous self would shatter a lot of shadows!
I did bork my first 2 a bit, but the rest have been fine
The clear lid is nice so you can see what colours are inside. The zebra print is cute as well.
I adore the zebra print. I also like the magnet inside, so I don’t have to stick a magnet on pots.
I want these so bad! Thanks for the heads up on the facebook discount.
I’ve just ordered similar ones from TKB trading!
I usually make my own “freestyle” palettes with a metal CD box or cigarette tin + magnets. They’ve only traveled once, when I moved and everything survived except for some really crummy drug store shadows
I should figure out how to make my own with a cute print.
I just got the mini zebra and leopard one and I really love them too – less bulky and more value for the price than unii palette IMHO
I like the uniis, but I dislike that with the uniis you need to add magnets. I think they’re both good though.
