I love a good palette, but there is always that odd couple of shades that you end up never using. Then I decided to move on to single eyeshadows, which was great for a couple of months, until my makeup cupboards starts overflowing and once again I was using the same shades over and over again. Quick check on Amazon led me to the world of Z Palettes – empty magnetic palettes and potentially the best compact solution to my problem.
Z Palettes come in different sizes, colors and patterns and they are also great for travel. All you need is to depot your single eye shadows (quite easy and pain free process, to my surprise) and you are good to go. Most eye shadows come in metal pan which simply sticks to the empty magnetic palette. Z Palettes also come with a selection of magnetic beds to stick to the bottom of eye shadows that are not in metal pans. As a self-confessed eye shadow hoarder I picked up Z Palette in large that claim to fit 35 standard pans. Realistically you can fill it with about 20 different size eye shadows, blushes, bronzers etc. or indeed 35 standard pans. The palette itself its very lightweight and have large clear front window that comes quite handy. Z Palette is a great makeup organiser that helped me declutter and better organize my ever growing makeup collection.
How to depot your eye shadows – you will need hair straighteners, foil, needle and a small knife. There are many good tips on how to depot eyeshadows it properly, depending on the brand , so check out YouTube, there are tons of videos. It really takes about 2-5 minutes per item and once done right you can always go back and use again the single branded casing.
