By  |  78 Comments

I’ve gotten to try out all three of these palettes, here are my thoughts on them!

Extra Info:



Thanks so much HovercatMittens for the photos!!

15 pan Palette: $14
6 Blush pan Palette: $14
4 pan Palette: $5

These are the cheapest, most accessible option. Be careful traveling with these, and pack them nicely!!



Unii Palette: $29 and free shipping

From the website:

Each UNII Palette Includes:
• Magnetized Palette, so makeup stays put
• Adhesive magnetic sheet with writable labels
• Large, full-sized mirror for makeup on the go
• Movable thumb grip
• Tight, rubberized seal prevents leaks
• Durable and purse-friendly
• Makeup not included

Unii Palette comes in really cool packaging that actually explains how to depot shadows right on it! love love. The website also shows how different brands fit, how to depot, and even how brushes fit into the palette!




Large Palette: $20
Small Palette: $14
40 Pre Cut magnets: $4.50

From The Website:
The patent-pending Z Palette is an exclusive custom palette perfect for display and color comparison. It features a sleek and clean design that offers the strength of a plastic palette, while using eco-friendly recyclable materials that will not crack or break. Fold the top portion completely under the bottom portion for a space saving feature on your vanity or makeup station. The Z Palette is the only one of its kind that includes both a clear window and an open magnetic base to fit any size shadow, blush, bronzer and even some foundations. Replace colors as often as you would like to your preference.

Z Palette also has a page on their site that tells you what brands offer shadows already in palette form. They also have a page showing tips on different ways to depot your shadows. REALLY useful!!

I’m also giving away a set of the small and large Zebra Z Palettes, courtesy of Z Palette :)

    You’ve sold me on this idea! The unii sounds good too- I’m always dropping things so the padding might be helpful.

    loved the review, didn’t even think i could do something like that with my eyeshadows and as much as i adore the colors in my alice in wonderland palette it was such a pain in the butt to open it and use it. As soon as i saw that you used these palettes for that i went and got my own, i love it! I never want to use the original packaging again!

      I’ve depotted my Urban Decay palettes into my Unii palettes, apart from my Alice one, couldn’t bring myself to rip it apart so it’s staying as it is for now
