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 :)

    I like the mac pallette better

  • May

    So between the two, would you say the MAC palette or the Z palette is the better one for travel? Love your vids BTW!

  • Ashley

    I really like how the z palette looks.

  • Caitlyn_Contagion

    I’m totally down for this battle of the best blog.

  • HovercatMittens

    I’d like to try the Z palette but the price is still throwing me off. I did see someone once take the divider top out of the MAC palette to make more room. I know I’d screw it up so I wont attempt it!

    • Mindy

      hah! n/m I should have watched video first then read, then comment. I did it backwards! You did the removal thingy already :)

  • Ashley

    Lovin’ the unii palette:] But MAC is much more affordable and okayy in your not traveling and using to store de potted eyeshadows but the ZPalette is so freakin’ cute with the zebra, cheetah prints. Thanks so much Leesha! I like the Vs. theme. You R0CK[:

  • kathrina

    i think you should do the two-faced vs urban decay primer battle! its always a tough call when deciding on primers

  • Carley

    have you tried the coastal scents one?

    • xsparkage

      yes. the coastal scents one is separated by a foam separater, and if you take it out there are only magnets under where the separaters put eyeshadow, so its kinda pointless to take out the foam thing. not my favorite

  • Kendall

    Hey Leesha! Can you a tutorial on your make-up in the vid? Thanks =)

    • xsparkage

      yes, it is for a video coming up in a few weeks for eye shades :)

  • carolina

    the Zpalette seems to be the best option to have.i’m not really into the mac palette i feel like they’re too plain and boring. there’s just nothing really special about it. i have yet to try the uni palette though…

  • LuvJ

    I’m so glad to see this comparison.. the UNII palette seems to be the most versatile but quite costly as well..

  • Tempara

    don;t know what to choose. they are all good

  • Sarrah T

    I really just want the z palettes because of the fun patterns/color.

  • Angie

    I think I like the Unii palette best even though it’s expensive. =) I like my cases durable.

  • Fernanda

    I’ve been looking at the Z palette and I think it is really nice and useful. Thank you for introducing the uni-palette to me.
    Love from Portugal

  • lana

    cool giveaway :) I like the Uni palette best because of the mirror and size. I like the prints on Z tho!

  • Emily

    Thanks for this! I’ve actually been looking for a comparison among these palettes! So glad you did it!

  • mireya

    i like the zpalette because of the designs but i also like the unii palette (:

  • Saloria

    I really like the Z Palette but I can definitely see getting the Unii Palette for traveling. The case reminds me of portable gaming cases … like the ones for the DS lol. Love the Battle vid btw … can’t wait to see the new series’ your doing.

  • Meagan

    I wish the z palettes came in giraffe print!

  • Todd

    Thanks You so much for a great comparison and contest!! <3

  • Caitlyn

    I love this. Such a great idea for a series. I think the Z-Palettes are the best option and the colors are super cute.

  • Zee

    The Unii palettes are so cute! But I agree, in the end I think the Z palettes are the best bet.

  • Geormart

    Thanks for having this giveaway Leesha :D

  • Lady_B

    i like the Zpalette better 2


    10x for the tutorials

    i learned a lot from u



  • Jam

    i want the Z palettes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Aqeelah

    omg the unii palette is soo cutee and the z palette love the zebra print

  • Lisa

    I really like the Z palette! I’m always disorganized, and I think if I could put a bunch of my favourite shadows together, it’d be so much easier. The Unii palette is very cute though. But they don’t fit as many, and I don’t travel a lot. Thanks for making the video, Leesha! Love your vids. : )

  • Linda

    I’m still dying to try the Z Palette after hearing people talk about it. The only thing I was worried about is the plastic cover, and you’re the first one to touch on that, so thank you. :)

    (And holy hell, I’d LOVE to depot my UD books…especially Alice. So pretty, but wow, how much packaging does *eyeshadow* need?!)

  • makeuplover101

    This looks amazing !!!

  • Patricia

    the z paleettte looks amazing!

  • Nanda

    I have read much about the z palette and was actually thinking these were the best option. Do not know much about the uni.. looking up the that one now.

  • CatherineSolo

    I am a sucker for anything zebra print… thanks so much for this, I’d never even heard of these palettes but they are definitely going to come in handy!

  • Kayleigh

    The Unii Pallette’s and the Z-Pallette’s look amazing! The green Unii one is such a pretty colour ^.^

  • Jenni

    I love the Zpalette. Esp. the zebra ones. I love your videos.
    Thank You so much for your videos.

  • Shayna

    Hey!! I love the look of the z palettes, I only wish they had a mirror. Do you find it hard to travel and have to carry an extra mirror?

  • Farangis

    The UNII Palettes looks so nice, sadly they are so expensive…

    I like the Z-Palette. They’re so good looking, not that huge-looking like the mac ones do. very nice :) I think the Unii-palette is really nice too, maybe a little expensive… otherwise.. there is a huge mirror ^^
