Enter the Z Palette
The Z palettes are great as they have a fully magnetized base without any compartments so you can fit any size or shape pans in there. I decided to buy the large one as I thought I could fit all my MAC, Inglots and whatever single eyeshadows I had.
Unfortunately I had underestimated how many eyeshadows I actually do own because I didn't manage to fit everything in it. At 20cm x 13cm the large palette is smaller than I thought it would be. I'm not too fussed though, as I still managed to fit 28 MAC sized (26mm) eyeshadows in there.
Some of my MAC pans didn't stick to the palette (probably because sneaky MAC has used special metals to ensure they only stick to MAC palettes), but I had magnet strips which I cut and stuck to the bottom of those pans and all worked well. (You can get magnet strips from haberdashery and craft stores for a few dollars).
If you're interested in the shades that did make it into the palette, they're listed below.
2nd row - Inglot 467, MAC Moleskin, MAC Saddle, MAC Swiss Chocolate, Inglot 363, Inglot 460, Inglot 409
3rd row - MAC Vex, MAC Sumptuous Olive, MAC Humid, Australis (re-pressed shade from old palette), MAC Newly Minted, Teal shade from MAC Double Feature 3, Inglot 428
4th row - Inglot 29, Inglot 493, MAC Parfait Amour, Inglot 40, Inglot 459, Inglot 420, Inglot 502
I also have the smaller Z palette which I bought a while back but haven't used yet. I'll be leaving the small one empty for now, and use it as a travel palette so I can transfer the shades I want to take traveling with me from this large one to the smaller one. The small Z Palette fits 9 x 26mm eyeshadows.
I bought both palettes from Crush Cosmetics. The large one costs $26.95AUD and the small one $19.95AUD.
How do you organise your single eyeshadows? Do you own similar palettes?
