Inside My Custom Z Palette | UK Stockist, Tips & Swatches


Every American YouTuber seems to have a Z Palette (£15.99 for a Large) however I only recently realised that those of us in the UK can order them fast and free from Beauty Bay! For those of you not in the know, they're magnetised palettes that mean you can depot your singles and store them all in one place.

I kept forgetting to use my gorgeous Makeup Revolution mono shadows so I though that picking up a Z Palette would be a great solution. It isn't the cheapest option considering the price of the individual eyeshadows but I really liked the idea of customising my own palette.

The Z palette comes with plenty of magnetised strips, both circular and square. I de-potted my eyeshadows using both a steak knife and a pair of nail scissors, so yeah: be careful! The Makeup Revolution ones were pretty easy to get out as the square edges mean you have something to grip onto and they fit into the palette pretty perfectly. The Body Shop shade came out pretty easily too however the Natural Collection ones were really tricky (as you can see they got damaged in the process) due to the minimal amount of space to manoeuvre between the pan and packaging. I also tried to depot my NYX shadows, which are in the old square packaging but it was just too tricky! You need to be patient with this part, especially if you're working with more expensive eyeshadows.

You may want to get a sticky label or something to have the shade names on the bottom, however I decided just to put them in alphabetically (though after looking through this post, I think I need to switch one or two!) My top tip is to make sure you know the order or you've labelled the shade before you depot any similar colours as if you don't keep track you're going to get confused and not know which shade is which. Another idea would be to do a little print-off of the shade names and stick it on the back.

Now, onto the fun stuff; a little walk-through of the shades in mine....

Most of these are the Makeup Revolution Mono Eyeshadows. You can read shade-by-shade reviews of all of these here and here so for now I'll just give you an overview and some swatches.

These are an incredible £1 each (yes, you read that correctly!) and have the nicest, smoothest, most buttery texture. The pigmentation is seriously impressive and I have a selection of rosy, golden and plummy tones. There are no big chunks of glitter, just a gorgeous, dewy metallic finish.


1 - MUR Adore Moi, 2 - MUR Cappucino, 3 - MUR Dirty Cash, 4 - MUR Illuminate, 5 - MUR I Need You, 6 - MUR I Want U, 7 - MUR Promised Land


1 - MUR Just Me, 2 - MUR Mountains of Gold, 3 - MUR So Good to Me, 4 - TBS Golden Cinnamon, 5 - NC Milk Chocolate, 6 - NC - Crushed Walnut 

I also have one Body Shop Colour Crush Eyeshadow: Golden Cinnamon (£7). It's a gorgeous red cinnamon shimmer shade that I don't think I'd have got enough use out of if it was still sat in my drawer as a single. Finally there are two Natural Collection Solo Eyeshadows (£1.99 each): Milk Chocolate (a pinky-taupe matte) and Crushed Walnut (a dark brown matte). These have the best budget matte eyeshadow formula I've ever tried and I feel like the colours cover both bases in terms of crease shades that compliment the other colours in the palette. Milk Chocolate also makes a gorgeous matte base shade.

So there you have it: everything I can think of that you need to know if you're considering getting a Z Palette and a little look at mine.

Do you use single eyeshadows much? If you have a Z Palette which eyeshadows do you use it for?

  6. These eyeshadows look gorgeous! I never owned a z-palette before but I wish I did because my MAC palette fell on the ground once and all eyeshadows were smashed because they had fallen out. It was a sad day for 15 eyeshadows. Love the post! :)

  12. Those MUR ones are stunning and I like you don't often buy singles as I know I won't use them as much but this is a really good idea and I didn't know that you could get the Z palette here so thanks for that info :)

  13. I love all the MUR ones! I usually buy palettes as I know I'll either forget about singles or loose them! I think Z palettes do seem cool, but since I don't buy palettes, I'll be sticking to palettes, but thanks for letting us know where you can buy them! xx

  24. I think I missed your reviews on these shadows before but my they are amazing - the pigment! I'm visiting the US soon and I've heard that ULTA is now carrying some Makeup Revolution - I hope they have these singles because if they do, they're coming home with me! Oh, and yes, I own a few Z-palettes - which ae gathering dust - the poor eye shadows are so neglected! Too many distractions. #beautybloggerproblems

  25. Love the look of your Z palette - it's perfect for single shadows and you're really going to get a lot of use out of them ^_^ I have loved depotting my sleek palettes in there, though as you said it was a tedious process, it was 100% worth the struggle because I feel like I'm actually getting use out them.

  26. Don't use a steak knife and scissors! eek!
    Personally, I use a hair straightener, and it works quite and effectively. No knife required!

    1. I know heat loosens the pans but you do still have to prise the pan out. If you have a blunt tool that's thin enough to get it out then obviously that's a better idea. None of these shadows were stuck in especially fast so it was simply a case of sliding something thin between the packaging and the pan and lifting a bit

  27. I really want to pick on of these up for some Makeup Geek shadows I want to pick up. Great to hear your thoughts! The palette looks great and the colors are to die for. :)
