I purchased my first Z Palette a little over a month ago and I’m starting to research products to fill it with. I purposely bought the Dome palette so I wouldn’t be limited in what I wanted to include, as it has an extra deep base. Although now that I’ve started window shopping, I suspect this won’t matter too much as I foresee additional Z palettes in my future #wantallthethings
MY CRITERIA: I see my palette mostly consisting of eyeshadows, with a blush or two thrown in and maybe a highlighter or bronzer. I don’t plan on traveling with this palette and I kind of want do a mix of neutral everyday shades and pops of colour. Ideally I’d like to not have to de-pot anything, which is why I focused on products that are available for purchase in a pan format.
In addition, I’m only purchasing products from Canadian retailers, either in-store or online. While I would love to add some Makeup Geek products to my collection, the extra costs associated with exchange, duty and shipping make it hard to justify right now. So I’ve narrowed my choices down to Mac, Inglot, and Anastasia Beverley Hills.
Eyeshadows: Paradisco (Frosty bright pinky-coral with pearl); Gleam (Lustre barely pinked gold); Swish (Frosty bright pink with icy shimmer); Fig.1 (Matte eggplant purple); Nocturnelle (Frosty pinked-up chrome purple); Plum Dressing (Veluxe pearl pinky-plum with metal); Stars & Rockets (Veluxe pearl purple with a pink pearl); Deep Truth (Frosty True Dark Blue); Satellite Dreams (Deep plum with pearl); Steamy (Frosty bluish-green with gold pearl); Patina (Frosty taupe brown with golden pearl); Satin Taupe (Frosty taupe with silver shimmer); Swiss Chocolate (Matte muted reddish-brown)
- Anastasia Beverly Hills:
Blushes: Blush #20:
THE VERDICT: I won’t be purchasing these all at once but slowly over time, unless I do an online purchase on Inglot of course. I will update my purchases as they happen.
If you have any shadows/blushes/bronzers/highlighters that you would recommend or advise I’d stay away from, please let me know below – I’d so appreciate it!
Have a great weekend!
