First things first (I Poppa…), this palette absolutely puts the Z-palette to shame. Oh how I wish I’d discovered this before investing in my Z-palettes. The Make Up For Ever Magnetic Palette is all metallic and it has the strongest magnet I’ve ever seen on any of these types of palettes. Your shadows will. not. move. And just to ensure the safety of your products even more, MUFE have added a clear plastic film in addition to a thick foam insert so everything’s wedged in securely.
The palette is surprisingly heavy but I don’t mind sacrificing weight for security. The foam insert can be a bit tricky to remove as it fits very snugly but I don’t tend to put it in unless I’m traveling with the palette. The palette comes in a few sizes but only the XL one seems to be readily available for sale. It holds up to 28 MUFE eyeshadow singles and, as you can see from the pictures, it holds any other type of makeup in a metallic casing.
You can feel the quality in all aspects of this palette and I haven’t even told you the best part: this baby is only $14! Yes, you read that right. Compare that pricing to the $28 you can expect to pay for the much smaller Z-palette and I really don’t know how MUFE managed to do it.
The only thing the Z-palette has over this is that the Z-palette has a clear window so you can easily see the products inside the palette. However, this isn’t a deal breaker at all for me and it’s nothing a simple label won’t fix.
Unfortunately, the palette is continually out of stock but if you sign up for the e-mail notification at Sephora, like I did, you’ll be able to snag it as soon as it comes back in stock. I love having my makeup securely in one place and I can’t recommend it enough!
