I want to be SO SO SO excited by this

....
but I'm having a hard time due to past experiences of crumminess. I lurrrvves me new ways to save space within my kit and the Z Palette is making me slightly excited at the chance to fit ANY shaped depoted make up, up in it.


This exclusive custom palette is perfect for display and color comparison. Its outstanding sleek and clean design offers an open magnetic base to fit any size eye shadow, blush, bronzer, or even foundation! You can keep all your favorites from all different makeup brands in one place. The compact finish is made of a coated high quality matte paper, which is easy to clean and is 70% recyclable. Best of all with its unique acrylic clear window you can see exactly what’s inside! Replace colors as often as you would like to your preference.


AHHHH mazing right? Don't get too overly excited just yet...the outer casing is made from "coated, high quality matte PAPER!".  I had a similar palette to this one that I spent about $30 and within weeks the edges of the paper on the palette started curling and I was left with a palette that left my poor lil eyeshadows all exposed for the world to see...ultimately leading to the demise of a few of my favourite shades.  I want to love this palette because it's such a great idea, but I think I'm going to hold out until they come up with a more durable one. 

That being said...this palette would be fantastic for someone that doesn't have to lug their make up around to different places all the time.  The cutesy zebra print would look fantastic sitting on your vanity and it really is a great idea.

If you want...you can check out this fantastical invention on the Z Palette website where you can order them in different sizes, ranging in price from $14 to $20.

Humidity Proof Eye Shadow Tips

Oily eyelids is a problem for just about everyone, no matter what skin type the rest of your face belongs to. 

First off, if you apply an eye cream to your eye area and you normally apply it to your lid as well...skip the lid!  Since the job of the eye cream is to hydrate and plump the eye area, putting eye cream on your lids can make your lids appear puffy and increase oil production.

Secondly, as you powder your face to set your foundation..DON'T FORGET THE EYES! Take a fluffy eyeshadow brush and press the translucent powder into your eyelids to help absorb any excess oil before shadow application.

If all else fails, reach for an eyelid primer.  I never apply eyeshadow to a bare lid because I find the colour can become blotchy on a hot day and the colour never wears as vibrant and true as it does with a base. 

A cult favourite for eyelid primers is Urban Decays Eyeshadow Primer Potion (UDPP for all you makeup junkies).   A little goes a long way with this magic in a bottle potion, simply dab a little onto your eyelid, blend with your fingers (remember! ring finger is best for eye area, provides least amount of tugging, resulting in less opportunity for wrinkles) allow to dry for a few seconds and then apply your shadow as you normally would.  Using this product just once will turn you into a junkie and you'll never feel the same way about eye shadow again.  Your colours will wear longer, more vibrant, and most importantly CREASE FREE!


At only $18 this product is a steal since you'll need less shadow to get your desired look, and not to mention that a little bit goes a long long long way. You can check it out here for more deets.


Some other shadow primers that come in a close second place include...
The new NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base slightly pricier at $24.

An honourable mention can go out to Benefit and their Lemon Aid lid primer.  I love this product because the yellowishness in it helps to take away the redness in  my lids and I even wear it alone for the no make up make up look.

Can be found here for only $20 bucks!  Also found at Shoppers Drug Mart with Beauty Boutiques.


The only one I would suggest that you stay far far away from is the Smashbox Lid Primer.

I've tried many, many times to love this product since I usually luurve Smashbox products, but everytime it underachieves and with a price tag of $20 it's not worth it at all.

Highbeam by Benefit

Seriously. This does several things: in gives me the best dewy look ever. In the summer it gives me a lovely, non-shiny luster that tops off my tan. In the winter months it prevents me from having that "my face is a powder puff" uber dry look. I don't go a day with out this.



Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub:

This product is fantastic. It has small rough particles to smooth out the skin. It does leave a very slightly oily feel on the skin after washing, but that is simply due to the moisturizing components. My face looks visibly less oily after using the scrub just once. This stuff works wonders on trouble skin.



Estee Lauder Verite Moisture relief

I have very sensitive skin and tried different moisturizers, but this is the only one that I didn't break out from. I have been using it for over 2 years now and don't plan on switching to another brand. Oh by the way, this stuff is fragrance free too. Highly recommend for those who have sensitive skin.



Contact me at bagabooty@gmail.com with your address and it'll be shipped out asap.
CONGRATS!

More contests coming soon...thanks to everyone that participated.
