The New Pro Z-Palette

Z-Palette has released a third addition to their palette range, called the Pro Palette. The Pro Palette is exactly the same length as the Large Palette, but about 3/4" wider. This may seem like a frivolous adjustment for a whole new palette range, but as someone who has used Z Palettes for a while now, I can say that an extra 3/4" can make the difference between another row of something fitting or not.

For those of you not familiar with what a Z Palette is, it is a magnetic open palette that you can place any kind of metal pan makeup product in. You can see in these photos that I have a blush (Kevyn Aucoin 'Doline') and eyeshadow (MUFE #47) in their pan form. These don't have magnets on the bottom, but snap in just in their pans because the actual palette is magnetized. This is handy because you can put an unlimited number of product combinations in these. Going on a trip? Throw in a few eyeshadows and blushes. Want to depot all of your MAC shadows? This will hold ~30 of them!

Here is a size comparison with the Large Palette (filled with my Makeup Designory shadows). As you can see, they are the same length, but the Pro Palette is slightly wider.

Here is a comparison between the Pro Palette and Small Palette.

These palettes can be purchased at The new Pro Palette retails for $28.00 and currently only comes in black. If you are new to Z-Palette, I would definitely choose the Pro Palette over the Large Palette, for size sake.

Do you like keeping products in palettes or individually?

  1. wooh love the z palettes such a good idea!

  2. I have also a leo-print Z-palette.. so cute :)
    and its much easier than storing the eyeshadows individually !!!

    Plus a palette with leoprint looks much better .. LOL

    xo, Anni

  3. The Pro palette is also deeper than other version, making it better suited to store pressed face powders, blushes, bronzers, etc.

  4. I currently have both the small & large Z palettes, and I absolutely love them! The fact that they have a clear lid so that you can easily see what products are in which palette is such a smart design element.

  5. I have not de-potted any of my shadows. I love having individual ones to just throw in my make up bag for an overnight or a weekend. I know that I will definitely break down and go on a de-potting rampage soon. It'll be nice to customize a palette that I can take with me wherever...

  6. Ahh I've been thinking of getting a Z Palette for the longest time ever! Just wondering.. what kind of material are they made of? I totally feel like depotting my Nyx shadows :)

  7. Are the new palettes deeper? I depotted my Benefit Hoola and it's too thick so the lid doesn't close very well :(

  8. great comparisons!
    I just got the leopard large z palette at IMATS. so pretty.

  11. I love the idea of using a palette. I'm new to MAC and it's hard to tell which shadow is which now that I have about 10 of them.
