There have been many companies lately that have been trying to design the perfect make-your-own palettes. Brands like Ben Nye and La Femme have empty magnetic palettes with pre-set wells to perfectly pop in refills or change out colors. The only problem is that you are limited to one size only. However, these 2, as well as a few others, use the same size so you can interchange brands. But what if you want different sizes, or you have items that are not magnetic?
The most popular option is the Z Palette, which is also magnetic, but is open inside. You can use any size you please, and tetris however many random pans you can fit in the space. This is obviously a plus, not to mention they provide magnetic stickers so even your non metal pans can stick inside. This is definitely a step forward for makeup artists and enthusiasts alike, we tend to collect more makeup than we have room for and anything we can do to consolidate is helpful.
But then comes the NEXT step forward: The Stick With It Palette. Creator Monetta Plassermeyer really hit the nail on the head with this baby. She took every thing that you could love or hate about other empty palettes out there, and improved them!
The main benefit of this product is that it is NOT MAGNETIC! The interior is lined with a specially designed adhesive, so your makeup and tools actually stick right to it! Just wipe the bottom off and press the item directly to the surface, and you have an instant palette. And if you get makeup on it and it begins to lose its stickiness, just wipe it with alcohol and it is just like new!
It is double sided! When you open it up, product can go on either side so you can fit even more of your items inside! Take that Z Palette!
It is a great way to keep the items you need right then and there handy, because it is not magnetic you can put ANYTHING on it! Lipstick/gloss/mascara tubes, pencils, spatulas, you name it! They stick right on and hold tight! The rectangular design allows for longer items and not just round pans. Especially if you are working in the field and you have limited counter space, this really helps keep track of everything and have it available to use.
If you are worried about putting pans of blushes and eyeshadows face to face when the palette closes, it comes with a plastic divider. Just place it in, shut the palette, and none of your beautiful colors will rub off on one another.
People outside of the makeup industry can use it! Artists, architects, jewelry makers, any job that requires lots of small tools can benefit from this palette.
She really thought of everything! I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with Monetta. I love hearing about her inspiration and design process. This truly is a revolutionary product, keep an eye out for new sizes and variations!
