The 411: How to Actually Use the Z Palette
If you are a voracious reader and watcher of all things beauty on the Internet, then you’ve probably heard plenty of bloggers, vloggers, and gurus raving about something called a “Z Palette.” No, it’s not some weird bizarre new beauty gizmo that will leave you confused. Rather, a Z Palette is the go-to product for simple, customizable organization of your eye shadows or other pan makeup powder products. The empty Z palette is pre-magnetized, which means that as long as your shadow pans have a magnetic backing, they’re ready to go – and if they don’t, you can simply buy backings to stick on!
Okay, at this point, you might be wondering whether or not the pan shadows you have are magnetized or not. Generally, unless the shadows are advertised as having magnetized backs when you purchased them, they won’t be ready for use in the Z Palette. In fact, very few brands actually offer pre-magnetized shadow pans. You aren’t out of luck, however. Here’s how to make Z Palette work for you.
Turn Any Single Pan Shadow Into a Magnetized One
Z Palette products are particularly perfect for one of our favorite loose pan shadows, the Stilazzi shadows. They are extremely pigmented and affordable. Plus, they’re available in both matte and pearl formulations.
So how do you magnetize these single shadows? The simplest way is by using our magnetic Z Palette stickers. Using these stickers seriously couldn’t be any easier to use. Simply peel off the paper backing and stick the magnet onto the bottom of the shadow. Then it’s ready for use in your Z Palette.
There are other options to magnetize pan shadows, the most popular one being hot gluing a refrigerator magnet to the bottom of your shadow. However, we at Frends Beauty don’t recommend that option. The magnet rarely fits right and many women have found themselves accidentally breaking their shadows using this method. The most surefire way is to use the stickers designed specifically for Z Palette.
The Benefits Of Using a Z Palette and Buying Single Pan Shadows
Sometimes customers balk at the idea of purchasing a palette that doesn’t contain any product, but hear us out. Not only can you use the Z Palette to create the exact customized eye shadow palette of your dreams, but investing in a Z Palette will dramatically reduce the amount of money you spend on eye shadows. Single pan eye shadows that aren’t housed in a plastic case are much cheaper to produce than those that are; hence, they cost less and are most likely an inferior product. Plus, the Z Palette is available in an array of colors and designs, making it a fun new addition to your vanity.

DIY: Pans not magnetic? Cheap fix!
I want to shop, but I’m fighting it! Since I realized I have only four and a half months to go until the end of No Buy year two, I’ve changed my financial goal. I had a plan to pay $100 per month on my credit card, to have it paid off my the end of 2020. I now resolve to pay $200 a month on my credit card, to have it paid off by June! I have already paid $100 in January; I paid an additional $50 today on it, and that was fulfilling. I want to pay $50 again next week, and then $200 per month going forward. Current balance is $846.80. Also, since I finished using all my mini face creams, I’m now using up my mini primers and foundations. I’m currently using a little Hourglass Mineral Veil sample in a glass bottle that came in a 2017 Sephora Luxury Play! bag (the one that came with the Tarot cards), and a mini Touch in Sol foundation that came in an Ipsy bag. I’m starting to enjoy using primer and foundation every day, which I would usually be too lazy to do. What I’m watching right now: (in my free time, I watch No Buy videos on an endless loop) – That Galloway Girl – Get Ready With Me – Bad Habits & Positive Changes – May 20, 2019. What I’m tempted by now. I’m ashamed to say it. Aliexpress. I began looking at it again. I look at it and see endless amounts of pretty and very low priced things. Then I think, what’s the harm of buying as the prices are low. But there are endless things I like, and there would be no way to limit myself. Before I know it I would have spent a lot. I’ll set myself a limit, like I am only allowed one item a week, but I would not be able to stick to it. I have to avoid looking at it completely. It’s not a good venue for me. A good venue for me is Dollar General. I feel safe going there, as the inventory is small and predictable. I don’t impulse buy there. I buy what I need and a bag of potato chips!
