Exclusive to Sephora’s website, Make Up Forever offers various sizes of its empty magnetic palettes. Their large magnetic palettes (once only available via their stores) have been a long favorite of mine. I store all of my depotted shadows in the original large palettes, but don’t travel with them. The new smaller sizes piqued my interest as the small Z-Palettes I have and travel with daily are beginning to wear down.
The smaller sizes are just as sturdy as the original with regard to how it’s constructed. Though, it’s not without differences. The smaller sizes are thicker than the original (see the picture below), but this extra width is to hold the added foam in the new palette. There is a layer of foam underneath the magnet and a foam pad to place on top of the shadows for protection. The extra width also makes the palette easier to open, which was an issue with the original palette.
The 3.3 inch size holds four Make Up Forever pans (nine Mac/Urban Decay size shadows) and the 5.7 inch size holds twelve Make Up Forever pans (twenty Mac/Urban Decay size shadows); each are priced at $14. As this palette is exclusive to Sephora and online only, it’s often out of stock. I suggest signing up to receive an email if you’re interested in purchasing the palettes.
