Z Palette

I have seen these before on Pixiwoo videos and have always managed to resist.  However, on the last Products of the Week video I saw these again and decided I needed one in my life.  So I actually bought 2.  I got the small one and the big one, both in zebra print. 

For some reason Blogger is showing the picture on its side even though it was the right way up before.  Grrrr!

Anyway you get the idea.  I wanted one of these mainly because it means I can store blusher and eyeshadow together and make them much more accessable in the mornings when I'm getting ready.  I find the Mac blusher palettes too large and consequently I don't use my pan blushers but tend to reach for the ones I have still in the pot.  So, in a way, this will help me to be able to use up more of my makeup.  Score!!

The palettes themselves are incredibably sturdy and the lid closes very securely on them.  I have filled my small one and will leave the larger one for a while yet.  I'll probably put more blushers in the large one ao that I can get at even more items in the same palette.

So here is a picture of the palette opened.  Again Blogger has published it with a different orientation than it had ariginally.

The shadows are:

Top Row:

The 2 shadows below Omega are:
Satin Taupe

and the blusher is Well Dressed.

The Omega, Twinks and Satin Taupe are all brand new and I couldn't wait to get them in their new home:)

Finally here is a picture of the large palette on its side.  I still have the wrapper on it as I'm playing with the smaller one first:)

The small one cost £12.95 and the large one was £18.55.  I suppose these are expensive and I hope they turn out to be worth the money.  I know I could take my Mac palettes apart to achieve my aim of being able to store blusher and eyeshadow in the same palette but where's the fun in that?  I want to have something that does the job and is nice to look at.  The Z Palette ticks both these boxes.

I bought them from Makeup Provisions and I have to say their service was incredible.  I only ordered these yesterday and they arrived today!!  That is amazing in my opinion.  The postage was rather steep at £9 but they were sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which I think costs £5 plus the normal postage.  So taking that into account it's not too steep after all.  You get what you pay for at the end of the day!

Bargain of the Week

Today as I was walking through my local shopping centre my attention was drawn to the sign below:

Marks and Spencer have, as their offer of the week, half price on all Tess Daly products.  I thought it would be rude not to try a few items.  I have looked longingly at these products before and thought they are slightly too pricey.  Perfect opportunity now, at half price, to give them a whirl.  So I purchased the following 2 items:

Daly Face Glow and Daly Body Glow.  Each of these normally cost £9.50 each so today I got both of these for £9.50.  A much more civilized price!!

And here is the Daly Face Glow swatched on my hand and also pictured open. It looks like a lovely highlighter and I can't wait to give it a proper trial.

Next up we have the Daly Body Glow rubbed onto my hand and also pictured open.  It gives a lovely glow to the skin and would be perfect for any upcoming Christmas parties.  Oh and it smells amazing too!!

Finally I used a Boots No 7 £5 voucher to buy a No 7 Eye Makeup Remover.  I have never used this before and I love using these vouchers to try out new stuff.  With the voucher this only cost me £2.75.  Bargain!!
