When I created my perfect go-to everyday Z-Palette I made sure I picked a variety of colors that I could do pretty much any look I could ever desire with. If I travel anywhere this is the palette I take.
Row One Swatches
From left to right: MAC Blanc Type, MAC Nylon, MUG Shimma Shimma, MAC Jest, MAC All That Glitters, MAC Expensive Pink, MAC Woodwinked.
Row Two Swatches
From left to right: MAC Kid, MAC Omega, MAC Wedge, Mac Espresso, MAC Swiss Chocolate, MAC Deep Damson, MAC Cranberry.
Row Three Swatches
From left to right: MUG Peach Smoothie, MUG Creme Brulee, MUG Frappe, MUG Cocoa Bear, MUG Pretentious, MUG Ritzy, MAC Fig 1.
Row Four Swatches
From left to right: MUG Desert Sands, MUG Preppy, MAC Passionate, MUG Cupcake, MUG In The Spotlight (foiled), MUG Mesmerized (foiled).
Overall, this palette gets a lot of use. I love all of the shades in here. I enjoy mixing and matching them in a variety of ways. Although, it should be noted though that MAC Blanc Type, and MAC Kid were both discontinued. However, some stores may still have them in stock. I was able to get my hands on a back up of Blanc Type.
One of my favorite super fun color combo in this palette is pairing a tiny bit of MAC passionate blown out gently in the upper crease, and then MUG Ritzy on the lid. I use a mixture of other matte shades to darken up the crease area as well. Highlight the inner corner with either Nylon or Shimma Shimma. Throw on some winged liner, lashes, and it’s good to go.
Lets have a little vote in the comments which formula do you guys prefer the most? MAC or MUG? Also, if you have a Z- Palette blog post link it in the comments and I’ll check it out! 🙂
