What’s in my other Z palette? ft. Makeup Geek, Morphe and Benefit

Here we are, a little later than usual due to major laptop issues but I thought I would round up what’s in my large Z palette after my small Z palette post went down so well!

I actually bought this large palette to depot my Tarte Holiday blockbuster set then realised it didn’t fit. I was going to send it back then ended up buying a contour pan that didn’t have a home so kept it and got the extra large palette to depot the Tarte set!

First up, I have two Makeup Geek contour powders in the shades Infidelity (cool fair) and Break Up (cool porcelain). I was so excited when these came to BeautyBay.com and they do not disappoint! Both are cool toned, finely milled and lovely and pigmented. They do kick up a bit of powder when I dip my brush in but are so easily blended I’ll forgive them!  

Moving down to the bottom of the palette I have a Benefit mixed blush in Dandelion and Gimme Fever which I depotted from a Christmas set I got a few years ago called the Groovy Kind-a-Love set. I haven’t actually used this, how bad it that! It’s a little too shimmery for my liking but I’ll give it a go now it’s in a palette I reach for daily!

Over to the right hand side I have my Makeup Geek blush in Spellbound. I wasn’t overly fussed on the other shades but I love this one! It’s a matte pink colour and actually really subtle even though it has the same Makeup Geek pigmentation!

Back up to the top row then I have six eyeshadows, five from Makeup Geek and one Morphe single eyeshadow! The top row is Makeup Geek Bedrock and Concrete Jungle then Morphe Granite and the bottom row is the Makeup Geek foiled finish in Starry Eyed and Mesmerized and finally another matte brown shade (my fave) Americano. I will probably switch my small Z palette around a bit now I have some more shades and I love Americano so that definitely needs to go in it! I wore Mesmerized out on Saturday night and it was gorgeous on! So shimmery and zero fallout! I also need to get my hands on more of the Morphe single eyeshadows, they are really pigmented and so affordable!  My continual stalking of BeautyBay shows no signs of letting up!

Sorry the formatting of this post looks weird, Chrome wont open for me, think I will have to get a new laptop :(

What do you think of my extras? As always I’m open to recommendations J

  8. Thank you for sharing this Danielle! I definitely enjoyed seeing what you stored on your smaller Z palette. The Makeup Geek Contour Powders and blush look amazing! For some reason I can just tell from the image how creamy they are. Also Starry Eyed looks like the most beautiful shimmery eyeshadow - why do I not own this?!.:D

  10. I have Spellbound too - love the formula but I agree the shade selection could be better (or maybe not as I'd end up buying so many haha) I'm such a fan of the contour powders too xx

  15. I have yet to purchase any single eyeshadows or even depot my palettes but maybe because I don't have an overly large collection. I've read so many great reviews about Makeup Geek's contour powder, definitely in my list to purchase.
