So recently it's come to light that there is a wider audience looking for empty makeup palettes. Your resident beauty blogger is here to help. I don't know if I've went in depth before about the ones I use now, and have used for the last 2 years or so but my choice is always Make Up For Ever Metal palettes. There are different sizes, and they are actually really inexpensive compared to others on the market.
MUFE palettes are hard to catch in stock a lot but I get mine from Frends Beauty mostly. You might have to be a part of their free membership program in order to get to the Make Up For Ever page and if so you'll save 10% on your purchases so it's like a win/win. I've seen these on Sephora's website a lot, granted they are always sold out on there. They're available on the Make Up For Ever website as well. They offer these in X-Large, Large, Medium, and Small. The price range is from $10 to $14. The small is $10 and the XL is $14. As you can tell it's a good deal. The XL will hold 45 standard size (ABH, MUG, MAC etc) shadows. I also use it for my ABH Glow Kits and bigger powders like that. The Large will hold 32 standard size shadows (I'm speaking of the normal circle shadow, I can't speak for square shadows). I have all of my JD Glow shadows in a Large palette. Which are quite a bit bigger than a standard shadow so they're closer to the size of a standard blush from like MAC for example, not as big but close and it fits 18 of those shadows. The Medium size will hold 20 standard size shadows and the Small will hold 9 shadows.
Moving on from the MUFE palettes, some other options are Coastal Scents. The have Custom Palettes. Which are even more inexpensive than the MUFE ones. These have shadow dividers in them though. So if you prefer not to have that, I'm not sure if it can be removed. There are plenty of sizes and some have clear lids so that you can see what's inside your palette. I have the 12 shadow clear lid palette and it's only around $6. They're worth checking out in my opinion. They hold standard size shadows because their individual shadows are standard size.
Etsy has some really cool options for magnetic palettes. Some are incredibly expensive but some are actually really cute with very cute designs for a more affordable price. I don't have any so I can't tell you what the quality is on those or how strong the magnet is in them. Juvia's Place also offers a magnetic palette for $15 (and remember there's always a code for Juvia's Place). Makeup Geek offers the Travel Size Vault palette which only holds 9 shadows but it's really nice and on sale for $9 right now.
So magnetic palettes aren't hard to find, more and more companies are putting them out which I love seeing. My first choice will always be Make Up For Ever until I'm convinced otherwise, but I'm very interested in Juvia's Place and I also have had very good luck with Coastal Scents custom palettes. So I hope this was helpful if you're looking into getting some or branching out and happy shopping!
