I have been trying for MONTHS to get my hands on a Makeup Forever empty palette. They are always sold out on Sephora. So I finally got mine from Frends Beauty (you may have to be a member to get it but it's free to sign up and you get a 10% discount for being a member anyway so it's a win win). Because I love Makeup Geek and Anastasia single shadows so much I pretty much can't have enough magnetized palettes. I've had my Z Palette for a while, which I also bought from Frends, and I really do love it. It's sturdy, it's cute, you can see what's in it........ but it's $20 for an empty palette. Am I the only one that didn't care for that? So when I seen people using the MUFE one I looked it up and it was $14. Yea $14. Like I said it's sold out all the time.
This review is gonna be easy and fast.
Z Palette holds 27 shadows
MUFE holds 32 shadows
Shadows that are the size of like standard shadows. I know that Makeup Forever single shadows are quite a bit bigger.
This palette is sleek, black, and metal. It has foam piece in it to protect the shadows but I took it out cause it was annoying me. It also comes with a clear protector sheet as well that you can also remove.
Like I said this holds 32 standard size shadows. Which is 5 more than the large Z Palette. However, you can't see whats in here until you open it. Which is fine for me right now cause it holds all my Makeup Geek and Anastasia Beverly Hills shadows pretty much, so it's my "go to" palette. Later on I may have to label it.
Z Palette I still love and use, it only holds 27 shadows but I use mine for blush and face powders now. Like MAC pro pans, or depotted blushes, and some ABH highlight and contour powders. So it's still in good use. What I love about Z Palettes are the fact that they are so cute, come in different sizes, colors, and patterns, and you can see through the top so you always know what you're grabbing.
If you were starting out and actually have a lot of shadows I would get the MUFE metal palette only because it holds more and it's cheaper. However if you want to display your palettes or just like cute things than splurge and get the Z Palette they are both great and work the same.
