This post has been a week in the uploading due to various glitches I’ve experienced with blogger so it may be a touch briefer than initially intended given that this must be the 3rd time I’ve written it. I received my Unii Palette recently and thought I’d give you a little first look before I do a run down and comparison between this, the Z Palette and the MAC Pro Palette. Above you can see l-r the box the palette comes in, a magnetic strip which can be cut to shape and stuck on your depotted products to enable them to be used with the palette and the unii palette itself. The magnetic strip is a very nice touch as it makes the kit that you buy an all inclusive package. You don’t need to buy anything to make this work for you. one side of the strip is self adhesive and the other is writable so you can label the products you depot in case you forget what they are.
Below you can see the palette inside. In white I think it really resembles an apple product in it’s sleek design.
Inside is a steel magnetic plate which can be removed for cleaning, a rubber bumper which can be removed to accommodate more shadows but I like the added security it gives. You also get a “thumb grip” magnet which could be used as a separator or again removed to get in more shadows. Another nice touch is the mirror which you don’t get in many custom palettes.
So far I’ve used this one to house some of my favourite MAC eyeshadows. Without the thumb grip I could fit in 14, only one less than the MAC Pro Palette and the Unii is a bit smaller and a lot more secure. If you’re wary of how to depot or use the palette at all you’ll be glad to know the box it comes in unfolds to reveal step by step instructions on how to depot and what will fit. On the site they also list a huge amount of brands that fit in the palette including travel sized brushes which is something I would never have thought of myself but would be a really handy addition if you’re travelling with this palette.
Overall it feels like a really substantial piece of kit. Indestructible almost which makes it ideal for travelling with. You can buy these for $29 each from http://uniicosmetics.com/ I bought two and including shipping they cost me just under £40 for both with current exchange rates.
Have any of you tried the Unii Palette? They are available in various colours and I’m just not sure which to go for next…
