I love makeup. Obvious statement, right? What I don’t love is tons of scattered makeup items cluttering my space! That is why makeup palettes are appealing. But how often do you love every color in a pre-made palette? Customizing a palette is everything to me! I’ve had many customizable makeup palettes and magnetic cases but none come close to my current fave. I got these in September so they’ve been through serious testing. Introducing the iPalette and iPalette Mini by OFRA Cosmetics!
OFRA Cosmetics iPalette
I’ll start with my favorite, the OFRA Cosmetics iPalette. Being around 8″ x 4 1/2″ the iPalette has plenty of space for makeup pans but is still easy enough to take on the go. You get 8 square eyeshadows and 2 blush shades from OFRA with the iPalette to get you started. Because the palette is a flat surface you can mix and match different sizes of metal makeup pans so you don’t have to skip your favorites. I love that the cover slides off instead of flipping open.
The iPalette is no cheap quality, flimsy makeup case. This is a sleek, hard magnetic case that solves 2 issues I’ve had with makeup cases in the past. Durability and cleanliness. I’ve traveled with my iPalette and had it fall off the counter during a cruise and it still looks new. Nothing has stained it either. I just wipe with a paper towel when cleanup is needed. I plan to get more so I can neatly store all my single shadows, blush and foundation pans. I have 2 of these so far. The iPalette is $49.95 retail.
My Main Uses: Primary makeup kit, 3+ days of travel, makeup drawer organization
OFRA Cosmetics iPalette Mini
The iPalette Mini is like the iPalette’s cute kid sister. This one is about 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and includes 6 rectangle eyeshadows to get you started for $29.95 retail. I take this with me on my busy blogger days when I’m running to multiple events, meetings and full day conferences.
The size makes it easy to fit into even my small purses and clutches and because the case is magnetic I don’t worry about my makeup moving around. Like the larger one, the iPalette Mini also has a slide off cover, is a hard case and wipes clean. I also like keeping this on my makeup table to neatly store my most used eyeshadow and blush.
My Main Uses: 1-2 day travel, in the purse for touch-ups, neat vanity display
I think it’s awesome that you get starter shades with them and that you can put any metal makeup pans you want in them. I’m a bit of a control freak so this gives me the control over selecting what I want, where I want. I personally favor the iPalette because it has more space…so more variety! If you have a lot of single shadows and blush like I do, the iPalette is for you. If you want to pop a few favorite shades in your purse the iPalette Mini is probably best for you.
