The creation of the freestyle palette is the next best thing since eyeshadow palettes was created. Who has the room for piles and piles of eyeshadow pots in their kit or vanity? No one. To fix this problem we depot shadows and we buy empty eyeshadow palettes to fit our shadows. Most shadows are 26mm or 36mm round pans, unfortunately, many companies like to be creative and make their shadows different shapes and sizes *sigh*
They great thing is, many freestyle palettes available now. Some are long and some are even round.
The UNII (pronounced like unique, without the Q) Palette, however, a very different. Created by a makeup lover in Southern California, it’s design is like it’s name UNIQUE.
My first impression of the UNII Palette was that it looked simpler to a Nintendo DS. It’s glitter infused translucent shell and rounded edges gives it a stylish electronic look. Inside it has a full mirror covered with plastic for protection and a magnetic bottom. But wait.. there’s MORE! We have all experienced depoting our shadows and finding the pan is not magnetic. The UNII Palette creator thought of this. The UNII palettes includes a sheet of magnet-receptive material called the ‘Not-A-Magnet sheet. While it looks like a sheet of magnet, it is not a magnet. Magnet to magnet doesn’t stick as well as magnet to metal. Since the UNII palettes has a magnet inside the base, you don’t want a magnet on the bottom of your pan. The sheet can be cut to fit your shadows and placed inside.

Another great thing about the UNII Palette is the logo shaded thumb grip that comes with in. It’s small, cute and doesn’t take up a lot of space on the palette. The thumb grip adheres to the base and can be moved to any position inside. It can be moved so that left handed and right handed makeup lovers can easily hold the UNII Palette in one hand.
