Sturdy palette

If you’re looking for something to blend the perfect foundation shade as you pretend you’re Michealangelo and your skin is the Sistine chapel (in dire need of a little restoration), and you don’t want to risk breaking the random heirloom china plate your great Aunt left you, or if you deplore the idea of those sneaky little, evil BPA’s traveling from that plastic tray that you know you’re using right now, then this is the palette for you. It will allow you to seamlessly blend that new color you bought that you thought was going to be the holy grail foundation, but was just a shade too dark, and will also simulanteously balance out the guilt you might feel for spending your kid’s birthday money on an expensive foundation, only because you happened to go by Sephora before you made it to the bank to deposit little Jr’s cash to his college fund. It works perfectly for mixing in that wrinkle-reducing, line-smoothing, spot-removing, stop-your-husband-from-cheating miracle substance, into the foundation for that oh-so perfect consistency. Would recommend.

Okay, ignore the product pic….

You aren’t getting three palettes, you are getting one. In this case, I ordered the medium, which is good enough for working on one client/actor/show. For the medium size, there is plenty of space to mix and blend product. I can’t actually see myself wanting to hold a larger palette most of the time. The small size was too small…so maybe the Goldilocks’ scenario fits well here. It’s the standard piece of metal, it holds firm, and it can be sanitized, just as would be expected. If you need something else, then I guess you have to keep looking, but this works for me.

Size Confusion

When I ordered this item. I didn’t think that the palette was super small. The picture can be confusing and for some reason, I thought I was getting the palette in the middle, shown in the picture. The palette still works and it’s super easy to clean. I also realized that the small palette is easy to hold as your putting your makeup on or on someone else. Another thing is this item is super light, not heavy when you want to take it with you.

great but tiny!

I did not quite realize how small this really was (its the size of a small female hand)but it is made just as well as my larger ones so I will get use out of itgood deal but I will definitely order the medium size next time.

Small is great personal palette

The small palette is perfect for personal use. I am not an artist, so I cannot say if this is good for more than one client, but I know that it is perfect for me. I love the ability to free up the back of my hand to staying clean and useful during the makeup process. I am also able to experiment with super high pigmentation products, like HD blushes, without them staining my hand really red/pink/purple for a day.Not a necessity but definitely useful. I use it every time I apply makeup for primers and foundations; and occasionally when I use liquid HD blushes (e. g. Elf HD blush).

Very nice little palette

This is small in size, as per the product description. I purchased the small one, which is just what I needed. For mixing small amount of makeup.

Perfect size!

I bought the smallest one, needing a clean flat surface to mix concealers and other makeup. This is easy to rinse off and clean, and small enough to hold comfortably in my hand.

Very tiny

I should have looked at the measurements if they are available. It is superrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr tiny. I definitely thought it was going to be small but not this small. I wish I would have ordered the next size up or even the large because of how small it is.
