Review: Stick With It Palette
Free form palettes are all the rage in the last few years. Many of us ladies are looking to consolidate all of the single eyeshadows or blushes in our collection because we have collected quite a lot and the individual items take up a lot of room. Or maybe you are a makeup artist and you don't wanna lug around a few different palettes or singles, you just want to pop what you are gonna need into one palette and go to your gig. One thing that can be a bit aggravating about many free form palettes is that they are magnetic, so it makes depotting the individual eyeshadows quite a process because you have to attach a magnet onto the back of it. Stick With It is a new type of palette on the market that doesn't require all hassle...
Stick With It is relatively new to the market, and it is quite unique in the world of free form palettes. This palette has a sticky surface, so all you need to do is get the pan of product out of it's original packaging and pop it right onto that surface. When you first get the palette it has some sort of white card-stock type material attached to the sticky surface to keep it fresh through transit. All you have to do is peel the material off of the palette and it is ready to go. It has been noticed that this material stuck to the sides can leave behind small white particles, all you have to do is scratch that right off with your fingernail. I didn't personally experience this, but I know that they are going to do away with the material that is stuck to the sides to avoid this in the future.
I stuck a few of my blushes and eyeshadows in my palette. The items I have in here are from MAC (depots and pro pans), Rock & Republic, Essence (depot), Laura Mercier, Tarte... quite a selection. Some already have magnets on the back but most of these don't. Whether your product has a magnet or not it will work for this palette. If it does have a magnet on the back, the sticky part of the palette does not affect that or leave the sticky behind. Also, once you stick the pan in the palette you can remove it and stick something else in it's place. Totally customizable and re-customizable.
As you can see, this palette can fit a lot of product. The smaller eyeshadows are mostly MAC so if I were to pack them in, it could easily hold just as much or more than a MAC palette just on one side alone.
I like that Stick With It is dual sided because it makes it easier to go mobile with it and save room. I intentionally split my blushes and eyeshadows into their own side. Partially because I like to feel organized and partially because it is just easier to look on one side as I am concentrating on one thing. Another thing that makes this palette so ideal for travel is because us makeup hoarders want to bring more than necessary for a weekend/week long trip and this can allow you to bring that extra blush that you were going to leave behind.
Another great part of the palette is that it includes a divider or sorts... You close your palette and this divider keeps product from transferring to the other side of the palette, which could get messy in a hurry. Speaking of messes... ALL of the palettes I own are a bit messy, which is to be expected because there is a natural fallout of product that occurs when you are using your makeup. The brilliant thing about this palette is that you can clean it with a wet wash cloth or a cotton ball with alcohol on it and it wipes right up AND STAYS STICKY. Such a revolutionary palette.
And also... What is more motivating than the name of the palette itself. Stick With It is a nice mantra of sorts... Don't give up on your dreams. If you see these words first thing everyday when you are mindlessly doing your morning routine it is bound to sink in and cause a positive domino effect in your life. :)
Closed this palette measures 7" x 3 1/2" (so the inside is roughly 6 1/2" x 3" of usable surface on each side). Stick With It Palette retails for $28 on www.StickWithItPalette.com and is starting to be distributed on other sites as well. Another thing that I want to mention about this company is that the creator/owner of the company is an ex-military woman. Most of you know that I am a Navy Wife and I know that a GOOD portion of my readers are military wives as well. I am so proud to be able to support a company/person that has kept me supported and protected during their time in service. Thank you Stick With It Palette!
