Yaby Freestyle Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 30 - 2011

Another one of my IMATS purchases from earlier in the year was this Yaby Freestyle palette… ‘freestyle’ because it holds any shape of pan in the same way the more well-known z-palettes do.

Being a Yaby palette, it’s not exactly large… at around 15cm (longest side), it’s smaller than MAC, Z-Palette, Unii and MUFE palettes but as my end goal is to fill it with Yaby products (which are teeny tiny too), I don’t have a problem with the compact sizing.

Mine is currently filled with a few randoms (5 Yaby eyeshadows, a Yaby brow powder, 1 MAC eyeshadow, a Yaby blusher and a Stila eyeshadow to be precise!).

The palette is well-constructed with solid hinges, strong magnets and sturdy housing.  The mirror is large and without any obvious distortions.

It’s pretty much a delight to take away on holiday and I can’t wait to fill it with more baby Yaby goodies!

I bought my Yaby Freestyle Palette from The Makeup Artist Boutique (who were exhibiting at IMATS).  It is priced at £10.99 from their web store.

    The palette looks to be a good travel size, not too large but at the same time not too small.

    Absolutely loving the forth shade down, gorgeous red!

    I was looking for a good freestyle palette, so far I think I’m going with Unii, though.

    I took the eyeshadow pan holders out of my Yaby palette and stuck a magnetic sheet to the bottom – perfect for holding blush refills!

    Hi!

    I’ve had one of these for a few years now, and they are brilliant. The mirror isn’t actually a mirror, it’s stainless steel and designed to have pigment mixed on it. It does function more or less as a mirror though. My palette has been around the block a bit and it’s doing really well. The top and bottom get scratched and these do get grubby, so that’s something to think of. I have a mixture of depotted eyeshadows and blusher in there, with mixed pans of OCC lip tars as well.

    If you find anything leaks or falls out, it can be cleaned up with a wet wipe and this will remove all but the worst stains.I advise taking out as many pans as possible every so often and wiping the whole thing down (on the sajme hygiene priniple as washing your brushes). You would be AMAZED how much dust and stray powder collects and sticks in the corners and beneath the pans. This goes doubly so if you store (semi) liquids in there as well-even if you think they haven’t spilt-they probably have.

    Overall, this is an awesome palette and it definitely stands up to being bashed around. My only gripe is the plastic does scratch and because it’s white it will start to show dirt.

    I hope this helps someone thinking of buying it-I agonised over getting mine because yaby was new and I couldn’t find many reviews!
