Are you clicking "Attach this file" after uploading the photos?  If you don't, pictures can't go in a spoiler.

 

ETA:  Each photo has to have the "Attach this file" thing clicked, and you have to see the photo link text thing in the text editor box.  Anything not attached cannot be hidden under a spoiler.

I depotted some blushes and more shadows, there was only one casualty, a BAB blush from Ipsy that was quite bright and probably would never get used. I never expected to even half way fill a large Z-palette with items I would like to use but don't reach for but it is filling up quickly. I'm hoping it will help me use some things I like but aren't the most convenient.

My package was delivered this morning! Which is highly unusual because I never get mail this early. I'm on my way to work, but a reveal from my lovely Santa @@Shalott will be forthcoming this evening! Hopefully the work day will fly by :)

@@wadedl I love my Z palette because I liked the HK wild thing palette but it was GINORMOUS I never opened it up. I find I use it a lot more now that it's not hiding in a giant tin under my sink (who designs these things, I swear....)

You know, I bought a z palette, but returned it because all I could think is how messy it would look if I mix and matched stuff into it, but looking at the start of your palette has me rethinking that...would love to see a pic when you fill yours up!

You can check out how other people's palettes have come out on the Z-Palette site:

And here is the user-submitted photo gallery for the UniiPalette, which I think runs smaller than most of the Z Palettes (doesn't stop them from being adorable,though!):

ETA: There are some pics that make me want to reach through the monitor and straighten out their palettes into some sort of order.

Ahhh! I am so excited! I was getting worried since USPS said it would be there yesterday. My biggest fear was that it wouldn't arrive until after Christmas! :D

I think it helps to have several of the same size eyeshadows together. I was just on another thread and they mentioned these!

That one is now mine! Can't wait for it to get here. Now I can have my big Z-Palette and have a mini palette for my purse and I can choose what I want from the big one!

And that right there is a big problem for me...I think I might be a little OCD actually.  Having a big problem with the unevenness of the layout!  LOL!  

 

Hmmmm...do you think it is possible to not find out you have serious OCD issues until you are in your mid 40's???  YIKES!   But then again...I haven't had all my pretties for long either, like what...6 months??  Yeah about that long, so that could be it too.  Hmmm....

    • Moisturizer is also the best gift for someone.  The best moisturizer helps to get rid of skin related ailments and dry skin problem. So, I advise to chose the best moisturizer from the available brands in the market.
    • Finally I found a like-minded person in this. It's cool, you can win big winnings and, moreover, without leaving the house. I have been playing play n go slots for a year now, this resource has long existed in the field of gambling and if you have questions, I will be happy to help you.
    • There are many reasons to moisturize your skin with best moisturizer.  Always chose your best moisturizer. Dermatologists always advise  to moisturize the skin as moisturizer reduces the skin problems and increase the moisture level of the stratum corneum. Dryness is removed by the  Moisturizer and it prevents skin from drying out. 
    • It was two years ago this weekend, that I started to get ready for my 2018 No Buy, and I've come such a long way! I recall on the Saturday night, two years ago, overeating pizza and watching a mukbang channel on You Tube. I remember waking up really early on the Sunday morning feeling ill. I was googling small meals and I found myself on a forum about bariatric surgery. I was reading posts about all the hard work people put in for that kind of surgery. This inspired me, and the next day I ate a small healthy meal, early in the day. I had an amazing sleep on the Sunday night. Amazing dreams. When I woke up, I had all this motivation to do a No Buy for 2018! I haven't changed my weight or eating since then, but I did make a lot of progress on my debt, which is more important to me. I began right away listing all my debts, organizing my beauty items, and using up a few little odds and ends. My goal was to pay off one debt a month in 2018, and this was my list:  Jan - credit card $27.32 Feb - credit card $42.93 Mar - credit card $76.98 April - IRS debt $102.04 May - credit card - $242.86 June - credit card - $398.01 July - credit card $442.61 August - credit card $629.43 Sept - credit card $725.55 Oct - credit card $761.90 Nov - credit card - $946.69 Dec - credit card $985.76 I ended up making it half the way through the list in 2018. This year, I got burned out and stopped working on my No Buy until June, when I finished the rest of this list along with two additional debts. All except for the $761.90 debt that I had wanted to pay off Oct 2018. That one has such a bad interest rate and little minimum payment, that many things moved ahead of it in the debt snowball program. That's why it will be so exciting to pay it off on Boxing Day!  I still have debts but far fewer. I was desperate to not have so many. As you can imagine, that was a lot of payments each month.    
    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
