Beautiful Palette
I have been wearing these shadows since I received this palette. All the colors look beautiful on my caramel colored skin. I'm officially obsessed! The packaging is beautiful as well and with the personalization of my name it's absolutely adorable. Thank you Marlena for sharing your passion with us and bringing us this wonderful product. Makeup Geek forever!

I got my palette yesterday! I was excited to see what all the eyeshadows looked like. Everyone says they are great colors and highly pigmented. That is a true fact. You must buy this palette, you will love it. I also bought some additional colors that aren't in the palette, love all the colors. MUG IS AMAZING! I can't wait to buy to more eye shadows and other products. : )

Shut The Front Door!
Not a bad color in the bunch. Not one.
I have what, 12 or more palettes the manufacturer created and I can always count on at least 2 colors that I won't touch in them.. you know what I mean. It's obvious the colors in this palette were chosen by someone who also uses them. Thank you Marlena, thank you.

In Love With These Shadows
I don't know why it took me so long but finally got these shadows and let me tell you I fell in love ! They are creamy and pigmented even ,better then some of my higher end shadows. These blow them out of the water! Color pay off is amazing in all the shades I could see myself using all colors, my other palettes I nay use certain shades. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for amazing quality shadows.

Love The Mug Starter Kit!! :)
I just received my kit today & am thrilled with the quality & colors of the eye shadow pans as well as the cute Z-Palette itself! Ordering was easy, great customer service & the shade variety is perfect for a variety of day or glam night looks! They are *excellent* quality, super & beautifully *pigmented*,... I'm a HUGE FAN of Marlenas' informative tutorials on YouTube & have been watching her videos for years,... SO HAPPY to see she was able to launch a fairly priced cosmetics line for the 'economically savvy diva' in all of us,...!! Yay & keep up the great work Marlena! :) DEF looking forward to my next purchase soon & building up my MUG collection!
Lots of Love,
Melissa from northern New Jersey

Love The Kit!
This kit has the perfect shades for a starter kit. The shadows are pigmented and smooth with little to no fall out. I usually just throw it in my purse for every day wear, but can use the darker shades for an evening out. I have since purchased additional colors having loved this kit. The price is hard to beat!

Love It!
I am so impressed with the quality of these MUG shadows! They are velvety, smooth, and highly pigmented. I have used MAC for many years, and I can honestly say that these are even better. I was also very pleased with the purchasing process. Ordering was easy and my order arrived within just a few days. They were packaged up very nicely in bubble wrap to prevent any damage and the box was appropriately sized for the contents. There was even a sweet little note from the girl who packaged my order thanking me and telling me that she hopes I enjoy the products....such a nice touch! I will definitely be ordering again!

I Should Have Got This Sooner!
Let me start off by saying, I have never tried MUG's eyeshadow before, and I feel in love :) they are such rich colors. I love the "Coco Bear", "Glamorous", and "Drama Queen" they are such unique colors :) this bundle is well worth your money. They are great combos you can make with this palette, and its great for traveling. Also these shadows work well with any eyelid primer, which is unusual for eye shadows to do so. So great job!

Great Shades
The colors are great,the pigmentation is very good. For me the problem is oily eye lids, I am looking for a primer that absorbs as much oil as possible. I have creasing problem after a while of wearing the eyeshadow. What products are out there that can help with this problem?
Marjorie wrote on 3/14/2013
So Glad I Get This
I'm so glad I get this. I'm loving the shades, great for daily use and I can tone it up for occasion use. I tried using Shimma Shimma, Creme Brulee and Mocha on outer corner for neutral look today, love the eyeshadow. They are pigmented and most importantly, they don't crease. I will be trying out other colors tomorrow.

And the size of the Z-Palette Bundle is awesome, great for travel-use.

I Wish I Had This Fantastic Set Sooner!
Marlena did a great job adding some of the new shadows to a starter set! My stylist, Megan, at Knotty Hair Salon showed me how to combine these colours with a few I need to get to have a knockout holiday party look. Thank you, Marlena, and Megan for helping me to use the MUG shadows.

Marlena, please consider putting some more sets together with a new set of nine, so that we can know we are buying colours that will work together. Look suggestions with the kit would help us newbie Muggies!
