Shop Z Palette here.

Did you know you can store more than eyeshadows and other powder products in your Z Palette? You can also depot creamy beauty items like lipsticks and concealers.

In this week's 'Tips & Tricks' post, we'll teach you how to depot your favorite lipsticks for your Z Palette using an oven and 10 Metal Pans. This quick trick saves you space both in your makeup drawer and in your suitcase when traveling! You can fit 16 Metal Pans into a Small Z Palette, 50 Metal Pans into a Large Z Palette, and 60 Metal Pans into a Pro Z Palette. That's a lot of lipstick!

Preparation: Collect the 10 lipsticks you would like to store in your Z Palette. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Step 1: Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Space the empty 10 Metal Pans across the baking sheet.

Step 2: Starting with one lipstick, remove the lid and twist product out of the tube. Using a butter knife or cuticle pusher, trim the product out of the tube and press product into one of the empty Metal Pans.

Step 3: Repeat this process until all 10 Metal Pans are full.

Step 4: Once preheated, place your baking sheet in the oven for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, checking regularly.

Step 5: After product appears level in Metal Pan, remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Once cooled, your depotted lipsticks are ready to be arranged in your Z Palette!

Tips: Every oven and lipstick is different, that is why we recommend you test this method first with an older lipstick you no longer care for. Some lipstick tubes contain more product than others. Make sure you don't overload your metal pan with too much product!
