Why is make-up artistry and adoration not a sport? Don't look at me like I've lost my nutty mind, I'm completely serious! Have you ever tried to depot something? Even with heat it's about the toughest and roughest thing I've ever done physically and mentally. Trying to come up with a way to expertly remove shadows from their plastic packages of doom and not destroying the shadow is tough work! Then actually putting that plan into action takes an insane amount of patience and dedication! Haha, okay I'll stop now!
Depotting eyeshadows is really fun when you know you're about to save a ton of space and your make up becomes 10x more accessible. When you depot these eyeshadows you are left with the metal pan and your lovely shadow inside. So ... where do you put it? There are a lot of palettes out in the market. The most well known ones are the M.A.C. palettes, the Unii Palettes, and the Z-Palettes. Now before I depotted anything I went back and forth a bunch of times deciding which would be best for me. I can't really say why I didn't choose the others but I'm going to tell you why I chose the Z-Palette and why I love it!
- It comes in a variety of sizes and colors to fit your style and need!
- There's a clear, plastic lid! Why was this important? Well, it makes it a lot easier to see what you've got inside. You won't be pulling out and opening up all your palettes to see what's inside!
- The bottom is magnetic and almost any metal pan will stick to it! And if it doesn't? No biggie because they send you round magnets to use :)
- It's a lot sturdier than people made it out to be. I've dropped it tons and my shadows are still in tact. It is made from cardboard but I can't imagine it deteriorating unless it's drowned in a tub of water.
I do like how the neat and tidy the M.A.C. palette's look but I just love the Z-Palette's to reflect the person's personality or the personality of the shadows inside! I'd highly, highly recommend you check out these Z-Palette's for your collection and you're thinking of depotting! If you become a fan or 'like' their fb page they'll give you a 10% coupon off your entire purchase! Also, a little birdy has informed me that there will be a sale soon! Their sales are brilliant and I would definitely pounce on it if you've been thinking of getting one! :)
What do you lovelies think of depotting? It's quite therapeutic! Do you prefer a Z-Palette or any other palette? If you'd like I can share how I depotted my M.A.C. shadows and my Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette! Just let me know if you'd be interested :)
