Miss Jessica Harlow gives a great how to for depotting different eye shadows. Depotting is removing eyeshadow, blush, or powder from its original packaging and putting it into one of these palettes. Below is a picture of the uni palette, MAC palette and the Z-palette.
The Unii palette is my must have to-go palette. This is the smallest palette but, it is the most durable out of the three since it is made of hard plastic, and the inside is already magnetized so you don’t need to add extra magnets. But, MAC eyeshadows are magnetized so they need a metal sticker on the back of them.
This is my palette I throw in my bag everyday. My Chanel powder, happy booster blush, a MAC eyeshadow, some Urban Decay shadows that I depotted in an earlier post, and a sigma brush.
I’ve had this customized MAC palette for a while and I took out the frame so that I could fit more shadows. It’s so flimsy and the clasp on the front broke so I don’t even travel with it anymore. Although I think their quad palettes are more reinforced. There are allot of other brands that offer customizable palettes like Urban Decay, Inglots freedom system, and more.
This Z-palette is the biggest palette, made out of thick cardboard, and comes in a variety of colors and sizes. They also sell the magnetic metal stickers and empty metal pans that you can fill with your own pigmented shadows, or lipstick.
Depotting is such a great way to condense all of your single packaged products into one place. It’s interchangeable and now you can use the products you already own more because you can take them all with you in one container.
