Just got this the other day. Absolutly brilliant, I have the magnetic 4 pan from mac and this is just the same, plus it has a mirror and its a fraction of the price. I have popped the inner frame out and use it for all my de potted shadows, so I can take them with me for touch ups. Excellent value for an empty magnetic palette. Wish they did a bigger one aswell!!
This is an amazing compact! And only $1!! It's extremely sturdy, like everyone has said.. it seems like the only way you could break this is if you ran over it with a car or something. It has a nice sized mirror that takes up the whole inside lid. As for the brush that comes with it - toss it it'll just be clattering inside of it and it's junk. I like how it's white, so cute! These fit MAC eyeshadows ( the MAC e/s are a smidge smaller than the actual circle, but it's fine). I own 3 of these, will buy more when necessary. Everyone should pick up one of these, highly recommended! Can't think of anything bad about them.
Once these became available at Target, I bought one. Totally worth the $1 price tag, no doubt! These fit UD, MAC, and any other 26mm pans. They feel just as sturdy as the MAC palettes and I didn't mind the fact that the lid isn't clear because my MAC shadows are in 15 pan palettes where the lids aren't clear. The only reason I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 is because of the wasted space from the unused brush. I threw the brush out and didn't even bother with it. Overall, I would definitely buy more of these palettes for my depots!
I love that this so cheap! Plus the added bonus that MAC refill pans fit and stay put without any issue (makes for easy travel). I only needed the one compact anyway, since I only pop in the pans I'm going to use for a particular look for the day (I leave the rest at home).
It's a dollar and it works! I got one of these with a magazine subscription with some lip gloss that I knew I would never use in it but after I looked online and saw that it would fit mac and urban depoted shadows I would pop them out and see if I like it. They fit perfectly. The compact itself is a little flimsy but it doesn't seem like it is providing the shadows any less protection than the mac pallets or anything similar. While I will probably stick with mac for my larger pallets for consistency I will buy a few more of these for keeping just a few colors at a time in. Also, since e.l.f. usually has a few coupons floating around on the internet you can sometimes get these for as low as 50 cents.
These little palettes are nice and sturdy. MAC eyeshadows fit perfectly in them. The little brush it comes with is fairly useless though.
Although it is quite sturdy and the mirror is useful, I probably won't buy another one. I prefer the clear lid on the MAC palette as I have a few of them and I like to be able to see which colours are in the palette at a glance.
For $1 you can't go wrong with this compact! Not only does it store my E.L.F shadows and lip glosses, but my MAC shadows as well. Great buy!
I absolutely love these little palettes. I use them to hold my depotted MAC, Urban Decay, NYX trio and Milani single eyeshadows. They are sturdy and very handy to have. For the price they really can't be beat!
Thank goodness for E.L.F. quads! These are inexpensive and travel nicely. I use them to store my MAC Pro e/s. They only cost $1 (US). Who's going to turn that down?! Before contributing yourself to buy an empty MAC quad palette, try this brand and see the difference. This was the best purchase I've made by far. I will buy this compact again and again : )
I bought a few of these handy little compacts to house my NYX Round Lipsticks collection that I have melted down into 26mm pans (I bought the pans from Coastal Scents) and I just love the results. I have the choice of 4 lipsticks in a cute petite compact which travels so well, is interchangeable, includes an OK lip brush (I use a retractable lip brush but this brush works in a pinch) and has a big mirror. Why it took me so long to buy this compact I donít know, but I am sure that I will buy several more in the near future. The best thing about this compact is that it is a great deal for $1 and although it is early in Year 2010, I am sure this will probably be one of the best makeup-related purchases that I make this year. Highly recommended.
