Love 'em! Bought my second today... it's sooo nice to be able to organize them, and it's great for travelling. They're dirt cheap, too, for the convenience factor the give.
This is a great way to organize your eyeshadows but the only bad part is IF you accidently drop the palette all your shadows will be broken! arg this is the only bad part but overall its great to organize your shadows
After seeing all the pictures of de-potted e/s in this palette I decided it was time to organize my pots into color groups into the palettes. It took me a while to get the hang of de-potting but after a few times and with enough patience I now have full 15 palettes of neutrals & browns, 2 started with pinks & oranges. I want to get 4 more for my grays, greens, purples & blues. These things are addicting and I love the back to Mac for the empty pots. continued >>
I looooove my little MAC palettes! Being the minimalist I am, I have only 3 of these: one that has the colors I use every day (brow, base, mid-tone neutral, highlight), one with alternate neutrals, including shimmery neutrals for evening, and one for fun colors (yes, I limit myself to 3, with great discipline and wailing!). They're so streamlined and organized, and buying e/s pans without the pot saves real money and space (and the palettes hold my depotted and magnetized Milani shadows neatly too). Plus, when I travel, all I need to to is grab a palette or two and go. Try that with a bunch of pots!
I looooove these things! Slim, sleek, convenient and you can switch the eyeshadows around, so it makes any kind of packing (overnight or for a week) a snap. And now that I know what they retail for (yup . . . I was taken in by the ebay hype and overpaid for my first one :) I plan to make a little trip to the MAC Pro store and stock up on them. Of course, that means I will have to also buy some MAC shadows to fill them up . . . oh, how devious on MAC's part :) But how delightful, just the same :)
I have like 10 of these. hehe I used to keep all my shadows in the 15 pan, but MAN they are unwieldy. I really really like these!! They are like, a staple. hehe So each time I don't have to go crazy if I fill up a palette b/c it's only four, not 15. :) I arrange all my mine by color and I only have 8 of them filled at any one time with a red, yellow/orange, green, blue-greens, blue, purple, neutral/warm browns, blacks. The rest of my shadows go into the 15 pans and I swap the colors in and out of the pans as I feel like a change. :) I keep them stacked upright in a case so I can flip through them like a rolodex. hehe Very good, will buy many more! oops, I have enough, but I'd rebuy if I needed more! :D So convinient for travel too!!
I have a half a dozen of these - perfect for arrangeing your fave eye combos and the clear lid makes them easy to identify. I'll purchase again and again.
I love this palette--4 colors are perfect for making one "look," or grouping color schemes. It fits well in a makeup bag or even a tiny evening bag. I like the ridges on the inside, which lets you take out a pan in case you want to change colors. The size fits well with other eyeshadows (such as milani). The construction is sturdy and sleek. My only gripe is that it doesn't have a magnetic back. Unless you get the pro pans (and how many of us actually live near a MAC pro/freestanding store?), you need to buy magnetic tape separately.
You could never ask for a better eyeshadow palette. Holds everything securely, looks sleek and holds a lot. Another winner from MAC!
I got my first palette today and an very pleased with my purchase. I got it off of ebay as I do not live near a pro store. The case is slim and I wll have no problem with traveling with as many eyeshadow palettes I want. So much better than those plastic small tubs of shadow. It is very convient to carry one eyeshadow look or several in one compact. Next I will have to scour ebay for the pans as they are cheaper than the tubs. I had to depot my shadows but current shadows and bought 1 inch magnets to stick on the back. Now I am off to ebay to buy more palettes.
