MAC's 4-pan palettes are a terrific value. The price is reasonable, and they are great for travel. You can pick 4 colors that work well together, pop them in, and then go. While I wish that these were a little bit sturdier and had a mirror, these are still fab if you love MAC shadows. The clear top is a great idea because I can remember what's in there. lol.
This pallete is easy to use because of the clear lid, so it is easy to find a specific e/s.
I prefer these to the 15 pan palette, as they have transparent covers and you can see what e/s are inside without having to open it up every time. Also better than buying the e/s in pots; you can save a bit of money this way.
the price is pretty ok. i love the sleek look! all i need to do is to get the shadows and fill this up! great for toting it about.
good for traveling. i love the see through lid. makes everything look pretty and expensive. good quality.
I have already bought 2 of these palettes. They're great for carrying out 4 shadows (esp. wash, lid, crease, highlighter) in one case. I prefer this to the 15-pan palette because it's smaller and fits in my purse. It's also easier to organize eyeshadow combos. In addition to that, you can see through the cover to make sure you're grabbing the right e/s combo. I'm going to be buying more of these to store my shadows.
FYI Milani and Jane e/s fit in these palettes. continued >>
The quad palette has a handy see through top which displays your shadows attractively so you'll end up using more of your shadows and rediscover the old ones. Putting your shadows in a palette is so much better then having a bunch of pots around and you can make you own custom quads which are small enough to take along with you when you go on a trip. The little plastic clasp/closure seems like it'll break easily but I haven't had any problems yet.
HOLY! Only $5.18 after tax for this beauty! At first, I was hesitant. Thinking...why should I spend extra money on an EMPTY compact when I have perfectly good packaging for my e/s? Then I took the plunge, popped out the eyeshadows, stuck them in, and voila! I was in love. My e/s first perfectly inside AND the case is AMAZINGLY sturdy! I thought it'd be cheap plastic with a flimsy lid but it doesn't budge AT ALL unless you click the release. *note to self: buy a few more!*
This is so much more practical than carrying the pots around. It is a magnetized compact with a clear plastic lid so you can easily see your eye shadows. It retails for $4.50 CAN and holds 4 refillable eye shadow pans. These refillable eye shadow pans have the same amount of product as the ones in the pot, have a magnet attached to the back of the pan and are $11 CAN instead of $14.50 for the pots. I love the sleek and sexy look. Well worth the trip to the MAC store.
This is a great palette! My complaint with Stila 4 x palettes was that they didn't fasten shut, they got dirty easily, etc. and the MAC Pro Color x 4 is the solution . When you buy the pro shadows, they're already magnetized and pop right in (and out). They stay protected and clean, since the cover snaps shut, and the lid is clear so you can see what colors you're grabbing. A great product; a great value.
