EDIT: the hinges on the quad cases are poorly made and break easily. I've had 3 break on me in under 6 months with daily use. The plastic is heavy and the mirror topheavy, which is what causes the delicate hinge breakage. They will still seal properly with broken hinges, but that's beside the point: it's a quality failure which is unacceptable for the price point. Very sad, I wanted to love these but I can't recommend them, even with the fabulous designs.. :-(

Artdeco's eyeshadow, blush and lip products ar designed to be modular and replacable for full customization; their Beauty Boxes were designed to hold the products. They come in five different sizes: duo (2 eyeshadows), trio (3 eyeshadows or 1 blush), quattro (4 eyeshadows), quadrat (6 eyeshadows or 3 shadows and 1 blush), and magnum (12 eyeshadows or any mathematically feasible combination of blush and shadow, and on some models, also 1 liptick). The boxes are actually quite small and relatively pricey, so if you're looking for a Z-Palette replacement for a large quantity of depots, especially round shadows, this is not it. That being said, the quality of the boxes are fantastic: hardened plastic and metal, a mirror on the inside, and seasonal limited edition designs on all of the box sizes that are usually gorgeous and holographic. They're very sturdy, so perfect for travel, although you do have to buy the appropriate applicators separately. most importantly, they are magnetized, so it's very easy to swap in whatever magnetized pans you may have to make a custom palette that you can change at any time. I can see how it would be fun to take these and try to manually dupe a much more expensive Chanel quad, for example. Personally I have one quattro box which I use to hold my custom eyebrow kit (1 Catrice shadow, 1 Too Faced shadow, and the SK powder eyeliner kit, all depotted). I can't recommend these boxes enough; for travel or selective Artdeco shades / most loved depots, these are beautiful, high quality, sturdy and more than worth the money paid for them. It's not for mass depotting but if you have a handful of extremely well loved singles, this is a great way to make them looked polished, couture and mobile, rather than like a DIY project. And, of course, reusable so you'll never get bored of the colors inside ;-)
