Finished my MAC palette!

So happy! I finally got the last shadow in for my MAC palette and now it is all finished so I wanted to share ... I love how accessible this makes so many colours, and the fact that now I have two lipsticks worth of Back2MAC containers is great too.

Enjoy the oogling!


  1. YAY!!!! Congratulations... more more more palette

  2. YEAH! I just made my 1st 15 palette, too!!! I depotted my new Ungaro shadows and have 3 quads (including shadowy lady) and then a 15 palette, 1 full blushcreme (6) palette and then 4 reg blushes in a 6 palette!

    Which depotting method did you use? I tried heat first (it seemed easiest) but I was too impatient with the stupid candle and cracked a shadow (not too bad) so I do the no-heat method. I find it pretty easy. I just hope the STL MAC store will take my empties w/o plastic or metal pan. I have 14 already!

  3. Isn't it just a sight for sore eyes? I can't quit starting at it ... and am resisting the urge to change my makeup multiple times a day!

    I use the heat-less method. I pop the plastic insert out with the flat side of a blackhead extractor, clip that side wall of plastic off with a big pair of nail clippers, then lift the pan out with the flat thing again and stick a magnet on and voila! Way fast and less messy than the heated method, and it takes me like one minute to do.

    As for the B2M issue ... I bought a bunch of empty pans from and just pop that into the insert after I take the original pan out and then pop the insert back in. It looks just like a completely intact shadow pot without colour in it. The new rule is that it has to have a pan in it, but they didn't say the original pan! hehehehe

  4. Great Erin!! I have a complete 15 palette too and resisting calling my pro store for another palette..swimming and humid is on my list!! your palette sealed the deal...


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
