I say do it!!

Wow, the new palettes fillled with blushes and e/s look so cool. I have not depotted my blushes. Would need like 10 palettes for them icon_eek.gif.

 

I got one new palette & 24 wells for my pigments. It works just fine.

Ohh pigments in palettes! That sounds cool- how do you get them to stay put in the wells? Can you post a photo?

So you have to buy the palette AND inserts?

Yes, unless you just want to use the palettes like a Z-Palette, in which case you don't need to buy an insert.

I want the blush insert to show up on the website already! My local store was sold out when I picked up my GD items, and they were sold out after MM launched and I picked up my palette with the 15-shadow insert. Mama wants to depot more stuff! lol

post #668 of 1742
I havent depotted any of my blushes but is it like depotting eyeshadows? If so i might as well try
post #669 of 1742
Similar process, yes! It takes a little more patience, though. I use a candle warmer as my heat source and it takes a little longer for the pan to warm up. Alternatively, it seems that the newer blushes (i.e. Styleseeker, Pro-longwear blushes) have the glue covering most of the pan, so it's best to go slow when prying the pan from the plate. I accidentally put my thumb in Whole Lotta Love. I was able to repress the powder, but still, it's kind of a risky business lol.

A double-sided Pro Palette that accommodates two inserts. See-through lid lets you view shade choices while keeping product secure and protected during transit and storage. High quality, glossy black plastic.

I love love love the new concept but when is it coming out? I really love the new inserts as well that you can put the cream products in MAC has been missing a lip palette solution for a long time. Any idea what the price on the duo will be?

I can't wait to haul these! I'm assuming the old palettes are back to Mac- able... Can't find any of my boxes to determine this for sure. I know the old empty quads were.

Yes, they are, but you probably get more money when you sell your old ones (if they are in good condition).

Thanks I will have to look into that! If anyone is interested in buying original MAC palettes, please PM me!

Australia pricing suck ssad.gif

Palettes $30 and inserts $15
post #680 of 1742

I want some for Christmas to depot my e/s.

 

But not at £14 per palette and then £6.50 per insert.  I just can't afford it, especially as I have enough eye shadows to fill 6/7 palettes.  I guess I'll have to look on here to see if anyone has any of the old style ones for sale cheaply as I really need to depot them as I'm out of room and will be going away to Uni next year, I don't want to be bringing a million little pots with me.

post #681 of 1742
I'm looking forward to the double palette for lip stuff. Hope it comes out soon.... :p
post #682 of 1742

I really love the look of the new palettes - it makes me want to go on a depotting spree with all my regular packaging blushes and e/s. I could probably get about 4 or 5 l/s with B2M afterwards, which might help to soften the blow of the prices!

It's what, 6 empties for B2M?  I could get like 18-20 l/s for depotting - but I still can't justify the price of them right now.  It's just too much money.

Yep, 6! I usually wait til I want a LE l/s that's in regular packaging.

 

I did a Live Chat before and apparently they're available at all MAC locations in the UK including Debenhams! The 10% off starts in store on Tuesday, so I may grab some next weekend if they actually have them in :)

It's 10% off the entire order isn't it though, not 10% off each item, right?

 

I don't have a MAC counter/store near me.  If I do eventually depot would you be willing to take my empties to trade in for l/s as you have so many near you?

Works out the same!

And of course I would :) Depotting is oddly therapeutic - it's nice to create space in my makeup drawers for even more MAC girlhaha.gif

Where do you buy your magnets from to depot?  Tis the one thing I don't have.  I just dunno where I'd put my MAC palettes.  My vanity is stuffed!

I get my magnets from eBay! And I store my palettes in a really pretty letter rack thing from TK Maxx when I'm in my house in Cardiff, or stacked up in a drawer in my desk whilst staying elsewhere :)

Could you PM me the magnets you buy from eBay?  I don't like big chunky looking magnets.  :(

 

I may have to do the DVD rack type thing.  I suppose I could move crap around in my ALEX unit but tbh I dunno where I'd put the stuff that's currently in it.  :/

post #690 of 1742

I still cant bring myself to put my new palettes away, they are out on display.

 

Major depotting marathon for me this weekend to fill them up with my 3rd eyeshadow palette now on the way
