    What fits where? Palettes and de-potting?

    I've searched the forums looking for an answer to this question. I've heard that the NYX trios fit into the MAC palettes once depotted? Is this true and what other DS brand shadows fit? I've never seen a MAC e/s upclose to compare size so I have no clue.

    Also, with the Loreal HIP duos, I've heard they fit into the Japonesque palettes, is this true? I've got makeup overflowing and I need to condense it down into palettes if possible.

    Re: What fits where? Palettes and de-potting?

    well today i put my lancome eyeshadows in the pallete, they JUST fitted in there. with the mac e/s they leave about 1mm gap or so, but the lancome ones were just a nice tight fit. also i have put my urban decay e/s in the pallete they were the exact same size as the mac. ALSOOOO... lol i dropped my 28 neutral palette from coastal scent and i depotted the shadows and put them in mac paletts.mind u, be careful as those shadows are very soft and break very easily.

    as far as NYX goes, im sorry i dont know about that as they dont sell any in the uk

    NYX trio shadows fit perfectly into MAC palettes. Also, L'Oreal HIP Duos fit perfectly into Japonesque palettes. There are a few videos on these on youtube. Check them out.

    Thank you so much ladies. This is such good news. After my Japonesque palette gets here I'll be ready to start depotting.

    A lot of drugstore eyeshadows fit into MAC palettes, including NYX trios, Milani, and Jane eyeshadows!

    Thank you, I didn't know about Jane cosmetics. They are on closeout at my local Walgreens, but there is very little left. I wonder if they are being discontinued or just not being sold at Walgreens?

    Re: What fits where? Palettes and de-potting?

    I have always gotten mine at walgreens. My favorites are brownie points (matte dark brown) and hip bone (matte white). I don't know anything about them being discontinued or not being sold at walgreens anymore, perhaps there was a packaging change? I have found them at Ulta too.

    Re: What fits where? Palettes and de-potting?

    Weird question, I hope someone can help.

    I bought two, 4 slot MAC palettes. I plan to remove the divider and put my Hip DUOS in there. How many do you think will fit per palette (w/o the divider)?

    I noticed this too at my local Walgreens. There was practically nothing left.

    i cant remember where i saw it, either here or at youtube, but if you remove the divider, you'd just be able to fit 5

    Personelle is a brand I've never heard of. Where can you buy it?

    It's ok
    You're not missing a lot
    It's not very well pigmented but for somebody starting with makeup it's alright
