You just have to wait for the alcohol to fully evaporate (dry it with a blowdryer) , because when it evaporates, it leaves no trace of it on the eyeshadow

I've also read in another thread that one can use the Claire's boutique eyeshadows.
I like to use a clothes iron to de-pan, but it was easier with a flat iron for these. It was a little work to remove all of the plastic from the case. (I've already thrown them out, otherwise I'd show you.)
And the little plastic spatula came from a kit of an empty bottle and plastic containers I bought at ULTA.
Thanks for your interest!

Also, this procedure works for broken eye shadows, too. I had to re-press five of them.
Thanks, again mskitschmas….I love it!
