So a bit of a random post today. If you guys saw my post about my makeup storage you'll know I'm having trouble finding space for all my crap while stopping everything getting cluttered so as a solution I've been thinking about depotting all my MAC shadows into palettes. However it's occurred to me that while I have a decent amount of MAC shadows there aren't many that I'm devoted to enough to want to bother putting them in a palette. I used to be obsessed with getting makeup but now I'm at the point where all the bright shadows and crazy coloured lippies are just taking up space and not getting used so I may have a blogsale pretty soon. If you're interested let me know!
So I'm thinking of just starting up a palette, with only a few of my fave shadows of my current collection going in there (honestly between sharp knives, heat and other things used to depot my clumsiness would probably mean it ended badly anyway)
But I just wanted to let you guys know of a feature I found after doing a little digging online where you can drag and drop colours to create your own virtual palette on the US site. Pretty cool huh?
This is the 15 palette full of eyeshadows I either own and might try to depot or want to buy in pan form to put straight into the palettes.
.Brule . All That Glitters . Naked Lunch . Jest . Gleam.
.Shale . Expensive Pink . Sushi Flower . Mythology . Twinks.
.Sketch . Espresso . Trax . Patina . Beauty Marked.
As you can see they're pretty much all neutral colours as it's come to my attention that despite owning a mass of bright shadows from places like Sugarpill and Urban Decay, I really don't have any inclination of using them (again blogsale anyone?) and actually find that I can create really interesting looks with neutrals, pinks and light purples that get me more compliments than any time I tried to rock some bright blue and orange extravaganza.
If you fancy having a go at this (you can do blush palettes and quads too!) you can find the link HERE
I don't think the function exists on the UK site and it's a bit fiddly to use but I found it good fun to see how my palettes would look and how I would organise them.
I am curious how many people actually hit the 'add all to cart' button afterwards as these things come to a total of well over £150! I'll definitely be building mine up over a few months. However much I love the look of that palette up there I need to eat!
Do you already own mac palettes? If so do you find them more convenient than having them all individually?
