I really should keep better inventory… but what a boring post would that be!
Last Friday I depotted 10 shadows that had been waiting for a while, since I had run out of magnets. And palettes 😉
Last week I bought a new MAC palette (with clear cover), I like these because they’re pretty deep and baked eyeshadows normally fit in them. They don’t fit in the old type palettes.
After depotting and trying to re-organise everything, I saw I again ran out of space. Fortunately I still had an empty old type palette, so I reorganised some more…
I wanted to put purples and reds together since I have this very annoying split purple/red MAC eyeshadow, and on top of that, it’s baked. It’s Mi’Lady, some old LE, which finally, after ages, I depotted. I fit them all together in one deep palette. I used to have reds and pinks, and blues and purples, in one palette each.
So now reds and purples are together in a deep palette. It looks like I don’t have nearly enough reds!!! there’s only two true reds, that blush is too pink to be there… speaking of blushes, another annoyance is the split gold/pink bloomsberry/tigerlily. Perhaps another double is in order, with the added advantage of having all cheek stuff together.
Now blues and teals do not fit in a single palette, but it looks a bit empty like this. The foiled blue baked Essence 01 keep your midnight secret, freshly depotted, is very tall, and it actually doesn’t fit in this palette as you can see, but if I put it in the middle, the clear inner cover seems to bend over it when everything closes, securely. I will have to use it a lot to flatten it 😉
Here are the depotted shadows, marked:
Those rectangular blues in a row are from an H&M palette from years ago, “confession in the moonlight”. I also depotted a very shitty and ancient but oh well purple from Sephora (All-over color 0711), the pearled earth from MAC I talked about recently, a baked Catrice which broke a bit (candy shock) and an Essence the velvets (09 bahama-mama).
I hate how messy and uneven everything is, but I hate even more to have a million singles that take a huge amount of space, are impossible to organise, and I never reach for… I wish all shadows were rectangular or square though, such a waste of space with all the little circles. Look how neat the Artdeco palette is!
