For Katy =)


The colors that I have in my blue palette are all colors from MAC. You can buy the eyeshadow in it a "pot" at the counters or get what is called a refill from an actual MAC store. The palette can also be purchased there and you can pick up to 15 colors to buy and put in there or take your time filling it. If you buy the eyeshadows at a MAC counter then I have a site on the side for you to show you how to get them "de-potted" and then they will fit in the palette. These are the colors I have (going across each row starting with the lime green): Bitter, Mink & Sable, Aquadisiac, Clarity, Star By Night, Swimming, Humid, Talent Pool, Electric Eel (better than Clarity to me), Chrome Yellow (LOVE!!!), Sumptuous Olive (exactly like Mink & Sable), Newly Minted, Tilt, Deep Truth (LOVE!!!) and Contrast (LOVE!!!). I definitly did not buy these all at once but have enjoyed buying shadows every now and then and building up my collection so that now I have an "only blue palette".....obviously when I buy another blue the Chrome Yellow will HAVE to go somewhere else =). The colors that I bought at Khols also fit into these and I will most likely buy a MAC palette for them as well. Tutorial coming soon on Newly Minted!!!!!!

So pretty! I might have even drooled. The bottom three and middle on the top row are totally calling my name. Bad.

How do you store your pallets? I bought several from Coastal Scents and have them in my bathroom on a shelf (it's one of those things that goes above your toilet..). Anyway, I'm having nightmares envisioning of one of my kids trying to get a pallet and them crashing down and the shadows, etc. all breaking. How sad would that be!

And while you're at it, how do you store everything else???

Good to know about the Kohl's shadows too.. how much is a pallet and where do you get that? Oh, and I actually just read something that said that the makers of Kohl's shadows is in the same place as estee lauder.

Thanks so much Jenny. I usually only buy MAC and I am just so tired of having pot every where. I so know what I am going to ask for my birthday now, a palette and some those great colors you have.

Hi Jen,
I was avoiding homework one night and came across your blog. I am so scared to say that I think you are my long lost twin sister!! I have both the feather and flower head bands from forever 21, and almost every mac color & brush that you recommend, not to mention a couple of outfits that you wear, I could walk 1 ft and pull from my closet. I had to call my mom in to see, and the first words she said were, "did that girl steal your identity?" HAHA, it's scary! I don't even know how I found your blog, but I am in LOVE! I have been on for an hour and am hooked! You have the cutest ideas, and I LOVE how you did the bouffant bangs with the flower headband! I am DYING to get the mac with the red, silver and black...I almost picked it up when it first came out, but was distracted by my new favorite colors...expensive pink and twinks...LOVE THEM! I am so excited to view your tutorials and learn new tips and tricks!!! I wish you lived in Arizona! :(

Becky, you can buy the palettes at a MAC store. If you are wondering about the Kohl's Palette...well that is at Kohl's =). I think it might even be on sale now....wait you bought that one right? I will post about how I store everything!!! KATY!!!!! Promise me that the tutorial you found on de-potting did NOT include using heat or fire. If it does DO NOT DO IT!!!!! You run the risk of damaging the color and I can teach you how without the use of those things. Let me know =). Rachel??? Send me some pictures of you sister!!! I would LoVe to see my twin =)!!!!!

Becky said...

Yeah, I do have the Kohl's, I meant that I had no idea that the Kohl's shadows would fit inside of a MAC palette. :o)

If people want to buy the Kohl's set, they have a Kohl's card and want to buy that online, right now there is a 30% off code and free shipping code (you can use two codes per order).. just google and you can find them.

Yup all the ones I found either used a something like a flat iron or fire of some sort, I haven't depotted anything yet, good thing I checked back here before I did.

Rachel said...
