I'm happy to witness my makeup collection grow day by day, but unfortunately, along with this beautiful growth is the loss of precious space. Again, there are mini stacks of boxes for my makeup palettes beside my Muji mobile drawer and it's making my already small room look smaller than what it is. I wish I could let go of the palettes that came along with my makeups, but they are just too cute to throw away!
Just this afternoon, I found myself staring at these customizable palettes by Wild Peach Cosmetics. They're the local (and much cheaper and accessible) versions of the famed ZPalette. ZPalette retails at $15-20, depending on the size, and plus shipping to the Philippines and other miscellaneous fees, the overall cost would be over P1,500.00. There are local versions, but as far as I know, they retail at P600.00 and up, but Wild Peach Cosmetics' versions are just below P600.00! I heard you said "Cool!"-I AGREE!
Going back to my solemn moment with these palettes, I had envisioned how clutter- free my room would be if the mini boxes are already out of sight and finally, that much- needed courage to discard my individual makeup palettes has hit me so I grabbed some tools and started depotting.
The first palettes that I've gotten rid of were the ones in boxes, and I'm going to show you how I did it. For now, let's check out these palettes. Click READ MORE and know how these palettes can truly help you organize your makeup!
WILD PEACH COSMETICS PERSONAL AND LARGE PALETTE IN DETAIL
Both palettes are quite sturdy enough to protect your makeup pans from any light fall yet lightweight, come with a clear, acrylic cover, and magnetic closures.
Here is the personal palette. It comes in a range of designs, and I chose this sassy Leopard print 'cuz i'm digging anything animal- printed nowadays. Dimensions are as follows: Inner- 5.4"x2.8"x.3 Outer- 6.03"x3.43"x0.54. It's small enough to fit in your bag, although a little big for a standard- sized makeup kit.
It comes with a free sheet of magnetic sticker and depotting instructions.
Here's the large palette. It only comes in one color, black, and comes with a free sheet of magnetic sticker as well. Dimensions are as follows: Inner- 7.67" x 5.32" x .44" Outer- 8.38" x 6.03" x 0.68" Clear Window- 6.95" x 4.50".
It's a great palette for makeup- artists as it can house a lot of pans!
I haven't seen the ZPalette in actual so I don't know how these would compare with the former, but it does the same thing so I recommend it as a great alternative! These customizable palettes are handy for anyone because it helps you save space, minimize bulk, and allows you to mix and match your makeup products depending on your mood for the day without having to bring tons of individual palettes!
Here's a basic guide on how to use Wild Peach Cosmetics' Customizable Palettes:
Step 1: Grab your pans and trace them on top of the provided magnetic sticker.
Step 2: Cut the traced portion, stick it onto the pan, peel out the white paper, and you're done!
TIP: Save that magnetic sticker sheet by using smaller portions. You don't really need to cover the entire bottom of the pan with the sticker-just cut out a portion that's enough to hold the pan on the palette.
HOW TO DEPOT MAKEUP IN BOX PACKAGING
The most space- consuming palettes for me are the ones in box packaging as most of them are heavily lined with layers and layers of cardboard and paper, like my Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV. The main cover of this thing is cute, but it's useless anyway so I decided to get rid of this first.
For this tutorial, you will only need a small yet heavy- duty cutter and some serious control over your hands. It's better to use a mini cutter because you can maneuver it better than the longer ones.
Step 1: Push up the cutter around 1cm from the base, and gently slice the sides of the pan, as if you're creating dips on it. This will create enough space for you to insert the cutter underneath the pan easily.
Step 2: When you can finally insert the tip of the cutter, push the remaining part of cutter all the way up and slice the glue underneath in a gentle, sideward motion.
Step 3: When the pan has loosened up from the base, pull it upwards slowly and carefully. If the glue's too tacky, twist the pan until it pops from the base.
Next time, I'll show you how to depot makeup in plastic packaging.
Voila! Goodbye, Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV box! There were some casualties, but for a first- timer, I think I did a good job! :)
Depotting is fun so.....
I did it to my Feelin' Dandy set....
and to my I'm Glam Therefore I am palette.
Omigosh. Somebody take the cutter from me or else, I'll depot anything I can! LOL!
Here you go. I didn't need to put magnetic stickers on the bottom of the pans as they clung on their own on the magnetized pan. It also feels like I have a new makeup palette! :) By the way, the large palette can also house slim eye pencils. :)
