In anticipation of my Z-Palette and Unii Palettes being delivered I thought I’d start depotting my single shadows so they’re all prepared and ready to be popped in when they arrive. The main reason I wanted the palettes was for my many MUA shadows that don’t get much use because they’re singles, unfortunately they are the hardest things to depot ever!
Unlike MAC singles they don’t seem to have a pop out insert so you have to burn all the way through the bottom of the packaging to push out the pan. Some were easier than others but for some reason the matte shades (my personal favourites) were the worst for cracking. I planned to depot all of the below shadows..
I ended up just doing the MUA’s and the W7s (top left 3) for now. The W7’s were actually much easier, they were pretty much the same packaging as MAC ones, just bigger. I did do a “how-to” video on depotting MAC shadows a while ago so check that out if you’re interested in how to do it. I know there are many methods out there but this is how I did it…
I basically used the same technique to push the pans out of my MUA shadows just without pushing out the inserts. If any of you are aware of an easier way to do it or that you can actually push out an insert then PLEASE let me know because I’m going to pick up replacements for the one’s I broke at the weekend as well as the few I am missing (for £1 each I want the whole colour range!) so I will have to do some more and intend to make a video for those of you that have requested one so if you have any tips you’d like to share then go ahead and leave me a comment.
So excited to receive my palettes. Have any of you depotted your shadows for a Z/Unii Palette???
