I`ve bought a few of these in order to depot some of my eyeshadows so it`s easier to travel with and so I can take only the colors I want to use. I`ve seen others do this which is where I got the idea to do this.
What I did was pop out the plastic in the middle of the compact. You can leave the bottom metal square in it but I took it out and replaced with with a weak magnet. I used those free law firm fridge magnets that come on a phone book (which are really, really weak) but if you buy stronger magnet sheets from the craft store it`d probably be better. I also have to glue magnet squares to the bottom of the eyeshadows I depot but if you get a strong magnet to use at the bottom it should be good enough to keep your eyeshadows in the compact without the magnet.
You can easily Google methods to depot eyeshadow. I used rubbing alcohol, a Q-tip, and a sewing needle. I depotted some of my e.l.f. eyeshadows that were in the 100-piece palette. I hate busting out that huge palette or bringing it with me. It`s flat but large and since the packaging feels a little cheap I`m afraid of breaking it.
I`ve also depotted some of my single/duo/trio eyeshadows. I`m glad I did this because now my makeup storage had more room and there`s no bulky packaging for just a few shadows.
For only $1, these compacts are affordable and come with a giant mirror. I really like them.
