First Time Depotting...

 - So I started with these (and then added two more Rimmel's and a Sally Girl shadow).   Then I started depoting these since I got my palette from TKB today, yay.
 - And all of those turned into these.

Here's a shot, with flash, of the palette closed.
 - I broke the two Rimmel's getting them out, they were really the only casualties, the pots they're in bend more easily and they must be softer shadows or something.  I was really not happy about breaking them, the blue on top wasn't as badly damaged as the turquoise.   For now I'll leave them in here since they're still useable.
 - You can see one or two others did get poke marks when my needle slipped but all in all I thought I did a good job. 

That's 16 singles shadows and two trios.

The WnW and Maybelline's definitely look the best since they're square.
- I'm proud of em, now I need a new palette, this one did end up being smaller than I thought, or maybe I used bigger shadows, they are kind of long ones.

I did write down what everything was and in what order I currently laid it so I won't forget.   Although I might change the layout around a bit and then just write up a new sheet.

Looks awesome. Have you ever thought about using stickers to label the shadows on the underside? That's what I did, that why no matter where they get moved I still know what they are :) Just an idea!! Great post

Raeven, I did do that with most of them, I put a labeling sticker on them, which also helped with some of the glue residue I couldn't quite get off.

And thank you!

Peach, Thank you! I was sooo sad to see they're sold out for months on TKB now, I went back after I filled this last night to try and get another one since I have more I want to put in another one. Sadness.
