… I’ve never depotted before. Which is basically the beauty blogger equivalent of a whore admitting that she’s never actually done it before. Not that I’m calling beauty bloggers whores.
Wait, where was I?
Well, it was Saturday night and I had about 20 minutes before I was supposed to be in bed, which obviously made it the ideal time to get out a bunch of eyeshadows, light a candle and kiss goodbye to a perfectly good cuticle pusher.
So the above Z-Palette is now made up of a mixture of depots and pressed pigments. I didn’t sacrifice any of my expensive shadows in the making of this… the whole exercise is an attempt to make me use more of the shades that I’ve been neglecting. There’s a right old hotch-potch in there – you may recognise some MUA, Art Deco, MAC, The Body Shop, Mary Quant, Maybelline, and NYX. The ones with bumpy texture are my pressed pigments (mostly The She Space, Shiro Cosmetics and Victorian Disco).
All in all, it didn’t go too badly. I gouged a couple (and quickly re-pressed), dented the pans on more than a couple (what’s a few dinks between friends?) and shattered one (didn’t like it much anyway). Am I game to do the same for my more cherished eyeshadows? Am I naff.
Do you depot? Always or just sometimes?
