It just got me thinking of other office options and the small portable filing cabinet that I think my dad my still have lying around...lol. Anything meant for folders would be great for palettes!

This is what I'm currently keeping them in:

 

700

 

It's just a medium to large Caboodles case. I have them here because I don't have a vanity and the lights in the bathroom cast a yellow tone, so I actually sit on the floor in my living room and set up a round stand mirror and do my makeup there. I like sitting on the floor! lol (ballerina fo' life!) I have big big plans for a walk in closet with a nice vanity and drawers with organizers though in the (hopefully near) future! In this case are all of my palettes. Coastal Scents, Urban Decay, Nyx, L'Oreal duos, Z Palette, Lorac and a Too Faced. Plus my Coastal Scents blushes. biggrin.gif It just helps me to be portable for now.

Omg that's genius!! I must have one!! They also have wall hanging ones so that could be an option unless the palettes would be too heavy??

Aw, I'm sorry. I had to stop dancing professionally from 2 herniated discs, but I continued to teach since I'd always intended to be a teacher. So are you still teaching other ages?

On a secondary note...I have been swatching the 120 Palette FOUR from Coastal Scents today...pics up soon! Yaaaay!

I may or may not be drooling a little right now. SO GORGEOUS. 

I have been debating picking up this & the Ultra Shimmer Palette. smile.gif These swatches seal the deal!

I bought the ultra shimmer palette a couple of weeks ago and it's amaaazing! I have the 120 Palette one, too, but I reach for the Ultra Shimmer pretty much every day. You'll love it!

 

I also have the 22 brush set. I am really impressed with them! Great quality for the price, Definitely worth it, I haven't used my other brushes since I got them.

I forgot to add the 120 Palette Four to the pic, I set it aside for review and I have the 120 Five coming to me soon!

oh my! I think I had to wipe up some drool after looking at this pic.

 

does anyone in here know if it's true that CS palettes are the same as BH Cosmetics and the eBay ones?

 

also if anyone is interested I have the UD BoS 2, TF Summer Eye '12, NYX Crimson Amulet, Tarte Aqualillies palettes', and then some random singles and Hard Candy sets my sis gave me if anyone is interested in swatches? Also, one of the aforementioned 120 eBay palettes...  ^__^

i ended up placing the order without brushes last night...which just means i need another order now...and most likely another palette...why pay shipping for just brushes right? at least that's the reason i'm going with to justify others i wanted but couldn't quite buckle down and add...lol.

 

 

not like i need brushes...i have somewhere in the 30's range right now for my eyes alone...but i'm always looking for new ones that may suit me...lol

Question... how much is their shipping?  The Q&A on the site seems very mysterious about shipping costs.

 

Also, hoping to have some GDE samples to swatch here in the next few days!  Giddy with excitement!

when you have an item in your cart you can calculate the shipping prior to purchase, it bases it off your zip code...for me it was 5.29 to ship my palette, but i got  1.50 off using the points i got for registering, and the palette was on sale for 8.95...all in all i paid $13...which is not bad for 88 shadows imo.

So I probably should have waited for natural light to do swatches and pics but I was bored so here it is! While my collection isn't as extensive as some because I tend to stick to what I have and like a lot it was still quite a bit of swatching for my poor arm. This is going to broken into a few posts because I'm not sure about the picture limit on posts?

 

Anyways! First is a set of baked shadows my mom gave me. I'm pretty sure they were a Walmart xmas set. I had swatched these before so y'all are gettin the pics that were on my hard drive already:

 

700

 

Greens:

700

 

Uh, pinks?:

700

 

Blues (and the bright one stains like a PITA!):

700

 

 

And then the Hard Candy Eye Sparkler sets my sis gave me:

700

 

1st Set (wish I had dif coloring, the copper color is gorg! but would look weird on me):

700

 

2nd set:

700

 

3rd set (almost no color pay-off with this one, not sure why I haven't tossed it yet...):

700

 

And my 2 lonely cream shadows, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded (didn't realize this was 'metallic' when I bought it *facepalm*) and mini Stila Smudge pot in Bronze:

700

 

700

 

Then there's my Too Faced Summer Eye '12 Palette:

700

 

Grabbed this mostly for the row down the middle (coral for the win!), the 'base' colors barely show at all:

700

 

Tarte Aqualillies palette:

700

 

Only swatched the shadows, the 2nd from the left is a really pretty duochrome:

700

 

(end part 1)
