Tutorial: Depotting MAC Shadows

I depot my MAC shadows using a regular clothes iron and some parchment paper. It works well, and I never have any casualties. I’m sorta afraid of fire, so I try to avoid having to use it if possible. But later, I’ll post another tutorial to show how I depotted my Smashbox shadows also. It’s my very first video tutorial, so be nice :-) But let me know what you think! Toward the end I did a mini-review of one of the new ZPalettes I got. I will do a full review of them very soon, so stay tuned!

    I’ve always done it the dangerous way with small candle or lighter to loosen the glue. Thanks for showing me safer method…can’t tell you how many times I’ve burned my fingers. LOL. And I never would take the labels off…just hand-write label on bottom. Learn something new ever day. Thanks for sharing!!!
