I LOVE the empty MAC Pro palettes! For the empty palette alone (inserts not included), they are only $8 and FREE SHIPPING on the MAC website! I love these palettes because they are sturdy and great for traveling. I definitely recommend using a little extra magnetic tape on the bottom of the pans (for non- MAC shadows) for a better and more secure hold.
I have a double sided pro palette which holds my ABH contour kit shades and some Wet N Wild blushes that I depotted, but I am just going to show my single one today because I personally think the colors are more exciting. Also, both the double and single sided palettes are $8. Purchasing these empty palettes will save you a ton of money because on the MAC website, the eyeshadow pans are only $6 rather than purchasing the pan in the compact. The individual pans from MAC come with a magnet already on the bottom so you can just pop it in the palette! This will also save you space and help declutter your makeup stash.
** If you depot 6 MAC eyeshadows, you can bring back the empty compacts to a MAC store and trade them in for a free eyeshadow or lipstick!**
I like how the cover is clear so I can see my shadows. The plastic cover is very thick and not as flimsy as the Z-Palette covers.

The four square pans at the bottom are from a Sephora Desert Sunset eyeshadow palette from a while ago (I think it was limited edition)
The two rectangular pans are “Blackout” from the UD Naked 2 palette and “Blackheart” from the UD Naked 3 palette (I also depotted all the shadows from my Naked 2 and 3 palettes and put them in another pro palette, that way I could toss the bulky packaging and have them all in one spot).
I hope y’all enjoyed this post and go out and buy your own Pro Palette or saw some shadows that you really liked. It is so satisfying to depot eyeshadows and reduce some of that clutter!
