So last night I got my butter knife, Sharpie and tape out to get to work. It was so easy! There's a little groove right to the top of the jar when the cap is off and the knife fits right in. I wrote their names underneath with the Sharpie and taped them to the clear plastic insert in the palette. I got this all from the lovely ladies in ColourPop Fanatics, I by no means thought of this myself. I used regular tape as opposed to double sided because I feel like it would work better to stick the pans in because it could get tricky pressing them down because the double-sided tape is so flat since there isn't much of a ridge to press on (you would have to press on the shadows directly to get them super flat). Another girl in the group said she used velcro, I may try that next. It honestly took me 15 minutes from start to finish. I would say a minute per shadow. It will hold 20 ColourPop shadows. I organized them in rows by finish, Ultra Metallic (top), Metallic (middle) and Pearlized/Matte (bottom). I think I will purchase the rest according to the spaces left. Since the palette is made for paint, there are little wells in the main part that we can't use so essentially the palette is upside down in the way it functions as an eye shadow palette. You'll see what I mean in the pictures below. I kept all my containers in the boxes in case I notice them starting to dry out. Girls in the group have had theirs in this palette for over a month without issues. I just have to make sure to close it properly each time. Just like I do when screwing the covers back on the actual containers.
This morning looking at it upside down was so boring so I got all arts & crafty and cut images from the little care pamphlets ColourPop sends with each order...and I kept thankfully. Inside I put the actual usage instructions and tips just to have them there in that empty space. On the "top" I cut out from the front of the pamphlet with the word "ColourPop" and used the inside image they had for the shadows. Then I realized after cutting, all that was left was the sentence "Super Shock Shadow", perfect! So I just stuck that on top! Ha!

This collage pic is my little journey. Top, 1- Cornrows with a little braiding hair. 2- Adding untwisted Havana Jumbo Twist hair in Purple and 1B. 12" cut in half. Bottom, 3- Hair is in, before cut and shape. 4- Cut, shaped and styled.
I did them over last night so I will be putting up a post about that soon.
I used all 3 shades. The matte "Warm Highlight" shade to set my undereye concealer and nose. I used the included brush to place the "Deep Contour" shade then my own duo fiber brush to blend it out. The "Terracotta Bronze" shade I used as a blush and brought it up to my hairline (I do this with all of my blushes).
The first picture shows my cheekbone contour. It's not a dramatic contour as I was going to work AND it was a Friday, but it's more than my natural contour is without makeup. I don't contour everyday but I definitely go nuts with highlighting and blushing 😝
The second picture is a look at my nose contour. The contour and the camera angle make my face and nose look more slim (it's magic!)
Rest of makeup:
Eyes- Avon Supershock Gel liner in Cobalt, top and bottom. Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette, Spoiled and Pink Champagne for brow highlight and Fudge for brow bone.
Highlighter- NYX Enigmatic with a little MAC Stereo Rose on top.
Lips- Wet n Wild Fergie Penthouse Sweet w/NYX Bloom liner.
