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!
