HOW TO DEPOT A MORPHE 35O PALETTE INTO A Z PALETTE

Firstly, I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you really feel as though the Morphe palette is way too big, which I did. It didn't even fit into my acrylic drawer storage which isn't exactly small, and it's totally inconvenient to travel with. I thought I'd write a little blog post about how I did it as I know a lot of people feel that the Morphe palette is way too big.

The 35O palette has an inner plastic area which is easy to lift up at one corner using something slim and strong. I gradually worked my way around the edge with tweezers and scissors, prising up each part that had been glued down. Once the entire base was out of the palette, give or take a few areas that I had to cut around as they were glued down too strongly, I simply stuck my tweezers underneath the pan and gently prised the it out. The glue used to stick the thin plastic base to the plastic outside packaging is very thick and it didn't seem to budge with a hairdryer, so I was stuck with the good old-fashioned prising method, whilst hoping for the best! Z Palette say that you can depot eyeshadows using a hairdryer but you'll be sitting there all day with the Morphe palette. They're cheaply made in China so don't expect a miracle when you depot them.

One I was done, I used a baby wipe to clean the pan as it was quite dirty afterwards but other than that, most of them were fine! I stuck a magnet on the bottom because Morphe eyeshadows aren't magnetic, which is something I find really annoying and kind of backwards given that most people use magnetic eyeshadow palettes these days... It's also worth noting that some of the eyeshadows will break if you do this, I managed to break four :( Two of which I really wanted to keep, but I guess that's the price you pay.

This is my finished palette, minus the colours I didn't want to keep and sold on Depop.
I'm hoping to get some Makeup Geek pans to fill that bottom row!

    1. I don't think Morphe do shade names for their eyeshadows, but I know people write online what numbers they are, I don't know though unfortunately! Have a look on Google and see what comes up :) x
