Inglot IMATS palette and how to depot Inglot shadows with a magnet

 

I’ve finally gotten around to swatching the Inglot shadows I purchased at IMATS. If you haven’t tried Inglot yet, I would highly recommend that you give them a go- the quality and colour range in the eyeshadows in knock your socks off.

Depotting Inglot eye shadows- the Saga.

Now some of my favourite shadows are Inglot, but I don’t use them as often as I like because the Inglot palettes are so heavy and cumbersome. I really wanted to be able to depot those Inglot shadows and carry them around with my MAC shadows in a Z Palette.

The first thing I tried was trying to get a pin in the space between the shadow and the palette to try and lever it out. After stabbing 2 of my Inglot shadows by accident with the pin, I decided that this was not a long term solution.

Second thing I tried was using the magnet on the palette lid to try and pull the shadows out (there are a few youtube tutorials demonstrating this technique). I’m not entirely sure why this works for some people but not for me- I spent over an hour trying to run the magnets around the metal of the pan in every which way but the shadow pan did not budge.

And by this stage I was like a woman possessed. I had wasted the better part of a Sunday afternoon trying to move the damn shadows and could not rest until I found a way to do it. So I got in my car and drove to the nearest hardware store for the strongest damn magnet they had.

I can tell you now, Bunnings has a terrible range of magnets. I picked up the strongest one I could find, and at first I was pretty confident that a big horse shoe the size of my hand would be more than enough. It hardly stuck to my fridge. If I was that magnet I would be ashamed of myself.

I ended up finding an online retailer of magnets (Aussie Magnets ) and got myself a rare earth rod shaped magnet (shown above) with 7.2kg pulling power. [insert manly Tim Allen-esque power grunt here]

Ok, so I might have over specified. I almost burst an artery trying to get this off the fridge, and when I held it near my Inglot palette, it snapped 4 eye shadow pans up with such violence that it left a little cloud of eye shadow dust in the air. I’m not kidding. [insert manly Tim Allen-esque power grunt here]
