MAC Compact Switcheroo

So I get bored with my MAC compacts and switch them around from time-to-time. It's easy to do!

I popped Shell Pearl out of its Liberty of London casing and I'm putting it into the plain black MSF Natural case. You just pop the black pan out by putting a knife or something pointy between the pan and the case and just pop it out. Just like when you're taking the pan out of the eyeshadow cases!

So now my Shell Pearl is in my MSF case.

Here is the original Liberty of London compact. I love the packaging!

So I took my MSF Natural from its compact and placed it in there. So now I have a pretty compact to whip out for touch-ups! Even better that it is now in a compact with a mirror.

You can do this with any of their compacts that are the same size. If switching MSFs, make sure the dome is flat. If you put in a brand new one, the beauty powder compacts will not close. Thought this might help some of you since there are some gorgeous beauty powders coming out with the Venomous Villains! If you know you won't use the original product that often, why not switch it around with one that you will! :)

Hope this made sense!

Thanks! I was just wondering a few days ago whether popping the compact pans out was easy. No need to heat up the bottom of the pans with a candle flame?

I´ll definitely be reusing my To The Beach compact as I´m almost out of my golden bronzing powder.

@Shopcoholic- You're welcome!

@Georgina- Heat is not at all needed. You just put the knife in between the rim and the pan and push upward (like the first step where you depot eyeshadows- my tutorial is here: http://www.fashionableheart.com/2010/08/how-to-depot-eyeshadows.html). Then, you just pop them in. When you want to remove them, you just do the same thing. :)

So glad that you will have new use for your compact!
