How To: Depot UD Deluxe & Sephora Eyeshadows

First off, I made a new signature for the bottom of my posts. I felt like I've had the older one for awhile, so I'm switching it up a bit. :) I have now reached 200 followers (THANK YOU!!) and will hopefully find time to start the giveaway this week. I say hopefully because I don't know how much I will be updating this week. I have plans three of the nights and I'm sick with a cold and allergies. Oh joy. The giveaway is coming though, I promise!

Now, here is my tutorial for how I depot Urban Decay Deluxe eyeshadows. I have one loose Sephora eyeshadow and it is depotted the same way, so I'm throwing that in the post too. These, I'm very happy to say, require no heat and take no time at all to get out of their casing! I would suggest using a hair straightener to heat the labels to peel them off, if you want the original ones. I just used some of my own labels to save time and energy.

- something with a sharp point (I use a knife)
- magnets
- labels (optional)
- palette to put the items

Here are my two UD shadows that I will be depotting.

Taking the point of the knife, place it in one of the corners and very gently start to wiggle the pan up. Do it slowly because you don't want the shadow to break. There is only one small droplet of glue in the center making these pretty easy to wedge out.

I placed a magnet and my label on them. Something about having to write in small spaces makes my handwriting sloppy. The perfectionist side of me hates it, but the other side of me says "Who cares!" and that side usually wins. ;)

Now, here is the eyeshadow from Sephora. I got this last year as part of the birthday freebies that they give.

Just like with the UD ones, you just slide the knife gently into the gap between the pan and casing. The glue is nearly non-existent on these and mine popped right out.

I hope that this was helpful!
