MAC New Pro Palettes


This year MAC decided to redo their pro palettes and give it a sleeker look with a clear lid, and the option to add different inserts.
New Palettes Available:                                            New Inserts Available:
Pro Palette Large/Single                                              Pro Palette Eye Shadow x15
Pro Palette Large/Duo                                                 Pro Blush Palette x6
                                                                                     Pro Palette Eye Shadow x12 (Pro Only)
                                                                                     Pro Palette Eye Shadow x24 (Pro Only)
Pro Palette Large Single Can fit 24 shadows without the insert.  I am not sure how many blushes you can fit in there, and of course you can just mix and match shadows and blushes if you decide not to include the insert. 
Pro Palette Eye Shadow x15  Is the insert that will allow you to place only 15 shadows within the Pro Palette.  I don't think this is necessary but it just makes it look organized and prettier to look at in my opinion.

Packaging
I love how the palette looks shiny and sleeker compared to the old one. These new palettes look just like the pro palette x4 and pro palette x2. The clear top makes it easier to find the color that you need without having to open and go through your palettes. It is thicker and heavier than the original palette but the original palette is a bit wider.   
Placing the inserts is easy as 1,2,3.  Just place it in the palette and pop it in.  When it comes to removing the insert, it took me some time to figure it out. All I did was twist each side in opposite directions and it should just pop out. 

Performance
This palette does what it is supposed to do which is store your eye shadows and blushes so that you can carry it around or just store it with the rest of your makeup

  2. Oh wow I didn't even know they updated the palette. I must've just bought my palette before these came out because I bought one and it's still the old design. Anyways thanks for the post :)

  3. is the bottom of the palette magnetic so it could hold the shadows without falling like the z palette? or do you need to get the insert for the shadows to hold?

  5. I just ordered this palette and can't wait :) look so elegant and classy!! I ordered the 15 eyeshadow insert too. I own 15 mac shadows in refill pans and 1 in a regular pan, so that's just enough to fill up the palette. I read in a few blogs that people who use this without the insert, experienced that the shadows move around. That the magnets is not strong. But other blogs says its strong and the shadows does not move around. Have you had that problem with the one without the insert? Great review by the way :-) and I love your eyeshadows :-)
