How To Save Money On MAC Makeup

I loveeeeeeeeee MAC makeup (everything but their foundation, I don’t love that) but it’s safe to call it a downright addiction. Why? Because NO OTHER COMPANY makes eye shadows that blend as beautifully as they do. Especially their matte shades. MAC matte eyeshadow blends like an angel slid across your eyelid, belly first, leaving behind an effortless perfection of color. Yep. I said it.

The kicker? Those beautiful shades usually cost $16 a pop. $16!!!! If you need three for a new makeup trend or season? That’s over $50 with tax. No thanks…. I know how to load an entire pallet for less than that. Here’s how ….. You’re welcome.

$6 MAC Eyeshadow Say What?!

MAC now sells refill eye shadows for $6, but you have to know how to ask. When you go into the store tell them you need eyeshadow refills for your pallet. For the best selections, go to a stand alone store versus a nordstroms kiosk if you can. They come in the cute little packages with just the shallow tin and eyeshadow. You can also purchase your blush, concealer, and pressed powders this way! you save a ton. But how do you store them?

Z Pallets

You may or may not have heard about these, Z pallets are empty makeup pallets that are AMAZING for customizing and storing your makeup. They are magnetic, so just you pop all of your favorite eye shadows, any brand, right inside! They even come with a little key that I use to dig out my favorite colors from big bulky pallets to stick inside my Z. Most makeup pans are metal so they just magnetically stick inside. You can get smaller ones at Sephora, but my favorite is to order them HERE on Amazon to save money and time.

MAC does sell empty customizable pallets, but they are overly large, you cannot fit many colors inside, and you can’t use them for other makeup brands.

Check out how I customized my Z pallet in my quick tutorial.
