Depotting Adventures: Mi Vida Loca Remix Edition

Hello, class! One of the coolest palettes I’ve ever gotten my hands on – ever- is the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette. Modeled after a record and sleeve, this palette boasts 24 shadows of glorious variety.Depotting Mi Vida Loca Remix

Cute, right? It’s also incredibly annoying to use. I don’t think I ever pulled the palette out of the sleeve without getting my finger in that blue shadow…

So I began to think this would be an opportunity for some depotting practice. Unfortunately, there were few written posts online about depotting Mi Vida Loca Remix, and I am not big on watching YouTube tutorials. Some Instagram followers told me they saw that others had had difficulty depotting this palette.  I became wary, but still eager to try. I went on Beautylish and ordered a handy dandy Z Palette and their De-Potting Spatula. I sat down at 9:00 PM and began.

This was the easiest depotting experience of my life. The pans basically popped right out. They were held on with tiny amounts of glue that were easily removed. I wrote the shade names on the back in Sharpie, and popped them into the Z Palette (they are metal pans so they snap right in!)

Here are some progress shots:

No shadows were broken in the making of my new palette. I used a “large” size Z Palette and still had room to spare, so I filled in with some of my Anastasia Beverly Hills and MAC pans.

The Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette immediately became easier for me to handle, and I am thrilled with the way this came out. What do you think? I challenge you to de-pot an ungainly palette! Leave your link below!
