I depotted my NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils!

I had 8 NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencils in which I primarily use to line my waterline using an eyeliner brush. The pencils are a little too large to line my eyes precisely, and I tend to make a mess sometimes while rubbing the brush on the pencil to get product on it. So I figured they would better serve their purpose in a pot. I depotted (or depenciled) them rather using the microwave method and 5 gram jars. Now I have my own little “paint pots”…

Nyx Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils Depotted

 I used part of the barcode from the pencils to create labels for the jars. This was quick and easy to do… and not only did I make my products easier to use, I created some much needed space in my train case while doing so!

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    The only 1 I own is milk. I depotted it a while ago using a blow dryer. Works much better that way.
