Some time ago, Anastasia, Mary and I visited an Inglot shop. I really liked the shop, good lighting, minimal design, helpful assistants. I also loved Inglot Freedom System. What is it? All eyeshadows, blushes, powder, bronzers and most lipsticks are in pans so that you can create your very own customised palette. Inglot sells many different empty palettes for you to choose.
So after a little browing I chose 3 beautiful eyeshadow shades.
I wanted a colour like MAC's Melon, you know orange-gold-coral-ish. I found #407 and fell in love with it! Then I found #419 which is a lovely olive green-gold colour. I don't think I have a similar shade so I got it too. And #434 which is a graphite grey-silver colour, I love grey eyeshadows, they are softer than black but smokey enough.
And I was about to grab a 3-shadow empty palette. When I thought I
This what the empty palette looks like when you get it (minus the eyeshadows of course). As you can see it fits 4 round eyeshadows. But the Inglot eyeshadows are square so here's what I did.
Now, you are left with a square palette with a metallic sheet. This sheet is not glued and it's not magnetic.
Now you have 2 options. Either stick magnet to the eyeshadow pans (you can find round magnets at ebay) or to the palette. Because the Inglot eyeshadows have a sticker with the number of the shadow on the back I chose to stick a magnet on the palette. So the metallic sheet was useless and I removed it.
If you want to stick magnets to your eyeshadows, you have to stick the metallic sheet to the palette.

What do you think? Have you tried Inglot products? Do you like this little trick with the e.l.f. empty palette?
