AURALINE BEAUTY 26mm/15 Pan Palette- Rating: ♥

In comparison to MAC's 15 pro pan palettes the Auraline Beauty 15 pro pan palettes do not come close to MAC's quality. There are a couple of positive sides to the Auraline ones, such as the Auraline palettes are smaller and have a mirror, but that sums the pros right on up. The Auraline palette is cheaply made from some type of faux leather looking materials with a magnetic closure which quickly tears up. The seams on the palette comes un-glued and the magnetics fall out making it impossible to close. The palette is magnetic, but it is so weak that your shadows will still fall out. HORRIBLE!! Also, the divider in the inside of the palette is coated in this porus plastic which makes it impossible to clean. I paid $8 USD for this palette, and it was a total waste of money. Even if you are buying this as a cheap alternative to use for your drugstore eyeshadows don't do it. I would suggest putting them into ELF quads instead, they are much better quality.

AURALINE BEAUTY- 36mm/15 Pan Palette- Rating: ♥♥♥

Palettes are the first make up storage item that I ever got into. I first heard about the Pro Palettes from MAC. I later decided to search for some different palettes to store all of my HiP, ULTA, Prestige eyeshadows, and Jane blushes in. This hunt led me to the online beauty supply store known as Auraline Beauty. They are one of the few places I could actually find a 36 mm palette that was not paper. So if you are looking for a palette for your Jane or Old Style Milani Blushes, or your HiP Duos take a look at their site. Now there is a minimum order of $50, but I think their shipping is free. The site does a crappy job of giving descriptions of the products. So, I thought I would give it a try for you. The 36 mm palette is $7.00 USD. The palette is made of plastic with a hard foam divider, and a snap closure. It comes with little adhesive dots in each pan slot to secure you pans with. That is the only thing I didn't like about the palette. I prefer it to have a metal bottom so that I can secure my pans with a magnet on the bottom. However, for the price I guess you can't be so particular. After you fill your palette it looks nice and neat, and makes for great storage. So, all and all I guess I would say that this palette is a pretty good buy.
