The SheaMoisture Create-Your-Palette Magnetic Tin in large retails for $9.99. You can purchase it at Target in-store or online and this brand is often on sale. In fact, right now you can get the palettes for 15% off. It's about the same size as a large Zpalette but at half the cost. The biggest difference is that this is a metal palette and doesn't have the clear window that makes Zpalettes so popular since you can easily see what's inside. Even still, you can always label them on the outside. I don't know about you but cost outweighs that con for me.

-Cheaper -No see through window
-Metal is more durable -Scratches easily
-Depth accommodates baked shadows/blushes
-The cover can double as more storage space
I was able to fit 5 8-pan palettes into the bottom of the palette. I noticed that the top also had some depth to it and if I stayed away from the edges I could put some eyeshadows up there as well and it would still be able to close without touching the other shadows below it. So I was able to fit an additional 10 trios on the top. There was a little space for more but my other trios are limited edition and I want them all together so I will probably leave it like this. The palette is a little heavier now but I shook it up and turned it over several times with a some force and nothing moved. So needless to say I just placed an order for another large and a small palette as well. I love how it turned out!
How to Depot:
Depotting makeup is pretty much done the same with all products with some slight changes. You need a heat source either a candle or some people use a flat iron. I used a candle but the flat iron may be safer. You can also use a lighter but I find it runs out of lighter fluid fast especially if you have a lot of deporting to do. Essentially you have to burn the back of the palette to melt the glue that's keeping the pans inside the palette. So you melt the plastic enough so that you can stick a sharp object (screw driver, push pin etc.) through. Be careful and be patient. If you melt it enough to where the plastic bubbles up a little then you can easily push it out without any force. I rushed a couple in the beginning and nicked some of my eye shadows.
