I'm going lay down the math to show savings for you in a bit, but using palettes rather than pots is a really good idea because it will save you soo much space! Especially if you have a lot of makeup and need to carry it around in a train case. You can also save a lot of time and hassle, say you have 30 eyeshadows and you're looking for one specific color; would you prefer look through 30 different pots or just open two palettes?
I totally understand that it's a matter of preference. For example, I do NOT like the idea of having my blushes in a palette... only my shadows. It's the crazy in me =]
Now! Fifteen eyeshadow pots would cost you $217..
To fill one 15 shadow palette you would purchase a palette ($12) and fifteen pan refills ($165) for a total of $177 spent. That's a $40 savings!
Keep in mind if you depot your shadows you should take advantage of the Back to MAC program and claim your free lipstick(s)!
