The Palette by Salt New York
- Depot the makeup that you own.
- Purchase pan-only makeup from one of the many brands that offer it including but not limited to: Mac, Makeup Geek, Bobbi Brown, Makeup Forever, Face Atelier, Stila, Laura Mercier, and in the near future: Salt New York—stay tuned.
- Holds brushes, liners, pencils, domed powders, and other makeup products and tools*
*Must have a depth of .4"or less.
- You know when you put makeup in a bag and it clangs together and breaks and coats literally every millimeter of every object in your bag in infuriatingly-difficult-to-remove dusty garbage particles? Yeah, let's not do that anymore. The Palette keeps everything secure and sidesteps the entire makeup bumper car situation. Yay for not opening your bag and saying, "ughhhhh whhyyEEEEE????"
- Wouldn't it be nice to only have to open up one compact when you are applying your makeup and not have to juggle between blush compacts, bronzer compacts, and 2 different eyeshadow palettes? And also have that compact include a mirror that's big enough to view more than half of one eyebrow at once? Yes. Yes it would be nice. Back us on kickstarter and it can be reality instead of just a hypothetical magic land of organized makeup and convenience.
- We would like to extend the sincerest middle finger to the concept of planned obsolescence. Using the highest quality, eco-friendly, post-consumer recycled materials and vegan leather, we built The Palette to last.
- In the US, cosmetics packaging accounts for upwards of 25 million tons of waste annually. Buying makeup in the pan addresses this issue head on—it's the thing purchasing equivalent of saying to Mama Nature, "I gotchu."
What is Depotting?
Depotting is the process of removing the metal pans from your makeup compacts and palettes. Here's a tutorial showing Kiki's preferred method.

Risks and challenges
This project has been in the works for six years because our CEO is an Olympic gold medalist in perfectionism. We feel extremely confident that this project will go smoothly and we will be able to deliver a gorgeous, functional, and high-quality palette to our backers in a reasonable time frame. We are also realistic humans that have lived lives and understand that sometimes stuff happens. Aside from Acts of God/The Universe, potential risks and challenges include ensuring that the quality of the actual production run matches that of the impeccable quality seen in the samples made so far and our incredibly high standards, and that our timeline isn't affected by needing to address hiccups in shipping or logistics. What we can say for sure, is that if unexpected events occur, we will handle them with transparency, integrity, and open communication with our main peeps—our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
