e.l.f. Mini Makeup Collection/de-potting disaster

So I mentioned a while back that I attempted to de-pot some eyeshadows and it did not go well. I was trying to get the eyeshadows out of my e.l.f. mini makeup collection because I love them but I never use them because having them in with the lip colors is too messy. So I thought I would take them out and do the whole empty CD case thing. ...but they didn't come out very well and the cheapie little pans were all bent which of course made the shadows crack and break a little. So I thought I would try to make them into loose shadows and store them in like a pill organizer or something.

But then one day I came home from work and saw this on my vanity....

My kitten got into the shadows and broke them all up and made such a mess of them that it's just not worth it to me to even try to save the shadows and since I got it free I'm not that heartbroken over the whole thing. At least I wasn't until I started taking pictures for this post and realized how much I love these colors!! This comes with 1 creme eyeshadow shade, 9 powder eyeshadow shades, 1 blush, 1 bronzer, 1 brow powder, 10 lipgloss shades, 1 eyeliner pencil, 1 face brush, 1 lip brush, and 1 dual ended eyeshadow applicator. Oh and 1 giant mirror!

So this is what mine looks like now

This is what it looked like when I first got it
These are the shadows...

Cream Shadow

Blush and Bronzer (Which I am pretty sure is their oh so popular Nars Orgasm dupe)

Brow Powder

And finally the lip colors

 My favorites
Now why am I showing you all the lovely shades from my broken makeup palette?? Because until 10/25/2010 when you spend $10.00 on you can get this makeup collection for free when you use Code: MINI!! Which is how I got mine and fell in love with e.l.f.
I think that coupon code is great, and I totally recommend if you have never tried e.l.f. now is the time because this palette gives you a little bit of everything and I know you will love it!

Even though I'm really bummed about this being broken, I'm almost positive these eyeshadow shades come in singular form from their studio line. And maybe I will be able to save the lip glosses!!
