How I store my Pigments and Depotting

I prefer pigments in jars.
 I almost always depot my baggie pigments into jars.
Searching for clear container in right size can be quite a pain. 
However Born Pretty has different sizes, types for less than 12-6$ and free shipping.
I usually go for set of 12 individual containers or 25 container (5 stuck together).

 I usually use the 5-stack containers for mixing up lip colors with Sleek Pout Paints.
Or for similar color family pigments- in this case for lighter shades from Darling Girl.
These jars can easily fit sample baggies, mini jars or even full size eyeshadows.
It comes in a convenient box with departments which can be taken out for more space.
I usually store in the box my already ''jared'' pigments for better overview.

 The 12 containers is just right up my alley - shades can be separated.
Size is a bit smaller- can held pigments out of sample or mini jar (up to half of spoon).
The box that comes with it is a bit insecure for travelling though.

There's something about depotting- It's a real treat to depot an eyeshadow and get a better look at it.
Also it's much easier and cleaner to use it straight out of a jar than a baggie.

I cut off a small bit of baggie and shake the pigment out in a jar.
Then I took a toothpick and scrape everything that's left in the baggie through the opening side.
Can get a bit messy but less than through the opening side.
In this case I used Luxe from Darling Girl.

You can tell there's a lot of product for a sample bag.
You can easily get more than 12 uses out of it.
Frankly I doubt I would use the shade as often if I left it in the bag.

I also take off the sticker and place it wherever I can.

You can get 25 containers for about 12$ HERE.
The individual 12 jars are 6$ HERE.
I highly recommend these jars if you're looking for anything similar.
You can store nail accessorises, pigments, depotted lippies, blushes, samples, foundations.
I might take a stack of foundations with me when I go travelling.
