Compacted, Space Saver
I purchased 2 one for eyeshadow and one for blush. Not a professional makeup artist so I didn't need one for lipsticks. I prefer to carry a tube of lipstick vs a big palette. Plus it gets heavy once filled. Holds 30 eyeshadows or 12 blushes. Can hold more without inserts. Save $6 each eyeshadow or $5 each blush. Close tight enough where dust doesn't get inside. Traveled with and nothing broke. Clear lid in the middle is removable so you can access both sides at the same time. The outside is not see through so I had to label them to know what is what. But I love the fact that I didn't have to find space on my vanity to put 30 eyeshadows and 12 blushes just 2 compacted palettes.

Poor Design. It was better before.
I like the way this looks and it holds the refills in just fine, BUT it is incredibly hard to remove the refills or remove the inserts once you put them in. There used to be a small notch cut out which allowed to just pop them out., Now you have to strategically press down on the corners of the inserts and hope that it pops up enough to grab the edge. Meanwhile, I end up scratching my shadows and blushes with my nails (which aren't even very long), nearly ruining them and making a mess. It's just too difficult and frustrating. Please MAC, MAKE THE NOTCHED inserts and pans again.

Low magnet
Great pallete wish they did more with the design. The magnet isn't strong enough to hold the refill pans on their own so I recommend the two dollar inserts or buying magnetic tape to add to the pans.

Great Palette
I absolutely love this palette for my lipsticks! I got this palette plus the 24 well insert. This made my makeup kit more organized and look more professional! I've tried the Japonesque lip palette and I hated it because it was so flimsy and looked cheap and for the price of a whopping $28+shipping it should have been made sturdier! I found this palette highly recommended on youtube and decided to try it. This palette was only $8 + 2 of the 24 well insert for $2 piece making my total $12 +free shipping. I got 2 of these for the price of 1 Japonesque palette. The Wells were a thick plastic so you can melt your lipstick into the Wells unlike the Japonesque palette. Over all I highly recommend this palette. I do hope M.A.C comes out with a magnetic sheet for the palettes though. I would love to use these palettes for my eyeshadows but it's a pain to go out and cut magnetic sheets to size. That's why I only give this palette a 4 out of 5.

Love my Duo Palette
I love, love, love my palette. It is compact, but holds a lot. It is very convenient for travel, to carry in my work tote, or just to take in the bathroom each morning to do my face. It does smudge easily (fingerprints on the outside of the case).

Brush Holder
Until I get some magnetic rounds I will be keeping some brushes in here. It's solid and sleek! Will buy more!

I wanted to love this palette
It's as heavy as a brick. Period. This thing is so heavy, you won't even want to travel with it. I have the single one, and love it, but I'm not a fan of this one at all.

Not what I expected from MAC, very dissapointed
I bought a few duo palettes and large palettes as well to merge all my products into one area, I love Mac products however this is a huge disappointment- the main problem is the strength of the magnet or I should say lack of strength, yes my eyeshadows and such stick but with the duo as soon as it's flipped over and jiggled at all they shift and some even fall, i adhered stronger magnets but this too is a pain removing the Mac magnets buying new ones and then having to adhere them, it's not something I feel I should have to do. I ended up returning the pallets and going with a different brand that not only had stronger magnets but was much sturdier and only $3 more.... Even with the eye shadow inserts it still wasn't very dependable. An easy fix would be to increase the magnet strength... Huge disappointment

This is a very good product for the price. I like how it has the clear plastic in the center that holds each side. I went to Michaels (craft store) and bough some strong magnets and now I can put anything I want In it. I love it and I will recommend.

Not Good
The Z palettes are much better. This is two-sided, however when you're using one side and have other shadows on the other side, they tend to fall since they're essentially hanging upside down. Will not repurchase again.

Great palette, don't mind the bulky feel, but I wish the bottom was magnetic... Gave it 5 stars because it holds he MAC shadows perfectly, which is basically created for, but I wish I could use it for my other shadows it hour buying the extra magnets.. Love! Buy it!

Great!
Tags +Portable, Convenient, Multiple combinations, putting all your makeup in one palette
I've been using this for over a year now, and realized I have never written a review on it. It is magnetized, very light, not bulky at all, even though it is a little thicker than the old ones. If you depot products you'll need to get your own magnets on the back (you can find them in any craft store or section), and if you buy MAC's pro refill shadows/blush/etc, magnets are already on the back.
If you have the inserts in you can fit 30 eyeshadows in, and without them you can fit 48. I don't have inserts in mine, because I keep eyeshadow, and MAC's Sculpt and Emphasize powder in them. To get the inserts out, you just hold the sides and twist in opposite directions, and they will pop out.
This is a great way to keep things organized, in the same place, and also it's cheaper to buy certain products by buying the pro refill pans.

Great for Storage
Tags +Portable, Convenient, Multiple combinations, shadows, blushs
This product can be used with or with out the inserts. The inserts work well to keep the makeup organized and secure. I really love this for storage and traveling. It can be a little bulky and and heavy but it is worth for the price and the amount of product you can fit into it. If not buying the inserts make sure to buy magnetic stickers easily found at Michaels.

Just Okay
Tags +Portable, Convenient, Multiple combinations, lipsticks
I really expected more from this, especially being MAC, but it was really flimsy feeling and fragile. When I first was opening it, I thought I was going to break it. Now I'm afraid to drop it because it might break. I don't have any MAC eyeshadows, but I tried to put one of my pan eyeshadows into the palette and it doesn't seem to be magnetized.
I bought this with x24 well inserts however, so I put lipsticks in this. With the lipstick inserts, it feels a bit more sturdy and weighted.

Upgraded and happy
Tags +Convenient, Multiple combinations, Portable, organizing eyeshadows and blushes
Oh dear Lord, where do I begin? Let me just say that I am in love! I think that it looks sleek, sophisticated and a definite upgrade from the old palettes. The price is right and the inserts are sturdy. I have blushes on one side and eyeshadows on the other side. Only complaint is that sometimes the blushes do pop out, but I can remedy that easily with this price range.
