So I just had to take a picture to show the difference in palette sizing. To the left is the 2008 mac smokey eyeshadow palette and to the right is the 2009 mac smokey eyeshadow palette. See the difference! I mean I know that the 2009 packaging is more sturdy and it has a magnetic clasp but I would rather have the old okay packaging with more product. I mean I don't intend to play football with my eyeshadow palettes so I don't need a real sturdy palette. The brown side to these smokey eyeshadow palettes are pretty similar. I think I have every 'smokey' eyeshadow palette that Mac brought out. When I get home I'll take a picture of all of my holiday smokey eyeshadow palettes.
