A little while back I got a Makeup Forever Magnetic Palette. It held a lot of my mac shadows but not all of them. I was ok with that, but the Mac shadows didn't stick to it too well. Most of them would pop up.
I quickly realized my MUFE shadows stuck better but not at all to a Mac palette.
So my conclusion....opposite magnitivity.
I made this video that explains it a bit better.
On further realization I learned magnets stick to tins (or metal) and tins (or metal) stick to magnets. That meaning that tins without magnets on the back (empty tins, mufe, mark, or anything else depotted) will stick to a magnet (any magnet) and those with a magnet will stick to tin (think pencil tin or altoids).
Let me explain better.
A mac palette has a tin strip on it, and the shadows have magnets so they stick well together. A MUFE shadow has tin and the palette has a magnet so it works well together. In fact a mufe and mac will stick together.
