1st Coastal Scents Purchase!

I’ve had the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette for approximately 2 months and I just can’t get enough. I’m reaching for it more and more. I’m into the pinky-purplely shades that really bring out my green eyes. This palette is perfect for that. It also offers some basic fundamental shades, such as the neutral creamy shades and black, and some fun and interesting shades like the bright cranberry color. This was my first purchase from Coastal Scents and I was a little skeptical. I won’t lie, I was really excited to get this in the mail. Maybe my heart new it was going to be love at first sight? Ha! But anyway…

This palette is $19.95 on the website, but when it goes on sale you can purchase it for around $10. I don’t know when the sales happen, you just have to keep checking back. I am so surprised by the quality of these shadows because they’re so affordable. The shimmery ones are super buttery. I’ve had very little fall out upon application. I did apply the shadows one day without a primer and they did crease, but I am not all-together surprised by that. I’ve noticed that you need an eye shadow primer for pretty much ALL eye shadows. I have heard that this palette is very similar to the Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay, but I don’t know. I do not own that palette as of yet.

It is easy to see that the color choices are great. You get: mattes, neutral pinks/roses and browns, shimmer colors (that gold color in the inner corners of the eyes!), copper colors, and unexpected bright colors like a few of the pinks, and the cranberry color I mentioned earlier. There are 20 colors in this palette. They are fool proof because they mix perfectly together; they blend so smoothly and simply. It has simple cardboard packaging. There is no mirror in this palette which may bother some, but I’m cool with it.
