I dunno how they do it but at one point the Coastal Scents Revealed Eyeshadow Palette was practically being given away for free. 50% off knocked this palette down to a mere ten bucks!
The Coastal Scents Revealed Palette is actually the best beauty budget pick up for those really strapped for cash because it combines the greatness of Urban Decay Naked 1 and Naked 2 into one great palette. It’s packed with 20 natural eyeshadows shades in a range of matte, metallic, frost, shimmer, and satin finish shades that range in color from the most basic of beige to the most rocking of taupes. If you can’t create a fabulous nude look with this incredible palette you’re doing something wrong.
And even today, at its regular price of $19.99 it still packs awesome into a fabulously low cost.
This one you NEED.
Housed in a slim line case without a mirror the Coastal Scents Revealed Eyeshadow Palette is a friendly to store, easy to travel with palette that’s packed with twenty eyeshadow choices. I didn’t compare any of the colors to my Urban Decay Naked 1 or Naked 2 Palettes but at a glance you can easily pick quite a few shades here that are easily duped in both palettes so it is kinda like having a combination of Naked 1 and Naked 2 in one spot.
A majority of the shades are beautifully textured with a super velvety, buttery consistency that blends easily onto lids with great pigmentation. I was duly impressed with the texture on these eyeshadows as they wear well without creasing or fading and have absolutely no chunky fall out of huge chunks of glitter or shimmer. The mattes are a touch dry and not as silky as I would like but still very workable with a little TLC. I didn’t like the frosts at all but that’s just a preference as I’m not keen on a frosty finish. On the upside I’m thankful there aren’t many frosts to contend with here anyway.
The palette packs just about everything you could want or need in a natural palette. There’s matte beiges shades to highlight with, there’s metallic bronzes and browns, and tons of taupes, even black for a more smoky eye look as well as barks, golden browns, and coppers. It pretty much covers a wide range of colors in a small space. This is one of those palettes you can easily travel with and not carry your entire makeup collection with you because you feel you left something behind! There’s twenty shades of eyeshadow here that you’ll likely make use of across the board, daily especially if you’re a girl or guy who loves browns, naturals, bronzes, etc….!
Obviously as per my discussion above the formula is beautiful for a palette for this price point! I wouldn’t say it is spot on to Urban Decay’s formula, Urban Decay does have a creamier more intensely pigmented eyeshadow, but there’s not a lot to complain about here either and the shadow formula is on par with single shadows you’d get from NYX Cosmetics, Stila, or even MAC.
Overall, the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette packs a punch into my beauty budget world! This is a must have palette for anyone who loves natural shades with a formula that rocks.
Well done Coastal Scents!
I look forward to seeing more eyeshadow palettes like this one.
