Coastal Scents Revealed Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Coastal Scents Revealed Eyeshadow Palette2

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.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I bought a couple coastal scents 88 palettes during a big holiday sale. I have yet to try them. because they are so pretty, i dont want to mess them up and also because the choices are overwhelming, maybe i will give them a shot tonight…

  • meganlisa

    I’m so glad you did this review. I’ve only gotten a few things from Coastal Scents but have been blown away by the quality. And I’ve recently both tried drug store makeup and sworn off it forever.
    I like this company…glad to see I’m not alone (and you know the subject better than I do!).

    I’ve had this for a few months and I love it. The colors are a bit richer than in these photos but it could be my phone. Buy this and get their smokey eyes brush set. You’ll do a happy dance when get them!!!

    I got this palette on sale during Black Friday, and I love this palette. Even though I have all 3 Naked palettes now, I will def be traveling with this bad boy in the future!

  • lyn

    I was looking a their website about 3 weeks ago and really wanted to get this palette. I’m glad you reviewed it because it seems like a really fantastic and wallet-friendly purchase 🙂

  • Christina D.

    This looks lovely! But now for the $100,000 question — where is it made?

  • Christina D.

    I figured as much…so many colors for that cheap is usually an indicator. But my wallet thanks you since I will not be purchasing this afterall.

    I bought this on sale when it came out and this was the bargain of the year for me. I’m very pleased with the shades and the quality. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of palettes coming out lately. After ooming and aahing over them all, I ended up only buying 2 palettes last year: this one and Lorac/Unzipped (love this one too!).

  • Pam

    From your photos, this palette doesn’t look as warm as it’s UD counterparts. What do you think?

  • Em

    So…Is it better than the Naked palettes? I’ve seen so many dupes at cheaper prices, like this, and have no idea what to think! Should I get the Naked 2, The Nudes, or this? AAH
