Coastal Who??

Hey guys!

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook (which you should be lol) then you would know that Coastal Scents recently had all of their Hot Pots on sale for only 99 cents! Being the makeup lover I am I could not pass this deal up. Initially when I saw the eye shadows I thought they were super pretty and  very pigmented. Once I did some swatches I found the matte shadows were a bit chalky which I’m not a big fan of, however the shimmery shadows are my absolute favs! Especially Dark Golden Olive (the green looking one.) It works amazing with my skin tone and I get compliments about how pretty my eyes look whenever I use this shadow. I honestly don’t know why I bought the really bright colors since I’m more of a neutral kinda girl… I guess something just came over me.

    Great review! This colors look amazing in the pan, it’s such a shame they are chalky. You’re right about the olive color! Stunning shade. 🙂

      Thank you! 🙂 I had high hopes for the yellow one especially.. On the bright side they weren’t expensive so I’m not too disappointed

      Ahh that sucks! Maybe they will have another one soon! This is actually my first time using coastal scents eye shadows and they’re not so bad

        I think it’s just perfect for experimenting like bh cosmetics. I mean you get what you pay for but perfect for figuring out which colors you like so you can splurge on them later.

          Totally agree! I think eventually I want to try out the 88 neutral palette. Do you have it? and if so do you recommend it? Speaking of splurging I’m saving up now so I can walk in Sephora and just go crazy and buy everything. Ok maybe not everything lol just some things I’ve had my eye on for awhile

            Nope I don’t have that one, but I have the 88 original and the 88 shimmer. Get the neutral and let me know if I should get it lol
