Being the make-up snob that I am, I have always been a bit hesitant purchasing cosmetics that aren’t within the realm of cosmetic giants. M.A.C., Urban Decay, Benefit are just a few of my go to brands. Even drug store brands that have improved on their formulas make it into my arsenal after thorough investigation.
With all that being said let me introduce you to my first Coastal Scents purchase… The Revealed Pallete!
Oh my heavens! Let me just say I am amazed. I ordered this little beauty on the coastal scents website for $19.95. After shipping and all that it was about $24 bucks. Yes, the obvious is that it wants to be the Naked Palettes. However, if you don’t want to spend 50 something bucks on a palette this is a really sweet alternative. It’s housed in a slim but sturdy cardboard pallete that flips open to reveal 20 neutral eyeshadows.
The consistency of the shadows were nice, very soft and buttery. So much so that all I really needed to do was tap my brush into a shade to pull a decent amount of product. The pigmentation was really nice on all the colors. I had no complaints. I swatched all 20 colors… The first color located top left is going to make an excellent brow highlighter color for me; it matches my skin tone so nicely you can’t even tell I swatched it.
The Rant- I have no complaints. Maybe the softness of these shadows, but really that’s just me looking for something to complain about.
The Rave- For 20 neutral shadows that work on a variety of skin tones you can’t go wrong. Great formula. Great price. 20 freaking shadows in one palette!
The Review- I bought it. I tried it. I really really like it.
