Review: Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette


Actually I have a lot of neutral eyeshadows for my everyday natural makeup look,
uhm because I did not want to waste my money on colorful eyeshadows that I would rarely wear. But yeah I admit that sometimes I need those vibrant colorful eyeshadows for bolder eye-makeup in the festive season, and I think I could not improve my makeup skill if I only play around with those neutral eyeshadows lol. So, I bought this palette on last Black Friday sale kkk~



As you can see I bought mine in the Original one.. and this palette is very affordable, since it has 88 different shades of matte and shimmery eyeshadows~


About the packaging.. it comes in a card box, and the palette itself is made from sturdy plastic, it is not too large, so you can can carry it anywhere you want, but I am not really interested to carry the palette around because it would be a hassle la! And as you can see.. the matte black case makes my fingerprints look so pronounced ughh!


And it also comes with a mini mirror and 2 double-sided sponge applicators inside, which are useless for me lol I did not touch the applicators at all until now.


As you can see this palette has a wide variety of colors, so I could do an experiment and play around with them.. of course I would remove my eye-makeup immediately after I took some pictures, because I always think that I look weird with bold eye-makeup lol


So, here are the swatches of the eyeshadows~ I swatched them by row from the lightest to darkest on my inner arm, and please don't blame my camera because some of the colors did not show up very well ugh! (Ctrl + click to zoom the picture below)


It is very easy to blend, but unfortunately some of the swatches are quite similiar and not really pigmented, I also noticed that most of them are chalky and easy to fall out.
So all you need is a good eyeshadow primer to make it lasts all day long!


Overall.. this palette is not really bad la, since the price is super duper cheap and you will get 88 eyeshadows. So I recommend this palette, especially for beginners who want to learn makeup in a fun way or perhaps just to play around lol



Thank you for reading and have a lovely day, girls ^^

See ya~

  2. yeah, I found the shades to be very hit or miss! I just ended up giving it to one of the girls I watch and let her use it for play makeup! I kinda wish I still had it because, like you said, it's nice to have the color variety!

  10. thanks for sharing Lala!

    I agree with you, many of the colors are chalky and tend to have a lot of fallout, especially the matte colors. But i think the shimmer colors are not that bad, i enjoy using them.
