My sister is subscribed to Boxy Charm and gifted me a palette she had received. It's Coastal Scents's Revealed Smoky Palette. I use to own one of their large 88 shadow palettes. I think we all did at one point. Have the shadows changed since then?
Let's find out!
This palette retails for $29.95, but I see it's currently on sale for $19.95. It contains twenty eye shadows that are matte, metallic, and shimmer finishes. You get a nice variety in there. It is far better quality than the 88 shadow palette I use to own.
I did experience some fallout with some of the shadows. Shadows I experienced fallout with were #5, #6, #11, and #12. I really wish they had named the shades.
I think this palette is perfect for beginners, or if you want to create a easy smokey eye. They do apply smoothly and were easy to blend. They lasted about 5-6 hours. They lasted just as long as my high end shadows do.
The matte shades were decent, but could've been a tad more pigmented. I had high hopes for #19, but not the best matte blue. The pigmented shadows were mostly the metallic and shimmer shades.
The packaging is slim and great for travel. I enjoy the smoke design on the front of the palette.
The palette is just an okay palette for me. I didn't enjoy the fallout. Shadow wear and pigmentation on some were nice though. I think $20 is a good price point for this. I would not pay $30 for this.
Enjoy the weekend!
