Today’s review is going to be on the Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette. I got this palette when there was a sale on the Coastal Scents website to test them out. I ordered a couple more palettes along with this one. I also got lots of individual brushes and a 22 piece brush set which I have already reviewed. Now let’s jump into the review of Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette to know how it fared out!

How Did Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette Work For Me?
The Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette comes in a sleek black packaging which while being not so attractive as other brands, is very sturdy and travel friendly. Under the lid, there is a mirror along with 2 small foam applicators which comes in handy for on the go touch up but personally I like to use my eyeshadow brushes instead. For a palette that costs around $10, the number of eye shadows is huge and compared to most of the other palettes in the market, the wide range of colors is amazing all the way from subtle black to in your face neon yellow. There are so many neutrals in the palette which can be used to create easy daily looks to smoky eyes. And it also has bright neons and other spring summer colors which are beautiful to play with for fun looks.

Now that all sounds amazing but the quality of the eye shadows is not consistent throughout the palette. Some of the shades are smooth and pigmented while some are chalky and lacks pigmentation. I experimented with some of the colors and and they seem to stay on 2 to 3 hours without primer and 5 to 6 hours with primer so I recommend using a eyeshadow primer like the Kryolan Eye Shadow Primer or the MAC Painterly Paint Pot when using this product. While it does not break me out or irritate the skin, I find that some of the shades are difficult to blend out and tend to go on patchy. So overall, the Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette is a decent palette especially if you are beginner and you want to experiment with different shades of eye shadows but it’s not something that is a definite must have in your collection.
