When I really embraced the glamour girl that I am, I couldn’t afford $50 eyeshadow palettes but I still wanted really nice makeup. I saw all the YouTube girls raving about Coastal Scents ‘Hot Pots’ or pressed shadow pots, and creating custom palettes so I had to get mine. Honestly, for people who are just getting into building a makeup collection or simply want some nice eyeshadows to choose from, these are an A1 option.
The hot pots retail for $1.99 but they have sales frequently where you can purchase them for $0.99! They also have empty palettes you can fill up. My first purchase was 12 eyeshadows and the 12 pan eyeshadow palette (which has a huge mirror by the way) to accommodate them.
Looking at my palette I’m sure you can see which shadows I get into the most but I love them all equally! This is my go-to everyday palette and the first pick when I’m traveling. I chose the colors specifically to be able to do natural looks, smoke it out, or add pops of color when I’m feeling a little sassy.
They’re easy to apply and I’ve actually purchased. I’ve never had an issue getting quality color pay off or crazy creasing with these eyeshadows.
Here’s a closer look at my shadows:
If you asked me to pick one eye shadow that you need from Coastal Scents, I’d say it’s Oktoberfest. It’s the perfect transition shade on deep skin tones and a great shade to warm up an eye look on lighter tones as well.
