I finally got REVEALED!!!!!
I am so happy that I finally got my hands on this new palette from Coastal Scents and I must say I am impressed. I did not buy a lot of makeup in 2013 especially eyeshadows. I did indulge on blushes (updated collection to come soon). This 20 shadow palette retails for $19.95 but can be had for less during one of CS regular sales. The shadows are very soft and blendable. The palette itself is thin, sleek, lightweight, made of sturdy paper (very environmentally friendly), has a magnetic closure which makes it great for travel.
Top row # 1-5: has three matte and two shimmer/satin shadows
Top Row #6-10; one matte and four shimmer/satins
Bottom Row: #1-5: all shimmer/satins
Bottom Row #6 – 10: 4 shimmer/satins and one matte (this black at the end is one of the softest most pigmented I’ve seen in any palette to date.
Overall I would give this a 4.75/5 (I wish the palette had a mirror).
Feast your eyes on the latest palette in the world of neutrals. Coastal Scents has just released their version of I’m going to say it the ‘NAKED’ palettes. They present RELEAVED “Expose your natural beauty with this exquisite collection of nude and metallic hues. These smooth, powdered shadows blend seamlessly to create an array of day or evening looks. The slim palette holds all twenty shadows, allowing for easy on-the-go application.”
The offer more or less a mix of both N1 and N2 (20 shades) for only $19.95 (one fifth of the price). This is a steal given a naked palette is now $52. Therefore $19.95 compared to $104. I hope someone gets one soon so I can see some swatches and comparisons.

Now I know I don’t need anymore nudes or neutrals but everyday there is a new one tempting me, luring me to buy it. I’m pretty sure amongst the individual 221 pans here I can dupe the NAKED 2, all the Balm neutral palettes, the newest ones from Bobbi Brown, Lorac, Dior, Lancome, Guerlain and every other brand. God forbid a NAKED 3 should come out.
Would you agree? or do you think you could never have enough nudes?
