Coastal Scents is an online company that sells various types of makeup and beauty products. They have a endless variety of products, both finished products and the materials to make your own. Each product has every color imaginable, so there is something for everyone. This review will focus on one of their more popular products, the Coastal Scents 88 Eye Shadow Palette.
The 88 Eye Shadow Palette is a kit that contains, well, 88 different colors of eye shadow. They are highly pigmented colors, meaning that the colors are deep and won't fade easily during wear. This product is perfect for professional makeup artists, but it is also a great value for women who are just looking for a variety of colors that are also high quality. The eye shadows come in a sleek black case that measures 9 inches by 6.5 inches, which makes it easy to travel with.
Coastal Scents currently sells four kinds of the 88 eye shadow palette:
Â· 88 Color Makeup Palette â this is the palette that is perfect for everyday use. The colors are a mix of matte finishes and satin finishes. This palette does not provide a lot of shimmer, so the website suggests that a shimmer dust can be applied on top of the eye shadow, which is perfect for a night out. This is probably Coastal Scents best-selling eye shadow palette.
Â· 88 Warm Palette â this palette provides 88 different versions of neutral colors. You will find lots of browns, creams, earth tones, and smoky colors. Coastal Scents claims that this palette is toned to compliment virtually any skin color and all ages and backgrounds. This palette has a mixture of matte shades and shimmery/pearl shades, so there truly is something for everyone.
Â· 88 Metal Mania Palette â this palette is for the more adventurous makeup wearer, but with such great prices it is perfect for experimenting. Truly beautiful colors; peaches, pinks, earth tones and silvers and golds. Very shimmery and metallic finishes.
Â· Ultra Shimmer 88 Eye Shadow Palette â this is exactly the same as the regular 88 Piece Makeup Palette, but all colors are shimmery.
Although the eye shadows are richly colored, here are some handy tips for applying them (will work for any eye shadows):
Â· Use a slightly damp eye shadow brush when applying. This will develop an even richer color and will last longer on the eye.
Â· Invest in an eye primer. This product can be found at any drugstore or beauty counter, and just about every major brand makes one. Eye shadow primer goes on the eye before applying the shadow. It is a base that prevents creasing and gives more control when applying the shadow. Eye shadow primer also helps the color last longer.
Â· Before applying any eye shadow, dust the cheeks and under the eye area with an extra layer of powder. Sometimes when applying eye shadow it tends to fall on the face. This is called 'fallout'. The extra layer of powder catches the fallout and makes cleanup very easy without disturbing the rest of the makeup. Just dust it away with a powder brush when finished applying the eye shadow. One important feature to note about Coastal Scents eye shadow is that the fallout is very limited, so you don't have to worry about messing up your makeup. Lower quality eye shadows tend to fallout more.
