Coastal Scents so kindly let me pick out a few items to share with you and it was perfect timing for the current Holiday sale season. Until tomorrow, 12/3, the online beauty retailer is offering 75% off site wide, making their products beyond a steal.
I do have a few cool beauty products from Coastal Scents to share with you, but wanted to start with their single eyeshadows that fit into magnetic palettes. The regular price is $3 per shadow, which is fantastic. With the sale they’re $0.75 per shadow! They have several options for empty magnetic palettes, the one I chose is a 12-pan that’s $1.50 and worth snapping up alone!
Going back into the Painted Ladies time machine, you can see that I’ve featured Coastal Scents Hot Pots before (see my post from 2013 here) and at the time my thoughts on these single shadows was pretty mediocre. I wasn’t overly impressed but I also wasn’t overly disgusted.
With 6 years between my initial review and now, I can say that my opinion pretty much stays the same. The mattes are a bit tricky and not as blendable or buildable as I’d like. The shimmers are pretty darned nice and comparable to higher end brands.
My Final Thoughts: Coastal Scents Hot Pots offer a budget friendly way to try out a variety of eyeshadow colors – just stick with the shimmers.
Rating: A- (I’ve upgraded the rating)
