Hey everyone! About a month ago I won PasionStarButterfly's Coastal Scents Smokey Palette giveaway, so I thought it was about time to get some use out of it, swatch it, and review it for you guys!
Honestly, I didn't expect to enjoy this palette as much as I do because it's relatively affordable ($19.95), so I was weary about the quality of the shadows. The good news is that I am very pleased! As usually is the case, the shimmery shadows are quite a bit more pigmented than the matte ones, but that was to be expected. The matte shades are a little chalky for my liking, but hey.
The packaging does feel a little cheap and I found the palette hard to open at first, but in the end it doesn't really matter. Most of the colors work great and are very smooth, so I would definitely recommend purchasing this palette because it's so versatile.
Alright, on with the swatches!
I also thought you guys should know which ones out of the whole palette are my four favorites, so I did proper swatches of those. I think these colors are the most pigmented and velvety which is why I picked them!
I hope you enjoyed this post! This is my first time swatching and reviewing so if you have any tips for me, please let me know in the comments. Also, tomorrow I will be posting an EOTD featuring some of these shades, so look out for that! :)
