Don’t think the buck stops here at neutrals. If metallics get your heart racing, opt for Coastal Scents’ Metal Mania Palette Set.

Inspired by the sandy dunes and vibrant skies of the Sahara Desert, there’s a hue to match every color on your mood ring (and then some). Even Lawrence of Arabia would be impressed.

Colors are wonderful, but Pigment is not great at all
Purchased

I bought this palette never having tried coastal scents eye shadows, I was very excited to try them. I am quite disappointed in the quality. The pigment is not very good in most of the colors. But the colors are all so beautiful, I wish they were better. It helps if you apply them directly with your finger and rub it on. And if you use a shadow primer first, but I would not ever buy coastal scents again, they are just not nearly as good as others I've tried. But the brushes are nice. I quite like them. I'll stick to my usual , too faced and Urban decay are truly worth the money. This is no better than the really cheap shadows by Elf brand found at Target.

Love the variety!
Purchased

These shadows are great, pack a solid punch of color, and seem to have pretty good staying power. I LOVE the brushes that came with the set, and am excited to experiment with the many shades of color (though I love that none of them are over the top... colorful, but still staying in the neutral family). The one drawback is that each color only has a little bit. I imagine that my favorites are going to go pretty quickly, so that's a shame. But luckily a little goes a long way!

Also, on a semi-related note, my product arrived damaged, with some of the colors broken. I emailed Birchbox about trying to return/get an undamaged product, and within hours they had responded and are sending me a brand new product to replace the damaged one... and I don't even have to return the original! Now that is AMAZING customer service... I LOVE BIRCHBOX!

Great buy!!

I am reviewing this over a year after I bought this, and I still have over 3/4 of the pallet left!! It is a wonderful product with a huge variety of bright strong colors as well as numerous neutrals with a subtle punch. A must buy at a great price!!

Smoky Eye Success
Sampled

Loved this little sample palette. The colors were very complimentary. I actually loved the size (even though it was a sample) because it was great smoky eye on the go.

All the colors of the rainbow
Purchased

This palette as it all. There isn't a color that you could want. Pair it will a nyx milk pencil for extra depth of color and you are all set.

Too many colors
Sampled

I know it may sound odd but I wish it had less colors. I loved one of the colors that came in my sample but I don't need any others, I just want that one color!

Color Fun
Purchased

If you need a neutral palette but also like playing with color, this is for you. I learned I liked Coastal Scents after receiving a sample of the Revealed palettes. For the most part all of the colors are pigmented. I have darker skin and noticed that going without a shadow primer can be troublesome for some of the lighter shades. You'll need to spend more time layering the lighter shades on darker skin, or use a primer. The palette travels well in carry-ons or checked bags. If you only use the mirrors that come with palettes to apply your makeup, then you may consider not using this one, as the palette is difficult to hold while applying makeup due to its size. I have no complaints about the palette. I have more expensive brands but use this one daily because it's versatile.

Love some of the colors
Purchased

I have found that I have favorite colors in this palette. Then they are empty and I don't really use all the other ones. I wish I could get smaller palettes of maybe 6 or 9 colors. But I really like the shadow. Oh and get their makeup brushes! They are the bomb!
