This compact palette and brush set from Coastal Scents contains no fewer than 88 unique eye shadow shades. Break out the color wheel, because you’ll feel the urge to experiment with some daring new combos. 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.
When I opened my birchbox to find these samples, I was saddened to find that the only color I would love to use was broken. Completely shattered and everywhere. It was a nice shimmering pink. I like using pink and browns because they go well with my eye color. Instead, I was left with greens. I'm not too big on green for my eye shadow but I thought I would give it a try...Not for me.
Green just doesn't look good on me. I prefer a natural look, so I just can't love this sample. I wish my sample wasn't broken so that I could try all the colors, but alas poor packaging and shipping causes me to lose out.
I don't usually wear much eye makeup, but am always looking for something different for the weekends. The colors I got in my box will be great for fall and was easy to apply.4
got neutural ivories/pinks and blues. will not ever use the blues. neutrals are fine but did not love enough to purchase.3
I love these eyeshadows. They are great quality. Very pigmented, but go on smooth and are easy to blend. They also have so many great colors... you can't go wrong with these!4
Great colors but sample was too small. The whole kit might be better--looks like a good variety of shades.2
I absolutly love these colors. I have fair skin and green eyes and i think all of the colors work well with me. I can not wait to purchase.5
The texture of the shadow is nice. It blends well, it stays on the lids well (with the help of a primer), and color payoff is great.3
It's hard to judge this set by the sample. I was sent a sample of four shades, including a periwinkle shadow and two bright pink shadows. I wouldn't wear any of these shades, especially not together. Perhaps, if they had sent more neutral colors, I might have been swayed towards a purchase.
The shadow itself goes on nicely, just really awful colors.
I received the smoky eye quad called starry night and thought the colors were pretty but the two grey shimmer colors arrived slightly smashed and just seemed to break up easily. THe colors went on nicely and blended well but just didnt seem to have the staying power like other brands I have tried. Considering the amount of shadows you get for the price its probably worth the buy if you like to experiment with your colors.3
I received a sample of The Perfect Smoky Eye in my August Box. Colors included Persian Pink, Baby Pink, Pink Silver and Icelandic. When my box arrived, 2 of the 4 colors were smashed and unusable. I was really disappointed in the color matching choices. Rather than an on-trend look, the colors together looked like something out of my 4 year old daughter's play-make-up collection.3
