I hope I’m not too late in reviewing this. It’s been awhile since I’ve been hearing fellow bloggers and Youtubers rave about this stunning palette by Coastal Scents ……Revealed Palette 3. When I had my eyes set on it the very first time, I wanted it so much , just like most of the other girls who immediately ordered theirs. But I didn’t and controlled myself as I already had an eyeshadow palette with 120 shades in it. This is the reason that always stopped me from buying more. This time, when got the chance, I just had to take it and swatch. Thanks to my friend who was very kind to let me swatch her newly ordered Revealed palette.
It came in a box exactly the same as the cover of the palette. I must admit, I like how “revealed3” is written on it. It is so different.
The palette is very slim, sleek and light-weighted. I’m sure my friend would love carrying it around whenever she travels. The lid is magnetic , hence no struggle of inserting your long nailed thumbs to unlock, just like other palettes.
I’m not one of those respected beauty bloggers who will typically swatch a product very nicely , applying them on skin with several coats till the color comes out very nicely that will look very impressive in photos. I promised my readers a different kind of review posts with utter honesty. So here, you find swatches of Coastal Scents Revealed palette applied directly on my skin with no primer or base of what so ever, using my fingers and that too swiped just ONCE. This is exactly how the colors will look when applying the first coat on skin, Not bad,eh? With primer or eye shadow base, I’m sure it will make a lot of difference and good news is, it is buildable. So apply till you get your desired shade.
The palette has a total of 20 colors consisting of matte and shimmer eyeshadows. The darker shades look fantastic , however I’m a bit disappointed with the lighter shades as I find them a bit repetitive and I wish it is pigmented enough to show up on eyelids with natural pigmentation like mine. I find their shimmers to be of poor pigmentation than I expected. But as I said it is buildable and with base ,will definitely rock your world.
By looking at it, it seemed very silky and soft ,but actually it is a bit chalky which is another drawback. Some fall outs here and there you’d see so be prepared for that.
Picture speaks for itself so I guess not much to say here. Staying power on the eyelids with eye shadow base is very good though.
The palette is worth the money spent as it is very affordable ,offering you 20 shades. Since most of you must be owning eyeshadow base, hence no issues at all regarding pigmentation and staying power. Many compared the shades with Urban Decay Naked Palette, I’d say please don’t go for this statement. I’m not a big fan of Urban Decay but still I’d say, no comparison between the two palettes.
Do you own any of the CS Revealed Palettes? If so,which one? How did you find it?
