Hello again everyone! Excited for spring break?! I hope you all have some fun things planned, because I sure don’t haha! Anyway, I thought I would review this Coastal Scents matte palette that I am obsessed with using right now.
It’s called a 42 Double Stack palette because it has two palettes stacked on top of eachother. 32 eyeshadows and 10 blushes. It was $24 on the coastal scents website when I bought it, but coastal scents have frequent sales on their website.
I wanted this palette in the first place because I found it to be a great dupe for the Sugar Pill palettes (burning heart, sweetheart, heart breaker).
First off, this is supposed to be a matte palette. However…I can see about 4 shades with a tad bit of shimmer in them. But honestly, it is not enough to even notice on the lid. Only 3 blushes are matte (last two on bottom row, and 3rd on top row).
Some shades are smoother than others. A lot feel a little dry, which is bound to happen when you have matte shades. I noticed that the bottom row has the most pigmented shadows, and the top row is the least pigmented. The white and pinks are the least pigmented, and require a lot of packing on to get any color payoff…even with a white base and primer.
Here are the swatches of each row, and the last picture is the swatches for the blushes. They are hard to see, especially the first two, but they are very blendable and smooth 🙂
Here are the 10 blushes. The first two on the top are very hard to see.
Great color selection
Compact case that holds a lot of product
Good color payoff for a palette of this price
Some colors are less pigmented than others
The palette has a little bit of a chemical smell
The brushes it comes with are crappy
No mirror on the inside
Thank you for reading :). Check out my video below of a review and demo of me creating a look with this palette ❤
