This past December, Coastal Scents had a sale on all their Hot Pots (http://www.coastalscents.com/makeup/eyes-200/hot-pots.html). These Hot Pots are single eyeshadows in 26mm pans and are sold individually. They are $1.99 each (regular price), but I got them for $1.19 each on sale, which is a great deal! They also sell empty palettes to put these in (http://www.coastalscents.com/makeup/palettes/custom-palettes.html).

Here’s a close look at the packaging. The eyeshadow fits in snugly and the package closes securely.

I got a mixture of shimmer and matte eyeshadows so I could get an idea of what the quality is like of each. I’ve grouped them into trios and one duo at the end.

Deep Cider (matte base + glitter), Boca Mocha (shimmer) and Deep Roast (matte)

Coconut Husk (matte), Chai Spice (shimmer) and Caramelized (shimmer)

Kodiak, Golden Avocado, Goldmine (all shimmer)

Deep Eggplant (matte base + glitter), Edgy Eggplant (matte) and Gunpowder (shimmer)

Gypsy Night (shimmer) and Olivewood (matte)

Swatch time!

Overall, the shimmery eyeshadows are great! You can see from the swatches that a primer doesn’t help make them more intense, but a primer will certainly prolong its wear. As for the matte ones, a primer is definitely need to make them show up better.

I’ve worn these a few times and they haven’t let me down! 

Quality-wise, I give the shimmery eyeshadows a 4/5 and the matte ones a 3.5/5. They all have a bit of fallout and the matte ones need to be built up a bit to get even coverage.

As for Coastal Scents’ shipping and packaging, I’ll let my kitten “The Grim” give his opinion!
