Coastal Scents Revealed Palette Review

Hello My beauties I hope you are all well 
Today I come to you with a review on the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette.  I am sure if you are a makeup junkie like myself you have heard about this palette as its a well known palette by alot of bloggers and makeup gurus on youtube :)  That is in fact where I have seen it alot.  I have heard some great reviews about this and just had to get it to try it out for myself.  

This palette comes in 2 versions, there is also a palette by Coastal Scents called Revealed 2 in which I couldnt help but get also and will review in a future post :) 
These palettes cost at the moment $19.99 for 20 eyeshadows.  Thats pretty impressive so far right?! 

The palette itself comes in a handy little box which looks exactly like the palette itself only it has a picture of the palette in the back of the box.  The palette itself is really slim and lightweight which is always handy for travelling or even handier for storing in your drawer.  The lid of the palette is held closed by a magnet I love that :) 

The most beautiful sight is about to happen when I open this stunning palette :) :) 

Doesnt it look stunning :) :)
As I mentioned before there is a total of 20 eyeshadows in this palette and as you can see they are all neutral shades :) :) 
There is a nice mixture of mattes and shimmers in there which is perfect for day time and night time looks :)  
There is only 4 matte shades but to be honest I am happy with the shade choices for the mattes and you will soon see why :) 

Starting with the top row :) 
Shade 1:  Is a pale matte yellow toned beige shade.  This is quite pigmented and and incredibly soft a perfect shade for blending or to use as a highlight :) 
Shade 2:  This is another perfect highlight shade only this has a shimmery finish.  The shade is veering towards a pale pinky champagne with tiny silver shimmer.  Again pigmented and a little goes a long way :) 
Shade 3:  This is one of my favourite shades in the palette.  A stunning rosey pinky shade with silver shimmer.  Oh my goodness this is super pigmented and really looks stunning all over the lid :)  I find this shade really brings the green out of my hazel eyes :) 
Shade 4:  This is another matte shade the perfect transition colour.  A light tan shade very pigmented and very soft.  
Shade 5:  Another Matte shade for us to play with.   This is a medium toned taupe shade.  This shade has a tint of purple in it.  I love to use this as a transition shade or even lightly in the crease for daytime looks :)  
Shade 6:  Another favourite of mine :) :)  A medium Bronzy brown with gold shimmer.  This shade is very pigmented and very easy to apply.  
Shade 7:  This is a medium matte brown the perfect crease/ blending/ brow shade.  This is very pigmented and again very soft 
Shade 8:  Another beautiful shade.  A shimmery gold and very pigmented :) 
Shade 9:  A Deep taupey brown with golden shimmer this is super pigmented and very soft and stunning shade to mix with shade 8 :) 
Shade 10:  This is a shimmery silver with a tint of taupe in there.  Its not your ordinary silver.  This again is very pigmented and soft :) 

Next up is row 2 :)  This row is more on the deeper and more pigmented side :) 
Shade 11:  A Deep Copper Brown wow is this shade full of pigmentation :)  A little goes a long way with the beauty I love it :) 
Shade 12:  This is a deep brown shade with the slightest shimmery finish.  This is more of a satin finish than shimmery.  If you look very closely you will see the slightest gold shimmer its beautiful 
Shade 13:  A deep taupey grey shade.  This too has the slightest amount of shimmer which gives a satin finish :)  Very pigmented 
Shade 14;  This shade is somewhat like Shade 12 only a shade darker the perfect crease and outer V shade for creating a daytime smokey eye look hugely pigmented 
Shade 15:  I am totally in love with this shade :)  A medium rose gold with a copper undertone to it :) again with the tiniest amount of golden shimmer.  Very pigmented and super soft so so easy to work with.  I have applied this shade on the lid with a damp brush and wow AMAZING!!!!! 
Shade 16:  This is a little like Shade 13 only more on the brown side :) :) Again very pigmented 
Shade 17:  is like shade 15 only more on the copper side :)  There is plenty of gold in this shade and super super pigmented.  When applied with a damp brush it gives a more foiled and pigmented finish.  This shade would be perfect for a christmas look :) :) 
Shade 18:  A Deep dark brown with a slight golden shimmer again another satin finish eye-shadow and again very pigmented :) 
Shade 19:  A Deep Silver perfect for those night time smoky eyed looks.  Very pigmented and super soft to work with 
Shade: 20:  A Deep matte black :) I love using this on the outer V I also use this as eye-liner during the day by simply dampening my eye-liner brush.  Its not the deepest black I have come across but its very very close.  Its also very easy to blend which is hard to find as matte eyeshadow especially dark shade can be hard to blend in a more affordable palettes :)  Its also very buildable :) 

I just have to highlight something before I continue.  I am absolutely amazed with how creamy these eyeshadows feel,  They almost remind me of how my Lorac Pro eyeshadows feel to touch and how they apply to the eyes :)  That says alot because of the price difference between the two.  
I also have to admit there is less fall out with this palette compared to my Lorac Pro Palette.  Thats not saying that you will not experience some fall out as I have noticed especially with the more darker shade you will experience some fall out.  The black especially !!! So I would advise you if you are creating the dark smokey eye maybe do your eye makeup before you apply your foundation :) 
With a primer (which I use 98% of the time) these shadows will last all day and even all night long.  I have worn these shadows with an eyeshadow base for the longest of 12 hours and I can safely say my eyeshadow looked exactly the same as when I first applied them that day :) 
I highly recommend this eyeshadow palette especially at the price it is :)  You could literally get away with only owning this palette and been able to create 10 + different looks :) 
Here is a daytime smokey eye look I created using the Shade 1 on the brow bone, A mixture of Shade 3 & Shade 6 on the lid, shade 11 on the outter corner blending inwards, Shade 4 for blending, Shade 7 in the crease and shade 14 in the outer V.   I also used Shade 20 as eye-liner :)  

As you can tell I adore this palette.  I highly recommend it to you all.  I know alot of you might ask me this question in the comments so I am going to cover it now and that is about shipping cost as Coastal Scents is an American Site and I can safely say on my last order which included this palette along with 2 other palettes and 4 makeup brushes the total shipping cost was only $20 and there was no custom charges :) 
I really hope you enjoyed this review :) 
Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Ohh what a gorgeous palette! It could be a great dupe for the Naked 1 & 1 palettes by Urban Decay. I have always wanted to order from Costal Scents but I have never taken the plunge.
