Coastal Scents Interchangeable Magnetic Palette Review :)

Hello my gorgeous beauties :)  I hope you are all well :) 
Todays review is on something I have been searching for for a while now :) 
I have been looking for an empty palette that will fit most single eyeshadows from different brands :) 
You may remember me reviewing Makeup Geeks eyeshadows not too long ago in two separate posts and I have been storing them in my UNII Palettes which holds only 8 of those shadows :)  I didnt like the fact that they were separate (a little bit of OCD in me) and wanted to buy a palette that I can have them all together in.  
I also plan on buying more Makeup Geek eyeshadows which means an even bigger palette to have them together.  
I have to admit having my UNII Palettes here is great as I love how sturdy they are and how amazing they look but to be honest buying a few of them to store my single eyeshadows will cost me alot of money which I have been trying not to buy because I am saving for my new bundle of joy.  The UNII Palette are worth every cent but to buy a few at a time would really be hard on my funds.  The UNII palettes cost $29.00 each and only hold 8 eyeshadows 
I also opted to buy a Z-Palette which to my surprise was a little steep for price too.  The z-palettes come in different sizes and to buy the large one holds 20 eyeshadows and cost €25.00 to buy now I know that seems very little which I am sure it is but when you need a few of them it all adds up. 
Thats when I did a little research and found this Interchangeable Palette on the Coastal Scents website :)  I was a little nervous about buying them as I thought maybe they wouldnt work but I took my chances and bought two of them :) :) 

Each Interchangeable eyeshadow palette Costs only $9.99 each :)  A Big difference compared to the other palettes I mentions But the big Question is did it work do they hold my Makeup Geek eyeshadows ???
There are different sizes of empty palettes to choose from
  1. Quad aka 4 piece is only $3.95
  2. The 12 piece is $5.95 which also comes with a clear lid for the same price
  3. The 28 piece (which is the one I got) is $9.99 and also comes with a clear lid 
  4. Last the single which is called Go Pro is $1.95 

I wanted to get the one with the clear lid but they were sold out at the time.  The clear lid would be very ideal especially if you have alot of single eyeshadows from different brands you can tell them apart by simply looking through the clear lid but hey maybe the next time I purchase they will be available :) 
The palette itself is a very simple plain black matte palette with Coastal Scents written on the lid :)  The Palette is very lightweight even with shadows insides :)  Its also very flat which is handy for travelling :)  Inside you will see 24 empty slots in the shape of eyeshadows with an addition tiny space to slip your baby finger or the end of a brush in to take the shadows out.   What I love about this palette is that its matte which means it will not stain easily :)  
On the inside lid there is no mirror which I prefer as I want to put the names of my eyeshadows there in the order they are in the palette :)  
I was so so excited to see if my shadows would fit in this palette and was wondering how they are going to stay in there 
So I placed my first Makeup Geek eyeshadow in the first slot praying it would work :)  
And did it???? 
YESSSS!!!!! The perfect fit I mean perfect and stays put even when I turn the palette upside down :) :)  Happy Dance !!!!!!! 
Take a look :) 

All my Makeup Geek eyeshadows are finally together :)  And I have plenty of room for more :) :) 
My other palette is for my Coastal Scents eyeshadows in which I purchased more of the same day I will give you a sneak peak.  

Thats all you get for now :)  Dont worry I will be reviewing these eyeshadows soon ;) 
Overall I am so happy with these palettes the fact that they are Magnetic means any single eyeshadows that measure up at 26mm's.  The only snag about these is that Mac eyeshadows will not work in these palettes not due to size but due to the magnet's polarity.  
I am definately going to purchase a few more of these to have as I plan on buying all of Makeup Geek Eyeshadows and more single eyeshadows from other companies :)  The price is amazing for these and shipping is not overly expensive too and no I never get charged customs even if I make a big order :) :) 

So happy :) :) :) 
Have you tried these palettes yet?  
Let me know your thoughts :) 
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
