Brights Anyone??


Craving brights? These new 42 Color- Double Stack Eye Shaodow & Blush combo palettes available from CoastalScents.com are really, um, bright. Available in both Matte and Shimmer versions, there's something for everyone. These are some of the brightest pressed eye shadows I've seen. On the skin, most of the colors have the effect of a mineral eye shadow or loose pigment. Pretty impressive. Since there are so many colors in each, ranging from these bright primary shades to a few neutrals, I only swatched a few of the brighter colors. But as you can see from the pictures below, these palettes are not for the timid, they are VERY colorful!

42 Color - Double Stack Matte Shadow & Blush Palette
$28.95


42 Color - Double Stack
Shimmer Shadow & Blush Palette
$28.95


The palettes themselves are pretty small closed...


...but when you open it, the eye shadow tray comes out and stacks against the top revealing the blush underneath.

The blush colors are the same in both palettes

Overall, the payoff of the blush colors are pretty great too!



*Reviews of their other new palettes are coming soon*

  6. This a great, but maybe too much for me :) I'm more into neutral looks, or neutral shadows convined with bright ones, but this pallete doesn't have neutrals, so... not for me :)

    Do yo have the new lip palette? what do you think of it? I'm thinking on getting that one...

  10. Hi there, loveeee this! Looks great. But I'm wondering whether the blush palette is a replica of the normal blush palette they have without the eyeshadows....? Or are they entirely different colours?

  23. Hey Tiffany! These are beautiful thank you for sharing!

    I have a question for you. Would you please share your lighting set up for your videos? I need something that will be soft enough for makeup but bright enough for the camera to see when I cant use natural light! You would be like an ANGEL for sharing!! :) Thanks so much!!

  25. Do you prefer the matte or the shimmer version? Since they both come with exactly the same blushes, I don't want to get both, and I wonder which one is more worth it.
