Coastal Scents Hot Pot Eyeshadows

I was on a hunt for some nice colorful eyeshadows that are not super expensive. And then I came across Coastal Scents Hot Pot eyeshadows. I couldn’t believe that they are sometimes on sale for only 0.99 $!! So I definitely needed to try them!

Product information:

  • The eyeshadows retail for 1.95$ (coastalscents.com) but often they have a sale where they retail for 0.99$.
  • Eyeshadow pan weight: 1.5/ 0.05 oz
  • So you pay about 1.3$ per gram/39$ per ounce (When on sale: 0.66$ per gram/19.8 per ounce)

Swatches:

Formula:

The eyeshadows are very nice. Most of them have amazing pigmentation and some you have to build up to get good pigmentation. The majority of them are very creamy but some are more on the dry side. That means that the formula of the eyeshadows is not consistent. They are really easy to work with though. They are not that powdery and don’t have a lot of fall out.

Pros:

  • Good pigmentation (most of them)
  • Easy to work with
  • Not a lot of fall out

Cons:

  • Inconsistent formula (some eyeshadows are really nice and some are just okay). Some of them are not that well pigmented

Final thoughts:

I really love these eyeshadows. But you have to keep in mind that some of the eyeshadows are not the best quality. But most of them are amazing!! And they have such an amazing range of shades! They really have every shade you can think of. And so so so affordable! I definitely recommend these eyeshadows.

I will definitely get some more at some stage!

THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH for swatching these the way you did!! Unlike ALL THE OTHER pictures I have seen of CS hot pots swatches (while trying to pick out colors to buy), yours show the colors up close, in different lightning situations but most importantly, CLOSE ENOUGH and LONG ENOUGH SWATCHES so it isn’t just a dab of color. With yours we can CLEARLY see the shade and tint (undertones) of the colors and because of the size of the areas you have used to swatch, we can get a feel for the consistency of the shadows as well! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!! You just sold several shadows for CS for them! I wish EVERYONE did swatches like you! I hope to see more of the hundreds of CS shadow swatches if you have them!!

Thank you SO much love! You are so sweet!
I’m glad that my swatches are helpful. I always try my best to make the swatches look the way the colors look in real life.
Thank you for your support! xo
