These days there’s only 3 companies I bother buying eye shadows from. Ignoring the fact that I already have way too many and absolutely don’t need any more, the main thing I look for when I inevitably do buy more eyeshadows, whether individual pans or palettes, is good quality for a budget price, which immediately narrows the field right down.
Several years ago I discovered Coastal Scents and their Hot Pots, individual budget-friendly eyeshadow pans that can be slotted into magnetized palettes, and I’ve returned to them again and again. As such I was excited to get the chance to try even more of those Hot Pots and to also test out one of their ready made palettes for the first time, the Revealed Matte palette. The result? Coastal Scents is still part of my favourite 3!
