Coastal Scents recently had a 99 cent sale on their single eyeshadows and I decided to place an order. If you’ve been into makeup for a while, you may remember when Coastal Scents’ eyeshadows were always 99 cents when they went on sale. At some point, the eyeshadows went up to $2.95 each. Now the popular 99 cent sale has become the 50% off sale with a cost of $1.50 each.
If you are looking at this picture and thinking that the yellow sticks out like a sore thumb, I agree with you. This was actually a mistake with my order. I ordered the shade Amber Bronze and somehow was sent Midas Gold in its place. No Worries, Coastal Scents has already shipped me the correct shade, but I decided to go ahead and swatch it with the rest in case anyone wants to see that shade.
I also just want to quickly add that even though there was a mistake with my order, that is not typical in my experience with the brand. I have been ordering with them since 2015 and this is the first time I’ve ever had an issue.
On to the swatchfest!
If you are looking for a deep dive into these eyeshadows I’d recommend checking out this post on my old website, Sensitive Beauty Blog. That post includes my review of the formulas and also links to older swatch posts. You can search the page for the colors you are interested in and if I swatched them, there will be a link to the corresponding blog post for that shade.
Again, Coastal Scents Hot Pots now retail for $2.95 per shade. If you sign up for the brand’s newsletter you’ll be notified when they have sales. For the Hot Pots, they typically have 50% off sales bringing the price down to $1.50.
