(*)Information from Coastal Scents website

This palette can be purchased are www.CoastalScents.com and is priced at $19.99. Castal Scent often host amazing sales, as much as half off or free shipping.

SHIPPING:
When I received it through USPS [other shipping options available] I received it in a large pink envelope with bubble wrap surrounding the inside to protect the product. My full detailed receipt, a pamphlet on project Coastal Scents is working on and a small sample quad of the first Revealed palette which contains a $5 off promo code if I wished to purchase the original Revealed palette. And of course the Full size Revealed 2 palette. The palette came in a box the and was incased in bubble wrap as well for extra protection. I ordered the palette Thursday 9pm and received it Monday morning. 

PACKAGING & DESIGN:
The palette is like a thick cardboard packaging that feels light but of good quality, and close magnetically. [similar to the Lorac Pro palette]
It's is a light brown color with Pink and white lettering that is quite beautiful. The inside is also decorated with designs and the name of the palette as well. each eyeshadow does not have a name or number description. 

SIZE:
The palette is about the same size and slim as the Lorac Pro palette just a couple of centimeters wider. The size of the pans are the same size as the Urban Decay Naked palette pans.


COLOR SELECTION:
The palette contains all warmer toned shades and has a mix of light and smokey shadows. Mostly golden, pinks and purple shades.

TEXTURE:
The palette contains seven matte eyeshadows, which glide on smoothly, opaque, and easy to blend. Not chalky at all!

One eyeshadow that seems to have a matte finish with chunky glitters in it but is quite nice and gives the palette an extra something special to it.

There are Twelve shimmer shadows that are extremely opaque, glide on very smoothly and blend like a dream!
[All except for one!]

The forth eye shadow from the top row is the only eye shadow that did not apply smoothly and had a horrible texture to it, when applied it just flaked off in thick chunks and when blended it came of completely. {The texture to me felt like baby rice flakes.}

SWATCHES:

IN CLOSING
The colors in this palette are all beautiful, opaque, easy to work with, the palette is travel friendly and can easily take you from a day look to a night look. Gold's and Purples are universal colors than look great on any skin tone. The colors are very similar to the colors in the Urban Decay Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes but not exact dupes. However this palette would be a great and more affordable alternative to the more expensive UD Naked palettes. The Reveal 2 Palette Eyeshadows also do not apply nearly as buttery in texture as the UD Naked Eyeshadows.

RATING:

  • I would rate this palette 4 out of 5 stars ★★★★☆
  • I didn't give it a perfect rating because one eyeshadow was a disappointment.
  • I would recommend this palette to a friend.
  • It is a very affordable palette.


EXTRA TIP: To make the eyeshadows look even more opaque and last longer, apply an eyeshadow primer or a similar cream based eyeshadow on your eyelids before applying your eyeshadow.

All eye shadows were swatched without a primer underneath .
