UPDATE (June 17, 2021): Unfortunately, the Coastal Scents brand has gone out of business.
UPDATE (JUNE 17, 2021): Right now, the only affordable, build your own palette, single eyeshadows that I have personal experience with are Makeup Geek ($6.49 – $8.49). You can check out my review and swatches of their most recent formula by clicking here. Syndey Grace is another brand with single eyeshadows ($5.00 – $6.00) and they get rave reviews, although I’ve never personally tried them. I do not currently know of any single eyeshadows that are priced as low as Coastal Scents was priced.
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.
If you are interested in knowing my thoughts on the formula, you can find that information at the bottom after all of the swatches.
On to the swatchfest!
