On my recent online shopping expedition I purchased this beautiful lip palette from Coastal Scents. I am usually weary of lip products that are not in the traditional lipstick or gloss packaging due to convenience but I decided to try something different and the colors in this palette intrigued me.
Here is a photo of all 66 shades
There are a lot colors in this palette and the assortment ranges from burgundy, red, gold, pink, purple, coral orange and even blue. Of course I am not going to get much use out of the blue shades or wear them on a daily basis but for Halloween they may come in handy.
At a closer glance you can tell just how creamy these colors are.
Texture & Finishes
This palette has a mixture of gloss and creamier matte finishes. Some shades have a touch of glitter while others are glitter free. Certain colors appear sheer while others are vibrant and opaque. Although some of these colors show up quite well on the lips other colors that look bright in the palette may show up more transparent and glossy. You really don't know how much color you will get until you try each one but for the most part the color pay-off is quite good. Most of the shades are creamy in texture and they spread and apply quite easy with a brush.
If you are planning to use this palette without a lip brush then application with your finger is difficult because the circles are not very large. These colors are very creamy and soft so if you push down too hard with a brush or your finger they can dent easily. The lasting power on these are average. The shades I have tried thus far have not made my lips feel dry. This is a great palette for people of all skin tones because of the large variety.
There were way too many colors to swatch then all but here are a few swatches below.
Mix & Match!
This palette is great for mixing colors and creating your own custom shades! You can also use the shimmery shades like gold to add a touch of highlight to the center of your lip which creates a pretty effect.
This is also a handy palette to have if you want to experiment with color and learn which ones compliment your skin tone and which hues you prefer. Makeup artists may also find this palette handy because of the variety of shades.
I am currently using this brush with the palette
This brush is an ideal size because it fits into the circles quite nicely
The downside of this palette is that it isn't great for use on the go and touch-ups because of the size but that’s what you get when purchasing a large lip palette.
I also think having 5 blue shades is a bit too much, I could have handled 1 or even 2 but I am not that wild when it comes to lip colors. I would have preferred more opaque purple tones.
You also need a lip brush to apply these colors and the palette did not come with one which would have been handy to include.
This palette is beautiful and it is a wonderful addition to your makeup collection. If you love lip products then you will love this!
