Coastal Scents 88 Eyeshadow Palette

I have had this Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette since last year and only hit on less than 10 colors. It's a good palette to have, but, I’m not really into eye makeup. I seldom put eye shadows, and i always opt for eye liners and mascara most of the times. Price:
This palette is only $20, or less- if you're lucky to avail it on sale.

88 eye shadow colors
mirror: 5" x 3.12" (12.7cm x 7.9cm)
comes with 2 dual end foam tip applicators

case when closed = 9.12" x 6.53" x 0.5" (23.2cm x 16.6cm x 1.3cm)
pot diameter = 0.62" (1.6cm)

Content Weight:
63.0g / 2.22oz

See that missing pot? I can't recall how I've lost that one. :(

Ingredients (from coastalscents.com):
Talc, Mica, Mineral Oil, Kaolin, Titanium Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Lanolin, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, BHT. May contain: Mica and Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Ultramarine Blue, Manganese Violet, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide, Chrome Oxide Greens, Chrome Hydroxide Green, FD&C Red No.40 Al Lake, FD&C Yellow No.5 Al Lake, FD&C Blue No.1 Al Lake.

The packaging is a matte black case, made of plastic. It’s sleek and sophisticated-looking than I expected. I find the mirror small and a little useless because the palette is hard to hold up and use due to its size. It also includes two dual sponge tip applicators, but I prefer using eye brushes instead.

The size of each eye shadow is about the size of a dime- plenty in my opinion, as I've never used up an entire shadow of any color or kind. True as described, the palette is nearly a 50/50 mix of matte and satin with slight shimmer. Most shades are very pigmented, especially the darker and brighter shades. They can be applied wet for a more dramatic look and to make it longer lasting. Some colors can be a little chalky but proper blending and use of a primer can help that.

I love Coastal Scents, I think its really worth the price - their make up are really pigmented compare to other palettes I've tried.
