I'm so excited! Last Thursday, I ordered the Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette off of Ebay for about $17, shipping included. I couldn't believe it when I received it in the mail today. So fast! :D I LOVE getting packages in, it's like Christmas! Anywho, I've been DYING to try the 88 Palette for ages now. I don't think Coastal Scents is the only company that distributes it. I believe it's a mass-produced product that companies can purchase and put their branding on. I think a company called BH sells something similar as well.
You all know that I'm a big fan of the ELF Studio Endless Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Palette, but I've heard rumors that the 88 Palette is more pigmented. Also it boasts a majority of matte colors, which is exactly what I'm looking for. As much as shimmer is pretty, it's not as photo-friendly as matte shades. Honestly, the only thing on my face that I prefer shimmery/shiny are my lips.
So it came in a very nice package:
As advertised, there are 88, dime-sized little pots of color in a combination of matte and satin-finish (slight shimmer) shades. There is an attached mirror and 2 sponge-tip applicators and the shadows come with a protective clear cover.
Ooooooooooh preeeeeeeeeeeetty! The yellows, turquoises, and pinks are calling out to me. I can't wait to play!
Oh, you can get them from Amazon as well for under $20, shipping included. Just click here: Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette.
