So if you have ever watched make-up reviews/tutorials or even just browsed youtube, you may have heard of Coastal Scents 88 color eyeshadow palettes. No? Well, YOU MUST KNOW!
Coastal Scents makes this palette of 88 eyeshadow colors (among other things)..and let me tell you, its amazing! You can purchase matte or shimmer (I have matte), and they are under 20 dollars! Some colors in the matte are completely flat, and others have a more satiny, but not quite shimmery, appearance. It's love. Here's the picture from the website:

You are probably thinking what I first thought: my grandma gets me one of these every year for Christmas. Well, this is really good quality makeup, unlike the colorful baby powder eye shadows they sell at CVS during the winter. Each color is about the size of a dime, but they go a long way. They are reallllly highly pigmented and last all day. In my opinion a majority of the colors wear true to their appearance, but others are more or less vibrant when you wear them. They aren't messy either: they don't become powder-like when you take a brush to them, so you don't waste some product just by using it. This product is amazing, hands down. For the price, you cannot beat it!

Another note: I just dropped mine on the floor and none of the colors cracked or broke. AWESOME.

go to and snag one of your own!
