Somewhere around Christmas i placed quite a sizable Coastal Scents order during one of their 50% off sales. They have these quite often so if they're a brand on your radar I'd wait for one of these events to snag a great deal! As I'm pretty sure you all already know Coastal Scents is one of those brands that sell a bunch of large eyeshadow, blush concealer palettes including the now infamous 88 palettes. They also sell a large range of other products including brushes, single "hot pot" eyeshadows (cheeky review of those coming in the near future), primer glitter etc. etc. I've previously reviewed their Revealed Palette, their Naked 1 and 2 dupes here.
There are currently two 10 pan blush palettes and today I'll be reviewing the original 10 Blush Palette. It hosts a wide range of shades from pinks, peaches, berries and more natural tones making it extremely versatile and would be the perfect pick for makeup artists in training, girls just starting out in makeup or just your typical beauty lover as it has a $17.99 regular price tag, but remember what i told you all about those sales!
It has an array of finishes from matte, satin to a couple of shimmer based shades which I've really enjoyed for layering. I had this little gem in my daily makeup stash for a good 3-4 weeks without needing to reach for anything else! They are all well pigment, just slightly on the drier side which makes them a little more difficult to blend. Most of the shades will need to be used with a light hand on fairer skin tones as it is very easy to go overboard then takes a little work to blend. Some of the shades are a tad stiffer in the pan then others but performance wise they are pretty consistent across the board.
Overall i think some of the textures can be a bit more effort to work with but for the price this a lovely palette and something I'm glad to have in my collection. The packaging is quite large so probably not the best option for travel but if you're looking to add a range of shades to your makeup stash, this really isn't a bad choice!
Just a heads up! Do remember in the UK you will most likely get customs charged for any purchase over the value of £15 coming from outside the EU, plus a pesky Royal Mail/Fed Ex fee. I know customs are a bit hit or miss on what they pick up but i got stung with my Coastal Scents order so thought it only right to let you all know.
You can find the 10 Blush Palette here.
