COASTAL SCENTS: HOT POTS (SWATCHES & REVIEW)

COASTAL SCENTS AND MORE 109

Hi beauties!

I’m here with an exciting post that I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. I started using Coastal Scents “Hot Pots” for about over a year now and have absolutely fallen in love with them. I recently placed another order for a few more shades because they were having one of their many 50% off sales for $0.99 cents EACH. They originally retail for $1.99 and you can purchase them through their website. Honestly for the price you are truly getting a steal. Don’t get me wrong, some of the shades are a hit or miss but for the most part I have been really happy with them! (ps. I bought ALL of them myself – I am not sponsored nor paid to say this… I always give you my 100% honest opinion).

They have over 300 shades if I am not mistaken and they come in all colors and finishes. You truly have every option you would ever want/need.

Being a neutral obsessed kinda gal, my collection is filled with a bunch of neutrals (as you can see). I did however throw in a few brights and colors that are quite out of my comfort zone but I figured for the price and quality they are always good to have in my collection! (Especially for freelancing).

I store all of them in the 2 Z Palettes that I have especially for my Coastal Scents Hot Pots. (You can buy the Z Palette’s off of Amazon)

Okay Okay, now for the good part. SWATCHES! These are all done WITHOUT any primer. I have labelled the names of each shade on the swatches. ❤

    1. A lot of them are really bad pigment wise. I have owned a few of these and I have no idea how she made them look so good swatched. They are also very dry and chalky.

      1. If she is getting them to look nice, then it obviously can be done. Try using a good primer, a white or pale base layer, using good brushes, & building the color up.

  1. Thanks for the swatches. I always get so overwhelmed shopping the sale and didn’t end up ordering, so swatches help 🙂

  2. I wish you wouldn’t have enhanced the colors in the pictures. your post would have been much more helpful if you would shown the colors as they really look. I am currently researching to make up my mind about some colors but I know I can not do so by the swatches you show. It looks really pretty but is not really helpful. By no means I am criticizing your work, this is just my thought 🙂

    1. I have all but 29 of their shades and I just figured out (sadly too late for me) how one could conceivably get every single shade they have for under $140. For me, since I don’t really go for the crazy colors (blues/greens/wild purples/yellows, etc), I could get everything but ones I wouldn’t want anyway for $100. Get the 252 palette and the 4 palettes that have removable pots and are colors from the line (Winterberry, Think Pink, Fall Festival & Creative palettes). Then, there are only 87 colors remaining in the whole line. I recently got the 4 palettes for 9.07 ea and the 252 for 17.47 and bought a bunch of hot pots in their .99 sale. I could get you a list of all the colors not covered in those palettes if you like so you know which you’d need to buy. The 252 is great to figure out what colors you like then go buy the full size pot of that color. You’d still have some fun crazy colors to play with that are in the palettes and then only have to buy the staples you love. They have 372 colors so if you could get every one of them for $140, ya can’t beat that. And it would be a ton less obviously if you bought the palettes then just the specific colors you wanted as it’s only $53.75 for all the palettes when on sale and that’s 300 colors right there – although some of the 12 shadow palettes do have duplicates and some will be duplicated in the 252, but there’s only 9 in total that you would have two of so it’s .18 per color for 291 colors! I’m going to use the 4 interchangeable palettes to create a specific palette for my fav looks like a cool one, neutral one, warm one, and maybe a smoky one so I can just grab that one palette and have everything I need in it. Hope this helps you decide. Their shadows are great. I’m going to an event and was trying to decide what colors to take and I have about 60 Mac and I decided to leave the Mac and take CS ones because there are so many dupes and the Mac ones just don’t stay well in a palette. Their Magnets suck. CS ones stick super well and so many of them I just can’t tell the difference in color or wear.
