10/17/2010It's been well over a year and I haven't made a dent in this palette except for the upper right hand blush which I broke and haven't gotten around to repressing yet. But then again I hardly wear blush. I guess that's why I love this palette, I don't wear blush enough to justify spending a ton of money on it so this palette is the right price range and enough variety for me. Every time I get tempted to buy some expensive Nars Blush I think about this palette sitting around at home and I immediately refrain because I remember how scarcely I use blush and how much of it I have at home. Some of the blushes are powdery/chalky, mainly the brighter pinks. The lasting power on these aren't amazing either but like I said, I hardly wear blush and it's not a big part of my look so it doesn't bother me. Yay for not having to buy blush for the next 10 years.________________________________________________________________5/4/2009People that are in the MAC 30's seem to not like this palette too much, this surprises me because I felt that the range of colors offered something to almost all skintones. (rose, magenta, orange corals, mauve, pink, browns) I'm BE Golden Medium / light medium with yellow olive undertones and I really like this palette, I don't regularly purchase blush so I thought this would be a nice beginner palette to figure out which colors suit me. I find most of the colors very wearable and all of them very pretty, there are very natural and very dramatic colors. The matte ones are quite powdery and the color payoff varies with the color, they are also very buildable. I wouldn't buy this again because I don't think I'll ever use all of this up, it's a great value.The packaging is kinda weak, the CS logo is tacky and cheap looking (I'm going to put stickers all over it to cover this), the pans don't pop out, the plastic insert that holds the pans are a cheap flimsy plastic, and it'd be nice if it contained a mirror..

I haven't worn it long enough (throughout a whole day) but this is my review for my initial thoughts, swatches, etc. SKIN COLOR: NC 25, uneven/redOk wow there are so many pretty pretty colors. I'm sure this doesn't match up to MAC but for the price holy crap .. it's a steal for sure. When I first opened it, my eyes went straight to the hot pink color..swiped it and my eyes popped out .. this this is super pigmented. After, I put it on my cheeks and wow I looked like a doll... it would be great to put on for some type of occasion or for a show...other than that I will def not be using that color on a regular basis. I love that I can mix to get that perfect color. My 2 fav so far are the ones in the very end .. the peach sparkle/coral shimmer. I mixed both and it gave me an awesome finish. Don't use too much product b/c it'll be overboard on the blush. I'll be giving an update so far so good :)

this is by far my favorite purchase from coastal scents! just for reference i am an NW20 skin tone and i can wear every shade that comes in the palette. the colors are very pigmented and not chalky at all. i am a fanatic about blush and i own alot but i always seem to reach for this palette and i can even use a couple different shades at a time. i highly suggest purchasing this one if you are gonna buy anything at all from coastal scents! this is a steal!

Looks nice when first applied but then fades. It's nice having all those colors but not worth it if it doesn't stay. Still going to keep it for photo shoots but not to use on myself.

I think that this palette is just okay. thats it. The pigmentation was not as good as what i had expected from all the hype. I dont own any MAC or NARS blushes to compare, but compared to my clinique ones, i like those better. They were fairly powdery and chalky, and dont show up much on my NC30 skin... ><;; its a pain in the ass whenever i get anything onto it, because it wont come off. like the powder will just stay on it..And also, now Coastal Scents has the name of the palette and the company name on the cover....yeah.. dont like that either... i covered up with random drawings i did.. =)I wont rebuy this. i doubt i'll run out, especially since i wont use 7 of the blushes anyways.. but, imo.. if you have a pinker undertone, and lighter skin color than me (light caucasian skin for example/not meant to be racist) then more colors will probably work on you than they would on me. =) continued >>

This is a great palette for anyone who doesn't have a lot of blushes, and would like to experiment with different shades. That's what I use it for. In terms of quality as an everyday blush, although it is pretty pigmented, I find that the texture is too chalky/powdery, and the staying power is lacking. But for the price of less than one MAC or NARS blush, you get a range of shades/warmeth, so not bad for experimentation, so that you know what shades to get from the pricier brands.BTW, I got mine from ebay from this seller called "jolieee" or something. It is the exact same palette that Coastal Scents sells but way cheaper (just under 20 dollars including shipping) , but I wouldn't recommend this particular seller. The shipping took over 30 days (yes, it really did), and the seller never responded to my inquiries in the mean time.

I (NW 20) love this palette!There are three colors in it I am definitely not going to use because they don't suit me at all, but all the rest of them are perfect!I like the fact that the colors are not overly pigmented, although I can imagine that people with darker complexions might have problems with this. I like to build color step by step. The case is better than the case of 88 shadow palette. After I purchased it from CS, I realized that I could get it much cheaper, that's practically the only thing regarding this palette that I don't like.

I don't get all the excitement Coastal Scents gets for their palettes. I found this blush one to be poorly pigmented, very messy and powdery, and only 1 or 2 useable pans on my NC30-35 skin. The others don't even show up on my face! Bah! A lot of hype for very little results. I can't imagine buying this again unless all the colors are changed drastically (you know, like ones that actually HAVE pigment in them).

I simply adore this palette. I like using light and bright colors as opposed to using bronzers or deeper colors, and this suits me just right. I had monthes long reservations on whether to get this, because on my monitor the colors looked so dull and muted. I was completely wrong. This is actually comprised of really bright colors, somewhat too bright or light for ladies darker than NC35. The texture is silky and smooth, and blends like a dream. It is not as pigmented as MAC or NAR blushes, but somehow I like the less-pigmented texture better because I can always build up more to get color and dimension. This somehow "magically" controls the intensity; no matter how hard I pile this on, it "automatically" mutes itself down and stays that way all day. No fading with minimal oxidation (which every blush cannot avoid). Overall this is very useable and practical, compared to the awesome price, ($17 for 10 colors!) and tons of different looks can be created with this one. I love this.

This palette may not be a good buy for someone with a dark skin tone like mine. Out of the 10 colors I can only use one as a blush. There is a bronze color that I can use as a bronzer but everything else is useless to me. The colors are not very pigmented so using them as a eyeshadow is not an option. I really wanted to love this product but it just didn't work out for me.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
