Review of Coastal Scents 88 Metal Mania Palette by taralynn36
I finally got mine in the other day I should mentioned that I ordered mine from eBay instead of Coastal Scents. The shipping does take awhile (a couple of weeks) but I got this and the Warm 88 palette for $25 total. So basically 2 for 1, although this particular seller is no longer selling as it seems. Mine were extremely well packaged and nothing was broken. The only difference I can see is that there is no writing on the case. I read reviews about how small these palettes were so when I got mine, I was impressed that they were bigger than I thought.
I'm totally in love with both of my palettes. The color range is gorgeous and there are very few shades I won't use. Some have a lot of shimmer (but no glitter) but some are more satin. I did try some of the brighter pink/coral shades as blush and it does work if you like shimmery blush and don't want to waste the colors. It definitely has more usuable colors than some of the other Coastal Scents palettes like the Shimmer or Matte.
The shades seem really buttery to me, a lot like the NYX singles. I used mine on top of TFSI primer and the lasting power seems very good. Much better than my NYX Runway palette which only lasted me 1/2 day. The best part is, I won't be buying any eyeshadow for probably years! I'm totally hooked.
EDIT: I know longer have this as I swapped it when I bought the Naked palette. But I do prefer this over the warm palette if I had to buy again.
