I really wish there was a store here in Australia that sold coastal scents products! I love this palette most of the shadows and all of the blushes in this palette are super pigmented and last all on me all day. It does start to fade away a little bit at the end of the day but thatís after 8 hours of having it on. Packaging is super easy to store away as well. Once I hit pan regardless of the ship price would totally buy this product again.

I really like this palette! It has good pigmentation (most anyway) and i like that it has both matte and shimmer shadows. It also has the perfect dark browns for an eye contour, theyre soooo pigmented! And pretty much all the shadows and blushes look good on my skin tone, well except the light pink one lol its too light. The only con is that they are a little soft and do crumble easily but i dont mind being a little careful with it. But anyways i would recomend this if u dont wanna spend more than 20 bucks on 1 eyeshadow, i find that ridiculous! I got this palette for 11 bucks bucks on amazon and really happe with the purchase :)

i can't get over how amazing this palette is for the price. it's just unbelievable. the colours are gorgeous and very pigmented, the blushes are also very pigmented and can be used as shadow too. my only two cons are the packaging and the fact that there's no highlight colours. the reason i don't like the packaging is because it's REALLY hard to open! sometimes it takes me a whole minute just to get the stupid thing open! haha when i first got it i had to get another person to open it for me. and even they had a hard time! but other than those two things i LOVE it!

Coastal Scents is now my go-to for shadows and blushes. The 26 Shadow Blush Combo Palette is quite a bang for your buck.
I'm a sucker for neutrals, but I really have a soft spot for pinks and peaches. This palette features a lovely spectrum of browns, neutrals, gold tones, pinks, peaches, and plums in a wide variety of finishes. Quite often, I read reviews that complain of poor color payoff with CS shadows. This is undeniably not so, provided you use a base or primer first. They do, however, take some time to blend.
The blushes in this palette feel lovely on the skin. They're light as a feather, blend easily, and have great color payoff. Beware of the three darkest ones, however, if you are of a lighter skin tone. They can be quite overwhelming if you use just the tiniest bit too much. (Personally, I am not going anywhere NEAR that purple).
The only real gripe I have with this palette is the packaging. Yes, it gets the job done, but the plastic is very flimsy, bends easily (especially the top cover), and, I feel, would also crack very easily. I have read reviews claiming that CS palettes occasionally arrive broken in the mail with the shadows damaged, and now I do not wonder why.
On the whole, I am extremely pleased with this palette. The color selection is a dream, the shadows and blushes are of a good quality, and the price is a regular steal.

If you bought this on Coastal Scents, it might have been less worth your money, however I did buy this on ebay for $13.00 (including shipping) and thought it was a good bang for my buck.
Tying in the cost for quality, I would say that this palette was fantastic. The range of color here is limited to mid to deep tones of browns, peaches, and plums with shimmer, metallic and matte finishes. I do wish that there were some highlighting colors to make it an ultimate go to palette, but you will always need to bring one with you on the side.
Always use a primer with these as some of the colors will show up light and will wear off easily without one. With a primer, these colors are amazing! Super pigmented! Some, I would say, can rival MAC. I've been able to create day and evening looks with this palette. For the browns and peaches alone, I would repurchase this palette.
The blushes are okay, not my colors, but I can see them looking lovely on others. If you look at them enough, you'll notice that some of the blushes are bigger versions of the eyeshadows in the palette hehe. More eyeshadow for me!
Check it out on ebay. For such a low price, you really can't feel too guilty about buying it, even if it's only for a few colors.

TBH, i was expecting a little more from this palette. All the colors in this palette are brown and plums - just different undertones. Sadly, there isnt any lighter shade for highlighting *except that chalky blush and the bottom left* or even as an all over lid shade. But i love the dark brown shades - i mainly use them for eyelining so they seem perfect for that! The colors in this palette would probably suit night makeup more than day makeup.
They're pretty sheer without a base, but goes on well with a wet brush. Fair distribution of matte and shimmer colors AND really sturdy packaging! Ive accidentally dropped this a couple of times, but no cracks/shatters till date! I doubt I'd travel with this cos the palette, though sleek, is still pretty wide.
Wouldn't repurchase this as it will probably take awhile for me to use them!

this pallet sucks sorry for all the people that like this so much but I dont I have a few of the practical palletes 88matte 42 matte and 42 shimmer I also have 28 Neutral pallete wanted to add to my Neutral colors big mistake. the shadows are so soft they crumble if you look on them to hard( joking) however they are so soft that on a brush they look like your picking up powder on the brush in excess and when you apply to eye with primer and base(UDPP and Nyx JP in Milk) they color apply fine but the layers was just siting on eye and when i try to blend over eyelid the eyeshadow would blend like Oil and Water terrible. the blushes apply the same way waste of $20 oh well live and learn say your self time and money try another pallete for neutrals the 28 is nice maybe i will try the warm pallete and just use some of my other brands for neutrals.( I also purchased mine from Bh cosmetics dont know if that would affect any of the shadow deposit but the colors look pretty just does not work sorry)

When I purchased this pallett, I was extremely excited since it was my first pallett from Costal Scents. The colors were beautiful and are highly pigmented. Although it is somewhat towards the "neutral" pallett side, there isn't much of color variation. They are mostly dark colors and a lot of browns. I can't complain though because I mostly used neutral colors for my everyday look. I still love it =]

I bought this because everyone seemed to be raving about it...well it was a huge disappointment.
The shadows are super chalky (I have used 3 different eye primers) and there is a ton of fall out. The blushes are the same way. :/ I would suggest this palette to a newbie who doesn't have much experience but for anyone that has experience with MAC, MUFE, etc...this will be a disappointment.

I absolutely love this palette!
It surpassed all my expectations. The shadows and blushes are all highly pigmented and beautifully smooth. The range of colours is fantastic with pinks, golds, corals, purples, taupes and browns.
I'd definitely recommend purchasing this palette if you're looking to get a bunch of eyeshadows and blushes all at once. You can't go wrong for the price!

I purchased this palette because so many m/u junkies (like me :P) rave about how wonderful it is. Maybe I expected too much from CS, but I'm really disappointed. The "neutrals" are pretty much all brown, and the colors don't blend very well imo. The quality left much to be desired as well, but at least it's fun to try and use some of the different colors together.

This is a fairly nice combination blush and eyeshadow palette from Coastal Scents. It's more of a neutral, warm palette featuring shades of brown, gold, peach, plum, and taupe. Each eyeshadow is about the size of a quarter and the blushes are considerably larger. I think it is worth the money if you want to try out different neutral, warm shades but the shadows are a bit chalky, in my opinion, and not the easiest to blend. I do like the range of colors and must say the shadows are very pigmented. Some of the pink and peach eyeshadows can also double as a blush. All in all, beautiful eyeshadow colors at a relatively inexpensive price.

highly pigmented shadows comparable to MAC 1/2 the cost.

i got this palette along with 28 and 42 double stacks on other websites. the palette itself costs me about 6dollors and shipping was about 2 dollors but they were all mass manufactured in china so i am pretty sure the quality is the same. i am pleasantly surprised by the quality of these eyeshadows although i have to admit that 26 is way better than the 28 for several reasons.first, the 28 eyeshadows are chalky while the eyeshadows in the 26 palette are so much smoother.second, while you dont get good fresh tone or highlighter in the 26, you get various kinds of beautiful purples, corals, and golds which show up a lot lot better than those in 28. the third, half of the shades in the 28 are light which are designed to be highlighter or fresh-tones but they show up extremely similar, those looked so gorgeous in the pan dont appear the same on the eyes.while they still easy to use and nice, i am quite disappointed the vabriant identity does not show up. i am still happy with the 28, but i just love the 26 a lot lot more.
you actually get more use of the 26 palettes although it obviously contain less eyshadows. but as i mentioned, the shades are all very similar in the 28. however, i am not entirely sure about the blush. they have exceeded the pigmentation of a blush should have. in my opinion, the "blushes" you get in the palettes arent really meant to be blushes at all. they are the exact eyeshadows but bigger sizes. check the plum "blush" on the right and the plum purple eyeshadow above it, they are exactly the same, same pigmentaion, equally smooth and having the same shade. check out the coral "blush" right next to the plum on the right and the coral orange eyeshadow above it.again they are identical,except the amount of product you get.
i found them more suitable to be used as eyeshadow because they are honestly, insanely pigmented and if you use a blush brush to put that on, it will stay where your blush hits, say, usually the apple of your cheek and wont blend away or blend out. they are eyeshadow quality more than blush quality really, as mush as i believe that there is no rules in makeup and you can use everything in different ways, but tht is what i found.it is more suitable for detailed application such as being used on the eyelid and blended out with an eyeshadow blending blush.
just some additional info, i really like the blushes come with the 42 double stacks which brings you 32 eyeshadows and 10 blushes. the eyeshadows are smoother but they have the same finish which can be good for some people and bad for the others. the blushes there are really nice. they are indeed blushes.love it!
it i have to rate them, i say, i love the 42 the most(as it gives me more shades, better quality AND the amount of products too so it is the most cost-efficeint) then the second would be the 26(i love it i use it daily) then it will comes to 28 finally(i am still very thirlled about it, but i use it in conjunction with the 26)
packaging is beyond my expectation. they actually feels heavy on my hand and it feels nothing like the old88 palettes which just looks so cheap(they indeed are cheap...)the 88 were shinny and clumsy and tacky. i dont have them but my friends do so i have tried them in person, that is why i didnt purchase them!then i recieved the palettles, i could feel the weight and the quality.
hope it helps, happy shopping

It's not a bad palette but I hardly reach for it. I find that it's very sturdy and the eyeshadows aren't easy to crumble. I took it with me while I was traveling, no shattering or anything even though I'm very clumsy sometimes. I love the fact that it has beautiful purples and golds, but the other colors (like the browns) look really flat on me and hard to blend. I also wish it had a matte black and a nude/champange color for highlight, then it would be more complete. The blushes are chalky (esp. the lighter ones) so I rarely use them either.

overall, this palette has very very pretty colors and is great for fall when people are looking for warmer colors. while i do love many many of the colors, there are still some things that i'm not crazy about.
-the colors in the palette are so pretty! anything from golds, peaches, purples, and browns
-almost all the colors go with each other. you can make so many different looks with this one palette.
-the colors are wearable!! i love super crazy colors but it's hard to find a time and a place to wear them. you don't have to worry about that with this palette.
-there are shimmery colors as well as matte colors!
-NO HIGHLIGHT COLORS!! it's so frustrating when i get to use all the pretty colors in this palette to create a look but then have to dig around for a highlight color! depending on your skin tone you could use the lighest blush color as a highlight but for me it's too peachy pink for my skin and i have no options in this palette for a highlight color.
-no black/dark grey colors! there is a greyish color that's super shimmery but it's not all that dark and it would be nice if there was a matte black or super dark grey matte color to use for the crease. i'm just knit-picking though
- the "neutral" colors which are pretty much only brown, while they are very very very pretty! they are still all pretty dark for me to use as a lid color.
- one last knit pick! pretty much none of the blushes are good for my skintone but i like using them as eyshadows!

I bought this palette at a discounted price because it lacked the CS logo. I am so glad I did! I love almost every shadow in this palette, especially the browns and purple/red shades. However, I pretty much never use the blushes - the colors just don't suit my NC15 skin. Back to the eyeshadows - there is a nice balance between shimmer and matte shades, and the majority of the colors apply & blend well with a primer (there are a few duds, such as the light pink). Whenever I travel, I just take this palette instead of a bunch of separate eyeshadows because it contains all of the colors I would use + there are several colors that work for brows. For $20, this palette is definitely worth it - especially if you have green eyes.

While I find the colors to be really pretty, I hardly ever use this palette. I think I've used it three times since I bought it over a year ago. I never use any of the blushes, and I've only used a few of the eyeshadows. The blushes in particular are very chalky, and the entire palette has a strange, chemical smell. I don't dislike this palette, but I have other things that I'd rather use, that are better quality.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Cool Hair: Red, Wavy Eyes: Green
The matte Browns are hard to work with, but the rest of the colors are beauutiiiful, blend well and are very pigmented. This is my favorite palette ever, even better than myurban decay ones. And the price makes this product a steal. Peaches, pinks. golds and plums and browns are very in right now, excellent spring/summer/fall colors.

I know this is cheap but I am completely disappointed in the quality of the shadows. They do not blend well, and at my skill level I really need forgiving shadows. I rarely use this: one of the browns I use to fill in my brows, and I like the lightest blush. Other than that this thing just takes up space. I'm hoping I get more use out of this now that I have discovered Paula Dorf Transformer and can turn a lot of these into liners. The colors are great for my green eyes, but are a pain to use. I'm crossing my fingers for some great liners.
