This should be called the 88 Neutral but that is probably not helpful to those looking at reviews b4 buying. What I can tell you is every brown, beige, & cream shade on the spectrum is represented here. The pans are the size of dimes basically & when people are speaking of "fall out" they are strictly referring to the excess dust the shadow may create under ur eye/face not the pans (pans not "pots") depotting themselves spontaneously or somehow becoming detached from the palette itself. :) I reach for my BH Cosmetics palettes just as much as CS & indeed they are very similar in quality. My first "real" palette was the CS 88 Shimmer. I had a bunch of quads & a compact that had different cartridges but as for real, live big eyeshadow palettes it was Coastal Scents. I replaced it w the BH 88 Shimmer when I got keratitis of the eye but u can't go wrong w this palette. If 88 colors seem intimidating try watching some you tubers wearing it. I haven't hit pan on it yet & I've owned it for approx a cpl years. It was pretty intense & terrifying opening these palettes & having 88 colors like now wth am I going to do but I try not to wear more than 3 colors at once. Just find urself the perfect nude lip that lends itself to your new palette & ur all set!

100% live by this palette. Some of the colours aren't very dense so you need to build them up a little, but this is probably the best £20 I've ever bought. I use it near-enough everyday and there is hardly a dent in the shadows. I'd use a little primer though as mine tended to crease and move slightly. It's definitely worth the money though!

The colour selection in this palette is absolutely phenominal! There is a huge variety of shades, as well as several matte and shimmery shadows. The colours are almost all universally flattering, and they blend very well. Though I found the colour payoff in these shadows isn't the greatest, and they feel the slightest bit chalky. Wetting your eye-shadow brush seems to work well and helps to solve that problem. The pallette normally runs for around $20, which in my opinion, is a bit too expensive. But thankfully, the manufacturer's website is frequently running sales through the year, so it isn't hard to find the pallette for $10-15, sometimes even less.

I got this palette for $8 and just couldn't pass that offer. There are many whites and peaches. Some of the colors are very similar. They're okay pigmentation. The matte colors sucked, they were very chalky and streaky. However, the shimmer shadows were GORGEOUS! They were very pigmented and could compare to higher end shadows. The product is actually a lot smaller than you would think. About the size of an iPad and the shadows are the size of a dime. Overall, $8 was a score. But I wouldn't pay the regular price for this. You probably won't use all the colors either.

Holy Pigmentation, Batman! The shadows are richly pigmented and I love this palette. I have seen that some of the palettes in other reviews are not very pigmented. I am not sure if they have changed the formula with mine. I recently took this on a trip and loved it. I didn't have any eyeliner, but used the black shadow wet and was able to line my eyes. There are enough colors to do a lot of different looks. I would buy this again, if I ever run out of multiple colors as long as they do not change the formula or price.

Woooow, I have to use a super light hand with this. I didn't expect it to be so pigmented so when I used it for the first time, I got way more colour than I wanted. I don't think I need to buy any more eyeshadow (but knowing me, I will) since this will last forever. My ONLY gripe is that it's kind of powdery when you dip your brush in but I guess that's the trade-off for having super soft shadows.I'm going to purchase other palettes, I hope they're as good as this one!

So I have to admit I reach for this palette the most out of ALLLLL my eye shadows... I own MAC, UD, Too Faced, Lorac and a lot more but this one is by far my favorite. The colors are universal for day and night and all skin tones I feel. I broke mine in a frenzy to get ready for work on day so I need to reorder it!! But I got it for less than 10 dollars and I just can't quivel the quality.Very buttery in my opinion, but a little too soft they kinda appear chalky... its strange.I highly recommend anyway!

I got this on sale for 8.00 and the texture of the eyeshadow is very chalky.

I love this palette! The pigmentation is amazing for the price. With an eyeshadow primer and cream eyeshadow, they have great staying power as well. They go on soft. There is such an amazing variety from browbone highlights to crease colors. The palette has a lot of shimmers but there are still plenty of mattes. The only thing I have against this palette is the packaging. It is hideous and not very sturdy. Overall, the palette is so worth it especially if you are on a budget, are new to make-up, or just want to add some nice neutral eyeshadows to your collection. There are so many possible day and night looks but I must say it is my go-to daytime palette.

I have to admit I haven't really touched this palette in a long time, because I got quite a few new make up products that I love since then.Anyway, the last two days, I decided to pull out all my poor neglected make up sets to give them a go. And, dare I say it, I realise I actually prefer this to my urban decay naked palette. Weirdly, this palette still works well on me even after having it for 2 years, the colour payoff and everything is still there. They go on perfectly for me and I don't get fall out of any kind. Whereas my naked palette has totally died on me. All the shadows are really hard now and pretty much can't be used at all. I can't even get the tinest bit of colour out of them despite pressing my brush down hard and swiping a few times.Back to coastal scents shadows for me I guess. :)
