Coastal Scents 66 Lip Palette

On my recent online shopping expedition I purchased this beautiful lip palette from Coastal Scents. I am usually weary of lip products that are not in the traditional lipstick or gloss packaging due to convenience but I decided to try something different and the colors in this palette intrigued me.

Here is a photo of all 66 shades

Colors
There are a lot colors in this palette and the assortment ranges from burgundy, red, gold, pink, purple, coral orange and even blue. Of course I am not going to get much use out of the blue shades or wear them on a daily basis but for Halloween they may come in handy. 

At a closer glance you can tell just how creamy these colors are.


Texture & Finishes
This palette has a mixture of gloss and creamier matte finishes. Some shades have a touch of glitter while others are glitter free. Certain colors appear sheer while others are vibrant and opaque. Although some of these colors show up quite well on the lips other colors that look bright in the palette may show up more transparent and glossy. You really don't know how much color you will get until you try each one but for the most part the color pay-off is quite good. Most of the shades are creamy in texture and they spread and apply quite easy with a brush.

If you are planning to use this palette without a lip brush then application with your finger is difficult because the circles are not very large. These colors are very creamy and soft so if you push down too hard with a brush or your finger they can dent easily. The lasting power on these are average. The shades I have tried thus far have not made my lips feel dry. This is a great palette for people of all skin tones because of the large variety.

There were way too many colors to swatch then all but here are a few swatches below.

Mix & Match!
This palette is great for mixing colors and creating your own custom shades! You can also use the shimmery shades like gold to add a touch of highlight to the center of your lip which creates a pretty effect.

This is also a handy palette to have if you want to experiment with color and learn which ones compliment your skin tone and which hues you prefer. Makeup artists may also find this palette handy because of the variety of shades.

I am currently using this brush with the palette
This brush is an ideal size because it fits into the circles quite nicely 

Cons
The downside of this palette is that it isn't great for use on the go and touch-ups because of the size but that’s what you get when purchasing a large lip palette. 

I also think having 5 blue shades is a bit too much, I could have handled 1 or even 2 but I am not that wild when it comes to lip colors. I would have preferred more opaque purple tones.

You also need a lip brush to apply these colors and the palette did not come with one which would have been handy to include.

Overall Impression
This palette is beautiful and it is a wonderful addition to your makeup collection. If you love lip products then you will love this!
Cost 
I purchased this 66 lip palette on sale for just $9.00! It was originally $18.95. Right now it is on sale for $10 you can check it out by clicking HERE I am not sure when this sale expires.

  1. Wow, they are really pigmented, I have some in a big Sephora palette, but I haven't used them, I always forget about them and they are not so pigmented :/

  2. This palette is beautiful. BH Cosmetics has one that looks identical (I think they have the same supplier for a lot of things) and I was thinking about getting that one. I would probably even get some use out of the blue ones. :) Great review I will definitely be giving this palette a second look now.

  3. These colours look great! I was looking at the same palette by BH Cosmetics recently and wasn't sure if I wanted it. My main concern is still that it isn't portable. I really like the colours though and I would probably even get some use out of the blues!

  4. They certainly gave a nice variety with the finishes and the shades. I am glad you reviewed this because I am always curious about these thing but doubt that I would use it that often. Great review. Thanks so much for sharing (◕‿◕✿)

  5. Unfortunately, I'm not a big fan of lip colors that come in palettes. They never seem to apply right and just end up getting dirty from any powders that was in the same palette. Overall, I'm not a fan of palettes.

  6. Great price for this palette! I like that brush too. I might have to get one of those.
    I've been following your blog via bloglovin, but I'm still using GFC too, so I decided to follow with that too. =0)

    I agree that there shouldn't be so many shades of blue.

  11. Wow, you got a great deal! I haven't heard of this brand before, but I really like the colors in this palette. I'm very surprised that these colors came out pretty bold. They look like they would come off sheer.
