Neutral Coastal Scents eye shadows | Swatches

If you hadn't seen when I hauled these eye shadows, you can click here.

Coastal Scents Neutral Eye shadow Haul & Swatches

I really like Coastal Scents eyeshadows, the prices are unbeatable for the quality you get. Definitely great for those pursuing professional makeup, without having to spend a small fortune to start up. Of course you can always upgrade and  purchase more high-end professional makeup when you get better too.

All of these photos are taken without flash btw, and the colours are still beautiful! No primer was used either, so just imagine how much they would pop with a good primer. What's interesting is how buttery smooth the mattes are, it almost seems as if they're satins.

  • Sandstorm- Satin neutral champagne e/s that would make for a pretty highlight. 
  • Mai Tai- Light mauve e/s with rose gold shimmer (camera just isn't doing it justice)
  • Dark Chocolate- Deep taupe satin e/s with plum untertones
  • Timeless Taupe- Taupe grey matte e/s with plum undertones

  • Amaretto- Reddened brown shimmer e/s  
  • Barista- Medium warm brown matte e/s (great blending shade)
  • Deep Roast- Deep warm brown matte e/s
  • Burnished Brunette- Deep taupe satin e/s with cool undertones (despite the camera making it look a little warm. This is a strange colour to me, not quite brown but not grey either, hence I'm calling it a taupe.)

Disclaimer: These products were bought with my money. Opinions are my own.


  1. Love the colors. You can definitely make a nice neutral palette buying the single shadows from Coastal Scents. I need to pick up a few more myself.

    1. I'm always tempted to pick up more when they have a sale, but I have to tell myself no for now, they're nice quality!

  2. These neutral colours are nice and very pigmented.

    1. Yes they are! I was very impressed, I think I like them more than the brightly coloured ones now.

  3. They look lovely and thanks for your lovely comment...

    1. You're welcome, thank you for yours as well!
