Review & Swatches: Coastal Scents Shadow Pots

Thanks to a recent request from a subscriber, I was introduced to Coastal Scents Shadow Pots! Although they are already incredibly affordable at just under $2 a piece ($1.95 to be exact), I managed to find them during a sale at just $0.99 individually. Naturally, I snatched up far more than I should have to get a good sampling of everything the brand has to offer in the way of individual shadows. Unfortunately, many of the matte neutral shades were sold out at the time I was shopping, so I wasn't able to experience those. But, I still managed to get a good idea of what just about every other shimmery, colorful shade is like. Keep scrolling to see swatches!

Overall, I was very impressed with the quality these shadows offer. Nearly all are pigmented, smooth, and offer a fair amount of product for just $1.95. The only shades I wasn't absolutely head over heels for were some of the brighter mattes - their chalkier texture left a little to be desired. Still, with some layering they could get the job done!

In addition to a review, I was asked to do a comparison between Coastal Scents Shadow Pots and Makeup Geek Shadows. I was shocked to find that, while the quality is comparable, there isn't a whole lot of shade overlap! Scroll to the bottom of the post to find the few shades I picked as being the most similar among the many that I own from each collection. It's impressive, and speaks to just how unique each of the shadows from both lines really are!

Do you prefer one line over the other, or do you like to mix and match? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
