I love these warm tones! Can I just say! Even before they became trendy. I came across these Coastal scents Hot Pots, after Googling reviews for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. I love those orange and berry shadows. However, I really didn't want to pay 50ish dollars. Also, I looked for it inUlta, Sephora, Macy's, JC Penny, any retail store that sells makeup and could not find it.
Each Hot Pot was $1.95. The palette is sold separately and it was $5.95. This palette does not have a mirror but they do sell ones with a mirror. They have sooooo many Hot Pots. I mean you can spend an entire day looking through all the Hot Pots and creating your dream palette or multiple palettes.
I find the quality comparable to my Too Faced Chocolate Palette. The mattes are especially comparable. The swatches are brush swatches and I noticed fall out with when swatching on my arm. However, when I blend out my crease I hadn't noticed that. I found it weird because I've never had that issue on my eyes. They are easy to blend.
I want to share my favorite shadows from the palette and my least favorite. I bought them online and the only reference was a picture and so I didn't know to what they would look like.
In order from favorite to least favorite:
1. Pumpkin Pie
3. Petal Peach
4. Pomegranate Red
6. Deep Roast
8. Raisin Berry
9. Amber Bronze
10. Chocolate Berry
11. Caramel Ice*
12. Deep Cantaloupe*
I wanted to mention that the reason I don't love (I still do like it and use) "Caramel Ice" is that it is a pinky cool-toned shimmer. I prefer golden shimmers. However, I do like it.
I don't love (I still do like it and use)"Deep Cantaloupe" because I expected it to be more vibrant. If you want the vibrant orange, almost neon look, you need a base. (I like using LaLa by ColourPop).
The palette is small and thin. I can almost grab it like my iPhone 7 plus.
Here I wanted to show that I added a bit of Alchemy by ColourPop. It is a great shadow that depending on the eyeshadow underneath it will give a different affect.
I hope you enjoyed this post and give this Hot Pots a try!
