Coastal Scents Hot Pot M17 in Burnt Umber
Brown eye shadow is a widely worn shade, though I am not a big fan as I feel it blends with my eye color completely. But if you want some color which is not too stark and would look natural, then brown will probably look best on you. So, today my review is on a brown colored eye shadow from Coastal Scents named “Burnt Umber.”
About Coastal Scents Hot Pot:
We offer Blush Hot Pots labeled with the letter B and our eye shadows in different finishes identified by the following letters: Matte (M) and Satin/Shimmer (S). You may also select shades from our Creative Me #1 Palette labeled CM and our Metal Mania and Creative Me #2 Palettes labeled ME.
My experience with Coastal Scents Hot Pot Burnt Umber:
Packaging: The eye shadow pan is housed in a sturdy plastic case with a scissor lock. The plastic case keeps the pan safe and protects the product inside from any sort of damages. The shade number is written at base.
Shade: Revamp your eyes with this rustic, deep berry hue that delivers a matte finish. This color looks like a regular matte dark brown in the pan but when applied it you can actually see the subtle warmth of a reddish undertone which is really sultry. It works great for both an all over lid color and a crease color. I just love how it can be used for a casual-neutral look as well as a night time look. It can be used alone or combined with other shades as well.
Texture: It comes from their Matte range and trust me, there are very few brands who can make such gorgeous textures in matte finishes. The color does not feel chalky and there is no fall out at all. It is easy to apply and blends well with other shades too.
Pigmentation: Well pigmented. It shows even without a primer. Very rich and one swipe gives a decent punch of color on eyes. The shade is buildable and thus can be intensified as per choice. A primer beneath works wonder.
Staying power: The staying power is pretty nice and it stayed intact on me for more than 5 hours. No smudging or fading.
Summing up my likes and Dislikes:-
What I like about Coastal Scents Hot Pot M17 in Burnt Umber:
- Gorgeous shade.
- Fabulous Matte finish.
- Smooth texture.
- Blends like a dream.
- Well pigmented.
- Decent staying power.
- Cute packaging.
- Dirt Cheap.
- Pick up your own colors and customize your palette.
What I don’t like about Coastal Scents Hot Pot M17 in Burnt Umber:
- Availability in India.
This gorgeous shade is a dupe of MAC ‘Saddle’ eye shadow. Coastal Scents has done a great job in this. We are getting a MAC dupe with an equally gorgeous shade, equally great texture, pigmentation and color payoff but at a much lesser rate.
Final thoughts: This is a pretty shade, a non-scary brown! It’s easy to apply so it goes on really smooth and opaquely without much effort. It’s versatile, as it can be used to create a smoky eye or combined with other shades.
I would definitely purchase this and would recommend to everyone.
