All About Coastal Scents Revealed Palette 2 & Urban Decay Dupes
I have been contemplating on doing this post since a few days and finally Taps asked about reviewing the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette, I was sure about doing it as soon as possible!
Today it is the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette 2 that we will be talking about. The brand is known for the amazing makeup products which are great in quality and are much cheaper than the high end brand products. The Coastal Scents offer many cheap dupes of some great palettes and other makeup products from Urban Decay, MAC etc.
I happened to use the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette for an Everyday eye look of mine and so sharing my views on it is a much easier task now!
There has been a lot of buzz doing all over the blogging world about Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette to be considered the closest dupe of Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Well, considering the price of UD palette, this obviously seems a nice deal! The texture is smooth and glides easily upon swatching. Although there are some shimmery metallic shade which are not much preferred by everyone! But yes the quality is really good so you can deal with that!
I have the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette which is popular as a dupe of the famous Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. Talking about the texture and pigmentation, Urban Decay is clearly a winner but that does not mean that Coastal Scents Revealed Palette is any less! Although the fall outs and smoothness of the shades in the UD palette is certainly commendable, the CS palette score over the shades & pigmentation equally well.
I don’t own the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette but our Wise She Beauty Madhubani has all the three Urban Decay Palettes and so we can clearly have a close comparison on these two and figure out the claim of the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette being actually a close dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette.
Below is Madhubani’s Eye makeup using the UD Naked 3 Palette.
Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette has a wide range of 20 eye shadows in a single palette while the Urban Decay Naked palettes have 12 shades each!
Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette consists of twenty different shades in this eye palette. These are a mix of mattes, shimmers and highlighter shades. The texture of these eye shades is powder based velvet smooth pigments. There are matte shade and some metallic hues in this eye palette.
While the UD Naked 3 Palette consists of rosy toned neutrals. It is actually a very feminine pallet with pretty shades and superb texture. They blend easily and are thus easy to work with.
A close look at the swatches of both these palettes definitely make things clearer.
When it comes to quality and smoothness of the eye shades Urban Decay is surely a favorite but given the fact that it retails for almost double the price of the Revealed 2 Palette, we can gladly opt for the Coastal Scents palette and consider ourselves fortunate to have the closest dupe of the same in a way less price tag!
