Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette Review & Swatches


Hey Everyone!

I have been using Coastal Scent 28 neutral palette since long and I was surprised to know that I haven’t reviewed it ever. When I use a particular product for months, I kind of get so engrossed with it that idea of review takes a back seat. I think I am quite late in reviewing it but I know this palette can never get out of the market especially for the neutral eye makeup lovers.

If you are new to this palette then follow me 🙂

Shade , Texture & Pigmentation:-

There are eight shades in each row  in which around eight shadows can be used as a highlighter. Palette is famous for MAC dupes and I will talk about each one of them in detail in another post. There  are around eight brown colour shadows which is a treat for brown lovers. Rest of the eyeshadows are dark shades such as black, burgundy and darker neutrals browns too.


Palette consists of both matte and shimmery eyeshadows but they are not that powdery. A neutral eye makeup lover will enjoy pairing them with each other. Using the palette is lot of fun .

As far as pigmentation is concerned, few of the shades are really good but some of them are chalky. They might be similar to MAC in shade but one can not compare the texture of this one with that of MAC eye shadows.

Staying power is around 3 hours and with primer underneath it’s around 4 hours.

Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette Swatches:-

You will notice that some of the shades are barely visible and for some the pigmentation is fab. Shades are powdery but definitely not chalky.

If you run out of a particular shade then you won’t get the individual shade separately from coastal scents which is kind of a big drawback.

Still! If you are on a budget, this palette is a good choice – something which you will not get in your regular store.

Wise She Rating – 3.5/5

  • Price Vs Quality – 4/5
  • Pigmentation – 3.5/5
  • Staying power – 3.5/5

  1. love the neatly done swatch pics :yes: N i dont think anyone will pay attention to the palette when ure lookin like that! :beauty:

  2. Similar palettes are available from for 6$ and free shipping. but its unbranded. BH cosmetics has the same thing and KKcentre HK also has the same palettes under ‘ES’ brand.. most likely from the same factory in China

    I wanted to order from Coastal scents but almost fainted when I saw the shipping charges. Criminal to charge $20 for shipping with increasing rates for everything u add not fair! I refuse to pay so much fr shipping so I got the 120 palette and 66 lip palette from buyincoins

        .I’ve yet to receive my packages 🙂 I ordered leggings, make up brushes, 120 eyeshadow palette and the 66 lip gloss palette. I was planning to buy from coastal scents but the high shipping put me off. The palettes have been reviewed many times but fr the make up brushes I had to watch a few Russian You tube videos to decide which ones to buy.

        Buyincoins has been reviewed quite a few times on wiseshe – that’s how I got to know about the site

    • i understand and i know that CS products are from China but buyincoins products are so cheap and i am afraid of their quality.

      • I agree.. the palettes are not for prolonged use and will hv to be tossed out after 1.5 to 2 years at the max.. for me its for that occasion when I need a certain shade of green or yellow but don’t want to spend 500 bucks for it. For everyday stuff I use Faces, etc… even MUA is made in China but I hope that there is some quality control there…

        Eyeliners, mascara, concealer, a big no..I think those should always be from good brands.
