My experience with Coastal Scents Hot Pot Steel Blue :

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: A deep cadet blue with a shimmer finish. It is not as dark as shown in the pot, but never-the-less, it is gorgeous. It can be used alone or combined with other shades as well. I blend it with a light blue or a highlighter and I have an absolute winner.

Texture: The shadow has smooth texture and has fine shimmers, which are almost non-visible on eyes, but adds a beautiful sheen. 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 pretty flush of color on eyes. The shade is buildable and thus can be intensified as per choice.

Staying power: The staying power is awesome and it stayed intact on me for more than 6 hours. No smudging or fading. Though it comes out with a minimal cleanse in one swipe.

This gorgeous shade is a dupe of MAC deep truth eye shadow. Coastal Scents has done a great job in this. We are getting a MAC dupe with an equally gorgeous shade, equally good texture, equally great pigmentation and color payoff but at a much lesser rate.

Final thoughts:-
This is a beautiful colour! It’s easy to apply so it goes on really opaquely without much effort, and stays bold without fading over time. It’s versatile, as it can be used to create a blue smoky eye or combined with highlighters for that pop. If you’re a blue eye shadow lover, pick this one up without any second thought, you’ll love it.
I would definitely purchase this and would recommend to everyone.

Rating: 5/5
