Coastal Scents Hot Pot Gunmetal

I love black eye shadows. There was a time when black eye shadows made me look like a panda, but with time I somewhat have managed to understand this shade. I love black eye shadows for dramatic night look and I love black shadows even for my everyday look.

We all need a black eye shadow in our vanity and today’s review is on Coastal Scents hotpot in Gunmetal.

My experience with Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Gunmetal :

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 sultry blackish grey with hints of burgundy and iridescent shimmers. It can be used alone or combined with other shades as well. Great for every skin tone. I have many black eye shadows in my vanity, but this one definitely stands out.

Texture: The shadow has smooth satiny 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.

MAC Dupe:-It is said that this shade is a dupe of MAC Typographic eye shadow. But Typographic is in matte finish and Coastal Scents Gunmetal is shimmery, satiny texture and less pigmented than MAC Typographic.

Urban Decay Blackheart:– This is a closet dupe of Urban Decay blackheart. Coastal Scents has done a great job in this. We are getting a UD dupe with an equally gorgeous shade but at a much lesser rate.

Final thoughts: I love this shade and this is a beautiful black. It looks very exotic, blends well, and lasts all day with or without a primer. I’m in love with this, its sooo overwhelming on my skin.

I would definitely purchase this and would recommend to everyone.
