Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Coral Review & Swatches


Hi All,

Have you had those moments, when you’ve picked something that struck your fancy an decided to be daring..and the later realized maybe you’d been too impulsive?

When I chose this Hot Pot Shade, I was in my Coral Crazy Phase and Imagined myself in Coral from head to toes…Coral dress, coral purse coral shoes and yes..coral eyeshadow. So I told Upsi I wanted this but when I got it I chickened out! I couldn’t fathom wearing a coral eyeshadow. But I was totally enamored by the shade cause its the perfect CORAL BLUSH EVER!!…Read on to know more..

My take on Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Coral:

  • Color:This shade is described as a highly pigmented eyeshadow featuring a bright coral hue with a satin finish. The eyeshadow lives up to its description and is an out of the world kinda shade..Its such a bright Coral and I don’t think anyone can ever dislike this shade.
  • Price:ร‚ย  $1.99
  • Pigmentation & Texture:The pigmentation is amazing…The finger swatches are just after a single swipe! Imagine that! Its butter soft and so easy to blend…
  • Staying Power: I have used this as a blush and it stays on for about 5hrs. I did wear it on my lids at home in a flight of fancy, but that was for about 3hrs after which my Hubby’s pointed looks became too much to bear and I washed it off ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m still trying to scrape up the guts to use this as an eyeshadow…Any ideas gals? I wanted to use in first in a more subtle manner so as to get used to it…..Till then…this is like…THE MOST AMAZING CORAL BLUSH!!

  2. I had a similar shade Purse from Aldo which was so poor in quality that in 3 months only without even regular use it got messed up :(. I luv Corals.

    btw pairing this wid green and brown e/s to create a nice smokey wearable look will match up wid a nice peach lehnga, having some pistachio green colored detailing, it will lloook sooo good ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Hi Zara, I have seen that you do a lot of CS reviews and I am dying to get their smokey palette. How do you buy these hot pots? Since their shipping is so expensive i am guessing buying products with 2-3 others would come cheaper. Is there anyone who is buying from CS or wants to now? I want to get their smokey palette!!

  5. Wowwwww shade!!! I mean Blush ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think you can use it as a very light translucent tint all over the lid. remove the extra colour with a cotton ball. It’ll actually look natural and fresh too. Use lots of Kajal/black eye liner so the eyes don’t look yellow ๐Ÿ™‚ I donno if that happens though :p Coral lippi can make the teeth look yellow, so…
