â€œCoastal Scentsâ€ is doing a great job with their hotpots. They are super-cheap, highly pigmented and blend like a dream. If you want the pleasure of owning the beautiful colors of MAC and Urban Decay eye-shadows in a budget then these are the stunning dupes. Yes, you are getting the MAC and UD dupes with equally good textures, pigmentation and staying power and at 1/12 of their price, some hotpots are even better than their MAC dupes.
Till now, I am truly very much impressed with their hotpots. So, todayâ€™s review is on another hot pot from Coastal Scents, Thistle Lavender M15.
About Coastal Scents Hot Pot:
We offer Blush Hot Pots labeled with the letter B and our eye shadows in different finishes identified by the following letters: Matte (M) and Satin/Shimmer (S). You may also select shades from our Creative Me #1 Palette labeled CM and our Metal Mania and Creative Me #2 Palettes labeled ME.
My experience with Coastal Scents Hot Pot M15 Thistle Lavender:
Packaging:Â 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:Â Coastal Scents describe it as a profound lavender hue with a soft, matte finish. It is pastel bluish purple which looks great for the subtle morning looks and can also be paired with bold shades for a more dramatic night look. It can be used alone or combined with other shades as well. Great for every tone.
Texture: I love the textures of CS hotpots. This is from their â€œmatteâ€ range. But unfortunately, the texture of this particular shade is dry and chalky, definitely not as silky as their other shades.
Pigmentation: Very very very poor pigmentation. It just refuses to show up on lids.
Staying Power: It didnâ€™t even stay for an hour on me. I was amazed how quickly it just vanished from my lids, even with a good primer beneath.
What I like about Coastal Scents Hot Pot M15 Thistle Lavender:
- Pretty shade.
- No fallouts.
- Cute packaging.
What I donâ€™t like about Coastal Scents Hot Pot M15 Thistle Lavender:
- Poor pigmentation.
- Dry and chalky
- Low staying power.
- The pigments just vanish when you try to blend.
- Not available in India.
It is a dupe of MAC Cobalt pro eyeshadow, but just color wise. Texture, pigmentation wise the Cobalt is far better. I raved about CS hotpots as they were even better than their MAC dupes, but this one failed terribly. 🙁
Final Thoughts: The color is nice, though matte formula is actually my favorite, but unless it has a gorgeous color pay off, I really fail to work with it. This happens with this too. The chalky texture, poor pigmentation and low staying power upset me and I would never buy this or recommend this to anybody else!!
