Coastal Scents Hot Pot S12 Brandeis Blue – MAC Freshwater Eyeshadow Dupe
Yesterday I received a packet containing 34 Coastal Scents hot pot eye shadows and no prize for guessing who the sender here is. Yes yes yes, she is our very own Santa.
I was soo overwhelmed seeing the little pot of eye shadows that it took me hours to decide which one Iâ€™ll choose first for the review. My eyes were hovering over the shades when they got stuck in one and Iâ€™ll be reviewing that first.
So here is the review on Coastal Scents Hot pot S12 in Brandeis Blue.

My experience with Coastal Scents Hot Pot S12 Brandeis 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: An utterly gorgeous greenish-blue color with iridescent shimmers. It can be used alone or combined with other shades as well. Great for fair to medium skin toned beauties. I have many peacock blue eye shadows in my vanity, but this one is the best. It has a dual tone, sometimes it look more greenish, sometimes bluish. It varies in color when seen in different lights or from different angles. Just the way a peacock blue is supposed to look like. A totally OMG kind of shade.
Texture: The shadow has smooth texture and has fine pearly 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.
Summing up my likes and Dislikes:-
What I like about Coastal Scents Hot Pot S12 Brandeis Blue:
- Gorgeous shade.
- Pretty iridescent shimmers.
- Smooth satiny texture.
- Blends like a dream.
- Well pigmented.
- Stays long.
- Cute packaging.
- Dirt Cheap.
- Pick up your own colors and customise your pallet.
This gorgeous shade is a dupe of MAC freshwater 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: I love this shade and this is a beautiful color that makes my brown eyes pop. If you’re a blue eye shadow lover, pick this one up without any second thought, you’ll love it. Completely gorgeous color, blends well, 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.
