Going Pink for a cause! Coastal Scents – Think Pink Palette

Welcome back to my blog! Hope everybody had a good week. My days at work is just getting too much to handle these days. But it’s cool! Another week of work, and then I am off for a vacaaaayy, baby!! Yesss! My brother is getting married, and I am soooo looking forward to welcoming the new member and dress up and have a blast, but most importantly; I am dying (like literally every single day!) for a break from my work and life here. I will be back next month, since I am utilizing all my annual leaves for this. Hence, I won’t be posting anything on blog till then. Apologizing in advance!

Anyhooo! Moving on to today’s post, since it’s the month of PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness; I decided to dedicate my post for this cause. With the Burj Khalifa going pink, I am here to review The Coastal Scents – Think Pink Palette, going Pink for this cause.

This was my first Coastal Scent purchase ordered via Laylam.ae. They are local merchants here in the UAE and offer a lot of brands that are not available physically in the market here. Thier service and delivery is very prompt.

My review on the Think Pink Palette:
The palette comes in a sleek, black, sturdy case with a full size mirror and all the Hot Pot™ fits snugly into their magnetic palette. Despite the 12 colors, it’s very compact to carry while you’re travelling. If only it came with an applicator or makeup brush, my life would have been complete.

As the product claims, the palette contains 12 super gorgeous highly pigmented eye shadows which includes pinks, silver and even matte black to let your creativity loose and create looks ranging from innocent-girl-next-door look to the bad girl look.

All the shades are individual Hot Pot™ from the Coastal Scent brand and can be purchased separately if one wishes to. Each Hot Pot™ has its unique name and code mentioned on the flipside of the colors.

The pans can be depotted and replaced with other colors. Hence, all the colors can be individually bought from their website. The pans can be removed easily without damaging much of the product.

All the colors in the palette are super pigmented and has a smooth finish. The palette includes a combination of matte and metallic shimmer. The matte colors have sheer to opaque finish, where as the metallic shimmers have frosty to semi-opaque finish.

What I love about this palette is that, they have include one matte black eyeshadow which is perfect to create smokey look. The colors blend easily and can be used wet as well for intense color and shimmer.

Final Verdict:
Who doesn’t like pink? I was never fond of pink till I got this palette. With this palette, you can create i-am-an-angel-princess to bad-ass-biker-girl look. It’s like bundle of Barbie joy palette. I got this palette long back, hence I am not sure if local merchants still have them now with all the other companies coming up in the market. Nevertheless, Coastal Scents will always be my first love for makeup.
