Coastal Scents Think Pink Palette Review And Swatches!!

Being that it is October which is national breast cancer awareness month, it seems a lot of cosmetic companies are doing their part to help raise money for awareness and cancer research. Coastal Scents is one of those companies. I have been a lover of Coastal Scents for quite some time and find their products to be very affordable. While browsing one day I came across this palette and I had to have it. It is the Coastal Scents Think Pink Palette. It is the prettiest collection of pinks, peaches, and some dark smokey colors. Let's take a look...
 This is what the palette itself looks like. It has 12 shades in varying finishes. You have some matte and shimmer. The pans are pretty decent in size. About the size of a quarter. I like that they come in a removable magnetic palette so you can take the shades out if you want. The packaging itself is not the most durable or well made so I wouldn't suggest taking this palette anywhere where it may be thrown around or have the possibility of being crushed. There is a nice big mirror though.
 This is the top row of the palette. All swatches are done on bare skin without primer. The shades are from left to right:Baby Pink, Rosy Pink, Cinnabar Rose, and Magenta Pink. All the shades but Baby Pink are matte. The eyeshadows are better than I thought it would be. They applied smooth but were a little chalky especially the Baby Pink. The pigmentation was pretty good.
 This is the middle row of the palette. From left to right: Light Pink, Mauve Frost, Pink Frost, and Coral Rose. All of the shades in this row are shimmer shades but they are beautiful. They are smooth and pigmented.
The last row are the bottom smokier shades. From left to right: White Silver, Light Plum, Steel Grey, and Gunmetal.

FINAL VERDICT: Overall I really like this product. The proceeds go to a charity for cancer research which is amazing in it's own right. It costs 6.95 which is reasonable. I also like that these are full size pans and not the tiny ones like you get in the 88 palettes or the go palettes. I also like that this palette gives you the colors you need to do multiple looks from a soft romantic eye to a dark plum smokey eye. They are a bit chalky but not enough that I would say this isn't worth the money. I really like this overall but I would like to see a bit better work on the packaging.

This palette is only available until the 31st so if you want it you need to act soon. I also want to point out that any of the products that I review on here are purchased by me out of my own pocket. I do not review anything for money and give nothing but my honest opinion.
