After my Kryolan blush palette review here I am with another blush palette of mine. Yes after lipsticks I always crave for blushes and when it comes about coastal scent 10 blush palette I thought it is a good time to grab the blush palette on their 50% off black Friday sales.
And finally my parcel arrives within 20 days of shipment.

Let’s see what coastal scents have to say about this blush:-

The blush comes in a nice black matte case with the name “10 blush palette” printed on the upper lid of the palette. Being sleek in packaging it easily carries anywhere but the only problem is that the blush palette is without mirror and blush brush so that might be a problem to use it everywhere. The blush case is not sturdy at all and I always feel scare of dropping it anyhow while using it.
Now coming to my experience with the blush palette:-
As I told earlier I am pretty much into blushes now after Lipsticks. And after grabbing my first ever blush palette from coastal scents I was dying to try it. The blush palette comes with 10 blushes which I think is pretty dupable but all in one case makes the palette “bang on”. Coming to the shades they are mostly for fair to medium skin tone beauties. The shades are from pretty pink, coral and browns. The texture of the blushes is really soft and smooth and its blends pretty well. Coming to the pigmentation I must say this blush palette is medium pigmented so one need 2-3 stroke to build up the shade on cheekbones. The blush is a great product for beginners or for those who love to apply blush at work. As the blush shades are light shades so they are just perfect for day wear mostly and for night out one has layer it to make it bit dark. The staying power of blush is okay as it stays hardly 4-5 hours on my cheeks during winters so I guess in summer the staying power might be drop down a hour or so.
So here are the good and bad points about this blush palette:-
The good points:-
- Sleek packaging.
- Travel friendly.
- The shades are perfect for day wear.
- Best for fair to medium skin tone beauties.
- Price is reasonable when you get it in offer.
- The shades are medium pigmented for which it is easy to build the shade slowly.
- Perfect for beginners.
- Stays for 4-5 hours.
The bad points:-
- The packaging is not sturdy.
- Medium pigmented.
- One needs 2-3 strokes to build the color.
My ratings: – 3.5/5
My recommendation: – This blush is perfect for beginners but due to availability issue as everybody don’t have credit card it might be a problem to get this blush. Else I must say the shades are pretty dupable so one will not feel the urge to buy it unless it is available easily moreover the pigmentation is also nothing to worth the price so I may suggest to skip this palette J
