[Review] 15 Color Concealer Palette (Coastal Scents Dupe) + Swatches

Friday, April 17, 2015

Hi, lovelies! I've been wanting to get my hands on one of these concealer palettes for a really long time because I always have a hard time deciding on which shade to choose for concealers since I need different shades for color correction and so on. I didn't really feel like getting so many separate concealers when I simply can get a whole palette with several different shades to choose from, like this one. I'm not too picky about concealers and since most cream type concealers like these have worked really well for me, I decided to get this cheap Coastal Scents Concealer Palette Dupe from eBay.

SAM_2077 My first thought when I got this concealer palette was that it was a lot smaller than I expected (that's what she said). I watched a couple of reviews that other people made about this palette, and based on that I just thought it would be a lot bigger (maybe I'm just a giant, haha). I was a little disappointed, but I can't really complain since it was so cheap (I got for about $6).

SAM_2109I really like this Concealer Palette and I'm surprised by how good the quality of the concealers actually is, especially considering how cheap it was. The coverage is good & buildable and the lastability is as good as any other concealer. The texture is really creamy and it applies smoothly. However, it might turn out to be a little too dry for some people. Just make sure to use a good moisturizer before your base makeup routine when you use this (which is something I always do since I have sensitive/combination skin). Another thing I like is that it obviously has a lot of different shades and will definitely fit almost anyone that has anything from very fair to tan skin. To my surprise, the 3 shades from the "middle row" turned out to fit my skin the best. I thought that even the 3 lightest "neutral" shades would be too dark for me, but when they are applied, the colors actually turn out a lot lighter than they appear to be. For me, most of the other shades are still perfect since I can use the lighter shades for highlighting and the darker ones for contouring. However, this palette might not be suitable for those who have dark skin with cool undertones since the only dark shades on this palette have a warm undertone. But like I mentioned earlier, there are so many different shades that are perfect for color correction and highlighting, so I definitely think it's worth giving a try no matter what skin color or undertone you have.
