I'm not sure if I've mentioned this till now, but I've always been a fan of Coastal Scents products. I always wanted to place an order on their site, but the high shipping fees were horrible. In June, I saw that they were launching a new palette, Revealed 2 and I gave in and decided to give it a try. To celebrate the launch, the price of the palette was only 10$ instead of 20$ and that made my decision even easier. Now, after I used the palette for some time and I made my opinion about it, I think it's time to share my thoughts with all of you. So, if you're interested in finding out if this palette is a Naked 3 dupe or you're just curious about what this palette has to offer, read on!
Coastal Scents Revealed 2 eye shadow palette contains 20 neutral eyeshadows and it's a lovely mix between shimmers & mattes. With its pink, berry, plum & taupe shades this palette is the perfect choice for fall. The packaging is a slim cardboard box, very compact and travel friendly, due to its size. At a first look, I thought that the packaging is not so sturdy and I was afraid that the pallet will get ruined if I dropped it but that wasn't the case. It survived very well to 2 major shipments so it's good. The palette contains 6 matte shades and 12 shimmers and to my surprise, all the shadows have a buttery texture and are very very pigmented. They have a great pay off and a very good staying power (around 7 hours, without creasing), even without a primer. The only bad thing that I can say about this palette is the fact that some shadows tend to have a lot of fall out. It's nothing new under the sun, because till now I didn't find the palette that doesn't have that but I thought I should mention it.
It is said that this palette is a dupe after the Naked 3 palette and I would have to agree. Some of the shades are similar but you should keep in mind that Revealed 2 offers 20 shades and Naked 3 only 12. Also, the price difference between the 2 is quite something, you pay 20$ for Revealed 2 and 54$ for Naked 3. I have them both and although I like my Naked 3 palette if I would have to choose the best one between the two, I would go for Revealed 2. The price/quality is amazing and it's so worth trying it out.
Overall, I think this is a great palette! The price is budget friendly, the quality is good and the shades are awesome!
What do you think of Revealed 2? Would you give this palette a try?
Till next time, take care and don't forget to smile!
