88 Matte Palette

I think I might be the last person on earth to get this palette, but I finally did! I bought mine from an ebay seller for $20 total including shipping. CLICK HERE for the ebay store. It took about 3 weeks for it to come because it had to go through customs from Asia. The seller shipped it out a day after I bought though so they definitely did their part. It also came nicely packaged in bubble wrap and none of the eye shadows were broken. The seller also sells the neutral palette from Coastal Scents for cheaper. I'd highly recommend them.

These were swatched dry with no base.






















Doesn't this row look like a row of blushes?






The eyeshadows get a bit chalky after swipes, but it's no big deal because it doesn't get that messy.

Some colors are more pigmented than others, but this is a great palette to have if you're iffy on buying colors you don't use on a daily basis. I've always wanted hot pink and red eye shadows, but I could never justify shelling out the money for them if I wasn't going to use them all the time.

I want some matte shadows since all mine are shimmery/frost finishes but I don't want to spend money on 88 mattes that I'll rarely use o.o I've had my eye on the 42 matte double stack from coastal scents but i dunno bout that one too lol

Don't you love all the colors, I have the 88 one too and it makes me save money on other eyeshadow whenever I'm tempted to buy more.. Is this the same one as the CS one?

Whoa!! You swapped all the colors!! Did it take a long time to wash your arm? Don't worry, I don't have the 88 palette. I don't think I'll be getting it :P

Lily said...

Jenn, yeah this is the same one as the CS palette. I just ordered mine from ebay, that's all :)

Abcgrrrl, it didn't take too long to wash my arm. Some of the lighter colors just wiped right off. It took longer when I got to the darker colors cuz I had to wash my arm for those and some of them took some scrubbing to get off even with soap and water.
