Review Coastal Scents 88 warm palette

Last week, while badly reviewing some cream eyeshadow from Avon I realised I hadn't talked about eyeshadow yet in these 2months of blogging. Honestly, I don't wear eyeshadow every day because I value my sleep highly -read: lazy- I usually slap on one cream colour over the lid which I will talk about soon. But when I have more time on my hands I love playing with eyeshadow! And this is my favourite toy:

I bought this palette several months ago during a sale of Coastal Scents, their palettes are often on sale - just check the site regularly. I'm a neutral kind of girl and I just had to have this palette, everyone was raving about it at that time, I couldn't be left behind... I feel the same regarding the Naked Palette from UD at the moment :)

When opening there's a mirror and 2 brushes, which are crap so I just leave them in there for decoration... I cleaned my palette a bit to take the picture because there was powder all over from using it. The pans aren't particular big but not small either. For its price I think you get the proper amount out of it. As you can see there are a lot of highlight colours and a variety of colours, it's not just brown - blue purple etc is also available. Not all of them contain shimmer, but most of them do - one a bit more than the other. Pigmentation is very good, here is a close-up:

I really like this palette and would recommend it to anyone, I use mine a lot, it costs about 25$. Only downside is Coastal Scents shipping to Europe, which is pricey - around 15$. But there's an alternative called Zoeva, they also offer great palettes of the same quality with lower shipping rates as it is located in Germany, mostly priced between 15 and 20euros, but if you divide the amount of eyeshadows you get the price is very fair. They have a new nude shimmer in stock, I've already set my heart on it!!
