My take on the Product
I haven’t tried the original Revealed Palette but from what I can tell from reviews/swatches online, Revealed 2 has more pinks, berries, plum and taupe shades – like a more cool toned version of the original Revealed palette. It reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes. The eye shadow palette containing 20 shadows comes in a slim cardboard box – very efficient and compact packaging which may not be very luxurious looking but its fairly sturdy and travel friendly. The only thing missing here is a mirror.
I have always associated Coastal Scents with the large 88 and 120 color palettes that offer loads of shades – not necessarily very great quality. But I was blown away by the Revealed 2 palette. Almost all the eye shadows felt really buttery and smooth in texture, had excellent color pay off and actually stay on very well on my lids (without a primer). You can tell how pigmented these are by the swatch pictures. The palette contains 6 matte shades and the remaining 12 are shimmers. The mattes were silky smooth and very easy to blend, soft mattes aren’t very easy to find! The shimmer/frost eye shadows have a lovely finish and great texture as well. The only shadow that wasn’t as great as the rest in terms of texture was the black one with cherry shimmer – 2nd from right in the bottom row. It has a slightly gritty texture and there might be fall out issues with this one. But the rest are pretty amazing.
I haven’t had a chance to wear all the shades yet but I’ve used about the half of these so far and I’m very impressed with the staying power. Even after 8 hours of wear without a primer, the shadows were intact with barely any signs of creasing or fading. I did layer the shades well so that might be one factor for the good wear time. For this price, I think this is a fantastic palette! The eye shadow quality is amazing and honestly, a lot better than I had expected. The shade range is great – you can easily do a soft eye or a dramatic look with these, 20 shades give you a lot of room for variety!

If you’ve been wanting the Urban Decay Naked palettes, these are cheaper dupe and many of these shades look similar to the Urban Decay ones. I highly recommend this palette to everyone! I only wish Coastal Scents reduces their shipping charges, the worldwide shipping rate is rather high right now!
